SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Objective. The purpose of this meeting is to (1) deliberate the options developed by the HR Design Team; (2) to hold discussions on possible modifications to those options, and (3) to determine which options should be forwarded by the Senior Review Committee for consideration by the Secretary and Director. In addition to these formal agenda items, the Committee will hear from members of the public. Due to the complexity of the topics to be reviewed and the length of the meeting, the following tentative schedule is nominally established: On Monday, October 20, and Tuesday, October 21, the SRC will hear presentations on and deliberate the options. On Tuesday, October 21, the SRC will hear from members of the public who have requested time to make oral presentations. On Wednesday, October 22, the SRC will continue its deliberations on all of the options presented and determine which options should be forwarded by the Senior Review Committee for consideration by the Secretary and Director.

Public Presentations. Requests to make oral presentations should reach the Designated Federal Official at DHS on or before October 13, 2003. Oral presentations will be limited to approximately 5 minutes to allow sufficient time for any questions from the Committee. Oral presentations may be supplemented by written statements; written statements submitted for the record should be limited to no more than fifteen (15) pages. If there is insufficient time to honor all requests for oral presentations, the Designated Federal Official (DFO) will seek to ensure a full range of views and opinions are heard. Members of the public who wish to file a written statement with the SRC should send it to the DFO (see addresses above); written statements should be received on or before October 15, 2003. All written submissions will become part of the Committee record and deliberations.
