The Assistant Administrator for Oceanic and Atmospheric Research and the Director
of National 1 Weather Service may establish a program to detail Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric
Research personnel to the National Weather Service and National Weather Service personnel
to the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research.
The goal of this program is to enhance forecasting innovation through regular, direct
interaction between the Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research's world-class scientists
and the National Weather Service's operational staff.
The program shall allow up to 10 Office of Oceanic and Atmospheric Research staff
and National Weather Service staff to spend up to 1 year on detail. Candidates shall be jointly selected by the Assistant Administrator for Oceanic and
Atmospheric Research and the Director of the National Weather Service.
Not less frequently than once each year, the Under Secretary shall submit to the Committee
on Commerce, Science, and Transportation of the Senate and the Committee on Science,
Space, and Technology of the House of Representatives a report on participation in
such program and shall highlight any innovations that come from this interaction.
So in original. Probably should read “the National”.
