Business Users Although the primary purpose of the survey is to provide accurate R&D statistics for well-informed public policy decisions, business users also benefit from the survey figures, and one of the goals of the redesign is to increase the utility of the information for companies. There is a special obligation to keep the survey relevant to industry users particularly because business personnel spend time answering the annual questionnaire. Firms and trade associations in all industries, whether large or small in terms of R&D performance, are interested in making intra-industry comparisons, as well as comparing other industries’ performance with their own. Each year the NSF and Census Bureau receive many requests for R&D information from business users. Some of the industries where users who have requested information are aerospace, telecommunications, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, chemicals, software, and motor vehicles. In addition to industry researchers who utilize the R&D statistics directly from the NSF Web site and publications, there are many who use the Survey’s tabulations in their own trade reports. Other trade publications that regularly print statistics directly from the Survey include multiple Fortune 500 companies and various trade associations. Unions also consider business R&D statistics relevant to their members’ well-being. R&D statistics also are used by research organizations devoted to the study of industry, R&D, science and technology and related topics. Other Users Research undertaken at universities on innovation and economic growth has VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:53 Apr 22, 2015 Jkt 235001 relied heavily on the detailed R&D time series from the Survey. Research projects that have used R&D statistics obtained from the Survey have been conducted at many colleges and universities. In addition, inquiries are regularly received from the news media. And finally, Internet sites continue to link with the Survey’s results. In summary, each item in the Survey has been the subject of research by someone interested in business R&D performance. Although the consumers of the R&D statistics from the Survey are diverse, there is one common element underlying all the uses of the survey statistics—an attempt to gain a better understanding of some aspect of the nation’s scientific and technological resources. The detailed statistics provided by the Survey are the most complete set of elements for assessing the impact of R&D on business development and the nation’s economy. The total burden estimate for the 2014 BRDIS has increased due to an increase in amount of companies that are receiving the longer Form BRDI–1 from 3,000 to 7,000. The increase in the number of companies receiving form BRDI–1 is the result of lowering the R&D threshold for receiving the longer form from $7 million to $1 million. At the same time the burden on companies receiving the shorter form has been reduced. Prior to 2012 the shorter form (then called Form BRDI–1A) was 32 pages (168 response fields). The current shorter form (Form BRD–1S) is 8 pages (61 response fields). The increase in burden also reflects a slight increase in the total number of companies in the sample from the prior OMB submission. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Frequency: Annually. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C., Sections 182, 224 and 225; NSF Act of 1950. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov.
