Consortiums Supporting Government
Other Transaction Authority (OTA) Opportunities

Capture2Proposal understands the importance of Consortium membership for government contractors, research facilities, and other small businesses and start-ups. The opportunities to partner with the government on research, prototyping, and R&D projects through the consortia are invaluable, particularly given the rising popularity of Other Transaction Authority (OTA) awards, which are often competed solely through the various consortiums.

As such, we strive to maintain a current list of the 35 major consortium of interest to government contractors, and to always help foster relationships that lead to government business opportunities.
