The Board of Regents made the following announcement: It has come to our attention that the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards (2 CFR Chapter I, and Chapter II, Parts 200, 215, 220, 225, and 230), which went into effect on December 26, 2014, contains provisions which effect the indirect cost rate that can be claimed for proposals and subawards submitted to federal agencies.

2 CFR 200, section 414, paragraph (c) (1) states that "the negotiated rates must be accepted by all Federal awarding agencies" unless deviation is required by Federal statute or regulation or when OMB is notified of any approved deviations by the Federal awarding agency head.

Furthermore, Paragraph (c) (d) further requires that the pass-through entities (i.e., the Board of Regents) comply with section 200.331,which states in 200.331(4) that "an approved federally recognized indirect cost rate negotiated between the subrecipient and the Federal government" must be included in the subaward by the pass-through entities.

What this means is that the restriction on indirect costs that can be claimed for federal NASA funds that was indicated in our RFP (i.e., 25% of wages, salaries and fringe) is no longer in effect. Institutions may charge their federally-negotiated F&A rate for the NASA portion of the funds. The Support Fund portion is still restricted to 25% of salaries, wages, and fringe, however.

Attached are brief descriptions of the award winners’ efforts that led to their selection, as well as brief descriptions of each prize category.

The Research office intends to hold a reception or some other type of event in the Spring, during which these prize winners will be honored further.  But we did not want to delay this announcement until an event could be finalized. 

Please join us in congratulating these accomplished colleagues on their achievements that are reflected in these designations.

Finally, we wish to thank all those who nominated colleagues for these awards, the nominees who provided important details for the process, and the members of the University of New Orleans Research Council who evaluated and ranked the nominations.  It is clear that we have excellent researchers at the University of New Orleans, as well as committed and appreciative colleagues to support and laud their accomplishments.

For most Board of Regents (BoR) programs, the indirect cost is limited to 25% of salary and fringe benefits. BoR specific templates for one year and up to three year proposals have been posted to the Proposal Development page of the Office of Research website. Indirect cost is calculated using BoR’s limit also calculated is UNO’s waived indirect cost. If the BoR program does not restrict the indirect cost rate, continue to use the regular budget templates. Contact your Research Administrator if you have questions.

Louisiana Sea Grant College Program seeks Statements of Interest for its next funding cycle, February 1, 2016 – January 31, 2018. Research projects within Louisiana coasts focused in three areas will be considered: 1) Healthy Coastal Ecosystems; 2) Resilient Communities and Economies; and 3) Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture. Statements of Interest are due February 6, 2015 at 5:00 PM CST. Please see the message below for full details.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a solicitation from the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program for Statements of Interest proposing two-year coastal research projects.  The Statement of Interest serves as a project pre-proposal that identifies a topic relevant to coastal and marine needs in Louisiana and the nation. It describes both the scope of the need, problem, or opportunity and how the results achieved would contribute to development, conservation, or utilization of coastal and marine resources. Statements allow for review of relevancy to Louisiana Sea Grant’s research priorities for this opportunity, as well as concepts, rationale, general approach, and expected outcomes and impacts before faculty must commit to providing a narrative of detailed methodology, literature review, and other requirements of a full proposal.

Research priority focus areas for this request for proposals (RFP) are: 1) Healthy Coastal Ecosystems and Habitats, 2) Resilient Communities and Economies, and 3) Sustainable Fisheries and Aquaculture. A complete explanation of these research priorities, as well as other pertinent information related to Statement of Interest preparation, submission, and review is included in the RFP at www.laseagrant.org/research/rfp/funding-proposal-info/

Louisiana Sea Grant will consider Statements of Interest for this opportunity with maximum budgets of $80,000/year for either one or two year projects.  Statements of Interest must be submitted to Ms. Katie Lea ( Room 238 Sea Grant Building, Louisiana State University, Baton Rouge, LA 70803 or klea@lsu.edu ) on or before 5:00 PM (CST) on February 6, 2015, without exception.

U.S. Department of Energy Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship Program (MLEF)

The Mickey Leland Energy Fellowship (MLEF) Program provides students with an opportunity to gain and develop research skills with the Department of Energy’s Office of Fossil Energy for 10 weeks over the summer. For 20 years, this program has increased awareness of DOE research opportunities to students pursuing STEM degrees (science, technology, engineering and math). The goal of the program is to improve opportunities for women and minority students in these fields, however all eligible candidates are encouraged to apply. Stipends start at $600 per week and eligible Fellows will receive an additional travel and housing allowance. For more information, visit http://orise.orau.gov/mlef/.

Eligibility

• Be at least 18 years of age at time of application;

• Be a U.S. Citizen;

• Have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0;

• Be currently enrolled full-time in an accredited college or university (sophomore year or higher) or had a Ph.D. conferred on or after January 2, 2014 in a science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) degree

Application closes Friday, January 2, 2015 – click http://orise.orau.gov/mlef/ to get started NOW!

Out of this world!

The University of New Orleans welcomed approximately 150 students from New Orleans area schools to campus on Thursday, to participate in Space Day 2014. The inaugural event was designed to introduce youngsters to the joys and challenges – and especially the important – of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) said Karen Thomas, associate dean of STEM outreach, recruitment, and retention in the College of Sciences.

Seventh and 8th graders from St. Augustine, Archbishop Rummel, Edward Hynes, Holy Cross, and Ursuline, came to UNO to enjoy hands-on activities based on a theme of another dimension: Space.

"It was a nice day," said Travis Mumphrey, 14, of Rummel. "We did a lot of activities. The space launch was one of my favorites."

For months, students, faculty and staff met weekly with representatives from the Boeing Company, NASA, Jacobs Technology and the National Center for Advanced Manufacturing (NCAM) to design the day focused on raising interest in STEM Studies, Thomas said. The Colleges of Science and Engineering and the University's Office of Research and Sponsored Programs coordinated the University's responsibilities. The results were out of this world.
