Download as PDF wreier-aviles on DSK5TPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 64264 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 208 / Monday, October 28, 2013 / Notices performed covered functions, at any time and duration, on the operator’s jurisdictional pipeline facilities. With this operator-contractor association rule lodged in the programming, DAMIS designates contractor login information that is solely and directly associated with the operator who has listed them as a ‘‘covered function performing’’ contractor. DAMIS also captures one contractor employer entry as a ‘‘data of record’’ for accounting purposes and avoiding duplication of data. Eliminating these processes has the possible unintended consequence of degrading data security or forcing the agency to create a login process that is complicated, requiring additional processes such as contractor registration, to assure data integrity. The suggestion for developing a process for downloading a DAMIS file onto a transportation employer’s computer server and then uploading it back to DAMIS while laudable is replete with potential IT security challenges. Among them are: Providing prescriptive stakeholder data entry procedures (especially those with limited computer skills); programing challenges associated with each DOT Agency; and agency budgetary considerations for developing such programming. With respect to item 3, we mentioned earlier DAMIS is an on-line portal to the electronic MIS form. Because of the nature of the each transportation industry, each DOT Agency may require different log-in and setup procedures to ensure the accountability by those entities required to submit MIS information. These administrative procedures are external to the actual completion of the MIS form and are independent of the estimated time to actually enter the MIS data once in DAMIS. In the DOT Agency example, PHMSA is being cited as duplicating the reporting requirements for contractor employers. Each contractor login designation is uniquely associated with the operator employer who has identified them in the DAMIS electronic reporting system. This reporting association is consistent with PHMSA regulatory mandate regarding operator monitoring and reporting requirements under Title 49 CFR part 199, 199.115 and 245, which address contractor covered employees. With respect to item 4, while we recognized the value of MIS provider service performed by C/TPAs, accommodating them for business process efficiency, with a single login, presents significant potential risk to maintaining data integrity and security. Moreover, current regulations assign VerDate Mar<15>2010 14:52 Oct 25, 2013 Jkt 232001 accountability and responsibility on the employer for MIS reporting. With regard to entering multiple contractor MIS data under the PHMSA regulation, operator employers, or their designated C/TPAs, always had the option of issuing the DAMIS unique user name and password to these contractors, and then allowing them to enter their data directly into DAMIS. This option is utilized effectively with DOT/FTA grantees/grantors, which allows for shared responsibility for this MIS information. In similar fashion, the pipeline safety operator employer, or their designated C/TPA, can monitor contractor employers’ submissions for data review and approval. Utilizing this process could alleviate the number of contractor MIS data has to be physically entered by operator employers or their C/TPA.

This program was submitted subsequent to a determination by FAA that the associated Noise Exposure Maps submitted under 14 CFR part 150 for the Southwest Florida International Airport were in compliance with applicable requirements effective February 8, 2013, and was published in the Federal Register on February 8, 2013. The proposed Noise Compatibility Program will be approved or disapproved on or before April 19, 2014. DATES: Effective Date: The effective date of the start of FAA’s review of the associated noise compatibility program is October 21, 2013. The public comment period ends December 20, 2013. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Allan Nagy, Federal Aviation Administration, Orlando Airports District Office, 5950 Hazeltine National Drive, Orlando, FL 32822, (407) 812– 6331. Comments on the proposed noise compatibility program should also be submitted to the above office. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces that the FAA is reviewing a proposed Noise Compatibility Program for Southwest Florida International Airport which will be approved or disapproved on or before April 19, 2014. This notice also announces the availability of this program for public review and comment. An airport operator who has submitted Noise Exposure Maps that are found by FAA to be in compliance with the requirements of Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) Part 150, may submit a Noise Compatibility Program for FAA approval which sets forth the measures the operator has taken or proposes to reduce existing noncompatible uses and prevent the introduction of additional noncompatible uses. The FAA has formally received the Noise Compatibility Program for Southwest Florida International Airport, effective on October 21, 2013. The airport operator has requested that the FAA review this material and that the noise mitigation measures, to be implemented jointly by the airport and surrounding communities, be approved as a Noise Compatibility Program under Section 47504 of the Act. Preliminary review of the submitted material indicates that it conforms to the E:\FR\FM\28OCN1.SGM 28OCN1 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 208 / Monday, October 28, 2013 / Notices requirements for the submittal of Noise Compatibility Programs, but that further review will be necessary prior to approval or disapproval of the program.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The FHWA, in cooperation with the Tennessee Department of Transportation, is rescinding the notice of intent to prepare an EIS for the proposed State Route 71, South Knoxville Boulevard (James White Parkway) from near the existing Chapman Highway/Governor John Sevier Highway interchange to Moody Avenue. The proposed project was approximately 5 miles in length. The FHWA approved the Draft EIS (DEIS) on September 28, 2012. The project as described in the DEIS was to provide an efficient and safe transportation facility that would enhance transportation service by improving access in the South Knoxville area and help relieve traffic congestion on Chapman Highway. During the DEIS process, TDOT conducted public involvement and agency coordination, developed a purpose and need for the project, and developed preliminary alternatives. The preliminary alternatives included a No-Build alternative, and three build alternatives on new location east of the Chapman Highway/Governor John Sevier Highway interchange and extending north westward to the existing State Route 71, South Knoxville Boulevard (James White Parkway) terminus at Moody Avenue. After consideration of public comments, the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization (TPO) removed the project from their draft Fiscal Year (FY) 2014–2017 Transportation Improvement Program (TIP) in August of 2013. Subsequently, the FY 2014–2017 Knoxville TIP was adopted by the TPO Executive Board on October 16, 2013, and did not include the State Route 71 project. Based on the Knoxville Regional TPO’s intent to not advance the State Route 71 project, TDOT is terminating future development of the EIS. Comments and questions concerning the proposed action should be directed to FHWA at the address provided above.
