Accordingly, the Advisory Committee Management Officer for the Department of Defense, pursuant to 41 CFR 102– 3.150(b), waives the 15-calendar day notification requirement. This meeting is being held under the provisions of the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) of 1972 (5 U.S.C., Appendix, as amended), the Government in the Sunshine Act of 1976 (5 U.S.C. 552b, as amended), and 41 CFR 102–3.150. The mission of the DSB is to provide independent advice and recommendations on matters relating to the DoD’s scientific and technical enterprise. The objective of the meeting is to obtain, review, and evaluate classified information related to the DSB’s mission. DSB membership will meet with DoD Leadership to discuss current and future national security challenges within the Department. This meeting will focus on the new administration’s guidance and directives related to nuclear deterrence, countering anti-access systems with longer range and standoff capabilities, and survivable logistics. The DSB will host guest speakers from across the Department of Defense who will provide their perspective on the future of National Security under the new administration. The invited speakers are the Honorable Jim Mattis, Secretary of Defense; Honorable Robert Work, Deputy Secretary of Defense; General Paul Selva, Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; LtGen J. Kevin McLaughlin, Deputy Commander, U.S. Cyber Command; and Vice Admiral James Syring, Director, Missile Defense Agency.

The determination is based on the consideration that it is expected that discussions throughout will involve classified matters of national security concern. Such classified material is so intertwined with the unclassified information that it cannot reasonably be segregated into PO 00000 Frm 00016 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 10343 separate discussions without defeating the effectiveness and meaning of the overall meeting. To permit the meeting to be open to the public would preclude discussion of such matters and would greatly diminish the ultimate utility of the DSB’s findings and recommendations to the Secretary of Defense and to the USD(AT&L). In accordance with section 10(a)(3)of the FACA and 41 CFR 102–3.105(j) and 102–3.140, interested persons may submit a written statement for consideration by the DSB at any time regarding its mission or in response to the stated agenda of a planned meeting.

The DFO will review all submissions with the DSB Chair and ensure they are provided to members of the DSB before its final deliberations on February 16, 2017. Dated: February 6, 2017.
