To fulfill our Research and Development (R&D) requirements for the Fiscal Year 2007 Budget Justification, please submit the requested information no later than December 9, 2005. The R&D information submitted will be used to construct the R&D Section of the Bureau's annual Budget Justification document, which we understand will be prepared in December 2005. The R&D Information for the Budget Justification is needed from each Bureau of Land Management State Office and Center. For complete instructions on preparing this information see Attachment 1. Please use the Excel file (Attachment 2) provided to electronically submit your tabular information. It is important that only the three worksheets in Attachment 2 be used to ensure Bureau-wide consistency.   Attachment 3 provides definitions of Research and Development for your use in preparing this information.   In addition to electronically submitting Attachment 2, please submit short paragraphs describing four or five project examples for your State or Center for us to include in the Budget Justification. Attachments 4 and 5 provide examples of the required information.
 
The information you provide will also be used to fulfill other reporting requirements for the Office of Management and Budget, the National Science Foundation and the Department R&D Council. We hope that having this information available in this format, along with example project narratives, will reduce the number of data calls imposed on the field. 

If you need additional information, please call John Haugh at 202-452-5071 or Sterling White at 202-452-5136. Thank you in advance for your assistance in fulfilling this request.
