The purpose of our review was to determine whether the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA's) Office of Research and Development (ORD) manages its indirect and overhead costs appropriately to maximize available funding for research and development activities. ORD is organized into three national laboratories, four national centers, and six offices located in 14 facilities around the country and in Washington, DC. ORD also operates 12 national research programs each headed by a National Program Director. The national research programs provide the science to support EPA's goals as outlined in EPA's strategic plan and ORD's strategic plan.
