General Notes

 

This report replaces Federal Science and Engineering Support to Universities, Colleges, and Nonprofit Institutions: FY 2006 (NSF 09-310) released in March 2009. After the close of the FY 2007 survey cycle, the Department of Defense (DOD) discovered a programming error that was made during the FY 2005–07 survey cycles and caused each advanced technology development dollar to be reported twice, as advanced technology development and also as major systems development. These detailed statistical tables contain corrected DOD data for FY 2005–06 and the most up-to-date data for all agencies.

During the production of this report the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 was signed into law. Section 505 of the bill renames the Division of Science Resources Statistics as the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES). The Center retains its reporting line to the Directorate for Social, Behavioral and Economic Sciences within the National Science Foundation. The new name signals the central role of NCSES in the collection, interpretation, analysis, and dissemination of objective data on the science and engineering enterprise.

The data presented in these tables cover all categories of direct federal science and engineering (S&E) support to institutions of higher education in the United States for S&E activities. The 19 agencies listed in these tables provide virtually all federal funding for S&E research and development (R&D) at U.S. universities and colleges. Data are also reported on these agencies' obligations to nonprofit institutions.

The FY 2006 data in this report were submitted by 19 federal agencies, covering the period 1 October 2005 through 30 September 2006. Because of space constraints, data for 10 agencies are often combined and reported in an "other" category in tables that show funding by agency. The 10 agencies are the Agency for International Development; Appalachian Regional Commission; Departments of Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, the Interior, Labor, and Transportation; Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

The following agencies were included in the other category, because they reported obligations in the variables represented by these tables:

Tables 10, 28 and 30 include the Departments of Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, Labor, and Transportation; Agency for International Development; Appalachian Regional Commission; Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

Tables 11 and 20 include the Department of Transportation and Social Security Administration.

Tables 13, 18, and 19 include the Departments of Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, the Interior, Labor, and Transportation; Agency for International Development; Appalachian Regional Commission; Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

Table 16 includes the Departments of Homeland Security and Transportation as well as the Office of Justice Programs.

Table 23 includes the Departments of Labor and Transportation as well as the Office of Justice Programs.

Table 25 includes the Departments of the Interior, Labor, and Transportation as well as the Office of Justice Programs.

Tables 26 and 27 include the Departments of Homeland Security, Housing and Urban Development, the Interior, Labor, and Transportation; Agency for International Development; Nuclear Regulatory Commission; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

Table 33 includes the Departments of the Interior and Labor as well as the Office of Justice Programs.

Table 34 includes the Departments of Commerce, Homeland Security, the Interior, Labor, and Transportation; Agency for International Development; Environmental Protection Agency; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

Table 35 includes the Departments of Commerce and Interior.

Table 36 includes the Departments of Commerce, the Interior, Labor, and Transportation; Agency for International Development; Environmental Protection Agency; Office of Justice Programs; and Social Security Administration.

The detailed agency-specific data are available from the National Science Foundation upon request. In FY 2006, the 19 agencies reported obligations to 1,179 universities and colleges, 50 academic system offices, and 1,325 independent nonprofit institutions. Every academic system has a system office, but several of the system offices were not reported as directly receiving obligations in FY 2006.

Because of rounding, data in the text or tables may not add to the totals or subtotals shown. Reported obligations were rounded to the nearest thousand dollars by the submitting agency.
