Program Announcement

Thank you for your interest in the "Program Announcement to Support Building a Network of Partners" for the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP). The deadline for submitting proposals was Nov. 12, 2003. We are no longer accepting proposals for this phase of NDIIPP.

Program announcements for other phases of NDIIPP will be issued as appropriate and will be posted to this Web site. The Library has not yet determined when other program announcements will be made.

This “Program Announcement to Support Building a Network of Partners” represents the beginning of the next phase of the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program (NDIIPP).

In December 2002, the U.S. Congress approved NDIIPP’s “Preserving Our Digital Heritage: Plan for the National Digital Information Infrastructure and Preservation Program,” making it possible for the Library to proceed with the work of developing an infrastructure for the collection and preservation of digital materials.

The NDIIPP plan outlines three broad categories of investment projects:

  • Practical applications and models,

  • The digital preservation technical architecture and,

  • Basic digital preservation research.

This program announcement is for projects that focus on the first investment category. Other announcements may follow.

NDIIPP is a nationwide initiative being led by the Library of Congress. The Library has a strong interest in forming partnerships with a wide range of stakeholders as it works to develop a network of committed organizations and institutions, with defined roles and responsibilities, in the collection and preservation of significant digital materials.

Under this announcement, awards of between $500,000 and $3 million will be made for periods of performance of one to three years. A resource contribution on the part of the applicant is required, as detailed in the announcement. The announcement also outlines information on eligibility for awards and cost-sharing requirements is also outlined, as well as procedures for submitting applications.

Those submitting applications under this announcement are encouraged to become familiar with the NDIIPP Plan.

The Library expects to post answers to frequently asked questions during the term of this announcement. Applicants are encouraged to check back frequently for responses to these queries. These will be posted under Frequently Asked Questions.

All applications must be postmarked by Nov. 12, 2003, to receive consideration. Click here to go to the text of the program announcement.
