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.
