Federal Funds Survey FY 1994, 1995, and 1996, Vol. 44

Technical Notes

Scope and Method

During the period February through November 1995, a total of 32 Federal agencies and their subdivisions--102 individual respondents--submitted data in response to the National Science Foundation's (NSF) annual Survey of Federal Funds for Research and Development (Federal funds survey), Volume 44, which was distributed in February 1995. The agencies reported their data as obligations and outlays incurred, or expected to be incurred, regardless of when the funds were appropriated or whether they were identified in the respondents' budgets specifically for research and development (R&D) activities.

Only those agencies that had obligations in the variables represented by a particular table appear in that table. For a complete list of the Federal agencies that have been included in the Federal funds survey, refer to Appendix A.
