Audit of the Department of Energy's Management of Research and Development Integration
The Congress, independent task forces, and advisory groups have pointed out the need for the Department to improve its integration of research and development (R&D) projects. In the past, R&D management was carried out by different program offices with the research being performed both internally and externally to the Department. We conducted this audit to determine whether the Department had a system in place to integrate R&D projects.
