On the Appointment of the Acting Deputy Director

October 1996

I am pleased to name Joseph Bordogna as acting deputy director of the National Science Foundation effective September 16, 1996. Dr. Bordogna will relieve Dr. Anne Petersen, NSF's deputy director since September 1994, who has accepted a senior position with the Kellogg Foundation.

Bordogna came to NSF from the University of Pennsylvania in 1991, and since then has headed NSF's Directorate for Engineering. His strong connections with industry have helped to move NSF, and the entire science and engineering community, toward increased university-industry collaboration. He was a member of the Pennsylvania Governor's team that developed the Ben Franklin Partnership, the State of Pennsylvania's technology deployment initiative. No stranger to policy-making, Bordogna has been a leader in many NSF policy-setting activities. He has actively represented NSF in a variety of committees and working groups of the National Science and Technology Council (NSTC).

Like the director, NSF's deputy director is presidentially appointed. Joe Bordogna's professional experience and knowledge of NSF will keep us on track until a permanent deputy is nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate.

Dr. Neal Lane
