Description:

The U.S. Department of the Interior, Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), is currently requesting full proposals for Research and Laboratory Studies, Pilot Scale Systems and Demonstration Projects sponsored by the Desalination and Water Purification Research and Development (DWPR) Program. Through this program, Reclamation is forming partnerships with private industry, universities, local communities, and others to address a broad range of desalting and water purification needs. The overall objective of the program is to reduce the cost of desalting and water purification technologies in order to augment water supply in the United States. The Water Desalination Act of 1996,as amended, the authorizing legislation for this program, defines the following important terms: (1) Desalination or desalting means (the use of any process or technique for the removal and, when feasible, adaptation to beneficial use, of organic and inorganic compounds from saline or biologically impaired waters, by itself or in conjunction with other processes. (2) Saline water means sea water, brackish water, and other mineralized or chemically impaired water.
The proposal package may be obtained from the link to the "full announcement" page located at the URL listed below. Reference FY 2005 DWPR Program Proposal Parties without Internet access can request the proposal package in writing by facsimile to (303) 445-6345 or to the email address contained herein rjackson@do.usbr.gov. Telephone requests will not be honored. Proposals must be submitted in accordance with the instructions contained in the proposal package. Proposals are due no later than 06/24/05.
Contingent upon Congressional funding, the number of awards made and the amount awarded for each area will be based on the quality of the proposals received and available funding. Offerors (other than academic institutions of higher education and non-profit research institutions) must be willing to cost-share 50% or more of the project cost, depending on the financial need of the project. Offerors proposing to provide additional cost-share will be given greater consideration. Cost-sharing may be made through cash or in-kind contributions from the offeror, or third party, non-Federal participants. Cost-sharing is not mandatory from academic institutions, but is strongly encouraged. Awards may be made to academic institutions of higher education, including United States-Mexico binational research foundations and inter-university research programs established by the two countries, and non-profit research institutions without any cost-sharing requirement. No profit or fee will be allowed. Patent rights for any developments will be retained by the research partner (offeror) in accordance with provisions contained in the solicitation. Reclamation's state-of-the-art water treatment laboratory and pilot-scale facilities are available for use on a cost reimburseable basis. These include the Technical Service Center in Denver, Colorado, and the Water Quality Improvement Center, in Yuma, Arizona. Any responsible source, to include individuals, academic institutions, commercial or industrial organizations, private entities, public entities (including state and local), or Indian Tribal Governments, may submit a proposal which will be considered by Reclamation. Foreign entities, other than United States-Mexico binational research foundations and inter-university research programs established by the two countries, are not eligible for funding under the authorizing legislation for this program. Federal agencies are not eligible to apply. Proposals will be reviewed for: overall scientific and/or technical merit; results from earlier successful pilot-plant investigations indicating the project is at demostration stage; potential contributions to Reclamation's DWPR program objectives; qualifications of the proposer; and reasonableness of the estimated project costs.
