Download as PDF wwhite on PROD1PC61 with NOTICES 24654 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 80 / Wednesday, April 26, 2006 / Notices In June of each year, the Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) undertakes a Ship Disposition Review (SDR) to determine which vessels shall be decommissioned from active service; the total each year has been averaging eight vessels. This list will be published by Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEASYSCOM) in the Federal Register two months after the Review, and will include the determination reached in coordination with the NHC as to which, if any, of the vessels are eligible for listing in the NRHP. During the public notice period, which shall extend sixty days from the time of publication, any member of the public may provide comments and justification to support or contradict the Navy’s determinations regarding each named vessel. NAVSEASYSCOM, coordinating with the NHC, shall consider all recommendations and supporting justification received from the public in accordance with the criteria defined above before action is taken to dispose of the vessel. The NHC shall provide final determination of eligibility of Navy vessels in accordance with the foregoing criteria. The inactive vessels inventory will be reviewed in preparation for the annual CNO, SDR conference. Vessels previously reviewed for eligibility do not require rereview unless a triggering event occurred related to the eligibility criteria. The Navy’s military mission requires that eligible vessels not stricken from the NVR continue to be fully available for naval service appropriate to each vessel’s mission, including both routine and combat operations, and that they also continue to be available for modernization as necessary to keep them battle-worthy, safe, and habitable. Specifically, the Navy will employ, deploy, activate, inactivate, decommission, modify, and move such vessels without regard to their eligibility and without consultation under NHPA. The Navy’s responsibilities with regard to eligible vessels are limited to the provisions of this section. The Navy will take the following steps, (if security classification permits), regarding vessels determined to be eligible for listing in the NRHP: a. Upon decommissioning or upon designation as eligible: (1) Annotate the vessel’s NVR entry to reflect eligibility. (2) Unless the vessel is designated Foreign Military Sales (FMS) transfer, there are other Navy requirements for its continued use, or national security or other restrictions preclude donation, make the vessel available for donation under 10 U.S.C. 7306. The Navy’s Ship VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:58 Apr 25, 2006 Jkt 208001 Donation Program (so-named, because service craft are only rarely eligible or requested for donation) is described at http://www.navsea.navy.mil/ndp. Donation applications requirements include submission of acceptable curatorial/museum and maintenance plans among other plans for the preservation of the vessel in a condition satisfactory to the Secretary of the Navy. If a qualified donee is not identified within two years, the Navy may proceed with other disposal options. (3) Vessels designated by the Office of the CNO for Foreign Military Sales transfer will not be made available for donation under 10 U.S.C. 7306 as Department of Defense and Department of State Security Assistance programs have a higher national priority. Such FMS transfers may occur immediately upon decommissioning from the Navy (hot-ship transfer) or may occur several years after decommissioning (cold-ship transfer). However, if NRHP eligible vessels are removed from FMS hold and designated for disposal, they will be made available for donation under 10 U.S.C. 7306 according to the preceding provision. b. After NRHP eligible ships have been re-designated from donation hold status to disposal, and with the exception of classified information: (1) The NHC, Ships History Branch will give priority to compiling histories of NRHP eligible vessels when preparing entries in the Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships. (2) The NHC, Ships History Branch will permanently retain and provide public access to appropriate documentation from NRHP eligible vessels such as command history reports and war diaries. (3) The NHC, Ships History Branch, will provide public access to ship deck logs under its possession. Deck logs that are more than 30 years old are transferred to the National Archives and Records Administration for permanent retention. (4) Navy policy requires the removal of curator artifacts from all vessels being decommissioned; including citations, correspondence of significant historical value, ship histories, paintings, and photographs selected to best display the physical characteristics of the vessel (ship’s silver services are retained by the Naval Supply System). The NHC, Curator Branch, will maintain these items and will consider the loan of previously removed curator artifacts or other items of potential historical importance to qualified U.S. nonprofit organizations. (5) Within three years of designation for disposal of an NRHP eligible vessel, PO 00000 Frm 00018 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 the Navy Inactive Ships Program Office (NISPO) will deposit with the National Archives a documentation package consisting of archivally stable media of the following items: Unclassified Booklet of General Plans and the last unclassified report of the Board of Inspection and Survey describing the material condition of the vessel. The NISPO will submit an annual report to the Advisory ACHP on the progress of the program. The report will include the following information: a. Names and status of vessels identified as eligible for NRHP listing. b. Names of eligible vessels disposed of during the reporting period along with the status of documentation packages of eligible vessels that have been disposed of. By following this document, the Navy meets its responsibilities for compliance under Section 106 concerning management of its entire inventory of inactive vessels. Accordingly, the Navy is no longer required to follow the caseby-case Section 106 review process for each individual management action affecting inactive vessels, nor to conduct consultations with the ACHP, State Historic Preservation Officer, and other preservation authorities, except as provided in this program. The Navy may carry out management actions prior to the completion of the provisions outlined above, so long as such management actions do not preclude the eventual successful completion of these provisions. Dated: April 20, 2006. Eric Mcdonald, Lieutenant Commander, Judge Advocate General’s Corps, U.S. Navy, Federal Register Liaison Officer. [FR Doc.
