This notice is published as part of the National Park Service’s administrative responsibilities under NAGPRA, 25 U.S.C. 3003(d)(3). The determinations in this notice are the sole responsibility of the museum, institution, or Federal agency that has control of the Native American cultural items. The National Park Service is not responsible for the determinations in this notice. History and Description of the Cultural Items In 1963, 85 cultural items were removed from the gravesite of Stumbling Bear who was interred at the Saddle Mountain KCA Intertribal Cemetery in Kiowa County, OK. The remains of Stumbling Bear were exhumed and moved to Chief’s Knoll at the Fort Sill Post Cemetery, but the cultural items were not reinterred with the human remains. It is unknown when the cultural items were given to the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum. Stumbling Bear was a Kiowa chief who was born in 1830 and died on March 14, 1903. The 85 unassociated funerary objects are 21 wire bracelets, 1 metal disk, 17 metal bells, 19 metal buttons, 4 metal rings, 1 metal chain, 3 plastic beads, 1 plastic button, 17 metal horse trappings, and 1 coffin hardware. Determinations Made by the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum Officials of the Fort Sill National Historic Landmark and Museum have determined that: • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(3)(B), the 85 cultural items described in this notice are reasonably believed to have been placed with or near individual human remains at the time of death or later as part of the death rite or ceremony and are believed, by a preponderance of the evidence, to have been removed from a specific burial site of a Native American individual. • Pursuant to 25 U.S.C. 3001(2), there is a relationship of shared group identity that can be reasonably traced between the unassociated funerary objects and the Kiowa Indian Tribe of Oklahoma. Additional Requestors and Disposition Lineal descendants or representatives of any Indian tribe or Native Hawaiian organization not identified in this notice that wish to claim these cultural items PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 should submit a written request with information in support of the claim to Dr. Scott A.

The extraordinary circumstance in this instance was precipitated by Superstorm Sandy, which destroyed the water-based portion of the Great Kills Marina in October 2012, washing away the docks, slips, and a substantial number of pilings. The storm also caused severe damage to the bulkhead. The NPS requires the marina structures used under this contract to be temporary in nature, and that the concessioner coordinate closely with the NPS for construction of the temporary marina, a project which is already underway. These factors also contribute to the extraordinary circumstances that allow for a sole source concession contract. The NPS has determined that Marinas of the Future, Inc., is a ‘‘qualified person’’ as defined by 36 CFR 51.3, and has determined that compelling and equitable considerations exist with Marinas of the Future, Inc.’s funding for the construction project, its cooperation in coordinating the project, and its waiver of any potential leasehold surrender interest in the temporary marina. The NPS has determined that a sole source concession contract is in the public interest because it is the authorization most likely to allow interruption of visitor services to be avoided.

Sole Source Concession Contract for Gateway National Recreation 
Area, NY

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of proposed award of sole source concession contract for 
Gateway National Recreation Area.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Pursuant to 36 CFR 51.25, public notice is hereby given that 
the National Park Service proposes to award a sole source concession 
contract for the conduct of certain visitor services within Gateway 
National Recreation Area, New York for a term not to exceed 5 years. 
The visitor services include marina operations and dry storage for 
boats at Great Kills Marina. This action is necessary to avoid 
interruption of visitor services.

DATES: The term of the temporary concession contract will commence (if 
awarded) no earlier than 60 days from the publication of this notice.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jo A. Pendry, Acting Chief, NPS 
Commercial Services Program, 1201 Eye Street NW., 11th floor, 
Washington, DC 20005, Telephone (202) 513-7156.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Director of the National Park Service 
(NPS) may award a contract non-competitively (``Sole Source'' 
Contracts) upon a determination that extraordinary circumstances exist 
under which compelling and equitable considerations

[[Page 53783]]

require the award of the contract to a particular qualified person in 
the public interest (36 CFR 51.25).
    The extraordinary circumstance in this instance was precipitated by 
Superstorm Sandy, which destroyed the water-based portion of the Great 
Kills Marina in October 2012, washing away the docks, slips, and a 
substantial number of pilings. The storm also caused severe damage to 
the bulkhead. The NPS requires the marina structures used under this 
contract to be temporary in nature, and that the concessioner 
coordinate closely with the NPS for construction of the temporary 
marina, a project which is already underway. These factors also 
contribute to the extraordinary circumstances that allow for a sole 
source concession contract.
    The NPS has determined that Marinas of the Future, Inc., is a 
``qualified person'' as defined by 36 CFR 51.3, and has determined that 
compelling and equitable considerations exist with Marinas of the 
Future, Inc.'s funding for the construction project, its cooperation in 
coordinating the project, and its waiver of any potential leasehold 
surrender interest in the temporary marina.
    The NPS has determined that a sole source concession contract is in 
the public interest because it is the authorization most likely to 
allow interruption of visitor services to be avoided.
    This action is issued pursuant to 36 CFR 51.25. This is not a 
request for proposals.

    Dated: August 28, 2014.

Director, National Park Service.
