During the first half of 2018, McAllister & Quinn successfully helped place several faculty members onto Federal Advisory Committees (FACs).
FACs were created following the enactment of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) in 1972. Their purpose is to create a formal dialogue between the federal government and its stakeholders. Hence, FAC members are active participants in conversations that will inevitably shape the federal research and development landscape.
McAllister & Quinn assists clients by (1) identifying committee openings and matching them with promising faculty; and (2) developing competitive nomination packages. Most recently, we have placed researchers on:
- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Advisory Committee on Breast Cancer in Young Women
- Department of Commerce (DOC) Advisory Committee on Supply Chain Competitiveness
- National Science Foundation (NSF) STEM Education Advisory Panel
Currently, there are more than 1,000 committees providing advice and recommendations to the executive branch on a range of issues. If you’re interested in finding out more about Federal Advisory Committees and their importance, please read our Insights into Federal Advisory Committees case study, or reach out to McAllister & Quinn directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
