Getting a non-SMART DoD Facility to become an SF

Post by Biomed »

Evening everyone,

Has anyone ever gotten a non-SMART DoD facility to become an official Sponsoring Facility? I'm a civilian engineer (federal employee) working for the DoD but unfortunately my organization is not affiliated with SMART, much less heard of it. I've been trying to ring this up to my chain of command but so far it's been stalled for over a year.

I would very much like to apply as a retention candidate for grad school, but I'm stuck in a holding pattern waiting for a plan from the higher-ups. Anyone have experience with this? I'm trying to avoid reinventing the wheel if possible.

I am also interested in this. I am interested in working for Walter Reed Army Institute of Research & US Army Research Institute of Infectious Diseases, but neither Army facility is registered as an SF.
