Strategic Plan Objectives

Current 2009 projects and their funding status for each question or objective is indicated within the table by colored green dot yellow dot red dot page green dot pale yellow dot dots next to the objective. Expand for moredown arrow

Any objective colored green has greater than or equal to the recommended funding; any objective colored yellow has some degree of funding, but less than the recommended amount; while any objective colored red has no funding.

Objectives whose overarching aim (e.g., the ultimate goal of the research, irrespective of the number of projects or the budget for the objective) were achieved/partially achieved either in a previous year, with less annual funding than was recommended, or with funding that was not captured in the portfolio analyses, are colored pale green/pale yellow

The percentages noted in parentheses in the "Projects" and "Funding" columns indicate the fraction of all projects or funding within that specific question, whereas the percentage in the "Percent of Total ASD Funding" column indicates the percent of the entire ASD research funding portfolio for 2009.

Data includes 2010 funding from Federal/private funders of ASD research and 2010 ARRA funding.
