Download as PDF 47582 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 151 / Friday, August 6, 2010 / Notices sroberts on DSKD5P82C1PROD with NOTICES (3) The Project Director and other key personnel clearly have the professional qualifications and experience necessary to implement their assigned project tasks; and (4) The time commitments of the Project Director, key personnel, and partners are appropriate to the tasks assigned. (e) Adequacy of resources. In determining the adequacy of resources for the proposed project, we consider the following factors: (1) The adequacy of support to be provided (i.e., facilities, equipment, supplies, or other resources) by participating agencies and institutions at the State and local levels. (2) Whether the budget is appropriate and the costs are reasonable in relation to the objectives and design of the proposed project. (f) Evaluation: In determining the quality of the proposed project evaluation, we review each application to determine the extent to which— (1) The proposed project evaluation is feasible and appropriate for evaluating the constancy of the implementation of the selected POS by the participating LEAs in years 2 through 4 of the project; (2) The proposed evaluation is feasible and appropriate for evaluating the effectiveness of each of the 10 Framework components in each LEA; (3) The proposed evaluation will be conducted by individuals or entities that possess the necessary background and expertise in project evaluation; and (4) The applicant expresses its commitment to participate in the Department’s Evaluation Design Meeting and has included suggestions regarding the use of student outcome data that it would be able to access through the State’s longitudinal data system, including any documented valid and reliable alternative methods for collecting individual student employment outcome data, to assess the progress of students enrolled in the POS. This notice does not preclude us from proposing additional priorities, requirements, definitions, or selection criteria, subject to meeting applicable rulemaking requirements. Note: This notice does not solicit applications. In any year in which we choose to use one or more of these priorities, requirements, and selection criteria, we invite applications through a notice in the Federal Register. Executive Order 12866: This notice has been reviewed in accordance with Executive Order 12866. Under the terms of the order, we have assessed the potential costs and benefits of this final regulatory action. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:35 Aug 05, 2010 Jkt 220001 The potential costs associated with this final regulatory action are those resulting from statutory requirements and those we have determined as necessary for administering this program effectively and efficiently. In assessing the potential costs and benefits—both quantitative and qualitative—of this final regulatory action, we have determined that the benefits of the final priority, requirements, and selection criteria justify the costs. This action would provide additional resources to States to help them implement an existing statutory requirement under the Act, the implementation of programs of study at the State and local levels. We have determined, also, that this final regulatory action does not unduly interfere with State, local, and tribal governments in the exercise of their governmental functions. Intergovernmental Review: This program is subject to Executive Order 12372 and the regulations in 34 CFR part 79. One of the objectives of the Executive order is to foster an intergovernmental partnership and a strengthened federalism. The Executive order relies on processes developed by State and local governments for coordination and review of proposed Federal financial assistance. This document provides early notification of our specific plans and actions for this program.
