LETTER OF TRANSMITTAL
HousE OFp REPRESENTATIVES,
ComxrrrmE ON SCIENCE AimU TECHNlOLOGY,
Hon. Omw~ E. TEAGUJE, Waahingtoti, D.C., November 10, 1976. CMirman, Committee on Science and Technsology, Howe, of Repmeentativeg, Washkngton, D.C.
DEA MR CHAIMAN: I am transmitting herewith a report on the operation of the U.S.-U.S.S.R. Cooperative Agreements on Science and Technology.
This Subcommittee's predecessor, the Subcommittee on International Cooperation in Science and Space of the House Committee on Science and Astronautics, held hearings on this subject in June, 1972. This was one month after the Moscow Summit Meeting at which the first of a series of accords were signed.
The purpose of those hearings, as stated by the Subcommittee's Chairman, the Honorable James W. Symington, was "to provide the committee with better insight into their full meaning, and their implications for the future." He added that the committee would also like to explore potential methods for implementing the agreements.
It thus seemed to be a propitious time in late 1975-following a trial period of over three and one-half years-to review the policies and programs of these bilateral agreements and to focus particularly on the scientific research benefits. The hearings were held on November 18-20,1975, in Washington, D.C.
The Summar and Analysis was prepared by Claire Riley Geier, analyst in the Sience Policy Research Division, Congressional Research Service, Library of Congress, in collaboration with the Subcommittee staff.
I commend it to you and to all Members of the Committee.
Sincerely yours, RAY THORNTON, Chimwfl
Subcommittee on Domestic and Intenational
Scientific Planning and Avaiyig.

MOSTt EFFECTIVE MANNER
Periodically, and no less than annually, all individual Workincg Group projects. now numbering about 150, khmild be subjected to a critical evaluation. The principle of reciprocity should be broadly applied. There may be individual Working Group projects where one side gains more than the other while in other projects the reverse may be true. But on balarice, the entire program Should be evaluated to insure that both nations give as much as they receive. The benefits gained by each nation should consist of scientific and technological knowledge which is helpful and useful in advancing, research and development objectives. Resources should be concentrated on projects'which offer a demonstrably greater potential for more meanineful scientific or technical returns.
Such evaluation will insure that worthwhile projects will not
suffer at the expense of marginal projects.

When such a situation develops, it should lead to immediate requests for cooperationl on the part of the Soviet side.

The haphazard funding procedures currently employed by the Federal departments and agencies involved in this bilateral pro!am has increasingly impeded the performance of the participants and has adversely affected the progress of many projects. Because of the failure to provide line-items in lead agency budgets for this inter-national programn. funds
now must be transferred from domestic programs ito support projects o i f the former. If the lead agencies are to fulfill fbe*ir assigned, missions under this program, then adequat6,fuyidi g commensurate with their responsibilities should be provided.

However-, -the Executive Secretary for this agreement is located in the Department of State.

The first hearings on this subject were held by this Subcommittee's predecessor in June 1972, one month after the signing of the first of a seriesof bilateral agreements between the U.S.
and the U.S.S.R. 'on science and technology. The second and most recent hearings on these agreements were, held in midNovember 1975, three and one-half years later. From the Subcommittee's viewpoint, the informational gap which had developed during the interval between hearings was evident during the latter hearings. In order to be better informed at subsequent hearings and to avoid an informational catch-up situation as had prevailed, it is recommended that the Committee be provided reports on this p ogram. in order to assure it an informed foundation for carrying out its Congressional
oversight responsibilities in the future.

Additionally, statements were submitted for the hearing record (See Appendix 1, Hearings), by the seven U.S. Chairmen representing the remaining eight agreements.3 In addition to the statement on Medical Science and Public Health, papers wer alsq receiv9pd fortle following six cooperative agreements: space; agriculture; transportation; peaceful uses of atomic energy; energy; And housing and other construction.

Not all projects however have progressed to the actual working phase. Under the Scfitific and Technical Agreement, 24 of 49 projects were operative in October 1975, whereas onliy 4 projects had been functioning during the previous October.
The w itnesses discussed other administrative features of the treements program including the role of lead agencies (iLe. thoe with foremost administrative or substantive responsibilities for a specific agreement, or project), coordination and policy (including the roles of the Department of State and the National Security Council) and attendant considerations concerning security, foreign policy, funding, travel, and problems of translation.
Substantively, two (Chemical Catalysis and Electrometallurgy of the twelve working groups under the Agreement on Scienti e and Technical Cooperation were examined in some depth. While no working group leader from the other two agreements, i.e. Environmental Protection and World -Ocean, testified at the hearings because of time limitations, the U.S. Chairman or his designated alternate for these agreements covered their respective areas in a forthight and comtprei hensive manner.

productive or marginal programs while preserving those which demonstrated prospects for meaningful benefits;
0 Those projects which had failed to live up to reasonable expectations or to an otherwise foreseeable potential because of unnecessary or unwarranted delays by the Soviet side, with due allowance for the normal bureaucratic pace, should be promptly terminated;
0 Some worthwhile projects might suffer severely unless immediate measures are undertaken to resolve the funding issue keenly felt by some lead agencies, a problem which in turn, may also affect the translation process;
0 The role of the Department of State could be more clearly defined and possibly confined to matters of foreign policy to assure the unfettered pursuit, between the scientists of both parties, of scientific objectives with due allowance for policy and national security restrictions. A separate, central coordinating organization was conceived necessary in this context to administer to the strictly substantive side of the agreements and to the resolution of day-to-day scientific problems.
0 The committee, in fulfiffing its oversight function, should be provided, on a regular basis, with current status reports on the U.S.-U.S.S.R. scientific agreements program by the agencies of the Executive Branch responsible for that program.

tration amplified the purpose of the Executive Seretaries Committee meetings:
It is not the intent of those meetings to provide technical
guidance. That is my understanding. I look to it for policy
guidance and direction. [p. 7(5]
Some Committee members were interested in the overall coordination of the Joint Commissions. Specifically, Congressman Conlan asked Dr. Stever, as Chairman of the U.S. side of his Joint Commission, to whom he reported: Dr. Stever responded that he reported to the Under Secretary of State and to the National Security C~ouncil with respect to his judgment on the reciprocity of the exchanges.
Asked if the National SecurityK Council directs the work of the working groups anid Joint Commissions, Mr. Kratzer replied:
It has an oversight responsibility which I think is a better
way of putting it. It is certainly not, in any real sense of the word, a direct supervisory relationship. Each one of these joint committees is headed by a very senior official, often the Secretary of the government department or agency concerned.
Chairman Thornton asked Dr. Allen Kassof, Director of the International Research and Exchanges Board, -his opinion of the Government's responsibilities toward this program as administered b~y the Department of State within the context of the oversight function of the National Security Council: "Do you think that such a continuing evaluation or oversight by the NSC would be a proper function, even if the administration of the program was performed outside the Department of State?" [p. 1021 Dr. Kassof answered that the National Security Council certainly should be informed of developments in the program especially in relation to security matters but, he added, that "should not be confused with the daily administration of these programs. That is a separate matter." [p. 102]
Chairman Thornton asked Dr. Kassof, concerning daily administration of the agreements, whether he preferred that they should be coordinated through the newly proposed Office of Science and Technology Policy or by a quasi-governmental body. Dr. Kassof replied:
My own preference is for a quaigvrmnlornization. The reason for this has to do with a danger to which I alluded to in my prepared testimony, namely, the possibility of confusion between diplomatic and scientific priorities.
** It seems to ne that if we are engaged in these science projects we ought to be doing so because they are important
in their own right [p. 102]
On the subject of the part to be played by the Department of State, Mr. Train testified that it should not "run the cooperative effort in a programmatic se. . ." 11ie added:
I think the strength of agreements such as this lies in their
being conducted primarily by hs wit progrmaire
sponsibilities on both sides. When you get the fellow who has a budget control on one side talking with an opposite number who has some comparability as to budget control, they can
reach agreement and say OK, we cam do this. The State Department cannot do this. It cannot commit my staff and my budget. . while I think the State Department has an enormously important role, it should be distinguished and kept
separate from the direct running of the program. [p. 143]
Dr. Alexander Rich, of the Massachusetts Institute of Technologty and Chairman of the Scientific Exchange Board of the National Academy of Sciences, (NAS) testified that the Department of State's role was important in a "catalytic" seme. However, "it should not be an operating arm because the principals really should be the people who are doing the work," he said, adding7 "I think you run into. too many difficulties if you have someone responsible for it, and someone, else running it who is not responsible for it." [p. 249]
When asked by Chairman Thornton for his opinion of an annual Congressional review, Mr. Kratzer responded:
I thiuk it would be very wise, Air. Chairman, for the conimittee to receive, if I could presume to put myself in your shoes, a periodic report on the progress of these agreements.
11 am sure that we would be very fortheoming in developing
such reports for you. [p. 521
Although many witnesses commented on one or more of the administrative problems in the agreements program, most of them expressed some concern over the funding arrangements. Chairman Thornton asked how the funding process might be improved, asid Dr. Steer replied:
We are in the agency-I am now speaking as Director of
the National Science Foundation-handling our funds in line with our regular procedures. Essentially each agency must fit the U.S.S.R. activities into *ts, -ogram. You will find it in the budget presentation and 0juws't1iKc'at1on from the National Science Foundation.... A statement to the effect that some of the additional money we come to Congress for, is included for further international cooperative research, primarily
with the U.S.S.R. [p. 14]
As an example of the financial pressures upon the, National Science Foundation, Dr. Alexander Rich, Chairman of the Sc-ienre Exchange Board of the National Academy of Sciences, noted that all of the NAS's programs were funded by the National Science, Foundation. And, he said, fiscal limitations on the NSF budget, in terms of its international program, has placed pressure on the Academy programs. The above mentioned report prepared by the General Accounting Office also had noted that the, lack of centralized funding policies greatly impeded the work of the agreements.5
In r esponding to the GAO's contention that policies for funding the agreements had adversely affected progress under the agfeements, Dr. Gary Fromm suggested:
Funding for the program might better be undertaken by explicit recognition in the Federal budget process and- sul;mis5 Op. cit., A Progress Report on United States-Soviet Union Cooperative Programs, p. 46.

COOPERATIVE SCIENTIFIC RF""CH
Dr.4 i%_ver underscored the scientific rather than the technologically thrust of the agreements.
most'bf the activities' 'in our agreement focus on basic
and applied scientific research and not on technology. The Soviets are pursuing their interests in technology in other &reas outside of our agreement, primarily through contacts
wl* United States' private companies.
My review of the Science and Technology Agreement,
Ithink indicates the wide variety of areasandtypesof activities Qertaken in these cooperative programs. [pp. 7-8]
Addressing himself to cooperative research in general, Dr. Kassof praise four basic questions for the Subcommittee's consideration:
Is them a reasonable balance 1
How are participating Americans treated?
What posture should the United States adopt when research
does not proceed equitably?
How should these enterprises be implemented?
These have been addressed in other parts of this summary but they are mentioned here to indicate Dr. Kassof's belief that they form an integral part of the evaluating process for cooperative research.
(A) ACADEMY EXCHANGES
The agreements discussed by Dr. Rich between the National Academy of Sciences and the Soviet Academy of Sciences, although not part of the gove men Is cooperative agreements program, illustrate the similarities in the two cooperative efforts. He noted that these agreements grew out of the relaxation of cold war tensions during the late fifties, and were concluded at the initiative of the Soviet government. The National Academy which customarily engages in providing advisory services, now provides three kinds of internge
First, academicians and distinguished persons are exchanged in orderto lecture for periods of up to one month. Second, scieDtists visit each other's count to compare and survey different fields of research. Third, there are a7so, visits for long-term research which extend for about one year. The inter-Academy exchanges have also included symposia visits in subjects such as radio astronomy and partial differential e"ations.

(B) ROLF, OF SCIENTISTS
In assessing cooperative research the Subcommittee examined the treatment received by American scientists abroad as well as their views on the research programs. Dr. Fromm posed and answered two illustrative questions on the subject:
"What feedback is provided by leading U.S. scientists about
their work on cooperative projects?" Participants have been requested to. submit.reports and have responded to inquiries

Stevow somed. wH satiofieti that a quid pro quo existed. Further, he felt tW theV iprace of a quid pro quo was not merely limited to the U.S. uide. Cogressman Ooiilan on-this point inquied:
Evidence has come to my attention that the U.S.S.R. Com,
imioner have pntt wel dictated the choice fo the work-n group areas md the pr~ojets to be cduted, Coud you
comment on that? [p. 15]
Dr. Stever stated that~ he did not~ believe that this was true. He hd said previously that "there is abundant evidence of good will
an*srious intent to engage in productive joint efforts. On the posit1* sde Ican report modest but coneirete resutig."1 [p. 81t
Dr'. Kassof also depicted an atmosphere, of good will in te privatesector, IREX program: "1Tndeed, the actuail record comes asa pleasant-and i asuring-uprise. We very carefully follow uip Soviet visits to our univmity ewuse~s an~d 10,xsratories by comprehensive questionnaires t~o the Amicn academic and scientific hosts in order to explore this issue." [p. 81] Air. Train, in speaking of the Environmental Protetioni Agrement, stated:
..I would say on balance that it is really going as well, an Iwouldsupcti mnaiy ways i Iaa d deal

Mr. Train indicated that there seemed to be reciprocity in the Environmental Protection Agreement. He mentioned as an exampibi theinterest shwn in the West in the development of oil shale

the retorting' process, with which we, have no expxeiene'.
Other specific examples of mutually beneficial research are reiewed under Paxt 2, dealing with the three specific agreements discussed at the hearings.
In spite of the general belief that there is reciprocity iin the agreements, the witnesses agreed that there shlid be safeguiards to mainti it anid measures~ for "scaling down" those projects that seem to.qpc it. As noted above, the chirmien of thLe joint working groups tirednLo assure continual bal ance in their respective areas. But there were other reciprocal features, as Dr. Stever noted:
You do not have to just balance one man or onie computer
with another adding up the bill here. If a grup ofscientsts spend their time in one of these fields and discovers that it is not getting something back for what it puts in, the scientists
are going to ref use to continue the acivitf. They just will not
spend their time without benefit. [p. 182
Chairman Thornton asked Dr. Stever to describe how decisions are made to curtail or terminate certain projects.
Dr. Stever replied:
We asked ourselves and the working groups if some of the:
activities should be stopped. We have slowed down some of them practically to P. stop. My feeling is that we do not need at this particular time. .. some of these things. If we are not doing anything on them, then we are not doing anything on
them, lest Atem go down to a low level. [p. 84]
He noted that this method, however, would not be appropriate for the long term, and added that a way should be. found to pick those projects which are most promising for both sides. Mr. Kratzer stated that no new projects were currently under consideration,
Dr. Kassof s uggested that allowances should be made fort hose projects that appeared to be lagging, noting that bureaucratic differences between the tw9 nationss contributed greatly to these problems. He added:
But once-due allowance has been made, there should be no
hesitation to abort projects-and in cases where delays and
obstructions have been severe and where efforts andresn
able negotiation have failed, the 4ormination should -be exposed to the full glare of publicity so that those having a~ stake in the continuation of Soviet-American project cooperation and the public imagery that it entails will come to
realize the costs of nion-performance. [p. 83]
Dr. Fromm testified that the ability to terminate projects should also obtain in cases where it seemed that the-U.S.S.R. might become superior to the United States, in areas. where the latter now leads. Dr. Fromm noted that if U.S. superiority "was seriously threatened by, scientific cooperation and this were felt to be detrimental to the national interest," the United States always had the option of curtailing or terminating the program. [p. 9~41
The hearings reflected both pluses and minuses on the question of mutuality of benefits asdid the statements submitted subsequently from lead agencies which had not testified. Robert W. Lon g, U.S. Vice-chairman of the U.S.-U.S.S.R. Joint Committee on Agricultural Cooperation and Assistant Secretary of Agriculture for Conservation, Research and Education, stated on this issue that:
The major problem, and the largest of all problems with
the entire Agreement, is the failure so far of the Soviets to provide current situation and outlook data [i.e. forecast estimates] on production, utilization and foreign trade of major
agricultural commodities. [p. 290]
The Soviet refusal to provide the above data to the U.S. side has had the not effect of making "the benefits obtained by the Soviets from the Agreement larger so far than those received by the United States, measured entirely
A y in agricultural and agriculturally-related terms.
. agreement activities have not yet proceeded far enough to make this imbalance unacceptable to the United States, but there is watchful concern." [p. 293]
. The statement from the Department of Transportation, while noting that the Soviets had conducted themselves in a "forthcoming and businesslike way", indicated two problems, among others, affecting cooperation:
 We have found that, despite their assertions to the contrary, the Soviets lag behind the U.S. in some areas where we had hoped to gain froin their experience (e.g., magnetic
 In order to maximize the cooperative relationship, we
need more information conce ng what the Soviets have to offer. In most cases we have to rely on what they say is available. Their task is easier because much of what isnew here
is covered in the open press. [p. 316]
The testimony indicated that overall there appeared to be a comparable level of scientific contributions, although, the achievements were modest to date.

.A Dr. Baldeschwieler expressed optimism for these projects. He said: "Inthe two and a half years we have been operating we have in fact rasnaged to get a substantial number of exchanges both ways." fp. 215] He provided a list of publications, which resulted from the eap for the hearing rd p. 220-21]
Concerning problem areas, Dr. BIschwicler indicated that most of these were of an administrative nature, stemming from the different ways in which the United States and the Soviets performed their research.
-There are various asymmetries in the way the United States and the Soviet Union do research that, of course, enter t1ds kind of program., And of these asymmetries, I think perhaps the most important one is the fact that the fellows we -send to the Soviet Union:are normally fresh Ph. D.Is just beginning their post"doctoral work.
no Soviet fellows on the other hand have been somewhat
older. They have been people who would, in our system, be
regarded as perhaps equivalent to senior research fellows.
There is also an &symmetry, he, continued, in the way the Soviets deliver or follow-up their programs.
M rincip al concern is with [working group] project

our original agreement,
we have been reasonably that is to say, the Soviets are
anxious to bring additional U.S. cap bilit;v 'into this area, that is, some work on the structure of zirconium and titanium complexes, and we have taken the position that we will do this only when they deliver in full on that portion of the project
which has already been agreed to. [p. 216]
In spite of such problems, Dr. Baldeschwieler noted progress had been greater than he had initially expected.

In my view, one of the special characteristics of the Environmental Agreement is the extraordinary scope of its coverage. It opens up an unusually wide range of positive opportunities for cooperation to the mutual benefit of both nations. To be sure, some obstacles remain, but on the basis of the record we have achieved to date, I am confident we
