Regional Tribal Operations Committee (RTOC)
The Regional Tribal Operations Committee (RTOC) is a working committee of EPA and tribal personnel co-chaired by an EPA representative and a tribal representative. EPA designates its RTOC representatives through internal mechanisms. All tribes within Region 9 are considered members of the RTOC. Tribal representatives to the RTOC are selected through government-to-government communication, by tribal leaders in various geographical areas within Region 9.
