Taxonomy Code: TR

Programs that engage in research which involves the investigation, collection and analysis of scientific, demographic and other data with the objective of advancing knowledge in agriculture and the physical, social and life sciences, enhancing our understanding of the major issues which confront our communities and finding solutions to basic human problems. Included are pure basic research (experimental and theoretical work undertaken to acquire new knowledge without looking for long term benefits other than the advancement of knowledge); strategic basic research (experimental and theoretical work undertaken to acquire new knowledge directed into specified broad areas in the expectation of useful discoveries that many be necessary for the solution of recognized practical problems); applied research (original work undertaken primarily to answer a specific question, determine why something failed or succeeded, solve a specific, pragmatic problem or gain better understanding in a particular area); and developmental research (systematic work, using existing knowledge gained from research or practical experience, that is directed to producing new materials, products or devices; installing new processes, systems and services; or improving substantially those already produced or installed).

United States National Archives and Records AdministrationThe National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is the nation's record keeper. Of all documents and materials created in the course of business conducted by the United States Federal government, only 1%-3% are so important for legal or historical reasons that they are kept by us forever. Those valuable records are preserved and are available to you, whether you want to see if they contain clues about your family’s history, need to prove a veteran’s military service, or are researching an historical topic that interests you. Many people know the National Archives as the keeper of the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, and the Bill of Rights. But we also hold in trust for the public the records of ordinary citizens—for example, military records of the brave men and women who have fought for our country, naturalization records of the immigrants whose dreams have shaped our nation, and even the canceled check from the purchase of Alaska. In a democracy, records belong to the people, and for more than seven decades, NARA has preserved and provided access to the records of the United States of America. Records help us claim our rights and entitlements, hold our elected officials accountable for their actions, and document our history as a nation. In short, NARA ensures continuing access to the essential documentation of the rights of American citizens and the actions of their Government.
