My suggestion of the problem above is still true, I believe, in that I think the right answer would have been to get the funding to get this started (which you've done admirably!!!), but to include making it self sufficient (but still free access) after the research period. Up until now, it was never clear to me that it was your intention to run this only for the 2 year research period and then to stop cold turkey (let the Feds do it themselves). If it had been clear, this would have altered many other decisions...
I can't imagine this Congress spending the money to have the Feds do it. It's too bad, because my non-profit "business" plan I pushed in DC three years ago called for making it self sufficient within two years --- which I still believe could have been / could still be done.
