Phase II awards will be made only to firms on the basis of results from the Phase I effort, and the scientific and technical merit of the Phase II proposal. In addition, proposals which identify a follow-on Phase III funding commitment from non-Federal sources will be given special consideration. Phase II awards will typically cover two to five man-years of effort over a period generally not to exceed 24 months, also subject to negotiation. The number of Phase II awards will depend upon the success rate of the Phase I effort and availability of funds. Phase II is the principal research or RD effort, and will require a more comprehensive proposal which outlines the intended effort in detail. Phase II proposals received in each topic area in the DoD solicitation brochure are evaluated on a competitive basis in the organization which generated the topic, by scientists and engineers knowledgeable in that area and in accordance with the following criteria a Anticipated benefits of the research or development to the total DoD RD effort, b Scientifictechnical quality of the proposal, with special emphasis on its innovation and originality, c Qualifications of the principal investigator and other key personnel to carry out the proposed work, d Degree to which the Phase I objectives were met at the time of Phase II proposal submission, and e Adequacy of the Phase II objectives to meet the opportunity or solve the problem.
