At the meeting, the Acting Chief Privacy Officer will provide an update on the activities of the Privacy Office. The subcommittees will update the Committee on the work currently being conducted and plan to finalize the Framework for Privacy Analysis of Programs, Technologies, and Applications that was discussed at the September 28, 2005, Meeting in Bellingham, WA.
