 The Department of Defense decertified Logistics Management Institute of McLean, VA as an FFRDC, effective September 24, 1998.
 In June 1997, the Office of the Secretary of Defense, became the sponsor of the Software Engineering Institute. The previous sponsor was Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
 The following portions of the RAND Corporation are FFRDCs: National Defense Research Institute (formerly Defense/Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff), the Arroyo Center, and the Science and Technology Policy Institute (formerly Critical Technologies Institute). All other agency support to RAND is reported under "other nonprofit institutions excluding FFRDCs."
 Only the C3I Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC), the Center for Advanced Aviation System Development, and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Federally Funded Research and Development Center (FFRDC) parts of the MITRE Corporation are FFRDCs. All other agency support to MITRE is reported under "other nonprofit institutions excluding FFRDCs."
 Although the Institute for Defense Analyses Communications and Computing FFRDC has been in existence since 1956, the Department of Defense added it to the Master Government List of FFRDCs for the first time in October 1995.
 The Department of the Army decertified the Institute for Advanced Technology (University of Texas), Austin, TX, as an FFRDC in November 1993.
 The Department of Energy decertified Bettis Atomic Power Laboratory, Hanford Engineering Development Laboratory, and Knolls Atomic Power Laboratory as FFRDCs in October/November 1992. The Department of Energy removed from the Master Government List of FFRDCs
(1) the Energy Technology Engineering Center in November 1995 and (2) the Inhalation Toxicology Research Institute in May 1996.
(3) the Oak Ridge Institute for Science Education (ORISE) in February 1999.
 On March 1, 1998, Brookhaven National Laboratory acquired a new nonprofit administrator (Brookhaven Science Associates, Inc.). The previous administrator was a university consortium.
 In September 1991 the name was changed from Solar Energy Research Institute.
 In May 1996 the name was changed from Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility. On April 1, 2000, Oak Ridge National Laboratory acquired a new nonprofit administrator (UT-Battelle, LLC). The previous administrator was the industrial firm Lockheed Martin Energy Research Corporation.
 In 2000, the name was changed from NCI Frederick Cancer Research and Development Center. It continues to be an FFRDC.
 On October 1, 1998, the Critical Technologies Institute was renamed the Science and Technology Policy Institute.
 Since February 1984 this center has included three former FFRDCs: Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory, Kitt Peak National Observatory, and the National Solar Observatory (formerly Sacramento Peak Observatory).
