Alaska Native Claims Selection, 30148 [E8-11586]

Download as PDF 30148 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 101 / Friday, May 23, 2008 / Notices formally responded to a TA review letter or when a petitioner requests to be placed on the ‘‘Ready’’ list or states in writing in a document certified by the petitioner’s governing body that the petition is complete or that the Assistant Secretary should proceed with the active consideration of the petition. VII. Decision Against Acknowledgment Based on Failure To Meet Fewer Than Seven Criteria If during the evaluation of a petition on active consideration it becomes apparent that the petitioner fails on one criterion, or more, under the reasonable likelihood of the validity of the facts standard, OFA may prepare a proposed finding or final determination not to acknowledge the group on the failed criterion or criteria alone, setting forth the evidence, reasoning, and analyses that form the basis for the proposed decision. This process should be used to increase the speed of the decisionmaking process and better utilize the time and expertise of OFA professional staff. Thus, this process is most appropriate when the deficiency becomes apparent during the initial stages of active consideration. If a proposed finding against acknowledgment is issued on fewer than seven criteria and if, following an evaluation of the evidence and argument submitted during the comment period, it is determined that the petitioner meets the criterion or criteria, then the Assistant Secretary will issue an amended proposed finding evaluating all seven criteria. dwashington3 on PRODPC61 with NOTICES VIII. Integrity If OFA suspects that a petitioner may be involved in illegal activities or has submitted fraudulent documents for the Federal acknowledgment process, OFA should continue to refer any such matters to the Office of the Solicitor and Inspector General to seek appropriate action (such as investigation, prosecution, or other action). IX. ‘‘Inactive’’ Status In order to more accurately gauge its workload, OFA should modify its ‘‘Status Summary’’ publication to include only those petitioners that have submitted a documented petition and responded to a TA review letter. The ‘‘register of letters of intent or incomplete petitions’’ maintained under § 83.10(d) should be maintained separately and include a category of ‘‘Inactive Petitioners.’’ This inactive category should include those petitioners that have not responded in two years to a TA review, have missed suggested deadlines for responding to VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:34 May 22, 2008 Jkt 214001 the TA review, or have missed deadlines in its approved research plan of action. It should also include those petitioners that have submitted only a letter of intent, or are not otherwise ready for the initial TA review. Dated: May 16, 2008. Carl J. Artman, Assistant Secretary—Indian Affairs. [FR Doc.
