Review and Selection Process: We remind potential applicants that in reviewing applications in any discretionary grant competition, the Secretary may consider, under 34 CFR 75.217(d)(3), the past performance of the applicant in carrying out a previous award, such as the applicant’s use of funds, achievement of project objectives, and compliance with grant conditions. The Secretary may also consider whether the applicant failed to submit a timely performance report or submitted a report of unacceptable quality. In addition, in making a competitive grant award, the Secretary requires various assurances including those applicable to Federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination in programs or activities receiving Federal financial assistance from the Department (34 CFR 100.4, 104.5, 106.4, 108.8, and 110.23). For this competition, a panel of nonFederal readers will review each application in accordance with the selection criteria, consistent with 34 CFR 75.217. The individual scores of the reviewers will be added and the sum divided by the number of reviewers to determine the peer review score received in the review process. If there are insufficient funds for all applications with the same total scores, the Secretary will choose among the tied applications so as to serve geographical areas that have been underserved by the CCAMPIS Program.

Risk Assessment and Specific Conditions: Consistent with 2 CFR 200.205, before awarding grants under this competition the Department conducts a review of the risks posed by applicants. Under 2 CFR 3474.10, the Secretary may impose specific conditions and, in appropriate circumstances, high-risk conditions on a grant if the applicant or grantee is not financially stable; has a history of unsatisfactory performance; has a financial or other management system that does not meet the standards in 2 CFR part 200, subpart D; has not fulfilled the conditions of a prior grant; or is otherwise not responsible. 4. Integrity and Performance System: If you are selected under this competition to receive an award that over the course of the project period may exceed the simplified acquisition threshold (currently $150,000), under 2 CFR 200.205(a)(2) we must make a judgment about your integrity, business ethics, and record of performance under Federal awards—that is, the risk posed by you as an applicant—before we make an award. In doing so, we must consider any information about you that is in the integrity and performance system (currently referred to as the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System (FAPIIS)), accessible through the System for Award Management. You may review and comment on any information about yourself that a Federal agency previously entered and that is currently in FAPIIS. Please note that, if the total value of your currently active grants, cooperative agreements, and procurement contracts from the Federal Government exceeds $10,000,000, the reporting requirements in 2 CFR part 200, Appendix XII, require you to report certain integrity information to FAPIIS semiannually. Please review the requirements in 2 CFR part 200, Appendix XII, if this grant plus all the other Federal funds you receive exceed $10,000,000. VI. Award Administration Information 1. Award Notices: If your application is successful, we will notify your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators and send you a Grant Award Notification (GAN); or we may send you an email containing a link to access an electronic version of your GAN. We may notify you informally, also. If your application is not evaluated or not selected for funding, we will notify you. 2. Administrative and National Policy Requirements: We identify administrative and national policy requirements in the application package PO 00000 Frm 00013 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 28421 and reference these and other requirements in the Applicable Regulations section of this notice. We reference the regulations outlining the terms and conditions of an award in the Applicable Regulations section of this notice and include these and other specific conditions in the GAN. The GAN also incorporates your approved application as part of your binding commitments under the grant. 3. Open Licensing Requirements: Unless an exception applies, if you are awarded a grant under this competition, you will be required to openly license to the public grant deliverables created in whole, or in part, with Department grant funds. When the deliverable consists of modifications to pre-existing works, the license extends only to those modifications that can be separately identified and only to the extent that open licensing is permitted under the terms of any licenses or other legal restrictions on the use of pre-existing works. Additionally, a grantee or subgrantee that is awarded competitive grant funds must have a plan to disseminate these public grant deliverables. This dissemination plan can be developed and submitted after your application has been reviewed and selected for funding. For additional information on the open licensing requirements please refer to 2 CFR 3474.20. 4. Reporting: (a) If you apply for a grant under this competition, you must ensure that you have in place the necessary processes and systems to comply with the reporting requirements in 2 CFR part 170 should you receive funding under the competition. This does not apply if you have an exception under 2 CFR 170.110(b). (b) At the end of your project period, you must submit a final performance report, including financial information, as directed by the Secretary. If you receive a multiyear award, you must submit an annual performance report that provides the most current performance and financial expenditure information as directed by the Secretary under 34 CFR 75.118. The Secretary may also require more frequent performance reports under 34 CFR 75.720(c). For specific requirements on reporting, please go to www.ed.gov/ fund/grant/apply/appforms/ appforms.html. (c) Under 34 CFR 75.250(b), the Secretary may provide a grantee with additional funding for data collection analysis and reporting. In this case the Secretary establishes a data collection period. 5. Performance Measures: The success of the CCAMPIS Program will be E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1 28422 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 118 / Tuesday, June 19, 2018 / Notices daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES measured by the postsecondary persistence and degree of completion rates of the CCAMPIS Program participants that remain at the grantee institution. All CCAMPIS Program grantees will be required to submit an annual performance report documenting the persistence and degree attainment of their participants. Since students may take different lengths of time to complete their degrees, multiple years of performance report data are needed to determine the degree completion rates of CCAMPIS Program participants. The Department will aggregate the data provided in the annual performance reports from all grantees to determine the accomplishment level. 6. Continuation Awards: In making a continuation award under 34 CFR 75.253, the Secretary considers, among other things: Whether a grantee has made substantial progress in achieving the goals and objectives of the project; whether the grantee has expended funds in a manner that is consistent with its approved application and budget; and, if the Secretary has established performance measurement requirements, the performance targets in the grantee’s approved application. In making a continuation grant, the Secretary also considers whether the grantee is operating in compliance with the assurances in its approved application, including those applicable to Federal civil rights laws that prohibit discrimination in programs or activities receiving Federal financial assistance from the Department (34 CFR 100.4, 104.5, 106.4, 108.8, and 110.23).

ACTION: Notice of petition for waiver and grant of an interim waiver and request for comments. AGENCY: This document announces receipt of, and publishes a petition for waiver from, Jamison Door Company (‘‘Jamison’’), which seeks an exemption from specified portions of the U.S. Department of Energy (‘‘DOE’’) test procedure used for determining the energy consumption of walk-in cooler and walk-in freezer doors (collectively, ‘‘walk-in doors’’). Jamison seeks to use an alternate test procedure to address issues involved in testing the basic models identified in its petition. Jamison asserts in its petition that the percent time off (‘‘PTO’’) value specified in the test procedure for walk-in door motors is unrepresentative of actual performance and causes the test procedure to over-estimate the energy use of the motors used in a number of its walk-in door basic models. Accordingly, Jamison seeks to test and rate the basic models identified in its petition using an alternative PTO value for walk-in door motors.

I. Funding Opportunity Description

    Purpose of Program: The CCAMPIS Program supports the participation 
of low-income parents in postsecondary education through the provision 
of campus-based child care services.
    Priorities: This notice contains one absolute priority and one 
competitive preference priority. In accordance with

[[Page 28419]]

34 CFR 75.105(b)(2)(iv), the priorities are from section 419N(d) of the 
Higher Education Act of 1965, as amended (HEA) (20 U.S.C. 1070e(d)).
    Absolute Priority: For FY 2018 and any subsequent year in which we 
make awards from the list of unfunded applications from this 
competition, this priority is an absolute priority. Under 34 CFR 
75.105(c)(3) we consider only applications that meet this priority.
    This priority is:
    Projects that utilize a sliding fee scale for child care services 
provided under section 419N of the HEA in order to support a high 
number of low-income parents pursuing postsecondary education at the 
institution.
    Competitive Preference Priority: For FY 2018 and any subsequent 
year in which we make awards from the list of unfunded applications 
from this competition, this priority is a competitive preference 
priority. Under 34 CFR 75.105(c)(2)(i) we award up to an additional 5 
points to an application, depending on how well the application meets 
this priority.
    This priority is:
    Projects that leverage significant local or institutional 
resources, including in-kind contributions, to support the activities 
assisted under section 419N of the HEA.
    Requirements: An institution of higher education desiring a grant 
under this competition must submit an application that must--
    (1) Demonstrate that the institution is an eligible institution;
    (2) Specify the amount of funds requested;
    (3) Demonstrate the need of low-income students at the institution 
for campus-based child care services by including in the application--

    (E) other relevant data;
    (4) Contain a description of the activities to be assisted, 
including whether the grant funds will support an existing child care 
program or a new child care program;
    (5) Identify the resources, including technical expertise and 
financial support, the institution will draw upon to support the child 
care program and the participation of low-income students in the 
program, such as accessing social services funding, using student 
activity fees to help pay the costs of child care, using resources 
obtained by meeting the needs of parents who are not low-income 
students, and accessing foundation, corporate or other institutional 
support, and demonstrate that the use of the resources will not result 
in increases in student tuition;
    (6) Contain an assurance that the institution will meet the child 
care needs of low-income students through the provision of services, or 
through a contract for the provision of services;
    (7) Describe the extent to which the child care program will 
coordinate with the institution's early childhood education curriculum, 
to the extent the curriculum is available, to meet the needs of the 
students in the early childhood education program at the institution, 
and the needs of the parents and children participating in the child 
care program assisted under the applicant's project;
    (8) In the case of an institution seeking assistance for a new 
child care program--
    (A) provide a timeline, covering the period from receipt of the 
grant through the provision of the child care services, delineating the 
specific steps the institution will take to achieve the goal of 
providing low-income students with child care services;
    (B) specify any measures the institution will take to assist low-
income students with child care during the period before the 
institution provides child care services; and
    (C) include a plan for identifying resources needed for the child 
care services, including space in which to provide child care services, 
and technical assistance if necessary;
    (9) Contain an assurance that any child care facility assisted 
under this section will meet the applicable State or local government 
licensing, certification, approval, or registration requirements; and
    (10) Contain a plan for any child care facility assisted under this 
section to become accredited within three years of the date the 
institution first receives assistance under this section.

V. Application Review Information

    1. Selection Criteria: The selection criteria for this competition 
are from section 419N of the HEA and the Department's regulations at 34 
CFR 75.210 and are listed below.
    We will award up to 100 points to an application under the 
selection criteria and up to 5 additional points to an application 
under the competitive preference priority, for a total peer review 
score of up to 105 points. The maximum score for each criterion is 
indicated in parentheses, and the maximum score for each subcriterion 
is in the application package for this competition.
    (a) Need for the project. (30 points).
    In determining the need for the proposed project, the Secretary 
considers the extent to which the applicant demonstrates, in its 
application, the need for campus-based child care services for low-
income students at the institution by including the following (see 
section 419N(c)(3) of the HEA):
    (i) Information regarding student demographics.
    (ii) An assessment of child care capacity on or near campus.
    (iii) Information regarding the existence of waiting lists for 
existing child care.
    (iv) Information regarding additional needs created by 
concentrations of poverty or by geographic isolation.

the activities to be assisted, including whether the grant funds will 
support an existing child care program or a new child care program (see 
section 419N(c)(4) of the HEA).
    (ii) The extent to which the services to be provided by the 
proposed project are focused on those with the greatest needs (see 34 
CFR 75.210(d)(3)(xi)).

    Note:  For consistency in scoring applications, readers of 
applications will be instructed to include, in their assessment of 
focus on service of those with the greatest needs, the extent to 
which services are available during all hours that classes are in 
session, including evenings and weekends, to part-time students, and 
to students who need only emergency drop-in child care in the event 
that regularly scheduled child care is unexpectedly unavailable.

    (iii) The likely impact of the services to be provided by the 
proposed project on the intended recipients of those services (see 34 
CFR 75.210(d)(3)(iv)).
    (iv) Whether the application includes an assurance that the 
institution will meet the child care needs of low-income students 
through the provision of services, or through a contract for the 
provision of services (see section 419N(c)(6) of the HEA).
    (v) The extent to which the child care program will coordinate with 
the institution's early childhood education curriculum, to the extent 
the curriculum is available, to meet the needs of the students in the 
early childhood education program at the institution, and the needs of 
the parents and children participating in the child care program 
assisted under this section (see section 419N(c)(7) of the HEA).
    (vi) The extent to which the proposed project encourages parental 
involvement (see 34 CFR 75.210(c)(2)(xix)).
    (vii) If the applicant is requesting grant assistance for a new 
child care program (see section 419N(c)(8) of the HEA)--
    (1) Whether the applicant provides in its application a timeline, 
covering the period from receipt of the grant through the provision of 
the child care services, delineating the specific steps the institution 
will take to achieve the goal of providing low-income students with 
child care services;
    (2) The extent to which the applicant specifies in its application 
the measures the institution will take to assist low-income students 
with child care during the period before the institution provides child 
care services; and
    (3) The extent to which the application includes a plan for 
identifying resources needed for the child care services, including 
space in which to provide child care services and technical assistance 
if necessary.
    (c) Quality of management plan. (25 points).
    In determining the quality of the management plan for the proposed 
project, the Secretary considers the following:
    (i) The extent to which the application includes a management plan 
that describes the resources, including technical expertise and 
financial support, the institution will draw upon to support the child 
care program and the participation of low-income students in the 
program, such as accessing social services funding, using student 
activity fees to help pay the costs of child care, using resources 
obtained by meeting the needs of parents who are not low-income 
students, and accessing foundation, corporate or other institutional 
support, and demonstrates that the use of the resources will not result 
in increases in student tuition (see section 419N(c)(5) of the HEA).
    (ii) The qualifications, including relevant training and 
experience, of key project personnel (see 34 CFR 75.210(e)(3)(ii)).
    (iii) The adequacy of the management plan to achieve the objectives 
of the proposed project on time and within budget, including clearly 
defined responsibilities, timelines, and milestones for accomplishing 
project tasks (see 34 CFR 75.210(g)(2)(i)).
    (d) Quality of project evaluation. (15 points).
    In determining the quality of the project evaluation, the Secretary 
considers the following:

[[Page 28421]]

    (i) The extent to which the methods of evaluation are thorough, 
feasible, and appropriate to the goals, objectives, and outcomes of the 
proposed project (see 34 CFR 75.210(h)(2)(i)).
    (ii) The extent to which the methods of evaluation include the use 
of objective performance measures that are clearly related to the 
intended outcomes of the project and will produce quantitative and 
qualitative data to the extent possible (see 34 CFR 75.210(h)(2)(iv)).
    (iii) The extent to which the methods of evaluation will provide 
performance feedback and permit periodic assessment of progress toward 
achieving intended outcomes (see 34 CFR 75.210(h)(2)(vi)).
    (e) Adequacy of resources. (5 points).
    In determining the adequacy of resources for the proposed project, 
the Secretary considers the following:
    (i) The extent to which the budget is adequate to support the 
proposed project (see 34 CFR 75.210(f)(2)(iii)).
    (ii) The extent to which the costs are reasonable in relation to 
the number of persons to be served and to the anticipated results and 
benefits (see 34 CFR 75.210(f)(2)(v)).
    2. Review and Selection Process: We remind potential applicants 
that in reviewing applications in any discretionary grant competition, 
the Secretary may consider, under 34 CFR 75.217(d)(3), the past 
performance of the applicant in carrying out a previous award, such as 
the applicant's use of funds, achievement of project objectives, and 
compliance with grant conditions. The Secretary may also consider 
whether the applicant failed to submit a timely performance report or 
submitted a report of unacceptable quality.
    In addition, in making a competitive grant award, the Secretary 
requires various assurances including those applicable to Federal civil 
rights laws that prohibit discrimination in programs or activities 
receiving Federal financial assistance from the Department (34 CFR 
100.4, 104.5, 106.4, 108.8, and 110.23).
    For this competition, a panel of non-Federal readers will review 
each application in accordance with the selection criteria, consistent 
with 34 CFR 75.217. The individual scores of the reviewers will be 
added and the sum divided by the number of reviewers to determine the 
peer review score received in the review process.
    If there are insufficient funds for all applications with the same 
total scores, the Secretary will choose among the tied applications so 
as to serve geographical areas that have been underserved by the 
CCAMPIS Program.
    3. Risk Assessment and Specific Conditions: Consistent with 2 CFR 
200.205, before awarding grants under this competition the Department 
conducts a review of the risks posed by applicants. Under 2 CFR 
3474.10, the Secretary may impose specific conditions and, in 
appropriate circumstances, high-risk conditions on a grant if the 
applicant or grantee is not financially stable; has a history of 
unsatisfactory performance; has a financial or other management system 
that does not meet the standards in 2 CFR part 200, subpart D; has not 
fulfilled the conditions of a prior grant; or is otherwise not 
responsible.
    4. Integrity and Performance System: If you are selected under this 
competition to receive an award that over the course of the project 
period may exceed the simplified acquisition threshold (currently 
$150,000), under 2 CFR 200.205(a)(2) we must make a judgment about your 
integrity, business ethics, and record of performance under Federal 
awards--that is, the risk posed by you as an applicant--before we make 
an award. In doing so, we must consider any information about you that 
is in the integrity and performance system (currently referred to as 
the Federal Awardee Performance and Integrity Information System 
(FAPIIS)), accessible through the System for Award Management. You may 
review and comment on any information about yourself that a Federal 
agency previously entered and that is currently in FAPIIS.
    Please note that, if the total value of your currently active 
grants, cooperative agreements, and procurement contracts from the 
Federal Government exceeds $10,000,000, the reporting requirements in 2 
CFR part 200, Appendix XII, require you to report certain integrity 
information to FAPIIS semiannually. Please review the requirements in 2 
CFR part 200, Appendix XII, if this grant plus all the other Federal 
funds you receive exceed $10,000,000.

VI. Award Administration Information

    1. Award Notices: If your application is successful, we will notify 
your U.S. Representative and U.S. Senators and send you a Grant Award 
Notification (GAN); or we may send you an email containing a link to 
access an electronic version of your GAN. We may notify you informally, 
also.
    If your application is not evaluated or not selected for funding, 
we will notify you.
    2. Administrative and National Policy Requirements: We identify 
administrative and national policy requirements in the application 
package and reference these and other requirements in the Applicable 
Regulations section of this notice.
    We reference the regulations outlining the terms and conditions of 
an award in the Applicable Regulations section of this notice and 
include these and other specific conditions in the GAN. The GAN also 
incorporates your approved application as part of your binding 
commitments under the grant.
    3. Open Licensing Requirements: Unless an exception applies, if you 
are awarded a grant under this competition, you will be required to 
openly license to the public grant deliverables created in whole, or in 
part, with Department grant funds. When the deliverable consists of 
modifications to pre-existing works, the license extends only to those 
modifications that can be separately identified and only to the extent 
that open licensing is permitted under the terms of any licenses or 
other legal restrictions on the use of pre-existing works.
    Additionally, a grantee or subgrantee that is awarded competitive 
grant funds must have a plan to disseminate these public grant 
deliverables. This dissemination plan can be developed and submitted 
after your application has been reviewed and selected for funding. For 
additional information on the open licensing requirements please refer 
to 2 CFR 3474.20.
    4. Reporting: (a) If you apply for a grant under this competition, 
you must ensure that you have in place the necessary processes and 
systems to comply with the reporting requirements in 2 CFR part 170 
should you receive funding under the competition. This does not apply 
if you have an exception under 2 CFR 170.110(b).
    (b) At the end of your project period, you must submit a final 
performance report, including financial information, as directed by the 
Secretary. If you receive a multiyear award, you must submit an annual 
performance report that provides the most current performance and 
financial expenditure information as directed by the Secretary under 34 
CFR 75.118. The Secretary may also require more frequent performance 
reports under 34 CFR 75.720(c). For specific requirements on reporting, 
please go to www.ed.gov/fund/grant/apply/appforms/appforms.html.
    (c) Under 34 CFR 75.250(b), the Secretary may provide a grantee 
with additional funding for data collection analysis and reporting. In 
this case the Secretary establishes a data collection period.
    5. Performance Measures: The success of the CCAMPIS Program will be

[[Page 28422]]

measured by the postsecondary persistence and degree of completion 
rates of the CCAMPIS Program participants that remain at the grantee 
institution. All CCAMPIS Program grantees will be required to submit an 
annual performance report documenting the persistence and degree 
attainment of their participants. Since students may take different 
lengths of time to complete their degrees, multiple years of 
performance report data are needed to determine the degree completion 
rates of CCAMPIS Program participants. The Department will aggregate 
the data provided in the annual performance reports from all grantees 
to determine the accomplishment level.
    6. Continuation Awards: In making a continuation award under 34 CFR 
75.253, the Secretary considers, among other things: Whether a grantee 
has made substantial progress in achieving the goals and objectives of 
the project; whether the grantee has expended funds in a manner that is 
consistent with its approved application and budget; and, if the 
Secretary has established performance measurement requirements, the 
performance targets in the grantee's approved application.
    In making a continuation grant, the Secretary also considers 
whether the grantee is operating in compliance with the assurances in 
its approved application, including those applicable to Federal civil 
rights laws that prohibit discrimination in programs or activities 
receiving Federal financial assistance from the Department (34 CFR 
100.4, 104.5, 106.4, 108.8, and 110.23).
