It is time for Jefferson Lab to embark on a new phase of life as a national laboratory -- a new phase in which we expand our view and ambition toward a broader role within the Department of Energy’s science mission. While we maintain a focus on fundamental nuclear science, we have an opportunity and a duty to seek even greater impact in scientific discovery, technology development, regional and national priorities. With that in mind, it is time to plan for the Jefferson Lab of the Future.
The Laboratory Budget and Program Support Office is responsible for lab-wide and division budget development, tracking, and providing budget forecasts. The Office also submits the Biennial Budget to the State of Virginia and the Annual Budget to the Department of Energy.
Vision: Partnering with our customers, we provide support to further the laboratory's mission to operate a world class user facility for conducting nuclear physics research. Our focus is to provide project management and integrated planning support across the Lab that is aligned with Lab goals, objectives and guidance.
Jefferson Lab is a Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) which is maintained and operating by JSA under our contract with the Department of Energy (DOE). Key sections of the prime JSA/DOE Contract, which lab personnel may need to refer to from time to time, are found below and will be updated as significant changes in the contract occur:
The Chief Planning Officer coordinates and manages the allocation of laboratory resources and budgets across the divisions, including internally and externally funded projects, and facilitates development of the laboratory’s operations and research budgets with the Department of Energy’s Office of Nuclear Physics.
