NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery Since 1974

The NERSC Allocation Request Form (ERCAP)

DOE Funding Tab

Is this project funded by the DOE Office of Science?

Select either "Yes" or "No."

If you chose "Yes"

  1. Answer the question: Who is your DOE Program Manager? This is the DOE person or people who administer your DOE Office of Science grant. They are not Lab LDRD managers.
  2. List all relevant DOE Office of Science (DOE SC) grant numbers that apply to this project.
  3. If NERSC resources are being used to support research funded by another agency (not DOE SC), list the funding agencies and grant numbers.

If you chose "No"

  1. List all relevant grants that are supporting your project. Include both the grant number and the name of the funding agency in the appropriate box:
    • DOE, other than Office of Science: grants supported by areas of DOE outside the Office of Science (e.g. Office of Nuclear Energy, Science, and Technology; Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy). Lab LDRD support can be listed here as well.
    • Work for others at DOE laboratory: the PI is located at a DOE laboratory but receives funding from outside of DOE SC.
    • Other funding agencies: e.g. NASA, NSF, NOAA
  2. Describe your project's relevance to the mission of the DOE Office you selected in question 9. See Eligibility and DOE Mission.  PLEASE NOTE: The purpose of this section is NOT to state how important your project is; that happens in the Project Description Tab.  The purpose of this section is to state how the goals of your project overlap with or align with the mission of DOE Office of Science.  Your startup request will be evaluated partly on the basis of alignment with a DOE office mission.  Find one of the mission statements and give just two or three sentences stating how and why your work is related to it.

National Security Questions

Does this project intend to make use of any information (software or data) subject to the following legal controls on use?

  • Classified or controlled military or defense information
  • Export controlled or ITAR (International Traffic in Arms Regulations) information
  • Personally identifiable information
  • Protected health information
  • Proprietary information

Select either "Yes" or "No." If you select Yes NERSC will contact you to get more information.

2014 requests only: Do your applications or data have a direct military or defense end-use application, or is your work potentially subject to International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) or similar restrictions?

Select either "Yes" or "No."

NERSC does not support projects intended for military or defense use.

Usage Monitoring Questions

If this project is given a NERSC award, I agree to monitor the usage associated with it to ensure that, to the best of my ability to determine, usage is for the project described here.

Select either "Yes" or "No."

For continuing projects: I have audited the MPP and/or HPSS usage associated with this project, and to the best of my ability to determine, all usage was for the project specified.

Select either "Yes", "No", or "N/A".

If this is a new project, you don't have to answer this question.
