Notice and Request for Comments on the National Science Foundation (NSF) Implementation of Proposed NSF Management Fee Policy. AGENCY: ACTION: The payment of a small but appropriate management fee has been a long standing practice at the National Science Foundation (NSF) in limited circumstances related to the construction and operation of major facility projects. NSF is strengthening both the criteria used to establish such management fees and the controls that may be necessary to ensure that uses of fees are consistent with those established criteria. These efforts have resulted in a revised policy that we are providing here for public comment. DATES: Comments on the proposed NSF Management Fee are welcome before February 13, 2015. Comments will be useful in shaping the agency’s implementation. All comments received before the close of the comment period will be available for public inspection, including any personally identifiable or confidential business information that is included. Because they will be made public, comments should not include any sensitive information. Please send written comments regarding the management fee policy to Suzanne Plimpton, Reports Clearance Officer, National Science Foundation, 4201 Wilson Blvd., Rm. 1265, Arlington, VA 22230, or by email to splimpto@nsf.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Suzanne Plimpton on (703) 292–7556 or send email to splimpto@nsf.gov. Individuals who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1–800–877– 8339, which is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year (including federal holidays). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The following proposed NSF Management SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 78497 Fee Policy can be found in the NSF Large Facilities Manual: Section 4.2.2.2 Management Fee Management fee is an amount of money paid to a recipient in excess of a cooperative agreement’s or cooperative support agreement’s allowable costs. Generally, NSF does not pay profit or fee to organizations under financial assistance, except for the specific exception of profits to commercial organizations performing Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) or Small Business Technology Transfer (SBTR) work. However, a management fee may be authorized for awards to non-profit organizations in the limited circumstance of construction or operation of a large facility under an NSF assistance award when the organization has limited or no other financial resources to cover certain ordinary and necessary business expenses that may not be reimbursable under the governing cost principles. When requested and justified by an awardee and subsequently authorized by NSF, management fee will be paid once negotiated by the NSF Grants and Agreements Officer. Any amount negotiated shall be expressly set forth in the terms and conditions of the award. NSF recognizes the following criteria for the negotiation and award of management fee: • Working capital necessary to fund operations under an award • Facilities capital necessary to acquire assets for performance • Amounts for other expenses that are ordinary and necessary for business operations but that are not otherwise reimbursable under the governing cost principles Amounts for working capital may be necessary to ensure a level of retained earnings available to the organization in order to secure credit and borrowing to assure the financial health of the organization. An amount for facilities capital may be necessary to allow the organization to acquire major assets and to address expenses that require immediate substantive financial outlays but that are only reimbursed through depreciation or amortization over a period of years. Amounts for other expenses that are ordinary and necessary but not otherwise reimbursable can provide a reasonable allowance for management initiative and investments that will directly or indirectly benefit NSF. Examples of potential appropriate needs include contract terminations and losses, certain appropriate educational and public outreach activities, and providing financial incentives to obtain and retain high caliber staff.

Determinations Terminating Investigations of Petitions for Worker 
Adjustment Assistance

    After notice of the petitions was published in the Federal Register 
and on the Department's Web site, as required by section 221 of the Act 
(19 U.S.C. 2271), the Department initiated investigations of these 
petitions.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioner has requested that the petition be withdrawn.
85,675, Hewlett Packard Company, Corvallis, Oregon.
85,690, Apex Tool Group, LLC., Garland, Texas.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
in cases where these petitions were not filed in accordance with the 
requirements of 29 CFR 90.11. Every petition filed by workers must be 
signed by at least three individuals of the petitioning worker group. 
Petitioners separated more than one year prior to the date of the 
petition cannot be covered under a certification of a petition under 
section 223(b), and therefore, may not be part of a petitioning worker 
group. For one or more of these reasons, these petitions were deemed 
invalid.
85,673, Quantum Foods, Bolingbrook, Illinois.
85,681, Atmel Corporation, Colorado Springs, Colorado.
85,692, Honeywell, Canton, Massachusetts.
    The following determinations terminating investigations were issued 
because the petitioning groups of workers are covered by active 
certifications. Consequently, further investigation in these cases 
would serve no purpose since the petitioning group of workers cannot be 
covered by more than one certification at a time.
85,658, SMC Electrical Products, Inc., Delta, Colorado.
    I hereby certify that the aforementioned determinations were issued 
during the period of December 8, 2014 through December 12, 2014. These
