Proposals Due December 23, 2013
JSA owners, SURA and PAE Applied Technologies, have committed $400K to continue the JSA Initiatives Fund Program. Due to time dependency, the owners have pre-approved the award of FY2014 funds for several historically supported projects based on the recommendation of the JSA Programs Committee. Additionally, two owner-directed projects have been pre-approved for FY2014 funding. The remaining ~$140K funds will be awarded on a competitive basis.

JSA is soliciting proposals for Initiatives Fund support for fiscal year 2014. An Initiatives Fund Evaluation Committee will review eligible proposals that meet the criteria. The Committee will include Programs Committee members, Lab representation, Users Group representation, and external consultants as needed to ensure a fair and objective process. In addition to evaluating new proposals, the Committee will reassess the value of the programs requesting renewed support to ensure their on-going relevance and continuation. The Committee will make its recommendation to the owners (SURA and PAE Applied Technologies) early 2014. The owners have final approval of all awards from the Initiatives Fund. Proposers will be notified of the status of proposals following the owners' final decision.
