Funding Opportunities

Laboratory Scientific Focus Area Guidance

Research activities funded by the Office of Biological and Environmental Research (BER) within the Department of Energy (DOE) Laboratories are subject to merit review. The merit review procedures for research at the DOE Laboratories are parallel to the processes and procedures for the private sector. (See 10 CFR 605External link, which governs the Office of Science (SC) grant programs). BER funds research programs at the National Laboratories addressing specific Scientific Focus Areas (SFAs) within BER's science portfolio.

SFA management and review processes are described in the BER document entitled “Managing BER Scientific Focus Area (SFA) Programs at the DOE National Laboratories.pdf file (194KB).” Updates reflect the SC digital data management policy.
