DOE/NNSA Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) and DOE Government-Owned, Government-Operated laboratories (GOGOs) are eligible to apply for funding as a Prime Recipient or Subrecipient.
The recipient cost share requirement for applied R&D projects will be reduced from 20 % to 10% where:
(1) the Prime Recipient is a domestic institution of higher education; domestic nonprofit entity; FFRDC; or U.S. State, local or tribal government; and (2) the Prime Recipient performs more than 50% of the project work, as measured by the Total Project Cost.
Applicants who believe their project qualifies for the reduced recipient cost share requirement must be able to provide verification that the above requirements are satisfied.
Because FFRDCs and GOGOs are funded by the Federal Government, costs incurred by FFRDCs and GOGOs generally may not be used to meet the cost share requirement. FFRDCs may contribute cost share only if the contributions are paid directly from the contractor’s Management Fee or another non-Federal source.
