Budget Overview

INTRODUCTION
• This presentation is not an official review of the DOE SC
budget
• The total FY-14 appropriation for SC is $5,066M and the
President's request for FY-15 is $5,111M, a net increase of
0.9%
• Presentation focus is on areas that potentially impact
advanced accelerator R&D and construction projects
• A more detailed budget presentation was given by Pat
Dehmer, Acting Director SC, at the SPAFOA Capitol Hill on
Dec. 12, 2013
• However that was before DOE received its FY-14
appropriation and release of the President’s FY-15 budget
request in March

DOE SC Major Project Milestones
Major projects managed under DOE Order 413.3b
https://www.directives.doe.gov/directives.../0413.
3-BOrder-b
• CD-0 Approve Mission Need
• CD-1 Approve Alternative Selection and Cost
Range
• CD-2 Approve Performance Baseline
• CD-3A Approve Long-Lead Procurements
• CD-3 Approve Start of Construction
• CD-4 Approve Start of Operations
Basic Energy Sciences LCLS-II
• Major upgrade of Linac Coherent Light Source
(LCLS) facility at SLAC to LCLS-II
• Recommended by the BESAC in 2013 report
• Adds new 4 GeV superconducting linac
feeding new independently tunable
undulators
• FY-14 funding $85.7M
• FY-15 Pres. Budget request $148M
Basic Energy Sciences- LCLS-II
• Total project cost est. $895M (Pres. FY-15 req.)
• First superconducting linac systems to be installed at
SLAC
• Acquired by SLAC under existing M&O contract
• SLAC will partner with other DOE Labs for the design
and procurement of key technical components,
(probably FNAL and Jlab)
• All subcontracts will be competitively bid on a best
value to the Government basis
• SPAFOA negotiating with SLAC for a members meeting,
Sept 2014?
Fusion Energy
• Key issue is the future of the US contribution
to the ITER project in France
• Issue broader than DOE, involved agreements
signed by the State Department
High Energy Physics
• Muon to Electron Conversion Experiment (Mu2e) complete design
phase CD-2 in FY-15 and move into full construction
• High Energy Physics Advisory Panel (HEPAP) to review P-5 report on
future recommendations for HEP activities including the Long
Baseline Neutrino Experiment (LBNE) and make recommendations
to SC/ OHEP.
• Report is scheduled to be presented to HEPAP May 18.
• OHEP plans to have information of the proposed future of LBNE in
time to impact FY-15 appropriation
• LBNE will be managed by Fermilab, long range detector system is at
Homestake mine in SD
• A key cost/capability issue is the depth of far detector
• Will be discussed in detail with SPAFOA at our next meeting at
Fermilab (later this year?)
Nuclear Physics
• FRIB off and running. Congratulations!!!
• Thanks for the great presentations today
SPAFOA Issue
• DOE is now engaged in 3 major facility R,D, and
construction projects; LCLS II, FRIB, and potentially LBNE.
Subcontracts for hardware and construction services
appear to be made on a “best value” basis
• Substantive involvement in these projects has the potential
of several hundred million dollars of business, growth of
hundreds of high-tech jobs, and long term business
prospects in other SCRF applications for US industry.
• We need to get this message across to decision makers
when they define “best value”
• SPAFOA BOD will be discussing a white paper on “best
value”
