National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP) 2022 Broad Area Announcement (OPEN)

On behalf of the National Oceanographic Partnership Program (NOPP), the Office of
Naval Research (ONR) solicits research proposals under this Broad Agency Announcement
(BAA #N00014-22-S-B003). Congress established the NOPP via Title II, subtitle E, of
Public Law 104-201 to promote the national goals of assuring national security, advancing
economic development, protecting quality of life, and strengthening science education and
communication by improving knowledge of the ocean. Over twenty agencies participate in
the NOPP. They are identified on the NOPP website:

In this BAA, NOPP participants have identified two ocean research topics of mutual
and emerging interest. Selected projects will be awarded and funded by individual agencies.
All successful offerors will be notified, and the NOPP office will provide the 2022 NOPP
project announcement on its website. Up to $23 million over three (3) years may be
available for awards under this solicitation, subject to appropriation, availability of funds,
and final approval by the participating NOPP agencies. NOPP funding will be dependent on
individual participating agency policies, procedures, and regulations. There will be no
classified work funded under this announcement.

This document constitutes a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for awards as
contemplated in Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 6.102(d)(2) and 35.016, the
Department of Defense Grants and Agreements regulations (DoDGARS) 32 CFR 22.315(a),
and the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense for Acquisition and Sustainment Other
Transaction Guide version 1.0 dated November 2018.

ONR and the participating agencies reserve the right to fund all, some, or none of the
proposals received under this BAA. The Government provides no funding for direct
reimbursement of proposal development costs. Technical and cost proposals (or any other
material) submitted in response to this BAA will not be returned. It is the policy of ONR to
treat all proposals submitted under this BAA as sensitive competitive information and to
disclose their contents only for the purposes of evaluation.
