(c) SECTION 3:


The proposer shall identify and explain any exceptions,

deviations, or conditional assumptions taken with respect

to the requirements of this Cost Proposal. Any exceptions,

etc., taken must contain sufficient explanation and justi

fication to permit evaluation. All benefits to the

Government shall be explained for each exception taken.

cause a proposal to be termed unacceptable, however, a

large number of exceptions, or one or more significant

exceptions not providing benefit to the Government may

result in rejection of the proposal as unacceptable.

The prime consideration in the evaluation of proposals for financial
assistance is to assess their merit in order to determine those pro-
posals that offer the greatest likelihood of successfully demonstrating
and subsequently commercializing emerging clean coal technologies.
The process of evaluation will consist of:

(a) Preliminary Evaluation.

(b) Comprehensive Evaluation.

(c) consideration of Program Policy Factors.

The source selection official will select proposal(s) for award taking into account the evaluation criteria and relevant program policy factors in order to determine the mix of projects which will best further the objectives and goals of this PON.

[blocks in formation]

In order to be considered in the Comprehensive Evaluation phase, a

proposal must successfully pass Preliminary Evaluation. Failure to
meet one or more of the Preliminary Evaluation requirements will

result in rejection of the proposal and, therefore, will preclude

proceeding to Comprehensive Evaluation. In the event that a proposal

is rejected, a notice will be sent to the proposer stating the reason(s) that the proposal will not be considered for financial assistance under this solicitation. The requirements to pass preliminary evaluation are as follows:


The proposal must meet the following Qualification Criteria:


The offeror must show that the proposed project or facility will be located in the United States of America.


The offeror must show that the proposed project or facility will be designed for and operated with coal(s) from United States mines.

iii. The proposer must certify that the request for Government

cost-sharing does not exceed 50 percent of the total estimated cost, and that the proposer will cost-share to

the extent of at least 50 percent in each of the three

phases, Design and Permitting, Construction and Startup
("Shakedown"), and Operation, Data Collection, Reporting,
and Disposition, proposed by the offeror.
