InSitech has been engaged with the Air Force for the past nine months in anticipation of the recently released solicitation for a Manager to develop a Space Enterprise Consortium to deliver prototype contracting solutions under a five (5) year Other Transaction Agreement (OTA). The contact is a rapid acquisition mechanism with an anticipated $100 Million ceiling that doesn't carry burdensome Federal Acquisition Regulations.
InSitech has prepared a compelling response to this solicitation and is seeking prospective consortium members. InSitech's team brings successful OTA administration experience, an SMC legacy and top-tier relationships across the commercial space community. This experience will enable a Space Enterprise Consortium that consists of both traditional and non-traditional government contractors, including small and large businesses, not-for-profits, and academia.
As outlined in the solicitation, the Consortium and OTA will be focused on “New Space” companies with agile development and deployment processes, while leveraging partnerships with commercial industry and the civil space sector. The anticipated use of this OTA will include Government investments in prototype development to reduce risk and increase constellation refresh rates to improve the availability of new technology on-orbit.
At this time, InSitech is seeking non-binding Letter of Intent (LOIs) from prospective members that fill out a few details below:
