Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement; Technical Amendments, 17445-17446 [2014-07003]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 60 / Friday, March 28, 2014 / Rules and Regulations well does detect TCE consistently, but it is below the enforcement standard of 5 ppb. The blended production well water entering the air stripper is non-detect for any VOCs. The detection limit used by the city in its analyses is 0.7 ppb TCE. As a result, the implemented remedy at the ECMWF site has achieved the degree of cleanup as specified in the decision documents for all pathways of exposure. Operation and Maintenance Operation and maintenance (O&M) requirements outlined in the O&M Plan for the IRM were: (1) Routine maintenance of the air stripper as described in the manufacturer’s manual; and (2) sampling and analysis requirements of stripper influent and effluent, as previously discussed. TCE, 1,1–DCE, 1,1–DCA, 1,1,1–TCA and tetrachloroethene (PCE) are monitored regularly by the city of Eau Claire to ensure compliance with Wisconsin Enforcement Standards and the Safe Drinking Water Act Maximum Contaminant Limits (MCLs) for drinking water. Five-Year Review EPA conducted four five-year reviews at this site; the last report was dated July 17, 2012. EPA, in consultation with the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (WDNR), determined that the cleanup remedy at the ECMWF site is protective of human health and the environment because cleanup standards have been met at the site. Additionally, exposure pathways from the NPI site that could result in unacceptable risks are being controlled through the use of ICs. EPA has also determined that the air strippers at ECMWF can be taken offline as the groundwater entering the city’s well field has met the cleanup standards for over 5 years and is not expected to exceed the standards in the future. The city of Eau Claire has chosen to keep the air strippers on-line in the short term, although they may turn off the air strippers at a future date. Since unlimited use/unrestricted exposure has been met at the ECMWF site, future fiveyear reviews are not required. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with RULES Community Involvement Public participation activities have been satisfied as required in CERCLA Section 113(k), 42 U.S.C. 9613(k), and CERCLA section 117, 42 U.S.C. 9617. Documents in the deletion docket which EPA relied on for recommendation of the deletion of this site from the NPL are available to the public in the information repositories and at www.regulations.gov. VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:20 Mar 27, 2014 Jkt 232001 Determination That the Site Meets the Criteria for Deletion in the NCP The NCP (40 CFR 300.425(e)) states that a site may be deleted from the NPL when no further response action is appropriate. EPA, in consultation with the State of Wisconsin, has determined that all required response actions have been implemented and no further response action by the responsible parties is appropriate. V. Deletion Action EPA, with concurrence from the State of Wisconsin through the WDNR, has determined that all appropriate response actions under CERCLA have been completed. Therefore, EPA is deleting the Site from the NPL. Because EPA considers this action to be noncontroversial and routine, EPA is taking it without prior publication. This action will be effective May 27, 2014 unless EPA receives adverse comments by April 28, 2014. If adverse comments are received during the comment period, EPA will publish a timely withdrawal of this direct final Notice of Deletion before the effective date of the deletion, and it will not take effect. EPA will prepare a response to comments and continue with the deletion process on the basis of the notice of intent to delete and the comments already received. There will be no additional opportunity to comment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: I. Background Section 866 of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2011 (Pub. L. 111–383), enacted on January 7, 2011, authorized the Secretary of Defense to carry out a pilot program to assess the feasibility and advisability of acquiring militarypurpose nondevelopmental items in accordance with the streamlined procedures of the pilot program. Under this pilot program, DoD may enter into contracts with nontraditional defense contractors for the purpose of enabling DoD to acquire items that otherwise might not have been available to DoD, assist DoD in the rapid acquisition and fielding of capabilities needed to meet urgent operational needs, and protect the interests of the United States in paying fair and reasonable prices for the item or items acquired. This pilot program is designed to test whether the streamlined procedures, similar to those available for commercial items, can serve as an effective incentive for nontraditional defense contractors to (1) channel investment and innovation into areas that are useful to DoD and (2) provide items developed exclusively at private expense to meet validated military requirements. This final rule amends DFARS subpart 212.71, Pilot Program for PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Acquisition of Military-Purpose Nondevelopmental Items, to implement section 814, Extension of Pilot Program of Military Purpose Nondevelomental Items, of the National Defense Authorization Act for FY 2014. This rule extends the authority for this pilot program from January 6, 2016, to December 31, 2019. II. Publication of This Final Rule for Public Comment Is Not Required by Statute ‘‘Publication of proposed regulations’’, 41 U.S.C. 1707, is the statute that applies to the publication of the Federal Acquisition Regulation. Paragraph (a)(1) of the statute requires that a procurement policy, regulation, procedure or form (including an amendment or modification thereof) must be published for public comment if it relates to the expenditure of appropriated funds, and has either a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of the agency issuing the policy, regulation, procedure or form, or has a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors. Publication for public comment is not required because the rule does not have a significant effect beyond the internal operating procedures of DoD and does not have a significant cost or administrative impact on contractors or offerors as it merely extends the expiration date of an existing pilot program pursuant to statutory directive. III. Executive Orders 12866 and 13563 Executive Orders (E.O.s) 12866 and 13563 direct agencies to assess all costs and benefits of available regulatory alternatives and, if regulation is necessary, to select regulatory approaches that maximize net benefits (including potential economic, environmental, public health and safety effects, distributive impacts, and equity). E.O. 13563 emphasizes the importance of quantifying both costs and benefits, of reducing costs, of harmonizing rules, and of promoting flexibility. This is not a significant regulatory action and, therefore, was not subject to review under section 6(b) of E.O. 12866, Regulatory Planning and Review, dated September 30, 1993. This rule is not a major rule under 5 U.S.C. 804. IV. Regulatory Flexibility Act The Regulatory Flexibility Act does not apply to this rule because this final rule does not constitute a significant DFARS revision within the meaning of FAR 1.501–1, and 41 U.S.C. 1707 and does not require publication for public comment.
