Notice; republication. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Department of Veterans (VA) is republishing this notice due to an administrative error in the published version. This notice replaces the notice that was published February 15, 2007 at 72 FR 7513. Public Law 104–275 was enacted on October 9, 1996. It allows the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to provide a monetary allowance towards the private purchase of an outer burial receptacle for use in a VA national cemetery. Under VA regulation (38 CFR 38.629), the allowance is equal to the average cost of Government-furnished graveliners less any administrative costs to VA. The law provides a veteran’s survivors with the option of selecting a Government-furnished graveliner for use in a VA national cemetery where such use is authorized. The purpose of this Notice is to notify interested parties of the average cost of Government-furnished graveliners, administrative costs that relate to processing and paying the allowance, and the amount of the allowance payable for qualifying interments that occur during calendar year 2007.

Telephone: 202–273–5162 (this is not a toll-free number). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Under 38 U.S.C. 2306(e)(3) and (4) and Public Law 104–275, Section 213, VA may provide a monetary allowance for the private purchase of an outer burial receptacle for use in a VA national cemetery where its use is authorized. The allowance for qualified interments that occur during calendar year 2007 is the average cost of Governmentfurnished graveliners in fiscal year 2006, less the administrative costs incurred by VA in processing and paying the allowance in lieu of the Government-furnished graveliner. The average cost of Governmentfurnished graveliners is determined by taking VA’s total cost during a fiscal year for single-depth graveliners that were procured for placement at the time of interment and dividing it by the total number of such graveliners procured by VA during that fiscal year. The calculation excludes both graveliners procured and pre-placed in gravesites as part of cemetery gravesite development projects and all double-depth graveliners. Using this method of computation, the average cost was determined to be $197.67 for fiscal year 2006. The administrative costs incurred by VA consist of those costs that relate to processing and paying an allowance in lieu of the Government-furnished graveliner. These costs have been determined to be $9.00 for calendar year 2007. The allowance payable for qualifying interments occurring during calendar year 2007, therefore, is $188.67. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Approved: February 9, 2007. Gordon H. Mansfield, Deputy Secretary of Veterans Affairs. [FR Doc.
