RUS will rank all qualifying applications by their final score. Applications will be selected for funding, based on the highest scores and the availability of funding for RFP grants. Each applicant will be notified in writing of the score its application receives. B. In making its decision about your application, RUS may determine that your application is: 1. Eligible and selected for funding, 2. Eligible but offered fewer funds than requested, 3. Eligible but not selected for funding, or 4. Ineligible for the grant. C. In accordance with 7 CFR Part 1900, subpart B, you generally have the right to appeal adverse decisions. Some adverse decisions cannot be appealed. For example, if you are denied RUS funding due to a lack of funds available for the grant program, this decision cannot be appealed. However, you may make a request to the National Appeals Division (NAD) to review the accuracy of our finding that the decision cannot be appealed. The appeal must be in writing and filed at the appropriate Regional Office, which can be found at http://www.nad.usda.gov/offices.htm or by calling (703) 305–1166. D. Applicants selected for funding will complete a grant agreement, which outlines the terms and conditions of the grant award. E. Grantees will be reimbursed as follows: 1. SF–270, ‘‘Request for Advance or Reimbursement,’’ will be completed by the grantee and submitted to either the State or National Office. 2. Upon receipt of a properly completed SF–270, the funds will be requested through the field office terminal system. Ordinarily, payment will be made within 30 days after receipt of a proper request for reimbursement. F. Any change in the scope of the project, budget adjustments of more than 10 percent of the total budget, or any other significant change in the project must be reported to and approved by the approval official by written amendment to the grant agreement. Any change not approved may be cause for termination of the grant. G. Grantees shall constantly monitor performance to ensure that time schedules are being met, projected work by time periods is being accomplished, and other performance objectives are being achieved. The Grantee will provide project reports as follows: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:47 May 23, 2011 Jkt 223001 1. SF–269, ‘‘Financial Status Report (short form),’’ and a project performance activity report will be required of all grantees on a quarterly basis, due 30 days after the end of each quarter. 2. A final project performance report will be required with the last SF–269 due 90 days after the end of the last quarter in which the project is completed. The final report may serve as the last quarterly report. 3. All multi-State grantees are to submit an original of each report to the National Office. Grantees serving only one State are to submit an original of each report to the State Office. The project performance reports should detail, preferably in a narrative format, activities that have transpired for the specific time period. H. The grantee will provide an audit report or financial statements as follows: 1. Grantees expending $500,000 or more Federal funds per fiscal year will submit an audit conducted in accordance with OMB Circular A–133. The audit will be submitted within 9 months after the grantee’s fiscal year. Additional audits may be required if the project period covers more than one fiscal year. 2. Grantees expending less than $500,000 will provide annual financial statements covering the grant period, consisting of the organization’s statement of income and expense and balance sheet signed by an appropriate official of the organization. Financial statements will be submitted within 90 days after the grantee’s fiscal year. 3. Recipient and Subrecipient Reporting. The applicant must have the necessary processes and systems in place to comply with the reporting requirements for first-tier sub-awards and executive compensation under the Federal Funding Accountability and Transparency Act of 2006 in the event the applicant receives funding unless such applicant is exempt from such reporting requirements pursuant to 2 CFR part 170, § 170.110(b). The reporting requirements under the Transparency Act pursuant to 2 CFR part 170 are as follows: a. First Tier Sub-Awards of $25,000 or more in non-Recovery Act funds (unless they are exempt under 2 CFR Part 170) must be reported by the Recipient to http://www.fsrs.gov no later than the end of the month following the month the obligation was made. b. The Total Compensation of the Recipient’s Executives (5 most highly compensated executives) must be reported by the Recipient (if the Recipient meets the criteria under 2 CFR PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Part 170) to http://www.ccr.gov by the end of the month following the month in which the award was made. c.

(the Board) by the Board of County Commissioners of Sedgwick County, grantee of FTZ 161, requesting authority to reorganize and expand the zone under the alternative site framework (ASF) adopted by the Board (74 FR 1170–1173, 01/12/09 (correction 74 FR 3987, 01/22/09); 75 FR 71069–71070, 11/22/10). 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 May 17, 2011. FTZ 161 was approved by the Board on September 8, 1989 (Board Order 438, 54 FR 39558, 09/27/89), and consists of the following sites: Site 1 (279 acres)— Garvey Industrial Park, 5755 South Hoover Road, Wichita; and Site 1A (1.15 acres)—United Warehouse, 901 East 45th Street North, Wichita. The grantee’s proposed service area under the ASF would be Butler, Harvey, McPherson, Reno, Saline, Sedgwick and Sumner Counties, Kansas. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the service area based on PO 00000 Frm 00012 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed service area is within and adjacent to the Wichita Customs and Border Protection port of entry. The applicant is requesting authority to reorganize its existing zone project under the ASF as follows: Modify Site 1 by removing 119 acres due to changed circumstances (new acreage—160 acres); renumber Site 1A to Site 2; and Sites 1 and 2 would become ‘‘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 2 be so exempted. The applicant is also requesting approval of the following initial ‘‘usagedriven’’ site: Proposed Site 3 (108.6 acres)—Siemens Energy, Inc., Wind Turbine Nacelle Assembly Facility, 1000 Commerce Street, Hutchinson (Reno County). Because the ASF only pertains to establishing or reorganizing a general-purpose zone, the application would have no impact on FTZ 161’s authorized subzones. In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Camille Evans 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 E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1

U.S.C. 2341 et seq.), the Economic Development Administration (EDA) has 
received petitions for certification of eligibility to apply for Trade 
Adjustment Assistance from the firms listed below. Accordingly, EDA has 
initiated investigations to determine whether increased imports into

decrease in sales or production of each petitioning firm.
