1 Federal STI Managers’ Group Brief Introduction CENDI

2 What is CENDI? ♦Interagency group of senior federal scientific and technical information (STI) managers who agree to cooperate by ♦Exchanging information and ideas ♦Sharing resources ♦Undertaking joint initiatives ♦From policy to standards to operations ♦Agencies manage over 96% of the $ 127B federal R&D budget

3 Agency Challenges ♦ Budget ♦ Personnel needs ♦ Specialized expertise ♦ Access to contractors ♦ Technology change ♦ Increasing user expectations ♦ Policy directions ♦ Administrative requirements

4 Vision Federal STI agencies will have a cooperative enterprise where capabilities are shared and challenges are faced together so that the sum of the accomplishments is greater than each individual agency can achieve on its own.

5 Mission CENDI’s mission is to help improve the productivity of federal science- and technology-based programs through effective scientific, technical, and related information support systems.

17 “Without groups like [CENDI], the Information Infrastructure Initiative would have ended up a network looking for an application; CENDI provides the policy focus for both general STI needs and the specific applications in health, space, energy, defense, and insight into the needs of industry.” -Lewis M. Branscomb Then Director of the Science, Technology, and Public Policy Program of the JFK School of Government at Harvard
