Meetings Closed to the Public: By default, the DPA requires meetings held to implement a voluntary agreement or plan of action be open to the public.6 However, attendance may be limited if the Sponsor 7 of the voluntary agreement finds that the matter to be discussed at a meeting falls within the purview of matters described in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c). The Sponsor of the Voluntary Agreement, the FEMA Administrator, found that these meetings to implement the Voluntary Agreement involved matters which fell within the purview of matters described in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c) and were therefore closed to the public.8 Specifically, the meetings to implement the Voluntary Agreement could have required participants to disclose trade secrets or commercial or financial information that is privileged or confidential. Disclosure of such information allows for meetings to be closed pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(4). In addition, the success of the Voluntary Agreement depends wholly on the willing and enthusiastic participation of private sector participants. Failure to close these meetings could have had a strong chilling effect on participation by the private sector and caused a substantial risk that sensitive information would be prematurely released to the public, resulting in participants withdrawing their support from the Voluntary Agreement and thus significantly frustrating the implementation of the Voluntary Agreement. Frustration of an agency’s objective due to premature disclosure of information allows for the closure of a meeting to pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(B).

necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0002; Airport Security Part 1542. The 
information collection is used to determine compliance with 49 CFR part 
1542 \1\ and to ensure passenger safety and security by monitoring 
airport operator security procedures. The information collection and 
other recordkeeping requirements that currently fall under this OMB 
control number are associated with an airport operator's compliance 
with TSA's regulatory requirements, including the following: (1) 
Development of an Airport Security Program (ASP) and submission to TSA; 
(2) submission of ASP amendments to TSA when applicable; (3) collection 
of data necessary to complete a fingerprint-based criminal history 
records check (CHRC) for those individuals with unescorted access 
authority to a Security Identification Display Area (SIDA), and those 
with authority to authorize others to have unescorted access authority
