research priorities for the Institute and that, upon the Board's 
approval of the priorities, the Director make the Institute's plan for 
addressing the priorities available for public comment.
    On June 16, 2005, the Institute published a notice inviting 
comments on the priorities it planned to propose to the Board (70 FR 
35072). During its meeting on September 6 through 7, 2005, the Board

this notice describes the Institute's plan for addressing those 
priorities.
    Through this notice, the Director seeks public comment before 
finalizing the Institute's plan for addressing the Board-approved 
priorities.
