Agency Information Collection Activities: Announcement of Board Approval Under Delegated Authority and Submission to OMB, 32468-32469 [2010-13760]

Download as PDF emcdonald on DSK2BSOYB1PROD with NOTICES 32468 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 109 / Tuesday, June 8, 2010 / Notices Applying these requirements would be inconsistent with public interest; (2) iron, steel, and the relevant manufactured goods are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality; or (3) inclusion of iron, steel, and the relevant manufactured goods produced in the United States will increase the cost of the overall project by more than 25 percent. The April 28 memorandum defines ‘‘reasonably available quantity’’ as the quantity of iron, steel, or relevant manufactured good is available or will be available at the time needed and place needed, and in the proper form or specification as specified in the project plans and design. Based on additional research by EPA’s consulting contractor (Cadmus), and to the best of the Region’s knowledge at this time, the City attempted without success, to meet the Buy American requirements. Furthermore, the purpose of the ARRA provisions was to stimulate economic recovery by funding current infrastructure construction, not to delay projects that are already shovel ready by requiring entities, like the City, to halt construction pending manufacture of domestically produced goods. To further delay construction is in direct conflict with the most fundamental economic purposes of ARRA; to create or retain jobs. The Grants and Strategic Planning Unit has reviewed this waiver request and has determined that the supporting documentation provided by the City is sufficient to meet the following criteria listed under Section 1605(b) and in the April 28 memorandum: Iron, Steel, and manufactured goods are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available quantities and of a satisfactory quality. The basis for this project waiver is the authorization provided in Section 1605(b)(2), due to the lack of U.S. production of a 42-inch by 24-inch AWWA C153 cement lined mechanical joint reducer tee fitting, in order to meet the City’s design schedule and specifications. The March 31, 2009, Delegation of Authority Memorandum provided Regional Administrators with the authority to issue exceptions to Section 1605 of ARRA within the geographic boundaries of their respective regions and with respect to requests by individual grant recipients. Having established both a proper basis to specify the particular good required for this project, and that this manufactured good was not available from a producer in the United States, the City is hereby granted a waiver from VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:31 Jun 07, 2010 Jkt 220001 the Buy American requirements of Section 1605(a) of Public Law 111–5 for the purchase of a 42-inch by 24-inch AWWA C153 cement lined mechanical joint reducer tee fitting from a manufacturer outside of the U.S. This supplementary information constitutes the detailed written justification required by Section 1605(c) for waivers based on a finding under subsection (b).
