The National Science and Technology Council's Subcommittee on Standards (SOS) is an inter-agency forum for senior officials of federal agencies to consider and address critical standards-related issues, including:
- Supporting U.S. standards policy as defined in the National Technology Transfer and Advancement Act of 1995 (NTTAA) and Office of Management and Budget Circular A-119 by working with federal agencies and established interagency groups along with the U.S. private sector to articulate the strengths of the U.S. approach to standards setting.
- Enabling responsive and timely coordination among federal agencies for more effective federal agency engagement relating to the development and use of standards.
- Improving awareness of best practices and lessons learned among U.S. government leadership, particularly to help address standards related questions in areas of national priority.
- Improving awareness and understanding across federal agencies about how standards facilitate meeting procurement needs and regulatory policy and guidance goals, while enabling technology development and innovation.
