The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Strategic Environmental Research and Development Program (SERDP) is seeking to fund environmental research and development proposals focused on the development of analytical methodologies for determining total per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) in PFAS-free firefighting formulations. SERDP invests across the broad spectrum of basic and applied research, as well as advanced technology development. The development and application of innovative environmental technologies will reduce the costs, environmental risks, and time required to resolve environmental problems while, at the same time, enhancing and sustaining military readiness.

SERDP is requesting proposals that respond to the following focused Statement of Need (SON):

The SON and detailed instructions are available on the SERDP FY 2023 Supplemental Solicitation page. Proposals responding to the Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 SON will be selected through a competitive process. All proposals are due to SERDP October 28, 2022 by 2:00 p.m. ET.
