Office: Office Of The Secretary Of Defense

Program Information 

Program Number/Title (010):
12.630 Basic, Applied, and Advanced Research in Science and
Engineering

Federal Agency (030):
OFFICE OF THE SECRETARY OF DEFENSE, DEPARTMENT OF
DEFENSE

Authorization (040):
10 U.S.C. 2358, as amended; 10 U.S.C. 2323; 10 U.S.C. 2391 et seq.

Objectives (050):
To: (1) Discover new knowledge and gain better understanding in
mathematical, physical, engineering, environmental, and life sciences,
and other fields with good, long-term potential for contributing to
technology for Department of Defense missions; (2) facilitate transition
of research results to practical application for defense needs; (3)
improve linkages between defense research and the civilian technology
and industrial bases, to promote commercial application of the results
of defense research and commercial availability of technology for
defense needs; (4) foster education of future scientists and engineers
in disciplines critical to defense; and (5) strengthen the
infrastructure for research and related science and engineering
education in those disciplines.

Types of Assistance (060):
Project Grants (Cooperative Agreements).

Uses and Use Restrictions (070):
Uses and restrictions are specified in individual program announcements
(Broad Agency Announcements, or BAAs) and award documents issued by and
codified regulations applicable to awards. These are submitted at the
time of proposal or prior to award, as specified by executive agents.

Eligibility Requirements (080)

Applicant Eligibility (081):
As stated in individual BAAs (generally, competitions are open to
private and public educational institutions that carry out science and
engineering research and/or related science and engineering education on
a nonprofit basis). Some awards are made to other public or privae
organizations. Awards are not made to individuals.

Beneficiary Eligibility (082):
Beneficiaries may include individual graduate and undergraduate students
(e.g., recipients of fellowships or research traineeships) in science
and engineering disciplines important to defense, as well as
institutions described under “Applicant Eligibility.”

Credentials/Documentation (083):
Recipient eligibility is contingent upon submission of certifications
and representations that are required by Federal statutes, executive
orders.

Application and Award Process (090)

Preapplication Coordination (091):

Application Procedures (092):
Institutions eligible to compete may submit proposals in response to
Broad Agency Announcements (BAAs) that executive agents publish in
Federal Business Opportunities (www.fedbizopps.gov) and circulate
broadly to eligible proposers’ sponsored-programs offices. Each BAA
tells potential proposers what activities will be supported, in which
science and engineering areas they will be supported, and how to apply.

Award Procedure (093):
Award decisions are based on a competitive selection of proposals, using
a technical merit review. Evaluation criteria are specified in the
relevant Broad Agency Announcement. If selected for award, the proposal
is the basis for the award document and the applicant agrees to perform
the research or research-related activities (e.g., science or
engineering education or research infrastructure-building activities)
described therein.

Deadlines (094):
Deadlines for submitting proposals are specified in the individual relevant Broad Agency Announcements.

Range of Approval/Disapproval Time (095):
Times vary, but award decisions are typically made within 90 to 120 days of receipt of the proposal.

Appeals (096):
Appeal procedures are specified by the executive agents.

Renewals (097):
Application for a competitive new award is permitted.

Assistance Consideration (100)

Formula and Matching Requirements (101):
There are no statutory formulas. Cost-sharing or matching, if required,
would be specified in the individual Broad Agency Announcement.

Length and Time Phasing of Assistance (102):
Funding reflects period of performance and may be awarded incrementally.

Post Assistance Requirements (110)

Reports (111):
Technical and financial reporting requirements are in accordance with
terms and conditions of award documents and with Department of Defense
implementation of applicable OMB Circular Nos. A- 110 and A-102.

Audits (112):

June 27, 2003), “Audits of States, Local Governments, and Non-Profit
Organizations,” non federal entities that expend financial assistance of
$500,000 or more in Federal awards will have a single or a
program-specific audit conducted for that year. Nonfederal entities
that expend less than $500,000 a year in Federal awards are exempt from
Federal audit requirements for that year, except as noted in Circular
No. A-133.

Records (113):
Recordkeeping requirements are in accordance with Department of Defense
implementation of 12.300; the air force office of Scientific Research
(listing 12.800).
