3 AGENDA I. DOE Overview II. DOE Awards to Northwestern FY 2008 III. Pre-award: Proposal Development IV.Post-award: Administration and Reporting V.For More Information

4 OVERVIEW: HISTORY Manhattan Project - 1942 – Build the Bomb Atomic Energy Commission (AEC) – 1946 –Civilian Government Control - Cold War Years Atomic Energy Act – 1954 –Commercial Nuclear Power Industry AEC Abolished – 1974 –Nuclear Regulatory Commission Regulate nuclear power industry –Energy Research and Development Administration Manage development programs Department of Energy – 1977 –One agency


6 DOE - principally national security agency - missions flow from core mission to support national security. DOEs various missions are managed by Program Offices. Operation Offices - DOE offices located outside Wash DC area that oversee activities in support of two or more of the four missions assigned to the Department. Laboratories and technology centers - world-class facilities where more than 30,000 scientists and engineers perform cutting-edge research.

11 DOE AWARDS AND PROPOSALS FY 2008 DOE Awards FY 2008 $10.8 million awarded 2.5% of all sponsored research 3.3% of Federal support DOE Proposals FY 2008 $31.1 million proposed 1.9% of all proposed sponsored research 2.2% of proposed Federal support

12 PRE-AWARD: PROPOSAL DEVELOPMENT Solicitations FOA – Funding Opportunity Announcement RFP – Request for Proposal RFQ – Request for Quote Submission Process IIPS FedConnect

15 PRE-AWARD: CALCULATING COST SHARE Total Project Cost Known 1. Total Project Cost $500,000 2. 20% Cost Share Required 3. $500,000 X 20% = $100,000 4. $400,000 DOE + $100,000 CS = $500,000

16 PRE-AWARD: CALCULATING COST SHARE DOE Share Known 1. DOE Funding = $400,000 2. 20% Cost Share of Project Total Required 3. $400,000 ÷.80 = $500,000 (calculate total) 4. $500,000 - $400,000 = $100,000 (cost share)

20 IV. Post-award: Administration and Reporting A. Read terms & conditions carefully on grants and contracts B. Grants and Cooperative AgreementsResearch Terms & Conditions and Agency Specific RTCs apply 1.Awards may be incrementally funded o Example: $100,000 funding approved for budget period, $30,000 authorized (obligated) for spending, DOE increases spending authorization periodically 2.Keep the same DOE award number for the life of the award, including renewals 3.Cooperative Agreements include substantial involvement of the government agency in the project

21 IV. Post-award: Administration and Reporting 5. Standard RTCs include: 90-day pre-spend Grantee-approved NCE of one year o at end of budget segment may be interpreted as project end – dont use if renewal is expected Rebudgeting allowable except o scope change (e.g., 25% of total award to a single line) o subawardee is foreign o 25% programmatic effort is transferred to/from sub o PI effort is reduced 25% or more Continuation application only if BP end not = PP end; o 90 days beforesee DOE RTCs

Related Agencies ANLBasic Ordering Agreement (BOA) for most of our actions but not Joint Appointments a. Budget generally to support foreign graduate students includes stipend, $5,000 for tuition, travel & supplies, and no F&A b. Research with post docs or facultysame as usualinclude salary, benefits, and on or off campus F&A NRELcaps F&A and Fringe rates for the life of the project NETL & Goldenonly difference is communication with different units
