Series 9: President's IT Advisory Committee (PITAC) Activities and Publications and PCAST Publications, 1992-2010 [series]:

The High-Performance Computing Act of 1991 authorizes "an advisory committee on high-performance computing consisting of non-Federal members, including representatives from the research, education, and library communities, network providers, and industry, who are specially qualified to advise the Director [of OSTP] with advice and information on high-performance computing." It was to provide an independent assessment of Program progress, need for revision, balance among Program components, and whether the Program's R&D "is helping maintain United States leadership in computing technology". Its recommendations were to be "considered in reviewing and revising the Program." The Presidential Advisory Committee on HPCCITNGI (PAC-HPCCITNGI) was established and held its first meeting in February 1997, and subsequently met about three times a year. In 1998 its name was shortened to President's IT Advisory Committee (PITAC). The Next Generation Internet Research Act of 1998 authorized the PITAC to review the HPCC Program's NGI initiative. In 2005 President George W. Bush assigned the responsibilities of the PITAC to the PCAST.

Includes materials for and from PITAC meetings and PITAC and PCAST reports.

Items in cartons 39 and 40 were donated by Susan Fratkin (CASC).
