Market Development Cooperator Program
For ITA-MDCP team leaders
For each MDCP project, an official from ITA's Industry and Analysis (I&A) acts as leader of a team that works with a cooperator to coordinate and help accomplish project goals. In addition to I&A, the team includes professionals from ITA's Global Markets unit including Commercial Officers and locally engaged staff from the Commercial Service, U.S. Export Assistance Center representatives, and country desk officers. The team may include federal officials from agencies other than ITA.
The leader of the ITA-MDCP team convenes regular conference calls, follows up on action items, coordinates team efforts, and participates in project activity as appropriate. Each month the team leader completes an MDCP team report on ITA Central.
Outreach to Potential MDCP Applicants and Other Parties
A Here is a short presenation outlining the way that MDCP works. It is suitable for presenting to anyone who wants to know more than the basics on the MDCP flyer or the What is MDCP page.
ITA-MDCP team training
A training module in ITA Central is available for every member of an ITA-MDCP team. New members of the team should be referred to this link.
Most ITA-MDCP team work will be managed through SalesForce. The most important component of ITA-MDCP team training is the SalesForce module.
What teams do on a regular basis
Each month leaders of ITA-MDCP teams respond to the MDCP monthly report survey. This serves as a reminder of what you should be doing on a regular basis. One of these regular duties is to ensure that your list of members of the team is up to date. Manage this team list is the "Case Contributors" window in SalesForce. See screen shot 3 in the SalesForce module for more information.
The ITA-MDCP team leader formulates a budget of proposed use of ITA administrative funds. Admin funds pay for the participation of ITA members of the team. The admin fund budget codes are posted on ITA Central. Below are the project codes from this document.
