The Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Technology Transitions (OTT) and Office of Manufacturing & Energy Supply Chains (MESC), in collaboration with its newly established Partnership Intermediary Agreement (PIA) with DEFENSEWERX, called ENERGYWERX, will host an Objective Strategic Session (OSS) and Assessment Event (AE) to identify organizations that analyze and synthesize the core issues within clean energy supply chains across technologies.


Technology Areas

Primary technology areas to be analyzed may include: clean hydrogen, electric grid, electric heat pumps, electric vehicles, nuclear energy, solar energy, sustainable aviation fuels, and wind energy.

Secondary technology areas to be analyzed may include: geothermal energy, hydropower, grid storage, carbon capture, and critical materials.

In addition to above, additional topics may be added to either the primary or secondary technology areas.

The selected organization(s) will serve as the facilitator and collaborate, as appropriate and as approved, with third-party performers on efforts that support Supply Chain Analysis objectives:

For each technology area, analysis is likely to include: component-by-component risk assessment to provide a “risk heatmap”, key opportunities for supply chain intervention, supply/demand stack analysis, listing of relevant policies or other efforts to mitigate supply chain issues, and list of relevant resources (e.g., reports.)

Opportunity Announcement

Objective Strategic Session

Objective Strategic Session (OSS) [July 27, 2023]: DOE will provide further details about the Supply Chain Analysis opportunity. Potential performers have the opportunity to better understand the scope, scale, and intent of the Assessment Event and ask questions of the Government Stakeholders. The virtual OSS will take place on July 27, 2023 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET.

Information "Office Hours" Session(s)

Submission Deadline(s)

Submissions are due August 10, 2023 NLT5:00 PMET

Process Details


Phase 1 – Proposal Submissions Open [July 20, 2023 to August 10, 2023]: Interested respondents who could potentially provide expertise/solutions that meet the needs of the Government Stakeholders are to submit one (1) application form for Government only review. Please follow the submission instructions at the bottom of this webpage.

Phase 1B – Objective Strategic Session (OSS) [July 27, 2023]: DOE will provide further details about the Supply Chain Analysis opportunity. Potential performers have the opportunity to better understand the scope, scale, and intent of the Assessment Event and ask questions of the Government Stakeholders. The virtual OSS will take place on July 27, 2023 from 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM ET.

Phase 2 – Government Review and Downselect [August 10, 2023 to August 15, 2023]: DOE will downselect respondents/submissions with the highest likelihood of satisfying their needs. All respondents will receive a selection or non-selection notification o/a 15 August.

Phase 3 – Path Forward [August/September 2023]: Subsequently, selectees will participate in a discussion with DOE SMEs to learn more about the scope of work determined by the Government. The intent is for selectees to receive a formal Business-to-Business (B2B) Research and Development Agreement (RDA) and Statement of Effort (SOE) as a sub-award (15 U.S. Code, Section 3715) from ENERGYWERX. However, after discussions with the Government, successfully negotiated awards may fall under (but are not limited to) alternate mechanism of awards/interactions with any combination of these categories:

  • Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (15 U.S. Code, Section 3710a)
  • OTA for research or prototype projects (10 U.S. Code Sections 4021, 4022)
  • An award under 10 U. S. Code, Section 4022 may result in the further award of a follow-on production agreement without additional competition based on successful prototype completion. The Government may make this follow-on production award even if all successful prototype criteria are not fully met during the prototype project.
  • Procurement for experimental purposes (10 U.S. Code Section 4023)
  • Prizes for advanced technology achievements (10 U. S. Code Section 4025) and/or prize competitions (15 U.S. Code 3719)
  • FAR-based procurement contract

Phase 4 – Effort Underway [August 2023 to September 2023]: Throughout the work, DOE seeks frequent (~2-3 times per week) check-ins with selected organizations to provide feedback & guidance and receive interim results and insights. Additionally, selected organizations would work closely with the DOE team, including attending and participating in SME interviews (e.g., drafting agendas and interview questions, presenting interim work products for feedback and discussion). This would be a highly collaborative, fast-paced engagement model. Materials would be created in partnership and conversation with DOE stakeholders – with additional research and analysis supplementing where needed. Goal would be to produce as much useful content in time for key DOE decision points as possible with option to finalize work product after that date.

Deep technical subject matter expertise is not required as background; however, some familiarity with relevant technologies and industries will be helpful. The selected performer will need the work at a fast pace, quickly synthesize information, write in a clear and concise manner (with detailed footnotes and source tracking where appropriate), and to find supplementary information as needed (e.g., existing market landscape, relevant manufacturing announcements, pricing/cost data, supply/demand projections).
