How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*Invasive Species Advisory Committee (ISAC) has at least one in person meeting per year. In addition, members communicate frequently by e-mail, fax, and phone with other ISAC members and additional experts and stakeholders to formulate and provide advice to the National Invasive Species Council (Council) on matters pertaining to invasive species policy and resources.
How is membership balanced?*Membership is balanced among geographical, professional, regional, and subject discipline expertise, as well as other factors. Members are knowledgeable on invasive species issues in a broad range of communities of interest e.g., aquaculture, plant industries, weed science, fisheries science, rangeland management, forest science, plant and animal pathology, invasion biology, conservation biology, agriculture, ecosystem ecology, international trade, and laws and regulations relevant to invasive species policy. Membership includes: individuals from private industry, conservation organizations, academica, and state and tribal governments.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*At least one meeting is held each year. Most meetings are held within the Washington DC commuting area. However, some meetings are held outside the Washington DC commuting area to facilitate broader public input and understanding of regional issues and concerns. Meetings are the primary means for members to exchange information, discuss policy issues with senior officials, to complete the review and formulation of advice, and to share that advice with the National Invasive Species Council.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This Committee provides advice from a broad range of stakeholders and subject discipline experts to the senior-most officials of 13 Executive Branch Departments/Agencies and three Executive Offices of the President. The extensive depth and range of expertise represented by the membership of the Invasive Species Advisory Committee is not available from any other single source.
Why close or partially close meetings?To date, no meetings have been closed, and a public comment period is provided within the agenda of each meeting.
Recommendation RemarksThe Committee was reestablished through Executive Order 14048 on September 30, 2021.

Outcome CommentISAC helps NISC fulfill its duties as the interdepartmental body charged with providing federal leadership on invasive species from a whole of government perspective. In particular, ISAC provides advice on high-level policy and program issues relevant to invasive species.Number Of Grants Recommended0
Cost Savings*Unable to DetermineDollar Value Of Grants Recommended$0.00
Cost Savings CommentThe over 30 federal agencies and bureaus that are overseen by the members of NISC spend about $1.5 billion annually on invasive species. Because this committee operates at a broad level and provides advice to a wide range of federal action, science, and natural resource management agencies it is not possible to identify specific areas of cost savings. For additional invasive species budget information please visit the NISC website, https://www.doi.gov/invasivespecies.Grants Review CommentISAC does not review grants. To date, ISAC has not advice concerning grant processes, gaps or areas of need, and award criteria.

% of Recs Fully Implemented CommentNISC staff estimates that at least 55% of ISAC Recommendations that have been fully implemented. Challenges to further implementation have included limits in funding and staff capacity, the lack of clarity on the advice provided, and the inability to garner substantial support from multi-federal agencies and/or non-federal partners in a timely manner. Note: Implementation is tracked at the overall Departmental/Agency level since this is the level of NISC membership.Access GSA FACA WebsiteYes
% of Recs Partially Implemented*27.00%Access PublicationsNo

Agencies are encouraged to respond to all ISAC recommendations that specifically concern their programs and/or actions. Agencies are also invited to request additional information or clarification from ISAC concerning their recommendations before responding to ISAC or NISC.Narrative Description*Effective September 30, 2021, the Invasive Species Advisory Committee was reauthorized in accordance with Executive Order 14048, after being administratively deactivated on May 3, 2019.
