Committee Member Representative Performer The Committee shall perform such functions and duties and prepare such reports, as may be required by Section 135 of the Trade Act, with respect to the industry trade advisory committees. The Committee advises the Secretary and USTR on trade matters referred to in section 135(a)(1) of the Act, and is consulted regarding the matters referred to in section 135(a)(2) of the Act. The Committee provides detailed policy and technical advice, information, and recommendations to the Secretary and USTR regarding trade barriers, negotiation of trade agreements under section 2103 of the Bipartisan Trade Promotion Authority Act of 2002, and implementation of existing trade agreements affecting its sector. 145bd572-3dd4-4d3e-b81f-9da379d507d7 The Committee provides detailed policy and technical advice, information, and recommendations to the Secretary and the USTR regarding trade barriers and implementation of trade agreements negotiated under Sections 101 or 102 of the Trade Act of 1974, as amended, and Sections 1102 and 1103 of the 1988 Trade Act, which affect the products of its sector; and performs such other advisory functions relevant to U.S. trade policy as may be requested by the Secretary and the USTR or their designees. 12ff65cb-59b7-4ffd-affd-a565abd43d2d Recommandations This Committee is essential in carrying out the Secretary and USTR's responsibilities under section 135(c)(2) of the 1974 Trade Act, as delegated by E.O. 11846 of March 27, 1975. ITAC-11 is the only advisory committee focused on small and minority business trade issues. As U.S. small businesses make up about 99% of all U.S. companies and 97% of all U.S. exporters, the representation of their trade barriers directly to the negotiators is crucial. In addition, the general committee structure ensures a unique source of information to the Government. All members have security clearances and through a continuing dialogue with Government officials are made aware of Government trade policy at a level not otherwise available to the private sector. The advisory committee program, legislatively mandated, is the single formal comprehensive consultative link between the U.S. Government and U.S. industry and has the responsibility to address all issues concerning trade policy. a73db5ac-ea25-4683-8772-4dd38ca5fcf0 Make, Accept, Implement b2599c07-cab8-4e0d-bb31-f9ad1f2f578f 7f8fe763-88e3-4222-87dd-fb1ac1cc90f6 Recommendations Made Number Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Small and Minority Business Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 On average 2-3 recommendations are submitted annually. 0 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 95629f32-d0bd-4c5c-91ea-41475cb5736e Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage Industry Trade Advisory Committee on Small and Minority Business Department of Commerce For a variety of its own reasons not applicable to the Committee, the agency may implement all/most of the recommendations, but few times recommendations are not implemented. n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 No measureable calculation.
