Reimbursable Agreements Coordination Office (RACO)
We have established a Reimbursable Agreements Coordination Office (RACO), under the Office of Acquisition and Agreements Management, to improve and streamline our internal procedures for accepting reimbursable funding. In addition, we want to communicate with you by giving you the tools and information necessary to ensure that our agreements with you will be processed and accepted as quickly as possible, while we ensure compliance with all legal requirements. RACO can be contacted directly by phone or e-mail, and is ready to assist you with the reimbursable agreement preparation process so that NIST can provide its service in the timely manner you deserve.
Our Mission: "Facilitating the efficient review of reimbursable agreements to ensure funding sponsors receive timely and high quality services."
NIST's acceptance of an agreement usually indicates NIST's intent to begin work on the agreement within 120 calendar days.If at any time you are not satisfied with the way NIST has handled your agreement during the pre-acceptance review process, please call me directly at 301-975-2300.
Thank you for your interest in working with NIST!
