Operational Energy – Innovation (OE-I)


OECIF Proposal Submission Process

  • Principal Investigator’s from the DoD laboratory system submit their proposals to Operational Energy Management System (OEMS) (project or sprout)
    • Can designate a Service or Community of Interest (CoI) for initial prioritization
  • Each Service and COI can select their top candidate within OEMS for consideration by the OECIF evaluation board
  • The Services and COI’s have the flexibility to develop their own down-selection process (outside of OEMS), but the project and sprout they wish to have considered for funding by the OECIF evaluation board MUST be submitted to OEMS
