RECOMMENDATION/JUSTIFICATIONS

Agency Recommendation*Continue
Legislation to Terminate RequiredNot Applicable
Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Council is composed of both scientific and public members who provide the second level of peer review, advise on policy development, program implementation and evaluation, and identify research needs and opportunities of the Institute. The Council reviewed 1,168 applications requesting $411,042,143 that were reviewed by initial review groups and special emphasis panels for NIAAA.
How is membership balanced?*The National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism is composed of 18 appointed members with research interests and responsibilities paralleling those of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Twelve members are leading representatives of the health and scientific disciplines (including public health and the behavioral or social sciences). Six members are representatives of the general public, including leaders in the fields of public policy, law, health policy, economics, and management.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Meetings are held not less than three times each fiscal year. The National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NCAA) met on February 7, 2019, May 14, 2019 and September 12, 2019. The NCAA met together with the Advisory Councils of NIDA and NCI on May 15, 2019. The NCAA provides advice on a continuing basis on the type of scientific research programs that should be supported and on how to carry out the designated mission and responsibilities of the Institute. It also provides ongoing review of the relevance and effectiveness of the existing programs.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism is composed of both scientific and public members who provide the second level of review for research grant applications; advise on policy development, program implementation and evaluation; and identify research needs and opportunities of the Institute. The quality, scope, and balance of advice from this Council cannot be obtained from NIH staff or from other established sources because the membership of the Council is constituted to meet the specific requirements of the mandated mission of the Council and of the Institute.
Why close or partially close meetings?The meetings of the National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism were closed to the public for the review of grant applications. Sections 552b(c)(4) and 552b(c)(6) of the Government in the Sunshine Act permit the closing of meetings where discussion could reveal confidential trade secrets or commercial property such as patentable material and personal information, the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.
Recommendation RemarksCommittee Function: Other - National Scientific and Advisory.

Reports: This Committee did not produce any public reports.

Members: The term end date for Howard Becker changed due to an Executive Order issued in FY19. As such, their term of service end date is different than what was reported on the FY18 ACR.

The DFO and Committee Decision Maker positions are held by the same individual because of the assignment of responsibilities within the Institute.

Costs: Daily salary costs have been estimated for Federal and/or Ex Officio members of this committee. The dollar figure represents a portion of their annual salary. No funds have been transferred between the committee and the agency. No additional funds are paid to Federal employee due to membership on this committee.

Research grant applications submitted to NIH must go through a two-step review process that includes the initial peer review for scientific and technical merit and a second step of review and approval by a National Advisory Council that includes program relevance. In addition, prior to an award or funding being made, NIH staff must conduct an administrative review for a number of other considerations. These include alignment with NIH's funding principles, review of the project budget, assessment of the applicant's management systems, determination of applicant eligibility, and compliance with public policy requirements. After all these steps have been completed, NIH officials make funding decisions on individual grant applications.

NIH works toward that mission by: conducting research in its own laboratories; supporting the research of non-Federal scientists in universities, medical schools, hospitals, and research institutions throughout the country and abroad; helping in the training of research investigators; and fostering communication of medical and health sciences information. Section 492 of the Public Health Service Act states that The Secretary....shall by regulation require appropriate technical and scientific peer review of - (A) applications ...; and (B) ...biomedical and behavioral research and development contracts... The National Advisory Council on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism provides second level peer review, makes recommendations for support of grants, contracts proposals, and cooperative agreements; advises on policy development, program implementation and evaluation; and identifies research needs of the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism.
