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) (PDF - 1 MB)defines federal advisory committees and provides general procedures to follow for their operation. FACA ensures that Congress and the public are kept informed with respect to the purpose, membership, and activities of advisory committees.
