The determination was issued on September 6, 2007. The Notice of determination was published in the Federal Register on September 21, 2007 (72 FR 54076). The worker-filed TAA/ATAA petition was denied because the subject firm does not produce an article within the meaning of section 222(a)(2) of the Act. The determination stated that, because the workers did not produce an article, and did not support a firm or appropriate subdivision that produced an article domestically, the workers cannot be considered import impacted or affected by a shift of production abroad. Workers are engaged in support of internal business applications for the subject firm’s clients. Pursuant to 29 CFR 90.18(c), administrative reconsideration may be granted if: (1) It appears on the basis of facts not previously considered that the determination complained of was erroneous; (2) it appears that the determination complained of was based on a mistake in the determination of facts not previously considered; or (3) in the opinion of the Certifying Officer, a misinterpretation of facts or of the law justified reconsideration of the decision. The request for reconsideration alleges that (1) the subject firm shifted production of an article (‘‘application management service’’) overseas and (2) consulting firms, such as the subject firm, are covered by the Trade Act because it ‘‘does not differentiate between types of businesses that it covers.’’ It is the Department’s policy that the subject firm must produce an article domestically.
