An unsolicited proposal is a written offer to perform a proposed effort submitted by an organization or Individual solely on its own initiative with the objective of obtaining financial support and not in response to a specific request made by DOE. DOE considers proposals in all areas of energy and energyrelated research and development with emphasis on long-term, high-risk, high-payoff technologies to ensure future energy supplies. Industry is expected to support development and near-term technologies. A proposal may be accepted by DOE if it explores a method, approach, or an idea or carries out research and development and does not duplicate work already underway or contemplated by DOE, and is not already known by DOE, or has previously unrecognized merit or value. This data represents the amount of total obligations for new awards submitted as unsolicited proposals. The number of actions, which were available for review, as well as the number of actions funded are included.
