How to apply...
Eligible organizations may submit proposals or white papers in response to relevant Broad Agency Announcements published in the Federal Business Opportunities (www.fedbizopps.gov-- look for DARPA under other Defense Agency).
Note: Each program will indicate whether applications are to be submitted to the Federal headquarters, regional or local office, or to a State or local government office.
Award decisions are based upon competitive selection of specific project proposals resulting from a scientific review. Evaluators use the evaluation criteria contained in the relevant Broad Agency Announcement. Generally, the offeror's proposal is incorporated into the grant document and the offeror agrees to perform the project as described in the proposal, with specific deliverable due from the project.
Note: Grant payments may be made by a letter of credit, advance by Treasury check, or reimbursement by Treasury check.
Awards may be made by the headquarters office directly to the applicant, an agency field office, a regional office,
or by an authorized county office. The assistance may pass through the initial applicant for further distribution by
intermediate level applicants to groups or individuals in the private sector.
