Departmental Offices; Debt Management Advisory Committee Meeting

    Notice is hereby given, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. App. 2, Sec.  
10(a)(2), that a meeting will be held at the Hay-Adams Hotel, 16th 
Street and Pennsylvania Avenue, NW., Washington, DC, on November 2, 
2010 at 10 a.m. of the following debt management advisory committee:

Treasury Borrowing Advisory Committee of The Securities Industry and 
Financial Markets Association.

    The agenda for the meeting provides for a charge by the Secretary 
of the Treasury or his designate that the Committee discuss particular 
issues and conduct a working session. Following the working session, 
the Committee will present a written report of its recommendations. The 
meeting will be closed to the public, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. App. 2, 
Sec.  10(d) and Public Law 103-202, Sec.  202(c)(1)(B)(31 U.S.C. 3121 
note).
    This notice shall constitute my determination, pursuant to the 
authority placed in heads of agencies by 5 U.S.C. App. 2, Sec.  10(d) 
and vested in me by Treasury Department Order No. 101-05, that the 
meeting will consist of discussions and debates of the issues presented 
to the Committee by the Secretary of the Treasury and the making of 
recommendations of the Committee to the Secretary, pursuant to Public 
Law 103-202, 202(c)(l)(B).
    Thus, this information is exempt from disclosure under that 
provision and 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(3)(B). In addition, the meeting is 
concerned with information that is exempt from disclosure under 5 
U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(A). The public interest requires that such meetings 
be closed to the public because the Treasury Department requires frank 
and full advice from representatives of the financial community prior

committees established by the several major segments of the financial 
community. When so utilized, such a committee is recognized to be an 
advisory committee under 5 U.S.C. App. 2, Sec.  3.
    Although the Treasury's final announcement of financing plans may 
not reflect the recommendations provided in reports of the committee, 
premature disclosure of the committee's deliberations and reports would 
be likely to lead to significant financial speculation in the 
securities market. Thus, this meeting falls within the exemption 
covered by 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(A).
    Treasury staff will provide a technical briefing to the press on 
the day before the committee meeting, following the release of a

projections. The day after the committee meeting, Treasury will release
