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). The comment period is ninety (90) days following the second publication of this proposed rule in a DATES: E:\FR\FM\13JYP1.SGM 13JYP1 38544 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 134 / Friday, July 13, 2007 / Proposed Rules newspaper of local circulation in each community. 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 ADDRESSES: Flooding source(s) 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.

We will stamp the date on the postcard and mail it to you. Docket: For access to the docket to read background documents or comments received, go to http:// www.regulations.gov. II. Background and Purpose Currently, the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) provides for TwoPhase Design-Build Selection Procedures. These procedures are used PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4702 Sfmt 4702 when the Government determines it is appropriate to combine design and construction in a single contract with one contractor. See 48 CFR 36.3, ‘‘TwoPhase Design-Build Selection Procedures.’’ Since the FAR does not allow for consideration of cost or price related factors until the second phase, the Two-Phase procedures require proposal evaluation at two separate points. See 48 CFR 36.303–2(b)). The existing two-phase selection procedures, whether one solicitation for both phases or two solicitations issued sequentially, require evaluation of technical approach and technical qualifications in phase one and evaluation of technical factors (such as design concepts or proposed solutions and price) in phase two. These procedures result in substantial completion time for both interested firms and the Government. The proposed rule amends the HSAR to allow for one-step turnkey designbuild contracting for United States Coast Guard facilities. This one-step designbuild contracting method results in a single contractor for both design and construction services. The one-step turnkey selection procedures for designbuild consist of a single price and technical evaluation for a single, firm fixed-price contract with one contractor. This approach, which works well for less complex facilities’ construction projects requiring little design, provides for shortened procurement and execution stages when compared to the existing two-phase selection procedures. III. Discussion of Proposed Rule The proposed rule adds a new section and subpart to the HSAR at 48 CFR 3036.104–90. DHS is amending the HSAR to implement changes resulting from section 205 of Public Law 109–241 (regarding one-step turnkey selection procedures for design-build contracts of the United States Coast Guard) and to incorporate the delegation of turnkey design-build authority from the Secretary of Homeland Security to the United States Coast Guard. IV. Regulatory Analyses A. Executive Order 12866 Assessment This proposed rule is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under section 3(f) of Executive Order 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, and does not require an assessment of potential costs and benefits under section 6(a)(3) of that Order. The Office of Management and Budget has not reviewed it under that Order. The proposed rule reduces proposal submittal requirements for Design-Build contracts through a one-step turnkey E:\FR\FM\13JYP1.SGM 13JYP1

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

[[Page 38544]]

newspaper of local circulation in each community.

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.
