2/14/2014 - ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- The Department of Defense, through the Environmental Security Technology Certification Program, supports the demonstration of technologies that address priority DOD environmental requirements.
The goal of ESTCP is to promote the transfer of innovative environmental technologies through demonstrations that collect the data needed for regulatory and DOD end-user acceptance. Program participants conduct formal demonstrations at DOD facilities and sites in operational settings to document and validate improved performance and cost savings.
Officials are seeking proposals for innovative environmental technology demonstrations as candidates for funding beginning in fiscal 2015. This solicitation requests pre-proposals via calls for proposals to federal organizations and via a broad agency announcement for private sector organizations. Pre-proposals are due by April 1.
DOD service and defense agencies can submit pre-proposals for demonstrations of innovative environmental technologies in the following topic areas only:
The broad area announcements and non-DOD federal call for proposals are seeking pre-proposals for environmental technologies in the following topic area only:
- Environmental Restoration -- Assessment of vapor intrusion from subsurface volatile organic compound contamination.
- Weapons Systems and Platforms -- Technologies to reduce, control, or eliminate the sources of wastes and emissions in the manufacturing, maintenance, and use of weapons systems and platforms.
ESTCP is not seeking proposals in the munitions response or resource conservation program areas at this time.
- Assessment of vapor intrusion from subsurface volatile organic compound contamination.
ESTCP Director Dr. Anne Andrews will conduct an online seminar titled "ESTCP Funding Opportunities" Feb. 21, from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. EST. This "how to play" briefing will offer information for those interested in new ESTCP funding opportunities.
During the online seminar, participants may ask questions about the funding process, the current ESTCP solicitation and the proposal submission process. Pre-registration for the seminar is required at https://cc.readytalk.com/r/9to6umr1diec&eom. A recording of the online seminar and the presentation will be posted to the SERDP and ESTCP Web site in late February.
