The Board's charter is being amended in accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) (5 U.S.C. Appendix) and 41 CFR 102-3.50(d). The DoD is amending the Board's current charter, which was previously announced in the Federal Register on June 1, 2018 (83 FR 25442), to change the name to the “Education for Seapower Advisory Board” and to increase the number of annual meetings for the Board from one to two. The Advisory Board, the Naval Postgraduate School Subcommittee and the Naval War College Subcommittee are otherwise unchanged.
Individual members of the Board, including its two subcommittees, shall be appointed according to DoD policy and procedures to serve a term of service of one-to-four years with annual renewals. Leadership appointments for the Board and its subcommittees shall be selected from among previously approved members of the Board or subcommittee, in question, for a one-to-two year term of service, with annual renewal, which shall not exceed the individual's Board or subcommittee appointment, as appropriate.
Members of the Board and its subcommittees who are not full-time or permanent part-time Federal officers or employees, or members of the Armed Forces, will be appointed as experts or consultants pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 3109 to serve as special government employee members. Board members who are full-time or permanent part-time Federal officers or employees, or members of the Armed Forces, will be appointed pursuant to 41 CFR 102-3.130(a) to serve as regular government employee members.Start Printed Page 52077
