SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Civil Rights Compliance Review Record—Federally Assisted Programs OMB Number: 0596–0215 Type of Request: Extension with no change Abstract: All Federal agencies must comply with equal opportunity laws: • Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; • Title IX of the Education Amendments Act of 1972; • The Age Discrimination Act of 1975, as amended; • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended; and • Executive orders prohibiting discrimination in the delivery of all programs and services to the public. Federal agencies and entities receiving Federal financial assistance are prohibited from discriminating. Federal financial assistance is defined as, ‘‘Federal monies given by grants, cooperative agreements, commercial special use permits, training, loan/ temporary assignment of Federal personnel, or loan/use of Federal property at below market value.’’ The equal opportunity laws require agencies to conduct compliance reviews to ensure that entities receiving Federal Financial Assistance from the government are adhering to the nondiscrimination statutes. The statutes require that prior to awarding support or issuing permits, the Federal government shall conduct pre-award reviews to ensure that potential recipients understand their responsibilities to provide services equitable pursuant to the law. Thereafter, during the partnership with the Agency, on-going monitoring will take place to ensure the public is being served without any tkelley on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:14 Apr 03, 2015 Jkt 235001 barriers or discrimination. The compliance review tool consists of three forms, used consecutively during the same review. Forest Service employees will use form FS–1700–0006A, Civil Rights Compliance Review Record—Federally Assisted Programs, to collect information regarding actions taken by recipients of Federal financial assistance to ensure the public receives services without discrimination or barriers to access, and that recipients’ employees understand their role in ensuring equal access to services. Collection will occur during face-to-face meetings or telephone interviews conducted by Forest Service employees as part of the pre-award and Post-award process. The pre-award interview will take place prior to the award of a grant, signing of a cooperative agreement, letting of commercial special use permit, or similar activity. The post award interview will take place once every five years, or upon report/discovery of discrimination. Forest Service employees will use form FS–1700–0006B, Civil Rights Compliance Review Record—Federally Assisted Programs, (Post-Award Review Interview of an Employee of the Recipient) to collect information from an employee of the recipient’s program to assess their awareness of Civil Rights responsibilities to ensure the public receives services without discrimination or barriers to access. This aids in determining if recipients’ have advised and trained employees of their customer service and Civil Rights compliance role. Collection will occur during faceto-face meetings or interviews conducted by Forest Service employees as part of the post award process. The Post-award interview will take place once every five years, or upon report/ discovery of discrimination. Forest Service employees will use form FS–1700–0006C, Civil Rights Compliance Review Record—Federally Assisted Programs, (Post-Award Review Interview of a Participant) to collect information from the public or customers of the recipients of Federal financial assistance to determine if the public is receiving services without discrimination or barriers to access. Collection will occur during face-to-face interviews conducted by Forest Service employees as part of the post award process. The Post-award interview will take place once every five years, or upon report/discovery of discrimination. The information collected will only be shared with other Federal agencies who share in the financial assistance activities with the Forest Service. Monitoring reviews have been a PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 responsibility of the Federal government since 1964. Without the ability to monitor recipients of Federal financial assistance, the Forest Service would not be able to ensure compliance with laws and statutes. The Agency would not be aware of potential violations, thereby resulting in potential discriminatory practices. Estimate of Annual Burden: 1 hour. Type of Respondents: Recipients of Federal financial assistance. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 11,000. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: One. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 11,000. Comment is invited on: (1) Whether this collection of information is necessary for the stated purposes and the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical or scientific utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including the use of automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments received in response to this notice, including names and addresses when provided, will be a matter of public record. Comments will be summarized and included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval. Dated: March 27, 2015. Robert Velasco II, Associate Deputy Chief, Business Operations.

Assessment Rates

    Upon completion of this administrative review, the Department shall 
determine and U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) shall assess 
antidumping duties on all appropriate entries. If a respondent's 
weighted-average dumping margin is not zero or de minimis (i.e., less 
than 0.5 percent) in the final results of this review, we will 
calculate importer-specific ad valorem assessment rates on the basis of 
the ratio of the total amount of dumping calculated for an importer's 
examined sales and the total entered value of such sales in accordance 
with 19 CFR 351.212(b)(1). Where an importer-specific ad valorem 
assessment rate is zero or de minimis, we will instruct CBP to 
liquidate the appropriate entries without regard to antidumping duties 
in accordance with 19 CFR 351.106(c)(2). If a respondent's weighted-
average dumping margin is zero or de minimis in the final results of 
this review, we will instruct CBP to liquidate the appropriate entries 
without regard to antidumping duties in accordance with the Final 
Modification for Reviews.\6\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \6\ See Antidumping Proceedings: Calculation of the Weighted-
Average Dumping Margin and Assessment Rate in Certain Antidumping 
Proceedings: Final Modification, 77 FR 8101, 8102 (February 14, 
2012) (Final Modification for Reviews) (``Where the weighted-average 
margin of dumping for the exporter is determined to be zero or de 
minimis, no antidumping duties will be assessed.'').
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    The Department clarified its ``automatic assessment'' regulation on 
May 6, 2003.\7\ This clarification applies to entries of subject 
merchandise during the POR produced by a respondent for which it did 
not know its merchandise was destined for the United States. In such 
instances, we will instruct CBP to liquidate unreviewed entries at the 
all-others rate if there is no rate for the intermediate company(ies) 
involved in the transaction.

    We intend to issue instructions to CBP 15 days after publication of 
the final results of this review.

Notification to Importers

    This notice also serves as a preliminary reminder to importers of 
their responsibility under 19 CFR 351.402(f) to file a certificate 
regarding the reimbursement of antidumping duties prior to liquidation 
of the relevant entries during this review period. Failure to comply 
with this requirement could result in the Department's presumption that 
reimbursement of antidumping duties occurred and the subsequent 
assessment of doubled antidumping duties.

Notification to Interested Parties

    These preliminary results of administrative review are issued and 
published in accordance with sections 751(a)(1) and 777(i)(1) of the 
Act.

    Dated: March 30, 2015.
Paul Piquado,
Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance.
