Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Committee, 61038 [2017-27681]

Download as PDF 61038 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 246 / Tuesday, December 26, 2017 / Notices countries are Burkina Faso, Mongolia, Senegal, Sri Lanka, and Tunisia. The Board reselected these countries based on their continued or improved policy performance since their prior selection. Lesotho, which had originally been selected for compact assistance for FY 2014, received vote deferrals for reselection in FY 2016 and FY 2017. Due to positive actions taken by the Government of Lesotho this year, the Board has once again selected the country for compact assistance for FY 2018. Countries Selected To Receive Threshold Program Assistance The Board selected The Gambia to receive threshold program assistance. The Gambia: The Gambia offers MCC the opportunity to support the government as it continues its democratic transition following the inauguration of its new president in early 2017 and successful legislative elections in April 2017. While it has historically struggled to pass the MCC scorecard due to its performance on the democratic rights hard hurdle, the recent transition and reforms being pursued suggest the country will see strong improvements on these indicators in the coming years. The Gambia meets 12 of 20 indicators overall on the scorecard and demonstrates good performance on the control of corruption indicator. Ongoing Review of Partner Countries’ Policy Performance The Board emphasized the need for all partner countries to maintain or improve their policy performance. If it is determined during compact implementation that a country has demonstrated a significant policy reversal, MCC can hold it accountable by applying MCC’s Suspension and Termination Policy.4 [FR Doc. 2017–27876 Filed 12–21–17; 4:15 pm] BILLING CODE 9211–03–P NATIONAL ARCHIVES AND RECORDS ADMINISTRATION Office of Government Information Services ethrower on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES [NARA–2018–011] Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Advisory Committee Office of Government Information Services (OGIS), National AGENCY: 4 Available at https://www.mcc.gov/resources/ doc/policy-on-suspension-and-termination.
