Proposals (or any other material) submitted in response to this notice will not be returned. Proposals submitted are expected to be unclassified and have no more than four single-sided pages (excluding cover page and resumes). The Coast Guard will select proposals at its sole discretion on the basis of: (1) How well they communicate an understanding of, and ability to meet, the proposed CRADA’s goal; and (2) How well they address the following criteria: (a) Technical capability to support the non-Federal party contributions described; and (b) Resources available for supporting the non-Federal party contributions described. Currently, the Coast Guard is considering UrsaNav, Inc., for participation in this CRADA. This consideration is based on UrsaNav, Inc.’s: (1) Expertise, experience, and interest in low-frequency ‘‘precise time’’ technology; and (2) capability to provide the significant contributions required for the CRADA work. However, we do not wish to exclude other viable participants from this or future similar CRADAs. This is a technology transfer/ development effort. Presently, the Coast Guard has no plan to acquire, operate, or provide alternative wireless time technology or services. Since the goal of this CRADA is to identify and investigate the advantages, disadvantages, performance, costs, and other issues associated with using alternative wireless time technology, and not to set future Coast Guard acquisition requirements for the same, non-Federal CRADA participants will not be excluded from any future Coast Guard procurements based solely on their participation in this CRADA. Special consideration will be given to small business firms/consortia, and preference will be given to business units located in the U.S. pmangrum on DSK3VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Authority This notice is issued under the authority of 15 U.S.C. 3710(a), 5 U.S.C. 552(a), and 33 CFR 1.05–1. Dated: January 3, 2012. Alan N. Arsenault, Capt, USCG, Commanding Officer, U.S. Coast Guard Research and Development Center.

Committee Management; Notice of Federal Advisory Committee Meeting; correction. AGENCY: ACTION: The Coast Guard published in the Federal Register of January 9, 2012, a notice announcing a National Maritime Security Advisory Committee (NMSAC) public meeting on January 18–19, 2012, in Arlington, VA. This notice corrects that previous notice to add an explanation for why 15-days advance notice was not given. DATES: The Committee will meet on Wednesday, January 18, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Thursday, January 19, 2012 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. This meeting may close early if all business is finished. Written material and requests to make oral presentations should reach us on or before January 13, 2012. ADDRESSES: The Committee will meet at the American Bureau of Shipping, 1400 Key Blvd., Suite 800, Arlington, VA 22209. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mr. Ryan Owens, ADFO of NMSAC, 2100 2nd Street SW., Stop 7581, Washington, DC 20593–7581; telephone (202) 372– 1108 or email ryan.f.owens@uscg.mil. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Coast Guard’s January 9, 2012 notice of the January 18–19, 2012, NMSAC meeting inadvertently failed to contain an explanation for its publication less than 15 calendar days prior to the meeting, as required by General Services Administration rules 41 CFR 102– 3.150(b). The reason the notice was published only 9 calendar days prior to the meeting was an administrative delay due to the Federal holidays. The Coast Guard regrets the delay in publication, but notes that the notice was publicly available on the Federal Register Web site 13 calendar days prior to the meeting. Additionally, all known interested parties were made aware of the meeting with sufficient time for planning purposes. It is critical that this meeting be held on the announced meeting date because delays in committee discussions could have significant ramifications for ongoing Coast Guard studies and evaluations on the agenda for the upcoming meeting. Maintaining the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00046 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 current meeting schedule allows the Coast Guard to continue deliberations and forward progress regarding multiple maritime security initiatives. If you have been adversely affected by the delay in publishing the notice, contact Mr. Ryan Owens (see FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT) and the Coast Guard will make every effort to accommodate you.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This Notice announces that the Secretary of Homeland Security (Secretary) has extended the designation of El Salvador for temporary protected status (TPS) for 18 months from its current expiration date of March 9, 2012 through September 9, 2013. The Secretary has determined that an extension is warranted because the conditions in El Salvador that prompted the TPS designation continue to be met. There continues to be a substantial, but temporary, disruption of living conditions in El Salvador resulting from a series of earthquakes in 2001, and El Salvador remains unable, temporarily, to handle adequately the return of its nationals. This Notice also sets forth procedures necessary for nationals of El Salvador (or aliens having no nationality who last habitually resided in El Salvador) with TPS to re-register and to apply for an extension of their Employment Authorization Documents (EADs) (Forms I–766) with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
