Can I procure Capability before I reach out to TSA or before a MOU is signed?

It is important that a Donor contact the APM CAP team and execute the CAP prior to procuring any Capability that will be donated to TSA or operated in a screening environment.  This reduces risk of procuring a Capability that may not be accepted or be able to be operated by TSA.  In addition, TSA requires that all three CAP phases are completed before operating any donated TSE in a screening environment, to include execution of a MOU, a Terms and Conditions document, and offer and acceptance letters.
