Approved For0ease 2003/08IM!rCIA-RDP79-009990300030014-4 STANFORD RESEARCH INSTITUTE MENLO PARK, CALIFORNIA 94025 '415) 326-6200 In response to your request of 27 March 1973, enclosed is a request for an increase in scope of Contract Number 1471(S)73. The goal of the increase in scope is to permit the inclusion of an additional subject (Uri Geller) and an additional professional staff member during the re- maining two-and-one-half month period of FY 1973. The suggested funding rate of the increase in scope is that of the basic contract which covers a similar effort, increasing the overall effort for the remaining period by a factor of two. Experimentation during the additional effort is to focus on providing validation of the phenomena under consideration in terms of sponsor-supplied materials and techniques. In particular, experiments involving the re- trieval of sponsor-controlled information will be carried out in a double- blind procedure using a protocol agreed upon in advance by sponsor and client. In the event of early success which meets sponsor requirements for validation, the remainder of the time shall be devoted to further experi- mentation mutually agreed upon in preparation for an assumed follow-on program. Assuming a significant degree of validation in this experimentation, consideration will be given to the possibility of a demonstration on the East coast, under appropriate conditions, for a group of sponsor-selected individuals. The attached itemized list gives the estimated cost for the increase in scope covered by this letter proposal. H. E.
