DoD’s Office of Economic Adjustment Seeks Cooperative Agreement Proposals; Reicpients to Provide Economic Indicators to Approximately Defense-Impacted Locations
Jul 16, 2013
The Department of Defense’s Office of Economic Adjustment has announced it is soliciting proposals that will result in a cooperative agreement to provide economic indicators on a recurring basis to approximately 80 Defense-impacted locations engaged in defense economic adjustment. OEA works with communities/regions experiencing base closure, realignment, and reductions in or cancellations of DoD spending. Implementation of a community's plan to redevelop surplus property (base closure) or address reductions in defense procurement may be impacted by changing economic conditions, including, but not limited to, declining home values, rising unemployment, declining tax revenue, and housing/business starts. Specifically, OEA is seeking proposals to continue to provide information to its program customer base on:
(1) Adjusted monthly and quarterly economic data for approximately 80 communities with Defense impacts; and
(2) a national baseline for identified economic indicators. This information was and will continue to be developed with and for the affected communities, and posted on the Internet to further assist OEA's community, state, and other customers in the coordination and delivery of adjustment assistance.
Eligible respondents include any State or local government or private entity. The proposal deadline is August 15.
