A well-respected, objective, and focused forum through which the national laboratories can inform policy on issues that are both laboratory and non-laboratory specific and that affect the health and vitality of the science and technology enterprise in California.

A ready-made forum for the national laboratories to participate more fully in time-sensitive policy discussions.

An effective and efficient mechanism through which science and technology policy issues that emerge at the state level can be shared more effectively with national-level leaders.

Access to a cadre of highly trained and highly effective science and technology policy fellows to work with state governmental and legislative leaders.

Access to a California Teachers Advisory Council comprised of expert science and mathematics educators at the K-12 level to inform leaders in higher education, industry, and government about significant issues in science and mathematics education.

A formal relationship with Issues in Science and Technology, the nation?s premier S&T policy journal, and thereby increased opportunities for timely and informed discussions about S&T policy issues that are of concern to states.

A collaboration with the National Academies to harness the talent of California?s top experts in science and technology to assist state policy makers on matters involving mathematics, technology, and science and engineering education.

The Government intends to acquire a commercial item purchase order using FAR Part 12.
