[[underlined]] DRAFT OF THE FIVE-YEAR PROSPECTUS, FISCAL YEARS 1990-1994 [[/underlined]]

The Secretary introduced a summary of the draft [[underlined]] Five-Year Prospectus [[/underlined]] describing the Smithsonian's plans, including programmatic emphases and resource allocations, from fiscal year 1990 through fiscal year 1994. He expressed the hope that the Regents would give the staff the benefit of their views prior to the preparation of the final draft, which will be presented for the consideration of the Board at its next regularly scheduled meeting.

In contrast to presentations in previous years which had been based on the organizational structure of the Institution, this year the [[underlined]] Prospectus [[/underlined]] is arranged by program activity and has three major components: the Institution's strategic plan; projections of resource requirements to fund programmatic objectives; and the programs planned through fiscal year 1994. The table below details projected operating resources for the next five years.
