About US

The IT Chartered Advisory Committee was established in 2015 by the Surgeon General and the United States Public Health Service to provide advice and consultation to the Office of the Surgeon General on issues related to Information Technology pertinent to officers in the USPHS. The ICAC voting membership is comprised of a representative of each of the Professional Advisory Committees and two to four representatives from the remaining Chartered Advisory Groups.

We support the IT needs of the Office of the Surgeon General (OSG) and Professional Advisory Committees (PACs)/Chartered Advisory Groups (CAGs) through the Director of Division of Systems Integrations (DSI), OSG.  The IT Chartered Advisory Committee (ICAC) will focus on continued support of the PAC/CAG web sites and other IT technical assistance to benefit USPHS Commissioned Corps (CC).



The ICAC serves in a resource and advisory capacity to assist in the development, coordination, technical support, and evaluation of activities related to the professional discipline(s) it represents in the PHS with the specific objectives of: 

  1. Migrating and consolidating PAC/CAG websites and web content to government hosted servers identified by DSI.
  2. Providing support and IT technical assistance to individual PAC/CAGs related to the ongoing maintenance of websites on government hosted servers.
  3. Coordinating service requests for PAC/CAG website server support for sites.
  4. Providing assistance to DSI on miscellaneous projects upon request.
  5. Providing a conduit for communications between DSI and the CC.

Additional functions include Content Management System maintenance and development, management of user accounts and roles, and guidance/training on IT policies affecting PHS websites (508 compliance and social media).
