Technical Steering Committee

The CMI is guided by a Technical Steering Committee (TSC) with members from the University, BOEM, and the State of Alaska. With TSC input, the University of Alaska Fairbanks College of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences provides administrative oversight of the CMI as a special project under the Office of the Dean. Specific administrative responsibilities include:

  • Facilitating annual research funding cycles from initial call to award
  • Technical Steering Committee support/coordination
  • Program support for researchers; liaison with BOEM regarding projects and reporting
  • Monitoring cooperative agreements and assisting with funding issues
  • Study publications and coordination of a public Annual Research Review seminar
