Overview Edit

The National Coordinating Office (NCO) coordinates the activities of the NITRD Program. On July 1, 2005, the NCO became the National Coordination Office (NCO) for Networking and Information Technology Research and Development. The Director of the NCO reports to the Director of the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP).

The NCO supports the Subcommittee on NITRD (also called the NITRD Subcommittee)[1] and the President's Information Technology Advisory Committee (PITAC). This includes helping to identify research needs by coordinating interagency meetings as well as conferences and workshops with academia and industry. This office is aids information dissemination by publishing reports, including reports produced by the PITAC, and the annual supplements to the President’s budget.
