DE-FOA-0001237: Alternative Fuel and Advanced Vehicle Procurement Aggregating Initiatives

Amendment 000004 to DE-FOA-0001237

The purpose of this amendment is to change the application due date (from August 21 to September 1) as well as to correct omissions and clarify items in response to questions received re the FOA. Affected pages are 22, 32, 33 and 35. Changes are depicted in highlighted text.

The objective of this FOA is to develop and implement an effective purchasing/procurement process designed to coordinate and consolidate bulk orders of alternative fuel vehicles, sub-components, advanced vehicle technologies, alternative fuels, and refueling/charging infrastructure to significantly reduce the incremental cost of commercially available vehicles and/or critical components in markets nationwide. The process will result in increased deployment of efficient alternative fuel vehicles and an associated reduction in reduced U.S. dependence on foreign oil.

The eXCHANGE system is currently designed to enforce hard deadlines for Concept Paper and Full Application submissions. The APPLY and SUBMIT buttons automatically disable at the defined submission deadlines. The intention of this design is to consistently enforce a standard deadline for all applicants.

Applicants that experience issues with submissions PRIOR to the FOA Deadline: In the event that an Applicant experiences technical difficulties with a submission, the Applicant should contact the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance (exchangehelp@hq.doe.gov). The eXCHANGE helpdesk and/or the EERE eXCHANGE System Administrators (eXCHANGE@go.doe.gov) will assist the Applicant in resolving all issues.

Applicants that experience issues with submissions that result in a late submission: In the event that an Applicant experiences technical difficulties with a submission that results in a late submission, the Applicant should contact the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance (exchangehelp@hq.doe.gov). The eXCHANGE helpdesk and or the EERE eXCHANGE System Administrators (eXCHANGE@go.doe.gov) will assist the Applicant in resolving all issues (including finalizing the submission on behalf of and with the Applicant's concurrence). DOE will only accept late applications when the Applicant has a) encountered technical difficulties beyond their control; b) has contacted the eXCHANGE helpdesk for assistance and c) has submitted the application through eXCHANGE within 24 hours of the FOA's posted deadline.
