Since 2012, the Department of the Interior, as required by 15 U.S.C. § 3710(f), has been submitting annual reports on technology transfer activities to OMB, with copies sent to the Secretary of Commerce and the Attorney General. These reports highlight achievements related to technology transfer during each fiscal year. Based on these, and similar reports from other agencies, the National Institute of Science & Technology submits an annual Federal Laboratory report on technology transfer to the President and Congress.
