Through a unique contracting mechanism between Battelle and the Department of Energy known as a Use Permit, Battelle may use DOE facilities and equipment on a full cost-reimbursement basis to conduct work on behalf of their clients. Battelle can directly perform contract R&D at PNNL for federal, state and local governments and for private companies. Each project is negotiated and tailored to the needs and resources of the participating parties. The contracting approach is flexible and typically conducted on a fixed price, time and material, or cost-reimbursement basis.
