May 4, 2009, 3:32 p.m. Ben Stein, Director of Media Relations, NIST Public and Business Affairs Office Ms. Manos sent an email requesting clarification on the $220 million in stimulus funds allocated to NIST's Scientific and Technical Research Services--specifically if the $220 million is the same funding for research and development programs under Sec. 13202 of the Recovery Act. I responded via email that the funding in Sec. 13202 describes a separate $20 million transfer from the Secretary of Health and Human Services (HHS) for NIST to continue work in healthcare information technology, in coordination with the HHS Office of the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology, and suggested that additional information is available at www.nist.gov/recovery.
