FLC Policies

Featured here are the FLC Bylaws and the FLC’s Strategic Plan. Both documents provide an in-depth look at how the FLC functions as an organization, as well as explain the tactful direction the organization is headed to further its mandates and facilitate technology transfer among its member laboratories and industry.

  • The Federal Laboratory Consortium for Technology Transfer (FLC) operates through the combined effort of many individuals that may be by position, elected, staff, subcontractors, or interested stakeholders from industry, academia, and state and local government.  Volunteers from a variety of sources are key to the ongoing function of the FLC.  This policy describes how the FLC will recruit, manage, and work with volunteers. 

  • This policy was approved by the FLC Executive Board during their April 2021 Board Meeting. It outlines the financial management of FLC funds, budget and budget requests, authority to sign contracts, financial reserves, expense reimbursement, check signing and the fiscal year. 

  • All wire transfers from the FLC under the Cooperative Agreement with AUTM will be disbursed from AUTM according to the following steps outlined in this policy. 

  • The National Advisory Council (NAC) is tasked to provide the Executive Board (EB) with user community views and suggestions related to the operations of the Consortium, as well as independent advice on any other topics mutually agreed to by the EB and the NAC. This document outlines the policies applied to the NAC. 

  • The FLC Strategic Partnerships Policy was approved by the Executive Board in September 2020. The FLC will identify and establish strategically aligned relationships with intermediary partners that connect relevant communities of interest (technical, geographical, market, State & local governments, etc.) with Federal labs for interactions. This policy will be maintained by the Facilitate Committee.

  • This policy was approved by the FLC Executive Board during their July 2020 Board Meeting. It outlines the financial management of FLC funds, budget and budget requests, authority to sign contracts, financial reserves, expense reimbursement, check signing and the fiscal year.
