If a Federally Funded Research and Development Centre (FFRDC) or State Laboratory (GOGO) is the lead organization of a project team, ARPA-E implements a funding agreement directly with the FFRDC or GOGO and a single separate cooperation agreement with the rest of the project team. Regardless of the use of several agreements, the FFRDC or GOGO is the leading organization for the entire project, including all work performed by the FFRDC or GOGO and the rest of the project team. – Work authorization – Financial instrument used when a federally funded research and development centre (FFRDC) is a DEE laboratory in a project team. The work authorization is executed directly with the DOE laboratory separately from the cooperation agreement with the other team members. – Inter-institutional agreement (ILO) – Agreement between two government agencies (excluding DOE National Labs). If a lab (non-DOE) is a member of the project team, ARPA-E can run an ILO directly with the non-DOE National Lab entity. A unique, separate cooperation agreement is implemented with the other entities of the project team. – Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) – An agreement between a non-federal entity (i.e. the private/scientific sector) and a federal laboratory.
