SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

On March 24, 2006, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) published notice in the Federal Register (71 FR 14930) announcing the establishment of the Critical Infrastructure Partnership Advisory Council (CIPAC). That first CIPAC Notice identified the CIPAC's intended purpose as facilitating interaction between representatives of government and the community of critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/KR) owners and operators in each critical sector. As set forth in that notice, that interaction will include the following activities: “planning; coordination; security program implementation; operational activities related to critical infrastructure protection security measures, including incident response, recovery, and reconstitution from events both man-made and naturally occurring; and the sharing of information about threats, vulnerabilities, protective measures, best practices, and lessons learned.”

CIPAC is designed to include as many of the owners and/or operators and the owner and/or operator representative trade associations deemed by each sector's Sector Coordinating Council (SCC) as necessary participants in the activities described in the March 24, 2006 Notice. That first Notice provided a list of the CIPAC membership from each sector as of that date. That first Notice also stated that the CIPAC Executive Secretariat would work with each SCC's leadership and with the Sector Specific Federal Agency for each sector to compile a list of the CIPAC SCC members from each sector. It further stated that the Department would publish a subsequent Notice identifying these additional members of the CIPAC.

Consistent with that statement, this second Notice announces the current membership. This notice also contains the government entities that comprise the Government Coordinating Council for each sector. CIPAC membership identification is an ongoing process. Some sectors are currently in the process of organizing themselves and will provide additional names to DHS as they develop. Upon review to ensure that the entities provided meet the definition of CIPAC membership contemplated by the Department (i.e., that the institutions identified are, “owners and/or operators or trade associations representing the interests of owners and/or operators that own and invest in infrastructure assets, in the systems and processes to secure them, and that are held responsible by the public for their operations and the response and their recovery when their infrastructures or key resources are disrupted”), the institutions accepted as members of the CIPAC will be added to the CIPAC membership roster published on the CIPAC Web site (http://www.dhs.gov/​cipac). That CIPAC Web site will maintain an updated list of all Sector industry/institutional CIPAC membership, all government entities involved in CIPAC, and the membership of all formal task force and working group entities established and acting within CIPAC. Quarterly, the Department will publish in the Federal Register, instructions how the public can obtain the most current roster of CIPAC membership as well as the membership of all formal task force and working group entities within CIPAC.
