This notice is provided in accordance with the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (5 U.S.C. app. 2). All sessions of the meetings will be devoted to executive sessions that will include discussions and technical examination of information related to sea basing technologies. These briefings and discussions will contain proprietary information and classified information that is specifically authorized under criteria established by Executive Order to be kept secret in the interest of national defense and are in fact properly classified pursuant to such Executive Order. The proprietary, classified and non-classified matters to be discussed are so inextricably intertwined as to preclude opening any portion of the meetings.
In accordance with 5 U.S.C. app. 2, section 10(d), the Secretary of the Navy has determined in writing that the public interest requires that all sessions of the meetings be closed to the public because they will be concerned with matters listed in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(1) and (4). Due to an unavoidable delay in administrative processing, the 15 days advance notice could not be provided.Start Signature
