EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD) has requested SAB advice on the Agency’s science and research program planned investment levels for Fiscal Year 2010. ORD has asked the SAB to consider whether the science and research activities included in the Fiscal Year 2010 budget align with the strategic program priorities identified by EPA’s research, national program, and regional offices; how well EPA’s science programs coordinate with the science efforts of other governmental organizations and relevant organizations outside of government; and whether EPA’s science programs are positioned to address the nation's emerging environmental issues in the coming years.
