SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ONMS serves as the trustee for 14 marine VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:31 Aug 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 protected areas encompassing more than 170,000 square miles of ocean and Great Lakes waters from the Hawaiian Islands to the Florida Keys, and from Lake Huron to American Samoa. National marine sanctuaries protect our Nation’s most vital coastal and marine natural and cultural resources, and through active research, management, and public engagement, sustains healthy environments that are the foundation for thriving communities and stable economies. One of the many ways ONMS ensures public participation in the designation and management of national marine sanctuaries is through the formation of advisory councils. National marine sanctuary advisory councils are community-based advisory groups established to provide advice and recommendations to the superintendents of the national marine sanctuaries and the Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument on issues including management, science, service, and stewardship; and to serve as liaisons between their constituents in the community and the sanctuary. Additional information on ONMS and its advisory councils can be found at http://sanctuaries.noaa.gov. Information related to the purpose, policies and operational requirements for advisory councils can be found in the charter for a particular advisory council (http:// sanctuaries.noaa.gov/management/ac/ council_charters.html) and the National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Council Implementation Handbook (http:// www.sanctuaries.noaa.gov/ management/ac/acref.html).

The home-based NPA was among the AbilityOne NPAs considered to provide the IT Service Desk Support service to USDA. However, the central nonprofit agency (CNA) that is required to propose projects, along with qualified and capable NPAs to perform the projects, to the Committee for Procurement List (PL) consideration, did not recommend the home-based NPA to perform the subject service. The home-based NPA’s comments focused on the CNA’s procedures for evaluating its NPAs when making recommendations to the Committee of suitable projects for the government to procure from qualified nonprofit agencies. The home-based NPA asserts the CNA’s evaluation of its NPA and the subsequent recommendation were flawed since the CNA did not consider which NPA would maximize employment for people with severe disabilities. The home-based NPA also states that the CNA recommendation is not sufficient to support a government contract award decision and the review and recommendation was based on stale information that did not include the fact that the home-based NPA is currently performing these services for USDA. The home-based NPA also stated that it appealed the CNA recommendation through program channels; however, the appeal was not properly evaluated by the CNA and Committee staff. Therefore, the home-based NPA asserts that the recommendation should not be relied upon by the Committee. The Javits-Wagner-O’Day (JWOD) Act authorized the Committee to establish rules and regulations to administer the AbilityOne Program and directs the Committee to designate CNAs to assist in the program. Committee regulations require the CNAs to evaluate the qualifications and capabilities of the NPAs they represent in the AbilityOne Program. Committee regulations and E:\FR\FM\15AUN1.SGM 15AUN1
