Federal STI Managers’ Group Brief Introduction CENDI
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
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.
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.
Membership An interagency group composed of senior STI managers: Defense Technical Information Center (Department of Defense) EPA Office of Environmental Information & Office of Research and Development Government Printing Office NASA Scientific and Technical Information Program National Agricultural Library (Department of Agriculture) National Archives and Records Administration National Library of Education (Department of Education) National Library of Medicine (Department of Health and Human Services) National Science Foundation National Technical Information Service (Department of Commerce) Office of Scientific and Technical Information (Department of Energy) USGS Biological Resources Discipline (Department of Interior) ♦7 cabinet departments ♦4 independent agencies 12 major programs 11 U.S. federal agencies

“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
