The Department also has four strategic goals toward achieving its mission. (1)Defense - Protect national security by applying advanced science and nuclear technology to the Nation's defense. (2) Energy - Protect our national and economic security by promoting a diverse supply and delivery of reliable, affordable, and environmentally sound energy. (3)Science - Protect our national and economic security by providing world-class scientific research capacity and advancing scientific knowledge. (4) Environment - Protect the environment by providing a responsible resolution to the environmental legacy of the Cold War and by providing for the permanent disposal of the Nation's high-level radioactive waste. The committee ensures that BER supports a balanced and state-of-the-art research portfolio of research projects that contribute to all aspects of the DOE mission: climate and environmental research impacts the energy, environmental and science strategic goals; genomic sciences research impacts the energy, science, and environmental strategic goals; and radiochemistry and instrumentation research impacts the science strategic goal; low dose radiation research impacts all four strategic goals. e1e13292-0008-42a0-b6a0-534964972b9b Recommandations Not Available 8523a765-f4b6-4fc4-9fca-2a0883f9f87b Make, Accept, Implement ad0512b4-6078-4036-ae0d-7990f04dffaa cef8d87f-d891-4552-b5bc-11be18cbde6a Recommendations Made Number Biological and Environmental Research Advisory Committee Department of Energy Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 Since January 2006, 19 reports have been issued covering all aspects of user facilities, research, planning, and program management for the Office of Biological and Environmental Research. These reports contain more than 250 separate and distinct recommendations with individual reports having as few as five and as many as fifty recommendations. 0 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 9bbc6b06-69c1-4a9d-95a4-54e835df9c3d Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage Biological and Environmental Research 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 recommentations have been evaluated and considered and an estimated 85% or more have been implemented. It should be noted that some recommendations (approximately 5%) are either financially or administratively impractical or impossible to fully implement. 85 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 1d8da15d-c196-440a-b336-229134f8ab51 Recommendations Partially Accepted Percentage Biological and Environmental Research 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 attmept 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 administratively impractical or impossible to fully implement. 10 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.)
