SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On Wednesday, June 15, 2016, NTIS published a notice in the Federal Register (81 FR 39025), requesting proposals from interested for-profit, non-profit, or research performing organizations to enter into a Joint Venture Partnership with NTIS to assist Federal agencies to develop and implement innovative ways to collect, connect, access, analyze, or use Federal data and data services. An informational session and webinar about the opportunity were held on Thursday, July 7, 2016. The session was recorded and is posted on the NTIS Web site at www.ntis.gov. Due to the many questions received from interested parties and requests for additional time to prepare proposals, NTIS is extending the proposal submission period to 11:59 p.m. Eastern Time on Tuesday, August 9, 2016. Proposers who submitted proposals by the August 1, 2016 deadline but who want to use the additional preparation time may withdraw the proposal they submitted and submit a complete, revised proposal by the August 9, 2016 deadline.
