National Science Foundation and Office of Science and Technology Policy: accompanying report of the National Performance Review
A look at agencies with major responsibilities in science and technology reveals that they have many issues in common. This report suggests a structure for addressing R & D priorities as well as matters of research administration which are relevant to the wider federal R & D community. This structure involves the President's Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP). OSTP was created by the National Science and Technology Policy. Organization, and Priorities Act of 1976 to provide advice to the President on issues relating to science and to coordinate federal efforts in science and technology. The Act also established the Federal Coordinating Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (FCCSET). FCCSET, with representation from all agencies with significant scientific research activities, coordinates selected interagency research initiatives.
