Coordination with program staff is advisable for unsolicited proposals. The standard application forms as furnished by the Department of Energy (DOE) must be used. For construction projects an environmental impact statement/assessment is required per the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA). The standard application forms as furnished by the Federal agency and required by 10 CFR 600 must be used for this program. This program is excluded from coverage under E.O. 12372.
This section indicates whether any prior coordination or approval is required with governmental or nongovernmental units
prior to the submission of a formal application to the federal funding agency.
In some cases, there are no provisions for appeal. Where applicable, this section discusses appeal procedures or allowable rework time for resubmission
of applications to be processed by the funding agency. Appeal procedures vary with individual programs and are either listed in this section or
applicants are referred to appeal procedures documented in the relevant Code of Federal Regulations (CFR).
Awards may be modified or extended as required.
In some instances, renewal procedures may be the same as for the application procedure, e.g., for projects of a non-continuing nature renewals will be treated as new, competing applications; for projects of an ongoing nature, renewals may be given annually.
