Through this DURIP competition, the DoD intends to award approximately $43.4 million for FY 2014, subject to the availability of funds. These funds will be awarded via grants made by the administering agencies. Grants will be for the purchase of research equipment costing
$50,000 or more, which typically cannot be purchased within the budgets of single-investigator awards. With few exceptions (see section III.4.ii) an individual award may not exceed
$1,500,000 in DoD funding. With few exceptions (see section III.4.ii) an individual award may
not exceed $1,500,000 in DoD funding. In FY 2013, 169 awards totaling $51.4 million were made. They ranged from approximately $50,000 to $1,100,000, averaging $305,000.
Sufficient funds are not available to meet all of the instrumentation needs of universities. Awards, therefore, will be made to universities conducting, or being demonstrably capable of conducting research (with the proposed new equipment) in areas of interest to the DoD. DURIP awards are typically one year in length.
