Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)/Office of Management and Budget (OMB), Memorandum on FY 2007 Administration R&D Budget Priorities (July 8, 2005) (full-text).

Overview Edit

In a July 2005 memorandum entitled “Administration R&D Budget Priorities for FY 2007,” the Directors of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) identified cyber security R&D as an FY 2007 budget priority that should receive special focus at the interagency level. Cyber security and information assurance R&D falls squarely at the intersection of homeland security R&D and networking and information technology R&D, which are both highlighted as broad interagency R&D priorities.

The budget guidance memo cites cyber security R&D as one of three priority areas in the $3-billion Federal Networking and Information Technology Research and Development Program (NITRD), along with high-end computing and advanced networking, “due to their potential for broad impact.” The memo states: “Reflecting the importance of cyber security, agencies should continue to work through the NSTC to generate a detailed gap analysis of R&D funding in this area.” While not called out explicitly under Homeland Security R&D, cyber security and information assurance are also technological requirements of many priority homeland security capabilities cited in the memorandum.
