FY18 USGS Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for the 3D Elevation Program (3DEP)

The FY17/FY18 Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) was released on August 16, 2017. The BAA provides detailed information on how to partner with the USGS and other Federal agencies to acquire high-quality 3D Elevation data. Information and contacts are available at Fed Biz Opps (Reference Number G17PS00746) and (Opportunity Number G17AS00116). Applicants may contribute funds toward a USGS lidar data acquisition activity via the Geospatial Products and Services Contracts or they may request 3DEP funds toward a lidar data acquisition activity where the requesting partner is the acquiring authority. Federal agencies, state and local governments, tribes, academic institutions and the private sector are eligible to submit proposals. Proposals are due October 20, 2017. Although the BAA remains open until September 30, 2018, submissions received by the initial October 20, 2017 deadline receive priority consideration for funding. Proposals received after October 20 will be considered for award based on the availability of funding.
