QUESTIONS WE OFTEN GET FROM PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS
WHO SHOULD JOIN?
Any company, university, or research organization with expertise in the technology areas specifically related to the Space Enterprise Consortium® 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). See Membership Requirements for a listing of all required certificates and instructions for obtaining them. If you have questions regarding these documents, please contact us at SpEC-CM@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 unforeseen delays and the inability to submit a proposal. The Space Enterprise Consortium® keeps membership dues to an amount that should not prohibit an organization from joining whenever they are ready.
CAN AN INTERNATIONAL COMPANY PARTICIPATE?
Membership in the Space Enterprise Consortium® is limited to US companies or US-based affiliates of foreign companies. Foreign companies cannot gain membership due to the Consortium’s requirement that members obtain a DD2345 (military critical technical data agreement).
