[FR Doc. 2013–00689 Filed 1–14–13; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3410–KD–P DEPARTMENT OF COMMERCE Foreign-Trade Zones Board [B–1–2013] srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with Foreign-Trade Zone 3—San Francisco, California; Application for Expansion and Expansion of Service Area Under Alternative Site Framework An application has been submitted to the Foreign-Trade Zones (FTZ) Board (the Board) by the San Francisco Port Commission, grantee of Foreign-Trade Zone 3, requesting authority to expand its service area under the alternative site framework (ASF) adopted by the Board (15 CFR Sec. 400.2(c)), as well as to include an additional usage-driven site. The ASF is an option for grantees for the establishment or reorganization of zones and can permit significantly greater flexibility in the designation of new subzones or ‘‘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 zone. 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 docketed on January 9, 2013. FTZ 3 was approved by the Board on March 10, 1948 (Board Order 12, 13 FR 1459, 3/19/48) and the zone was reorganized under the ASF on October 7, 2010 (Board Order 1718, 75 FR 64708, 10/20/2010). The zone project currently has a service area that includes the City and County of San Francisco and San Mateo County, California. The applicant is now requesting authority to expand the service area of the zone to include Contra Costa, Marin and Solano Counties, as well as portions of Napa and Sonoma Counties, California, as described in the application. If approved, the grantee would be able to serve sites throughout the expanded service area based on companies’ needs for FTZ designation. The proposed expanded service area is adjacent to the San Francisco U.S. Customs and Border Protection Port of Entry. The applicant is also requesting authority to include an additional usage-driven site: Proposed Site 6 (15.5 VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 Jan 14, 2013 Jkt 229001 acres)—Coda Automotive Company, 2050 Park Road, Benicia, California (Solano County). In accordance with the Board’s regulations, Christopher Kemp 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 shall be addressed to the Board’s Executive Secretary at the address below. The closing period for their receipt is March 18, 2013. Rebuttal comments in response to material submitted during the foregoing period may be submitted during the subsequent 15-day period to April 1, 2013.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) invites organizations to provide products and technical expertise to support and demonstrate security platforms for exchange of electronic health care information by healthcare providers. This notice is the initial step for the National Cybersecurity Center of Excellence (NCCoE) in the Secure srobinson on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:00 Jan 14, 2013 Jkt 229001 Exchange of Electronic Health Information project.

Additional details about the Secure Exchange of Electronic Health Information project will be available at: http://nccoe.nist.gov/hit. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The NCCoE, hosted by NIST, is a public-private collaboration for accelerating the widespread adoption of integrated cybersecurity tools and technologies. The NCCoE will bring together experts from industry, government, and academia under one roof to develop practical, interoperable cybersecurity approaches that address the real world needs of complex Information Technology (IT) systems. By accelerating dissemination and use of these integrated tools and technologies for protecting IT assets, the NCCoE will enhance trust in U.S. IT communications, data, and storage systems; lower risk for companies and individuals in the use of IT systems; and encourage development of innovative, job-creating cybersecurity products and services. The project is not restricted to organizations required to comply with the standards and implementation specifications promulgated under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) of 1996 or to organizations using EHR technology that complies with the standards, implementation specifications, and certification criteria promulgated under the Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act of 2009. NIST expects that participation in the project will help participating organizations gain knowledge that will help them comply with these requirements. Process: NIST is soliciting responses from all sources of relevant security PO 00000 Frm 00015 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2953 capabilities (e.g., vendors, academia, and integrators). Interested parties should contact NIST using the information provided in the FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT section of this notice. Each interested party will be provided with a certification letter, which the party must complete and submit to NIST by the date provided in the DATES section of this notice. The certification letter must be completed and submitted to NIST by the responding organization. NIST will contact interested parties if there are questions regarding the responsiveness of the certification letters to the project objective or project requirements identified below. NIST will select participants who have submitted complete certification letters on a first come, first served basis within each category of product components or capabilities listed below up to the number of participants in each category necessary to carry out this project. Selected participants will be required to enter into a consortium Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with NIST. NIST published a notice in the Federal Register on October 19, 2012 (77 FR 64314) inviting U.S. companies to enter into ‘‘National Cybersecurity Excellence Partnerships’’ (NCEPs) in furtherance of the NCCoE. For this demonstration project NCEP partners will not be given priority for participation. Project Objective: Healthcare providers increasingly need to securely exchange electronic health information with each other. The confidentiality, integrity, and availability of this information must be protected. Secure exchange of electronic health information is often particularly challenging for small healthcare providers, who may lack the security infrastructure or expertise that larger healthcare providers possess. Other challenges with secure electronic health information exchange include the variety of client devices (desktops, laptops, and mobile devices) and the range of healthcare data exchange standards. Major security concerns for secure electronic health information exchange include, but are not limited to, the following categories: • Lack of physical security controls (e.g., increased risk of loss or theft for mobile devices, public proximity to client devices) • Use of untrusted client devices (lack of security features or circumvention of those features) • Use of untrusted networks (e.g., broadband, WiFi, WiMAX, cellular networks) E:\FR\FM\15JAN1.SGM 15JAN1
