Criteria for selecting proposals...

There are two elements that every private sector proposal must contain in order to be considered for funding under the Program: 1. Cost-share. This is the amount of funding U.S. private organizations are willing to commit from their own resources along with those of the Program to seek export business in an emerging market. No proposal will be considered without the element of cost-sharing, regardless of the underlying value of a proposal (the Emerging Markets Program complements, not supplants, export efforts of the U.S. private sector). A minimum or maximum amount of cost share is not specified. Rather, the degree of commitment to a proposed project represented by the percentage and type of private funding is a critical factor in determining which proposals will be funded under the Program. The type of cost-sharing is also not specified. It may be professional time of staff assigned to the project, or actual cash investment. Cost-sharing is not needed for government proposals, but it is required from private organizations who are party to a joint government/private proposal. 2. Justification for Federal Funding. What other sources of funding might be available? Why is funding from the Program required? What specifically could not be accomplished if funding were not provided?
