To develop the revised fee schedule requests for FIS technical and administrative support data, FEMA evaluated the actual costs of reviewing, reproducing, and distributing archived data in seven categories. These categories are discussed in more detail below. To develop the revised fee schedule for requests for particular NFIP map and insurance products, FEMA: (1) Evaluated the actual costs incurred at the Map Service Center (MSC) for producing, retrieving, and distributing those products; (2) analyzed historical sales, cost data, and product unit cost for unusual trends or anomalies; and, (3) analyzed the effect of program changes, new products, technology investments, and other factors on future sales and product costs. The products covered by this notice are discussed in detail below. Periodic Evaluations of Fees.
