Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Fundamental Research to Counter Weapons of Mass Destruction Broad Agency Announcement (BAA): The purpose of this BAA is to solicit proposals for the Research and Development, Fundamental Research program: This BAA is an extramural endeavor that combines fundamental research needs of DTRA and other DoD interests. DTRA safeguards America and its allies from weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and provide capabilities to reduce, eliminate and counter the threat and effects from chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and high yield explosives. DTRA seeks to identify, adopt, and adapt emerging, existing and revolutionary sciences that may demonstrate high payoff potential to Counter-WMD (C-WMD) threats. This announcement solicits white papers for long-term challenges in specific fundamental areas of research that offer a significant contribution to the current body of knowledge, understanding of phenomena and observable facts, significantly advance revolutionary technology, new concepts for technology application, and may have impact on future C-WMD capabilities. There are a total of 15 open windows (approximately 3 per year), and submissions may occur at any time during those open window periods. Grants are the preferred procurement instrument, but contracts and other transaction agreements (OTAs) may be proposed, as well. The Government reserves the right to award any combination of approaches which offer the best overall value to the Government.
