There are three (3) types of MPP agreements:
· Reimbursable: Reimbursement for reasonable, allocable, and allowable expenses to be reimbursed to the Mentor through a contract.
· Credit: Costs incurred under a credit agreement are not directly reimbursed, but are applied under Federal Agency subcontracting plan 19.703 towards SDB subcontracting goals in different multiples based on assistance provided. This is an opportunity for Mentors struggling in meeting subcontracting goals on DIA contracts.
· Hybrid MP Agreements: Utilizes some credit and some reimbursement instead of exclusively one or the other.
*** DIA is actively seeking credit teaming agreements***
*** DIA reimbursable and hybrid agreements are finalized; however new teaming agreements will be sought Q4 FY14 ***

Needipedia: On 27 Nov 2013, DIA released a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) to solicit innovative whitepapers on a broad variety of mission areas. It will promote maximum engagement opportunities with any interested and qualified sources.
Open Innovation Gateway (Coming Soon – Early 2014): The OIG is a low barrier to entry virtual environment with a core that resembles the mission architecture (IC ITE) and capabilities with high fidelity - streamlining the transition of promising technologies, methods, and tradecraft. It will enable the innovator to develop capabilities from their own lab and showcase them in a mission relevant environment without compromising intellectual property.
Industry Interaction Program (IIP): DIA is partnering with the NGA to expand outreach and potential partnership opportunities with a variety of sources that may be in the possession of "innovation" concepts of interest to the DIA
