(3) Authorities that arise indirectly as the result of statute. For example, authority to use a grant or cooperative agreement may result from:

(i) A federal Statute authorizing a program that is consistent with an assistance relationship (i.e., the Support, or Stimulation of a public purpose, rather than the acquisition of a good Or Service for the direct, benefit Of the Department of Defense). In accordance with 31 U.S.C. Chapter 63, Such a program would appropriately be Carried Out through the uSe Of grantS Or COOperative agreement.S.

(ii) Exemptions requested by the Department of Defense and granted by the Office of Management, and Budget, under 31 U.S.C. 6307, as described in 32 CFR 22.220.

Subport A–General

$22.100 Purpose, relation to other parts, and organization.

(a) This part outlines grants officers’ and DOD Components’ responsibilities related to the award and administration of grantS and COOperative agreement.S. (b) In doing So, it also Supplements other parts of the DoD Grant and Agreement Regulations (DODGARS) that are either Government.Wide rules or DoD implementation of Government.Wide guidance in Office Of Management and Budget (OMB) CircularS. Those other parts of the DODGARS, which are referenced as appropriate in this part, are: (1) Government.Wide rules On debarment, Suspension and drug-free workplace requirements, in 32 CFR part 25. (2) The Government wide rule on lobbying restrictions, in 32 CFR part 28. (3) Administrative requirements for grants and agreements awarded to Specific types of recipients: (i) For State and local governmental Organizations, in the GOvernment.Wide rule at 32 CFR part 33. (ii) For institutions of higher education and Other nonprofit Organizations, at 32 CFR part 32. (iii) For for-profit Organizations, at 32 CFR part, 34. (c) The Organization of this part parallels the award and administration process, from pre-award through postaWard matters. It therefore is Organized in the Same manner as the parts of the DoDGARS (32 CFR parts 32, 33, and 34) that prescribe administrative requirements for Specific types of reCipientS.

$22.105 Definitions.

Other than the terms defined in this Section, terms used in this part are defined in 32 CFR 21.130.

Administrative Offset. An action whereby money payable by the United States Government to, or held by the Government for, a recipient is withheld to Satisfy a delinquent debt the recipient Owes the GOvernment.

Advanced research. Advanced technology development that creates new technology Or demonstrates the viability of applying existing technology to new productS and processes in a general Way. Advanced research is most closely analogous to precompetitive technology development in the commercial Sector (i.e., early phases of reSearch and development on which commercial competitors are willing to collaborate, because the Work is not SO COupled to Specific products and proceSSes that the result.S of the work must be proprietary). It does not include development Of military Systems and hardware where Specific requirements have been defined. It is typically funded in Advanced Technology Development (Budget Activity 3 and Research Category 6.3A) programs within ReSearch, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E). Applied research. Efforts that attempt to determine and exploit the potential of Scientific discoveries or improvement.S in technology Such as new materials, devices, methods and processes. It typically is funded in Applied ReSearch (Budget Activity 2 and Research Category 6.2) programs within ReSearch, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E). Applied research normally follows basic research but may not be fully distinguishable from the related basic research. The term does not include efforts whose principal aim is the design, development, Or testing Of Specific productS, Systems Or proceSSes to be considered for Sale Or acquiSition; these effort.S are within the definition of “development.” Basic research. EffortS directed toWard increasing knowledge and underStanding in Science and engineering, rather than the practical application of that knowledge and understanding. It typically is funded within Basic ReSearch (Budget Activity 1 and Research Category 6.1) programs within ReSearch, Development, Test, and Evaluation (RDT&E). For the purposes of this part, basic research includes: (1) Research-related, Science and engineering education, including graduate fellowships and research traineeships. (2) Research instrumentation and Other activities designed to enhance
