% of Recs Fully Implemented CommentThis was a 90-day committee and the recommendations were forwarded the President. The recommendations are being discussed for approval/implementation across various offices and levels of government, with the majority not being the explicit responsibility of any federal agency but rather recommendations to communities and local government entities; some of the recommendations may have plans to be implemented by September 30th, but the committee was terminated immediately upon submitting its final report. So any implementation would take place outside the life of the committee.Access GSA FACA WebsiteYes
