Or, alternatively, please submit a new entry providing an update on how your company offers this service to consumers. II. Criteria To Be Included in the Update to This Public List asabaliauskas on DSKBBXCHB2PROD with NOTICES If your company is a credit card issuer, fits the criteria outlined below, and would like to be included in the updated list the Bureau plans to publish, contact us by following the instructions included in this Notice for submitting an entry.1 If your company is not a credit card issuer, but offers existing consumer customers free access to a credit score, fits the criteria outlined below, and would like to be included in a possible list for companies in other markets, you may contact us as well. Depending on the feedback received, the Bureau may decide to expand the scope of the initial list of companies offering free credit scores beyond credit card issuers to companies in some other markets, include such companies in a future separate list, or decide not to publish a list of companies in other markets offering this service. To be included in this list of credit card issuers, or in a possible list of companies in other markets, you must meet the following criteria: • Offer or provide a consumer financial product or service; • Offer existing customers 2 (at least some, but not necessarily all) the ability to obtain free of charge a credit score 3 that either your company or other lenders use for account origination, portfolio management, or for other business purposes; • Offer this access to a credit score on a continuous basis, as opposed to on a time-limited or promotional basis, and periodically update the score. You may include other information you think is relevant for consumers reading the public list to understand whether the service applies to them. The updated list will include a link to the comment your company submits— or a link to your company’s entry from 1 ‘‘Credit card issuer’’ refers to any entity to which a consumer is legally obligated, or would be legally obligated, under the terms of a credit card agreement. Alternatively, you can also be included in this list if you are a bank or a credit union and you contract with a third party to issue credit cards on your behalf and under your brand name. 2 ‘‘Customers’’ refers to individuals, not corporations or small businesses. 3 By ‘‘credit score’’ we refer to a score that is empirically derived, demonstrably and statistically sound, and based on current data from a consumer reporting agency to predict the likelihood of certain credit behavior for the applicant. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:38 Nov 09, 2017 Jkt 244001 last year, if you indicate that you would like last year’s submission to be included again. Consumers reading the list will be encouraged to check this information, or to contact each company, to find out which specific credit card or financial products are eligible for the service, and on what conditions, if any. By responding to this Federal Register Notice (FRN) you are stating that you meet the criteria and are consenting to include the name of your company in a public list of credit card issuers, or in a possible list of companies in other markets as applicable, offering free access to credit scores to their existing customers. The Bureau reserves the right to conduct due diligence on a company’s assertions about meeting the criteria stated in this notice. Your response to this FRN and inclusion in this public list are completely voluntary, and your choice to do so, or refrain from doing so, is not connected to supervisory activity by the Bureau. We emphasize that these lists will be created to further inform the public about where to find a credit score, and will not be an endorsement of the financial institutions, credit card issuers, or any other company mentioned in any document the Bureau publishes. Thank you for your contribution to improve consumer financial awareness. Dated: November 4, 2017. Richard Cordray, Director, Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection.

Abstract: The Teacher Education Assistance for College and Higher Education (TEACH) Grant program is a non-need-based grant program that provides up to $4,000 per year to students who are enrolled in an eligible program and who agree to teach in a high-need field, at a low-income elementary or secondary school for at least four years within eight years of completing the program for which the TEACH Grant was awarded. The TEACH Grant program regulations are required to ensure accountability of the program participants, both institutions and student recipients, for proper program administration, to determine eligibility to receive program benefits and to prevent fraud and abuse of program funds. The regulations include both record-keeping and reporting requirements. The record-keeping by the school allows for review of compliance with the regulation during on-site institutional reviews. The Department uses the required reporting to allow for close-out of institutions that are no longer participating or who lose eligibility to participate in the program. Dated: November 7, 2017.

The public meeting will begin at 1:00 p.m. and end at 3:00 p.m. Agenda details will be available prior to the meeting on the NETL Web site, https://www.netl.doe.gov/events/sco2tech-group. Interested parties may RSVP, to confirm their participation and receive login instructions, by emailing Seth.Lawson@netl.doe.gov. The objective of the Supercritical CO2 Oxy-combustion Technology Group is to promote a technical understanding of oxy-combustion for direct-fired sCO2 power cycles by sharing information or viewpoints from individual participants regarding risk reduction and challenges associated with developing the technology. Oxy-combustion systems in directly heated supercritical CO2 (SCO2) power cycles utilize natural gas or syngas oxycombustion systems to produce a high temperature SCO2 working fluid and have the potential to be efficient, cost effective and well-suited for carbon dioxide (CO2) capture. To realize the benefits of direct fired SCO2 power cycles, the following challenges must be addressed: Chemical kinetic uncertainties, combustion instability, flowpath design, thermal management, pressure containment, definition/ prediction of turbine inlet conditions, ignition, off-design operation, transient capabilities, in-situ flame monitoring, and modeling, among others. The format of the meeting will facilitate equal opportunity for discussion among all participants; all participants will be welcome to speak. Following a detailed presentation by one volunteer participant regarding lessons learned from his or her area of research, other participants will be provided the opportunity to briefly share lessons learned from their own research. Meetings are expected to take place every other month with a different volunteer presenting at each meeting. Meeting minutes shall be published for those who are unable to attend.
