ATP Correction & Notice of Proposers' Conferences

November 27, 1998

The November 20 SSTI Weekly Digest article on the current Advanced Technology Program (ATP) competition should have stated the following information on ATP's indirect cost policy:

  • for single proposer projects, ATP will fund only direct costs; the company must cover its indirect costs. Large businesses submitting single-company proposals must support 60 percent or more of total project costs which may include both direct and indirect costs.
  • for joint venture projects, industry must pay at least 50 percent of the total project costs. ATP's portion may include both direct and indirect costs.

Two ATP proposers' conferences will answer additional questions on ATP's policy toward indirect costs and many other issues. Those conferences will be held:

December 15, 1998 from 1:30 - 4:30 p.m. at the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Gaithersburg, Maryland, and

January 11, 1999 from 9:30 am - 12:30 p.m. at the Marriott Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco.

To register or request more information contact the ATP office at 1-800-ATP-FUND. Attendance is free.
