To support its missions, many of the technologies, processes, and special technical expertise developed at Sandia have been applied to solving problems in the private sector through mutually beneficial, technology partnerships under a SPP/NFE Agreement.

Under a SPP/NFE Funds-In Agreement (FIA), which is a bi-lateral sales contract, SNL can conduct work for a NFE Sponsor on a reimbursable basis.

The SPP/NFE Agreement facilitates the availability of Sandia’s unique resources to private industry and individuals, state and local governments, colleges and universities, non-profit organizations, international organizations, foreign governments, and foreign companies to validate or improve technologies.
