This publication summarizes, for potential contractors and other interested parties, the proposed research and development contract projects programmed by the Department of Energy for Fiscal Year 1979 under its Coal Mining Research and Development Activity. The objective of these projects is to provide an ordered and sequenced series of advances toward the overall goal of providing the system technology required to assure the availability of abundant supplies of coal at acceptable social and economic cost. It is the policy of the Department of Energy to utilize as fully as possible the capabilities of the private sector in mining research, and to that end this paper outlines the Department's present contract research needs to enable potential contractors to make decisions about participation in the program. It is important to realize that this is a summary document: the project descriptions do not necessarily imply total package procurement. The projects presented are subject to change based on revised priorities and availability of funds. Contracting for the Coal Mining Research and Development Activity will be conducted in strict accordance with federal procurement regulations. Availability of requests for proposal (RFP's) will be formally advertised in the Commerce Business Daily. No additional information will be supplied until after the RFP's are made available and then only in accordance with prescribed procedures.
