ACTION: Notice. NSF is hereby granting a limited exemption of section 1605 of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Recovery Act), Public Law 111–5, 123 Stat. 115, 303 (2009), with respect to the purchase of the propulsion shaft bulkhead seals that will be used in the Alaska Region Research Vessel (ARRV). These seals protect the vessel from progressive flooding in the event of an emergency. DATES: February 24, 2012. ADDRESSES: National Science Foundation, 4201 Wilson Blvd., Arlington, Virginia 22230. SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 11161 Mr. Jeffrey Leithead, Division of Acquisition and Cooperative Support, 703–292– 4595. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: In accordance with section 1605(c) of the Recovery Act and section 176.80 of Title 2 of the Code of Federal Regulations, the National Science Foundation (NSF) hereby provides notice that on February 15, 2012, the NSF Chief Financial Officer, in accordance with a delegation order from the Director of the agency, granted a limited project exemption of section 1605 of the Recovery Act (Buy American provision) with respect to the propulsion shaft bulkhead seals that will be used in the ARRV. The basis for this exemption is section 1605(b)(2) of the Recovery Act, in that propulsion shaft bulkhead seals of satisfactory quality are not produced in the United States in sufficient and reasonably available commercial quantities. The total cost of the two required propulsion shaft bulkhead seals (∼$82,000) represents less than 0.1% of the total $148 million Recovery Act award provided toward construction of the ARRV. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Recovery Act appropriated $400 million to NSF for several projects being funded by the Foundation’s Major Research Equipment and Facilities Construction (MREFC) account. The ARRV is one of NSF’s MREFC projects. Section 1605(a) of the Recovery Act, the Buy American provision, states that none of the funds appropriated by the Act ‘‘may be used for a project for the construction, alteration, maintenance, or repair of a public building or public work unless all of the iron, steel, and manufactured goods used in the project are produced in the United States.’’ The ARRV has been developed under a cooperative agreement awarded to the University of Alaska, Fairbanks (UAF) that began in 2007. UAF executed the shipyard contract in December 2009 and the project is currently under construction. The purpose of the Recovery Act is to stimulate economic recovery in part by funding current construction projects like the ARRV that are ‘‘shovel ready’’ without requiring projects to revise their standards and specifications, or to restart the bidding process again. Subsections 1605(b) and (c) of the Recovery Act authorize the head of a Federal department or agency to waive the Buy American provision if the head of the agency finds that: (1) Applying the provision would be inconsistent with the public interest; (2) the relevant E:\FR\FM\24FEN1.SGM 24FEN1
