Pursuant to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's (NASA) budgets, focusing on: (1) NASA efforts to reduce or eliminate the gap between its funding requirements and likely budgets; and (2) whether gaps remain between NASA program plans and its likely future budgets. GAO found that: (1) recent events have reopened a gap between NASA program plans and its likely budgets; (2) NASA has not yet developed plans for closing this $5.3-billion gap projected for fiscal years 1996 through 2000; (3) NASA closed the gap GAO reported in 1992 primarily by changing and/or deleting some of its major programs; and (4) as a result of the changes, NASA increased the risks in several of its largest programs.

R285 Discovery Miles 2 850 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

GAO discussed the implementation of the Technology Transfer Act of 1986 and a related executive order, focusing on the: (1) receipt of implementation guidance; (2) establishment and staffing of Offices of Research and Technology Applications (ORTA); (3) delegation of authority to laboratories to enter into cooperative research and development agreements (CRDA); and (4) establishment of personnel incentives to engage in technology transfer activities. GAO noted that: (1) laboratories in 7 of the 10 departments met at least 50 percent of the measures for full implementation; (2) wide variations existed among departments regarding completeness of parent department guidance; (3) only about 40 percent of the large laboratories had fully staffed ORTA located on their premises; (4) only 44 percent of the laboratories had been granted the authority to enter CRDA; (5) most departments failed to establish award programs for technology transfer activities, but established royalty sharing and personnel exchange programs; and (6) the level of implementation of the legislation was uneven across the departments and varied by legislative or executive order provision.

GAO studied the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) to examine the extent to which OSTP studied the 13 issues on federal organization and management of science and technology policy, and to determine the extent of OSTP involvement in strategic planning for science and technology. Top OSTP officials believe that the broad legislative mandate for OSTP cannot be fully met under present conditions and operating styles within the Executive Office of the President (EOP). OSTP management and staff also believe that all their work must be tied to the existing policymaking process in EOP, because they have no independent control over any portion of the U.S. policymaking system. OSTP interprets its environment as requiring it to be continually active in initiating its work and then fostering implementation of its recommendations, many of which demonstrate a strategic perspective. OSTP is most active in its extensive collaboration with the Office of Management and Budget in the research and development budget process.

The Air Force based its Guide on existing NASA policy and procedures with respect to payload risk classification and launch vehicle certification. Payloads are classified based in part on factors such as national significance, payload complexity and cost, and are assigned a risk tolerance level accordingly. The Air Force, NASA, and NRO are working to coordinate and share information to facilitate launch vehicle certification efforts; however, each agency will determine for itself when certification has been achieved. As a result, some duplication and overlap of efforts could occur. The Air Force has also added other prerequisites to certification for new entrants that are not captured within the Guide, such as an approved implementation plan and a cooperative research and development agreement. According to the Air Force, these agreements are legal mechanisms intended to enable data sharing between the Air Force and new entrants, while protecting the interests of both.

R400 Discovery Miles 4 000 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

Pursuant to a legislative requirement, GAO reviewed the effectiveness of royalty-sharing programs established under the Technology Transfer Act, focusing on: (1) federal scientists' interest in reporting inventions before and after the act's passage; and (2) the extent to which agencies' program implementation supports royalty-sharing incentives. GAO found that: (1) royalty-sharing programs at federal laboratories had little impact on scientists' interest in patenting inventions; (2) 14 of 21 agencies showed no improvement in the rate of patenting after the act's passage; (3) the small licensing rate increase provided no incentive to scientists to patent inventions; (4) most inventors received an average of $1,000 in shared royalties; (5) many scientists preferred peer recognition to monetary rewards; and (6) many scientists chose federal employment because it offered more freedom, creativity, and longer time frames for research than private-sector employment. GAO also found that: (1) agencies typically used formulas that gave inventors a small percentage of royalties; (2) many scientists did not know of the royalty-sharing programs, and believed that conflict-of-interest policies would hamper collaboration with industry; (3) many agencies did not capitalize on their inventors' successes to publicize their royalty-sharing programs; (4) agencies did not have adequate systems to ensure that inventors timely received royalty payments; (5) some agencies used the laboratory-share of royalties to pay administrative costs, rather than enhance laboratory research or personnel development; and (6) patenting delayed publication of research results, which was important to scientists' professional recognition.

R339 Discovery Miles 3 390 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

The United States' growing dependence on space systems makes them vulnerable to a range of threats. DOD has undertaken a variety of initiatives to provide space situational awareness (SSA)--the knowledge and characterization of space objects and the environment on which space operations depend. GAO was asked to (1) review key systems being planned and acquired to provide SSA, and their progress meeting cost, schedule, and performance goals; and (2) determine how much an integrated approach is being used to manage and oversee efforts to develop SSA capabilities. To achieve this, GAO analyzed documentation and interviewed key officials on major SSA development efforts and oversight and management of SSA. This report is an unclassified version of a classified report issued in February 2011.

R338 Discovery Miles 3 380 Shipped within 7 - 11 working days

To promote the use of information technology for the electronic exchange of personal health information among providers and other health care entities, Congress passed the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act. It provides incentives intended to promote the widespread adoption of technology that supports the electronic sharing of data among hospitals, physicians, and other health care entities. Pursuant to a requirement in the HITECH Act, GAO is reporting on practices implemented by health information exchange organizations, providers, and other health care entities that disclose electronic personal health information. GAO's specific objectives were to describe (1) the practices implemented for disclosing personal health information for purposes of treatment, including the use of electronic means for obtaining consent, as reported by selected health information exchange organizations, their participating providers, and other entities; and (2) the effects of the electronic sharing of health information on the quality of care for patients as reported by these organizations. To address both objectives, GAO conducted case studies of 4 of more than 60 operational health information exchanges and a selection of each of the exchanges' participating providers.

The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is based on principles of openness and accountability in government. FOIA establishes that federal agencies must provide the public with access to government information, unless the information falls into one of nine specifically exempted categories (for example, certain information compiled for law enforcement purposes). However, agencies can use their discretion to disclose information even if it falls into one of the nine exempted categories; this is known as a discretionary disclosure. At the beginning of a new administration, the Attorney General traditionally issues a policy memorandum regarding FOIA, including policy on discretionary disclosure. Attorney General Ashcroft issued such a memorandum on October 12, 2001, replacing Attorney General Reno's 1993 FOIA memorandum. GAO was asked to determine (1) to what extent, if any, Department of Justice guidance for agencies on FOIA implementation has changed as a result of the new policy; (2) the views of FOIA officers at 25 agencies regarding the new policy and its effects, if any; and (3) the views of FOIA officers at 25 agencies regarding available FOIA guidance.
