security, combating weapons of mass destruction (C-WMD), counter 
terrorism and counter proliferation.
    Agenda: Beginning at 8:30 a.m., December 6, and through the end of 
the meeting on December 7, the committee will receive classified 
Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (C-WMD) briefings from the 
Department of Defense and the Intelligence Community. The committee

Addressing C-WMD Capabilities Needs and Gaps for 2020, the Cooperative 
Threat Reduction Program and the Way Forward, the Global C-WMD 
Awareness System, and Securing Special Nuclear Materials.
    Meeting Accessibility: Pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552b, as amended, and 
41 CFR 102-3.155, the Department of Defense has determined that the 
meeting shall be closed to the public. The Under Secretary of Defense 
for Acquisition, Technology and Logistics, in consultation with the DoD 
FACA Attorney, has determined in writing that the public interest 
requires all sessions of this meeting be closed to the public because 
the discussions will be concerned with classified information and 
matters covered by Title 5, United States Code, Section 552b(c)(1) and 
are inextricably intertwined with the unclassified material which 
cannot reasonably be segregated into separate discussions without 
disclosing secret material.
