Energy Efficiency in Federal Facilities: Update on Funding and Potential Savings

Energy Efficiency in Federal Facilities: Update on Funding and Potential Savings

Date: May 1994
Creator: United States. Congress. Office of Technology Assessment.
Description: There are two longstanding constraints to implementing more energy efficient practices: 1) a shortage of finds to invest in efficient equipment; and 2) a lack of information for program planning and budgeting about the extent of investment opportunities and about the best finding mechanisms. This paper reviews advances made in addressing these constraints since 1991.

Neonatal intensive care for low birthweight infants: costs and effectiveness

Neonatal intensive care for low birthweight infants: costs and effectiveness

Date: December 1987
Creator: United States. Congress. Office of Technology Assessment.
Description: The purpose of this report is to provide OTA with specific information that can be used in forming general conclusions regarding broader policy issues. The first 19 cases in the Health Technology Case Study Series, for example, were conducted in conjunction with OTA’s overall project on The Implications of Cost-Effectiveness Analysis of Medical Technology. By examining the 19 cases as a group and looking for common problems or strengths in the techniques of cost-effectiveness or cost-benefit analysis, OTA was able to better analyze the potential contribution that those techniques might make to the management of medical technology and health care costs and quality.
