The FY18/FY19 Broad Agency Announcement (BAA) for 3D Elevation Program (3DEP) is scheduled for release on August 31, 2018. 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 140G0118R0037) and (Opportunity Number G18AS00078). Applicants may contribute funds toward a USGS lidar data acquisition activity via the Geospatial Products and Services Contracts (GPSC) 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 26, 2018. Although the BAA remains open until September 30, 2019, submissions received by the initial October 26, 2018 deadline receive priority consideration for funding. Proposals received after October 26 will be considered for award based on the availability of funding.
