Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments, 44875-44877 [E7-15610]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 153 / Thursday, August 9, 2007 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES collection. The comments that are submitted will be summarized and included in the NARA request for Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. In this notice, NARA is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection: Title: Presidential Libraries Museum Visitor Survey. OMB number: 3095–00XX. Agency form number: N/A. Type of review: Regular. Affected public: Individuals who visit the museums at the Presidential libraries. Estimated number of respondents: 75,000. Estimated time per response: 15 minutes. Frequency of response: On occasion (when an individual visits a Presidential Library or Museum.) Estimated total annual burden hours: 18,750 hours. Abstract: The survey will be comprised of a set of questions designed to allow for a statistical analysis that will ultimately provide actionable information to NARA. The survey includes questions that measure the visitor’s satisfaction in general and with specific aspects of their visit. These questions serve as dependent variables for analytical purposes. Other questions provide attitudinal, behavioral, and demographic data that are used to help understand variation in the satisfaction variables. Using statistical analyses, Harris Interactive will determine the factors that drive the visitor’s perceptions of quality and satisfaction with the Library they visited. Additionally, natural groupings of visitors defined by similarity based on these attitudinal, behavioral, and demographic variables can be developed and targeted for outreach purposes. The information collected through this effort will inform program activity, operation, and oversight, and will benefit Library and NARA staff and management in making critical decisions about resource allocation, museum operation and program direction. Dated: August 2, 2007. Martha Morphy, Assistant Archivist for Information Services. [FR Doc.

ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request for comments. AGENCY: SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government business. They authorize the preservation of records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and the destruction, after a specified period, of records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. Notice is published for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). DATES: Requests for copies must be received in writing on or before September 10, 2007 (Note that the new time period for requesting copies has changed from 45 to 30 days after publication). Once the appraisal of the records is completed, NARA will send a copy of the schedule. NARA staff usually prepare appraisal memorandums that contain additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed schedule. These, too, may be requested and will be provided once the appraisal is completed. Requesters will be given 30 days to submit comments. ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in this notice by contacting the Life Cycle Management Division (NWML) using one of the following means: Mail: NARA (NWML), 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740–6001. E-mail: requestschedule@nara.gov. FAX: 301–837–3698. Requesters must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses after the name of the agency which submitted the schedule, and must provide a mailing address. Those who desire appraisal reports should so indicate in their request. PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44875 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laurence Brewer, Director, Life Cycle Management Division (NWML), National Archives and Records Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740–6001. Telephone: 301–837–1539. E-mail: records.mgt@nara.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year Federal agencies create billions of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval, using the Standard Form (SF) 115, Request for Records Disposition Authority. These schedules provide for the timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records and authorize the disposal of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. No Federal records are authorized for destruction without the approval of the Archivist of the United States. This approval is granted only after a thorough consideration of their administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private persons directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not they have historical or other value. Besides identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this public notice lists the organizational unit(s) accumulating the records or indicates agency-wide applicability in the case of schedules that cover records that may be accumulated throughout an agency. This notice provides the control number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for destruction). It also includes a brief description of the temporary records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the records at the file unit level as well as their disposition. If NARA staff has prepared an appraisal memorandum for the schedule, it too includes information about the records. Further information about the disposition process is available on request.

Before Administrative Judges: Michael C. Farrar, Chairman, Nicholas G. Trikouros, Lawrence G. McDade. This proceeding involves the September 2006 application of Shaw AREVA MOX Services (MOX Services, or Applicant) for a license to possess and use byproduct, source, and special nuclear materials at the Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication Facility (MFFF) at the Department of Energy’s Savannah River Site, which lies south of Aiken, South Carolina, and extends to the Georgia border. This Atomic Safety and Licensing Board hereby gives NOTICE that it will, on Wednesday, August 22, 2007, in Augusta, Georgia, be hearing oral argument from the formal participants in the proceeding regarding the petition to intervene that has been submitted by three organizations. Information about that oral argument appears in Section A below. In addition, the Board gives notice that, in accordance with 10 CFR 2.315(a), it will entertain oral ‘‘limited appearance’’ statements from members of the public in North Augusta, South Carolina, on the evening of Tuesday, August 21, 2007. Information about these statements appears in Section B below. This matter began on March 15, 2007, when the Commission published a notice of acceptance for docketing of the MOX Services license application and a notice of opportunity to request a hearing on the application. 72 FR 12,204 (Mar. 15, 2007). Thereafter, a ‘‘Petition for Intervention and Request for VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:25 Aug 08, 2007 Jkt 211001 Hearing’’ (hereinafter Petition) was timely filed on May 14, 2007, by a group of three organizations (collectively, Petitioners): The Blue Ridge Environmental Defense League (BREDL), Nuclear Watch South (NWS),1 and the Nuclear Information Service (NIRS). On June 5, 2007, this Atomic Safety and Licensing Board was established to conduct this adjudication.2 As part of that process, this Board will now hear oral argument on the standing of the Petitioners to intervene in this proceeding and on the admissibility of the five contentions they submitted as part of the petition to intervene. A. Nature, Timing, and Location of Oral Argument The oral argument is currently scheduled to cover two categories of issues: Standing and contention admissibility. The Petitioners have claimed representational standing on behalf of their members who reside within 50 miles of the proposed facility, a claim that is disputed by the Applicant and by the NRC Staff. The Petitioners have also submitted five contentions, which they list in summary as follows: (1) Whether MOX Services’ License Application and/or EIS meet the relevant requirements in the National Environmental Policy Act and/or the Clean Air Act because of failures to address critical aspects regarding limits on emissions of hazardous air pollutants necessary for the protection of public health and safety; (2) Whether MOX Services License Application meets the relevant requirements of the Atomic Energy Act because of its failure to prepare and submit an emergency plan to the NRC for potential radioactive releases to the public; (3) Whether the Final Environmental Impact Statement on the construction and operation of a plutonium fuel factory is adequate to satisfy the requirements of NEPA and NRC implementing regulations because it fails to address new and significant information showing that neither MOX Services nor the U.S. Department of Energy (‘‘DOE’’) has any concrete plans for the Waste Solidification Building (‘‘WSB’’) that was proposed in the EIS and, as a result, highalpha liquid waste from the proposed facility may have to be stored onsite posing hazards which have not been addressed by the NRC in the EIS; (4) Whether the License Application for the proposed plutonium processing facility is inadequate because it does not address safety 1 Nuclear Watch South was previously known as Georgians Against Nuclear Energy (GANE) and participated in the prior proceeding related to this facility under that name. 2 72 FR 32,139 (June 11, 2007). The Board was subsequently reconstituted, pursuant to 10 CFR 2.313(c), due to the unavailability of one of the judges. 72 FR 40,344 (July 24, 2007). PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44877 and public health risks posed by indefinite storage of liquid high-alpha waste at the site or contain measures for the safe storage of that waste; and (5) Whether the Final Environmental Impact Statement for the proposed plutonium processing facility meets the relevant requirements of NEPA because it does not evaluate the environmental impacts of a terrorist attack on the proposed factory. Petition at 5–6. The Board will hear argument from counsel for the Applicant and for the NRC Staff and from pro se representatives of the Petitioners regarding the Petitioners’ standing claim and the admissibility of these contentions under 10 CFR 2.309(f)(1). The specific date, time, and location of the oral argument is as follows: Dates: Wednesday, August 22, 2007. Location: Courtroom # 2 (Second Floor), Augusta Federal Courthouse, 600 James Brown Blvd., Augusta, Georgia 30901. Time: 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m (EDT). Members of the public are welcome to attend the oral argument as spectators (this session is a formal adjudicatory proceeding open to public observation but not to public participation those who wish to participate in other aspects are invited to offer limited appearance statements as provided in Section B, below.) Conduct of members of the public at NRC adjudicatory proceedings is governed by 66 FR 31,719 (June 12, 2001), an excerpt from which follows this notice. In addition, normal federal courthouse security procedures will be followed. Attendees are strongly advised to arrive sufficiently early to allow time to pass through a security screening checkpoint. Further, in the interest of permitting prompt access to the hearing room, attendees are requested to refrain from bringing any unnecessary handcarried items. (Items such as packages, briefcases, and backpacks may need to be examined individually, and items that could readily be used as weapons will not be permitted in the hearing room.) There will be no facilities available for storing any items outside the hearing room, and attendees with items requiring inspection may be delayed in obtaining entry. B.

NATIONAL ARCHIVES AND RECORDS ADMINISTRATION


Records Schedules; Availability and Request for Comments

AGENCY: National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).

ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request 
for comments.

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

SUMMARY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) 
publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency 
requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once 
approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on 
what happens to records when no longer needed for current Government 
business. They authorize the preservation of records of continuing 
value in the National Archives of the United States and the 
destruction, after a specified period, of records lacking 
administrative, legal, research, or other value. Notice is published 
for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records not 
previously authorized for disposal or reduce the retention period of 
records already authorized for disposal. NARA invites public comments 
on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a).

DATES: Requests for copies must be received in writing on or before 
September 10, 2007 (Note that the new time period for requesting copies 
has changed from 45 to 30 days after publication). Once the appraisal 
of the records is completed, NARA will send a copy of the schedule. 
NARA staff usually prepare appraisal memorandums that contain 
additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed 
schedule. These, too, may be requested and will be provided once the 
appraisal is completed. Requesters will be given 30 days to submit 
comments.

ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in 
this notice by contacting the Life Cycle Management Division (NWML) 
using one of the following means:
    Mail: NARA (NWML), 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001.
    E-mail: requestschedule@nara.gov.
    FAX: 301-837-3698.
    Requesters must cite the control number, which appears in 
parentheses after the name of the agency which submitted the schedule, 
and must provide a mailing address. Those who desire appraisal reports 
should so indicate in their request.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Laurence Brewer, Director, Life Cycle 
Management Division (NWML), National Archives and Records 
Administration, 8601 Adelphi Road, College Park, MD 20740-6001. 
Telephone: 301-837-1539. E-mail: records.mgt@nara.gov.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Each year Federal agencies create billions 
of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control 
this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing 
retention periods for records and submit these schedules for NARA's 
approval, using the Standard Form (SF) 115, Request for Records 
Disposition Authority. These schedules provide for the timely transfer 
into the National Archives of historically valuable records and 
authorize the disposal of all other records after the agency no longer 
needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive 
and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major 
subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office 
or program or a few series of records. Many of these update previously 
approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent.
    No Federal records are authorized for destruction without the 
approval of the Archivist of the United States. This approval is 
granted only after a thorough consideration of their administrative use 
by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private 
persons directly affected by the Government's activities, and whether 
or not they have historical or other value.
    Besides identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions 
requesting disposition authority, this public notice lists the 
organizational unit(s) accumulating the records or indicates agency-
wide applicability in the case of schedules that cover records that may 
be accumulated throughout an agency. This notice provides the control 
number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, 
and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for 
destruction). It also includes a brief description of the temporary 
records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the 
records at the file unit level as well as their disposition. If NARA 
staff has prepared an appraisal memorandum for the schedule, it too 
includes information about the records. Further information about the 
disposition process is available on request.
