The purpose of this notice is to allow an additional thirty (30) days for public comments to be submitted.

Abstract (Needs and Uses): The information provided in the OPIC–129 is used by OPIC as a part of the Character Risk Due Diligence/ background check procedure (similar to a commercial bank’s Know Your Customer procedure) that it performs on each party that has a significant relationship (10% or more beneficial ownership, provision of significant credit support, significant managerial relationship) to the projects that OPIC finances. The threshold has been changed from 5% to 10% in order to make OPIC’s due diligence process more efficient and less resource intensive without significantly increasing the reputational and project risks associated with OPIC transactions.

global change impacts and vulnerabilities. The recent Third NCA process 
and resulting 2014 Report (http://nca2014.globalchange.gov/) provide a 
foundation for subsequent activities and reports under the sustained

involve participation and leadership by state, local, and tribal 
governments as well as the private sector. Noting these developments in 
the climate assessment landscape, USGCRP seeks ideas about (1) what 
scientific information on climate change, impacts, and responses would 
be of most value to inform future assessment activities; (2) how to 
effectively communicate climate change assessment information; and (3) 
what mechanisms could be used to more effectively connect to other 
assessment-related efforts. Public responses to these questions will be 
evaluated and, if appropriate, used to inform the structure and content 
of USGCRP's sustained National Climate Assessment process. Updates on 
the sustained assessment will be posted on the NCA Web site (http://assessment.globalchange.gov) as they are available.
