Conclusions

CSTL is meeting its obligations, and its priorities are appropriate and aligned with national priorities. The technical merit of the laboratory and the commitment of the staff are high. There is no evidence that any programs are jeopardized by a lack of facilities or equipment. Future assessments will be facilitated if greater emphasis is placed on clarifying the distinctions between work performed to provide services and work performed to support research and development.

Against this backdrop of clear and consistent success and high technical merit, the panel makes several suggestions for improving the operation of the Laboratory (see Summary).
