How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The purpose of the committee is to carry out a study of the policies and management and organizational practices of the U.S. Navy and the U.S. Marine Corps with respect to the responsibilities, assignment, and career development of judge advocates for purposes of determining the number of judge advocates required to fulfill the legal mission of the Department of the Navy
How is membership balanced?*The Panel, pursuant to section 506(a) of Public Law 111-84, shall be comprised of five members appointed by the Secretary of Defense from among private U.S. citizens who have expertise in law, military manpower policies, the missions of the Armed Forces of the United States, or the current responsibilities of judge advocates in ensuring competent legal representation and advice to commanders. The Panel chairperson shall be appointed by the Secretary of Defense from among the total membership. All Panel members shall be appointed for the life of the Panel, and any Panel vacancy shall be filled in the same manner as the original appointment.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - 5 Estimated Total Meetings - 5
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*This advisory committee is established by an Act of Congress -- section 506 of Public Law 111-84.
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings are not closed to the public unless the Department of Defense 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 (i.e., the Under Secretary of Defense for Personnel and Readiness), and only after consultation with the Office of the Department of Defense General Counsel.
Recommendation RemarksThe Panel is charged by statute with only one report of advice and recommendations which is due 120 days after the Panel's first meeting.

Department of Defense (DoD) policy between fiscal year 2007 and 2011 required that subcommittee members be listed separately in the subcommittee section of GSA’s Database, even if they were duly appointed members of the parent committee. This policy, in some instances, caused a duplication of entries.

Beginning in fiscal year 2012, DoD will only list in the subcommittee section of GSA’s Database those who are appointed to just a subcommittee. If an individual is appointed to the parent committee and to one of the committee’s authorized subcommittees then his or her subcommittee affiliation will be reflected in the parent committee membership section of GSA’s Database.
