The Board will meet at the call of the Board’s Designated Federal Officer, in consultation with the Board’s Chair and the DoD Chief Management Officer (CMO). The estimated number of meetings of the Board is four per year. Meetings typically are not closed to the public unless the DoD determines that items on the planned agenda meet the closed meeting provisions of 5 U.S.C. § 552b(c). Pursuant to DoD policy, closed meetings can only be authorized by the Secretary, Deputy Secretary, or DoD Sponsor (DoD CMO) and only after consultation with the Office of the DoD General Counsel.
