In accordance with Section F: Part I, the FOA states, “It is required that each applicant’s team include an
ETT manufacturer or supplier currently producing the technology in the United States. It is highly desired
that applications include commitments to manufacture and build the technology in the United States
subsequent to the technology development and demonstration effort.” Therefore, a non-U.S. company
could be the partner to an eligible prime entity as long as the technology is produced in the U.S.
