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. L. No. 104-201), which requires submission each year of “a report on the funds expended during the preceding fiscal year on [LDRD] activities […] to permit an assessment of the extent to which such activities support the national security mission of the Department of Energy.” Further, these Reports addresses the requirement in the Conference Report (H.R. Rep. No. 107-258 (Conf. Rep.)) accompanying the FY 2002 Energy and Water Development Appropriations Act, which requests the Secretary of Energy include in the annual Report to Congress on LDRD expenditures “an affirmation that all LDRD activities derived from funds of other agencies have been conducted in a manner that support science and technology development that benefits the programs of the sponsoring agencies and is consistent with the Appropriations Acts that provided funds to those agencies.”
