Question (1) As stated in the FOA, page 45, DOE requires that Applicants supply two separate components to the Full Application:
(1) A "Management Plan" as one component of the Full Application that describes the roles and tasks to be delivered by each distinct organizational member of the Project Team; and,
(2) a "Coordination and Management Plan" that describes how each Principal Investigator and the Key Personnel at that PIs organization will coordinate Project Deliverables as a project team, among multiple organizational partners.
Question (2) Applicants are not required to complete the Multiple Investigator Projects section if the proposed project will be led by a single Principal Investigator. A "Management Plan" is required, as described in the FOA, page 45.
Question (3) Merit Reviewers will receive and score the entire Application, including appendices, Strategic Plan, budget summary (as applicable), and all other required components listed on pages 7-8 of the FOA, for SUNRISE Topics A1, A2 and B. In cases in which DOE receives many dozens or hundreds of Applications, DOE will still assign a minimum of three Merit Reviewers to read and score each Application, though no Merit Reviewer will read and score more than 15 Full Applications. After reading and scoring all assigned Applications individually, Merit Reviewers will meet as a panel to discuss scoring and normalize potentially disparate reviews.
