How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Intergovernmental Advisory Committee (IAC) was formed to advise the Federal agencies regarding implementation of the Northwest Forest Plan on federal lands and to provide a forum for better integration of forest ecosystem management activities among federal and non-federal governmental entities across jurisdictional boundaries. The advisory committee accomplishes this task by providing a forum in which members from Federal, State, local, and tribal governments can come together to share knowledge, perspectives and advice.
How is membership balanced?*The IAC is composed of the following 21 members: 1 representative each from the States of Washington, Oregon, and California (for a total of 3 representatives, usually from the Governor's staff); 1 representative each from natural resource management associations representing affected tribes in the States of Washington, Oregon, and California (for a total of 3 representatives); 1 representative for the affected counties of Washington, Oregon, and California (for a total of 3 representatives); and 1 representative from each of the following Federal agencies (for a total of 12 representatives): U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, Environmental Protection Agency, National Marine Fisheries Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Forest Service Research, Environmental Protection Agency Research, and USGS Biological Resources Division. No private interests are represented on the IAC.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*The intergovernmental advisory committee met only 1 time in FY 2007. That meeting was used to consider opportunities for continued communication among the IAC members through other existing venues outside of a FACA chartered committee.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The IAC was established in 1994 to ensure interagovernmental coordination, communication and consistent implementation of the NWFP. In the early years of the NWFP, the IAC met frequently to coordinate activities and resolve implementation issues. Over the years, many implementation issues were resolved, and effective patterns of interagovernmental coordination were established. Consequently, the IAC began to meet less frequently and it evolved into more of an information sharing and relationship building forum. While these functions are very important, they do not require the time and expense of a Federally-chartered advisory committee. As a result a decision was made to allow the charter for this committee to expire.

Agency Feedback CommentPoints of advice are captured during the meeting in notes and on flip charts, and reflected in the meeting minutes. Minutes are distributed electronically two weeks after the meeting, and are also available on the Regional Ecosystem Office website (www.reo.gov). When applicable, presentations are made to the IAC at committee meetings.Narrative Description*The Intergovernmental Advisory Committee (IAC) is composed of nine non-federal members, and 1 representative from each of the following Federal agencies: U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Park Service, Environmental Protection Agency, National Marine Fisheries Service, Natural Resources Conservation Service, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, U.S. Forest Service Research, Environmental Protection Agency Research, and USGS Biological Resources Division. The collective mission of the nine Federal agencies that sit on the IAC is the successful implementation of the Northwest Forest Plan. The mission or strategic plan of the Northwest Forest Plan is based on five key principles: 1) Focusing on the human and economic dimensions of natural resource management; 2) Protecting the long-term health of forests, wildlife and waterways 3) Focusing on efforts that are scientifically sound, ecologically credible, and legally responsible; 4) Producing predictable and sustainable levels of timber sales and non-timber resources; and 5) Ensuring that Federal agencies work together. These five key principles embody an ecosystem approach to land management that requires the agencies to consider the implications of forest management activities on not only Federal lands, but on lands under a variety of ownerships across the landscape. The IAC is essential in this regard. The IAC advises the agencies regarding implementation of the Northwest Forest Plan on federal lands, and provides a forum for better integration of forest ecosystem management activities among federal and non-federal (state, tribal and local) governmental entities across jurisdictional boundaries.
