Other Transaction Authority (OTA)
through Consortiums

What is Other Transaction Authority (OTA)?

Other Transactions (OTs) are contracting agreements that are generally not subject to the federal laws and regulations that apply to government procurement contracts (e.g., FAR/DFARS). OTs are not standard procurement contracts, grants, or cooperative agreements and are typically distinguished according to whether its purpose is for research or a prototype. Other Transactions are Research and Development (R&D) or prototype projects which focus on enhancing the mission effectiveness of military personnel and the supporting platforms, systems, components, or materials proposed to be acquired or developed by the Department of Defense, or to improvement of platforms, systems, components, or materials in use by the Armed Forces.” Prototypes developed through OTA may include physical or virtual models used to evaluate the technical or manufacturing feasibility or military utility of a particular technology or process, concept, end item, or system. Hence, a very wide range of activities can be pursued under an OT for Prototypes.

Each military service has authority to execute OTs up to $100M, and there are no limits on how many OTs may be executed by the services or the cumulative value of such awards. Beyond the $100M threshold for individual OTs, USD(AT&L) must provide authorization to proceed. There is no limit to the number or dollar value of OTs that the Defense Department may execute in aggregate, but DPAP has counseled for caution when using OTs for Prototypes given the unstructured environment in which they are awarded and administered.

OTAs are awarded through the various Consortiums associated with the particular agency who is funding the R&D project.
