Welcome to the CENDI web site

CENDI’s vision is to provide its member federal STI agencies a cooperative enterprise where capabilities are shared and challenges are faced together so that the sum of accomplishments is greater than each individual agency can achieve on its own.

CENDI’s mission is to help improve the productivity of federal science- and technology-based programs through effective scientific, technical, and related information-support systems. In fulfilling its mission, CENDI agencies play an important role in addressing science- and technology-based national priorities and strengthening U.S. competitiveness.

CENDI is an interagency working group of senior scientific and technical information (STI) managers from 13 U.S. federal agencies:

These programs represent over 97% of the federal research and development budget.

The CENDI web site is hosted by the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC), and is maintained by the CENDI secretariat.
