Summary

A special commission told the Smithsonian Institution this week that it needs to bolster its science budget and improve its oversight of basic research. The report, assembled by an independent 18-member group that included six institution scientists, was requested in May 2001 by the Smithsonian's Board of Regents after the institution's new secretary, Lawrence Small, advocated sweeping changes in research programs.
