White House Office of Science and Technology Policy

The Federal Government plays a critical investment role in maintaining American leadership in science and technology. In 1976, the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) was created to provide the President with timely policy advice and to coordinate the science and technology investment. Led by its director, Dr. John H. Gibbons, OSTP has assumed a prominent role in advancing the Clinton Administration's agenda in fundamental science, education and scientific literacy, investment in applied research, and international cooperation.
