The file at the EEEL provides an evaluation of the Lab’s 4 divisions. The overview is predicated on 4 standards: alignment with nationwide priorities, motivation of its courses, technical advantage, and technical application caliber. The record additionally offers a glance at 3 extra issues: staffing and investment, foreign concerns, and the making plans technique.

There were numerous examples of excellent synergy among projects. However, there were also concerns about the demographics of the staff, particularly in the many areas that were considered essential and need to be continued even though technical staff is approaching or past retirement age. While the recent increase in and apparent high quality of associates holds promise for ultimately alleviating this problem, succession planning for the near future remains problematic. Staff morale appeared good.

The projects are well planned and backed by documentation on the short- and long-term goals, accomplishments, and expected impacts. In general, EEEL is providing excellent value at a reasonable cost. All the projects reviewed were providing value for the investment. The technical merit of the programs is generally excellent. S. technological infrastructure and metrological needs. As well, there is promise of significant advancement in emerging technologies. The resources of the laboratory are generally adequate.

In other words, there is some question about how the strategic plan is translated into action. A plan for how EEEL will interact with and utilize the CNST should be established. CNST is a large investment for NIST, and EEEL should be a large customer. There is an opportunity for an interaction between CNST and the EEEL work on localized materials properties measurements (permittivity and permeability). CNST may be able to provide submicron test structure fabrication, while EEEL can provide test structure design and measurement.
