Abstract

NIST needs and appreciates the kind of effort that has gone into the U.S. National Measurement Requirements Committee (NMRC) Report. We need input regarding U.S. measurement needs, we need to be able to assess the impact of providing or failing to provide measurement services, and we need to be able to measure the results of allocating staff and resources in providing these services. We appreciate the opportunity to work with NCSLI to obtain and evaluate the kind of information collected in the latest survey.We have obtained detailed feedback from the NIST Laboratories on each item listed in the U.S. NMRC Report. The detailed responses from the Laboratories have been summarized and are attached for Sections 4.1 and 4.3 in narrative form, and for the technical requirements in Section 4.2 in tabular form. In preparing these detailed responses, we have also identified several higher-level concerns and recommendations for the Committee that we hope will enable us to work more closely in the future to the benefit of NCSLI, NIST, and the U.S. measurement community. We present these generic concerns and recommendations immediately below.
