HHS Secretary's Tribal Advisory Committee (STAC)


The committee is comprised of one primary representative from each of the twelve areas of the IHS, as well as five at-large national representatives.  The primary purpose is to seek consensus, exchange views, share information, and provide advice and/or recommendations; or facilitate any other interaction related to intergovernmental responsibilities or administration of HHS programs, including those that arise explicitly or implicitly under statute, regulation or executive order.  This purpose will be accomplished through forums, meetings and conversations between Federal officials and elected Tribal leaders in their official capacity (or their designated employees or national associations with authority to act on their behalf).  STAC will convene up to three face-to-face meetings on a fiscal year basis.  Conference calls will be held as needed.
