Legislation to Terminate RequiredNot Applicable
Legislation StatusNot Applicable
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The NACCD conducts working group and public meeting to identify, discuss, and deliberate on specific issues within the scope of the charter, making recommendations and providing advice to HHS consistent with FACA.
How is membership balanced?*Members shall be appointed by the HHS Secretary from among the nation’s preeminent scientific, public health, and medical experts in areas consistent with the purpose and functions of the advisory committee. The HHS Secretary, in consultation with such other heads of federal agencies as may be appropriate, shall appoint a maximum of 25 members to the NACCD, ensuring that the total membership is an odd number. Non-federal voting members include representatives from State, local, Tribal, or territorial government agency, experts in public health emergency preparedness, response, and recovery, pediatric medical specialists of multiple types (including children's hospitals), as well as experts in schools, caregivers, and children with disabilities.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*NACCD full committee and subcommittees meet periodically as determined by the DFO and the chairpersons, but at least twice per year in-person with participation from the general public.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The mission and composition of the NACCD is unique, with no other entity specifically organized to provide advice and recommendations that meet the special needs of children and their families in disaster preparedness, response, and recovery. The NACCD provides a unique combination of scientific, operational, policy, and social perspectives that is complementary to and distinct from other FACA in HHS.
Why close or partially close meetings?Not Applicable
Recommendation RemarksThe new charter to reestablish the NACCD was approved in February 2020, with selection of committee members ongoing through the remainder of FY2020. The committee did not hold an inaugural meeting in FY2020.
