WASHINGTON ­— Harvard, MIT, and a coalition of other powerhouse research institutions have thwarted a reform proposal by the Obama administration to slash the amount of government research money each school receives for overhead costs.


The result is that about $10 billion a year, roughly a quarter of the nation's university research budget, will continue to be channeled into such things as administrative salaries and building depreciation instead of directly into scientific studies.


Critics say the system lacks accountability, unfairly rewards the biggest schools, and is an ineffective use of taxpayer research dollars in an era of fiscal austerity.
