RMA may request documents from applicants to verify eligibility requirements, proof of existence, or authority.

  • Individuals are not eligible applicants.
  • Although an applicant may be eligible to compete for an award based on its status as an eligible entity, other factors may exclude an applicant from receiving Federal assistance under this program governed by Federal law and regulations (e.g., debarment and suspension; a determination of non-performance on a prior contract, cooperative partnership agreement; or a determination of a violation of applicable ethical standards).
