The Regents of the University of California operate the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory as a Government-owned, contractor-operated facility under contract to the Energy Research and Development Administration. Berkeley maintains a computer facility to support its research in three primary areas: physical research, biomedical research, and energy and environment research.

Although not designated as such, the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory computer facility is essentially operating as a Federal Scientific Data Processing Center, offering its services to nonlaboratory Government users. The lower costs for this service saved the Government an estimated $9.5 million in fiscal year 1974.
