FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT:
Dr. Paul Braden, Manager, National Medal of Technology Nomination 
Evaluation Committee, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th and 
Constitution Avenue, NW., Herbert C. Hoover Building, room 4418, 
Washington, DC 20230, (202) 482-5572.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A Notice of Determination to close the 
meetings of the Committee to the public on the basis of Section 10(d) 
of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, 5 U.S.C. app. 2, as amended, 
section 552b(c)(9)(B) of title 5, United States Code was approved by 
the Chief Financial Officer and Assistant Secretary for Administration, 
with the concurrence of the General Counsel on (December 22, 1993), in 
accordance with the Federal Advisory Committee Act, since premature 
publicity about candidates under consideration for the Medal, who may 
or may not ultimately receive the award, would be likely to discourage 
nominations for the Medal. This would be likely to significantly 
frustrate implementation of a proposed agency action. A copy of the 
Notice of Determination is available for public inspection and copying 
in the Central Reference and Records Inspection Facility, U.S. 
Department of Commerce, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Herbert C. 
Hoover Building, room 6628, Washington, DC 20230. (202) 482-4120.

    Dated: December 23, 1993.
Gary Bachula,
Deputy Under Secretary for Technology.
