Office of Fusion Energy Science (FES) websiteAdditional Information of Eligibility:
All types of applicants are eligible to apply, except Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Contractors, and nonprofit organizations described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that engaged in lobbying activities after December 31, 1995.
INCORPORATED CONSORTIA Incorporated consortia, which may include domestic and/or foreign entities, are eligible to apply for funding as a prime recipient (lead organization) or subawardee (team member).
For consortia incorporated (or otherwise formed) under the laws of a State or territory of the United States, please refer to “Domestic Entities” above.
For consortia incorporated in foreign countries, please refer to the requirements in “Foreign Entities” above.
Each incorporated consortium must have an internal governance structure and a written set of internal rules.
Upon request, the consortium must provide a written description of its internal governance structure and its internal rules to the DOE contracting officer.
UNINCORPORATED CONSORTIA Unincorporated consortia (team arrangements), which may include domestic and foreign entities, must designate one member of the consortium to serve as the prime recipient/consortium representative (lead organization).
The prime recipient/consortium representative must be incorporated (or otherwise formed) under the laws of a State or territory of the United States.
Upon request, unincorporated consortia must provide the DOE contracting officer with a collaboration agreement, commonly referred to as the articles of collaboration, which sets out the rights and responsibilities of each consortium member.
This agreement binds the individual consortium members together and should discuss, among other things, the consortium's: • Management structure; • Method of making payments to consortium members; • Means of ensuring and overseeing members' efforts on the project; • Provisions for members' cost sharing contributions; and • Provisions for ownership and rights in intellectual property developed previously or under the agreement.
Note that a consortium is applied for in one application and results in one award with subawards to consortia members.
Collaborations are applied for separately with identical applications and result in multiple awards to the collaborating institutions.Full Opportunity Web Address:Contact: Agency Email Description: Agency Email:
