Legislation Status 
How does cmte accomplish its purpose?*The Minerals Management Advisory Board was recommended for termination effective May 6, 2004. It was comprised of three committees that will be established under individual charters to continue to provide sound advice to the Secretary of the Interior through the Director of the Minerals Management Service (MMS) and other officers on managing the Nation’s oil, natural gas, and other mineral resources on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) in federal waters in an environmentally sound and safe manner and to timely collect, verify, and distribute mineral revenues from Federal and Indian lands. The OCS Policy Committee (OCSPC) works closely with the Associate Director for Offshore Minerals Management on policies related to all aspects of leasing, exploration, development and protection of OCS resources. The OCS Scientific Committee (OCSSC) works closely with the MMS Science Liaison and Chief Scientist on the feasibility, appropriateness, and scientific value of the OCS Environmental Studies Program. The Royalty Policy Committee (RPC) works closely with the Associate Director for Minerals Revenue Management on revenue management and other mineral related policies.
How is membership balanced?*Members of the committees of the Minerals Management Advisory Board were appointed by the Secretary for their ability to represent specific constituencies who have an interest in the management and protection of the OCS and collection and distribution of mineral revenues from Federal and Indian lands. The Secretary appoints all members to the Board which is comprised of representatives from the major and independent producers in oil industry, natural gas industry, marine mining industry, marine transportation, local government, fisheries community, environmental community, scientific community, and the general public. There are also members representing the interests of each coastal State, the Western Governors' Association, the Western State Land Commissioners' Association, Indian tribes and Allotee Associations, Alaska Tribal interests and Natives, subsistence and other resource users, the minerals industry and other Federal Agencies.
How frequent & relevant are cmte mtgs?*Each committee met at least once a year.
Why advice can't be obtained elsewhere?*The advice and information that the committees provided to MMS and the Department was unique. Each affected State and Indian Tribe was represented and members expressed the official opinion of the State Governors and Tribal Leaders. The members also served as MMS's primary contact to the Governors' offices and tribes. Members appointed at the discretion of the Secretary were important to providing balanced opinions and expertise on the committees. These members brought into focus a broad range of knowledge, opinions, and interpretations and provided for distillation of data affecting offshore oil and gas exploration and development and royalty management. The committee meetings also provided opportunities for parties knowledgeable about, affected by, and/or affecting OCS oil and gas development and royalty management to discuss their differences in an open forum and to examine alternatives to resolve conflicts. There was no other resource of this scope available to MMS and the Department.
Why close or partially close meetings?All meetings of the Minerals Management Advisory Board were open to the public.
