ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: BMD is initiating a project to demonstrate that commercially available conveyance security solutions can be utilized with a common data management system in the following Government operations (described in detail later): • Centralized Examination Station (CES) • In-bond • National Capital Region Secure Delivery • Cross-border Commerce BMD is looking to enter into a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) with interested partner(s) to test the interoperability and conveyance security capabilities of their solutions in a lab environment and then assess their ability to support CES, Inbond, National Capital Region Secure Delivery, and Cross-border Commerce operations in a technology demonstration. The results of the project are intended to serve as a data point for the standard under development for reusable electronic conveyance security devices (RECONS). The RECONS Standard will support certification of partner solutions to be used by industry for their crossborder commerce shipments (described in detail later) in addition to the Government in their aforementioned operations. The proposed term of the CRADA can be up to twenty-four (24) months. DATES: Submit comments on or before December 30, 2013. ADDRESSES: Mail comments and requests to participate to Jonathan McEntee, (ATTN: Jonathan McEntee, SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Ensuring cargo security as it flows through supply chains is a challenge faced by industry and governments, both domestically and internationally. There is a need to identify illegal activity introduced into the supply chain while facilitating the flow of legal commerce. A solution that provides greater security and facilitation of legal commerce is tracking the cargo conveyance as it moves through the supply chain and reporting any security breaches. The additional data is critical in assessing the risk level of cargo shipments and determining which shipments require more scrutiny rather than expedited processing. Operational Context Each operation requiring conveyance security is slightly different and it is important to understand the environment in which they will be employed to ensure understanding of the unique characteristics. Centralized Examination Stations (CES) Operations: Ports of entry (POEs) often are constrained in the physical space and resources available to conduct physical inspections at the facility. In order to prevent arriving conveyances awaiting inspection from negatively impacting the flow of shipments through the POEs, shipments selected for physical inspection are often directed to a facility (i.e. CES) located away from the POE. The shipments are secured with high security International Organization Standard (ISO) bolts while they are en route between the two facilities and legally remain within custody of CBP until they are cleared at the CES. Using RECONS in CES Operations will increase security by providing tracking between the POE and CES and ensuring they do not deviate from the designated route and/or compromise the integrity of the conveyance and the shipment. In addition, using RECONS for repeated trips rather than single-use ISO bolts will automate processes resulting in cost savings and efficiencies in operations. In-bond Operations: Duties are nominally assessed when a shipment E:\FR\FM\29NON1.SGM 29NON1
