1 1 HOW TO USE COOPERATIVE ECOSYSTE
1 HOW TO USE COOPERATIVE ECOSYSTEM STUDIES UNIT (CESU) COOPERATIVE AGREEMENTS CESU Cooperative Agreements : The CESU Network facilitates interagency collaboration among the D epartment of Defense (D oD ) , other federal agencies, and partner institution s. There is one Master Cooperative Agreement per CESU , and it establishes the terms and conditions for all CESU projects . M aster C ooperative A greements are effective for five years , and have no associated funding commitment. E ach new , approved CESU project is a modification of PhaP uniP’s M aster C ooperative A greement . The DoD CESU NePwork NaPional CoordinaPor’s Office uses a Grants Officer to obligate CESU project funding . The Grants Officer uses the Scope of Objective s ( SOO ) to prepare a project award with the partner institution. DoD’s CESU Program Manager currenPly serves as GranPs Officer for most project awards; howe ver, the CESU Network may use any certifie d Grants Officer. Funding S ources : Funding for DoD’s CESU projecPs musP origi nate from within DoD and/or the Military Services (e.g., Operations and Maintenance ), or a competitive source, such as the DoD Legacy Program, Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP), or Environmental Security Technology Certification Program (ESTCP) . The funding source and SOO authorship play a major role in determining the need to compet e a CESU project. Sometimes, CESU projects may receive fund ing without competition . C ompetition R equ irements for CESU P rojects : I n general, there are three different scenarios that determin e whether a CESU project requires competition : 1 1) An installation manager or other DoD representative prepares the s cope of objectives . In this instance, DoD, in coordination with the Regional Coor dinator and the Grants Officer, compete s the SO O . The Grants Officer ensures that the CESU host university pub

2 lishes the Request for Statement s o
lishes the Request for Statement s of Interest (RSOI) on its w ebsite and , as reasonably appropriate, informs each known p artner point of contact about the RSOI at least 10 business days prior to the due date . In such cases, the partner that submitted the best response to the RSOI receives funding. 2) A CESU Partner Institution submits an unsolicited proposal . Under the terms and conditions of all current CESU Master Cooperative Agreements, the host university and all partner institutions within a CESU region may themselves submit a proposal to DoD. In such cases, competition is not required and an R SOI is unnec essary. 3) Funding for CESU projects is already competitively awarded . DoD CESU Regional Coordinators are not required to issue an R SOI for projects that are submitted to DoD 1 DoD guidance on CESU project competition requirements is available at www.denix.osd.mil/nr/CESU.cfm . 2 as part of a competition - based funding program such as the DoD Legacy Program , SERDP, or ESTCP. For projects that receive funds through such a program, the awarding organization may administer the award as a CESU project if the awarding organization and the award recipient agree to the terms and conditions of the current CESU five - year agreement. Support Requirements : A Grants Officer supports t he DoD CESU NePwork NaPional CoordinaPor’s Office by preparing , administering , and executi n g CESU Cooperative Agreements . DoD’s CESU Program M anager fills this role for most D o D projects. 2 There are two basic actions required of the Grants Officer: 1) P repar ing and executing each CESU agreement on behalf of the installation(s) wishing to use the CESU , and invoicing and paying bills submitted by the partner in coordination with the Project Manager. 2) Announcing the RSOI to DoD's CESU partners , when necessary, to determine a p rincip

3 al i nvestigator. In coordination wit
al i nvestigator. In coordination with the Project Manager and the Regional Coo rdinator, the Grants Officer determine s the best suitable partnering institution and p rincipal i nvestigator. T he Grants Officer then under take s the actions detailed in #1 above. CESU Membership: Federal agencies se eking to join a CESU must be accepted through a competitive process. If accepted, the agency must pay a flat entrance fee to cover the cost of implementing the partnership and, beginning in 2015, an annual sliding scale maintenance fee. T he number of CESUs in which the agency participates, as well as the number of projects it generates , will determine the fee . Federal agencies receive a significant benefit because partners agree to cap their overhead rate at 17.5% in exchange for reduced competition when responding to requests for proposals , an d for the opportunity to present the federal agencies with thei r own SOOs for consideration. DoD’s ParPicipaPion : DoD’s DepuPy DirecPor for NaPural Resources (DDNR) 3 oversees all activities related to the CESU Network. The DDNR is also DoD's representati ve to the National CESU Council. Regional CoordinaPors for each CESU organize DoD’s parPicipaPion. All Regional CoordinaPors work on a volunteer basis, and their primary responsibility is to ensure that the SOO for each potential CESU project qualifies und er the terms and conditions of the CESU Cooperative Agreement. Regional Coordinators also help installation managers, in coordination with a Grants Officer, select principal investigators and partner institutions to lead CESU projects.
