DENVER, CO, March 17, 2008 -- The Awwa Research Foundation (AwwaRF), a nonprofit organization dedicated to advancing the science of drinking water, has issued requests for proposals (RFPs) for 15 solicited projects on its 2008 research agenda. AwwaRF is providing more than $4 million in funding to sponsor the projects. The RFPs collectively represent a wide range of topics of critical importance to the drinking water community.

"Our research agenda is developed to target many of the biggest challenges faced by water suppliers," said Robert C. Renner, AwwaRF executive director. "The findings from AwwaRF research provide knowledge and guidance to help utilities and other water professionals stay ahead of emerging issues and continuously deliver safe, available, and affordable drinking water to the public."

A complete list of the RFPs are available on the AwwaRF Web site: http://www.awwarf.org/research/plansAwardsFunding/RFP.aspx

Proposal deadlines are specified in each RFP. All projects, unless otherwise indicated, must include 25 percent of the total project budget as in-kind or cash contribution. In-kind contributions can be in the form of labor, materials, or laboratory and other services, and may come from project participants such as water utilities, consulting firms, and universities. For each project, an appointed project advisory committee will evaluate proposals based on responsiveness to the RFP, scientific and technical merit, and qualifications of the researchers.
Guidelines for preparing solicited proposals are available on the Web site at: http://www.awwarf.org/research/projectAdmin/proposalGuidelines.aspx
