Federal research and development : budgeting and priority-setting issues, 107th Congress by Genevieve Johanna Knezo( Book )

27 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 254 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Federal research and development (R & D) funding priorities change over time, reflecting Presidential policies and national needs. Defense R & D predominated in the 1980s, decreasing to about 50% of federal R & D in the 1990s. In non-defense R & D, space R & D was important in the 1960s as the nation sought to compete with the Soviet Union; energy R & D was a priority during the energy-short 1970s, and, since the 1980s, health R & D has predominated in civilian science. Defense R & D and homeland security R & D funding are also priorities

Homeland security and counterterrorism research and development : funding, organization, and oversight by Genevieve Johanna Knezo( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2004 in English and held by 112 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questions concerning whether the government is adequately prepared to conduct research and development (R & D) to counter terrorism have focused on priority-setting, coordination, and the need to link R & D to terrorist threats. Since September 11, 2001, planning and coordination mechanisms have been developed in the White House₂s Office of Homeland Security (OHS) and Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP), and in individual agencies. P.L. 107-296, the Homeland Security Act of 2002 (H.R. 5005) consolidates some federal R & D programs in a new Department of Homeland Security (DHS). DHS₂s R & D funding responsibilities are estimated to total over $800 million annually. Funds have not yet been appropriated for DHS for FY2003. P.L. 107-305 (H.R. 3394), funds new cybersecurity R & D to deal with terrorist attacks. Current policy issues focus on implementation, and deal with coordination of prioritysetting between DHS, other agencies, and existing R & D coordination bodies; and mechanisms for congressional oversight of homeland security and counterterrorism R & D.

P.L. 107-296 Homeland Security Act, consolidated some research and development (R & D) in the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), whose FY2007 R & D budget (excluding management/procurement) was requested at $1.1 billion, about 10% less than FY2006, and represents the first decline in DHS s R & D funding since the agency started funding R & D in 2002. DHS is mandated to coordinate all federal agency homeland security R & D, which was requested at about $5.1 billion. Legislation to improve implementation of DHS s R & D programs includes H.R. 1817, H.R. 4941, H.R. 4942, and H.R. 5814. Policy issues relating to DHS s R & D include priority-setting, eliminating possible waste in research and technology programs, and improving program performance results. This report will be updated
"Sensitive but unclassified" and other federal security controls on scientific and technical information : history and current controversy by Genevieve Johanna Knezo( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 31 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The U.S. Government has always protected scientific and technical information that might compromise national security. Since the 2001 terrorist attacks, the government has widened controls on access to information and scientific components that could threaten national security. The policy challenge is to balance science and security without compromising national security, scientific progress, and constitutional and statutory protections. This report summarizes (1) provisions of the Patent Law; Atomic Energy Act; International Traffic in Arms Control regulations; the USA PATRIOT Act, P.L. 107- 56; the Public Health Security and Bioterrorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002, P.L. 107-188; and the Homeland Security Act, P.L. 107-296, that permit governmental restrictions on either privately generated or federally owned scientific and technical information that could harm national security; (2) the evolution of federal definitions for "sensitive but unclassified" (SBU) information; (3) controversies about White House policy directives on federal SBU and "Sensitive Homeland Security Information" (SHSI); and (4) policy options. Even before the terrorist attacks of 2001, federal agencies used the label SBU to safeguard from public disclosure information that does not meet standards for classification in Executive Order 12958 or National Security Decision Directive 189. New Executive Order 13292 might widen the scope of scientific and technological information to be classified to deter terrorism. SBU has not been defined in statutory law, in using the term, some agencies refer to definitions for controlled information, such as "sensitive," in the Computer Security Act, and to information exempt from disclosure in the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) and the Privacy Act.

Possible impacts of major counter terrorism security actions on research, development, and higher education by Genevieve Johanna Knezo( )

3 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 20 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Congress, the executive branch, and scientific and technical communities have adopted and are considering research and development (R & D) and education related security measures to counteract terrorism. There is widespread agreement on the need for these measures, but some experts say that they could have unintended consequences. Some of these actions are included in the PATRIOT/USA Act, P.L. 107-56; in addition the Office of Homeland Security, federal agencies, and the scientific and technical community have proposed or taken other actions. Activities relating to higher education (in H.R. 3525, S. 1749, and other bills) include controlling the visa entry and educational programs of foreign students and tracking their movement through the higher education system. Activities relating to limiting access to scientific and technical information include controlling access to R & D laboratories, self-policing, classification and reclassification of already released materials, withdrawal of information from federal agency websites, possible additional exemptions to the Freedom of Information Act, (FOIA) and withholding information categorized as ₃sensitive but unclassified.₄ Legislative proposals dealing with access to biological agents that could be used by terrorists appear in H.R. 3448, S. 1765, H.R. 3160, S. 1635, H.R. 3457, and S. 1764. These include proposals to register owners of potentially toxic biological and chemical agents; to inventory laboratories that conduct research using pathogenic biological agents; to limit access to R & D laboratories and biological research agents; and to give tax preferences to firms that develop tools to deal with bioterrorism
Technology assessment in Congress : history and legislative options by Genevieve Johanna Knezo( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Congress created the Office of Technology Assessment (OTA) in 1972, P.L. 92-484, and terminated its funding in 1995. The pros and cons of reviving OTA or recreating a similar body have been examined. Since 2002, at congressional direction, the Government Accountability Office (GAO, formerly the General Accounting Office) conducted two pilot technology assessments and is completing two others. Legislation was proposed during the 108th Congress to restore OTA's funding (H.R. 125); create an entity to conduct assessments for Congress (H.R. 6 as passed in the Senate); conduct technology assessments in GAO (report language on H.R. 2657, H.R. 4755, and S. 2666); and create a technology assessment capability in GAO (S. 2556) or under its direction (H.R. 4670). Policy issues under discussion include the need for assessments, funding, the utility of GAO's technology assessment-related reports, and options for institutional arrangements.
