"The Department of Defense may make funds available to the National Science Foundation out of monies appropriated in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 1991, to support the activities of the Critical Technologies Institute during the 1992 fiscal year. This responds to your request for our opinion whether the Department of Defense ('DoD') may make $5 million available to the Director of the National Science Foundation ('NSF') out of monies appropriated in the Department of Defense Appropriations Act, 1991, Pub. L. No. 101-511, tit. IV, 104 Stat. 1856, 1870 (1990) ('FY 91 Appropriations Act'). The funds would be used to support the activities of the Critical Technologies Institute ('the Institute') during the current fiscal year. Although you have concluded that DoD may make those monies available for this purpose, (1) DoD disagrees. (2) We conclude that DoD may take those monies available for funding the activities of the Institute."
