About the National Science and Technology Council
        President Clinton established the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC) by Executive Order on November 23, 1993.  This cabinet-level council is the principal means for the President to coordinate science, space and technology policies across the Federal Government.   NSTC acts as a "virtual" agency for science and technology (S&T).  The President chairs the NSTC.  Membership consists of the Vice President, Assistant to the President for Science and Technology, Cabinet Secretaries and Agency Heads with significant S&T responsibilities, and other White House officials.

         Through the NSTC, Federal departments and agencies work cooperatively to ensure that Federal science and technology investments support national goals.  NSTC Committees prepare R&D strategies that are coordinated across the Federal government to form a comprehensive investment package.

        This report was prepared for the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), by Holly Gwin, Acting, NSTC Executive Secretary, Sheri Thornton Brown, NSTC Policy Analyst, and Linda Johnson, Administrative Assistant.
