Preparing for the FY18 Proposals Process

We are gearing up to release our FY18 Request for Proposals (RFP) Guidance with a deadline for statements of interest at the end of January 2018.

The CDI has a unique proposals process where everyone in the community has a voice for commenting and voting on the initial statements of interest in Phase 1.

The highest-ranked ideas by the community move on to Phase 2, where a formal review panel evaluates the full proposals.

You can prepare for this year’s upcoming process by checking out the following info:

Collaboration Forum

One of the ways to improve your CDI Statement of Interest and final proposal is to have cross-Mission Area and cross-Center collaboration. If you have an idea for a CDI proposal but are looking for collaborators in other disciplines or centers to join you, post your idea and contact information on the collaboration forum. By posting your idea there, CDI Coordinators can help facilitate connections.
