Cost Savings*Unable to DetermineDollar Value Of Grants Recommended$0.00
Cost Savings CommentThe utilization of the Technical Electronic Product Radiation Safety Standards Committee enables the Agency to obtain required and frequently scare professional services from medical and scientific experts not otherwise available to the Agency; and to obtain the services of these only on an as needed basis rather than on a full time basis. The service of the Committee resulted in advice for the improvement of the public health, for which it is difficult to assign a financial value.Grants Review CommentNA
