AAU, Associations Send Memo to OSTP on JCORE Recommendations

On Wednesday, AAU joined ACE, AAMC, APLU, and COGR on a memorandum to Office of Science and Technology Policy acting Director Kei Koizumi requesting the office review and invite stakeholder comments on the previous administration’s “Presidential Memorandum on United States Government-Supported Research and Development National Security Policy (NSPM-33)” and “Recommended Practices for Strengthening the Security and Integrity of America’s Science and Technology Research Enterprise.” The memo says that while the documents include some “clear, targeted, feasible, and well-grounded” provisions, it also includes items of concerns, such as varying definitions of some terms and the scope of some requirements and recommendations. The associations request OSTP issue a formal comment period and delay any agency implementation called for the by the documents until they have carefully reviewed them and provided an opportunity for input from stakeholders.
