Download as PDF 47676 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 183 / Thursday, September 20, 2018 / Notices should also summarize any preparation the Applicant may need to make if the experiment is approved and the time necessary for that preparation (e.g., provide training for staff; make needed changes to procedures, organization charts, etc.). The FHWA will evaluate the Concept Paper, and either request the Applicant to proceed to the Detailed Proposal stage, or provide an explanation for not advancing the request. Since the requirements for the Detailed Proposal will vary depending on the complexity of the proposed program assumption and the results of FHWA’s evaluation of the Concept Paper, the appropriate FHWA Division will coordinate with the Applicant in preparing the Detailed Proposal. At a minimum, the Applicant’s Detailed Proposal should: (1) Propose a duration for conducting the experiment, including a timeline for any transition activities; (2) identify key personnel and contacts with proposed roles and responsibilities; and (3) recommend an Evaluation Plan with reporting mechanisms, performance measures, goals, and other evaluation criteria, and frequency of reviews. To provide consistency among the SEP–16 experiments, FHWA will provide the Applicant certain performance measures and evaluation criteria common to all SEP–16 Evaluation Plans. Should FHWA decide to proceed with the experiment, FHWA and the Applicant will enter into a memorandum of understanding and develop a workplan for the experiment. Conclusion The FHWA is committed to continuing its transition to a risk-based approach to stewardship and oversight of the FAHP. To this end, SEP–16 is designed to provide FHWA with a better understanding of the implications of allowing States to assume program-level authorities in various program areas. This notice announces the SEP–16 and identifies the process for States to apply to assume program-level responsibilities for the FAHP in their States. amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 (Authority: 23 U.S.C. 315 and 502).
