FUNDING AVAILABLE FOR ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGY DEMONSTRATIONS
ARLINGTON, VA, January 12, 2012—The Department of Defense (DoD), through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP), supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DoD environmental requirements. The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative environmental technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DoD end-user acceptance. Projects conduct formal demonstrations at DoD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.
ESTCP is seeking proposals for innovative environmental technology demonstrations as candidates for funding beginning in FY2013. This solicitation requests pre-proposals via Calls for Proposals to Federal organizations and via a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for Private Sector organizations. PRE-PROPOSALS ARE DUE BY THURSDAY, MARCH 15, 2012.
DoD organizations (Service and Defense Agencies) may submit pre-proposals for demonstrations of innovative environmental technologies in the following topic areas:
- Environmental Restoration — Technologies for the characterization, risk assessment, remediation, and management of contaminants in soil, sediments, and water.
- Munitions Response — Technologies for the detection, classification, and remediation of military munitions on U.S. lands and waters.
- Resource Conservation — Tools, technologies, and methodologies that advance DoD’s management of its natural and cultural resources.
- Weapons Systems and Platforms — Technologies to reduce, control, or eliminate the sources of wastes and emissions in the manufacturing, maintenance, and use of weapons systems and platforms.
The Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) and Non-DoD Federal Call for Proposals (CFP) are seeking pre-proposals for environmental technologies in the following topic areas only:
- Management of Contaminated Groundwater
- Characterization, Control, and Treatment of Testing and Training Range Contamination
- Military Munitions Detection, Classification, and Remediation
- Watershed Management Models/Tools for DoD Installation Applications
- Demonstration/Validation of Alternatives to Cadmium Plating in Manufacturing and Maintenance of Weapons Systems
WEBINAR – JANUARY 24: ESTCP Director Dr. Jeffrey Marqusee will conduct an online seminar ESTCP Funding Opportunities on January 24, 2012, from 1:00-2:00 p.m. Eastern Time. This “How to play” briefing will offer valuable information for those interested in new ESTCP funding opportunities. During the online seminar, participants may ask questions about the funding process, the current ESTCP solicitation, and the proposal submission process. Pre-registration for this webinar is required. To register, visit https://cc.readytalk.com/r/c1owl9wdrnx7.
