FFRDC = federally funded research and development center.
a R&D expenditures decreased in FY 2011 due to removal of expenditures for capital projects. In this survey, R&D expenditures do not include capital projects. In previous years, some FFRDCs included capital expenditures in their R&D totals. Previous years include an unknown amount of capital expenditures, estimated to be less than $500 million per year.
b On 1 October 2011, National Astronomy and Ionosphere Center was decertified as an FFRDC.
c On 27 September 2012, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) Alliance to Modernize Healthcare was created.
d Prior to FY 2011, National Security Engineering Center was listed as C3I FFRDC.
e Prior to FY 2013, Systems and Analyses Center was listed as Studies and Analyses Center.
f Prior to FY 2012, Frederick National Laboratory for Cancer Research was listed as National Cancer Institute at Frederick.
g On 2 September 2010, the Judiciary Engineering and Modernization Center was created.
h R&D expenditures reported by Los Alamos National Laboratory decreased in FY 2013 due to the removal of expenditures that were not for R&D as defined by this survey. Previous years include an unknown amount of expenditures not for R&D.
