Abstract

In February 2013, the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) announced a partnership that included formation of the National Commission on Forensic Science (NCFS) and what is now the Organization of Scientific Area Committees (OSAC). As a Federal Advisory Committee for DOJ, NCFS involves public meetings, public input on draft documents, and an open website sharing meeting materials and final documents (https://www.justice.gov/ncfs). Video recordings of past meetings are available as well (http://www.nist.gov/forensics/ncfs.cfm). Co-chaired by Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates and NIST Director Willie May, the Commission meets four times a year and involves energetic discussions on a variety of issues.
