FY 2008 Implementation of Regional Integrated Ocean Observing Systems: The Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS)will efficiently link national and regional observations, data management, and modeling to provide required data and information on local to global scales. Regional coastal ocean observing systems (RCOOSs) are designed to complement the observing systems managed directly by federal agencies that meet national priorities. With the guidance of Regional Associations to understand regional priorities, RCOOSs provide the types of data, information, and products needed to address the estuarine and coastal issues experienced by the different regions, and to leverage the delivery and applicability of data collected by local data network nodes. NOAA views this announcement as an opportunity to demonstrate the regional observing system concept. To assist in the implementation of the regional component of IOOS, NOAA seeks proposals for one- to two-year grant or cooperative agreement projects, with an optional third year, that will result in a regional system that has been optimized to provide data and products that are tailored to regional needs. The regional system will provide data and information in forms and at rates designed to meet the needs of regional decision makers. To accomplish that task, the regional system will integrate existing observing system components, prioritize additional observing system acquisition, and construct products and data management processes to deliver data and information to the regional stakeholders for the benefit of the region. Proposals submitted will demonstrate the approach and benefits of integration and implementation at the scale of the Regional Association 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 Regional Associations as representative of their stakeholders. In addition, NOAA published a Federal Register Notice on 2/8/2008 to change the funding years associated with awards for the solicitation ``FY 2008 Implementation of Regional Integrated Ocean Observing Systems'' announced in the Federal Register on July 2, 2007 (72 FR 36263) and amended on November 15, 2007 (72 FR 64047). Total anticipated funding for all awards is approximately $25,000,000 and is subject to the availability of FY 2008 and/or FY 2009 appropriations. The previous announcement indicated that awards were subject to the availability of FY 2008 appropriations only, however, this amendment changes this process to allow FY 2008 and/or FY 2009 appropriations to be used. This notice applies to all applicants who have previously submitted a full proposal under this announcement. All other requirements for this solicitation remain the same.

Additional Information on Eligibility
Eligible funding 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. Federal partners must identify the relevant statutory authorities that will allow for the receipt of funds. If applicants will have partners who would receive grant funds, the lead grantee will be expected to provide funds using subcontracts or other appropriate mechanisms to the project partners. If the partners are federal agencies other than NOAA, the grantee and the federal partner must use interagency agreements or otherwise take steps relevant to their organizations to ensure that funds can be transferred by the primary grantee and received by any federal partners. If a federal partner is a NOAA office, the funds will be transferred internally. Before non-NOAA Federal applicants may be funded, they must demonstrate that they have legal authority to accept funds in excess of their appropriation. Because of the nature of this competition, the Economy Act (31 U.S.C. 1535) is not an appropriate authority.
