Abstract : The purpose of the study is to determine the effects of a decrement in the level of financing of R and D projects by the federal government upon research organizations and upon the local regional economy. Specifically, there is developed a computer simulation model to investigate the dynamic effects of budget documents on the research organization and the economy in which it is located. A flow chart to be incorporated in a computer program is presented. (Author)
