EPA values and welcomes diversity. In an effort to obtain nominations of diverse candidates, the Agency encourages nominations of women and men of all racial and ethnic groups. All candidates will be considered and screened against the criteria listed below as well as EPA’s Conflict of Interest (COI) and appearance of bias guidance (http:// www.epa.gov/peerreview/pdfs/spc_ peer_rvw_handbook_addendum.pdf and http://www.epa.gov/osa/pdfs/epaprocess-for-contractor.pdf). Currently there is one IT expert position available to be filled on the Board. The other positions have already been filled pursuant to EPA’s request for nominations that was previously published in the Federal Register (80 FR 8643, February 18, 2015). IT nominees should have core competencies and experience in large scale systems and application development and integration, deployment and maintenance, user help desk and support, and expertise relevant to support the complexity of an eManifest system. Examples of this expertise may include but are not limited to: Expertise with web-based and mobile technologies, particularly that support large scale operations for geographically diverse users; expertise in IT security, including perspective on federal IT security requirements; expertise in electronic signature and user management approaches; expertise with scalable hosting solutions such as cloud-based hosting; and expertise in user experience. Existing knowledge of, or willingness to gain an understanding of EPA shared services and enterprise architecture is a plus as is experience in setting and managing fee-based systems in general. Additional criteria used to evaluate nominees include: • Excellent interpersonal, oral, and written communication skills; • Demonstrated experience developing group recommendations; • Willingness to commit time to the Board and demonstrated ability to work constructively on committees; • Absence of financial conflicts of interest; • Impartiality (including the appearance of impartiality); and • Background and experiences that would help members contribute to the diversity of perspectives on the Board, e.g., geographic, economic, social, cultural, educational backgrounds, professional affiliations, and other considerations. Nominations must include a resume, which provides the nominee’s VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:44 Jul 27, 2016 Jkt 238001 background, experience and educational qualifications, as well as a brief statement (one page or less) describing the nominee’s interest in serving on the Board and addressing the other criteria previously described. Nominees are encouraged to provide any additional information that they believe would be useful for consideration, such as: Availability to participate as a member of the Board; how the nominee’s background, skills and experience would contribute to the diversity of the Board; and any concerns the nominee has regarding membership. Nominees should be identified by name, occupation, position, current business address, email, and telephone number. Interested candidates may selfnominate. The Agency will acknowledge receipt of nominations. The person selected for membership will receive compensation for travel and a nominal daily compensation (if appropriate) while attending meetings. Additionally, the selected candidate will be designated as a Special Government Employee (SGE) or consultant. Candidates designated as SGEs are required to fill out the ‘‘Confidential Financial Disclosure Form for Environmental Protection Agency Special Government Employees’’ (EPA Form 3310–48). This confidential form provides information to EPA ethics officials to determine whether there is a conflict between the SGE’s public duties and their private interests, including an appearance of a loss of impartiality as defined by federal laws and regulations. One example of a potential conflict of interest may be for IT professional(s) serving in an organization that is awarded any related e-Manifest system development contract(s). Dated: July 15, 2016.
