"Technical reports describe the results and findings of research and development projects and other DOE-funded activities. For direct-procurement type awards, technical reports are formal documents usually identified as required reporting deliverables and may cover a specified time frame referred to as the reporting period. For major site/facility contractors, in addition to formal reports, these may be any technical document that contains technical information useful to others, including the results of research determined not appropriate or rejected for open literature publication."
