Request for Information (RFI) – DEPARTMENT OF DEFENSE Research and Education Program for HBCUs and MSIs

Attention HBCUs and MSIs:

The Office of the Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering (ASD(R&E)) is interested in assessing the research capabilities of Historically Black Colleges and Universities and Minority-Serving Institutions (HBCU/MI) in three areas, namely: Autonomy; Cyber Security; and Data Research Analysis. Based on the responses to this call, the Department of Defense (DoD) may issue a Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) under the Research and Education Program for HBCU/MI for award of cooperative agreements for award of a Center of Excellence in each of these research areas. The responses to this call for description of research capabilities do not commit DoD to issue a BAA; however, HBCU/MI are encouraged to respond to this request so that DoD can gauge the current capabilities of HBCU/MI in these areas.

All responses must be e-mailed to:  NLT 5:00PM Eastern Time, Thursday, December 5, 2013.
