The LULI Director relies on, apart from a Deputy Director and a Technical Director ("Management" team), a lab council for everyday matters. Each facility (laser and experimental) in operation has a facility manager and an operating team. Each project has a proejct manager and a dedicated project team. The technical and administrative staff, not directly assigned to any of the above-mentioned teams, is deployed in support technical groups according to their profession. The research staff is also deployed in research teams.
The laser beamtime is allocated by an external and independant Program Committee on a annual basis; only a few weeks (3-4 per year) is reserved by the Management team for its scientific policy.
A Governing body is deciding on the operation budget of the infrastructure, relying on recommendations taken by a Financial Follow-up Committee, and of the experimental program on the facilities, taking into account the selection done by the Program Committee; it is also monitoring the on-going projects.
