This BAA is a mechanism to encourage research, education and outreach, innovative projects, or sponsorships that are not addressed through our competitive discretionary programs.
It is not a mechanism for awarding congressionally directed funds or existing funded awards.
Funding for potential projects in this notice is contingent upon the availability of Fiscal Year 2012, Fiscal Year 2013 and Fiscal Year 2014 appropriations.
Applicants are hereby given notice that funds have not yet been appropriated for any potential activities in this notice.
Publication of this announcement does not oblige NOAA to review an application, or to award any specific project, or to obligate any available funds.

Eligible applicants may be institutions of higher education, nonprofits, commercial organizations, international or foreign organizations or governments, individuals, state, local and Indian tribal governments.
Eligibility also depends on the statutory authority that permits NOAA to fund the proposed activity.

If the applicant is a university that has a NOAA Joint or Cooperative Institute (CI), the institution is encouraged to submit an application that will be associated with the CI.
The application must specify the name of the CI, its most recent award number, and the NOAA-approved research theme applicable to the work to be performed in the project narrative.
The application will use the facilities and administrative rate (F&A or Indirect cost rate) associated with most recent CI award.
If the application is selected for funding, NOAA will notify the university that a separate competitive award will be issued with its own award number.
However, the competitive award will include a Special Award Condition (SAC) that evidences the link between it and the CI award.
The SAC will provide (1) that the university has submitted the proposal to be associated with the CI; (2) that any existing University/NOAA MOA will be incorporated by reference into the terms of the competitive award, and (3) that any progress report(s) for the competitive award must follow the timetable of and be submitted by the CI directly to the funding program.
