Purpose of Meeting
To obtain, review and evaluate classified information related to the Committee's mission to advise on technology security, combating weapons of mass destruction (WMD), chemical and biological defense, the future of the Cooperative Threat Reduction program, and other matters related to the Department of Defense's mission.
Beginning at 9 a.m. through the end of the meeting, the committee will receive secret level briefings on WMD threats, the Defense Threat Reduction Agency, and the status of the Cooperative Threat Reduction program. The TRAC will hold classified discussions on these and related national security matters.
From 8 a.m. until 9 a.m. on Thursday, October 21, 2010, the TRAC will hold an administrative meeting under 41 CFR 102-3.160(b) to swear in its members and provide them with administrative information from a Federal officer or agency.
Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552b, as amended, and 41 CFR 102-3.155, the Department of Defense has determined that the meeting shall be closed to the public. The Undersecretary of Defense (Acquisition, Technology and Logistics), in consultation with the Office of the DoD FACA Attorney, has determined in writing that this meeting be closed to the public because the discussions fall under the purview of Title 5, United States Code, section 552b(c)(1) and are inextricably intertwined with the unclassified material that they cannot reasonably be segregated into separate discussions without disclosing secret or classified material.Start Printed Page 60431
