Academic Science/Engineering: R&D Expenditures, Fiscal Year 1989.
National Science Foundation, Washington, DC.
The data presented in this report were compiled from the National Science Foundation's fiscal year 1989 Survey of Scientific and Engineering Expenditures at Universities and Colleges. Expenditures include science and engineering (S/E) costs for separately budgeted research and development (R&D). This includes all funds expended for activities specifically organized to produce research outcomes and commissioned by an agency either external to the institution or separately budgeted by an organizational unit within the institution. Expenditures are funds actually spent by an institution during its fiscal year. Separately budgeted R&D equipment purchased from current funds includes all research equipment purchased under sponsored research project awards. Capital expenditures for R&D equipment may include fixed or movable furnishings and scientific equipment, facilities integral or ancillary to R&D efforts, or special separate facilities that house S/E apparatus. Capital expenditures also refer to any article of nonexpendable tangible personal property having a useful life of more than 2 years and an acquisition cost of $500 or more per unit. Federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) are R&D-performing organizations that range from the traditional contractor-owned/contractor-operated or government-owned/contractor-operated organizational structures to various degrees of contractor/government control and ownership. These organizations are formed to achieve a particular R&D objective that cannot be met as effectively by existing resources. Data presented in trend tables are assembled from the most recently completed survey cycle. (KR)
