Hi Dan,
Your second bullet about "creating a strategic R&D roadmap for interagency planning and collaboration" continues to be a problem. Ten years ago, there was distaste for meaningful interagency collaboration, for two reasons. First, it was perceived by some people at the time that other agencies were out to snooker their funding. Fortunately, strong people like Fred Johnson at OASCR (which now has a healthy funding profile) have turned this around, building trust bridges to eliminate this objection.

Second, program managers knew that they were responsible to OMB for their successes or failures, and losing total project control would put their future in others' hands, at least partially. A successful interagency roadmap needs to address this problem. Has OMB come to recognize that leveraging interagency funding is substantially positive?
