Abstract : Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) Policy Letter 84-1, "Federally Funded Research and Development Centers (FFRDCs)," as implemented by part 35.017 of the Federal Acquisition Regulation, provides Government wide policy for the establishment, use, periodic review, and termination of FFRDCs. This policy requires agencies to rely on existing in house or contractor resources, to the extent practical, for satisfying special research or technical requirements. This audit was performed as part of the Special Audit of Federally Funded Research and Development Centers requested by the Office of Federal Procurement Policy and the House Appropriations Committee. The DoD sponsors 11 FFRDCs with annual operating costs of about $1.5 billion. This report was issued because the Army proposed to expand significantly the operations of the Institute for Advanced Technology at the University of Texas at Austin during FY 1992 through FY 1994.
