Centers of Excellence are established for long term continuing research in specific areas of technology. Funding may be used for the establishment and operation of the Centers of Excellence and the related research projects. The FAA determines a need for a Center of Excellence in a specific area of technology and publishes a Notice of Availability of Solicitation in the Federal Biz Ops. Each applicant submits a description of the institutional capabilities, available facilities and equipment, and additional information as required in the solicitation. Researchers at the Center are expected to maintain a close working relationship with relevant FAA program offices who have responsibility in areas related to their research. Centers conduct semi-annual reviews, and a major symposium at the conclusion of each 3-year phase of research to satisfy Congressional requirements to disseminate results to a broad audience. RESTRICTIONS: 1. Matching Funds - The Federal grant shall be 50 percent of the cost of establishing the Center of Excellence and related research activities. 2. Maintenance of Effort - Each recipient will maintain its aggregate expenditures from all other sources for establishing and operating the Center and related research activities at or above the average level of such expenditures in its 2 fiscal years preceding November 1990. 3. Locations shall be geographically equitable. 4. Contract tasks are negotiable cost share.
