Formally, these Reports respond to the Conference Report (H.R. Rep. No. 106-988 (Conf. Rep.)) accompanying the Fiscal Year (FY) 2001 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, which requested the DOE Chief Financial Officer “develop and execute a financial accounting report of LDRD expenditures by laboratory and weapons production plant.” They also respond to the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 1997 (Pub.
