The Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) is managed and operated by the University of California (UC) under U.S. Department of Energy Contract No. DE-AC02-05CH11231 (Contract 31). The requirements of Contract 31 and UC must be translated into Laboratory policies, programs, and procedures that its workforce can use to effectively and efficiently meet the needs of its customers and stakeholders.
The Laboratory’s Requirements Management (RM) Program oversees the system and processes for managing contractually-based requirements. The RM Program has three main elements:
- A RM process to manage new or changed requirements,
- A business (or database) system to manage and trace the relationships among Laboratory requirements, policies, programs, and other institutional documents and information,
- A document management process for managing Laboratory policies, programs, and procedures.
