Applications are temporarily on hold for RFTS 7 as we enact a few minor updates to the application portal. We expect to make applications live again by June 1, 2022. As a result of this temporary suspension, we are extending the deadline for RFTS 7 an additional month, to July 16, 2022.

In the meantime you can still reach out to facilities to discuss your requests for technical support so you are ready to submit applications as soon as the application portal re-opens.

Request for Technical Support (RFTS) Application

You may submit TEAMER applications at any time however they will be reviewed on a quarterly basis following the schedule below. Applications submitted after the due date will be considered for the next RFTS. All TEAMER support activities should take place within a 9-month access period.

  • RFTS 7 - Applications due by July 16, 2022
    • Access Period: Oct 2022 – July 2023
  • RFTS 8 - Applications due by October 14, 2022
    • Access Period: January 2023 – October 2023

All applicants are required to have consulted with a pre-approved TEAMER Test Facility prior to submitting an application. Within the application, you will be required to provide the name and email address for the person with whom you consulted, as the TEAMER Network Director will request a Letter of Response from the facility to ensure those conversations have taken place and that the proposed project is aligned with their facility’s capabilities.
