nuclear power-all central to DOE's mission.
Similarly, understanding the long-term impact of
energy usage on the climate is a Departmental
responsibility. In the biosciences, where DOE has
a lead role in mapping the human genome, the
nation faces comparably important challenges
that require the special multidisciplinary capabili-
ties and milestone-driven character of Livermore.
In many of these areas, we are involved in
collaborations as the means to accomplish our
goals, an expansion of the original E.O. Lawrence
model of team science. Increasingly, our DOE
programs are conducted in multilaboratory
partnerships, ranging from national security to the
basic sciences. Our many collaborations with
academia include efforts that are leading to
important discoveries in disciplines such as
astrophysics and activities that will underpin
scientific capabilities needed for our national
security programs. We are excited about the
growth of major partnerships with industry, such
as interactions with computer manufacturers,

commercialization of the use of lasers to enrich
uranium for reactors, and the pursuit of lithogra-
phy technologies needed to produce the next
generation of computer chips. Over the next
several years, we will gain considerable experi-
ence operating in the complex partnerships that
now characterize our work with other laboratories,
industry, and universities-and better understand
how to design such relationships for the future.
Success in Livermore's technical programs
depends on safe and environmentally sound
operations, with safety continuing to be the
cornerstone of our operational philosophy. In all
of our operations, we are benefiting from the
performance-based management approach, which
is fostering a close working relationship among
Livermore, the University of California, and the
DOE. On the business side, we've redesigned our
financial system and implemented a major cost-
cutting initiative. The Laboratory also conducted
an extensive evaluation of human resource issues,
which we are using as a basis for steps designed
to enhance career opportunities, ensure a better
