President’s Project Advisory Committee (PPAC)

The PPAC provides external advice on FRIB activities to the MSU President and Provost. More specifically, the committee provides continuity of oversight of the FRIB Project on behalf of the MSU President and Provost until the completion of the project, and reviews progress of the FRIB Project, especially on matters related to construction planning, project management, technical performance, user issues, and safety.
