ability of the laboratories to fulfill their mission. Chapter 4 provides an analysis of the relationships among the several players in the management of the labs—the NNSA, the site offices, the contractors, and the laboratory managers—and the effect of that relationship on the laboratories’ ability to carry out science and engineering research. Finally, Chapter 5 examines the framework for managing science and engineering research at the labs.
