​​​​​​From the summary: “Many U.S. government agencies rely on nonprofit federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) for independent expertise in systems engineering and integration (SE&I), study and analysis, and research and development. The relationship between a sponsor at a government agency and an FFRDC differs from that of an ordinary commercial contracting relationship not just because of the FFRDC’s not-for-profit status but also because of the relationship’s intended longevity and reliance on trust.”
