DE-LC-000L078: Vehicle Technologies Office AOP Lab Call 1 FY20

EERE National Laboratory Guiding Principles require all offices to pursue a merit review of direct-funded national laboratory work. In line with these Principles, the Vehicle Technologies Office (VTO) is issuing this lab call for Fiscal Year 2020 (FY 2020). VTO will award only a portion of its total planned FY 2020 lab funding through this lab call process. Labs are also selected through the standard Financial Opportunity Announcement (FOA) process and are not restricted from applying to any FOAs.

Some labs also have continuing multi-year projects that have already gone through the merit review process. These will continue to be reviewed through the annual peer review process and labs should work with VTO project and program managers to ensure that ongoing projects are appropriately included in the AOPs to meet AOP deadlines. This lab call will only pertain to the new AOIs below.
