SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Advisory Committee on Tax Exempt and 
Government Entities (ACT), governed by the Federal Advisory Committee 
Act, Public Law 92-463, is an organized public forum for discussion of 
various employee plans, exempt organizations, tax-exempt bonds, and 
federal, state, local and Indian tribal government issues between 
officials of the IRS and representatives of the above communities. The 
ACT enables the IRS to receive regular input with respect to the 
development and implementation of IRS policy concerning these 
communities. ACT members present the interested public's observations 
about current or proposed IRS policies, programs and procedures, as 
well as suggest improvements. The Secretary of the Treasury appoints 
ACT members, who serve three-year terms. ACT members will not be paid 
for their time or services. ACT members will be reimbursed for travel-
related expenses to attend working sessions and public meetings, in 
accordance with 5 U.S.C. 5703. The Secretary of the Treasury invites 
those individuals, organizations and groups affiliated with employee 
plans, exempt organizations, tax-exempt bonds, and federal, state, 
local and Indian tribal governments to nominate individuals for 
membership on the ACT. Nominations should describe and document the 
proposed member's qualifications for ACT membership, including the 
nominee's past or current affiliations and dealings with the particular 
community or segment of the community that he or she would represent 
(such as employee plans). Nominations also should specify the vacancy 
for which the individual wishes to be considered. The Department of the 
Treasury seeks a diverse group of members representing a broad spectrum 
of persons experienced in employee plans, exempt organizations, tax-
exempt bonds, and federal, state, local and Indian tribal governments. 
Nominees must go through a clearance process before selection by the 
Department of the Treasury. In accordance with Treasury Directive 21-
03, the clearance process includes pre-appointment and annual tax 
checks, and an FBI criminal and subversive name check, fingerprint 
check and security clearance.
