Talk to an Acquisition Expert

Unparalleled Support to Help You Acquire Mission-Critical Technology

Align your project scope and requirements to a customized acquisition strategy guided by NSTXL’s team of experts. From RPP refinement to post-award milestone management, we support government program offices throughout the entire project lifecycle.

Take Your Prototypes Further, Faster with OTAs

Other Transaction Agreements (OTAs) are a non-traditional contracting method designed to fast-track research and prototype development. By leveraging commercial contracting structures, OTAs encourage involvement from companies outside the DoD’s network, expanding your reach to acquire emerging technologies.

Keep Pace with Tech

Stay ahead of the curve with direct access to the latest technologies that give the U.S. a competitive advantage.

Faster Time to Award

Decrease time to award with an average submission timeline of 100 days compared to 12 to 24 months with traditional contracting.

Diversify Your Reach

Increase engagement from the non-traditional community and research institutions to meet your capability gaps.
