PROGRAM Sec. 256.1 Introduction. 256.2 The Research Associate Program. 256.3 Procedure. 256.4 Qualifications. 256.5 Duration of projects. 256.6 Information concerning the Research
Associate Program. AUTHORITY: The provisions of this part 256 issued under 27 Stat. 395, 31 Stat. 1039; 20 U.S.C. 91.
SOURCE: The provisions of this Part 256 appear at 32 F.R. 10252, July 12, 1967, unless otherwise noted. $ 256.1 Introduction.
This Part states policies and procedures concerning the Research Associate Program at the National Bureau of Standards. In the exercise of its functions as a major scientific agency of the Federal Government, the National Bureau of Standards may make its facilities available to persons other than Bureau employees to work with NBS scientists and engineers in collaborative research aimed at furthering the Nation's scientific, industrial, and economic growth. Such cooperative programs may be sponsored by professional, technical, or industrial organizations or associations. Such participants, when so sponsored, are designated "Research Associates”. § 256.2 The Research Associate Program.
The Bureau provides its facilities, scientific competence, and technical supervision for defined scientific or technical research by a Research Associate when such research is complementary to and compatible with scientific or technical research being performed or to be undertaken by NBS under its statutory mission and authority. The Sponsors pay the salaries of their Research Associates and Sponsor-furnished technical as
sistants and secretaries of the Research Associates, if any, their travel costs, and other related expenses. Additionally, Sponsors reimburse NBS for the cost of research equipment, services, or materials obtained for the Research Associate. Beginning in the third year of continued sponsorship, Sponsors also reimburse the Bureau for other costs such as, supervision and administrative expenses at a rate comparable to the cost experienced for NBS employees for similar services. § 256.3 Procedure.
Arrangements for collaborative research by NBS with a Research Associate generally begin through discussions or correspondence between NBS scientists and representatives of potential sponsoring companies, trade associations or professional organizations. These preliminary steps are followed by the consummation of a Memorandum of Agreement which is signed by NBS, the sponsoring organization and the Research Associate. The agreement sets out the respective responsibilities and obligations of all parties. $ 256.4 Qualifications.
Each candidate selected to serve as a Research Associate must be determined to be scientifically qualified by the Sponsor and by the NBS, and found by NBS to be of good moral character and to possess suitable personal qualities. § 256.5
Duration of projects. The work of a Research Associate is generally conducted on a full-time basis. Typically, Research Associates are in residence at NBS for 6 to 18 months; longer-term programs may be carried on by a succession of Research Associates. Agreements provide for cancellation by any of the parties. § 256.6 Information concerning the Re
search Associate Program. Information concerning the Research Associate Program may be obtained from the Office of Professional and Academic Liaison, National Bureau of Standards, Washington, D.C. 20234. [38 FR 25908, Sept. 17, 1973]
