SUMMARY: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES United States Mint VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Dec 21, 2015 Jkt 238001 PO 00000 Frm 00099 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 79653 Telephone: 202–461–6688 (this is not a toll-free number). Section 2306(e)(3) and (4) of title 38, United States Code authorizes VA to provide a monetary allowance for the private purchase of an outer burial receptacle for use in a VA national cemetery where its use is authorized. The allowance for qualified interments that occur during calendar year 2016 is the average cost of Government-furnished grave liners in fiscal year 2015, less the administrative costs incurred by VA in calendar year 2015 in processing and paying the allowance in lieu of the Governmentfurnished grave liner. The average cost of Governmentfurnished grave liners is determined by taking VA’s total cost during a fiscal year for single-depth grave liners that were procured for placement at the time of interment and dividing it by the total number of such grave liners procured by VA during that fiscal year. The calculation excludes both grave liners procured and pre-placed in gravesites as part of cemetery gravesite development projects and all double-depth grave liners. Using this method of computation, the average cost was determined to be $331.00 for fiscal year 2015. The administrative costs incurred by VA consist of those costs that relate to processing and paying an allowance in lieu of providing the Governmentfurnished grave liner. These costs have been determined to be $9.00 for calendar year 2016 allowances. The allowance payable for qualifying interments occurring during calendar year 2016, therefore, is $322.00.
