Work for Others/Non-Federal Entities
A Work for Others/Non-Federal Entities (WFO/NFE) agreement is a bilateral contract that enables a non-federal partner to request the Laboratory to perform a defined scope of work or tasks that draw upon the unique capabilities of the Laboratory. While the Department of Energy financially supports the majority of research conducted at the Laboratory, funding from other sources — sponsored research — is growing in importance. Sponsored research is conducted consistent with the Work for Others guidelines established by DOE for national laboratories. (See TT Tip for more details.)
These agreements protect proprietary information exchanged between parties during initial interactions and discussions between the Laboratory and another party on specific technical areas.
