The function of a consultancy and its inter-relationships with other organizations are used as the basis of a mathematical model which answers diverse questions about the consultancy. The techniques used for predicting how much money the consultancy will allocate, at particular meetings, to research and how much money it should expect to spend on research are discussed. Likelihood ratio criteria are derived for two models proposed for the effects of outliers in time series. The first model considers that an outlier does not affect subsequent observations, whereas the second considers that subsequent observations are affected.
