SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Advisory Council on Education Statistics 
(ACES) is established under Section 406(c)(1) of the Education 
Amendments of 1974, Pub. L. 93-380. The Council is established to 
review general policies for the operation of the National Center for 
Education Statistics (NCES) in the Office of Educational Research and 
Improvement and is responsible for advising on standards to insure that 
statistics and analyses disseminated by NCES are of high quality and 
are not subject to political influence. In addition; ACES is required 
to advise the Commissioner of NCES and the National Assessment 
Governing Board on technical and statistical matters related to the 
National Assessment of Education Progress (NAEP).
    The proposed agenda for the Policy Committee's meeting includes the 
      * Review and discussion of cost estimates for planned
procurements in the hear 2000. Because the discussion will include 
information on cost estimates on future procurements, this session must 
be closed to the public. The public disclosure of this information 
would be likely to significantly frustrate the implementation of 
planned agency action if conducted in open session. Such matters are 
protected by exemption (9)(B) of section 552(c) of title 5 U.S.C.
    A summary of the activities and related matters, which are 
informative to the public and consistent with the policy of 5 U.S.C. 
552b, will be available to the public within 14 days after the 
meetings. Records are kept of all Council proceedings and are available 
for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Director, Advisory 
Council on Education Statistics, 555 New Jersey Avenue, NW, Room 400J, 
Washington, DC 20208-7575.

Acting Assistant Secretary for Educational Research and Improvement.
