DATES: August 30, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Mary Kolberg at (202) 482–1785, AD/ CVD Operations, Office I, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 1401 Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: AGENCY: mstockstill on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES Background On July 12, 2017, the Department of Commerce (Department) initiated a countervailing duty investigation on ripe olives from Spain.1 Currently, the preliminary determination is due no later than September 15, 2017. Postponement of the Preliminary Determination Section 703(b)(1) of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended (the Act), requires the Department to issue the preliminary determination in a countervailing duty investigation within 65 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation. However, section 703(c)(1) of the Act permits the Department to postpone the preliminary determination until no later than 130 days after the date on which the Department initiated the investigation 1 See Ripe Olives from Spain: Initiation of Countervailing Duty Investigation, 82 FR 33050 (July 19, 2017). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:40 Aug 29, 2017 Jkt 241001 if: (A) The petitioner 2 makes a timely request for a postponement; or (B) the Department concludes that the parties concerned are cooperating, that the investigation is extraordinarily complicated, and that additional time is necessary to make a preliminary determination. Under 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner must submit a request for postponement 25 days or more before the scheduled date of the preliminary determination and must state the reasons for the request. The Department will grant the request unless it finds compelling reasons to deny the request. On August 7, 2017, the petitioner submitted a timely request that we postpone the preliminary CVD determination.3 The petitioner stated that it requests postponement because the Department continues to gather ‘‘questionnaire responses from the Government of Spain, the European Union, and the mandatory respondents in this investigation. Thus, extra time is needed to permit the Department . . . to analyze fully the questionnaire responses, request any necessary clarifications, and determine the extent to which countervailable subsidies have been bestowed on the respondents.’’ 4 In accordance with 19 CFR 351.205(e), the petitioner has stated the reasons for requesting a postponement of the preliminary determination, and the Department finds no compelling reason to deny the request. Therefore, pursuant to section 703(c)(1)(A) of the Act, we are extending the due date for the preliminary determination to no later than 130 days after the date on which this investigation was initiated, i.e., to 2 In this investigation, the petitioner is the Coalition for Fair Trade in Ripe Olives and its individual members, Bell-Carter Foods, Inc. and Musco Family Olive Co. 3 See Letter from the petitioner, ‘‘Ripe Olives from Spain—Request for Postponement of Preliminary Determination’’ (August 7, 2017). 4 Id.

This notice is issued and published pursuant to section 703(c)(2) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.205(f)(l). Dated: August 24, 2017.

Background

    The Cloud Computing Roadmap is being used industry-wide to advance 
the rapid adoption of cloud computing. Two of the 10 requirements 
(numbers 5 and 8) in the Cloud Computing Roadmap point to the next 
generation of cloud computing which will be focused on the concept of 
federated clouds. Federated clouds represent a future where there is 
seamless integration between multiple cloud service providers. 
Fulfilling this vision of the future of cloud computing will require a 
foundational effort to understand all the technological and standards-
based obstacles that will need to be addressed to build the necessary 
underlying architecture.

Scope

    The scope of the project is to fully understand and describe the 
elements of federated cloud computing. This will involve developing and 
gaining consensus on a common federated cloud computing vocabulary, as 
well as developing an underlying conceptual model of what federated 
cloud computing is, its major components, and users/stakeholders. The 
Working Group will then use that conceptual model to map out an 
implementation strategy including a gap analysis to identify the 
missing technologies and standards needed to cultivate a seamless 
system of systems. The anticipated results are:
     Federated Cloud Computing Vocabulary;
     Conceptual Model of Federated Clouds; and
     Technology Gap Analysis.
    The Working Group will also investigate and identify the needed 
technologies, tools, and standards to enable these environments. They 
will use material from NIST's Cloud Computing Reference Architecture 
(NIST SP 500-292) and materials located at the group's public twiki 
site: http://collaborate.nist.gov/twiki-cloud-computing/bin/view/CloudComputing/RATax_FedCommunity.
    The Working Group will work in a coordinated effort with the IEEE 
ICWG/2302 WG--Intercloud Working Group to produce an implementation of 
this reference material and create a compliant technical standard. A

Computing Working Groups is interrelated, and this Working Group will
