NPS Guide to FACA

Congress passed the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) in 1972 to create an orderly way for federal agencies to seek advice and help from citizens and experts. The Guide acquaints NPS managers and employees with FACA, describes how FACA applies to NPS management activities, and provides standard procedures for establishing and renewing advisory committees.
