The Commerce Department official said, “The reductions required by sequestration will adversely affect all NIST cybersecurity related efforts through cutbacks on travel, contracts, grants, and other operational expenses. NIST currently does not anticipate eliminating or reducing NSTIC pilots or programs.”
Are new (not yet awarded) pilot funds still vulnerable? Will cut travel funds mean the IESG meetings must move to the Beltway to be near the NSTIC PMO staff? Will the PMO be able to staff up as the project grows?
