This testimony compilation is from the September 8, 2016 hearing, "Closing the Talent Gap in Federal IT," before the House Subcommittee on Information Technology. From the statement of Joan Ferrini-Mundy: "NSF [National Science Foundation] has a longstanding commitment to supporting research that drives scientific discovery, maintains America's global competitiveness, and builds the modern workforce that is critical for addressing the complex challenges that face the Nation. Within NSF, the mission of the EHR [Education and Human Resources] directorate is to provide the research foundation to develop a science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM)-literate public and a diverse STEM workforce ready to lead science, engineering, and innovation for the future. Several NSF-supported programs have a key role in closing the talent gap in Federal information technology, and in the information technology (IT) workforce more generally. Here I highlight the NSF's CyberCorps: Scholarship for Service (SFS) and Advanced Technological Education (ATE) programs in detail, and mention several other areas of investment that are critical to the development of the high-tech STEM workforce. I also will address NSF's contribution toward engaging, encouraging, and supporting a longer-term solution to the need for a larger and well-prepared Federal and national IT workforce of the future." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Joan Ferrini-Mundy, Scott Montgomery, Gene Bowman, and Emile Cambry.
