Open Solicitation

FY 2022 OECIF and OEPF Solicitation released 3 May 2021

Final Award Decisions and future year funding is conditional and based on the availability of OECIF and OEPF program appropriations

Whitepapers and Quad-charts from the Services or Combatant Commands are due: 16 August 2021 by 14:00 (Eastern)

 

Summary

The Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Environment and Energy Resilience (ODASD(E&ER)), Operational Energy – Innovation (OE-I) is now soliciting Fiscal Year 2022 (FY22) proposals for the Operational Energy Capability Improvement Fund (OECIF) and the Operational Energy Prototyping Fund (OEPF).

OECIF is requesting Advanced Technology Demonstration (6.3) proposals in the following areas:

  1. Powering the Force: Support the deployment of more mobile and distributed operations with decreased and more agile logistics; reduce the risk of carrying fuel to the fight, especially through contested environments
  2. Electrifying the Battlespace: Enable the electrification of weapons, platforms, unmanned systems, and soldiers to field new weapons, sensing, active defense, and other technologies; advance power and thermal management technologies to meet the growing demands of high-power systems; pursue potential game-changing technology that drastically reduces energy resupply risks, costs, and signatures to enable persistent unmanned system and unattended sensors
  3. Commanding Energy: Capturing and understanding adversarial energy profiles to transform the Joint Force from reactive to predictive with energy management and control

OEPF is requesting Advanced Component Development and Prototype (6.4) proposals from successful OECIF investments in the above areas that have, or will have, service commitment to program of record transition in the FY23 or FY24 POM.

Funding Available

OECIF will accept three types of proposals:

  1. Multi-Year Traditional: These proposals can request up to three years of funding (four-year period of performance) at a cost of no more than $2 million per year.
  2. One-Year Surge: These proposals should focus on ready-to-go projects with clear transition pathways at completion. Surge proposals can request one-year funding (two-year period of performance) at a cost of no more than $4 million.
  3. One-Year Study: Proposals for studies that advance an OECIF focus area can request one-year funding (one-year period of performance) at a cost of no more than $1 million.

OEPF will accept One-Year Surge proposals as defined above.

Operational Energy Management System (OEMS)
Interim Authority to Test and Train (IATT)

As of May 2021, OEMS is operational in Amazon Web Services (AWS) GovCloud, managed by the Office of the Under Secretary of Defense (OUSD) Acquisition & Sustainment (A&S)/Environment & Energy Resilience (E&ER)/Operational Energy-Innovation (OE-I). OEMS is operating under an Interim Authority to Test and Train (IATT) following Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) requirements as it progresses through a full Authority to Operate (ATO) process determination.

The IATT, as well as the ATO, achieve DoD Impact Level 4 (IL4). The IL4 allows hosting of Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) information up to moderate confidentiality and moderate integrity, including export-controlled (ITAR/EAR) and privacy (PII) information. Through the IATT, OE-I is allowing OEMS to process and store unclassified information to include CUI for all Distribution levels except Distro B and E. If you have any questions, please contact OE-I representative, Mr. Daniel Shearer, at daniel.c.shearer2.ctr@mail.mil.

For more information, please refer to Section 3.2 of the DoD Cloud Computing Security Requirements Guide.
