ROSES 2013 Clarifications, corrections and amendments Amendment 19: Appendix C.18, PPR will not be solicited in ROSES-13

Description: This Amendment removes Appendix C.18, the Planetary Protection Research Program, from ROSES-13. It will appear in Tables two and three of ROSES-13 as "Not solicited this year."

Planetary protection involves preventing biological contamination on both outbound and sample return missions to other planetary bodies. When the ROSES-2013 omnibus solicitation was released in February, Appendix C.18, the Planetary Protection Research Program (PPRP) due dates were listed as "TBD." We regret to inform proposers that PPRP will not be solicited in ROSES-13. The impacts of sequestration in the current fiscal year and lowered future planning budgets don't leave enough funds to support both existing and future investigations in FY 2014. Appendix C.18 will appear in Tables two and three of ROSES-13 as "Not solicited this year."

Questions concerning Appendix C.18, the Planetary Protection Research Program, may be directed to Cassie Conley at cassie.conley@nasa.gov
