This memorandum transmits the comments of the SEAB Task Force on DOE National  Laboratories on the recently released report of the Committee on Assessment of the Governance Structure of the NNSA National Security, entitled Aligning the Governance Structure of the NNSA Laboratories to Meet 21st Century National Security Challenges. That committee, chaired by Richard A. Meserve, was formed by the National Research Council in response to the FY2013 National Defense Authorization Act which directed the Administrator of the NNSA to “commission an independent assessment regarding the transition of the NNSA laboratories to multiagency, federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) with direct sustainment and sponsorship by multiple national security agencies.”

Richard A. Meserve, chair of the NAS committee and member of SEAB wrote a separate letter regarding the SEAB memorandum.
