Leadership-Class System Acquisition - Creating a Petascale Computing Environment for Science and Engineering: NSFs goal for high performance computing (HPC) in the period 2006-2011 is to enable petascale science and engineering through the deployment and support of a world-class HPC environment comprising the most capable combination of HPC assets available to the academic community. The petascale HPC environment will enable investigations of computationally challenging problems that require computing systems capable of delivering sustained performance approaching 1015 floating point operations per second (petaflops) on real applications, that consume large amounts of memory, and/or that work with very large data sets. Among other things, researchers will be able to perform simulations that are intrinsically multi-scale or that involve the simultaneous interaction of multiple processes. HPC Resource Providers - those organizations willing to acquire, deploy and operate HPC systems in service to the broad science and engineering research and education community - play a key role in the provision and support of a national HPC environment. With this solicitation, NSF requests proposals from organizations, or groups of organizations, willing to serve as a petascale HPC Resource Provider, and who propose to acquire and deploy a new, state-of-the-art, petascale HPC system. A competitive, petascale HPC system will: *Enable researchers to work on a range of computationally-challenging science and engineering applications at the frontiers of research; *Incorporate reliable, robust system software essential to optimal sustained performance; *Provide a high degree of stability and usability; and, *Function as a community-driven resource that actively engages the research and education communities in petascale science and engineering. A robust and effective HPC acquisition process, driven by the requirements of the science and engineering research and education community, is one of the key elements of NSFs HPC strategy. Accordingly, the desired capabilities of the system to be acquired are defined in terms of performance on model problems.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Proposals may only be submitted by the following: Institutions of higher education, non-profit, non-academic organizations directly associated with educational or research activities, and FFRDCs are eligible to submit proposals. For-profit organizations may also participate in proposals, but only as sub-awardees to a submitting organization. An eligible organization may submit only one preliminary proposal to this competition. A full proposal may only be submitted by an organization invited to do so after the required preliminary proposals have been reviewed. There is no restriction on the number of preliminary proposals or full proposals in which an organization may appear as a sub-awardee. Collaborative projects may only be submitted as a single preliminary proposal and a single full proposal, in which a single award is being requested. The involvement of partner organizations should be supported through sub-awards administered by the submitting organization.
