A. Out of the amounts for Higher Education Research, $596,649 the first year and $596,649 the second year from the general fund shall be made available as administrative support for the operation of the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility (CEBAF).

B. Consistent with the recommendations of the General Assembly on the restructuring of higher education, the College of William and Mary and the Virginia Institute of Marine Science are directed to continue the development of a plan to merge the administrative functions of the two agencies. The merger should be viewed not only as a way to reduce costs, but to improve administrative support to the Virginia Institute of Marine Science as an academic unit of the College. Review of opportunities for merger shall include anticipated staffing reductions and cost savings from combined purchasing, payroll, accounting, and academic oversight.

C.1. This appropriation includes $118,000 the first year and $243,000 the second year from the general fund for the costs to lease and equip space for activities related to technology transfer, research, and graduate work.
