The U.S. Department of Energy's (DOE or Department) National Transportation Stakeholders Forum (NTSF) is the mechanism through which the Department communicates at a national level with States and Tribes about DOE shipments of radioactive waste and materials, as well as occasional high-visibility shipments that are nonradioactive. The purpose of the NTSF is to bring transparency, openness, and accountability to DOE's offsite transportation activities through collaboration with State and Tribal governments.

DOE engages with States and Tribes through five committees representing Tribes and regional groups. Information about these committees can be reached through the links below.
