DoD Supporting Agencies

The Broad Agency Announcements (BAAs) linked below are informational only. You will use the BAAs only to determine research topics relevant to DoD interests. You will obtain the BAA # - often referred to as the Funding Opportunity Number- and the BAA Title (the specific topic relevant to your research). You will not need to adhere to any requirements set forth by the BAA at all.

PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT THE PROGRAM MANAGERS listed in the BAAs for any reason. They are not able to assist you in any way with the NDSEG application or the proposal you are to submit for the NDSEG application. If you require assistance, please work with your advisor(s).
