|Survey Item Text|
Please provide the total estimated completion costs of repair or renovation projects of research facilities that started during your FY 2002 or FY 2003. Include only projects whose prorated cost in a given field is estimated to be over $250,000. For multi-year projects, report the entire completion cost even if some of the work will occur in future years.
|If research space will be shared: For repaired or renovated research space that will be shared by two or more fields, estimate the portion of the cost for each field. If space will be used for other purposes in addition to S&E research, estimate the costs for the research portion of the space. Report projects with shared costs only if costs are prorated at more than $250,000 for the field. For example, if a $600,000 project included $400,000 for mathematics space and $200,000 for physics space, the $200,000 portion would not be reported. Similarly, if a $300,000 project involved space used for research only one-fourth of the time, this project of $75,000 for the research portion would not be included.|
|FY 2005 to present|
Please provide the completion costs for repair and renovations of S&E research facilities that started during your previous or current FY. Include research animal space. Include only projects whose prorated cost was estimated to be $250,000 or more for at least one field of S&E listed below. For multi-year projects, report the entire completion cost even if some of the work will occur in future years.
|If research facilities are shared by two or more fields, allocate the appropriate share of the costs to each field in order to determine which fields to report. For example, if a field will have one-fourth of the costs for a $300,000 project, do not report that field's share, which is $75,000. If a $400,000 project will have two fields with the same costs, do not report either field's portion, which is $200,000.|
|If research facilities are also used for nonresearch activities, report the S&E portion of the costs for the fields listed below. For example, if a facility is used for S&E research one-fourth of the time and instruction the rest of the time, report one-fourth of the completion costs for S&E research facilities.|
|Start date is the date on which the physical work on the repairs or renovations actually began.|
|Completion costs include planning, site preparation, construction, fixed equipment, nonfixed equipment that costs $1 million or more, and building infrastructure such as plumbing, lighting, air exchange, and safety systems either in the building or within 5 feet of the building foundation.|
|Research animal space includes all departmental and central facilities, such as laboratories, housing, and associated support areas, that are subject to local, state, and federal government policies and regulations concerning humane care and use of laboratory animals.|
|Repairs and renovations refer to activities such as fixing up facilities in deteriorated condition, capital improvements on facilities, and conversion of facilities. Do not report building additions and the building out of shell space as renovations since they are reported in this survey under new construction.|
|FY 2005 to present|
|Repairs and renovations are activities such as fixing up facilities in deteriorated condition, capital improvements on facilities, conversion of facilities, and the building out of shell space. Include any repairs or renovations to existing space that are performed in combination with new construction projects. Do not report building additions since they are reported in this survey under new construction.|
|Data are available for the Fiscal Years (FYs) 2003, 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011, 2013, and 2015 surveys.|
|Dollar amounts are in thousands.|
