Increase participation of the affected public in FACA committees

Federal Advisory Committees are an important mechanism for in-depth discussion between agencies and the public. Rules and guidelines need improvement, but also agencies may not be able to afford to establish and maintain all of the FACA committees they need.

Utilize former Advisory Board Members

Term limits for Board members have caused valuable input on federal issues to be lost. Significant time is spent educating new members - long term members are often the most informed. Create special avenues for former members to provide input, such as separate blogs, annual meetings, to tap into the time investment made into these citizens.

Reduce the Role of Vested Interests in Advising Government

Federal Advisory Committees should be regulated in such a manner that vested interests are restricted to a minority voice. FACs should be composed of educated citizens that are not in conflict of interest and in no position to make scads of money should their advice be taken. Currently these groups are stacked overwhelmingly (if not exclusively) with those whose interests run counter to the public good - and toward their ...more »

Establish a US Goverment-wide Intranet

Today many US department/agencies (especially US foreign affairs, intelligence and military departments/agencies), and thousands of employees working for these agencies, currently share information and collaborate using a US government-hosted and provided inter-agency intranet known by the name "Intelink-U" (the "U" stands for unclassified, as there is another similar version of USG intranet that handles "classified" ...more »
