Description

DOE has for years made certain designated research facilities available to universities, industry, and other research organizations.

Today, DOE user facilities fall into one of three categories: designated user facilities, other user resources, and Technology Deployment Center/User Facilities. Objective of this audit was to determine whether user facility agreements were priced for full cost recovery, user facility agreement collections were properly deposited, and financial assistance provided to visiting researchers was allowable and reasonable.

Description

DOE has for years made certain designated research facilities available to universities, industry, and other research organizations. Due to technology transfer efforts and excess capacities, even more facilities, such as defense program facilities, are being made available to outside users. Today, DOE user facilities fall into one of three categories: designated user facilities, other user resources, and Technology Deployment Center/User Facilities. Objective of this audit was to determine whether user facility agreements were priced for full cost recovery, user facility agreement collections were properly deposited, and financial assistance provided to visiting researchers was allowable and reasonable. The audit found that DOE priced Technology Deployment Center/User Facility and designated user facility agreements in accordance with DOE policies. However, other user facility agreements were not always priced to ensure full cost recovery, and collections were not always properly deposited. At one designated user facility, visiting researchers were provided with financial and housing assistance that is questionable as being allowable.
