  NSF: Continental Scientific Drilling Coordination Office for the Division of Earth Sciences(CSDCO) NSF 13-514

The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) at the National Science Foundation (NSF) requests proposals from interested groups to support current and future continental scientific drilling activities. We request proposals for the establishment of a Continental Scientific Drilling Coordination Office (CSDCO) that will help coordinate planning for continental scientific drilling projects, in collaboration with the Earth science community, and will have the capability to supply continental scientific drilling support and expertise for NSF-funded research.

The successful proponent will be expected to manage drilling activities for the US scientific community, as needed. Requirements for drilling activities will be derived both from long-range science plans developed by the community as well as research proposals funded by NSF. We encourage collaborations with international partners such as the International Continental Scientific Drilling Program (ICDP) and with scientists funded by other sources. The CSDCO will be capable of assisting in the planning and execution of all aspects of the drilling activities that EAR supports.

Interested parties must propose to this solicitation with a plan to provide for these services under a single award. The CSDCO award will be administered as a Cooperative Agreement with an anticipated duration of up to five-years beginning on October 1, 2013. A mid-term management review will be required, which will guide a decision to re-compete or renew the Cooperative Agreement for up to a further five-year period.

USC may only submit one application in response to this program announcement. Your application submission MUST be coordinated with the Office of the Vice President for Research. Please send a two page abstract via email to Richard White (whitejrw@mailbox.sc.edu) by January 7, 2013. In addition to the 2-page abstract, you should also submit a biosketch for the PI.

NSF indicates that a letter of intent is NOT APPLICABLE and a full proposal is due by February 22, 2013. For more information: http://www.nsf.gov/pubs/2013/nsf13514/nsf13514.htm
