SMD will not provide any feedback on a submitted Expression of Interest. NASA SMD will keep EOI contents confidential and will use responses to improve management of the augmentation and extension processes. 


A forthcoming amendment adding a new program element  to the Research Opportunities in Space and Earth Sciences (ROSES) – 2020, solicitation NNH20ZDA001N, is expected to be entitled “SMD Post-COVID Recovery” with requests for augmentations or funded grant extensions due to be submitted after October 1, 2020. An EOI submission is not required nor will it limit the submission of a future proposal, for a grant, contract, cooperative agreement agreements, or inter-agency transfers, whether inside or outside NASA.
