The home of the U.S. Department of Energy's Scientific and Technical Information Program (STIP)

Here you will find background, guidance, and more to ensure that DOE-funded STI is appropriately managed and preserved to support scientific research now and in the future.

STI Program Representatives

Department of Energy and departmental laboratories have designated representatives to serve as technical information officers (TIOs) and STI Managers in the DOE Scientific and Technical Information Program (STIP). 

STI Managers 

The role of STI Managers is to stay abreast of the requirements of DOE’s STI Program and coordinate the implementation of STIP related requirements. They serve as the main STIP POC for their respective site/facility participating in various DOE STIP activities.  Normally, one STI Manager is appointed at each contractor site.  While roles and responsibilities may vary from site to site, depending on the specific language of DOE contracts, the STI activities of STI Managers generally are the same…see more

Technical Information Officers

Technical Information Officers (TIO) serve as the principal DOE Office POC and assistant to, and liaison with, the DOE Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI) that serves as the Department’s office charged with the Scientific and Technical Information Program (STIP). The TIOs are to be familiar with the STI Programs within their DOE Office (given they have contracting financial assistance and/or acquisition activities) and for their major site/facility management contractor(s) STI Program to discern compliance with the DOE O 241.1B. They must maintain an up-to-date knowledge-base of the STI Program activities and provide timely feedback on issues as they emerge. While roles and responsibilities may differ, each major DOE element shall designate a TIO to perform STI-related activities…see more

STI Releasing Officials

Releasing Officials have responsibility for ensuring that STI has undergone appropriate sensitivity reviews and that subsequent recommendation to OSTI is made via established systems regarding release of STI in the public domain (i.e., unlimited announcement) or the application of DOE-approved access limitations, as well as other laws, policies, and schedules.

Contract Officers and Contract Specialist

A Contracting Officer is the DOE official authorized to execute awards on behalf of DOE and is responsible for the business management and non-program aspects of the financial assistance process. They are responsible for ensuring that the receipt of required interim and final scientific/technical reporting deliverables as identified on DOE F 4600.2, Federal Assistance Reporting Checklist, and in the contract are monitored and provided to DOE/OSTI.  See Identification of Required DOE Deliverables.
