Sunshine Act Notice, 32022-32023 [E8-12507]

Download as PDF 32022 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 109 / Thursday, June 5, 2008 / Notices yshivers on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES because so many individuals who are eligible to serve as peer reviewers have conflicts of interest. The Standing Panel requirements under IDEA also have placed additional constraints on the availability of reviewers. Therefore, the Department has determined that, for some discretionary grant competitions, applications may be separated into two or more groups and ranked and selected for funding within the specific groups. This procedure will make it easier for the Department to find peer reviewers by ensuring that greater numbers of individuals who are eligible to serve as reviewers for any particular group of applicants will not have conflicts of interest. It also will increase the quality, independence, and fairness of the review process while permitting panel members to review applications under discretionary grant competitions for which they also have submitted applications. However, if the Department decides to select an equal number of applications in each group for funding, this may result in different cut-off points for fundable applications in each group. VI. Award Administration Information 1. Award Notices: If your application is successful, we notify your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators and send you a Grant Award Notice (GAN). We may notify you informally, also. If your application is not evaluated or not selected for funding, we notify you. 2. Administrative and National Policy Requirements: We identify administrative and national policy requirements in the application package and reference these and other requirements in the Applicable Regulations section in this notice. We reference the regulations outlining the terms and conditions of an award in the Applicable Regulations section in this notice and include these and other specific conditions in the GAN. The GAN also incorporates your approved application as part of your binding commitments under the grant. 3. Reporting: At the end of your project period, you must submit a final performance report, including financial information, as directed by the Secretary. If you receive a multi-year award, you must submit an annual performance report that provides the most current performance and financial expenditure information as directed by the Secretary under 34 CFR 75.118.

Performance Measures: Under the Government Performance and Results Act of 1993 (GPRA), the Department has established a set of performance measures, including long-term measures, that are designed to yield information on various aspects of the effectiveness and quality of the Technical Assistance and Dissemination To Improve Services and Results for Children With Disabilities program. These measures focus on the extent to which projects provide high quality products and services, the relevance of project products and services to educational and early intervention policy and practice, and the use of products and services to improve educational and early intervention policy and practice. Grantees will be required to provide information related to these measures in annual reports to the Department.

The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: Section 1453(a)(3) of the Safe Drinking Water Act (SDWA) required States to submit a Source Water Assessment Program within 18 months after the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) published its State Source Water Assessment and Protection Programs Guidance: Final Guidance. Upon EPA approval of their programs, States conducted source water assessments of their public water systems. State assessments were required to be completed three and a half years after approval of a state’s program; the assessment program is therefore complete relative to the SDWA requirements. The burden and cost associated with all of the assessment was accounted for in three previous information collection requests (EPA ICR Nos. 1816.01, 1816.02, and 1816.03). The 2006–2011 EPA Strategic Plan incorporates a source water contamination prevention measure to describe the voluntary source water protection (SWP) actions taken at the local or regional level based on the results of completed source water assessments. EPA’s strategic target for SWP sets a goal of minimized risk to public health in 50 percent of community water systems (CWSs) and the 62 percent of the U.S. population served by those CWSs by 2011. Achieving minimized risk to public health focuses on developing and substantially implementing SWP strategies to address potential contamination risks within each CWS source water area. EPA is collecting, on a voluntary basis, data from the States on their progress toward substantial implementation of prevention strategies for all CWS SWAs. While Section 1453(a)(3) of the SDWA does not authorize source water protection, States are encouraged to use the data collected in the source water assessments to develop protection plans for source water areas. Drinking Water State Revolving Fund monies authorized in Section 1452(g)(2)(B) may be used for activities to support efforts in source water protection. The E:\FR\FM\05JNN1.SGM 05JNN1
