NATIONAL BUREAU OF STANDARDS
The National Bureau of Standards' was established by an act of Congress on March 3, 1901.
The Bureau's overall goal is to strengthen and advance the Nation's science and technology
and facilitate their effective application for public benefit. To this end, the Bureau conducts
research and provides: (1) a basis for the Nation's physical measurement system, (2) scientific
and technological services for industry and government, (3) a technical basis for equity in
trade, and (4) technical services to promote public safety. The Bureau's technical work is per-
formed by the National Measurement Laboratory, the National Engineering Laboratory, and
the Institute for Computer Sciences and Technology.
THE NATIONAL MEASUREMENT LABORATORY provides the national system of
physical and chemical and materials measurement; coordinates the system with measurement
systems of other nations and furnishes essential services leading to accurate and uniform
physical and chemical measurement throughout the Nation's scientific community, industry,
and commerce; conducts materials research leading to improved methods of measurement,
standards, and data on the properties of materials needed by industry, commerce, educational
institutions, and Government; provides advisory and research services to other Government
agencies; develops, produces, and distributes Standard Reference Materials; and provides
calibration services. The Laboratory consists of the following centers:
Absolute Physical Quantities2 -- Radiation Research - Chemical Physics -
Analytical Chemistry - Materials Science
THE NATIONAL ENGINEERING LABORATORY provides technology and technical ser-
vices to the public and private sectors to address national needs and to solve national
problems; conducts research in engineering and applied science in support of these efforts;
builds and maintains competence in the necessary disciplines required to carry out this
research and technical service; develops engineering data and measurement capabilities;
provides engineering measurement traceability services; develops test methods and proposes
engineering standards and code changes; develops and proposes new engineering practices;
and develops and improves mechanisms to transfer results of its research to the ultimate user.
The Laboratory consists of the following centers:
Applied Mathematics - Electronics and Electrical Engineering2 - Manufacturing
Engineering - Building Technology - Fire Research - Chemical Engineering2
THE INSTITUTE FOR COMPUTER SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGY conducts
research and provides scientific and technical services to aid Federal agencies in the selection,
acquisition, application, and use of computer technology to improve effectiveness and
economy in Government operations in accordance with Public Law 89-306 (40 U.S.C. 759),
relevant Executive Orders, and other directives; carries out this mission by managing the
Federal Information Processing Standards Program, developing Federal ADP standards
guidelines, and managing Federal participation in ADP voluntary standardization activities;
provides scientific and technological advisory services and assistance to Federal agencies; and
provides the technical foundation for computer-related policies of the Federal Government.
The Institute consists of the following centers:
Programming Science and Technology- Computer Systems Engineering.
'Headquarters and Laboratories at Gaithersburg, MD, unless otherwise noted;
mailing address Washington, DC 20234.
2Some divisions within the center are located at Boulder, CO 80303.
