Metadata Updated: September 26, 2023

The FFRDC Research and Development Survey is the primary source of information on R&D expenditures at federally funded research and development centers (FFRDCs) in the United States. Conducted annually for university-administered FFRDCs since FY 1953 and all FFRDCs since FY 2001, the survey collects information on R&D expenditures by source of funds and types of research and expenses. The survey is an annual census of the full population of eligible FFRDCs. See for the Master Government List of FFRDCs maintained by the National Science Foundation. This dataset includes FFRDC Research and Development Survey assets for 2020.
