In the summer of 1976, the Senate Appropriations Committee requested that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) review EPA's Interagency Energy/Environmental R & D Program. Senate interest in understanding the program in detail and the Budget Office's desire to evaluate alternative approaches to budget review resulted in a commitment on the part of the OEMI senior staff to complete a zero-base budgeting (ZBB) analysis of the proposed fiscal year 1978 budget. This review addressed the full spectrum of the Interagency Program from environmental control technology to health and environmental effects of energy use. Due to severe time constraints it did not, however, directly involve the participation of representatives from the other 16 Federal agencies and departments which are involved in the Interagency Program. This report is, understandably, imperfect. It does, however, include the documentation of the ZBB exercise, the Congressional Budget Office review of that documentation, and a short analysis of the OEMI experience in doing the review and a discussion of the use of ZBB in the government R & D perspective.
