SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Notice of this meeting is given under the 
Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. App. (Pub. L. 92-463). 41 CFR 
102-3.150(b) (2001) permits that, ``in exceptional circumstances, the 
agency * * * may give less than 15 calendar days notice, provided that 
the reasons for doing so are included in the advisory committee meeting 
notice published in the Federal Register.'' This notice appears less 
than 15 calendar days before the meeting date because the Department 
was unable to obtain suitable meeting space in time to allow for 
routine 15-day notice.
    During the meeting, the DHS Chief Privacy Officer will provide an 
update on the activities of the DHS Privacy Office. Invited speakers 
will discuss the Presidential transition and the Privacy Office 
priorities for the future. The Subcommittees will update the Committee 
on their current work. A tentative agenda is posted on the Privacy 
Advisory Committee Web site at www.dhs.gov/privacy.
    At the discretion of the Chair, members of the public may make 
brief (i.e., no more than three minutes) oral presentations from 3:30 
p.m.-4 p.m. If you would like to make an oral presentation at the 
meeting, please register in advance or sign up on the day of the
