Thank you, Brian. Our fiscal year does run October - September so we didn't
think that factor would have the effect in this state that it might in
others. I guess I'm just a little concerned about the usefulness of the
reports to either whip us on to do better in particular areas or to toot our
horn in others . . .

Valerie et al,

These discrepancies pop up all the time, and I suspect the main culprit is
that the feds are on a different calendar year/fiscal year than moist of the
universities. Our FY runs from July to June, but the feds go from Oct -
Sept.  Thus, in any given year, depending on when awards are made, one will
be over or under the other's report level.

Good Morning --

Does anyone out there check the accuracy of the Federal support reported in
the NSF publication "Federal Science & Engineering Support to Universities,
Colleges & Nonprofit Institutions" and how do you resolve discrepancies? We
are looking at the FY1999 report (the latest) and noticed on Table B-17,
"Federal Obligations for Science & Engineering Research & Development (R&D
to Universities & Colleges by State, Institution, and Agency"), that there
are several discrepancies that we can't explain. (It is my understanding
that this information is provided by the funding agency, not our
university.) In one instance, the funding agency is reporting $9M less than
we know we received in FY'99 and in another the agency is reporting that we
received about $1.5M more than we know we received in FY'99.

Enlighten is always appreciated! Thanks!
