    Procedure: On March 20, 2014, from 11:30 a.m. to approximately 2:10 
p.m., the meeting is open to the public. Interested persons may present 
data, information, or views, orally or in writing, on issues pending 
before the committee. Written submissions may be made to the contact 
person on or before March 13, 2014. Oral presentations from the public 
will be scheduled between approximately 1:10 p.m. and 2:10 p.m. Those 
individuals interested in making formal oral presentations should 
notify the contact person and submit a brief statement of the general 
nature of the evidence or arguments they wish to present, the names and 
addresses of proposed participants, and an indication of the 
approximate time requested to make their presentation on or before 
March 4, 2014. Time allotted for each presentation may be limited. If 
the number of registrants requesting to speak is greater than can be

interested persons regarding their request to speak by March 5, 2014.
    Closed Committee Deliberations: On March 20, 2014, from

unwarranted invasion of personal privacy (5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(6)). The 
committee will discuss the report of the intramural research programs 
and make recommendations regarding personnel staffing decisions.
