Broad Agency Announcement (BAA)

The purpose of the BAA is to request proposals for special projects and programs associated with the Agency's strategic plan and mission goals, as well as to provide the general public with information and guidelines on how NOAA will select proposals and administer discretionary Federal assistance under this BAA. This BAA is a mechanism to encourage research, education and outreach, innovative projects, or sponsorships that are not addressed through our competitive discretionary programs. It is not a mechanism for awarding Congressionally directed funds.

NOTE: The BAA is not intended to circumvent the regular program competitions that are announced either through the Omnibus notice or individual notices.
