The Alliance is a voluntary alliance of U.S. federal scientific, technical and related departments, agencies, programs, projects or offices. The Alliance focuses on providing authoritative, selective scientific and technical information (STI) and services. Vision and strategic direction are provided by the Alliance principals. Administration is provided by the chair or co-chairs selected from among the Alliance members. Task groups have been created as needed to handle the development of the taxonomy, to support content development and web site management and to conduct promotional and outreach activities. Support is provided by CENDI, a working group of high level scientific and technical information managers in science mission agencies.
