Dark Matter New Initiatives: The DOE SC program in High Energy Physics (HEP) hereby invites applications for new opportunities to develop the design and execution plans for small projects to carry out dark matter particle searches, making use of DOE laboratory infrastructure and/or technology capabilities. This FOA follows the recommendations of the Basic Research Needs (BRN) workshop for Dark Matter New Initiatives, which was held on October 15-18, 2018 [1]. The U.S. particle physics community's current vision for the future is embodied in the Particle Physics Project Prioritization Panel (P5) report [2] that presents a strategy for the next decade centered on five intertwined science drivers, including the search for dark matter particles. This FOA is for new opportunities to develop the design and execution plans for small projects to carry out dark matter particle searches, making use of DOE laboratory infrastructure and/or technology capabilities. The small project should support the dark matter science Priority Research Directions (PRDs) defined in the BRN workshop on Dark Matter New Initiatives [1] and described below.

Unrestricted (i.e., open to any type of entity below), subject to any clarification in text field entitled "Additional Information on Eligibility"
Additional Information on Eligibility
All types of domestic entities are eligible to apply, except Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) Contractors, and Nonprofit organizations described in section 501(c)(4) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 that are engaged in lobbying activities after December 31, 1995. DOE National Laboratories may not submit applications as prime applicants under this FOA, but they may submit proposals under its companion Program Announcement to the DOE National Laboratories (LAB 19-2112) at https://pamspublic.science.energy.gov. Applications from for-profit organizations that propose research related to current commercial activity may be declined without merit review. DOE/NNSA National Laboratory Contractor applicants are not eligible for a prime award under this FOA, but may be proposed as a team member on another entity's application if their cognizant DOE/NNSA Contracting Officer provides written authorization. This authorization should be submitted with the application as part of the Budget Justification for DOE/NNSA National Laboratory Contractor File. [This is not required for the National Energy Technology Laboratory because it is a Government Owned/Government Operated (GOGO).] Please note that failure to provide this authorization may result in rejection of an application prior to merit review. If a DOE/NNSA National Laboratory Contractor is selected for award, or proposed as a team member, the proposed work will be authorized under the DOE field work authorization system or other appropriate process and performed under the laboratory Contractor's M&O contract, as applicable. Non-DOE/NNSA Federal agencies and their FFRDC contractors are not eligible for a prime award under this announcement, but may be proposed as a team member on another entity's application subject to the following guidelines: The prime applicant must obtain written authorization for non-DOE/NNSA FFRDC participation. The cognizant Contracting Officer for the Federal agency sponsoring the FFRDC contractor must authorize in writing the participation of the FFRDC contractor on the proposed project and this authorization should be submitted with the application. The written authorization must also contain a determination that the use of a FFRDC contractor is consistent with the contractor's authority under its award and does not place the FFRDC contractor in direct competition with the private sector, in accordance with FAR Part 17.5. Please note that failure to provide this authorization may result in rejection of an application prior to merit review.
