Abstract : The principal purpose of providing core funding of the Medical Follow-up Agency (MFUA) is to put it in a more favorable position when it is called on to provide advice on issues of interest to the government. Continued core support will ensure that MFUA, as a part of the Academy carrying out its principal responsibility under its congressional charter, continues to provide scientifically rigorous and, therefore, credible advice to the government in a timely fashion. The specific uses of core support discussed in the report are three: develop new program areas, maintain and update important files and records resources, and modernize existing computer operations.
