BESAC's recommendations include advice on establishing research and facilities priorities; determining proper program balance among disciplines; and identifying opportunities for interlaboratory collaboration, program integration, and industrial participation. The Committee primarily includes representatives of universities, national laboratories, and industries involved in energy-related scientific research. Particular attention is paid to obtaining a diverse membership with a balance of disciplines, interests, experiences, points of view, and geography. dae928c0-881f-4c11-99a9-6292ff5d82a8 Recommandations Not Available 420d7da9-436f-4f7b-831e-52efe302adac Make, Accept, Implement 7d3534dc-2dc8-41b0-8393-ddfbf36b0898 c622bb11-5f43-4e3f-9c94-d4c2f4d7c868 Recommendations Made Number Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee Department of Energy Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 Since September, 1986, 61 reports have been issued covering all aspects of user facilities, reserach, planning, and program management for the Office of Basic Energy Sciences. These reports contain more than 500 separate and distanct recommendations with individual reports as few as five and as many as fifty recommendations The recommendations of the Committee vary from well-defined scientific recommendations to extremely general programmatic recommnedations. 0 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 c6b0f9c3-99a5-45fa-82a8-d8f477fbc55f Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee Department of Energy For a variety of its own reasons not applicable to the Committee, the agency may implement all/most of the recommendations, but few times recommendations are not implemented. n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 All separate and distinct recommendations have been evaluated and considered and an estimated 75% or more have been implemented. It should be noted that some recommendations are either financially or adminstatively impractical or impossible to fully implement. 75 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 5e7f2b48-e74d-4869-87f8-9a717f9df7ec Recommendations Partially Accepted Percentage Basic Energy Sciences Advisory Committee Department of Energy There are sometimes a few proposals which were not funded in their entirety, those few being scaled back from their original level of requested funding (allowable under the program). n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 An attempt is always made to at least partially implement those recommendations that are not or cannot be fully implemented. A small fraction, estimated at 5% or less, of individual recommendations are not implemented. As noted above, some recommendations are either financially or administrtively impractical or impossible to fully implement. 25 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2013-07-09 http://explore.data.gov/resource/datasets/c5i3-bb9j Gannon (J.)
