Technology for Demonstration and Commercial-Scale Production of a Reliable, Domestic Supply of Molybdenum-99 without the Use of Highly Enriched Uranium: The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) National Nuclear Security Administration's (DOE/NNSA) Office of Material Management and Minimization (NA-23) is soliciting applications from commercial entities that will result in the award of cooperative agreements to demonstrate and achieve commercial-scale production of the medical isotope, Molybdenum-99, hereafter referred to as Mo-99, without the use of highly enriched uranium (HEU) in the United States. The applications will be evaluated based on the ability of the recipient to produce Mo-99 in the United States and establish the capability to deliver to the U.S. market at least 3,000 6-day curies of Mo-99 per week, steady state, without the use of HEU. The criteria for evaluation and selection will be discussed within this FOA. Any commercial entity which already has the capability to currently produce at least 3,000 6-day curies of Mo-99 per week, steady state, without the use of HEU, will be eliminated from consideration. Awards under this FOA are subject to the availability of funds. Acceptance of an application for evaluation does not obligate DOE/NNSA to make an award. DOE/NNSA reserves the right to fund, in whole or in part, any, all or none of the applications submitted in response to this FOA. DOE/NNSA also reserves the right to award with or without discussions with applicants.

Additional Information on Eligibility
In accordance with 2 CFR 910.126, the FOA and award of Cooperative Agreements for the demonstration and commercial scale production of a reliable, domestic supply of Molybdenum-99 without the use of Highly Enriched Uranium (HEU) is to be restricted. Only U.S. entities with existing technologies to achieve commercial-scale production of Molybdenum-99 in the United States in accordance with the goals of this FOA may submit applications. Any commercial entity which already has the capability to currently produce at least 3,000 6-day curies of Mo-99 per week, steady state, will be eliminated from consideration. National laboratories, all DOE/NNSA Management and Operating contractors, and other Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDC) are not eligible to apply for an award under this FOA. Nevertheless, these entities may be included in teaming arrangements of the applicants or as subcontractors subject to the conditions in Section I.J of this FOA. The scope of work to be performed by the FFRDC contractor may not be more significant than the scope of work to be performed by the applicant. In addition, the applicant must request from the DOE/NNSA cognizant field contracting officer, authorization in writing for the use of a DOE/NNSA FFRDC contractor on the proposed project and this authorization must be submitted with the application.
