Activity Description

This standing committee is no longer active. 

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine will establish a standing committee of experts to help inform decision making by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) Division of Strategic National Stockpile (SNS). The standing committee will include experts in state and local public health, medical countermeasure production, warehouse and product distribution, logistics management, emergency medical services, emergency medicine, risk communications, and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulatory issues. The standing committee will provide a venue for the exchange of ideas among federal, state, and local government agencies, the private sector, and the academic community, as well as other relevant stakeholders involved in emergency preparedness and emergency response services. Further, as needed, the standing committee will be involved in the planning, development, and oversight of related ad hoc activities undertaken by separately appointed committees operating under its auspices. In accordance with National Research Council policies, the standing committee itself will not produce or be used in the development of any reports.

The standing committee should:

  • Stand ready to respond on short notice to requests and other needs from CDC,
  • Provide a venue to enable discussions relevant to CDC on emerging issues, research, and activities through in-depth knowledge of the sponsor's programs, goals, and activities,
  • Serve as a focal point for national policy discussions by experts and other leaders in the field, and
  • Respond to CDC’s needs for continuing dialog related to their planning, strategic thinking, and program development.
