Abstract : The Federal Contract Research Centers (FCRCs) are a group of special nonprofit organizations created during and since World War II. Based on their principal efforts, they are categorized as: (1) General and continuing research and experimentation in support of military research and development; (2) systems planning, systems engineering, and technical direction of systems development; and (3) operations analysis, systems analysis, general advice and analysis, and long-range military planning. The study responds to the recommendation of the Blue Ribbon Defense Panel Report on Federal Contract Research Centers (FCRCs). The special Study Group formed for this purpose has completed its task and presents here its findings, conclusions and recommendations.
