App. 2, 10(d) and Public Law 103–202, § 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, 10(d) and vested in me by VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:53 Oct 23, 2015 Jkt 238001 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)(1)(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 to making its final decisions on major financing operations. Historically, this advice has been offered by debt management advisory 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, 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 statement of economic conditions and financing estimates. This briefing will give the press an opportunity to ask questions about financing projections. The day after the Committee meeting, Treasury will release the minutes of the meeting, any charts that were discussed at the meeting, and the Committee’s report to the Secretary. The Office of Debt Management is responsible for maintaining records of debt management advisory committee meetings and for providing annual reports setting forth a summary of Committee activities and such other matters as may be informative to the public consistent with the policy of 5 U.S.C. 552(b).

Debt Management Advisory Committee Meeting

    Notice is hereby given, pursuant to 5 U.S.C. App. 2, 10(a)(2), that 
a meeting will be held at the Hay-Adams Hotel, 16th Street and 
Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC, on November 3, 2015 at 11:30 
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, 
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, 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, Sec.  202(c)(1)(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 
to making its final decisions on major financing operations. 
Historically, this advice has been offered by debt management advisory 
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, 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 
statement of economic conditions and financing estimates. This briefing 
will give the press an opportunity to ask questions about financing 
projections. The day after the Committee meeting, Treasury will release 
the minutes of the meeting, any charts that were discussed at the 
meeting, and the Committee's report to the Secretary.
