Questions We Often get Prior to Joining

Who Should Join?

Any company, university, or research organization with expertise in the technology areas specifically related to the JPEO-CBD mission


How Long Does the Process Take?

An application with all necessary documentation and certificates can be processed in as little as 1-2 business days. However, it can take up to several weeks if an applicant needs to obtain a DD2345 or update any expired certificates (SAM.gov, DD2345, DUNS, CAGE). If you have questions regarding these documents, please contact us at MCDC@ati.org


When Should My Company Join?

It is best to apply early to allow enough time for the application processes. Postponing membership until a Solicitation is active, may result in unforseen delays and the inability to submit a proposal. The MCDC has worked to keep membership dues to an amount that should not prohibit an organization from joining whenever they are ready.



Can an International Company Participate?

Membership in MCDC is limited to US companies or US-based affiliates of foreign companies. Foreign companies cannot gain membership due to MCDC’s requirement that members obtain a DD2345 (military critical technical data agreement). However, foreign companies can be subcontractors (team members) on projects awarded through the Other Transaction Agreement (OTA) as long as they can meet the terms and conditions of the OTA. The MCDC member awarded the project is responsible for flowing the applicable requirements down to the foreign company.
