About CEED

CEED is a consortium composed of leading companies and institutions in the Energy, Environmental and Demilitarization technology sectors.

Through the use of Other Transaction Authority, CEED accelerates the development and deployment of new capabilities to the Warfighter. CEED provides members an innovative and commonsense acquisition mechanism for development of new technologies and products to meet government customer requirements.

In April 2017, CEED entered into 10-year agreement with the Department of the Army to facilitate OTA awards for its members. In April 2018, the Marine Corps Systems Command signed a 5-year no-ceiling agreement with CEED for the use of OTA.

CEED’s Technology Focus Areas cover a wide array of technologies across its three domains.


  • Broadens the technology base by reaching innovators not readily available to the DoD
  • Converts “Government contracting” to commercial practices
  • Rapid acquisition – Projects under $100M can be competitively awarded quickly
  • Seamless transition from prototype directly into production
  • Open to large and small businesses
  • Flexibility in treatment of Intellectual Property
  • Platform for public/private collaboration
