The RPWG conducted its task from June to December 2011 and submitted recommendations to ARAC on December 14, 2011. ARAC accepted the recommendations on December 16, 2011 and forwarded them to the FAA. The entire recommendation report can be found at: http://www.faa.gov/ regulations_policies/rulemaking/ committees/arac/. The March 2012 ARAC Executive Committee meeting included a discussion of continuing the task to further test the RPWG’s methodology. This notice advises the public that the FAA has assigned, and the ARAC Executive Committee has accepted, the task to test the methodology and to develop a report including recommendations explaining the results. The Task The FAA has tasked the RPWG to provide advice and recommendations to further test the recommended methodology. The RPWG is expected to develop a report containing recommended changes to the methodology. This report should document both majority and minority positions on the findings and the rationale for each position. Any disagreements should be documented, including the rationale for each position and the reasons for the disagreement. In developing its recommendations, the RPWG shall: 1. Review the RPWG Phase I Recommendation Report. 2. Test the methodology and the tools using a subset of completed rulemakings provided by the FAA. 3. Develop measurable scoring evaluation to evaluate projects against each other. 4. Evaluate the results of the test and refine the process and the tools accordingly. Schedule: The recommendations must be forwarded to the ARAC Executive Committee for review and approval no later than September 2012.

If ARAC accepts the working group’s recommendations, it will send them to the FAA. Working Group Activity The RPWG must comply with the procedures adopted by ARAC. As part of the procedures, the RPWG must: 1. Recommend a work plan for completion of the task, including the rationale supporting such a plan, for consideration at the next ARAC Executive Committee meeting held following publication of this notice. 2. Provide a status report at each meeting of the ARAC Executive Committee. 3. Draft the recommendation report and required analyses and/or any other related materials or documents. 4. Present the final recommendations to the ARAC Executive Committee for review and approval. Participation in the Working Group The existing RPWG is comprised of technical experts having an interest in the assigned task. A working group member need not be a representative or a member of the full committee. All existing RPWG members who choose to participate in this task must actively participate by attending all meetings, and providing written comments when requested to do so. Each member must devote the resources necessary to support the working group in meeting any assigned deadlines. Each member must keep their management chain, and those they may represent, advised of working group activities and decisions to ensure the proposed technical solutions do not conflict with their sponsoring organization’s position when the subject is presented to ARAC for approval.
