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 (, DD2345, DUNS, CAGE). If you have questions regarding these documents, please contact us at

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.
