It is imperative that the meeting be held on this date to accommodate the scheduling priorities of the key participants. Due to administrative error, this advisory committee meeting notice is being published with less than 15 calendar day advance publication requirement. Exceptional circumstances warrant proceeding with the meeting. Subcommittee members were informed of the meeting date several months ago, and have made firm schedule commitments for this meeting. To mitigate the late publication, the Agency will issue a NASA Solicitation and Proposal Integrated Review and Evaluation System (NSPIRES) announcement to members of the scientific community. In addition, corrective action is being taken by the Agency to prevent future late meeting notices.
