Question 1: I'd like to setup a call for my team to ask various questions regarding the Research and Development for Hydrogen Storage FOA. Is this possible?
Answer 1: All questions related to FOA number DE-FOA-0000827 must be submitted to DOE attempts to respond to all questions within 3 business days unless a similar question and answer has already been posted on the website. Therefore, please check the website for a similar question prior to sending in another.  Questions and responses will be posted on the EERE eXCHANGE website at: after selecting the applicable FOA number from the drop down menu. Please be advised that proprietary or personally identifiable information (PII) will be removed from questions prior to posting on the EERE eXCHANGE website.
Question 2: I had a question regarding the Non-DOE/NNSA FFRDCs and non-DOE GOGOs being eligible for Subrecipient, but not Prime Recipient. Do you happen to know if any national laboratories fall under this category?
Answer 2: If the National Laboratory is a DOE/NNSA Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) and DOE Government-Owned, Government-Operated (GOGO), the National Laboratory would be eligible to apply for funding as a Prime Recipient or Subrecipient. Other Federal agencies have FFRDCs, and those Non-DOE/NNSA  FFRDCs are only eligible to apply for funding as a Subrecipient, but not eligible to apply as a Prime Recipient. See Section III.2 for information regarding eligibility.
Question 3: Regarding FOA DE-FOA-0000827, is there a limitation on how many concept paper/full proposals a particular institution can lead? I see on page 23 that more than one application can be submitted, but nothing specifically about being 'prime' on a limited number of applications.
Answer 3: There is no limitation on how many concept papers/full proposals a particular entity can lead. Additionally, a single entity eligible to apply as the Prime Applicant under this FOA may submit concept papers/full proposals for all topic areas listed in the FOA. See Section III.2 of the FOA to reference information regarding eligibility.
Question 4: I was browsing through DE-FOA-0000827, Research and Development for Hydrogen Storage, and noted that the FOA is for compressed hydrogen storage. I have some interest from clients in liquid hydrogen storage, and while it does not look like that is a fit for the current opportunity, I was wondering if there are is potential in the future of that aspect for opportunities and any information on that front that could be shared?
Answer 4:

Topics 1 of the subject FOA is specifically for compressed hydrogen storage for onboard light duty vehicle use. For the upcoming planned initial commercialization of hydrogen-fueled Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs), the automotive manufacturers have indicated they intend to use 700 bar compressed hydrogen storage onboard. While demonstration activities for the use of liquid hydrogen storage onboard light duty vehicles have been previously carried out, there are currently little to no activities on the use of liquid hydrogen onboard storage, and therefore the DOE currently does not intend to pursue further development of onboard liquid hydrogen storage systems for light duty vehicle applications. Liquid hydrogen is widely used for the bulk distribution and storage of hydrogen, and may be the storage technology of choice for other non-light duty vehicle applications.

Question 5: Porous silicon for hydrogen storage is covered by the following US patents: 7,721,601; 7,833,428; and 8,518,856. System metrics are 0.035 kg H2/kg system, and 0.05 kg H2/L system. The recharge mechanism involves the spillover effect. This would seem to be excluded per section I.E. In every other way, this technology would seem to be a perfect match to this FOA. Can you please clarify the spillover exclusion, and provide an opinion on whether the use of porous silicon is subject to, or exempt from it?
Answer 5:

Appendix D of the FOA includes tables of the hydrogen storage system performance targets for onboard light-duty vehicles, portable and material handling equipment applications. Submissions for novel material development efforts under Topic 3 of the FOA need to provide sufficient justification that the proposed materials have the potential to advance the state-of-the-art and meet the applicable performance targets. Proposed material development efforts need to be innovative and novel; DOE does not intend to fund efforts that have been previously published or patented without innovative and novel additions to the previous efforts that may lead to significant advancement to the state-of-the-art.


In recent years the DOE has funded several efforts concerning hydrogen spillover onto porous substrates. To date much of the reported spillover results have not been able to be reproduced by independent third party researchers or contain significant experimental errors. Several recent efforts have attempted to determine if hydrogen spillover onto porous carbon substrates has potential to lead to enhanced hydrogen sorption at ambient temperatures, including an international effort led by NREL with support by the DOE. While finding that there is an interaction by spiltover monoatomic hydrogen onto the substrates, there is not strong indication that the phenomena may lead to significantly enhanced reversible storage capacities at ambient temperatures. For instance see: H. Oh, et. al., Microporous and Mesoporous Materials, 177 (2013) 66-74. Therefore at this time the DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Office does not intend to fund further efforts of hydrogen spillover on to carbon substrates for hydrogen storage.

Question 6: Is the abstract separate from the 3 page maximum for the concept paper?
Answer 6:


Question 7: Is the one-page summary (abstract) for public release a part of the full application package?
Answer 7: Yes.
Question 8: What information is required for the Concept Paper?
Answer 8: Please see Section IV.C.1 to reference all applicable information regarding Concept Paper requirements.
Question 9: If the Concept Paper submitted against the subject Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) intends to use Offeror’s Proprietary Information (in order to meet the “technical data and other support to show how the proposed target could be met” requirement listed in Section IV.C.1 (page 25 of the FOA), the Government advises that the Offeror include a Notice of Restriction on Disclosure and Use of Data (per Section VIII.E; page 51). The Notice of Restriction on Disclosure and Use of Data is normally contained on the Cover Page of a proposal. Therefore, if the Offeror includes a Cover Page so that it can incorporate the Notice in its Concept Paper, will the Government consider the Cover Page as part of the 3-page limit?
Answer 9:

Yes, the DOE considers a Cover Page as part of the 3-page limit. However, applicants may provide an addendum (1 page maximum), which may provide graphs, charts, or other data to supplement their Technology Description. Therefore, the concept paper may be up to 4 pages total, including a one page addendum. Please see Section IV.C.1 for information regarding concept paper requirements.

Question 10: If a table is reflected in the “Technology Description” vs. the “Addendum” of the concept paper will that table count against the 3 page “Technology Description” limit? Or should we work towards including the table along with any “other data to supplement [the] Technology Description” in the Addendum?
Answer 10:

If a table is included in the Technology Description, it would count against the 3-page limit of the Technology Description. It is at the discretion of the applicant to determine if graphs, charts, or other data (including tables) should be included as a part of their Technology Description or included as part of a 1-page Addendum. Please see Section IV.C.1 for information regarding concept paper requirements.

Question 11: I am interested to apply for the DE-FOA-0000827: Research and Development for Hydrogen Storage funding opportunity. Currently, I am a PhD student at a University working in a research lab. Our project is focused on Hydrogen storage materials. Could you let me know if I may be eligible to apply for this funding as a grad student?
Answer 11:

See Section III. of the FOA to reference eligibility information.

Question 12: Since the Concept Paper does not include an abstract description, does the Government still require the Offeror to draft an Abstract in accordance with the instructions contained in Section IV.D.8 of the FOA?
Answer 12:

Yes, DOE requires a one-page summary/abstract of the project as part of the full application. The Concept Paper is due prior to submitting a full application. Elements that were used in the Concept Paper, can be used in the one-page summary/abstract for the full application.

Question 13: We are interested in submitting a concept paper for the upcoming DE-FOA-0000827. I have a question regarding the format. Does the reference list count towards to the page limit 3+1(appendix)?
Answer 13: Yes.
Question 14: Under topic 1, what is the minimum gravimetric capacity needed to qualify for this proposal. Does this include the weight of hydrogen?
Answer 14:

There is no “minimum gravimetric capacity” required to submit an application. However in order to be favorably reviewed, proposals need to show either potential to meet the DOE performance targets (included as Appendix D of the FOA) or advance the state-of-the-art, which is described in reference 7: FCTO Data Record #13010: “Onboard Type IV Compressed Hydrogen Storage Systems – Current Performance and Cost,” The gravimetric capacity (kWh/kg (kg H2/kg sys)) is defined as the energy content (mass) of usable hydrogen divided by the mass of the total system including stored hydrogen gas.

Question 15: Will the concept proposals be published?
Answer 15: No.
Question 16: Will these concept proposals be catalogued and be available in any public domain?
Answer 16: No.
Question 17: Will there be an Non-Disclosure Agreement(NDA) between DOE and any participant regarding the technical concept disclosure?
Answer 17: No. DOE will not enter into an NDA with participants.  However, see Section VIII. Other Information - E. Treatment of Application of Information, of the FOA, for a description of how DOE will treat information contained in the applications.
Question 18: How does IP ownership on the technology developed under DOE funded projects get resolved?
Answer 18: Please see Section VIII. Other Information – L. Title to Subject Inventions and Article VIII. Other Information – N. Rights in Technical Data, of the FOA, regarding rights to IP developed under a DOE funded project.
Question 19: Could you please discuss IP ownership on material development that will go toward the final technology?
Answer 19:

Please see Article VIII. Other Information – L. Title to Subject Inventions and Article VIII. Other Information – N. Rights in Technical Data of the FOA regarding rights to IP developed under an award. Samples of the IP provisions for the awards can be found at

Question 20: If multiple parties work together on any project, what type of agreement has to be in place in order to be approved by DOE?
Answer 20: Financial assistance instruments (grants or cooperative agreements) are between DOE and Prime applicants. DOE does not have privity of contract with entities other than the Prime applicant. DOE does not review or approve of the contracts between the Prime applicant and their partners. However, the Prime is responsible for ensuring that the necessary Federal regulations are included in their agreements with sub-recipients. This information will be communicated after award selection and negotiation. Incorporated and unincorporated consortiums are also eligible to apply as Prime applicants. Please see Section III. Eligibility Information, of the FOA, for more information on consortia arrangements.
Question 21: We're interested in new hydrogen storage materials that would be applicable for commercial airplanes. Would an airplane fuel cell hydrogen storage technology fall under automotive (we have same weight and volume constraints) or would it be considered a portable power system?
Answer 21: The FOA seeks proposals for hydrogen storage technology development specifically for automotive, portable power or material handling equipment applications. Performance metrics for these applications are provided in Appendix D. Proposals for hydrogen storage technology development with potential to meet these performance metrics and that have potential use in other applications, e.g., commercial airplanes, will be considered.
Question 22: Regarding cost share for Topic 3, 20% of total project cost for all types of entities is required except "institutions of higher education, national laboratories…which will require 0% cost share." The majority of the work is to be carried out by an institute of higher education (let's say 90%), and an industry partner (for profit commercial firm) will be carrying out the rest of the project. Is the industry partner (commercial firm) still responsible for 20% cost share even if it is not required they submit a budget with the application?
Answer 22:

Yes. Given your example specifically related to Topic 3, 0% cost share would be required for the Institute of Higher Education and 20% cost share would be required for the For-Profit Entity. Furthermore, the commercial entity is only required to cost share on their portion of the project budget, in this case 10% of the effort.

Question 23: In going through information required for submission on the EERE Exchange system, it asks for funding levels. The funding levels allowed are "Proof of Concept/Seedling: $250k to $999k" or "Development/Demonstration: $1MM to $10MM". Does this mean that proof of concept papers can only ask for up to $1MM? The Table on page 15 of the FOA implies that up to $1.2MM can be requested for either 2 or 3.
Answer 23:

Please refer to the FOA Section II. Award Information for guidance on funding amount requests. The "Proof of Concept/Seedling: $250k to $999k" or "Development/Demonstration: $1MM to $10MM" amounts are part of the auto-generated EERE exchange system.  Individual Awards may vary between $800,000 and $2,000,000, depending on Topic Area. The table in Section II. Award Information, 3. New Applications Only, represents the anticipated award size for an individual award. The maximum amount that can be requested for Topic 1 is $2,000,000. The maximum funding amount that can be requested for Topics 2 and 3 is $1,200,000.

Question 24: We are an FFRDC and looking to partner with Industry. Although we proposed a shared “Effort” in our concept paper, we’ve yet to confirm an industry partner at this time. How should we reflect that under the “Team Members” tab on the Exchange? It appears we need to assign a percentage of “Effort” to each proposed partner. Will “TBD” suffice? How will that impact our concept paper during the “Evaluation”?
Answer 24:

Entering “TBD” under percentage of “Effort” is sufficient for the concept paper portion of the review.



Question 25: Unfortunately we missed the concept paper deadline of 5:00pm Eastern on 11/18/2013. Would DOE accept our concept paper via email?
Answer 25:

No. Unfortunately, we cannot accept a concept paper after the required deadline. The eXCHANGE system is currently designed to enforce hard deadlines for Concept Paper and Full Application submissions. Furthermore, a Concept Paper is required in order to submit a Full Application.

Question 26: Can you advise when the DOE expects to respond to the concept papers submitted on DE-FOA-0000827?
Answer 26:

DOE anticipates responding to applicants regarding their concept papers (with an “encourage” or “discourage” to submit a full application) on December 12th, but no later than December 16th.  

Question 27: Since the original deployment of the FOA shifted, can the due date for full proposals be shifted a couple weeks due to the holidays?
Answer 27:

The Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is currently on schedule. At this time, there are no extensions for the application submission period. If an extension is determined to be necessary, EERE will modify the FOA document with an official amendment.

Question 28: Is there a template for the Milestone and Deliverable Table for solicitation: DE-FOA-0000827?
Answer 28:

Yes. Please refer to “Appendix E – Example Milestones and Deliverable Table” of the FOA. An editable template has been added under “Required Application Documents” for this FOA in EERE eXCHANGE.

Question 29: On page 33 of the FOA under Item 11, it mentions that “Applications must provide a separate budget justification, PMC 123.1 for each subawardee that is expected to perform work estimated to be more than $250,000 or 25 percent of the total work effort (whichever is less), but in the 123.1 template it says: “The award recipient and each sub-recipient with estimated costs of $100,000 or more must complete this form and ensure it matches the application.” Is the amount in the FOA the correct value?
Answer 29:

Yes, the threshold of $250,000 or 25% of the total work effort is the correct value.

Question 30: I am trying to locate the Sample Rate Proposal form for fringe benefits, but cannot access the website located on the Budget Justification form. Could you send me a copy of this form?
Answer 30:

A Sample Rate Proposal (or PMC 400.2) can be retrieved from the following link:

Question 31: The submission instructions for the full application specify that the Technical Volume cannot exceed 15 pages. Does this page limit include references?
Answer 31: Yes.
Question 32: Is it still possible to submit a Letter of Intent to be considered for a grant?
Answer 32:

No. Under this FOA, a Letter of Intent was not required. However, a Concept Paper was required to be submitted by 11/18/2013 (5pm ET) to be eligible to submit a full application.

Question 33: We are proposing a foreign entity as a subcontract for our application to the FOA. The wording on pg. 34 suggests a waiver needs to be submitted, since 'all' of the work won't occur in the US, then points to pg. 17 for the contents of that waiver. According to pg. 17, a waiver request needs to include the information in the four bullets plus demonstration to EERE's satisfaction that their work would further the purposes of this FOA. However, pg. 17 is really about a foreign entity being the 'prime’ applicant. Is a waiver required for a foreign subcontract and would a paragraph of justification be sufficient?
Answer 33:

Participation by a foreign subcontractor requires the Performance of Work in the United States waiver. The FOA describes two types of waivers: (1) Foreign Entity Participation and (2) Performance of Work in the United States.


(1) Foreign Entity Participation: This is required if the Prime Applicant is an entity not incorporated in the United States and they do not wish to designate a United States subsidiary as the Prime Applicant. The waiver requirements are on pg. 17, Section III.A.3:

Foreign entities may request a waiver of the requirement to designate a subsidiary in the United States as the Prime Recipient in the Full Application (i.e., a foreign entity may request that it remains the Prime Recipient on the award). To do so, the Applicant must submit an explicit waiver request in the Full Application, which includes the following information:


·         Entity name;

·         Country of incorporation;

·         Description of the work to be performed by the entity for whom the waiver is being requested; and

·         Countries where the work will be performed.


In the waiver request, the Applicant must demonstrate to the satisfaction of EERE that it would further the purposes of this FOA and is otherwise in the interests of EERE to have a foreign entity serve as the Prime Recipient.


(2) The Performance of Work in the United States waiver: This is required if any work is done outside of the United States, whether it is the Prime applicant or the sub-recipient. The circumstances when this waiver applies are described on pg. 34. However, the waiver requirements and content are described on pg. 36-37, Section IV.I.3:


To seek a waiver of the Performance of Work in the Unites States requirement, the Applicant must submit an explicit waiver request in the Full Application, which includes the following information:


·         The countries in which the work will be performed;

·         A description of the work to be performed outside the U.S.; and

·         The rationale for performing the work outside the U.S.


For the rationale, the Applicant must demonstrate to the satisfaction of the EERE Contracting Officer that a waiver would further the purposes of this FOA and is otherwise in the interests of EERE and the United States. For example, an Applicant may seek to demonstrate the United States economic interest will be better served by having certain work performed outside the United States (e.g., demonstrate the expertise to develop the technology exists only outside the United States, but the technology’s ultimate commercialization will result in substantial benefits to the United States such as improved electricity reliability or creating domestic jobs). The Contracting Officer may require additional information before considering the waiver request.


Question 34: Could you please provide examples of qualified expenses under the cost-sharing requirement?
Answer 34:

Please reference Section III.B and/or “Appendix B – Cost Share Information” of the FOA for information regarding Cost Sharing. In addition, for regulations on cost sharing, please refer to Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Title 10 (energy) Part 600 (Financial Assistance Rules) Sections §600.30, §600.123, §600.224, or §600.313.

Question 35: What IP rights do participants have if awarded the grant?
Answer 35: Please reference Section VI.C.11 of the FOA for information regarding Intellectual Property Provisions. If selected for award, additional Intellectual Property matters would be discussed during negotiations.
Question 36: The FoA we are responding to also indicates that subawardees with total budget costs of more than $250,000 (or 25% of the total effort whichever is less) will have to complete a separate budget justification. However, the budget justification form indicates that subawardees with total budgets of more than $100,000 would have to fill out a separate budget justification form. Which direction is correct and should be followed?
Answer 36: As indicated in Section IV D. 11 of the FOA, applicants must provide a separate budget justification, PMC 123.1 (i.e., budget justification for each budget year and a cumulative budget) for each subawardee that is expected to perform work estimated to be more than $250,000 or 25 percent of the total work effort (whichever is less).  This is regardless of any instructions to the contrary  on the PMC 123.1.
Question 37: Is there still a $400k ceiling on the total cost to government during the first year of the project responding to DE-FOA-0000827?
Answer 37: Please refer to Section II. A. 1.  of the FOA for a discussion of estimated funding.
Question 38: If an Institution of Higher Education (IHE) is the prime on a proposal and has a subaward to a for profit company of less than $200,000, does cost share apply? If so does the 20 % cost share apply to the entire award or the subaward to the company?
Answer 38: The cost sharing requirements specified in Section III. B. of the FOA apply to the Prime Recipient.  Thus, if an IHE is the Prime Recipient, then the cost sharing requirement would be either 20% or 0% for the entire award, depending on the Topic.
Question 39: Review of Section II.A.1 of the latest version of the FOA does not answer my question about whether there is still a $400k ceiling on the total cost to the government during the first year of a project responding to DE-FOA-0000827. Is there a $400k ceiling on the total cost to the government during the first year of a project responding to DE-FOA-0000827? Such a ceiling was mentioned during the Annual Merit Review but that was already more than six month ago.
Answer 39:

No such ceiling amount is specified in Section II. A. 1. of the FOA.

Question 40: What type of format should the Milestones and Deliverable Table be saved as?
Answer 40:

The Milestone and Deliverables Table should be in MS Excel format.

Question 41: FFRDC who are not lead are limited to 50% of total project costs. Please confirm there is no limitation on the percent of effort for an FFRDC as the lead applicant.
Answer 41: That is correct. However, to clarify, this only applies to DOE/NNSA Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs) and DOE Government-Owned, Government-Operated laboratories (GOGOs). Non-DOE/NNSA FFRDCs and non-DOE GOGOs are eligible to apply for funding as a Subrecipient, but are not eligible to apply as a Prime Recipient.
Question 42: Pg. 23 of the FOA says an FFRDC cannot receive more than 50% of the Total project cost. Does this limitation apply only to topics 1 or to all topics? Does it apply to FFRDC if they are the lead organization or only if they are the sub-recipient?
Answer 42:

This limitation applies to all topic areas. Section III.E.2.v. on pg. 23 only applies to FFRDC sub-recipients.

Question 43: Who should the Contractor Authorization letter be made out to (Contracting Officer’s name)?
Answer 43:

The Authorization letter can be addressed to the Department of Energy. You do not to need to address the Contracting Officer specifically, but rather “To Whom It May Concern” would be sufficient.  

Question 44: Regarding the 15 page limit on the technical volume, my understanding is that the cover page counts towards the 15 pages - Is that correct? What about a table of contents? If I number a table of contents page with a letter (e.g., i, ii) instead of number, would that be acceptable, or do you prefer not to have a table of contents included? What about a cover page for the other sections (i.e. SOPO, Summary, Resumes) – can that be included or would that count towards the page count limitation when provided?
Answer 44:

The Technical Volume portion of the Full Application may not be more than 15 pages, and must include all of the information in Section IV.D.1 of the FOA. A cover page is required, however, the FOA does not indicate that a Table of Contents as a requirement for the Technical Volume. If you choose to include a Table of Contents, this would count towards the page limit. If Applicants exceed the maximum page length (15 pages), EERE will review only the authorized number of pages and disregard any additional pages.


For all other Sections (i.e. SOPO, Summary, Resumes), please reference Section IV.D. of the FOA to determine if a cover page is required.  If a page limit is indicated, a cover page would count towards the page limit.

Question 45: What CFDA number is to be used on the SF-424 application for DE-FOA-0000827?
Answer 45:

The Catalog of Federal Domestic Assistance (CFDA) number is 81.087, as shown on the cover page of this FOA.

Question 46: Is a SF-LLL form required if no lobbying funds have been spent? The list of documents on page 33-34 of the FOA does not make it seem to be optional, but there doesn't seem to be a way to indicate on the SF-LLL form that lobbying funds have NOT been spent.
Answer 46:

Prime Recipients and Subrecipients are required to complete and submit an SF-LLL, “Disclosure of Lobbying Activities” if any non-Federal funds have been paid or will be paid to any person for influencing or attempting to influence any of the following in connection with your application. Otherwise, this form is not required to be submitted.

Question 47: Is it possible to change one of the other organizations on the proposal to the lead (submitting) organization? If so, how should we go about this?
Answer 47: The control number required for a full application submission is associated with your concept paper submission. Therefore, you will need to work with the EERE Exchange Helpdesk to determine if you will be able to switch the entity associated with your specific control number.
Question 48: If we use a start-up company to run some characterization of samples for the project and pay them a fee for this as a vendor, but the Principal Investigators (PIs) are comprised of an institution of Higher education and a national lab, this would be exempt from Cost share under the Topic #3, correct?
Answer 48:

For Topic Area 1, cost share is required for all entity types. For Topic Areas 2 and 3, 20% Cost Share is required for all types of entities, except:  Institutions of Higher Education, National Laboratories, FFRDCs, and Non-Profit Organizations, which will  require 0% Cost Share. The cost share waiver is determined by entity type, not by the place of employment of the Principal Investigator (PI). The prime applicant and subrecipients are responsible for the applicable cost share based on their entity type. Vendors are not required to provide cost share.

Question 49: I am getting ready to submit the full application on FOA-827, do I only submit the forms and not worry about filling out the tab information for the full application?
Answer 49:

All required application documents must be submitted as specified in Section IV. of the FOA. If you have any specific questions about the exchange system, please contact the EERE eXCHANGE Helpdesk at

Question 50: Since the deadline for replies to reviewer comments indicated in the FOA is 2/25 at 5pm ET, when will applicants be given access to the reviewer comments?
Answer 50:

It is anticipated that the reviewer comments will be available starting the morning of 2/20 and the replies to reviewer comments will be due on 2/25 at 5pm ET as indicated in the FOA.  Once these dates have been confirmed, an email will be sent out the middle of next week to all of the applicant Points of Contacts provided in EERE Exchange.  This email will contain specific instructions and due dates for the Reply to Reviewer document.

Question 51: When and where can I access the raw reviewer comments? When is the “Reply to Review Comment” file due and where do I upload it?
Answer 51:

The “raw” reviewer comments were available in Exchange starting at 5pm ET on 2/20/14.  Initially there was a glitch in Exchange, so some applicants weren’t able to see the comments until ~5:30pm ET on 2/20/14, but all comments should now be viewable.  The “Reply to Review Comment” file is due by 5pm ET on 2/25/14.  These files should be submitted in Exchange – there is place to upload the file under all of the reviewer comments.

Question 52: What are the font and margin requirements for the Reply to Reviewer Comments?
Answer 52: Please see section IV.A of the FOA.
