These include stainless steel strip in coils used in the production of textile cutting tools (e.g., carpet knives).5 This steel is similar to AISI grade 420 but containing, by weight, 0.5 to 0.7 percent of molybdenum. The steel also contains, by weight, carbon of between 1.0 and 1.1 percent, sulfur of 0.020 percent or less, and includes between 0.20 and 0.30 percent copper and between 0.20 and 0.50 percent cobalt. This steel is sold under proprietary names such as ‘‘GIN4 Mo.’’ The second excluded stainless steel strip in coils is similar to AISI 420–J2 and contains, by weight, carbon of between 0.62 and 0.70 percent, silicon of between 0.20 and 0.50 percent, manganese of between 0.45 and 0.80 percent, phosphorus of no more than 0.025 percent and sulfur of no more than 0.020 percent. This steel has a carbide density on average of 100 carbide particles per 100 square microns. An example of this product is ‘‘GIN5’’ steel. The third specialty steel has a chemical composition similar to AISI 420 F, with carbon of between 0.37 and 0.43 percent, molybdenum of between 1.15 and 1.35 percent, but lower manganese of between 0.20 and 0.80 percent, phosphorus of no more than 0.025 percent, silicon of between 0.20 and 0.50 percent, and sulfur of no more than 0.020 percent. This product is supplied with a hardness of more than Hv 500 guaranteed after customer processing, and is supplied as, for example, ‘‘GIN6’’. ycherry on PROD1PC64 with NOTICES Final Results of Review As noted above, the Department received no comments concerning the Preliminary Results. Therefore, consistent with the Preliminary Results, we continue to find that Hyundai is the successor–in-interest to INI and the current cash deposit rate applicable to INI shall be applicable to entries of subject merchandise made by Hyundai, entered on or after the publication date of the final results of this changed circumstances review. As there have been no changes to or comments on the Preliminary Results, a decision memorandum was not required and, therefore, none is attached to this Federal Register notice.

SUMMARY: On August 17, 2004, the Minority Business Development Agency 
(MBDA) published a Federal Register notice soliciting competitive 
applications for operators of the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale, Oklahoma City 
and Honolulu Minority Business Enterprise Centers (MBECs) (formerly 
Minority Business Development Centers). No other MBECs were included as 
part of this competitive solicitation. The August 17, 2004 notice 
provides for a two-year award period, with an optional third-year award 
period available at the sole discretion of MBDA and the Department of 
Commerce. The notice also provides that only those MBECs achieving 
``outstanding'' performance ratings for each of the two prior program 
years are eligible to receive funding for the optional third-year of 
the award.
    This notice amends the August 17, 2004 notice to change the minimum 
required performance rating for the optional third-year award period 
from ``outstanding'' to ``at least commendable'' for the first program 
year. The ``outstanding'' performance requirement for the second 
program year continues to apply. MBDA is making this amendment to allow 
the operators of these three MBECs to be eligible for a third and final 
year of continuation funding if they achieve at least a ``commendable'' 
performance rating for first program year and an ``outstanding'' 
performance rating for the second program year.

DATES: The optional third-year award period, if approved by the 
Department of Commerce Grants Officer, will be effective as of January 
1, 2007 and will continue through December 31, 2007.

provides that only those MBECs achieving ``outstanding'' performance
