The overall purpose of the STFP is to enlist highly-qualified non-government Ph.D.-level scientists and engineers (S&Es) to enhance the scientific and technological (S&T) research capabilities and accomplishments of the USAF S&T organizations. The objectives of the STFP include: Attraction of applicants: The intent of the STFP is to attract a broad and diverse spectrum of applicants with Ph.D.s who are highly qualified to conduct research of relevance to the USAF laboratories where they are placed. Evaluation of applicants: To ensure the stature of the program and the quality of the research associates selected to participate in this program, the STFP contractor should employ review panels that consist of experts from academia, industry, and government. The review panels will evaluate applicant packages to identify those applicants that are qualified for the program in general and for the specific research opportunity that he/she is applying for. Final selection of an applicant to become a research associate will be made by the Government based upon the review panels recommendations. Selection of Government research advisors and topic areas: All USAF organizations seeking to place research associates at their location through STFP must provide the STFP contractor with names of research advisors and research topic area descriptions for which they are advisors. The STFP contractor will recommend a set of criteria to the Government Program Manager (GPM) that the research advisors and the S&T areas must satisfy to be included in the program. Upon approval of these criteria, the STFP contractor will provide external review panels that consist of highly-qualified experts to evaluate the qualifications, in accordance with the agreed-upon criteria, of the proposed government research advisors and their research topics provided by the USAF organizations. Final selection of a proposed government research advisor will be made by the government based upon the review panels recommendations. Placement and management of research associates: The STFP contractor will employ the applicants who are selected to become research associates by the government and place them at designated locations on the Governments behalf. The relationship between the STFP contractor and the research associate will be that of a prime and subcontractor, where the prime is the STFP contractor and the research associate is the subcontractor. The STFP contractor shall remain in charge of all research associates, accomplishing all the relevant activities that are necessary.
