Recommendations for appropriate standards to determine fair and appropriate compensation; 3. An assessment of tribal selfdetermination and sovereignty interests implicated by applications for rights-ofway on tribal land; and 4. An analysis of relevant national energy transportation policies. The Departments propose the following work plan to meet the specific requirements of the Act and meet the congressionally mandated deadline for submittal of the final report. 1. DOI and DOE plan to conduct a series of pre-scoping phone calls and meetings with selected tribal leaders, members of the energy industry, appropriate government entities and affected businesses and consumers to discuss the various aspects of the report called for by section 1813. Participants in this pre-scoping work group will be identified through suggestions tribal leaders, other prominent Indian groups, business associations, and government organizations. The outcome of these prescoping discussions will provide useful detail and direction for the subsequent stages of the work plan. 2. DOI and DOE propose to contract with a Department of Energy National Laboratory to prepare an analysis of historical rates of compensation for pipelines crossing Indian land (as specified in section 1813(b)(1)), using a case study approach. We plan to direct the analysts to solicit and collect data from the Bureau of Indian Affairs, Tribal Governments, the energy industry, and other appropriate sources (e.g., the National Archives and Records Administration) for this analysis. 3. In February 2006, DOI and DOE plan to jointly conduct a 2-day nationwide scoping meeting with presentations from all affected groups, soliciting input on the subjects of appropriate standards and procedures for determining fair and appropriate compensation, tribal self-determination and sovereignty interests, and relevant national energy transportation policies. At this meeting, we propose to establish several working groups to solicit and further develop information on each of these subjects. 4. Between February and May 2006, DOI and DOE plan to conduct up to two workshops for each of these working groups. We expect to draw extensively on the results of the groups’ efforts in preparing the report to Congress. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:56 Dec 28, 2005 Jkt 208001 5. In May 2006, DOI and DOE plan to prepare a draft report, send copies to the tribes, and publish a notice of availability in the Federal Register. 6. Between May 2006 and mid-July 2006, DOI and DOE plan to conduct three regional Tribal consultation meetings to present the draft report and to receive written and oral comments on the draft. 7. DOI and DOE will consider these comments in preparing a final report for delivery to Congress by August 7, 2006. The Departments request public comment on proposed work plan in addition to any other areas of concern regarding the section 1813 study. We will accept comments until January 20, 2006.
