The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP) held a state forum in Anchorage to provide interested entities more information about the MEP Program, the NOFO and answer any question regarding this funding announcement.
Following the state forum presentation, potential applicants also had a chance to schedule 20-minute meetings with NIST MEP representatives to ask additional follow-on questions.
9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. Presentation ( overview of program, federal funding opportunity, evaluation criteria, and selection factors)
11:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. One-on-One meeting with NIST MEP Representatives
Date and Location of the Alaska State Forum
June 7, 2018 – The Denali Commission, East Conference Room, 510 L Street, Suite 410, Anchorage, AK 99501
Background on Basis of Funding Opportunity
The Southwest Alaska Municipal Conference (SWAMC) has decided to exit the NIST MEP Program as of December 31, 2018. SWAMC and NIST MEP worked closely together throughout the process to ensure NIST MEP would have enough time to institute a full competition and ensure that there will be continued service beginning January 1, 2019 by a new organization.
