The National Board of the Fund for the Improvement of Postsecondary Education is established under Title VII, Part B, section 742 of the Higher Education Amendments of 1998 (20 U.S.C. 1138a). The National Board of the Fund is authorized to recommend to the Director of the Fund and the Assistant Secretary for Postsecondary Education priorities for funding and procedures for grant awards.
On Friday, November 22, 2002, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. the Board will meet in open session. The proposed agenda for the open portion of the meeting will include discussions of the Fund's programs and special initiatives.
On Friday, November 22, 2002, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. the meeting will be closed to the public for the purpose of discussing personnel matters associated with the work of the Board. This portion of the meeting will be closed under the authority of section 10(d) of the Federal Advisory Act (Pub. L. 92-463; 5 U.S.C.A. Appendix 2) and under exemptions (2) and (6) of the Government in the Sunshine Act (Pub. L. 94-409), 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(2) and (6). The review and discussion of Board personnel matters will relate solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of an agency, and may disclose information of a personal nature where disclosure would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy if conducted in open session.
The meeting site is accessible to individuals with disabilities. An individual with a disability who will need an auxiliary aid or service to participate in the meeting (e.g., interpreting service, assistive listening device or materials in an alternate format) should notify the contact person listed in this notice at least two weeks before the scheduled meeting date. Although the Department will attempt to meet a request received after that date, the requested auxiliary aid or service may not be available because of insufficient time to arrange it.
