Abstract: This report provides a high-level overview of the current legal and policy framework for government engagement in private-sector standards activities and describes how the government engages in these activities. It summarizes stakeholder observations in response to the December 2010 Request For Information (RFI) issued by the National Institute of Standards and Technology on behalf of the Subcommittee on Standards of the National Science and Technology Council about government engagement in standardization generally and in specific technology areas. Finally, the report outlines policy recommendations for consideration as a component of proposed supplementary guidance to agencies engaging in private-sector standards activities to address national priorities specified by Congressional mandate or Administration policy.
