In practice, NIST OWM often works interactively and collaboratively with many of our partners to develop, promote, and deliver our Products and Services. Some of our products and services are produced in direct partnership with our stakeholders, such as the publication of the NIST Handbooks 44, 130, and 133 with the National Conference on Weights and Measures (NCWM).

Our current aim is to maintain many of these vital partnerships, but also to further develop and enhance relationships with new partners and stakeholders through the development of new activities as part of our strategic objectives in our Strategic Plan.
