VBDR Operational Structure
Public Law 108-183 required the Secretaries of
VA and DOD to jointly review the mission, procedures and administration
of the Veterans' Dose Reconstruction Program. It also required the
Secretaries to jointly take action to ensure ongoing independent
review and oversight of the Program including the establishment
of an Advisory Board.
The Board, which is known as the Veterans' Advisory Board on Dose Reconstruction (VBDR) meets periodically throughout the year. Meeting locations are determined based on Veteran demographic data provided by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and input from Veteran service organizations.
The agenda for VBDR meetings will be established
by the Chairman in consultation with the Board members, the Designated Federal Officer, and the VBDR Program Administrator.
The VBDR has 4 subcommittees:
