Abstract : This document contains a catalog of cost research projects discussed at the IDA Cost Research Symposium held on 22 May 1997. Participants included representatives of offices and organizations that sponsor and conduct the research. The purpose of this annual symposium is to facilitate the exchange of research findings and other information in order to avoid wasteful duplication of effort and enhance each organization's ability to conduct research planning for the future. Each project summary included in this document presents the project title, a descriptive summary, classification, sponsor, performer, researchers, schedule, data bases, publications, and keywords. The research directors of the offices and organizations that participated report that catalogs associated with prior symposia (1989 through 1996) have been useful in facilitating the exchange of data, data sources, findings, and reports, thereby contributing to improved efficiency in the cost analysis function within the Department of Defense.
