ARLINGTON, VA, October 28, 2010—The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development in the Resource Conservation and Climate Change program area. SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced development. The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks, and time required to resolve environmental problems while, at the same time, enhancing and sustaining military readiness. The Resource Conservation and Climate Change program area supports the development of the science, technologies, and methods needed to manage DoD’s installation infrastructure in a sustainable way. SERDP is requesting proposals that respond to the following two focused Statements of Need (SON) in Resource Conservation and Climate Change:
- Assessment and Monitoring of Biological Diversity: Method Development
- Climate Change Impacts to Department of Defense Installations
Proposals responding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2012 SONs will be selected through a competitive process. PRE-PROPOSALS FROM THE NON-FEDERAL SECTOR ARE DUE BY THURSDAY, JANUARY 6 , 2011. PROPOSALS FROM THE FEDERAL SECTOR ARE DUE BY THURSDAY, MARCH 10, 2011. The SONs and detailed instructions for federal and private sector proposers are available on the SERDP web site at www.serdp-estcp.org/Funding-Opportunities/SERDP-Solicitations.
