The Federal Advisory Committee Act (P.L. 92-463) provides a mechanism for experts and stakeholders to participate in the decision-making process, offering advice and recommendations to the Federal government as members of advisory committees is overseen at the highest levels of government: the Congress, the President of the United States, and the General Services Administrator (through authority delegated by the President).
