The Committee’s feedback on NIST’s strategic direction, performance and policies is critical to help ensure that NIST is well-positioned to stimulate technological innovation and U.S. competitiveness well into the future and encourages continuous improvement in key areas in the overall operation of NIST. Over the past few years, the Committee has been active in shaping NIST’s strategic planning process and assessing the strengths of its programs. The Committee also reviews and provides comments on NIST’s Three-Year Programmatic Plan. During FY2011, the Committee has focused on NIST’s management priorities; the delivery and development of NIST’s measurement services; and NIST’s role in forensic science, cybersecurity, advanced manufacturing, the President’s Wireless Innovation Initiative and other national priorities. ffed3714-8b24-4114-877e-cac9a610b444 Recommandations Not Available 1a300d13-d0e3-4fc2-9172-90d0b9b56528 Make, Accept, Implement 8e382b1d-d157-4ce1-a66c-b43ffcc55b20 d652822c-d397-415a-9af5-7d48844cb624 Recommendations Made Number Visiting Committee on Advanced Technology Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 In March 2011, the Committee issued its 2010 Annual Report which included 15 specific recommendations suggesting NIST action to be taken in such areas as measurement services, forensic sciences, planning and evaluation, and research directions.
