Statement of Purpose

    The NSTC Committee on Technology provides overall technology policy, program, and budget guidance  and direction for the Executive Branch.  Composed of senior-level representatives from the Federal government's research and development (R&D) departments and agencies, the Committee advises and assists the NSTC to increase the overall effectiveness and productivity of Federal R&D efforts in technology. The Committee addresses significant national policy matters which cut across agency boundaries and provides a formal mechanism for interagency policy coordination and development of Federal technology activities.  The Committee places a particular emphasis on the promotion of technology partnerships to more efficiently leverage Federal R&D budgets.  Partnership programs under the auspices of the Committee include the Partnership for the Next Generation of Vehicles, the U.S. Innovation Partnership, the Partnership for Advanced Technology in Housing, and programs in Computing, Information, and Communications as authorized under the High Performance Computing Act of 1991.
