National Spectrum Strategy

On October 25, 2018, the President signed the "Developing a Sustainable Spectrum Strategy for America’s Future" Presidential Memorandum. The memo set forth a “balanced, forward-looking, flexible, and sustainable approach to spectrum management” that includes the development of a new National Spectrum Strategy. To support the strategy’s development, the memo directed federal agencies to report to the Secretary of Commerce, working with NTIA, on their future spectrum requirements and to conduct a review of current frequency assignments.

A Spectrum Strategy Task Force, under the chairmanship of the Chief Technology Officer and the National Economic Council, was established to work with NTIA in implementing the memorandum.
