The meeting is to be held on Tuesday, February 22, 2000 from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m., and Wednesday, February 23, 11 a.m. until 12 noon meeting segment are open to the members of the general public. The FCC will attempt to accommodate as many participants as possible. The public may submit written statements to the NANC, which must be received two business days before the meeting. In addition, oral statements at the meeting by parties or entities not represented on the NANC will be permitted to the extent time permits. Such statements will be limited to five minutes in length by any one party or entity, and requests to make an oral statement must be received two business days before the meeting. Requests to make an oral statement or provide written comments to the NANC should be sent to Jeannie Grimes at the address under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT stated above.

It has been determined that the portion of the meeting to be held on Wednesday, February 23, 2000 from 8:30 a.m. until 11 a.m. will be closed to the general public. In response to NANC Chairman John R. Hoffman's request, after review by the General Counsel, FCC Chairman William E. Kennard, has determined that this portion of the February 23, 2000, meeting of the NANC may be closed to the public. In making this determination, Chairman Kennard stated: Given that the NANC's review, at the meeting, of the proposal by NeuStar, Inc., to provide number pooling administration is likely to involve disclosure of trade secrets and commercial or financial information obtained from a person and privileged or confidential, that portion of the NANC meeting is subject to the Government in Sunshine Act's (GISA) allowance for closure of meetings otherwise required to be open to the public. See GISA Section 552b(c)(4). Under the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C., App. 2 (1988) (FACA), the requirement that Federal Advisory Committee meetings be open to the public is, therefore, not applicable to the above-specified portion of the February 23, 2000 meeting of the NANC.
