The report said a federal cybersecurity research agenda has not been developed despite earlier recommendations. It said the White House Office of Management and Budget has not asked agencies to provide all required information on federally funded research projects, so those trying to do oversight and coordination do not have the necessary information.
GAO recommended that the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy establish timelines for getting a cybersecurity research agenda. GAO also recommended that OMB give agencies guidelines for providing research data to repositories.
In commenting on a draft of the report, GAO said "OMB stated that it would review the need for such guidance."
