The National Science Board (NSB), pursuant to NSF regulations (45
CFR part 614), the National Science Foundation Act, as amended, (42
U.S.C. 1862n-5), and the Government in the Sunshine Act (5 U.S.C.
552b), hereby gives an update to the scheduling of a previously noticed
meeting for the transaction of NSB business as described below. The
meeting was originally noticed in the Federal Register on November 18,
2019 at 84 FR 63680-81.
TIME AND DATE: The final session of the meeting on Wednesday, November
20, 2019 from 1:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. EST, a plenary open session, was
to be held in the boardroom on the 2nd floor of the NSF headquarters,
2415 Eisenhower Avenue, Alexandria, VA 22314. However, a fire alarm
required NSF and NSB staff to evacuate that floor just as the session
was to begin. Because most NSB members had airplane flights leaving
shortly after the meeting was to end, the NSB members and other staff
gathered in the lobby of a nearby hotel and conducted the session. One
of the items was time-sensitive and the vote could not practically be
rescheduled in a timely way.
Open Session: 1:00-1:30 p.m.
NSB Chair's Opening Remarks
Approval of Prior Minutes
Open Committee Reports
Vote on Merit Review Digest
Votes on OIG Semiannual Report and NSF Management Response
NSB Chair's Closing Remarks
The agenda items were covered as indicated. An audio recording of
the session is available upon request.
