Oversight Review of the Five-Year Outlook Report on Science and Technology. Hearing before the Committee on Science and Technology, U.S. House of Representatives, Ninety-Eighth Congress, Second Session, January 24, 1984. No. 129.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Science and Technology.
This hearin focused on the "Five-Year Outlook for Science and Technology" report. (The original concept called for the submission of a one-time report to be followed by annual updatings. Due in part to transfer of responsibilities to the National Science Foundation-NSF during the years 1976 to 1982, three full-fledged reports were prepared.) The hearing includes: (1) testimony by and/or prepared statements of George Low, Floyd Bloom, James Ling, and Richard Rettig; (2) statement of H. Russell Cort and Elizabeth Cort, principal investigators of an NSF-funded report titled "The Five-Year Outlook on Science and Technology: Views of Users" (which is included in an appendix) and (3) in another appendix, various background materials, including the text of the reports under consideration (the three NSF 5-year outlook reports, three National Academy of Sciences 5-year outlook reports, and the first combined annual science and technology report and outlook), the statutory requirements for the report as mandated by the Science Policy Act of 1976 (Public Law 94-282), costs of the reports, and time and frequency of submission. Questions about the utility, format, and mode of preparation of the outlook, contributions of the National Academy of Science reports, and other topics and issues are explored. (JN)
