Up to $40 million will be made available for the operation of the Ocean Energy Safety Institute (OESI) through this cooperative agreement, that includes substantial involvement with BSEE and the Department of Energy (DOE), during the 5-year project period. The BSEE will accept proposals for the operation and maintenance of an institute that will facilitate research and development and other related tasks to support improvements in safety and environmental protection for offshore oil and gas and wind developments. OESI will be a collaborative initiative involving government, academia and scientific experts. The recipient institution receiving the award will be responsible for managing OESI, providing input on yearly objectives, conducting certain work to further the attainment of those objectives, and being a focal point for collaboration on issues within the OESI mandate. While OESI will operate independently of BSEE and DOE, both agencies will be substantially involved in the institute through a Joint Steering Committee (JSC), which will include representatives from each agency with expertise related to oil and gas, offshore wind and marine and hydrokinetic (MHK) energy technologies. The JSC will provide input to OESI on its technology roadmaps, annual plans, and review and approve its major deliverables. The complete funding opportunity description is included under the Related Documents tab.
