The public record for these investigations may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—The final phase of these investigations is being scheduled pursuant to sections 705(b) and 731(b) of the Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1671d(b) and 1673d(b)), as a result of an affirmative preliminary determination by the Department of Commerce that certain benefits which constitute subsidies within the meaning of section 703 of the Act (19 U.S.C. 1671b) are being provided to manufacturers, producers, or exporters in China of ammonium sulfate.1 The investigations were requested in petitions filed on May 25, 2016, by Pasadena Commodities International, Nitrogen LLC (Pasadena, Texas). For further information concerning the conduct of this phase of the investigations, hearing procedures, and rules of general application, consult the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure, part 201, subparts A and B (19 CFR part 201), and part 207, subparts A and C (19 CFR part 207). Participation in the investigations and public service list.—Persons, including industrial users of the subject merchandise and, if the merchandise is sold at the retail level, representative consumer organizations, wishing to participate in the final phase of these 1 For purposes of these investigations, the Department of Commerce has defined the subject merchandise as ammonium sulfate in all physical forms, with or without additives such as anti-caking agents. Ammonium sulfate, which may also be spelled as ammonium sulphate, has the chemical formula (NH4)2SO4. The scope includes ammonium sulfate that is combined with other products, including by, for example, blending (i.e., mixing granules of ammonium sulfate with granules of one or more other products), compounding (i.e., when ammonium sulfate is compacted with one or more other products under high pressure), or granulating (incorporating multiple products into granules through, e.g., a slurry process). For such combined products, only the ammonium sulfate component is covered by the scope of these investigations. Ammonium sulfate that has been combined with other products is included within the scope regardless of whether the combining occurs in countries other than China. Ammonium sulfate that is otherwise subject to these investigations is not excluded when commingled (i.e., mixed or combined) with ammonium sulfate from sources not subject to these investigations. Only the subject component of such commingled products is covered by the scope of these investigations. The Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) registry number for ammonium sulfate is 7783–20–2. The merchandise covered by these investigations is currently classifiable under Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTSUS) subheading 3102.21.0000. Although this HTSUS subheading and CAS registry number are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of these investigations is dispositive.

The Secretary will maintain a public service list containing the names and addresses of all persons, or their representatives, who are parties to the investigations.

Authorized applicants must represent interested parties, as defined by 19 U.S.C. 1677(9), who are parties to the investigations. A party granted access to BPI in the preliminary phase of the investigations need not reapply for such access. A separate service list will be maintained by the Secretary for those parties authorized to receive BPI under the APO. Staff report.—The prehearing staff report in the final phase of these investigations will be placed in the nonpublic record on December 28, 2016, and a public version will be issued thereafter, pursuant to section 207.22 of the Commission’s rules.

Sole-Source Concession Contract for Lake Mead National Recreation 
Area

AGENCY: National Park Service, Interior.

ACTION: Notice of proposed award of sole-source concession contract for 
Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: Public notice is hereby given that the National Park Service 
proposes to award a sole-source concession contract for the conduct of 
certain visitor services within Lake Mead National Recreation Area 
(Lake Mead NRA) for a term not to exceed five (5) years. The visitor 
services include the provision of wireless Internet access within 
remote but developed areas of Lake Mead NRA.

DATES: The term of the sole-source concession contract will commence 
(if awarded) no earlier than sixty (60) days from the publication of 
this notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Director of the National Park Service 
(NPS) may award a concession contract non-competitively upon a 
determination that extraordinary circumstances exist under which 
compelling and equitable considerations require the award of the 
concession contract to a particular qualified person in the public 
interest (36 CFR 51.25). Contracts that are awarded non-competitively 
pursuant to 36 CFR 51.25 are commonly referred to as ``sole-source'' 
contracts.
    The NPS has determined that BladeBeam, Inc. is a ``qualified 
person'' as defined by 36 CFR 51.3, and has determined that compelling 
and equitable considerations exist because of the difficulty of 
providing wireless Internet in the remote but developed areas of Lake 
Mead NRA, and because BladeBeam, Inc. is willing to make a significant 
investment with no guaranteed return.

[[Page 78631]]

    The NPS has determined that a sole-source concession contract is in 
the public interest because it is the authorization most likely to 
allow a pilot test of providing wireless Internet services in remote 
but developed areas of Lake Mead NRA.
    This is not a request for proposals. The NPS is seeking approval 
from the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary for Fish and Wildlife and 
Parks contemporaneously.

    Dated: October 20, 2016.

Deputy Director, National Park Service.
