The SERDP Council oversees the management of SERDP and is the sole funding approval authority. The Council is a multiagency body that is intended to maximize exchange of information and to minimize duplication of environmental research activities through close coordination with the military departments and Defense agencies, the DOE, the EPA, and other departments and agencies of the federal, state, and local governments. Members of the Council are designated in the SERDP statute.
Executive Working Group (EWG)
The EWG is an extension of the SERDP Council and serves as a working-level representation of the Council. This group contributes to the SERDP investment strategy and annual program plan development. The EWG members facilitate the submittal of proposals from the federal sector.
