C5 accelerates the development and deployment of new capabilities to the Warfighter through the use of Other Transaction Authority. C5 gives members an innovative and commonsense acquisition mechanism for development of new technologies and products to meet government customer requirements. The Office of the Secretary of Defense requested that the Army establish a new OTA to address C4ISR and cyber-technology requirements. In response, C5 was formed. Based upon the simplicity and transparency of its business model, C5 was awarded an initial three-year, OTA with the Army in July 2014, and a 10-year, no-ceiling, follow-on OTA in April 2017. In April 2018, the Marine Corps Systems Command signed a 5-year no-ceiling agreement with C5 for the use of OTA.

The Medical CBRN Defense Consortium (MCDC) was formed in response to the Government’s expressed interest to establish an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) with an eligible entity or group of entities, to include industry, academic, and not-for-profit partners, for advanced development efforts to support the Department of Defense’s (DoD) medical pharmaceutical and diagnostic requirements as related to enhancing the mission effectiveness of military personnel.

Through the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear Defense (JPEO-CBRND), the Medical Countermeasures Systems (MCS) Joint Project Management Office is always looking for innovative, safe and effective medical solutions to counter CBRN threats. The usage of an OTA allows government to partner with the MCDC to leverage cutting edge R&D and develop prototypes from commercial sources. This gives MCS an agile and flexible way to develop medical countermeasures using new and innovative technology.

The MCDC provides the flexibility for a better public and private collaboration by providing access to innovative concepts, ideas, and technologies from traditional and non-traditional technology providers. Through the OTA with the MCDC the JPEO-CBRND and MCS are looking to work with new industry partners to provide soldiers with safe and effective medical countermeasures.

Example Technical Areas of Interest:

i. Therapeutic MCM prototypes targeting viral, bacterial, and biological toxins and MCM enabling technologies

ii. Single and multiple-drug autoinjector delivery devices

iii. Vaccine-manufacturing platforms

iv. Prototypes for the prophylaxis, treatment and diagnosis of CBRN threats, including Acute Radiation Syndrome and chemical nerve agents

v. Systems to increase the speed, accuracy, and confidence of agent identification and disease diagnosis

vi. Advanced development and manufacturing capabilities
