Administrative Affairs Working Group

NUFO's primary mission is to facilitate communication among users, user organizations, facility administrators, and other stakeholders. The Administrative Affairs Working Group, which currently includes all administrative representatives of NUFO facilities, focuses on operational needs. The user administrators from NUFO facilities hold regular teleconferences, conduct benchmarking surveys, and discuss ways in which they can facilitate user access by standardizing and streamlining processes. Examples of prior successes and future endeavors include the following:

  • A NUFO representative worked with the Department of Energy as part of a team to rewrite DOE Order 142.3A (Foreign Visits & Assignments), which defines a program for unclassified foreign national access to DOE sites, information, technologies, and equipment. The experience and expertise of the NUFO user administrators helped to ensure that the revised order supports the importance of national security issues while maintaining the intellectual nature and scientific productivity of user facilities.
  • This Working Group is currently investigating the possibility of using Web-based user agreement execution process developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to streamline this process at other national laboratories. Brookhaven National Laboratory and Argonne National Laboratory have agreed to serve as pilot sites.
  • This Working Group will collaborate with the Cyber and Computing Affairs Group to pursue a standardized cyber security training program that can be implemented by all facilities.
