By statute, the committee is composed of representatives of research & academic institutions, industry standards development organizations, state & local government, & financial committees who are qualified to provide advice on earthquake hazards reduction & represent all related scientific, architectural, & engineering disciplines. The committee shall assess trends and developments in the science & engineering of earthquake hazards reduction; effectiveness of the program in carrying out its prescribed activities; need to revise the program; and the management, coordination, implementation, & activities of the program. 50ff55c7-2779-40e7-abde-b746b830c9f7 Recommandations The Committee is necessary to fulfill the responsibility of the Department under the National Earthquake Hazards Reduction Program Reauthorization Act of 2004 (P.L. 108-360). 1acf6a5b-ff90-46e9-88da-e805b89614a6 Make, Accept, Implement 54451115-600b-4792-b8fa-bbe49ad88e20 c3d2143e-b500-4baa-b9f4-365d13c7822c Recommendations Made Number Advisory Committee on Earthquake Hazards Reduction Department of Commerce Unspecified n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 Twelve recommendations were produced by the committee in FY 2008; six in FY 2009; 14 in FY 2010. At least two recommendations were provided for each NEHRP agency; others were provided for the management, coordination, and implementation of NEHRP as a whole. 32 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 647e172a-00ce-417e-b5f7-1e7b0d635b42 Recommendations Fully Accepted Percentage Advisory Committee on Earthquake Hazards Reduction 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 About one-third of the recommendations have been fully implemented. This is a multi-agency program; therefore, the FY 2010 recommendations are still being reviewed by the agencies. Many of the recommendations are tied to funding issues that are governed by appropriations and pending legislation. 33 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 951238d9-83b9-4e0e-b821-244296d9310a Recommendations Partially Accepted Percentage Advisory Committee on Earthquake Hazards Reduction Department of Commerce There are sometimes a few proposals which were not funded in their entirety, those few being scaled back from their original level of requested funding (allowable under the program). n/a 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 The four agencies have implemented at least half of the recommendations. All indications are that the House Science Committee will change the agency responsible for leading post-earthquake investigations to NIST. The National Research Council was retained to develop a twenty-year roadmap for the research and implementation activities needed to support the goals and objectives outlined in the new Strategic Plan. 50 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2010-10-01 2011-09-30 2013-07-09 http://explore.data.gov/resource/datasets/c5i3-bb9j Gannon (J.)
