History of MDCP Projects

A. Contact

Questions about your MDCP project should always be directed first to your ITA-MDCP team leader. MDCP Director Brad Hess can help as well. Feel free to copy him on your correspondance. For anything related to finance--e.g. ASAP payments, reimbursements, quarterly SF425 reporting--contact a grants management specialist. Contact information is provided below. Note that Donald Gooding should always be your first resort as he is primarily tasked with servicing MDCP awards.
