FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Amy Williams, (703) 602–0328. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Background Section 842(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2007 (Pub. L. 109–364) establishes a new specialty metals domestic source restriction, which is codified at 10 U.S.C. 2533b. A proposed rule is being developed to comprehensively implement 10 U.S.C. 2533b in the DFARS. However, this proposed rule is being published separately in order to expedite the exercise of a statutory exception to the requirements of 10 U.S.C. 2533b for COTS items. As defined in subsection (c) of 41 U.S.C. 431 (Section 35 of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy Act), ‘‘COTS item’’— (i) Means any item of supply that is— (A) A commercial item; (B) Sold in substantial quantities in the commercial marketplace; and (C) Offered to the Government, without modification, in the same form in which it is sold in the commercial marketplace; and (ii) Does not include bulk cargo, as defined in section 3 of the Shipping Act of 1984 (46 U.S.C. App. 1702), such as agricultural products and petroleum products. 41 U.S.C. 431(a) requires that the acquisition regulations list the provisions of law that are inapplicable to contracts and subcontracts for COTS items. Covered provisions of law must be included on that list unless the Administrator of the Office of Federal Procurement Policy (OFPP) makes a written determination that it would not be in the best interest of the United States to exempt such contracts from the applicability of that provision of law. Covered provisions of law are those that, as determined by OFPP, impose on contractors Government-unique policies, procedures, requirements, or restrictions, except for— Æ A provision of law that provides for criminal or civil penalties; or Æ A provision of law that specifically refers to 41 U.S.C. 431, and states that the law is nevertheless applicable to COTS items. 10 U.S.C. 2533b does not provide for criminal or civil penalties; nor does it refer to 41 U.S.C. 431 and state that the law is nevertheless applicable to COTS items. Accordingly, this proposed rule— Æ Creates a new DFARS section 212.570 to list 10 U.S.C. 2533b as PO 00000 Frm 00014 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 inapplicable to contracts and subcontracts for the acquisition of COTS items; and Æ Includes acquisitions of COTS items containing specialty metals as an exception at DFARS 225.7002–2. Exercise of this statutory COTS waiver is critical to DoD’s access to the commercial marketplace. Manufacturers make component purchasing decisions based on factors such as cost, quality, availability, and maintaining the state of the art—not the country in which specialty metals in the components were melted. In addition, many commercial items commonly acquired in large quantities by DoD, such as computers, commercial-off-the shelf engines, and semi-conductors, may contain a small percentage of components made of specialty metals, subjecting the manufacturers to costly and burdensome, if not impossible, tracking requirements. Many manufacturers of COTS items are unwilling to change their existing processes, inventory systems, or facilities and incur the significant expense associated with tracking the sourcing of specialty metals in the components of a COTS item in order to generate sales to DoD, which typically represent a very small percentage of overall revenue for COTS items. Section 2533b permits DoD to process a domestic non-availability determination, but such process poses difficulties for DoD in meeting missionsensitive requirements in a timely manner. In order for DoD to be able to support a determination, a contractor must— (1) Work with its suppliers at every tier to identify non-compliant parts from among potentially hundreds of thousands of parts; (2) Determine that it cannot find a compliant source, either because lead times are longer than the contract permits, or because sufficient quantity is not available; and (3) Research whether and by when it can become compliant. Once the information on noncompliant parts and their nonavailability is provided to DoD, the Department must conduct a validation review and develop a report to document the determination. All of these efforts taken together may entail thousands of hours of work, at considerable cost to the taxpayer, and a significant addition in lead time to the acquisition cycle. For all of these reasons, an exemption from 10 U.S.C. 2533b for COTS items is in the best interest of the Government. This rule was not subject to Office of Management and Budget review under E:\FR\FM\02JYP1.SGM 02JYP1

Proposed Flood Elevation Determinations

AGENCY: Federal Emergency Management Agency, DHS.

ACTION: Proposed rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Technical information or comments are requested on the 
proposed Base (1% annual chance) Flood Elevations (BFEs) and proposed 
BFEs modifications for the communities listed below. The BFEs are the 
basis for the floodplain management measures that the community is 
required either to adopt or to show evidence of being already in effect 
in order to qualify or remain qualified for participation in the 
National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).

DATES: The comment period is ninety (90) days following the second 
publication of this proposed rule in a newspaper of local circulation 
in each community.

[[Page 35957]]


ADDRESSES: The proposed BFEs for each community are available for 
inspection at the office of the Chief Executive Officer of each 
community. The respective addresses are listed in the table below.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: William R. Blanton, Jr., Engineering 
Management Section, Mitigation Directorate, Federal Emergency 
Management Agency, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, (202) 646-
3151.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Federal Emergency Management Agency 
(FEMA) proposes to make determinations of BFEs and modified BFEs for 
each community listed below, in accordance with section 110 of the 
Flood Disaster Protection Act of 1973, 42 U.S.C. 4104, and 44 CFR 
67.4(a).
    These proposed BFEs and modified BFEs, together with the floodplain 
management criteria required by 44 CFR 60.3, are the minimum that are 
required. They should not be construed to mean that the community must 
change any existing ordinances that are more stringent in their 
floodplain management requirements. The community may at any time enact 
stricter requirements of its own, or pursuant to policies established 
by other Federal, State or regional entities. These proposed elevations 
are used to meet the floodplain management requirements of the NFIP and 
are also used to calculate the appropriate flood insurance premium 
rates for new buildings built after these elevations are made final, 
and for the contents in these buildings.
    National Environmental Policy Act. This proposed rule is 
categorically excluded from the requirements of 44 CFR part 10, 
Environmental Consideration. An environmental impact assessment has not 
been prepared.
    Regulatory Flexibility Act. As flood elevation determinations are 
not within the scope of the Regulatory Flexibility Act, 5 U.S.C. 601-
612, a regulatory flexibility analysis is not required.
    Regulatory Classification. This proposed rule is not a significant 
regulatory action under the criteria of section 3(f) of Executive Order 
12866 of September 30, 1993, Regulatory Planning and Review, 58 FR 
51735.
    Executive Order 13132, Federalism. This proposed rule involves no 
policies that have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132.
    Executive Order 12988, Civil Justice Reform. This proposed rule 
meets the applicable standards of Executive Order 12988.
