GSA calls for travel advisory committee nominations
Monday - 12/31/2012, 12:05pm EST
GSA recently determined that an agency was needed to oversee existing government travel policies and procedures to ensure that they were sufficiently transparent and accountable.
Through a review process, the GTAC will examine travel industry trends and solicit expert advice from industry leaders and other qualified individuals. Using this information, the committee will make recommendations on how agencies can improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their travel policies.
GTAC will be made up of no more than 15 members — including a chairman — who have extensive knowledge in travel management. Nominees can be agency travel managers or members of the public and private sector with related experience, such as hoteliers and travel association officers as well as state and local government officials.
Federally registered lobbyists are prohibited from serving on the committee.
GTAC members will initially serve two-year terms, with the chance of a one-year extension. The government will not compensate committee members for their service nor reimburse their travel expenses.
The committee's charter will automatically expire two years after its initial filing, unless it is renewed before the expiration date.
More information about how to nominate an individual and other requirements can be found at the Federal Register.
