The Oak Ridge Site Specific Advisory Board (ORSSAB) bylaws document contains the board's mission, functions, scope and accountability information, as well as  governance rules and procedures.

The board holds an annual meeting to discuss the topics it should address in the coming year. Based on the outcome of that meeting ORSSAB and DOE agree and sign a yearly Work Plan document.  It includes the scheduled dates, times and topics of board and committee meetings for the coming year.  However, the Work Plan is understood to be a living document that may change during the course of the year as needed.
