Download as PDF 27462 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 88 / Friday, May 6, 2016 / Notices which are indicative of a possible deliberate attempt to disrupt pipeline operations or activities that could be precursors to such an attempt. In executing its responsibility for pipeline security, TSA produced the Pipeline Security Guidelines initially in December 2010, and reissued them in April 2011 when DHS changed the old color coded threat levels to the new National Terrorism Advisory System (NTAS) scale. The Pipeline Security Guidelines encourage pipeline operators to notify the Transportation Security Operations Center (TSOC) via phone at 866–615–5150 or email at TSOC.ST@ dhs.gov as soon as possible of any specified incidents as outlined in the Security Guidelines. In addition to security incident reporting, the Pipeline Security Guidelines previously included collecting pipeline operator security manager contact information to TSA. See 74 FR 37723 (July 29, 2009) and 75 FR 49943 (Aug. 16, 2010). TSA is revising the collection of information and will no longer collect the security manager contact information because a consolidated listing of contact information for pipeline industry security managers has been created and is available for use as recommended by the Pipeline Security Guidelines; however, the agency will continue to collect information on the reporting of security incident data to TSOC. Number of Respondents: 60.1 Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 30 hours annually. Dated: May 2, 2016. Christina A.

Properties reviewed are listed in this Notice according to the following categories: Suitable/available, suitable/ unavailable, and suitable/to be excess, and unsuitable. The properties listed in the three suitable categories have been reviewed by the landholding agencies, and each agency has transmitted to HUD: (1) Its intention to make the property available for use to assist the homeless, (2) its intention to declare the property excess to the agency’s needs, or (3) a statement of the reasons that the property cannot be declared excess or made available for use as facilities to assist the homeless. Properties listed as suitable/available will be available exclusively for homeless use for a period of 60 days from the date of this Notice. Where property is described as for ‘‘off-site use only’’ recipients of the property will be required to relocate the building to their own site at their own expense.

Ritta, Chief Real Property Branch, the Department of Health and Human Services, Room 5B–17, Parklawn Building, 5600 Fishers Lane, Rockville, MD 20857, (301) 443–2265 (This is not a toll-free number.)

For complete details concerning the processing of applications, the reader is encouraged to refer to the interim rule governing this program, 24 CFR part 581. For properties listed as suitable/to be excess, that property may, if subsequently accepted as excess by GSA, be made available for use by the homeless in accordance with applicable PO 00000 Frm 00077 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 27463 law, subject to screening for other Federal use. At the appropriate time, HUD will publish the property in a Notice showing it as either suitable/ available or suitable/unavailable. For properties listed as suitable/ unavailable, the landholding agency has decided that the property cannot be declared excess or made available for use to assist the homeless, and the property will not be available. Properties listed as unsuitable will not be made available for any other purpose for 20 days from the date of this Notice. Homeless assistance providers interested in a review by HUD of the determination of unsuitability should call the toll free information line at 1– 800–927–7588 for detailed instructions or write a letter to Ann Marie Oliva at the address listed at the beginning of this Notice.
