Meeting Agenda: Beginning at 8:00 a.m. on June 18 through the end of the meeting on June 19 the DPB will have secret through top secret (SCI) level discussions on national security issues regarding strategic choices within budgetary constraints and security cooperation.
Meeting Accessibility: 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 Under Secretary of Defense (Policy), in consultation with the Department of Defense FACA Attorney, has determined in writing that this meeting be closed to the public because the discussions fall under the purview of 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(1) and are so inextricably intertwined with unclassified material that they cannot reasonably be segregated into separate discussions without disclosing secret or classified material.
