SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Abstract The U.S. Government (USG) Trade Event Information Request (Form ITA– 4136P) is sent to any firm that requests senior-level USG witnessing of a E:\FR\FM\05MYN1.SGM 05MYN1 24570 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 86 / Wednesday, May 5, 2010 / Notices commercial milestone, e.g., an announcement, contract, or business agreement signing, at a public event designed to highlight a company’s commercial success in an overseas project or procurement competition. The Advocacy Center, appropriate ITA officials, U.S. Embassies/Consulates worldwide, and other federal government agencies that provide advocacy support to U.S. firms, will request firm(s) seeking USG advocacy support to complete the Trade Event Information Request form. This information is needed to ensure that the subject milestone to be witnessed is either a legally-binding contract or a commercially-significant announcement, which includes highlighted U.S. export content.

The information collected permits staff to review details of the milestone to be witnessed, and to make an evaluation on: (a) Whether the contract or announcement is actually ready for final signature or public disclosure; (b) whether additional USG advocacy may be required prior to the event in question; (c) whether the level of U.S. company participation and foreign government official participation, if appropriate, is at a level high enough to recommend senior-level USG participation; and (d) where U.S. export content associated with the contract/ announcement would be sourced. If this information were not collected, staff could not make the appropriate evaluation prior to USG senior-level involvement. sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES II.

[FR Doc. 2010–10534 Filed 5–4–10; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3510–FP–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Foreign-Trade Zones Board [Docket 27–2010] Foreign-Trade Zone 177—Mount Vernon/Evansville, IN; Application for Reorganization Under Alternative Site Framework An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board (the Board) by the Ports of Indiana, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 177, requesting authority to reorganize the zone under the alternative site framework (ASF) adopted by the Board (74 FR 1170, 1/12/09; correction 74 FR 3987, 1/22/09). The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of general-purpose zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new ‘‘usage-driven’’ FTZ sites for operators/ users located within a grantee’s ‘‘service area’’ in the context of the Board’s standard 2,000-acre activation limit for a general-purpose zone project. The application was submitted pursuant to the Foreign-Trade Zones Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 81a–81u) and the regulations of the Board (15 CFR part 400). It was formally filed on April 22, 2010. FTZ 177 was approved by the Board on March 12, 1991 (Board Order 513, 56 F.R. 12155; March 22, 1991) and expanded on July 2, 1993 (Board Order 648, 58 F.R. 37908; July 14, 1993). The general-purpose zone currently consists PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 of the following sites: Site 1: (40 acres)— within the Southwind Maritime Centre, located at 2751 Bluff Road, Mount Vernon (Posey County); Site 2: (30,000 sq. ft.)—Central Warehouse, Inc., located at 301 East Indiana Street, Evansville (Vanderburgh County); Site 3: (40,000 sq. ft.) Morton Avenue Warehouse, Inc., located at 2504 Lynch Road, Evansville (Vanderburgh County); and, Site 4: (78 acres) Evansville Regional Airport, located at 7801 Bussing Drive, Evansville (Vanderburgh County), Indiana. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Vanderburgh, Dubois, Pike, Gibson, Knox, Daviess, Spencer, Warrick and Posey Counties, Indiana, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Owensboro-Evansville Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project to include all of the existing sites as ‘‘magnet’’ sites. The ASF allows for the possible exemption of one magnet site from the ‘‘sunset’’ time limits that generally apply to sites under the ASF, and the applicant proposes that Site 1 be so exempted. No usage-driven sites are being requested at this time. Because the ASF only pertains to establishing or reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the application would have no impact on FTZ 177’s authorized subzones. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Claudia Hausler of the FTZ Staff is designated examiner to evaluate and analyze the facts and information presented in the application and case record and to report findings and recommendations to the Board. Public comment is invited from interested parties. Submissions (original and 3 copies) shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is July 6, 2010. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to July 19, 2010. A copy of the application will be available for public inspection at the Office of the Executive Secretary, Foreign-Trade Zones Board, Room 2111, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230–0002, and in the ‘‘Reading Room’’ section of the Board’s Web site, which is accessible via http:// www.trade.gov/ftz.

I. Abstract

    The U.S. Government (USG) Trade Event Information Request (Form 
ITA-4136P) is sent to any firm that requests senior-level USG 
witnessing of a

[[Page 24570]]

commercial milestone, e.g., an announcement, contract, or business 
agreement signing, at a public event designed to highlight a company's 
commercial success in an overseas project or procurement competition. 
The Advocacy Center, appropriate ITA officials, U.S. Embassies/
Consulates worldwide, and other federal government agencies that 
provide advocacy support to U.S. firms, will request firm(s) seeking 
USG advocacy support to complete the Trade Event Information Request 
form.
    This information is needed to ensure that the subject milestone to 
be witnessed is either a legally-binding contract or a commercially-
significant announcement, which includes highlighted U.S. export 
content. Furthermore, the information contained on the form helps the 
U.S. Department of Commerce staff determine if USG association with the 
event or activity is in the best interest of the USG. The information 
collected permits staff to review details of the milestone to be 
witnessed, and to make an evaluation on: (a) Whether the contract or 
announcement is actually ready for final signature or public 
disclosure; (b) whether additional USG advocacy may be required prior 
to the event in question; (c) whether the level of U.S. company 
participation and foreign government official participation, if 
appropriate, is at a level high enough to recommend senior-level USG 
participation; and (d) where U.S. export content associated with the 
contract/announcement would be sourced. If this information were not 
collected, staff could not make the appropriate evaluation prior to USG 
senior-level involvement.

II. Method of Collection

    Information will be collected by paper format and via e-mail.
