The goal of this project was to validate the results of the Interagency Screening Tool created by the National Science and Technology Council Subcommittee on Critical and Strategic Mineral Supply Chains in order to improve its ability to detect for potential material criticality as tool helps to create policies that effect critical materials. We worked with the Office of Energy Policy and Systems Analysis in the Department of Energy to research historic cases of material market anomalies, that were compared the toolÂ’s results, and used to find new avenues for determining potential material criticality. The gathered data allowed suggestions for the methodology, interface, and scope of the tool to be created into order to improve performance and usability of the tool.
