Definition - A Designated Capabilities Agreement is like the Work for Non-federal Entities Agreement except that the participating Sandia organization has already prepared background paperwork and received DOE approval for its activities. To access the designated capability, the participant signs a subagreement for specific work.
Benefits - This agreement provide quick response to customer requests.
Preparation for Agreement - The subagreement includes a written statement of work with specific tasks. The agreement may be executed in five to ten days.
Funding - The sponsor provides all of the funding. The costs are based on Sandia's full cost recovery for the statement of work and must be paid before work commences if the total is less than $25K or the project duration is less than three months. If the totals exceed $25K and three month's duration, billing terms can be arranged.
