Telephone: (301) 492–3284; fax number: (301) 492–3348; e-mail: shana.helton@nrc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I Foster Wheeler Environmental Corporation (FWENC) is the holder of Special Nuclear Materials License No. 2512 (SNM–2512), issued by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC or Commission) pursuant to 10 CFR part 72. SNM–2512 authorizes FWENC to construct and operate the Idaho Spent Fuel (ISF) Facility in accordance with the terms and conditions specified therein. The yet-to-be constructed ISF Facility is an independent spent fuel storage installation (ISFSI) which, if constructed, will be located adjacent to the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) Idaho Nuclear Technology and Engineering Center site on the Idaho National Laboratory grounds in Idaho. mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES II By application dated May 30, 2008, as supplemented by letter dated June 8, 2009 (Agencywide Documents Access and Management System [ADAMS] Accession Nos. ML081630246 and ML091660593, respectively), DOE submitted a request, to NRC, for approval of a proposed direct transfer of SNM–2512, under section 184 of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (AEA), and 10 CFR 72.50. SNM–2512 was issued to FWENC to construct and operate the ISF Facility ISFSI. As of this date, no facility has been constructed, but FWENC continues to hold SNM–2512. The proposed license transfer would result in DOE holding SNM–2512. The application also requested a conforming license amendment to reflect the proposed transfer of SNM License No. 2512 to DOE. No physical changes to the ISF Facility ISFSI design or operational changes were proposed in the application. Approval of the application was requested pursuant to section 184 of the AEA, and 10 CFR 72.50. Notice of consideration of approval of the application and an opportunity for a hearing was published in the Federal Register on, February 25, 2009 (74 FR 8587). No hearing requests or written comments were received. The June 8, 2009, supplement, which was not identified in the Federal Register notice, provided a revision to Chapter 9 of the Safety Analysis Report. The revision delineates a full construction/ VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:36 Jul 27, 2009 Jkt 217001 operating organization, pending a decision by DOE to proceed with the deployment of the ISF Facility ISFSI. This revision to the organizational description has been determined to be administrative in nature and not to present any safety issue. The Commission’s approval of this direct transfer of SNM–2512, and any related, conforming license amendments to SNM–2512, are categorically excluded from further environmental review, pursuant to 10 CFR 51.22(c)(21). Under 10 CFR 72.50, no license nor any part included in a license issued under 10 CFR part 72 for an ISFSI shall be transferred, assigned, or in any manner disposed of, either voluntarily or involuntarily, directly or indirectly, through transfer of control of the license to any person, unless the Commission gives its consent in writing. Upon review of the information submitted in the application and other information before the Commission, the NRC staff has determined that the direct transfer of control of SNM–2512, as described above, is consistent with applicable provisions of the law, and the regulations and orders issued by the Commission. These findings are supported by a Safety Evaluation dated July 17, 2009 (ADAMS No. ML091940481). III Accordingly, pursuant to sections 161b, 161i, and 184 of the AEA, 42 USC 2201(b), 2201(i), and 2234, and 10 CFR 72.50, the Commission gives notice that it has issued an order (Order) approving DOE’s application dated May 30, 2008, as supplemented by letter dated June 8, 2009, for the direct transfer of SNM– 2512 from FWENC to DOE, and for conforming license amendments. The Order is effective upon issuance. For further details, see the application dated May 30, 2008, as supplemented by letter dated June 8, 2009; the safety evaluation report; and the Order (ADAMS Nos. ML081630246, ML091660593, ML091940481, and ML091940453, respectively).

Notice. AGENCY: mstockstill on DSKH9S0YB1PROD with NOTICES ACTION: SUMMARY: The Commission is noticing a recently-filed Postal Service request to add a Global Expedited Package Services 1 contract to the Competitive Product List. This notice addresses procedural steps associated with these filings. Comments are due July 31, 2009. Submit comments electronically via the Commission’s Filing Online system at http:// www.prc.gov. DATES: ADDRESSES: VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:36 Jul 27, 2009 Jkt 217001 FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Stephen L. Sharfman, General Counsel, 202–789–6820 and stephen.sharfman@prc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Introduction II. Notice of Filing III. Ordering Paragraphs I. Introduction On July 21, 2009, the Postal Service filed a notice announcing that it has entered into an additional Global Expedited Package Services 1 (GEPS 1) contract.1 GEPS 1 provides volumebased incentives for mailers that send large volumes of Express Mail International (EMI) and/or Priority Mail International (PMI). The Postal Service believes the instant contract is functionally equivalent to previously submitted GEPS 1 contracts, and is supported by the Governors’ Decision filed in Docket No. CP2008–4.2 Notice at 1. It further notes that in Order No. 86, which established GEPS 1 as a product, the Commission held that additional contracts may be included as part of the GEPS 1 product if they meet the requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633, and if they are functionally equivalent to the initial GEPS 1 contract filed in Docket No. CP2008–5.3 Notice at 1. The instant contract. The Postal Service filed the instant contract pursuant to 39 CFR 3015.5. In addition, the Postal Service contends that the contract is in accordance with Order No. 86. The Postal Service states that the instant contract replaces the contract for the customer in Docket No. CP2008–13, which will end on August 31, 2009. Id. at 2. It submitted the contract and supporting material under seal, and attached a redacted copy of the contract and certified statement required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2) to the Notice as Attachments 1 and 2, respectively. Id. at 1–2. The term of the instant contract is 1 year from the date the Postal Service notifies the customer that all necessary regulatory approvals have been received. The Notice advances reasons why the instant GEPS 1 contract fits within the Mail Classification Schedule language for GEPS 1. The Postal Service asserts 1 Notice of United States Postal Service Filing of Functionally Equivalent Global Expedited Package Services 1 Negotiated Service Agreement, July 16, 2009 (Notice). 2 See Docket No. CP2008–4, Notice of United States Postal Service of Governors’ Decision Establishing Prices and Classifications for Global Expedited Package Services Contents, May 20, 2008. 3 See Docket No. CP2008–5, Order Concerning Global Expedited Package Services Contracts, June 27, 2008, at 7 (Order No. 86). PO 00000 Frm 00068 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 that the instant contract is functionally equivalent to the GEPS 1 contracts filed previously. It states that in Governors’ Decision No. 08–7, a pricing formula and classification system were established to ensure that each contract meets the statutory and regulatory requirements of 39 U.S.C. 3633. The Postal Service contends that the instant contract demonstrates its functional equivalence with the previous GEPS 1 contracts because of several factors: The customers are small or medium-sized businesses that mail directly to foreign destinations using EMI and/or PMI, the contract term of 1 year applies to all GEPS 1 contracts, the contracts have similar cost and market characteristics, and each requires payment through permit imprint. Id. at 4. It asserts that even though prices may be different based on volume or postage commitments made by the customers, or updated costing information, these differences do not affect the contracts’ functional equivalency because the GEPS 1 contracts share similar cost attributes and methodology. Id. at 4–5. The Postal Service also identifies several other contractual differences including provisions that clarify the availability of other Postal Service products and services, exclude certain flat rate products from the mail qualifying for discounts, simplify mailing notice requirements, modify mail tender locations, clarify the mailer’s volume and revenue commitment in the event of early termination, and modify the original GEPS 1 agreement to reflect changes unrelated to the mailers or negotiations of either party’s obligations under the agreement. Id. at 5–6. The Postal Service states that these differences related to a particular mailer are ‘‘incidental differences’’ and do not change the conclusion that these agreements are functionally equivalent in all substantive aspects. Id. at 6. The Postal Service requests that this contract be included within the GEPS 1 product. Id. at 7. The Postal Service maintains that certain portions of the contract and certified statement required by 39 CFR 3015.5(c)(2), names of GEPS 1 customers, related financial information, portions of the certified statement which contain costs and pricing as well as the accompanying analyses that provide prices, terms, conditions, and financial projections should remain under seal. Id. at 3. II. Notice of Filing The Commission establishes Docket No. CP2009–52 for consideration of E:\FR\FM\28JYN1.SGM 28JYN1
