CISSM Forum | "An Agent, Not a Mole: Assessing the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy" | David M. Hart

What criteria should be used to assess the performance of the Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP)? Should one judge it based on its success in killing bad ideas? Should one evaluate how well it mobilizes expertise in support of crisis response? How about its ability to identify new issues and develop presidential policy initiatives? Or should the office's activities be judged based on whether it catalyzes and coordinates multi-agency science and technology activities, especially in response to Presidential goals. By determining the best criteria by which to evaluate the office, it is possible to spark the necessary debate and research to support planning by OSTP staff and their interlocutors inside and outside of government. {Will appear in FYI on Sep 19, 2013
