The Annual Supplement to the President's Budget (referred to as the Blue Book until FY 2005), which is required by law, summarizes the goals and objectives of the IT R&D Program and highlights many of the Program's accomplishments and plans.
The NCO NITRD is committed to the idea that data is a valuable national resource and a strategic asset. The NCO NITRD will strive to make appropriate data available, discoverable, and usable, in open machine-readable formats that can be retrieved, downloaded, indexed, and searched.
The CPS SSG is to coordinate programs, budgets, and policy recommendations for Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) research and development (R&D).
Cyber Physical Systems Vision Statement
The NITRD Program provides a framework in which many Federal agencies come together to coordinate their networking and information technology (IT) research and development (R&D) efforts.
The Program operates under the aegis of the NITRD Subcommittee of the National Science and Technology Council's (NSTC) Committee on Technology. The Subcommittee, made up of representatives from each of NITRD's member agencies, provides overall coordination for NITRD activities.
Federal IT R&D, which launched and fueled the digital revolution, continues to drive innovation in scientific research, national security, communication, and commerce to sustain U.S. technological leadership. The NITRD agencies' collaborative efforts increase the overall effectiveness and productivity of these Federal R&D investments, leveraging strengths, avoiding duplication, and increasing interoperability of R&D products.

The NITRD Program has its focus on the following research areas:
The National Coordination Office (NCO) supports the national Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program by providing technical expertise, planning and coordination and by serving as the Program's central point of contact.
The NCO continuously seeks to enhance its ability to be a catalyst for collaboration, exchange of information, and outreach to foster knowledge, methods, R&D, technology transfer, and innovation for U.S. global leadership in networking and information technology and its applications.
Accountability, dedication, integrity, and responsibility are the core values that underlie NCO's efforts to serve as a catalyst for the networking and information technology research and development community. More...
NITRD NCO is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr. Peter Lyster as its new Deputy Director.

Smart Cities and Connected Communities Framework
This framework is to help coordinate Federal agency investments and outside collaborations that will guide foundational research and accelerate the transition into scalable and replicable Smart City approaches. The NITRD Cyber Physical Systems (CPS) Senior Steering Group (SSG) developed this framework of Federal Smart Cities activities to include the entire pipeline from research and development to deployment of new tech-driven approaches in cities; and is working to include agency-specific goals and is beginning to plan next steps for Federal action... more
