Science of Science Policy

Background

Background

  • SOSP Roadmap and workshop

    • Data module

    • Input on data infrastructure

  • Data Infrastructure working group

    • NSF, NIH, IRS, BEA

    • January “next steps” memo

  • The new importance of science in economic growth

    • America COMPETES

    • ARRA

    • Congressman Holt’s letter


Illustrative challenges

Illustrative challenges

  • Current data system for program administration, not management information

  • Limited linkage of inputs and outcomes

  • No detail on individual students (RA’s, grads and undergrads) supported by grants

  • Annual and final reports not in structured format

  • => Robinson Crusoe decision


Example estimating job creation

Example: Estimating Job Creation

  • Identifying informed respondent

    • HR?

    • Finance?

    • SRO?

  • Identifying appropriate concept

    • What is a job

    • What is a “created” job

    • What is due to stimulus, given churn in jobs

  • Getting good estimate

    • Experience with employment surveys

  • Burden and confusion


Possible approach

Possible approach

  • Automatically generate job creation measures

    • Create administrative tracking system

      • Existing payroll management systems

      • Unemployment insurance wage records

    • External validation and accountability

      • Credible researchers (not Fed estimates)

      • External tagging


Possible approach1

Possible approach

  • Work with willing agencies

  • Pilot with some academic institutions

    - Federal Demonstration Project

  • Pilot with some HR packages

    • E.g Peoplesoft

  • Develop useful and interesting end products

1. “products” to get buy in

2. Administrative measures of job creation (and earnings) on flow basis

Other key issues with arra

Other key issues with ARRA

  • Agencies overloaded with reporting requirements

  • Recipients overloaded with reporting requirements

  • Financial reporting is top priority


Broader vision

Broader vision

  • Create science policy data infrastructure

    • Leverage existing systems to minimize burden

    • Create flow estimates of awards, outcomes within a single administrative system

    • Match to other administrative and survey data in secure environment (e.g. student flows to firms, PI activities; firm outcomes: patents; r&d tax credits; IPOs)

    • Generate consistent, evidence based, open and transparent estimates of economic and societal impact

    • Cumulate impacts over time and by discipline


Next steps partnership

Next steps: partnership

  • Pilot on developing administrative data infrastructure (role for FDP)

    • Developing functional specs

    • Test team of 4-6 FDP members

    • We will come to your institution for discussion

  • Agency support

    • Everyone please complete and send the Survey back

    • We need to have the Test Team identified by 5/27
