The Technology Administration (TA) was an agency in the United States Department of Commerce that worked with United States industries to promote economic competitiveness. The TA had web domain technology.gov. The TA was most recently led by former Under Secretary of Commerce for Technology, Robert Cresanti.

The TA oversaw three agencies:

  • National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)
  • National Technical Information Service (NTIS)
  • Office of Technology Policy (OTP)
  • History

    The Technology Administration was created by the Stevenson-Wydler Technology Innovation Act of 1980, 15 U.S.C. 3704.

    The TA was abolished by the America COMPETES Act of 2007. NIST and NTIS continue on as agencies. It appears that the Office of Technology Policy was abolished.
