Improving S&T Enterprise stewardship supports the President’s Management Agenda by recognizing the value of effectively and efficiently accessing and transferring federally funded R&D resources and discoveries to improve American welfare. Efforts to improve decision-making and increase government accountability and efficiency also align with numerous Administration priorities, including leveraging data as a strategic asset (CAP Goal 2) and improving technology transfer (CAP Goal 14), among others.
