Requirements for Contracts, Grants and Cooperative Research and Development Agreements
In keeping with the National Environmental Policy Act, the USAMRMC examines all medical research, development
and acquisition projects for their potential environmental impacts.
Offerers notified that their proposal is being considered for an award must submit a Certificate of Environmental
Compliance in conformance with the format established in Appendix 8 of the
USAMRAA BAA 99-1.
Although most research conducted in established laboratories are exempt from the requirements of NEPA, there are exceptions (see
Environmental Analysis of Army Actions (AR 200-2)). If an exception arises (e.g. research in BSL-3
or 4 laboratories), an Environmental Assessment or Environmental Impact Statement may be required.
