The following Requests For Proposals (RFPs) have been published in the Federal Register, and will remain on this site until the closing dates. This site is updated whenever an RFP opens or closes. Please read each RFP for the closing date and other information for proposal preparation. If you have questions, staff contact information may be found in the text of each RFP.
To obtain the complete RFP solicitation package, look for these documents:

(1) RFP - Highlights key program components, proposal guidelines, and information about the projected time sequence for awards, including proposal submission due date.

(2) Proposal Submission Instructions (PSI) - A required component of all Bureau solicitations. The PSI contains standard Bureau guidelines, technical instructions, and required certifications/forms to be returned as part of the proposal submission.
(3) Program Objective, Goals, and Implementation (POGI) -Elaborates on the program guidelines outlined in the RFP, providing more specifics to assist in program development. Normally, Bureau solicitations include a POGI; however, in some cases, the program office may have included complete program details in the RFP and did not prepare a POGI. Those interested in submitting a proposal must ensure that all parts of the Solicitation Package have been obtained before beginning work on
the proposal.

Solicitation Packages may be downloaded from this website, received via the Bureau's Grants Information Fax on Demand System, which is accessed by calling 202/401-7616, (your first order should be the "Table of Contents" containing available document order numbers) or requested from the Program Officer listed in each RFP.
