Paper Abstract

The Federal Contract Research Center (FCRC) operates in the region between that of a government organization and an industrial contractor. The organization, responsibilities and limitations of an FCRC are described. The advantages that accrue from such an organizational entity and the constraints imposed on the centers are discussed. The way in which programs are originated with the various government agencies and the organizational structures established in response to government needs are described. Several different case histories are presented to illustrate the various ways in which programs are managed depending upon the nature of the work to be performed.
