Opportunity NOAA-NOS-IOOS-2010-2001799: The Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) is working to link national and regional observations, data management, and modeling to provide required data and information on local to global scales. IOOS Regional Coastal Ocean Observing Systems (RCOOS) complement the observing systems managed directly by federal agencies to meet national priorities. With the guidance of Regional Associations to understand regional priorities, RCOOS provide the data, information, and products needed to address estuarine and coastal issues of importance to the nation's ocean and coastal regions and the Great Lakes. NOAA views this announcement as an opportunity to enhance the regional coastal component of IOOS. In addition, NOAA views the testing and development of sensor technologies to study and monitor coastal and ocean environments as essential to a sustained and operational IOOS. Thus, this announcement includes two focus areas for proposals: (1) Regional Coastal Ocean Observing Systems by Geography and (2) Verification and validation of sensors for coastal and ocean observing systems. The program priorities for this funding opportunity support NOAA's mission goals to: Serve society's needs for weather and water information; Protect, restore, and manage the use of coastal and ocean resources through an ecosystem approach to management; Understand climate variability and change to enhance society's ability to plan and respond; and Support the Nation's commerce with information for safe, efficient, and environmentally sound transportation. For focus area one, NOAA seeks proposals for one-year cooperative agreements to continue the implementation and development of the regional component of IOOS within the following regions of the United States: Northeast (Maine to Rhode Island), Mid-Atlantic (Cape Cod to Cape Hatteras), Southern California (Point Conception to the Mexico border), Pacific Northwest (Washington, Oregon, and northern California), and Pacific Islands (Hawaii). Proposed projects must build upon the progress already made by IOOS Regional Associations. It is expected that these efforts will result in a regional system that is optimized to provide data and products that meet regional needs and national IOOS specifications, and that are available in forms and at rates designed to meet the needs of regional decision makers. To accomplish that task, the regional systems will integrate existing observing system components, and construct products and data management processes to deliver data and information to the regional stakeholders for the benefit of the region. Proposals should demonstrate the approach and benefits of integration and implementation at the scale of the Regional Association (not sub-regional) and should address the following: (a) Regional deployment, operation and maintenance of sensors and platforms to address needs for data and information that have been clearly articulated by the IOOS Regional Associations as representative of their stakeholders. (b) Regional participation in developing a standards-based data integration framework (DIF) for data streams, quality assurance procedures, and data delivery. (c) Generation of regional or appropriately-scaled products, including data and model output, and improved interoperability of these outputs based on emerging standards and protocols, to facilitate the development of value-added, targeted products for identified users. For focus area two, NOAA seeks proposals that will provide information useful for selecting the most appropriate sensor technologies to study and monitor ocean and coastal environments, and to test, validate, and verify such technologies. NOAA anticipates making six (6) total awards in response to this announcement, five (5) awards in focus area one and one (1) award in focus area two.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible applicants are institutions of higher education, non-profit and for-profit organizations, and state, local and Indian tribal governments. Federal agencies or institutions and foreign governments may not be the primary recipient of awards under this announcement, but are encouraged to partner with applicants when appropriate. If requesting funds under this award, federal partners must identify the relevant statutory authorities that will allow for the receipt of funds. If a federal partner is a NOAA office, the funds will be transferred internally. If the Federal partner is an agency other than NOAA, they must demonstrate that they have legal authority to accept funds in excess of their appropriation. Because they would be receiving funds from a non-Federal source, the Economy Act (31 U.S.C 1535) would not be an appropriate authority.
