SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Since the Administration's Strategy for the Management and Disposal 
of Used Nuclear Fuel and High-Level Radioactive Waste was issued, PIs 
for interim storage facilities that could provide DOE or utilities with 
consolidated SNF interim storage services are in various stages of 
development. PIs, although were not envisioned in the Administration's 
Strategy, represent a potentially promising alternative to federal 
facilities for consolidated interim storage. The RFI seeks input on key 
questions related to the role PFIs could play in an integrated waste 
management system. The RFI is available on the DOE-NE Web site at: 
www.energy.gov/ne/downloads/Private-ISF.
    The DOE Office of Nuclear Energy invites all interested parties to 
submit in writing by January 27, 2017, comments and information on 
matters addressed in the notice.
