For each topic the NSTAC addressed, the Issue Review provides the following information when applicable: names of the investigating groups, length of time required for the investigation, issue background, a synopsis of actions and recommendations, measures resulting from NSTAC recommendations, reports issued, and members of the current/active investigating groups. Since the completion of the NSTAC 2008-2009 cycle at the 2009 meeting, the Office of the Manager, National Communications System (OMNCS) has worked with the NSTAC, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Executive Office of the President to forward NSTAC recommendations to the President and to Federal Government departments and agencies for comment and consideration. As each of these recommendations moves forward, the Issue Review will annually update the status of each recommendation to provide updated information to industry, Government, and the public on issues vital to national security and emergency preparedness (NS/EP) communications."
