Advisory committees are chartered by the IJIS Institute Board of Directors to provide input and recommendations to the Institute and to other organizations on specific topical areas not related to a single project or task. Although both Members and Associates may serve on advisory committees, only Member companies are eligible to chair these committees. The chair of each committee is appointed by the chairman of the Board of Directors, and each chair appoints the committee members.
Standing Committees are designed to carry on and facilitate the work of the Board of Directors in its governance of the Institute. They are responsible for the continuing design and development of policies and for specific functions related to the operations of the IJIS Institute. Current standing committees exist for the following functions: Audit, Executive, Finance, Funding Development, Governance, Grievance, Membership, and Personnel.

Active task forces and working groups include:
