Effectiveness of Smithsonian Science Information Exchange Hampered by Lack of Complete, Current Research Information.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The Smithsonian Science Information Exchange is intended to be a clearinghouse for information on current research in physical, biological, and social sciences. The information is compiled to facilitate more effective planning and coordination of research and development programs sponsored by Federal funds. This report informs the Congress of a situation in which failure on the part of Federal agencies to report all pertinent information to the Exchange is hindering the effective coordination of Federal research programs. It is recommended that the role of the Exchange should be evaluated by the Office of Management and Budget, and if it is decided to continue the Exchange, Federal agencies should be required to submit pertinent, timely information about their research projects to the Exchange.
