NAS consists of an elected membership with extensive, high-level experience in scientific and engineering research, dedicated to the furtherance of science and technology and to their use for the general welfare. Upon the authority of the charter granted to it by the Congress in 1863, the Academy has a mandate that requires it to advise the federal government on scientific and technical matters.

This independence enables the Government to receive an unbiased assessment in the areas of management and policy issues.
