Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*Serve in an advisory capacity to broaden the scope of vision for the U.S. Army amputee patient care program. Serve as an advisory body and monitor amputee patient care programs and services, and provide advice to the Walter Reed Health Care System regarding programs, services and effective organizational planning
How is membership balanced?*Committee members will be diverse and qualified with training and/or experience in patient care, psychosocial issues, and family issues relevant to amputees. Members will include professionals in relevant amputee patient fields, immediate family members of amputees, and actual recipients of amputee patient care.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*New Committee: Estimated Number of Meetings per Year - 2 Estimated Total Meetings - 4
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*To ensure that amputee patient care provided by the U.S. Armed Forces is state of the art and delivered in a cost effective manner. This Board will provide the Amputee Care Program with views and information specifically related to the care of soldiers injured in military conflict. The typical combat injured amputee patient is generally younger and has a more involved wounding pattern than the typical civilian sector amputee. No existing organization has the expertise required to advise the U.S. Army on these matters
Why close or partially close meetings?Meetings will be open.
Recommendation RemarksBased upon a top-to-bottom review of the DoD Federal Advisory Committee Management Program, the US Military Amputee Patient Care Program Board of Directors will become a sub-committee/panel of the newly established Defense Health Advisory Board. The Board will now be known as the Panel on the Care of Individuals with Amputation and/or Functional Limb Loss. The committee's charter was refiled in July 2006, no committee members have been appointed nor has any committee work been done. Committee member appointments are pending and the Department of Defense anticipates that committee members will be approved and in place prior to a first meeting in 2007.

Since no committee members were appointed in FY06, there were no meetings and no reports submitted by the committee.

The expenditure of FY06 funds have been for DoD Federal employees who are engaged in setting up the committee's infrastructure. These employees will have no impact whatsoever on the independence of the committee once it is operational. Their purpose in setting up the committee's infrastructure is to enable the committee members, once appointed, to immediately focus on their important mission to the Department of Defense, service members, and the Amputee Patient Care Program.
