Download as PDF jdjones on DSK8KYBLC1PROD with NOTICES 74024 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 229 / Tuesday, November 30, 2010 / Notices the responsible program secretarial officer to develop a formal plan to meet this requirement within a reasonable timeframe. 3. Revise DOE Standard 3009–94 to identify clearly and unambiguously the requirements that must be met to demonstrate that an adequate level of protection for the public and workers is provided through a DSA. This should be accomplished, at a minimum, by: a. Clearly defining methodologies and providing acceptability criteria for controls, parameters, processes, analytical tools, and other data that should be used in preparation of a DSA, b. Delineating the criteria to be met for identification and analyses of an adequate set of Design Basis Accidents (for new facilities), or Evaluation Basis Accidents (for existing facilities), c. Providing criteria that must be met by the safety-class SSCs to (i) mitigate the consequences to a fraction of the Evaluation Guideline, or (ii) prevent the events by demonstrating an acceptable reliability for the preventive features, and d. Establishing a process and path forward to meeting (a) through (c) above through compensatory measures and planned improvements if the DSA cannot demonstrate compliance. 4. Amend 10 CFR Part 830 by incorporating the revised version of DOE Standard 3009–94 into the text as a requirement, instead of as a safe harbor cited in Table 2. 5. Formally establish the minimum criteria and requirements that govern federal approval of a DSA, by revision to DOE Standard 1104–2009 and other appropriate documents. The criteria and requirements should include: a. The authorities that can be delegated, the required training and qualification of the approval authority, and the boundaries and limitations of the approval authority’s responsibilities, b. Actions to be taken if conditions are beyond the delegated approval authority’s specified boundaries or limitations, c. The organization or the individual who can approve a DSA that is beyond the delegated approval authority’s specified boundaries or limitations, d. The regulatory process that must be followed if conditions are beyond the delegated approval authority’s specified boundaries or limitations, and any compensatory actions to be taken, and e. The criteria an approval authority must use to quantify the acceptance of risk for continued operations when offsite dose consequences approach the Evaluation Guideline. 6. Formally designate the responsible organization and identify the processes for performing oversight to ensure that the responsibilities identified in Item 5 above are fully implemented. Peter S.

Title of Collection: Integrated Evaluation of ARRA Funding, Implementation and Outcomes, Recruitment Package. OMB Control Number: 1850–NEW. Agency Form Number(s): N/A. Frequency of Responses: Once. Affected Public: State, Local, or Tribal Government, State Educational Agencies or Local Educational Agencies. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 5,551. Total Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 1,509. Abstract: On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) into law (Pub. L. 111–5). ARRA supports investments in innovative strategies that are intended to lead to improved results for students, long-term gains in school and local education agency (LEA) capacity for success, and increased productivity and effectiveness. This evaluation will focus on answering four sets of policy/research questions: • To what extent did ARRA funds go to the intended recipients? • Is ARRA associated with the implementation of the key reform strategies it promoted? • What implementation supports and challenges are associated with ARRA? • Is ARRA associated with improved outcomes? The integrated evaluation will draw on existing data, including ED data collections, ED ARRA program files, ARRA required reporting, and databases of achievement and other outcomes. The evaluation will also collect new information through surveys of (1) the 50 states and the District of Columbia, (2) a nationally representative sample of school districts, and (3) a nationally representative sample of schools within the sampled school districts. Surveys are planned for spring 2011, spring 2012, and spring 2013. Subsamples of school districts will also be drawn to receive a smaller set of questions (polls); these polls will be administered twice between 2011 and 2013. A report will be prepared in the first year of the evaluation to describe the distribution of funding. A report and PO 00000 Frm 00027 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 74025 state tabulations will be prepared after each annual survey. The first report, based on the 2011 surveys, will focus on early ARRA implementation and strategies. The second report, based on the 2012 surveys, will expand upon strategies implemented under ARRA. The final report will draw upon existing data on outcomes as well as data from the 2013 surveys. This collection is for the recruitment phase of the evaluation.
