  • Analysis of Funding in the 2009 Economic Stimulus
    Bill
  • Presentation to Brown University
  • April L. Burke, Donna J. Dean, Ph.D., Carole
    McGuire and Elizabeth Grossman Ph.D.
  • March 23, 2009

Lewis-Burke Associates LLC
  • Full service federal government relations firm
    employing 12 government relations and science
    policy professionals
  • 21 clients, exclusively from the higher education
    and non-profit science and technology sectors
  • Efforts are directed at increasing the
    effectiveness of a clients interactions with
    the federal government (the Administration,
    Congress, federal agencies)
  • Help Brown with its interactions with the federal
    agencies

3
AMERICAN RECOVERY AND REINVESTMENT ACT
  • February 17 signed by President Obama
  • Totals 787 billion
  • Create jobs assistance to state and local
    governments tax relief and assistance for
    families and businesses and address long-term
    challenges associated with health care, energy,
    and climate change
  • This presentation focuses on stimulus funding of
    interest to Brown research

4
Overview
  • President Obama asking for results
  • Federal agencies gearing up to obligate the funds
  • Funding is available through September 30, 2010
  • Brown should concentrate on existing strengths
    and projects already in the pipeline
  • Enhanced transparency and reporting requirements
    Recovery.gov will track expenditure of the
    stimulus funding by project, contracts, and jobs
    created

    Medical Records

11
Department of Energy
12
Department of Energy
  • Key agency for President Obamas initiatives in
    energy independence and climate change
  • 1.6 billion DOE Office of Science for basic
    research
  • Devote part to infrastructure projects and
    facility upgrades to address backlog
  • Devote part to funding new Energy Frontier
    Research Centers

13
DOE Long-term
  • 40 billion to develop clean, efficient domestic
    sources of energy
  • Funding will largely implement President Obamas
    energy plan
  • Research opportunities in energy efficiency and
    renewable energy and fossil energy applied
    research
  • Spending likely to be focused on partnerships of
    industry, academia, and DOE national laboratories

14
DOE Smart Grid
  • 4.5 billion Development of the smart
    electricity grid compare to 137 million
  • RD focus on high temperature superconductivity
    RD visualization and controls energy storage
    and power electronics and renewable and
    distributed systems integration
  • New solicitations likely focus on utilities and
    industry partnerships

15
DOE EERE Research
2.5 Billion Total
In billions
16
DOE Clean Energy Priority
  • Chu Clean energy priorities include deploying
    demonstrated RE technologies (wind, solar,
    geothermal) at scale and cost-effectively
  • Demonstrate next-generation energy technologies
    (ccs, cellulosic biofuels, batteries and storage
    systems, enhanced geothermal, next-generation
    nuclear)
  • Research and develop future energy technologies
    (advanced solar, methane hydrates, coal-bed
    methane, enhanced oil recovery)

17
DOE Fossil Energy RD
  • 1 billion Fossil Energy RD programs (coal,
    natural gas, oil) that address fuel and power
    systems fuel cells advanced turbine
    technologies likely to go to FutureGen project
    in Illinois
  • 1.5 billion Competitive solicitation for a
    range of industrial carbon capture and energy
    efficiency improvement projects, including a
    small amount of innovative concepts for
    beneficial CO2 reuse

18
DOE Fossil Energy (cont.)
  • 50 million Competitive grants for site
    characterization activities in geologic
    formations
  • 20 million Geologic sequestration training and
    research grants

19
DOE ARPA-E
  • Establish of Advanced Research Projects Agency
    for Energy (ARPA-E)
  • Goal Support novel, early-stage energy
    research technology development RD on
    manufacturing processes technology demonstration
    and tech transfer
  • High-risk, high-reward RD and transformational
    science are priorities for Secretary Chu

20
DOE Infrastructure
  • Office of Science funding address the backlog
  • Green campuses
  • Energy Efficiency and Conservation Block
  • Grants 3.2 billion
  • Funding to governors, state, local and tribal
    governments for energy efficiency and
    conservation projects by formula

21
DOE Education and Training
  • Chu Invest in breakthrough science to achieve
    transformational discoveries connect basic and
    applied sciences at DOE
  • Create millions of green jobs 500 million is
  • provided to the Department of Labor for projects
    to prepare workers for careers in energy
    efficiency and renewable energy
  • Develop science and engineering talent attract
    the best to DOE partner with other agencies,
    industry, academia, and globally
  • Position U.S. to lead on climate change policy,
    technology, and science

22
National Science Foundation 3 billion
23
NSF Research (2 billion)
  • Distribution Among Programs Funding will
    support all research divisions, not necessarily
    evenly
  • Primary Goal and Method of Distribution
    Increasing success rates in planned FY 2009
    competitions (no supplements)
  • Focus on the Pipeline Funding for early career
    researchers and support for undergrads, grad
    students, and post-docs

24
NSF Infrastructure and Instrumentation
  • Facilities Modernization 200 million to
    restart program to repair and renovate science
    and engineering research facilities (not new
    construction) expect new solicitation
  • Note NIST also has 180 million for existing
    research buildings construction grant program
  • Instrumentation 300 million for Major Research
    Instrumentation program new solicitation likely
  • Other Infrastructure Already-planned small and
    medium-sized infrastructure projects and ongoing
    discipline-specific instrumentation programs

25
NSF Education
  • Professional Science Masters (PSM) 15 million
    to establish a new program new solicitation
    needed
  • Increase Success Rates in Two Programs Noyce
    Teacher Scholarship program (60 million) and
    Math and Science Partnerships (25 million)

26
Stimulus Not Business as Usual
  • Programmatic decisions at agencies being made in
    days, not years
  • Once agency plans approved by White House, expect
    flurry of activity, with short turnaround times
  • Intensive tracking requirements (quarterly
    reports on spending and completion rates, jobs
    created)
