At the September CDI Monthly Meeting, Kevin Gallagher announced the FY17 Request for Proposals (RFP), an open opportunity for grassroots ideas that support data integration for the Earth and biological Sciences.

The CDI Request for Proposals is a way to fund ideas that don't fit into traditional USGS funding paths, and to bring your data integration needs into the light for further consideration.

We look forward to seeing your ideas in the form of a 2-page statement of interest, submitted by October 14, 2016. 

All CDI members will have the chance to view, comments, and vote on the statements of interest in the first phase of this RFP!

Please spread the word to all who may be interested!
