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).
