Abstract : The Office of Science and Technology Policy asked the IDA Science and Technology Policy Institute (STPI) to collect information on the state of planning, prioritization, and assessment of facilities and infrastructure (F&I) at a set of Federal laboratories that conduct national security research and development. These laboratories referred to in this report as Federal security laboratories advance the state of science and technology for military purposes, civil defense, emergency preparedness, intelligence services, and nuclear stockpile maintenance. Aging and deteriorating F&I of Federal security laboratories threaten their ability to successfully complete their national security missions.
