The Metal Casting Industry Technology Roadmap can be found at http://www.oit.doe.gov/metalcast/roadmap.shtml. Approximately $1,000,000 to $1,500,000 of funding will be available to fund the first year of selected research efforts. DOE anticipates making 5 to 10 cooperative agreement awards each with duration of three years or less. A minimum of 50% non-federal cost share is required for research and development projects over the life of the project. First year cost share can be as low as 30% if subsequent years have sufficient cost share so that non-federal share totals at least 50%. Collaborations between industry, university, and National Laboratory participants are encouraged. The issuance date of Solicitation Number DE-PS07-01ID14003 is on or about October 26, 2000. The solicitation is available in its full text via the DOE's Industry Interactive Procurement System (IPS) or the Internet at the following address: http://www.id.doe.gov/doeid/PSD/proc-div.html.
