WRAP Board Conference Call - Wednesday, April 23, 2014
summary | attendee list

WRAP Board Conference Call - December 10, 2013
The purpose of the call was to review a summary of a proposal and associated budget to be submitted on behalf of the WRAP for the 2013 Funding Opportunity Notice (FON) by the Joint Fire Sciences Program (JFSP). The proposal is due Dec. 11th and will go through a competitive review and approval process at JFSP over the next 6-8 months. The JFSP has funded 2 WRAP projects over the last few years, DEASCO3 (completed Summer 2013) and the current PMDETAIL effort (to be complete Fall 2015). The 2013 FON information can be found here. Since this is a competitive process and the certainty of funding is unknown, this is an informational call for the Board; no decision was required. If the proposal is funded, there will be another call to review and discuss the JFSP project award, and the Board can then decide to recommend acceptance and any necessary conditions for WESTAR to address in the contracting process with JFSP.
