International Participation: 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.
