            (2) Justification.--Projects can be justified by ecosystem 
        benefits, clean-up of contaminated sites, public health, safety, 
        economic benefits or any combination of these. Sites restored 
        for economic purposes can be redeveloped by others. Restoration

                rights-of-way, relocations, excavated and/or dredged 
                material disposal areas exceeds the non-Federal share, 
                as identified in paragraph (3), the non-Federal interest 
                may waive any right under Federal cost-sharing policy to 
                receive cash reimbursement for any such value in excess 
                of the non-Federal share as identified in paragraph (3).
                    (B) The non-Federal interest may provide up to 100

                materials, supplies, or other in-kind contributions when 
                combined with lands, easements, rights-of-way, 
                relocations, excavated and/or dredged material disposal 
                areas shall not exceed the non-Federal share identified

[[Page 119 STAT. 2262]]

        determined by the Administrator of the Southwestern Power 
        Administration on the basis of the present value of the

            (1) The term ``noncompetitive management and operating 
        contract'' means a contract that was awarded more than 50 years 
        ago without competition for the management and operation of Ames 
        Laboratory, Argonne National Laboratory, Lawrence Berkeley 
        National Laboratory, Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, and 
        Los Alamos National Laboratory.
            (2) The term ``competitive procedures'' has the meaning 
        provided in section 4 of the Office of Federal Procurement 
        Policy Act (41 U.S.C. 403) and includes procedures described in 
        section 303 of the Federal Property and Administrative Services 
        Act of 1949 (41 U.S.C. 253) other than a procedure that solicits 
        a proposal from only one source.

    (c) For all management and operating contracts other than those 
listed in subsection (b)(1), none of the funds appropriated by this Act 
may be used to award a management and operating contract, or award a 
significant extension or expansion to an existing management and 
operating contract, unless such contract is awarded using competitive 
procedures or the Secretary of Energy grants, on a case-by-case basis, a 
waiver to allow for such a deviation. The Secretary may not delegate the 
authority to grant such a waiver. <<NOTE: Deadline. Reports.>> At least 
60 days before a contract award for which the Secretary intends to grant 
such a waiver, the Secretary shall submit to the Committees on 
Appropriations of the House of Representatives and the Senate a report 
notifying the Committees of the waiver and setting forth, in 
specificity, the substantive reasons why the Secretary believes the 
requirement for competition should be waived for this particular award.

for activities in this Act may be available to the same appropriation 
accounts for such activities established pursuant to this title. 
Available balances may be merged with funds in the applicable 
established accounts and thereafter may be accounted for as one fund for 
the same time period as originally enacted.
    Sec. 306. None of the funds in this or any other Act for the 
Administrator of the Bonneville Power Administration may be used to 
enter into any agreement to perform energy efficiency services outside 
the legally defined Bonneville service territory, with the exception of 
services provided internationally, including services provided on a 
reimbursable basis, unless the Administrator certifies in advance that 
such services are not available from private sector businesses.
    Sec. 307. When the Department of Energy makes a user facility 
available to universities or other potential users, or seeks input from 
universities or other potential users regarding significant 
characteristics or equipment in a user facility or a proposed user 
facility, the Department shall ensure broad public notice of such 
availability or such need for input to universities and other potential 
users. When the Department of Energy considers the participation of a 
university or other potential user as a formal partner in the 
establishment or operation of a user facility, the Department shall 
employ full and open competition in selecting such a partner. For 
purposes of this section, the term ``user facility'' includes, but is 
not limited to: (1) a user facility as described in section 2203(a)(2)

Office for plant or site-directed research and development: Provided 
further, That notwithstanding Department of Energy order 413.2A, dated
