Federal management of FFRDCs is based upon the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR, 35.017). FAR provides guidelines to be followed in establishing, organizing, and managing FFRDCs and limits agencies’ use of FFRDCs to meet “some long-term research or development need which cannot be met effectively by existing in-house or contractor resources.” (FAR, 35.017)
