Download as PDF 31680 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 107 / Tuesday, June 3, 2008 / Notices Cotton reaffirmed that the Direct Labor Cost Base is the most appropriate indirect allocation method for the development of the FY 2006 indirect cost rates. The DARRP’s Indirect Cost Rates and Policies The DARRP will apply the indirect cost rates for FY 2006 as recommended by Cotton for each of the DARRP component organizations as provided in the following table: FY 2006 Indirect Rate (%) DARP Component Organization Office of Response and Restoration (ORR) ............................................................................................................................................ Restoration Center (RC) .......................................................................................................................................................................... General Counsel for Natural Resources (GCNR) ................................................................................................................................... These rates are based on the Direct Labor Cost Base allocation methodology. The FY 2006 rates will be applied to all damage assessment and restoration case costs incurred between October 1, 2005 and September 30, 2006. DARRP will use the FY 2006 indirect cost rates for future fiscal years until subsequent year-specific rates can be developed. For cases that have settled and for cost claims paid prior to the effective date of the fiscal year in question, the DARRP will not re-open any resolved matters for the purpose of applying the revised rates in this policy for these fiscal years. For cases not settled and cost claims not paid prior to the effective date of the fiscal year in question, costs will be recalculated using the revised rates in this policy for these fiscal years. Where a responsible party has agreed to pay costs using previous year’s indirect rates, but has not yet made the payment because the settlement documents are not finalized, the costs will not be recalculated. 130.99 128.04 122.01 The DARRP indirect cost rate policies and procedures published in the Federal Register on December 7, 2000 (65 FR 76611), on December 2, 2002 (67 FR. 71537), October 6, 2003 (68 FR 57672), May 20, 2005 (70 Fed. Reg. 29280), March 16, 2006 (71 FR 13356), and February 9, 2007 (72 FR 6221) remain in effect except as updated by this notice. To summarize, the DARRP indirect rates for the last five fiscal years (beginning October 1 and ending September 30) are: DARRP Component Organization FY 02 (%) FY 03 (%) FY 04 (%) FY 05 (%) FY 06 (%) Damage Assessment Center .......................................................................................
