Federal R&D Funding, by Budget Function: Fiscal Years 2011–13 [17 January 2013]


[full-text, 39 pages]



This report contains data on the budget authority (see "Definitions," below) of U.S. federal agencies to fund the research and development and R&D plant components of their programs in FYs 2011, 2012, and 2013. All activities covered by the federal budget, including R&D, are classified by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) into 20 broad functional categories (see "Budget Functions and Classifying R&D," below). At present, R&D activities are present in 15 of these categories.


Data tables in this report provide R&D budget authority detail, by agency and major programs, for each of these categories. Several concluding tables also include budget authority figures for R&D in FY 2010 and earlier years.


The figures for FY 2011 are actual budget authority received by the federal agencies for R&D that year. Those for FY 2012 are preliminary, reflecting agency estimates of the final appropriations for the year. The FY 2013 figures are the administration's proposed funding levels, based chiefly on the President's Budget of the United States Government, Fiscal Year 2013, but also reflecting agency documents and other OMB data available through July 2012. These proposed figures for FY 2013 are the basis for subsequent legislative activity in the U.S. Congress to enact the federal government's annual budget.


Data reported here as "proposed" or "preliminary" will be revised in subsequent editions of this report to reflect the later congressional appropriation actions and agency program-funding decisions.
