Guidance on when, why and how to set up a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and a teaming agreement with another organization with which CRS is planning to partner on a competitive funding opportunity. An NDA between two parties describes confidential material or information that the parties wish to share with one another for certain purposes and any restrictions on the use or distribution of those materials. Teaming agreements help articulate the expectation of each partner related to proposal development and program implementation. The TA covers both pre- and post-solicitation phases, with an NDA executed to cover any period without the TA in place, but having a need to share information (e.g., in the early capture planning phase).
