Before applying to a EERE Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), potential selectees must complete specific registration requirements. Of the registrations listed below, the EERE Exchange registration does not have a delay; however, the remaining registration requirements could take several weeks to process and are necessary before a potential applicant can receive an award. To be eligible to receive federal funding, all potential applicants must ensure these registrations are current.
- Register as an applicant in EERE Exchange
- Obtain a Dun and Bradstreet Data Universal Numbering System (DUNS) number
- Register with the System for Award Management (SAM)
- Register with FedConnect
- Register with the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act Subaward Reporting System (FSRS)
Selectees can not apply to opportunities with EERE until the registrations listed above are complete. In addition, recipients may not execute subrecipient agreements until those subawardees obtain a DUNS number and complete their SAM registration. Recipients are required to keep their registration and data current throughout the duration of the project.
