The U. S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences (ARI) announces the ARI FY21-22 Foundational Science Research Unit Broad Agency Announcement for Basic Scientific Research.
This Broad Agency Announcement, which sets forth basic research areas of interest to the United States Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences, is issued under the provisions of paragraph 6. 102(d)(2) of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), which provides for the competitive selection of proposals.
Proposals submitted in response to this BAA and selected for award are considered to be the result of full and open competition and in full compliance with the provisions of Public Law 98-369 (The Competition in Contracting Act of 1984) and subsequent amendments.
The U. S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences is the Army's lead agency for the conduct of research, development, and analyses for the improvement of Army readiness and performance via research advances and applications of the behavioral and social sciences that address personnel, organization, training, and leader development issues.
Programs funded under this BAA include basic research that can improve human performance and Army readiness.
Those contemplating submission of a proposal are encouraged to contact the ARI Technical Point of Contact (TPOC).
If the R&D warrants further inquiry and funding is available, submission of a proposal will be entertained.
The recommended three-step sequence is (1) e-mail inquiry to the ARI Technical Point of Contact, (2) white paper submission, (3) full proposal submission.
Awards may be made in the form of contracts, grants, or cooperative agreements.
Proposals are sought from educational institutions, non-profit/not-for-profit organizations, and commercial organizations, domestic or foreign, for research and development (R&D) in those areas specified in the BAA.
The U. S. Army Research Institute for the Behavioral and Social Sciences encourages Historically Black Colleges and Universities/Minority Serving Institutions (HBCU/MSI) and small businesses to submit proposals for consideration.
Foreign owned, controlled, or influenced organizations are advised that security restrictions may apply that could preclude their participation in these efforts.
Government laboratories, Federal Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs), and US Service Academies are not eligible to participate as prime contractors or recipients.
However, they may be able to participate as subcontractors or subrecipients (eligibility will be determined on a case by case basis).
