The Defense Mobility Enterprise

The Defense Mobility Enterprise (DME) is a partnership between Government and Industry/Academia. The single point of contact for the Government side of the DME is the Ground Vehicle Systems Center Acquisition Management Office Group (AMO OTA Group) located in Warren, MI. The single point of contact for Industry is the National Advanced Mobility Consortium (NAMC). The DME operates under an Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) in accordance with provisions of 10 USC 2371b, Section 815 of the 2016 National Defense Authorization Act, P.L. 114-92, which provides the Department of Defense (DoD) authority to enter into transactions other than contracts, grants, or cooperative agreements. Under this authority, the DoD has the authority to make awards for prototype projects that are directly relevant to enhancing the mission effectiveness of military personnel and the supporting platforms, systems, components, or materials proposed to be acquired or developed by the DoD, or the improvement of platforms, systems, components, or materials in use by the armed forces. It is the flexibility inherent in the Section 815 authority that enables the Government, Industry, and Academia partnership to quickly and effectively provide innovative ground vehicle systems (manned and unmanned) technology solutions to the warfighter.

At the discretion of the Government, a follow-on transaction or contract for low or full rate production may be pursued for a prototype project selected for funding under the OTA without the use of competitive procedures, as provided within the applicable Statute, 10 USC 2371b(f). In order to be eligible for a follow-on production transaction or contract, the Government must determine that the prototype was successfully completed. The Agreements Officer, in coordination with the program office, will be responsible for documenting whether or not the prototype project was successfully completed. Follow-on production efforts will be limited to the scope of the successfully completed prototype.
