Abstract:

This report, in laying out a framework within which changes to the federal RDTE infrastructure can be accomplished and around which debate about the need for those changes can occur, 1 examines the condition of existing infrastructure, 2 analyzes the approaches used by organizations outside of the federal government to realign RDTE infrastructure, and 3 compares those approaches to federal agency efforts. This approach, if implemented fully by federal agencies, could help focus agencies efforts in research and development, reduce unneeded infrastructure government-wide, and free up resources necessary for scientific programs and related equipment.
