ADDRESSES: The affected public, federal, state, and local agencies, any affected Native American tribe, and other interested persons should submit their scoping comments in writing to: Mr Mike Ackerman, (757) 276–8556, AFCEC/CZN; Attn: F–22 FTU EIS, 2261 Hughes Ave., Ste. 155, JBSA Lackland, TX 78236–9853 or via email 633CES.CEIE.NEPAPublicComment@ us.af.mil. For FedEx and UPS Deliveries mail to: F–22 FTU EIS Scoping, 3515 S General McMullen, San Antonio, TX 78226– 9853. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EIS will assess the potential environmental consequences of the proposed action to beddown the F–22 FTU at Langley Air Force Base (AFB), Virginia, and the No Action Alternative, which consists of continuing F–22 FTU operations from a combination of Eglin AFB, Florida and Tyndall AFB, Florida. The Air Force carefully considered other alternatives for this proposed action, but based upon early internal scoping, these alternatives are not currently considered reasonable or within the scope of the proposed EIS due to known operational restrictions. Scoping comments submitted by affected public, federal, state, and local agencies, any affected Native American tribe, and other interested persons should be substantive in nature, in order to assist the Air Force in early identification of significant issues, and to ensure those issues are properly analyzed. There is only one F–22 FTU and it consists of the F–22 aircraft in the 43rd Fighter Squadron (43 FS) and its associated T–38 aircraft in the 2d Fighter Training Squadron (2 FTS). The F–22 is the United States’ premier fighter aircraft and essential to national security. It is a specialized ‘‘FifthGeneration’’ fighter which introduces a large array of sensors that can detect both air and ground targets and share that data with other U.S. and Allied aircraft. In December 2018, the Air Force sought approval from the Council of Environmental Quality (CEQ) of alternative arrangements pursuant to 40 CFR 1506.11 for implementing the procedural provisions of the National Environmental Policy Act, 42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq. (NEPA), for the interim beddown of the Air Force’s F–22 FTU. The Air Force sought alternative arrangements due to emergency conditions resulting from Hurricane VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Mar 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 Michael displacing the 43 FS and 2 FTS from their home at Tyndall Air Force Base (AFB), Florida. On 21 December, 2018, the Air Force announced its decision to accept alternative arrangements proposed and approved by the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) for the Air Force’s interim beddown of the F–22 Formal Training Unit at Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. The Air Force published a memorandum documenting the Air Force’s decision to accept the CEQ’s alternative arrangements in the Federal Register (84 FR 103, January 11, 2019). The alternative arrangements allowed the Air Force to comply with NEPA and temporarily restore training of replacement pilots for the F–22 FTU at Eglin AFB, by January 31, 2019. As part of the alternative arrangements, the Air Force agreed to issue a Notice of Intent to prepare an EIS for the follow-on permanent F–22 FTU beddown, as soon as possible, but no later than April 1, 2019. This notification complies with that requirement. Carlinda N. Lotson, TSgt, USAF, Acting Air Force Federal Register Liaison Officer.

Annual Response Burden Hours: 2,145 (includes 1,762 response hours plus 383 recordkeeping hours). Needs and Uses: The information collected is a result of a new DFARS requirement to use FAR clause 52.245– 1, Government Property, in purchase orders for repair, maintenance, overhaul, or modification of Government property, regardless of the unit acquisition cost of the items to be repaired. Updated information for fiscal year 2018 awards of purchase orders for repairs was obtained from the Federal Procurement Data System to update the number of respondents, responses, and annual burden hours for the information collection and this notice. The property records, receiving reports, and receipt provided in the Wide Area WorkFlow system are used by DoD for Government property accountability. The DFARS requirement for electronic notification of receipt provides assurance to the Government that repair assets have arrived at the contractor’s repair facility. Moreover, in the case of repair items provided under purchase orders, contractors need only report the receipt of the repair item; no other reporting is required. Submission of the information for purchase orders for repairs facilitates compliance with DoD Instruction 4161.02 entitled ‘‘Accountability and Management of Government Contract Property,’’ which requires DoD components to use electronic transactions when transferring Government property to a contractor and upon return of property to DoD.

Notice. AGENCY: jbell on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES ACTION: SUMMARY: DoD is publishing the updated annual list of product categories for which the Federal Prison Industries’ share of the DoD market is greater than five percent. DATES: Applicable Date: March 28, 2019. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Greg Snyder, telephone 703–614–0719. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On November 19, 2009, a final rule was published in the Federal Register at 74 FR 59914, which amended the Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS) subpart 208.6 to implement Section 827 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2008, Public Law 110–181. Section 827 changed DoD competition requirements for purchases from Federal Prison Industries, Inc. (FPI) by requiring DoD to publish an annual list of product categories for which FPI’s share of the DoD market was greater than five percent, based on the most recent fiscal year data available. Product categories on the current list, and the products within each identified product category, must be procured using competitive or fair opportunity procedures in accordance with DFARS 208.602–70. The Principal Director, Defense Pricing and Contracting (DPC), issued a memorandum dated February 26, 2019, that provided the current list of product categories for which FPI’s share of the DoD market is greater than five percent VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Mar 25, 2019 Jkt 247001 based on fiscal year 2018 data from the Federal Procurement Data System. The product categories to be competed effective March 28, 2019, are the following: • 7125 (Cabinets, Lockers, Bins, and Shelving) • 7210 (Household Furnishings) • 7540 (Standard Forms) • 7810 (Athletic and Sporting Equipment) • 8420 (Underwear and Nightwear, Mend’s) • 8470 (Armor, Personal) The DPC memorandum with the current list of product categories for which FPI has a significant market share is posted at: https://www.acq.osd.mil/ dpap/cpic/cp/specific_policy_areas. html#federal_prison. The statute, as implemented, also requires DoD to— (1) Include FPI in the solicitation process for these items. A timely offer from FPI must be considered and award procedures must be followed in accordance with existing policy at Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) 8.602(a)(4)(ii) through (v); (2) Continue to conduct acquisitions, in accordance with FAR subpart 8.6, for items from product categories for which FPI does not have a significant market share. FAR 8.602 requires agencies to conduct market research and make a written comparability determination, at the discretion of the contracting officer. Competitive (or fair opportunity) procedures are appropriate if the FPI product is not comparable in terms of price, quality, or time of delivery; and (3) Modify the published list if DoD subsequently determines that new data requires adding or omitting a product category from the list.
