Membership on the HPCCIT Subcommittee
The National Coordination Office and the HPCCIT Subcommittee
actively encourage other Federal agencies (Departments, agencies
within Departments, or independent agencies) to consider joining
HPCCIT either as Official Members or as Observers.
If an agency proposes a program and the HPCCIT Subcommittee
determines that the program meets the Evaluation Criteria (see
below) and approves it, then the Subcommittee will recommend to
the Committee on Physical, Mathematical, and Engineering Sciences
(CPMES) that the agency be added to the HPCC Program and
participate in the budget crosscut.
Upon request from the agency and approval by the HPCCIT
Subcommittee, an agency may participate in the technical program
and attend HPCCIT Subcommittee meetings.
Requests for membership or observer status should be directed to
the National Coordination Office (listed on page 166 in the Contacts
