Questions & Answers

Q1.Does Section (e) Applicant’s Current Fiscal Year Budget: require us to submit a companywide budget for the Fiscal Year? Or a project budget specific to the above-mentioned RFA?
A1.Section (e) Applicant’s Current Fiscal Year Budget: requires the applicant to submit a project budget specific to the RFA.

Q2.As part of the above-mentioned RFA, we would like to inquire about process of obtaining a “Certificate of Good Standing”. Will the same exception be made for this submission as it was in 2016? “Compliance with the business license requirements can be deferred until the preferred applicant is selected.”
A2.Section 3.4(a) “Certificate of Good Standing”, states that applicants must obtain a business license upon submission of an application. However, due to the complexity and cost associated with obtaining the Business License and Certificate, DOEE will require the applicant to state in its application that it will secure the required documents. DOEE will still require the proper license in advance of awarding a grant.
