SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Introduction With this notice, we continue the CCP process for the Refuges. We started this process by publishing a notice in the Federal Register on June 8, 2011 (76 FR 33339). For more information about the Refuges, see that notice. Background The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966, 16 U.S.C. 668dd–668ee (Refuge Administration Act), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, requires us to develop a CCP for each national wildlife refuge. The purpose for developing a CCP is to provide refuge managers with a 15-year plan for achieving refuge purposes and contributing toward the mission of the National Wildlife Refuge System, consistent with sound principles of fish and wildlife management, conservation, legal mandates, and our policies. In addition to outlining broad management direction on conserving wildlife and their habitats, CCPs identify wildlifedependent recreational opportunities available to the public, including opportunities for hunting, fishing, wildlife observation and photography, and environmental education and interpretation. We will review and update the CCP at least every 15 years in accordance with the Refuge Administration Act. asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Draft CCP/EA The draft CCP/EA includes detailed information about our planning process, the Refuges’ resources and issues, and our proposed management alternatives.

    The National Park Service (NPS), as delegated by the U.S. Office of

system for the competitive service''; sections 3301, 3302, and 9101 of 
Title 5, United States Code (U.S.C.); and parts 2, 5, 731, and 736 of 
Title 5, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), and Federal information 
processing standards. Section 1104 of Title 5 allows OPM to delegate 
personnel management functions to other Federal agencies.
    In line with new regulations mandated by the OPM and the Department

background investigations have published notices in the Federal
