John Maffei, Director (A), NextGen Portfolio Management and Technology Development. Background [FR Doc. 2016–18219 Filed 8–1–16; 8:45 am] SW., Washington, DC 20591; telephone (202) 267–7970; email: 9-ANG-AAtS@faa.gov. BILLING CODE 4910–13–P The FAA’s System Wide Information Management (SWIM) program is one of the transformational programs of the NextGen portfolio. SWIM utilizes a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) to exchange aviation data and services without the restrictive, time consuming and expensive process of developing unique interfaces for the numerous systems and equipment used by the National Airspace System (NAS). On November 17, 2014, the FAA hosted a public meeting for the Aircraft Access to System Wide Information Management (AAtS) Phase 2 Working Group to discuss the operational needs for a capability such as AAtS. AAtS is a technology agnostic concept demonstration effort conducted by the FAA to improve collaborative decision making by establishing the airborne component of the ground based SWIM. AAtS leverages rapidly growing air/ ground third party service providers’ infrastructure and technologies such as inflight Internet Protocol (IP) Data Link and Electronic Flight Bags (EFB) to exchange non-command and control/ safety critical information between pilots and other NAS users without new equipage mandates. To demonstrate feasibility and highlight the future potential of connecting aircraft to SWIM, the FAA developed prototype systems and applications in collaboration with industry partners and conducted live operational demonstrations with airline and business aircraft operators. The concept demonstrated by AAtS will help create a shared NAS picture and is expected to contribute to increased predictability, flexibility, and efficiency through collaborative decision making. The FAA will summarize the demonstrations at the August 16, 2016, meeting to conclude the AAtS Demonstration project. Registration To attend the meeting, participants must register via email by close of business day Tuesday, August 9, 2016. In accordance with security procedures, participants must provide the following information to 9-ANG-AAtS@faa.gov: Full Name, Company, Phone Number, and U.S. Citizen (Y/N).

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: This notice provides information regarding FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the obligation of Federal-aid funds for 49 State projects involving the acquisition of vehicles and equipment on the condition that they be assembled in the U.S. DATES: The effective date of the waiver is August 3, 2016. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For questions about this notice, please contact Mr. Gerald Yakowenko, FHWA Office of Program Administration, 202– 366–1562, or via email at mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:35 Aug 01, 2016 Jkt 238001 gerald.yakowenko@dot.gov. For legal questions, please contact Mr. William Winne, FHWA Office of the Chief Counsel, 202–366–1397, or via email at William.Winne@dot.gov. Office hours for the FHWA are from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., e.t., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Electronic Access An electronic copy of this document may be downloaded from the Federal Register’s home page at http:// www.archives.gov and the Government Printing Office’s database at http:// www.access.gpo.gov/nara. Background This notice provides information regarding FHWA’s finding that a Buy America waiver is appropriate for the obligation of Federal-aid funds for 49 State projects involving the acquisition of vehicles (including sedans, vans, pickups, trucks, buses, and street sweepers) and equipment (such as trail grooming equipment) on the condition that they be assembled in the U.S. The waiver would apply to approximately 196 vehicles and equipment acquisitions. The requests for the first quarter of calendar year 2016, available at http://www.fhwa.dot.gov/ construction/contracts/cmaq 160517.cfm, are incorporated by reference into this notice. These projects are being undertaken to implement air quality improvement, safety, and mobility goals under FHWA’s Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality Improvement Program and the Recreational Trails Program. Title 23, Code of Federal Regulations, section 635.410 requires that steel or iron materials (including protective coatings) that will be permanently incorporated in a Federal-aid project must be manufactured in the U.S. For FHWA, this means that all the processes that modified the chemical content, physical shape or size, or final finish of the material (from initial melting and mixing, continuing through the bending and coating) occurred in the U.S. The statute and regulations create a process for granting waivers from the Buy America requirements when its application would be inconsistent with the public interest or when satisfactory quality domestic steel and iron products are not sufficiently available. In 1983, FHWA determined that it was both in the public interest and consistent with the legislative intent to waive Buy America for manufactured products other than steel manufactured products. However, FHWA’s national waiver for manufactured products does not apply PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 50785 to the requests in this notice because they involve predominately steel and iron manufactured products. The FHWA’s Buy America requirements do not have special provisions for applying Buy America to ‘‘rolling stock’’ such as vehicles or vehicle components (see 49 U.S.C. 5323(j)(2)(C), 49 CFR 661.11, and 49 U.S.C. 24405(a)(2)(C) for examples of Buy America rolling stock provisions for other DOT agencies). Based on all the information available to the agency, FHWA concludes that there are no domestic manufacturers that produce the vehicles and vehicle components identified in this notice in such a way that their steel and iron elements are manufactured domestically. The FHWA’s Buy America requirements were tailored to the types of products that are typically used in highway construction, which generally meet the requirement that steel and iron materials be manufactured domestically. In today’s global industry, vehicles are assembled with iron and steel components that are manufactured all over the world. The FHWA is not aware of any domestically produced vehicle on the market that meets FHWA’s Buy America requirement to have all its iron and steel be manufactured exclusively in the U.S. For example, the Chevrolet Volt, which was identified by many commenters in a November 21, 2011, Federal Register Notice (76 FR 72027) as a car that is made in the U.S., is comprised of only 45 percent of U.S. and Canadian content according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Part 583 American Automobile Labeling Act Report Web page (http://www.nhtsa.gov/Laws+&+ Regulations/Part+583+American +Automobile+Labeling+Act+(AALA)+ Reports). Moreover, there is no indication of how much of this 45 percent content is U.S.-manufactured (from initial melting and mixing) iron and steel content. In accordance with Division K, section 122 of the ‘‘Consolidated and Further Continuing Appropriations Act, 2015’’ (Pub. L. 113–235), FHWA published a notice of intent to issue a waiver on its Web site at http:// www.fhwa.dot.gov/construction/ contracts/waivers.cfm?id=126 on May 17. The FHWA received no comments in response to the publication. Based on FHWA’s conclusion that there are no domestic manufacturers that can produce the vehicles and equipment identified in this notice in such a way that steel and iron materials are manufactured domestically, and after consideration of the comments received, FHWA finds that application of FHWA’s Buy America requirements E:\FR\FM\02AUN1.SGM 02AUN1
