Directorate Advisory Committee (DAC) for the Physical and Computational Sciences Directorate

The Physical & Computational Sciences Directorate (PCSD) Directorate Advisory Committee (DAC) reviews the directorate's programmatic activities and provides feedback to Lab leadership on its science programs, technology programs, related operations, and capability stewardship efforts. The DAC team - with more than a dozen members from laboratories and universities across the country and around the globe - advises Lab leadership on the quality of the scientific and technology activities for which the directorate is responsible; they assess the relevance and impact of those activities to the sponsor's needs and to the Laboratory's strategic plan, mission, and goals.
