Cabinet Exit Memos: Our Record of Progress and the Work Ahead
Friends, As we look back on the past eight years, President Obama asked each member of his Cabinet to write an Exit Memo on the progress we’ve made, their vision for the country’s future, and the work that remains in order to achieve that vision. You can read President Obama’s cover letter to the American people here.
Today, White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Director Dr. John Holdren and U.S. Chief Technology Officer (CTO) Megan Smith are releasing an Exit Memo that highlights the profound impact President Obama’s leadership has had reinvigorating the American scientific and technological enterprise, including to help build a more effective, efficient, and innovative government. The OSTP Exit Memo also offers an overview of science and technology frontiers and calls for actions needed in the years ahead to include all Americans in driving continued innovation and progress across those frontiers.
You can read OSTP’s exit memo here and can check out all of the other Cabinet exit memos here. A summary of OSTP’s exit memo can be found here and below.
Please let me know if you have any questions and thank you for your continued work to support science and technology across the country.
