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 January 2013, CEED was awarded a three-year OTA with the Department of the Army, and was awarded a 10-year, no-ceiling follow-on OTA by the Army in April 2017. CEED also was awarded a 10-year, no-ceiling OTA with the Department of Interior in September 2010.

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
  • Project awards cannot be protested
