Office of the Secretary of Defense


Renewal of Federal Advisory Committee; Sunshine Act Meeting

AGENCY: DoD.

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Under the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act of 
1972, (5 U.S.C. Appendix, as amended), the Sunshine in the Government 
Act of 1976 (5 U.S.C. 552b, as amended), and 41 CFR 102-3.65, the 
Department of Defense gives notice that it is renewing the charter for 
the Board of Regents of the Uniformed Services University of the Health 
Sciences (hereafter referred to as the Board of Regents).
    The Board of Regents, pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2113, is a non-
discretionary Federal advisory committee established to assist the 
Secretary of Defense in an advisory capacity in carrying out the 
Secretary's responsibility to conduct the business of the Uniformed 
Services University of the Health Sciences.
    While 10 U.S.C. 2113(a) does not provide precise objectives and 
scope for the Board of Regents' assistance to the Secretary of Defense, 
past practice has been for the Board of Regents to assist in the areas 
of advice on academic and administrative matters that are critical to 
the full accreditation and successful operation of the University. 
Specific DoD expectations are outlined in DoD Instruction 5105.45 and 
in bylaws and policies developed by the Board of Regents.
    Pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2113(a), the Board of Regents is composed of: 
(a) Nine persons in the fields of health and health education who shall 
be appointed from civilian life by the President, by and with the 
advice and consent of the Senate; (b) the Secretary of Defense, or his 
designee, who shall be an ex officio member; (c) the surgeons general 
of the uniformed services, who shall be ex officio members; and (d) the 
Dean of the University, who shall be a nonvoting ex officio member.
    The terms of the office for those members appointed by the 
President pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2113(b) shall be six years except that: 
(a) any member appointed to fill a vacancy occurring before the 
expiration of the term for which his predecessor was appointed shall be 
appointed for the remainder of such term; (b) the terms of office of 
the members first taking office shall expire, as designated by the 
President at the time of the appointment; and (c) any member whose term 
of office has expired shall continue to serve until his successor is 
appointed.
    The President shall designate one appointed member of the Board of 
Regents to serve as Chair. Members of the Board of Regents who are not 
full-time or permanent part-time Federal employees shall serve as 
Special Government Employees under the authority of 5 U.S.C. 3109, and, 
pursuant to 10 U.S.C. 2113(e), shall receive compensation of no more 
than $100 per day, as determined by the Secretary of Defense, in 
addition to travel expenses and per diem while serving away from their 
place of residence.
    The Board of Regents shall meet at the call of the Designated 
Federal Officer, in consultation with the Chair and the President of 
the University. The Designated Federal Officer shall be a full-time or 
permanent part-time DoD employee, and shall be appointed in accordance 
with established DoD policies and procedures. The Designated Federal 
Officer or Alternate Designated Federal Officer shall attend all Board 
of Regents' meetings and subcommittee meetings.
    The Board of Regents is authorized to establish subcommittees and 
workgroups, as necessary and consistent with its mission. Board of 
Regents subcommittees and workgroups shall operate under the provisions 
of 5 U.S.C., Appendix, as amended, the Sunshine in the Government Act 
of 1976 (5 U.S.C. 552b, as amended) and other appropriate Federal 
regulations.
    Board of Regents subcommittees and workgroups shall not work 
independently of the Board of Regents and shall report all their 
recommendations and advice to the Board of Regents for full 
deliberation and discussion. Board of Regents subcommittees and 
workgroups have no authority to make decisions on behalf of the Board 
of Regents and may not report directly to the Department of Defense or 
any Federal officers or employees who are not Board of regents members.
    Pursuant to 41 CFR 102-3.105(j) and 102-3.140, the public or 
interested organizations may submit written statements to the Board of 
Regents about its mission and functions. Written statements should be 
submitted to the advisory committee's Designated Federal Officer for 
consideration by the membership of the Board of Regents. The advisory 
committee's Designated Federal Officer contact information can be 
obtained from the GSA's FACA Database--https://www.fido.gov/
