The RDRC will consolidate the current RRC and DRC into a single program with a scope equivalent to the two current programs. These programs support ‘‘centers’’ at universities and other private research institutions. The centers organize experts from around the country to produce research on Social Security programs and related topics. Both programs consist of five-year agreements and both five-year cycles are set to end in FY 2018. RFAs for the current programs are archived at https:// www.ssa.gov/oag/grants/ssagrant_ archive.htm. This anticipated single program will address issues related to the SSI and RSDI programs. We intend to award five-year cooperative agreements to research centers of high merit that provide a comprehensive research program addressing issues in Social Security, retirement, and disability policy. This realignment in the research program will benefit the agency by increasing administrative efficiency and coordination. It may also provide greater flexibility for research centers; we will consider applications from research centers that provide both retirement and disability research as well as from smaller, specialized research centers (e.g., a center focused on issues relevant to the SSI program). For the anticipated RFA, the Grants Management Official (GMO) will use the policies in 2 CFR 200 in conjunction with the policies and procedures for solicitation, evaluation, and award prescribed in the Social Security Administration’s internal Grants Administration Manual. The project period for all cooperative agreements awarded will cover the timeframe of September 2018 through September 2023.
