Networking & Information Technology R&D Program and National Artificial Intelligence Initiative Office: Supplement to the President's FY2022 Budget [open pdf - 2MB]
From the Introduction: "In the High-Performance Computing Act of 1991, Congress launched what is now called the Networking and Information Technology Research and Development (NITRD) Program; Congress has reauthorized and expanded the NITRD Program three times, most recently in the 2017 American Innovation and Competitiveness Act. NITRD celebrates 30 years of innovation and collaboration in December 2021. The NITRD Program's mandate is to coordinate high-impact Federal R&D [research and development] that identifies, develops, and transitions into use the secure, advanced capabilities in HPC [high performance computing], IT [information technology], networking, and software that the Federal Government needs, and to foster vibrant public-private R&D partnerships so that, working together, American scientists, policies, and facilities can capably provide the world-leading IT technologies on which the Nation depends. The Program also seeks to build, support, and leverage a diverse, highly skilled S&T [science and technology] workforce and international alliances. [...] This report meets NITRD's obligation to submit to Congress annually a Supplement to the President's Budget in which member agencies describe their R&D budget requests and programs and activities for the coming fiscal year in HPC, IT, and networking. The report also addresses how the NITRD Program and its members plan to support the S&T priorities of the President and OSTP [Office of Science and Technology Policy][.]" An appendix to this report, "FY2022 Federal Cybersecurity R&D Strategic Plan Implementation Roadmap," can be found here: [https://www.hsdl.org/?abstract&did=861741].
