Abstract:

The National Science and Technology Council (NSTC), a cabinet-level group charged with setting federal technology policy, coordinates R&D strategies across a broad cross-section of public and private interests. It has established nine research and development committees, including the Committee on Civilian Industrial Technology (CCIT), to collaborate with the private sector in developing a comprehensive national technology policy. The purpose of CCIT is to enhance the international competitiveness of U.S. industry through federal technology policies and programs. The Subcommittee on Construction and Building (C&B) of CCIT coordinates and defines priorities for Federal research, development and deployment related to the industries that produce, operate and maintain constructed facilities, including buildings and infrastructure.
