This year's Request for Proposals Information Session was held on Wednesday, September 18, 2019 at 1:00pm ET.
If you have an idea but need some collaborators, you can start looking for CDI collaborators or comments, using the CDI RFP Collaboration Forum: https://my.usgs.gov/confluence/x/xh3bJQ
Statements of Interest (SOIs) were due October 11, 2019 by 5pm ET. We will be using Google Forms to submit the SOIs this year. Upon submission of the Google Form, you will receive an email receipt with a link that will allow you to edit your submission up until the deadline. Please check your SOI file before you upload it because you will not be able to delete it. You may submit the Google form before uploading a file if you are not ready and return to the form using your confirmation email to upload your final file. If you need to update a file you uploaded, simply upload the 2nd file and contact email@example.com to double check that we use the correct file. Please make sure to use the templates on the CDI FY20 RFP Forms page.
Full proposals are due on January 30, 2020.
Lead PIs and those who used the submission system in Phase 1 will be emailed information about the submission system in early January, after we can set up a new system Microsoft.
