NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION


Request of Recommendations for Membership for Directorate and 
Office Advisory Committees

ACTION: Notice.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The National Science Foundation (NSF) requests

[[Page 16867]]

recommendations for membership for its scientific and technical Federal 
advisory committees. Recommendations should consist of the submitting 
person or organization's name and affiliation, the name of the 
recommended individual, the recommended individual's curriculum vita 
(2-5 pages), an expression of the individual's interest in serving, and 
the following recommended individual's contact information: employment 
address, telephone number, Fax number, and email address. Self 
recommendations are accepted. If you would like to make a 
recommendation for membership on any of our committees, please send 
your recommendation to the committee contact person listed below.

ADDRESSES: The mailing address for the National Science Foundation is 
4201 Wilson Boulevard, Arlington, VA 22230.
    Web links to individual committee information may be found on NSF 
Web site: NSF Advisory Committees.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each Directorate and Office has an external 
advisory committee that typically meets twice a year to review and 
provide advice on program management, discuss current issues and review 
and provide advice on the impact of policies, programs, and activities 
in the disciplines and fields encompassed by the Directorate or Office. 
In addition to Directorate and Office advisory committees, NSF has 
several committees that provide advice and recommendation on specific 
topics: astronomy and astrophysics; environmental research and 
education; equal opportunities in science and engineering; performance 
assessment; and business and operations.
    A primary consideration when formulating committee membership is 
recognized knowledge, expertise, or demonstrated ability \1\. Other 
factors that may be considered are balance among diverse institutions, 
regions, and groups underrepresented in science, technology, 
engineering, and mathematics. Committee members serve for varying term 
lengths, depending on the nature of the individual committee. Although 
we welcome the recommendations we receive, we regret that NSF will not 
be able to acknowledge or respond positively to each person who 
contacts NSF or has been recommended. NSF intends to publish a similar 
notice to this on an annual basis. NSF will keep recommendations active 
for 12 months from the date of receipt.

    \1\ Federally registered lobbyists are not eligible for 
appointment to these Federal advisory committees.
