Title: SRNL 2017 LDRD Annual Report

Abstract

Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 marked the twelfth year of Savannah River National Laboratory’s (SRNL’s) Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) program and the largest year to date. When the program began in FY06, just two years after SRNL becoming the DOE’s 17th national lab, it began with a modest authorized collection rate of just under 1.5%. It grew from there each year, reaching 4% in FY11. FY17 marked the first increase in the authorized collection rate since FY11, increasing from 4% to 5%. This increase highlights the value placed on this important program, which provides the discretionary funding needed to develop ideas for future program- matic growth in our key business areas of environmental stewardship, national security, nuclear materials management, and secure energy manufacturing, as well as develop and maintain our core competencies. The LDRD program leverages the unique capabilities of SRNL to yield foundational scientific research and development (R&D) essential to our core business areas, while aligning optimally and continuously with SRNL’s Strategic Plan and providing long-term benefits to DOE and the National Nuclear Security Administration (NNSA), other customers, and stakeholders. As can be seen in the “By the Numbers” summary, this program also plays an important role inmore » sustaining staff excellence with high participation by students, post-docs, and early-career staff. Over 75% of the projects in FY17 included contributions from early-career or post-doctoral staff.« less
