The Military Critical Technical Data Agreement (DD2345) is the institutional form used to register in the Joint Certification Program (JCP). Through the JCP, U.S. and Canadian defense contractors are able to apply for access to U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) or Canadian Department of National Defense (DND) unclassified export controlled technical data/critical technology on an equally favorable basis. The Joint Certification Office is staffed by DoD and DND staff that review and certify contractor applications submitted on the DD2345.
The University of Connecticut’s (UConn) certification is principally used to facilitate either the exchange of export controlled technical data between defense contractors (i.e., between UConn and a prime contractor or subcontractor where required by a specific contract or funding agreement), or the participation of University researchers, students or staff in DoD/DND sponsored events (e.g., to discuss program requirements or present research findings). Under the JCP, data is sent to the recipient’s Data Custodian named on the DD2345 who is then responsible for ensuring that appropriate safeguards (controls) are put in place to prevent unauthorized disclosures and exports before releasing it to the end user (i.e., researcher).
University faculty, staff, trainees, and students engaging in University supported activities are required by the JCP to use our institutional certification rather than register as an individual.
The Office of Export Controls is responsible for administering the University’s certification under the oversight of Data Custodian.

- An approved Technology Control Plan (TCP) is required for all JCP data, regardless of format, that will be accessed, developed, provided, used, or stored by or on behalf of the University or University personnel. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org regarding establishing a TCP.
- A TCP is not required for meeting participation unless the participant will be retaining notes, conference proceedings, presentations, etc. from the meeting that require safeguarding.
- While not specifically required by the JCP, associated contractual requirements may require that subject data be safeguarded as controlled unclassified information (CUI). For more information on CUI safeguarding contact email@example.com
