About

The ESCOP Budget and Legislative Committee (BLC) is charged with developing annual justifications for the federal budget process, in consultation with other sections of the BAA and other stakeholders; recommending appropriate science and technology programs that are linked to multistate and national research initiatives; and providing guidance in the assessment of impacts resulting from SAES/ARD system.  The Finance Committee (FINC), a subcommittee of the ESCOP BLC, manages our investments operating under the Investment Policy.
