Advisory Committees

HRSA's Federal Advisory Committees advise or make recommendations on matters relating to the programs, responsibilities, or activities of the Department of Health and Human Services.

The Federal Advisory Committee Act (P.L. 92-463) defines what constitutes a federal advisory committee and provides general procedures to follow for their operation. In addition, FACA keeps Congress and the public informed about the purpose, membership, and activities of advisory committees.

A Designated Federal Official manages each advisory committee.
