The U.S. Department of Defense’s Joint Project Manager for Medical Countermeasure Systems (JPM-MCS) will host a second Industry Day on a proposed Other Transaction Agreement from 8am to 5pm on Monday, November 2 at the Crowne Plaza Fairfield, 690 Route 46 East, Fairfield, NJ. You can register for this free event at: https://www.surveyshield.com/TakeSurvey.asp?SurveyID=40H8o3009om1K2. The last day to register is Monday, November 2.

JPM-MCS provided information during a first industry day informing potential offerors of expected research and development tasks under an “Other Transaction Agreement”. An entity or group of entities eligible for award include industry, academic, non-profit, and not-for-profit partners, for advanced development efforts supporting the Department of Defense's (DoD) medical pharmaceutical and diagnostic requirements enhancing the mission effectiveness of military personnel.

Please note JPM-MCS will use this second industry day to provide information on the objectives and requirements of the consortium OTA, and provide any updates based on the information received from attendees at the industry day held in conjunction with BIO 2015 in Philadelphia on 15 June. At this second industry day, JPM-MCS will request Letters of Intent from those who might form a consortium to determine if and how to move forward. Our expectation is that a successful consortium will include members with a history of successful experience in regulatory review.
