This report fulfills PCAST's responsibilities under Executive Order 13539 and the High-Performance Computing Act of 1991, as amended by the Next Generation Internet Research Act of 1998 and by the America COMPETES Act of 2007.

PCAST finds that the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Program NITRD is well coordinated and that the U.S. computing research community, coupled with a vibrant NIT industry, has made seminal discoveries and advanced new technologies that are helping to meet many societal challenges. Importantly, however, PCAST also found that:

a substantial fraction of the NITRD multi-agency spending summary represents spending that supports R&D in other fields, rather than spending on R&D in the field of NIT itself. As a result, the United States is actually investing far less in NIT R&D than the $4 billion-plus indicated in the Federal budget. To achieve America's priorities and advance key research frontiers to support economic competitiveness in NIT, this report calls for a more accurate accounting of this national investment and recommended additional investments in NIT R&D, including research in networking and information technology for health, energy and transportation, and cyber-infrastructure.[1]
