Event information

NOTE: Due to the severe winter weather conditions experienced in large parts of the country and the resultant power outages and other hardship conditions, the proposal submission deadline for the subject program is being extended to 11:59 p.m. on February 10, 2014. This change will allow additional proposal preparation time for proposers who may have been impacted by these conditions, so that all proposers may prepare high-quality, responsive proposals.
