Government Accountability Integrity Reliability Office Collection

Excerpt: By law, when DOE conducts R&D for other federal agencies and uses a laboratory contractor to carry out the tasks, DOE must recover from the other agency all costs, including LDRD, DOE owes its contractor in performing the work. -- DOE has issued a departmental order and clarifying memoranda and guidance to ensure LDRD program compliance with statutory requirements and congressional direction. For example, the Secretary of Energy?s April 2002 guidance requires that agencies funding work at its laboratories be notified about the LDRD program, including the laboratory?s indirect-cost rate and an estimate of the associated cost. According to senior budget, legal, and research program officials at six federal agencies that fund work at the DOE laboratories, inclusion of funding for the LDRD program as an indirect cost does not limit their agency?s ability to comply with statutory or appropriations requirements. -- Managers at the four DOE laboratories that primarily conduct nuclear weapons and environmental management R&D told us that LDRD is vital for recruiting and retaining top scientists, while managers at the five Office of Science laboratories said that LDRD plays an important, but less vital, role in recruiting and retaining top scientists. -- From fiscal year 1998 through fiscal year 2003, DOE?s contractoroperated laboratories spent a total of $1.8 billion, or an average of $296 million per year, on LDRD. DOE accounted for 84 percent and the Department of Defense and the intelligence agencies, through their payments to DOE, accounted for 12 percent of the federal support for the LDRD program in fiscal year 2003.
