of duties imposed upon the National Science Foundation (NSF), by 42 
U.S.C. 1861 et seq. This determination follows consultation with the 
Committee Management Secretariat, General Services Administration.
    Name of Committee: Advisory Committee for Innovation Corps 
    Purpose: The Committee will provide advice to the National Science 
Foundation (NSF) on the direction, development, and enhancement of the
