Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 248 / Friday, December 28, 2007 / Notices mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES • The introduction of two new indicators and a new methodology in the ‘‘iInvesting in people’’ category, • Slight declines in performance, and • Score changes within the margin of error. Therefore, all of the 12 countries can continue with compact implementation or compact development, providing they demonstrate progress toward meeting the criteria. These MCC countries will be required to develop and implement a remediation plan to address policy performance and/or data issues which prevent countries from meeting the eligibility criteria. The remediation process will give MCC and other U.S. Government agencies a basis for policy dialogue with the country about how to improve performance while allowing the country to demonstrate commitment to and progress toward meeting the eligibility criteria. The Board also did not reselect Sri Lanka and the Gambia. Sri Lanka was not reselected this year due to the ongoing conflict in the country, which has escalated to a level that precludes MCC activities and which is inconsistent with the performance of an MCC-eligible country. The Gambia’s eligibility was suspended in previous years and it was not considered this year for eligibility. Finally, a number of countries that performed well on the quantitative elements of the selection criteria (i.e., on the policy indicators) were not chosen as eligible countries for FY08. As discussed above, the Board considered a variety of factors in addition to the country’s performance on the policy indicators in determining whether they were appropriate candidates for assistance (e.g., the country’s commitment to fighting corruption and promoting democratic governance; the availability of appropriated funds; and the countries in which MCC would likely have the best opportunity to reduce poverty and generate economic growth). Selection for Compact Negotiation The Board also authorized MCC to invite Malawi to submit a proposal for a compact, as described in section 609 of the Act. MCC will initiate the process by inviting Malawi to submit a program proposal to MCC for due diligence review (previously eligible countries will not be asked to submit another proposal for FY08 assistance). MCC has posted guidance on the MCC Web site (www.mcc.gov) regarding the development and submission of MCA program proposals. Submission of a proposal is not a guarantee that MCC VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:27 Dec 27, 2007 Jkt 214001 will finalize a compact with an eligible country. Any MCA assistance provided under section 605 of the Act will be contingent on the successful negotiation of a mutually agreeable compact between the eligible country and MCC, approval of the compact by the Board, and availability of funds. Dated: December 21, 2007. William G. Anderson, Jr., Vice President and General Counsel, Millennium Challenge Corporation. Henry Pitney, Alternate Certifying Officer. [FR Doc.
