Fisheries Off West Coast States; Coastal Pelagic Species Fisheries; Annual Specifications
Document Number: 2014-09180
Type: Rule
Date: 2014-04-22
Agency: Department of Commerce, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
NMFS issues this final rule to implement an annual catch limit (ACL), harvest guideline (HG), annual catch target (ACT), and associated annual reference points for Pacific sardine in the U.S. exclusive economic zone (EEZ) off the Pacific coast for a one-time interim harvest period of January 1, 2014, through June 30, 2014, and to set annual harvest levels, such as overfishing limit (OFL), acceptable biological catch (ABC), annual catch limit (ACL), for Pacific sardine for the whole calendar year 2014. These specifications were determined according to the Coastal Pelagic Species (CPS) Fishery Management Plan (FMP), and reflect the recent 6-month change to the starting date of the annual Pacific sardine fishery from January 1 to July 1. The 2014 ACT or maximum directed HG is 19,846 (mt). Based on the seasonal allocation framework in the FMP, this equates to a first period (January 1 to June 30) allocation of 6,946 mt (35% of ACT). This rule also establishes an adjusted directed non-tribal harvest allocation for this period of 5,446 mt. This value was reduced from the total first period allocation by 1000 mt for potential harvest by the Quinault Indian Nation as well as 500 mt to be used as an incidental set aside for other non-tribal commercial fisheries if the 5,446 mt limit is reached and directed fishing for sardine is closed. This rule is intended to conserve and manage the Pacific sardine stock off the U.S. West Coast.

Health Center Program
Document Number: 2014-09132
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-22
Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration
In accordance with the Awarding Agency Grants Management Manual (AAGAM) Chapter 1.03.103, the Bureau of Primary Health Care (BPHC) requests a class deviation to award low-cost extensions of up to 6 months or, when necessary, administrative supplements to minimize disruption of services for specific health center program service areas. Per the requirements for low-cost extensions outlined in the AAGAM Chapter 2.04.104B-4A.1.a.(5)(b), these extensions may not exceed 25 percent of the approved federal direct cost budget authorized for the budget period (exclusive of the additional funding requested) or $100,000. Likewise, per the requirements for administrative supplements outlined in the AAGAM Chapter 2.04.104B-4A.4.b, these supplements may not exceed 25 percent of the approved federal direct cost budget authorized for the budget period (exclusive of the additional funding) or $250,000, whichever is less. In each case, the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) is required to publish a notice in the Federal Register in advance of, or concurrent with, the awarding of the funds. BPHC is requesting a class deviation to the requirements for low- cost extensions to allow HRSA to award extensions that exceed 25 percent of the approved federal direct cost budget authorized for the budget period (exclusive of the additional funding requested) and/or $100,000 in cases where the grantee would not receive future continued support under the Health Center Program. Likewise, BPHC is requesting a class deviation to the requirements for administrative supplements to allow HRSA to award supplements that exceed 25 percent of the approved federal direct cost budget authorized for the budget period (exclusive of the additional funding) and/or $250,000 in cases where the award is to a currently funded grantee located in or adjacent to the service area of a grantee that will not receive continued support under the Health Center Program. BPHC is also requesting that the deviation allow for the publication of a consolidated notice in the Federal Register annually that summarizes the actions taken in the prior fiscal year. The sole purpose of these low-cost extensions or administrative supplements is to avoid a gap in the provision of critical health care services for a funded service area by providing a ``bridge'' until HRSA is able to make an award to an eligible applicant under a Service Area Competition (SAC) and/or to assure an orderly phase-out of Health Center Program activities by the current grantee. BPHC is not requesting that this class deviation cover single source replacement awards and will continue to request single case deviations for such non-competitive actions if necessary.

Call for Expert Reviewers to the U.S. Government Review of the Synthesis Report (SYR) of the Fifth Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)
Document Number: 2014-09126
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-04-22
Agency: Department of State
The United States Global Change Research Program, in cooperation with the Department of State, request expert review of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Second Order Draft (SOD) Synthesis Report (SYR) of the Fifth Assessment (AR5). More information on the report can be found at http://www.ipcc-syr.nl/. The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) (http:// www.unep.org/) and the World Meteorological Organization (WMO) (http:// www.wmo.int/pages/index_en.html) established the IPCC in 1988. In accordance with its mandate and as reaffirmed in various decisions by the Panel, the major activity of the IPCC is to prepare comprehensive and up-to-date assessments of policy-relevant scientific, technical, and socio-economic information for understanding the scientific basis of climate change, potential impacts, and options for mitigation and adaptation. The IPCC develops a comprehensive assessment spanning all the above topics approximately every six years. The First Assessment Report was completed in 1990, the Second Assessment Report in 1995, the Third Assessment Report in 2001, and the Fourth Assessment in 2007. Three working group volumes and a synthesis report comprise the Fifth Assessment Report. Working Group I assesses the scientific aspects of the climate system and climate change; Working Group II assesses the vulnerability of socio-economic and natural systems to climate change, potential negative and positive consequences, and options for adapting to it; and Working Group III assesses options for limiting greenhouse gas emissions and otherwise mitigating climate change. The Synthesis Report (SYR) synthesizes and integrates material contained with IPCC Assessment Reports and Special Reports. The SYR is to be based exclusively on material contained in the three Working Group Reports and Special Reports produced during the 5th or previous Assessment Cycles. The SYR is to be written in language accessible to non-technical users and guide readers to underlying materials if they wish to explore topics in greater depth. Procedures for the IPCC and its preparation of reports can be found at the following Web sites: http://www.ipcc.ch/organization/ organization_review.shtml -.UEY0LqSe7x8 http://ipcc.ch/organization/ organizationprocedures.shtml. In October 2010, the IPCC approved the outline for the SYR of AR5 (http://www.ipcc.ch/meetings/session32/syr_final_scoping_ document.pdf). Authors were nominated and selected in March of 2012. All IPCC reports go through two broad reviews: a first-order draft reviewed by experts, and a second-order draft reviewed by both experts and governments. The SOD of the SYR for the AR5 will be available for review beginning on 21 April 2014. As part of the U.S. Government Review of the SOD of the SYR for the AR5, the U.S. Government is soliciting comments from experts in relevant fields of expertise. Experts may now register to review the draft report at: http:// review.globalchange.gov; the report will be available for download once it is released on 21 April 2014. To be considered for inclusion in the U.S. Government submission, comments must be received by 5PM EDT Monday, 19 May 2014. The United States Global Change Research Program will coordinate collection and compilation of U.S. expert comments and the review of the report by a Review Committee of Federal scientists and program managers in order to develop a consolidated U.S. Government submission, which will be provided to the IPCC by 13 June 2014. Instructions for registering as a reviewer, the process of the review itself and details on how to submit comments, as well as the SOD of the report will be available at: http://review.globalchange.gov. Experts may choose to provide comments directly through the IPCC's expert review process, which occurs in parallel with the U.S. government & expert review. More information on the IPCC's comment process may be found at http://www.ipcc.ch/activities/activities.shtml and http://www.ipcc.ch/ pdf/ar5/review_of_wg_contributions.pdf. To avoid duplication, those participating in the U.S. Government & Expert Review process (via http://review.globalchange.gov) should not also participate in the Expert Review process that submits comments directly to the IPCC Secretariat. Comments to the U.S. government review should be submitted using the web-based system at: http://review.globalchange.gov. This certification will be published in the Federal Register.
