On March 7, BIS published a notice in the Federal Register to recruit private-sector members to serve on its seven Technical Advisory Committees (TAC). The TACs advise the Department of Commerce on the technical parameters for export controls applicable to dual-use commodities and technology and on the administration of those controls. Each is composed of representatives from industry, academic leaders, and members of the U.S. Government representing diverse points of view on the concerns of the exporting community.

To respond to this recruitment notice, please send a copy of your resume to Ms. Yvette Springer at Yvette.Springer@bis.doc.gov. This Notice of Recruitment will be open for one year.
