This report examined: (1) the nature and extent of technology transfer at DoE's labs.; (2) the extent to which DoE can measure the effectivene

Congress has authorized the FCC to assign telecomm. licenses through auctions, and required more spectrum to be transferred from fed. govżt. use to commercial use.

In India public (government) tubewells were built with the intention of providing irrigation to all categories of farmers in a fair, equitable and affordable manner. However, most public tubewell programs across India have failed on all these counts. Efforts to transfer their management to water users too have met with little success. Nonetheless, the Gujarat Water Resources Development Corporation (GWRDC)-a state-owned public company-has achieved rare success in tubewell transfer by handing over management of around 60 percent of public tubewells in the Gujarat state to user groups.

The U.S. Federal Air Marshal Service (FAMS) has undergone a number of changes in recent years, including a 2003 transfer from the Transportation Security Admin.

A key aspect of federal air marshals' operating procedures is the discreet movement through airports as they check in for their flight, transit screening checkpoints, & board the aircraft. This report discusses FAMS's: (1) transfer to ICE & key practices that could facilitate its return to TSA; & (2) management of mission-related i
