The Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program's member agencies coordinate their NITRD research activities and plans by Program Component Areas (PCAs) or program focus areas. For each PCA, agency representatives meet in an Interagency Working Group (IWG) to exchange information and collaborate on research plans and activities such as testbeds, workshops, and cooperative solicitations.
The Wireless Spectrum Research and Development Senior Steering Group (WSRD SSG) was established in 2010 to assist the Secretary of Commerce in creating and implementing a plan to facilitate research, development, experimentation, and testing to explore innovative spectrum-sharing technologies. Such an effort was called for by the June 28, 2010, Presidential Memorandum: Unleashing the Wireless Broadband Revolution. Some 16 agencies participate in the WSRD SSG, which is convened under the auspices of the NITRD Program. The group is co-chaired by Mr. Byron Barker (National Telecommunications and Information Administration) and Dr. Andrew Clegg (National Science Foundation).
