SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The CSMAC was first chartered in 2005 under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C. App. 2, to carry out the functions of the National Telecommunications and Information Administration Act, 47 U.S.C. 904(b). The CSMAC advises the Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Communications and Information on a broad range of issues regarding spectrum policy.

The Secretary of Commerce appoints members to the CSMAC for two year terms. They are experts in radio spectrum policy, and do not represent any organization or interest, and serve in the capacity of Special Government Employees. Members do not receive compensation or reimbursement for travel or for per diem expenses. Members may not be federally registered lobbyists. Previously, the charter allowed CSMAC to have up to 20 members. The renewed charter, effective April 6, 2009, allows up to 25 members to serve on the CSMAC.
