Opportunity: Request for Information on Improving Cybersecurity Posture of Rural and Municipal Utilities


Request for Information on Improving Cybersecurity Posture of Rural and Municipal Utilities The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) Office of Cybersecurity, Energy Security, and Emergency Response is requesting public input to inform DOE’s implementation of the Rural and Municipal Utility Advanced Cybersecurity Grant and Technical Assistance (RMUC) Program, Section 40124 of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act (IIJA), also commonly known as the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL). The goal of the RMUC Program is to enhance the security posture of rural, municipal, and small investor-owned electric utilities through investments in operational capabilities, services, technology deployments, and increased participation in threat intelligence information sharing programs. The intent of this RFI is to obtain public input to inform the scope and priorities of the RMUC Program, and to enable DOE to design opportunities that improve an eligible utility’s cybersecurity posture. Information collected from this RFI may be used by DOE for planning purposes, which could include developing future Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOA), Broad Agency Announcements, or other solicitations related to implementation of the RMUC Program. This is solely a request for information and not a funding opportunity. DOE is not accepting applications for funding. The purpose of Amendment 000001 is to correct the submission hyperlink in the document.
