Final DHS approval of a grant, license, permit or other formal request from an applicant may be conditioned by provisions for appropriate mitigation of potentially significant environmental impacts. DHS Proponents will ensure that all mitigation committed to as part of the ROD or FONSI is incorporated as conditions in whatever formal approval, contract, or legal document is issued. DHS Proponents will also ensure that appropriate monitoring of the implementation and success of the mitigation is also a condition of the formal documentation. The mitigation shall become a line item in the Proponent’s budget or other funding document, if appropriate, or included in the legal documents implementing the action, e.g., contracts, leases, or grants. Glossary All terminology and definitions contained in 40 CFR Parts 1500–1508 are incorporated into this Directive. The following definitions are provided for other terms and phrases used. Component: Any of the DHS organizational elements, including agencies, bureaus, services, directorates, etc. Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ): NEPA created in the Executive Office of the President a Council on Environmental Quality. The Council is appointed by the President with the advice and consent of the Senate. The President designates the Chairman. The Council, among other things, appraises programs and activities of the federal Government in light of the policy set forth in Title I of NEPA and formulates and recommends national policies to promote improvement of the quality of the environment. Designated DHS Official: Senior DHS officials as designated by the Secretary, Deputy Secretary, or Under Secretaries. Environmental Baseline Survey: A generic term that refers to procedures to investigate a real property asset to determine the presence or absence of natural or man made conditions that would require consideration under various environmental laws and regulations. An environmental baseline survey may or may not be encompassed within an environmental impact evaluation. Environmental Impact Evaluation: A generic term that includes the processes that result in either an Environmental Assessment (EA) or an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS). Environmental VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:55 Apr 03, 2006 Jkt 208001 impact evaluation is often a major portion, if not the whole portion, of an environmental planning process. Environmental Planning Process: The effort required to systematically address the environmental stewardship requirements in public policy during program and project planning, development, and design; and prior to execution. This process may consist wholly or in part of an environmental impact evaluation. The environmental planning process may extend into execution, deployment, or operational phases when the need to control potential for adverse environmental impacts requires mitigation and monitoring. Environmental Site Assessment: A form of environmental baseline survey that typically focuses on determining the potential for soil or water contamination due to historical activities on or adjacent to defined parcels of real property. An environmental site assessment is often conducted in a manner to conform to standards established by ASTM International (formerly the American Society for Testing and Materials). Environmentally Sensitive Areas: These include, but are not limited to: (1) Proposed or designated critical habitat for threatened or endangered species; (2) properties listed or eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places; and (3) areas having special designation or recognition such as prime or unique agricultural lands, coastal zones, designated wilderness or wilderness study areas, wild and scenic rivers, 100 year floodplains, wetlands, sole source aquifers, Marine Sanctuaries, National Wildlife Refuges, National Parks, National Monuments, essential fish habitat, etc. Facility Audit: A procedure to assess ongoing compliance with environmental requirements at operating facilities. National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA): Public Law 91–190, as amended, declares a national policy which will encourage productive and enjoyable harmony between man and his environment; establishes a Council on Environmental Quality in the Executive Office of the President; and requires that every recommendation or report on proposals for legislation and other major federal actions significantly affecting the quality of the human environment, a detailed statement (EIS) by the responsible official. Office of the General Counsel: This phrase refers to the Office of the General Counsel as a component, as defined in the DHS Delegations of Authority. Proponent: The identified project or program manager and may reside at any PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 level of the organization of a component. Normally this person resides in the operational line of authority. The Proponent has the immediate authority to decide a course of action or has the authority to recommend course of action, from among options, to the next higher organization level (e.g. district to region) for approval. The Proponent would also normally have authority to establish the total estimate of resource requirements for the proposed action or, in the execution phase, have the authority to direct the use of resources. While the Proponent is not normally expected to personally execute and document the environmental planning process, he or she has the lead role and is responsible for initiating the effort and retains responsibility (with support from the EPPM) for the content and quality of the process and documentation. Record of Environmental Consideration (REC): A REC is an internal DHS administrative document for recording the results of a review of a specific proposal that may be included in a category of actions described in a Categorical Exclusion. The purpose, use, and content of the REC are explained in Appendix A, Section 3.3.B.
