How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Board shall provide independent advice and recommendations on matters related to mission, policy, accreditation, faculty, students, facilities, curricula, educational methods, research, and administration of the National Intelligence University
How is membership balanced?*The Board currently consists of members representing the three communities specifically mentioned in the Charter, “distinguished members of the national intelligence community, defense, and academia.” Currently around nine of the members are able to represent the interests of the national Intelligence Community, six are able to represent the interests of the defense and military, and four are able to represent the interests of academia and higher education. Please note that some Board members are able to represent the interests of multiple constituencies.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The Board meets twice annually to consider the full range of activities in which the College is engaged. It provides advice on matters related to mission, policy, finances, facilities, faculty, curricula, research, administration, and accreditation of the National Intelligence University. A Board of Visitors is a mandatory requirement for continuation of the College's academic accreditation with the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and maintaining academic accreditation is required by DoD Instruction 3305.01.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The Secretary of Defense has determined that no other DoD advisory committee can provide the independent advice provided by the Board on University matters such as curricula, methods of instruction, facilities, education/training standards, organizational management, and academic accreditation.
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings are not closed to the public unless the DoD determines that items on the planned agenda meet the closed meeting provisions of 5 U.S.C. § 552b(c). Pursuant to DoD policy closed meetings can only be authorized by the DoD Sponsor, the Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence and Security, and only after consultation with the appropriate general counsel.
Recommendation RemarksThe FY21 Consolidated Appropriations Act, HR 133-1184, identified in Section 305 the transfer date in accordance with Public Law 116-91, Section 5324(a).
