The Minerals Management Service
has three advisory committees; the
Royalty Policy Committee, and the
Scientific Committee. They are charted under the provisions of the
Committee Act (FACA).

other officials of the Department in implementing the OCS Lands Act, as amended, the
Federal Oil and Gas Royalty
Management Act of 1982, the Geothermal Steam Act of 1970, and the mineral leasing laws
for coal and other solid mineral leases and agreements.
Committee activities are reported annually in a report titled "Report
to the Congress from the President on Federal Advisory Committee Activities".
It is part of FACA database, which is used by
Federal agencies to continuously manage an average of 1,000 advisory committees
government-wide This database is also used by the Congress to perform oversight of related
Executive Branch programs and by the public, the media, and others, to stay abreast of
important developments resulting from advisory committee activities.
