What is CENDI?


Interagency group of senior federal STI
managers who agree to cooperate by


Exchanging information and ideas


Sharing resources


Undertaking joint initiatives


From policy to standards to operations


12 member agencies manage over
97%

of
the annual federal R&D budget

CENDI Membership

An interagency group composed of senior STI managers
:

CENDI began with four agencies and took its name
from the beginning letter of each member agency:

C
OMMERCE


National Technical Information Service (NTIS)

E
NERGY


Office of Scientific and Technical Information (OSTI)

N
ASA


Scientific and Technical Information Program (STI)

D
EFENSE



Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC)

I

NFORMATION


7 cabinet departments


1 legislative branch agency



12 major programs



4 independent agencies


1960s
-
1970s COSATI organized information,
information analysis, and data centers across
the federal government


Weinberg report on Science, Government
and Information a major impetus (1964)


Mid
-
1970s, COSATI was dissolved but STI
managers continued to meet informally


1984 CENDI was formalized with an MOU of 4
(C,E,N,D) agencies


NLM joined in 1986

A Long and Well Established
History of STI Cooperation

From 4 to 12 agencies ~










Affinity Areas:

National libraries, departmental STI centers, cross cutting
information organizations, research funding programs

Challenged by OSTP Chris Greer


“Science2Jobs”


a work in Process


Vision


Fully interoperable data & information network that
stimulates job growth by enabling new opportunities for
innovation and discovery


Goal and Objectives


Expand Science.gov to drive data
-
intensive science
--

including research, education and
applications


Create a semantically rich information network across agencies;


Extend the scope of “data objects” presently served


Integrate other agency capabilities with Science.gov so that the
whole becomes a larger network that enables business innovation by
a broad array of stakeholders


Priority for FY11:

Develop a CENDI Grand Challenge
