Augustine Committee: Public Teleconference Set for October 8

Augustine Committee: Public Teleconference Set for October 8

Despite the optimistic assessment of Augustine committee member Les Lyles at Monday’s Space Policy Institute (SPI) meeting that the committee would meet its goal of submitting a final report by the end of September, that clearly will not happen. Instead, the Augustine committee has scheduled a public teleconference for October 8, 2009. Public meetings are required under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) for deliberations by federally-chartered advisory committees. According to the announcement, the only topic for the one-hour teleconference (1:00-2:00 EDT) is finalization of the scoring of the options the committee presented in its summary report. The following numbers are available to listen to the teleconference:

Toll-free number: 1-888-373-5705

Other number: 1-719-457-3840

Participant Passcode: 190078
