The quality of the staff is generally excellent, but the manpower expended on almost all projects was no more than minimal. This report also details a number of concerns about sustainability of activities, staffing, and the planning process and suggests new directions in research within the existing EEEL organization.

While it has been identified as one of the mandated programs in EEEL, the project is supported mostly by the Office of Microelectronic Programs. A shift toward more core support would be desirable. Facilities control in Boulder is still a major issue. There are too few federal personnel on site to maintain the infrastructure, so contractors are used to fix and repair everything within the buildings. This means there is no continuity—that is, the legacy of construction of any given laboratory is lost when contractors are changed.

The recent strategic planning efforts should result in a long-term plan detailing how and in which disciplinary areas these issues can be addressed. S. competitiveness. They noted that the 2008 national priorities4 document supports this finding. As one example, the measurements services and antenna calibration work at EEEL are recognized as the gold standard for calibration of these types of measurements and are central to the NIST mission. The EEEL personnel performing this activity have been hosting their counterparts from Korea to assist them in duplicating this critical capability in their national measurement facility.
