Opportunities & Solicitations

How Does This Work?

JPM-MCS offers funding opportunities to MCDC members through solicitations called Requests for Prototype Proposals (RPPs). The RPPs offer MCDC members the opportunity to propose prototype technologies to the technology requirements in each solicitation’s objective or sub-objective area. Active and Closed solicitations are listed below.

Only MCDC Members in good standing can submit whitepapers and proposals in response to solicitations. Please log-in to the MCDC Members Only Site to view complete solicitation information. If you do not have a username and password, please click here to request access.

If you are not a MCDC member and wish to become one, please click here for instructions.


Request for Prototype Proposal (RPP) MCDC-RPP-17-01 was released January 17, 2017 and solicited 1) a full proposal only for Sub-Objective area 17-01 and 2) a whitepaper followed by full proposal for Sub-Objective area 17-02.

17-01: Development of Monoclonal Antibody and Related Technologies as Medical Countermeasures against aerosolized Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis (VEE) Virus

Active Requests For Information


Request for Prototype Proposal (RPP) MCDC-RPP-17-02 was released February 13, 2017 and solicited full proposals

MCDC-RPP-17-02 is for the Objective Area “Prevention” (PRE) and “Detection “ (DET) and includes the following three Sub-Objective Areas:

17-03: Development of Marburgvirus (MARV) Vaccine Prototype against aerosolized MARV

17-04: Development of Multi-Target Single-Vector Vaccine Prototype against aerosolized Venezuelan Equine Encephalitis Virus (VEEV)

17-05: Man-Portable Diagnostics System (MPDS)


17-02: Development of Efficacious Antiviral Countermeasures


Two (2) Request for Information (RFI) MCDC-RFI for DBPAO were released January 17, 2017 on behalf of the Defense Biological Product Assurance Office (DBPAO), formally the Critical Reagents Program (CRP).

The first RFI seeks information regarding qualifications on capability to produce, manufacture or provide inactive viral and bacterial antigens. The RFI can be found here

The second RFI seeks information on third-party conformance testing. The RFI can be found here
