Seeking Subject Matter Expert SME(s) to Counter Iran’s Ballistic Missile Activities by Improving Global UNSCR Implementation


Deadline Extended: May 31st, 2022 5:00 PM EST 


CRDF Global is seeking Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) with experience developing and delivering instruction and training on best practices to enhance the capacity of maritime stakeholders to proactively identify and report potential violations of UN sanctions related maritime activities of countries such as North Korea and Iran. The contractor would build, tailor, and deploy curricula for compliance practitioners at ports and shipping registries in various countries.  


CRDF Global will organize a two-part series of subject matter expert (SME)-led trainings and tabletop exercises (TTX duration of approximately 1 hour) to prevent potential violations of United Nations Security Council Resolutions (UNSCRs) prohibiting the transfer of ballistic missile related technologies and equipment to the Government of Iran and its affiliates. With a particular focus on UNSCR 2231, trainings will use UNSCR implementation guidance and associated curricula to engage South Asia and South East Asia. These materials will be developed by the team of SMEs and modified accordingly for each engagement. Materials will include PowerPoint slides, poll questions, agenda, leave-behind documents and Tabletop Exercises. These trainings and TTXs will involve representatives of relevant regulatory, licensing, and law enforcement backgrounds and include relevant case studies and lessons learned. Additionally, through these trainings and TTXs, CRDF will promote best practices for UNSCR enforcement and other necessary nonproliferation guidance.
