Please see below for common membership questions.

HOW LONG DOES THE PROCESS TAKE?
An application with all necessary documentation 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), or is operating under Foreign Ownership (FOCI).  If you have questions regarding these documents, please contact us at MCDC@ati.org.

 

HOW MUCH ARE ANNUAL DUES?
There is a $250 annual membership fee, which is renewed each fiscal year.

 

CAN AN INTERNATIONAL COMPANY PARTICIPATE?
MCDC membership is limited to US companies or US-based affiliates of foreign companies. Foreign companies cannot gain membership due to MCDC’s member requirement to obtain a DD2345 (military critical technical data agreement).
