NT Concepts, a leading provider of intelligence and national security solutions, recently joined C5 to help accelerate their National Security growth vector. Through the use of an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA), C5 provides an acquisition path to connect buyers and sellers in the broad Command, Control, Communications, Computers, Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (C4ISR) domain. The tool’s agile framework enables fast, cost-effective, and flexible procurements for rapidly prototyping technology solutions.

The C5 OTA approach fits well with NT Concepts’ mission to deliver advanced data analytics, artificial intelligence/machine learning, and geospatial solutions to meet marketplace demand.

"Engaging with C5 provides the opportunity for us to rapidly solve the hard problems facing our Intelligence and Defense customers," said Chris Cusano, Executive Vice President of NT Concepts. "The OTA construct allows for more collaboration between Government and contractors, giving versatility and adaptability not found under traditional FAR procurements. The reduced acquisition times and overhead equate to solutions delivered at the speed of mission need."

About C5

C5 is a nonprofit consortium composed of leading companies and institutions in the C4ISR and cyber technology domains. C5 accelerates the development and deployment of new capabilities to the Warfighter through the use of an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA). As an alternative to the often-complex Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which may discourage non-traditional and small businesses from seeking to work with the Government, OTAs provide a commonsense, flexible and user-friendly way of linking government buyers and commercial sellers of technology through a rapid, efficient and cost-effective acquisition instrument.
