Research programs often require conventional electrical equipment components of exceptional performance characteristics. These are generally obtained by awarding a research and development contract. To avoid the usual difficulties of R&D contracts (high cost, delay, proprietary rights, patents, etc.) the Electronics Engineering Department of the Lawrence Radiation Laboratory achieves such high-performance units by competitive, fixed-price purchase of several experimental components produced according to specified improvements in design or fabrication.
