The NASA Astrobiology Institute (NAI) Cycle 7 Cooperative Agreement Notice (CAN) provides an opportunity for the submission of team-based proposals for membership in the NAI. The goal of CAN Cycle 7 is to maintain a multidisciplinary institute by selecting focused, interdisciplinary teams that complement without replicating the strengths of the continuing teams. The teams selected in Cycle 7 will replace the teams selected in Cycle 5, whose five-year Cooperative Agreements are expiring.
Now that the Government shutdown has ended, it is possible to identify new due dates that will ensure that Government proposers have time to prepare a response. The Step-1 proposal due date is changed from November 4, 2013, to November 18, 2013. The Step-2 proposal due date is changed from January 31, 2014 to February 19, 2014. The full text of the CAN is available electronically at http://nspires.nasaprs.com.
On or about October 18, 2013, this Amendment to the NAI Cycle 7 CAN will be posted on the NASA research opportunity homepage at http://nspires.nasaprs.com, or more directly at the NAI CAN NSPIRES homepage.
Questions specifically regarding this solicitation should be directed to: Dr. Mary Voytek, Senior Scientist for Astrobiology, Science Mission Directorate, NASA Headquarters, Washington, DC 20546; Phone: (202) 358-1577; E-mail: email@example.com
