This chart is described in the Project Management Plan (restricted).
The Long Baseline Neutrino Committee (LBNC) that is composed of internationally prominent scientists with relevant expertise provides external scientific peer review for the two projects regularly.
Close and continuous coordination between DUNE and LBNF will be required to ensure the success of the combined enterprise. An Experiment-Facility Interface Group (EFIG) was established in January 2015 to oversee and ensure the required coordination both during the design and construction and the operational phases of the program.
International Neutrino Council (INC)
The International Neutrino Council (INC) for the Long-Baseline Neutrino
Program is a consulting body composed of regional representatives and
representatives of government funding agencies that provide major
contributions to the Long-Baseline Neutrino Facility (LBNF)
infrastructure and to the Deep Underground Neutrino Experiment (DUNE).
The INC acts as an international consulting body to the U.S. Department
of Energy (DOE) and the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory
Directorate and facilitates high-level global coordination across the
entire LBNF and DUNE enterprise. The delegation within the INC is
chaired by the DOE Office of Science Associate Director for High Energy
Physics and includes the Fermilab Director in its membership. The
Council convenes annually as needed and provides pertinent advice to the
host funding agency (DOE), and to LBNF and DUNE through the Fermilab

The Resources Review Boards (RRB) are composed of representatives of
all funding agencies that sponsor LBNF and DUNE, and of the Fermilab
management. The RRB provides focused monitoring and detailed oversight
of each of the Projects. The Fermilab Director in coordination with the
DUNE Resources Coordinator defines its membership. A representative from
the Fermilab Directorate chairs the boards and organize regular
meetings to ensure the flow of resources needed for the smooth progress
of the enterprise and for its successful completion. The managements of
the DUNE Collaboration and the LBNF Project participates in the RRB
meetings and make regular reports to the RRB on technical, managerial,
financial and administrative matters, as well as status and progress of
the DUNE Collaboration.
There are two groups within the RRB: RRB-LBNF and RRB-DUNE. Each of
these groups monitors progress and addresses the issues specific to its
area while the whole RRB deals with matters that concern the entire
enterprise. The RRB will meet biannually; these meetings will start with
a plenary opening session and be followed by RRB-LBNF and RRB-DUNE
sessions. As DUNE progresses toward experimental operations,
RRB-Computing sessions will convene.
All information about RRB meetings, including Agenda and documents can be found in the Indico pages (access requires authorization).
