InfoBase Rolls Out DoD Budget Service
Centreville, VA. Sept. 28, 2004 -- InfoBase Publishers, Inc. proudly announces the debut of the Budget/RDDS (Research and Development Descriptive Summaries) service, the most powerful tool ever made publicly available for analyzing the Pentagon's research, development, test and engineering (RDT&E) appropriation.
The Budget/RDDS service contains detailed individual information on the more than 800 Program Elements (PEs) contained in the President's FY05 budget submission.
Search tools provide the ability to search PEs by military service, by keyword, by budget activity, and by funding levels for fiscal years FY03-FY09. The service supports trend analysis and the ability to analyze a company's R&D pipeline (either at the corporate, sector, or business unit level) or spending at individual agencies/commands. Information is exportable to spreadsheet format.
Budget/RDDS also contains thousands of proprietary linkages to information on companies, customers, and programs contained in InfoBase's flagship product, the Defense/Aerospace Competitive Intelligence Service (DACIS).
"By databasing the Pentagon's FY05 budget submission, we've provided a level of usefulness unmatched by any other budget product," said InfoBase Publishers president and founder Stuart McCutchan. "And on top of that, our analysts have done something that nobody else could do—leveraged our DACIS product by linking individual PEs with the specific business units and customer agencies/commands associated with them."
McCutchan concluded: "The goal, as with all of our products, is to place superior tools in the hands of decision makers charged with understanding this vast and growing marketplace."
