The DoD is amending the charter for the Defense Innovation Advisory Board previously announced on page 18842 of the Federal Register, Volume 81, Number 63, dated April 1, 2016. Specifically, the DoD is changing the name of the Defense Innovation Advisory Board to the Defense Innovation Board (“the Board”), and increasing the Board's total membership. The membership for the Defense Innovation Advisory Board was limited to no more than 15 members, but the DoD is increasing the membership for the Board to no more than 20 members. In addition, the DoD is appointing three, non-voting ex-officio members to the Board, and their inclusion will not count toward the total membership. The three, non-voting ex-officio members are the chairs of the Defense Business Board, the Defense Policy Board, and the Defense Science Board. All other aspects of the Defense Innovation Advisory Board's charter, as previously announced, will apply to the Board.
