The budget cycle
The Budget Cycle

2. Agencies prepare and submit

proposed budgets

to OMB

1. OSTP & OMB issue guidance

memorandum on R&D priorities

3. Passback, negotiations, & appeals between agencies and EOP

9. Agencies make decisions on allocation of resources consistent with enacted appropriations and program plans

4. President makes final decisions and sends Budget Request to Congress

5. Congress reviews, considers, & approves overall Budget Request

8. President signs or vetoes appropriations bills

7. Congress marks up & passes agency appropriations bills

6. Appropriations hearings with agencies & EOP on individual programs

AAAC Meeting: October 13, 2006

AAAC Meeting: October 13, 2006


Interagency working group on the physics of the universe
Interagency Working Group on the Physics of the Universe

  • Originally established to formulate an implementation plan for the opportunities identified in the 2002 NRC report Connecting Quarks with the Cosmos: Eleven Science Questions for the New Century

  • Report released in February 2004

AAAC Meeting: October 13, 2006

Setting Priorities

Step 1: Prioritize the Questions

  • The IWG based its prioritization of the eleven questions upon an assessment of each question’s fit to the following criteria:

  • Current potential for scientific advancement

  • The timeliness or urgency of each question

  • The technical readiness of projects necessary to advance the science of each question

  • Existence of gaps in the overall suite of projects addressing the question

Step 2: Identify Potential Activities

Step 3: Group Related Elements

Where are we now?

AAAC Meeting: October 13, 2006


Interagency working group on the physics of the universe4
Interagency Working Group on the Physics of the Universe

  • IWG re-established and had first meeting March 22, 2006

  • Co-chairs: Robin Staffin (DoE-SC), Joe Dehmer (NSF-PHY), Eric Smith (NASA-SMD)

  • Will report on progress made towards interagency coordination on items discussed in the PoU report.

  • Interagency Task Force on High Energy Density Physics under the auspices of the PoU IWG

  • Dark energy

  • Interagency Lessons-Learned Task Force: an ad-hoc task force under the auspices of the PoU IWG

AAAC Meeting: October 13, 2006


Physics of the universe iwg nasa s beyond einstein program
Physics of the Universe IWGNASA’s Beyond Einstein Program

  • PoU report endorsed (among other things)

    • NASA/DoE Joint Dark Energy Mission

    • LISA, and Constellation-X “part of a powerful and complementary suite of tools aimed at the discovery of gravitational waves and exploration of the physics of strong gravitational fields around black holes.”

  • NRC study will assess each of the BE missions (Con-X, LISA, JDEM, a black hole finder, and an inflationary probe) for scientific impact, technological readiness, management plans, and cost estimates.

    • Recommend which mission should go first and R&D investment strategy for subsequent missions.

    • Inform the next Decadal Survey on ordering the remaining BE missions.

    • Report scheduled for release in September 2007 to inform FY09 budget process.

AAAC Meeting: October 13, 2006


Task force on high energy density physics
Task Force on High Energy Density Physics

  • 2003 NRC/Davidson report: Frontiers in High Energy Density Physics: The X-Games of Contemporary Science

    • Identify the scientific opportunities and establish a unifying theme for the field

    • “The need for a broad, multi-agency approach to support the field of HEDP”

    • “It is recommended that federal interagency collaborations be strengthened in fostering high energy density basic science. Such program collaborations are important for fostering the basic science base, without the constraints imposed by the mission orientation of many of the Department of Energy’s high energy density programs.”

AAAC Meeting: October 13, 2006


Task force on high energy density physics1
Task Force on High Energy Density Physics

  • 2004 NSTC/Davidson report: Frontiers for Discovery in High Energy Density Physics

    • Chartered by Interagency Working Group on the Physics of the Universe

    • Summarize research opportunities and identify opportunities for interagency coordination

    • Identified 15 thrust areas in

      • Astrophysical systems

      • Beam-induced HEDP

      • Stockpile stewardship facilities

      • Ultrafast, ultraintense laser science

    • “Interagency cooperation is particularly important for rapid scientific progress in this quintessentially interdisciplinary area.”

  • HEDP TF convened under PoU IWG to establish a plan to coordinate the multidisciplinary activities across agency boundaries

  • Draft report outlining a Federal coordination plan in progress
