We do not follow up on that scene in the narrative in any of the subsequent features. But, for fans, which are really the only people going, “Hey, wait a minute. What about when Tony Stark walked into the room and talked to General Ross?” There’s a short film on the “Captain America” DVD that wraps that up and explains that.

Because of The Avengers being released, Hawkeye will be getting his own comic in the near future. More info at Marvel.
