Legislation to Terminate RequiredNo
Legislation StatusEnacted
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The committee gathers to discuss major international issues and foreign policy challenges that the Secretary has chosen, based on the his belief that a diverse array of experienced outside voices can usefully support him as he works to address those specific challenges. Each meeting includes discussion on one or more topics that the Secretary has chosen, interaction with other senior Department officials, and an opportunity for the Board to provide perspectives and views developed and discussed during the meeting to the Secretary.
How is membership balanced?*The members are distinguished figures from a range of backgrounds, including academia, NGOs, think tanks, business, and government--all of whom bring a unique perspective based on that background and long experience dealing with international issues from a range of perspectives. The selection of membership was in coordination with the Board’s Membership Balance Plan.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*It is anticipated that the board will meet an estimated four times per year occurring approximately every 3-4 months.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The committee is necessary to supplement the advice and support the Secretary gets from the Department with a broad range of diverse outside perspectives on major international issues.
Why close or partially close meetings?The meetings must be closed because of the sensitive nature of discussed topics and materials, which are often classified.
Recommendation RemarksNo formal reports have been produced for public distribution. Meetings are closed to the public due to the sensitive nature of discussions. Members of the Board have submitted materials for senior State Department officials eyes-only. In 2018, no official meetings of the Board took place. The Secretary is evaluating options for continuing the board, but no formal decision has been made. This record will be updated to reflect that decision when it is made. Since the board remains dormant for the foreseeable future, there is no anticipated funding figures for next year.
