• The EIA should move toward using the NEMS as a basis for its Annual Energy Outlook and toward providing modeling support for energy policy analysis more generally.

  • The Secretary of Energy should designate the EIA Administrator as chief executive for implementation of the NEMS and make this assignment one of the performance requirements of the Administrator.

  • EIA should form a Users Advisory Group of likely NEMS users from within the DOE, other government, federal, state, and regional agencies, and private organizations.

  • DOE should capitalize on opportunities offered by the Federal Employees Pay Comparability Act of 1990 to attract and retain highly skilled staff for the development and operation of the NEMS.

  • The NEMS organization should have direct access to, and involvement with, the decision makers both within and outside DOE who are potential NEMS users.
