Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 77, No. 100 / Wednesday, May 23, 2012 / Notices evaluation and reporting requirements; and (4) established the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) indicators for TCPCTIP. With these waivers and extension of the project period, the current two TCPCTIP grantees may request continuation awards for FY 2013. We will consider continuation award requests under the current TCPCTIP statutory authority, subject to the requirements of 34 CFR 75.253, including the requirement that each grantee demonstrate that it is making substantial progress performing its TCPCTIP grant activities based on the requirements in our May 2007 notice inviting applications. We will make decisions regarding continuation awards based on information provided in grantee requests for continuation awards, including information provided in program narratives, budgets and budget narratives, and performance reports. Any activities to be carried out during the continuation year must be consistent with, or be a logical extension of the scope, goals, and objectives of, each grantee’s application as approved in the 2007 TCPCTIP competition. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Waiver of Delayed Effective Date The Administrative Procedure Act requires that a substantive rule must be published at least 30 days before its effective date, except as otherwise provided for good cause (5 U.S.C. 553(d)(3)). During the 30-day public comment period on the notice of proposed waivers and extension of project period, no comments were submitted. Therefore, except for minor editorial and technical revisions, there are no differences between the proposed and final notices of waivers and extension of the project period for TCPCTIP. In addition, given the fact that the additional period of funding is only for a 12-month period, or longer if Congress continues to appropriate funds for TCPCTIP under the existing program authority, and to be able to make timely continuation grants to the two entities affected, the Secretary has determined that a delayed effective date is unnecessary and contrary to the public interest. Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification The Secretary certifies that these waivers and extension will not have a significant economic impact on a substantial number of small entities. The small entities that will be affected by these waivers and extension are the two current TCPCTIP grantees. The Secretary certifies that these waivers and extension will not have a VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 May 22, 2012 Jkt 226001 significant economic impact on these TCPCTIP entities because these waivers and extension impose minimal compliance costs to extend projects already in existence, and the activities required to support the additional year or years of funding will not impose additional regulatory burdens or require unnecessary Federal supervision. Furthermore, the costs of carrying out these activities could be paid for with program funds. Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 This notice of final waivers and extension does not contain any information collection requirements. Intergovernmental Review The TCPCTIP is not subject to Executive Order 12372 and the regulations in 34 CFR part 79.
