Start Preamble


Department of the Navy, DoD.




The CNO Executive Panel will report on the findings and recommendations of the Subcommittee “The Navy & The Nation” to the Chief of Naval Operations. The matters to be discussed during the meeting are: Campbell-Ewald Advertising contract, Branding project, and marketing & recruiting methods; CNO's Engagement and long-range schedule. Each topic under each of these headings relates solely to the internal personnel rules and practices of the agency; discloses privileged/confidential trade secrets, commercial, and financial information; pertains to the CNO's classified “SECRET” long-range schedule, and discusses information the premature disclosure of which would be likely to significantly frustrate the fair bidding process for a major DON contract which makes this information exempt from open meeting disclosure pursuant to 5 U.S.C. sections 552b(c)(1) and (4).


The meeting will be held on December 15, 2008, from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m.


The meeting will be held at Center for Naval Analyses (CNA), Room 1A01, 4825 Mark Center Drive, Alexandria, VA 22311.
