Description

The Global Advisory Committee (GAC) consists of organizations appointed by the U.S. Attorney General or his/her designee. The GAC acts as the focal point for justice information sharing activities and works to provide the U.S. Attorney General and the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) with appropriate input from local, state, tribal, and federal agencies/associations in the ongoing pursuit of interjurisdictional and multidisciplinary justice information sharing. In accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), membership must be balanced in terms of the point of view represented and functions to be performed. Appointments are for two years and are to be renewed at the discretion of the U.S. Attorney General and/or the Designated Federal Official (DFO).

DOJ and the GAC expect each member organization to designate a key person within that organization as its representative to the GAC. This representative will have the ability to gain executive sponsorship for Global initiatives. DOJ and the GAC expect each representative to have the authority to commit to decisions that affect the member’s organization/affiliation during GAC meetings.
