1 DOE Office of Science Budget Overview Kenneth O. OlsenMSU/FRIBMay 1, 2014
2 INTRODUCTIONThis presentation is not an official review of the DOE SC budgetThe 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 projectsA more detailed budget presentation was given by Pat Dehmer, Acting Director SC, at the SPAFOA Capitol Hill on Dec. 12, 2013However that was before DOE received its FY-14 appropriation and release of the President’s FY-15 budget request in March

5 Basic Energy Sciences LCLS-II Major upgrade of Linac Coherent Light Source (LCLS) facility at SLAC to LCLS-IIRecommended by the BESAC in 2013 reportAdds new 4 GeV superconducting linac feeding new independently tunable undulatorsFY-14 funding $85.7MFY-15 Pres. Budget request $148M
6 Basic Energy Sciences- LCLS-II Total project cost est. $895M (Pres. FY-15 req.)First superconducting linac systems to be installed at SLACAcquired by SLAC under existing M&O contractSLAC 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 basisSPAFOA negotiating with SLAC for a members meeting, Sept 2014?
7 Fusion EnergyKey issue is the future of the US contribution to the ITER project in FranceIssue broader than DOE, involved agreements signed by the State Department
8 High Energy PhysicsMuon to Electron Conversion Experiment (Mu2e) complete design phase CD-2 in FY-15 and move into full constructionHigh 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 appropriationLBNE will be managed by Fermilab, long range detector system is at Homestake mine in SDA key cost/capability issue is the depth of far detectorWill be discussed in detail with SPAFOA at our next meeting at Fermilab (later this year?)
9 Nuclear Physics FRIB off and running. Congratulations!!! Thanks for the great presentations today
10 SPAFOA IssueDOE 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” basisSubstantive 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”
