This also places the responsibility of maintaining the publication with one Publications Team. The current procurement procedures were developed during a period of extensive economic regulation of the various transportation modes. The purpose behind the consolidation, revision, and change to these various modal procurement documents was to ensure the procurement procedures reflect the current transportation needs of the DOD as well as the state of the commercial transportation industry. It also streamlines documentation and procedures, as well as standardizes procurement terms as much as possible between the various transportation modes.

ACTION: Notice of intent. SUMMARY: The Wilmington District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) is conducting a study to evaluate the longterm (20-year) dredged material placement needs and opportunities for Morehead City Harbor, NC. The study area encompasses Morehead City Harbor and the Ocean Bar approach channels extending seaward to deep water through Beaufort Inlet in Carteret County, near Morehead City, NC. The study will include the preparation of an integrated (combined) Dredged Material Management Plan (DMMP) and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) and will identify, evaluate, screen, prioritize, and ultimately optimize placement alternatives resulting in the recommendation of a plan for the placement of dredged materials for at least the next 20 years. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Questions regarding the DMMP and DEIS should be directed to: Mr. Stacy Samuelson; Environmental Resources Section; U.S. Army Engineer District, Wilmington; 69 Darlington Avenue; Wilmington, NC 28402–1890; telephone: (910) 251–4480. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The USACE, Engineering Regulation (ER) 1105–2–100 mandates that the Corps Districts develop DMMPs for all Federal navigation projects where there is an indication of insufficient capacity to accommodate maintenance dredging for the next 20 years. The ER further requires that the Districts consider options that provide opportunities for beneficial uses of dredged material. Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, as amended, options for dredged material management will be based on an evaluation of the probable impact of the proposed activity on the public interest. The decision will reflect the national concern for the protection and utilization of important resources. The benefit, which may reasonably be expected to accrue from the proposal, will be balanced against its reasonably foreseeable detriments. All factors that may be relevant to the proposal will be E:\FR\FM\27MRN1.SGM 27MRN1
