Description: The USAFA is seeking unclassified research white papers and proposals (if requested) that do not contain proprietary information. If proprietary information is submitted it is the offerors responsibility to mark the relevant portions of their proposal as specified in USAFA-PASCC-BAA-2016. The United States Air Force’s Institute for National Security Studies (INSS), in partnership with PASCC, performs a range of research to investigate topics of interest to the security studies community. Investigations and research will focus on expanding knowledge related to countering weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and weapons of mass effect (WME). The program solicits innovative proposals for research on WMD/WME counterproliferation, nonproliferation, and strategy. The phrase “security studies research” refers to investigations in all disciplines, fields, and domains that (1) are involved in expanding knowledge for national defense, and (2) could potentially improve policy and international relations for combating WMD/WME. Disciplines include, but are not limited to: political science, sociology, history, biology, chemistry, economics, homeland defense, and public policy. This CALL is directed toward the research areas listed within the CALL document. Projects must be new research efforts. Proposals for the continuation of existing research projects funded under previous grant or cooperative agreement awards are not desired.
