Regional Ocean Acidification Observing Optimization Study (OOS-OA19)

The NOAA/OAR/Ocean Acidification Program (OAP) is soliciting proposals for studies investigating ocean acidification monitoring strategies that would offer an observing system design that best characterizes and tracks ocean acidification within U. S. Large Marine Ecosystems (LMEs) optimized towards characterizing


the conditions most relevant to ecologically and economically important marine species.

Funding is contingent upon the availability of Federal appropriations.

It is anticipated that projects funded under this announcement will have a September 1, 2019 start date.

Total funding for this research:
Applicants should submit proposals not to exceed $500,000 per year for projects generally 2-3 years in duration, with a total multi-year budget not to exceed $1,500,000 (Option 1:
$350,000 per year for two years; Option 2:
Up to $500,000 per year for three years).

Should funds become available for this program, up to approximately $2,000,000 may be available in Fiscal Year 2019 for the first year of about 2-5 projects with expected start dates of September 1, 201 9. Funding for this program is contingent upon availability of funds, which may not have been appropriated at the time of this announcement.

While projects are expected to be 2-3 years in scope, funding may be spread over 4 federal fiscal years depending on how project timelines align with federal budgets.

For proposals which involve a Regional Association of the Integrated Ocean Observing System, NOAA IOOS will contribute additional funding to cover RA costs to participate (up to 10% of the total project budget per year, over and above the OAP funding thresholds described above).
