This Strategic Implementation Plan addresses the federal science and technology contribution to the President's national security strategy, A Strategy of Engagement and Enlargement. This is an integrated, interagency plan. It builds on agency strategy documents where appropriate, and, in turn, provides structure upon which other agency strategies can be built. This plan was developed by the Committee for National Security1 in response to the national security science and technology priorities articulated in a joint Office of Science and Technology Policy/Office of Management and Budget letter ("FY 1996 Research and Development Priorities") of May 6, 1994.

1 The purpose of the Committee for National Security is to advise and assist the National Science and Technology Council to increase the overall effectiveness and productivity of federal efforts in national security research and development. The major goals of the Committee for National Security are to:

Coordinate and integrate national security science and technology plans and investments. This includes identifying gaps and overlaps in program areas to more efficiently support the President's National Security Strategy.

Foster increased operational collaboration among federal agencies participating in national security science and technology development. This includes harmonizing the evolving roles of U.S. agencies in the new national security environment. It also provides an interagency mechanism to help jointly pursue administration priorities.

Help identify national security science and technology priorities for the National Science and Technology Council. This includes identifying agency investments in national security science and technology priority areas and establishing baselines and mechanisms to measure future progress and performance of our national security science and technology investment.
