The SIC will develop through the USGS “…a consolidated, externally peer-reviewed research program that integrates the FWS and NPS requirements, and which includes a detailed list of research tasks and timelines to support critical decision points associated with the restoration effort.” The USGS, through the SIC, will ensure that “…data collected through these activities …meet Federal Geographic Data Committee (FGDC) standards as applicable. ” {{Once the SIC meets, this section will be expanded with more detailed duties and time lines.}}

  2. MEMBERSHIP: This Committee will consist of senior science managers for each of the four USGS disciplines, the USGS Greater Everglades Science Program Coordinator, plus a member from the FWS and NPS. The FWS and NPS South Florida Everglades Principals will appoint their members to this Committee. The USGS Greater Everglades Science Program Coordinator will chair this Committee.

  3. MEETINGS: It is anticipated that the Committee will meet no less than quarterly, and more often during the process of soliciting and evaluating proposals.
