USIP establishes a new working relationship between the states and the federal government as an integral part of enhancing a National Innovation System to promote economic growth.

USIP strategies include: building strategic partnerships among federal and state governments, universities and industry; strengthening the national S&T system; defining the role of states in the S&T system; maximizing the return on investment from technology; creating mechanisms to promote innovation; building national excellence in manufacturing; and supporting product development and commercialization.

USIP is embodied in a memorandum of understanding between the National Governors' Association, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, and the U.S. Department of Commerce.
