priority science and discovery invest in science to achieve transformational discoveries

Clean, Secure Energy

Lower GHG emissions




National Security

Economic Prosperity

Priority: Science and Discovery: Invest in science to achieve transformational discoveries

New Administration!

  • Connect basic and applied sciences
  • Re-energize the national labs as centers of great science and innovation
  • Double the Office of Science budget
  • Embrace a degree of risk-taking in research
  • Create an effective mechanism to integrate national laboratory, university, and industry activities
office of science funding growing
Office of Science Funding Growing
  • FY 10 New Initiatives:
  • 46 Energy Frontier Research Centers - $100M
    • 1,800 researchers and students
    • Universities, national labs, industry, and non-profits
    • 1/3 will be supported by Recovery Act funding
  • ARPA-E - $10M FY10; $400M ARRA
    • Grants
    • Development of breakthrough energy technologies

Total FY 09 Funding $4.679 Billion

SC builds and operates some of the nation’s most advanced R&D user facilities at its labs


status of laboratory infrastructure
Status of Laboratory Infrastructure

Ten research laboratories with over 1,500 buildings and 20 million square feet of space.

Much of our infrastructure is old, expensive to maintain, and can no longer meet the requirements of a modern research facility. RPV of $9B

Improvements have been made – increased annual maintenance investment, focus on reducing deferred maintenance.

An integrated approach is needed, including

Capital Investment

SC funded Modernization Initiative

Increased IGPP funded by labs

Elimination of Excess Facilities


Typical Lab




Rusty water



No sprinklers

Maintenance alone will not ensure our laboratories

can continue to fulfill their missions.

mission readiness assessment process identifies gaps and investment needs and plans
Mission Readiness Assessment Process Identifies Gaps and Investment Needs and Plans

Labs assess state of facilities and infrastructure, now and in the future.

    • Not capable, Marginally Capable, Partially Capable, Capable
  • Capability gaps are identified, and translated into an action plan.
    • Laboratory investments include IGPP, deferred maintenance reduction. funds, maintenance funds, and non-capitalized alterations.
    • DOE investments include SLI line items, and programmatic GPP.
  • An evaluation of support facilities is also prepared.

SC Laboratories


Focus facilities and infrastructure metrics to match SC strategic goals

  • FY 2009 planning guidance aligned with mission readiness concept
  • Initiate SC laboratory implementation of Mission Readiness Assessment Process
  • Communicate: OECM, OMB, Congress
  • Implement FY 2009 facilities and infrastructure contract performance measures (FY 2009 PEMP)
  • Issue FY 2010 planning guidance based on feedback and lessons learned
  • Developed lab plans that include integration of science mission and infrastructure
  • Initiate implementation of Mission Readiness Assessment Process
  • Implement 4 peer reviews in FY 2009 (ORNL, PNNL, LBNL and BNL)
  • Complete remaining 6 labs by FY11
  • Develop lessons learned and implement improvements
  • Continue to ensure that FIMS is populated with key data (Maintenance, RPV, Deferred maint)


sc modernization initiative
SC Modernization Initiative
  • Includes more than 30 prospective projects at our 10 major laboratories totaling over $2 billion.
  • Projects replace and rehab/renovate existing buildings and infrastructure
  • Completion is expected to take 10 years but will depend on budget availability for the ramp up to the needed annual funidng level of $200M a year.
  • When completed, the Initiative will have improved each laboratory’s ability to fully support the missions of the Office of Science
  • The initiative is will eliminate more than $200 million of deferred maintenance, construct nearly 2 million square feet of modern building space, eliminate over 1.5 million square feet of obsolete building space, and renovate more than 1 million square feet of space. (These are current estimates.)
ongoing projects in the initiative
Ongoing Projects in the Initiative

Interdisciplinary Science Building, Ph I, BNL

TPC: $61.8M - $66.8M

Demolition of inadequate facilities and construction of

a new building with state-of-the-art laboratories,

associated offices and support space.

Modernization of Laboratory Facilities, ORNL

TPC: $96.3M

Construction of a new chemical sciences, materials science

and technology core capabilities laboratory that will allow

researchers to move from the 4500 Complex. Construction

start currently forecasted in 4Q FY 2009.



Technology and Engineering Development Facility, TJNAF

TPC: $67M - $73.2M

Renovation of the Test Lab Building and construction of new space that

will eliminate severe overcrowding and improve workflow and

productivity. Also eliminates inadequate work space in and near the Test



*Baseline has not yet been established.

ongoing projects in the initiative continued
Ongoing Projects in the Initiative (continued)

Building 74 (Life Sciences)

Seismic Life-Safety & Modernization of

General Purpose Buildings Ph 2, LBNL

TPC: $94.38M - $97.08M

Replacement of seismically “very poor” and “poor”

facilities with a new laboratory/office building, upgrade

of the Hazardous Waste Handling Facility, and

modernization of another laboratory/office building

(Bldg 74, Life Sciences).

Building 85 (Hazardous Waste Handling Facility)


Rendering of new General Purpose Laboratory

projects in the fy 2010 budget request
Projects in the FY 2010 Budget Request

Research Support Building and Infrastructure Modernization, SLAC

Preliminary TPC Range: $81M - $97.4M

This project will integrate the lab’s Accelerator Physics community across

programmatic boundaries, and will provide more uniform service

(training, ES&H, business services) for the lab-wide user community.

Project scope includes the construction of a modern office building for

technical staff currently dispersed throughout the site in aged trailers and

other inefficient locations and modernization of three facilities for

operations staff supporting the research mission.

Renovate Science Labs 2, BNL

Preliminary TPC Range: $45.8M - $50.8M

This project will upgrade and rehabilitate obsolete

systems in Buildings 510 (Physics) and 555

(Chemistry). Although the basic core and shell

construction of these buildings is sound, the lab

and office spaces, and their utilities and

environmental support systems are obsolete.

Energy Sciences Building, ANL

Preliminary TPC Range: $85.5M - $96M

Scope includes construction of a new multidisciplinary Energy

Sciences Building that will provide efficient and modern research

space that will provide the interdisciplinary science platform

needed to discover and develop alternative approaches to

energy production, storage and utilization.


  • The Office of Science is integrating infrastructure management with the SC mission.
  • The Mission Readiness Assessment Process ties investments to SC’s missions and is fully integrated with Annual Lab Planning.
  • The Infrastructure Modernization Initiative will improve condition and mission readiness of the SC labs.
  • We are on track to meet the Sustainability Goals.
  • End result: Modern, safe, and environmentally-friendly infrastructure that allows the laboratories to pursue transformational discoveries.
