FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Susan Herre, Transportation Industry Analyst, Office of Program Delivery, Federal Railroad Administration, (202) 631–1825. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FRA developed this guidance document on capital cost estimating for project sponsors and the industry as part of its continuing efforts to provide technical assistance and ensure successful project delivery. FRA’s guidance emphasizes accuracy, comprehensiveness, and completeness of estimating materials, as well as credibility. These are all qualities highlighted by the U.S. Government Accountability Office (GAO) in its own capital cost estimating guidance, which describes the same primary capital cost estimating methodologies and activities as stated in this document. FRA’s guidance focuses specifically on railroad projects; it provides examples of common estimating shortfalls in railroad projects; and it defines agency-specific requirements for project sponsors regarding format and submission of cost estimate-related materials. FRA recognizes that it is not always easy to persuade stakeholders and funders of a project’s merit, or to withstand criticism for capital costs that seem ‘‘too high’’ and schedules that seem ‘‘too long.’’ The pressures associated with project development and implementation can be immense. GAO recognized these pressures when it stated, ‘‘many organizations are not mature enough to acknowledge . . . cost risk realism because of the possible VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:08 Jul 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 repercussions [and] . . . fear that the program could be canceled.’’ With this in mind, FRA’s guidance asserts that true or ‘‘non-depressed’’ costs can get funded, and reminds us that delivering projects ‘‘as promised’’ increases industry credibility. By following FRA’s guidance, project sponsors should be better able to compensate for uncertainties, unforeseen conditions, and unknowns in capital cost estimates. Such should improve estimate reliability, and enable as-built costs to land within a reasonable range of the estimates generated at every project phase. With a consistent estimating approach, project sponsors should be better able to make useful comparisons among estimates, and to evaluate their own estimates. This guidance will be incorporated by reference into FRA’s Notices of Funding Availability/Opportunity and grant and loan agreements. FRA expects project sponsors to adhere to this guidance, and the principles and methods described herein. Privacy Act FRA wishes to inform all interested parties that anyone is able to search the electronic form of any written communications and comments received into any of our dockets by the name of the individual submitting the comment (or signing the comment, if submitted on behalf of an association, business, labor union, etc.).

National Credit Union Administration (NCUA) joined the Agencies in issuing the Policy Statement. However, the NCUA did not join the request for approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of the information collection contained in the Policy Statement as it submitted a separate request for PRA approval. 2 The E:\FR\FM\13JYN1.SGM 13JYN1
