Strategic Research Guidance Memorandum

As a science-based agency, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) depends on a robust research and development (R&D) enterprise. NOAA’s R&D is responsive to a wide range of mission drivers creating a need for clear portfolio logic to optimize and defend the Agency’s R&D investment. The Strategic Research Guidance Memorandum provides, for the first time, the portfolio logic by which NOAA’s R&D enterprise can be continually reviewed, evaluated and rebalanced in light of the Agency’s evolving mission needs.
