They also must be conducted in accordance with federal laws, regulations, and executive orders. 3 Such notification must be provided regardless of whether the behavior leading to the finding/ determination, or placement on administrative leave, or the imposition of an administrative action occurred while the PI or Co-I was carrying out award activities. 4 Only the identification of the PI or Co-I is required. Personally identifiable information regarding any complainants or other individuals involved in the matter must not be included in the notification. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:32 Jul 09, 2019 Jkt 247001 The awardee must also provide: b A description of the finding/ determination and action(s) taken, if any; and/or b The reason(s) for, and conditions of placement of the PI or any Co-I on administrative action. The awardee, at any time, may propose a substitute investigator if it determines the PI or any Co-I may not be able to carry out the funded project or activity and/or abide by the award terms and conditions. In reviewing the notification, NASA will consider, at a minimum, the following factors: a. The safety and security of personnel supported by the NASA award; b. The overall impact to the NASAfunded activity; c. The continued advancement of taxpayer-funded investments in science and scientists; and d. Whether the awardee has taken appropriate action(s) to ensure the continuity of science and that continued progress under the funded project can be made. Upon receipt and review of the information provided, NASA will consult with the AOR, or designee. Based on the results of this review and consultation, the Agency may, if necessary and in accordance with 2 CFR 200.338, assert its programmatic stewardship responsibilities and oversight authority to initiate the substitution or removal of the PI or any Co-I, reduce the award funding amount, or where neither of those previous options is available or adequate, to suspend or terminate the award. Other personnel supported by a NASA award must likewise remain in full compliance with awardee policies or codes of conduct, statutes, regulations, or executive orders relating to sexual harassment, other forms of harassment, or sexual assault. With regard to any personnel not in compliance, the awardee must make appropriate arrangements to ensure the safety and security of other award personnel and the continued progress of the funded project. Notification of these actions is not required under this term and condition. End of Proposed Term and Condition Implementation Upon receipt and resolution of all comments, it is NASA’s intention to implement the new term through revision of the NASA Agency Specific Requirements to the Research Terms and Conditions, the Grant General Conditions, and the Cooperative PO 00000 Frm 00106 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Agreement—Financial and Administrative Terms and Conditions. These revised terms and conditions will become effective thirty days from the date of publication in the Federal Register and will be available in the NASA Grants and Cooperative Agreement Manual (GCAM). The new term and condition will be applied to all new NASA awards and funding amendments to existing awards made on or after the effective date. This new reporting requirement will apply to all findings/determinations that occur on or after the effective date of the terms and conditions. With regard to notification of placement on administrative leave, the awardee must notify NASA within seven business days from the date the awardee determines that placement on administrative leave is necessary. Awardees are strongly encouraged to conduct a thorough review of the term and condition to determine whether the new requirements necessitate any changes to the institution’s policies and procedures. The new term and condition will be effective for any new award, or funding amendment to an existing award, made on or after the effective date. For these purposes, this means that any finding/determination, placement on administrative leave or the imposition of any administrative action by the institution made on or after the start date of an award or funding amendment subject to the new term will invoke the new notification requirements.

In order to adopt Amendment No. 6 to CoC No. 1015, Maine Yankee is requesting the reissuance of the four previously approved exemptions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background Maine Yankee is a general licensee under part 72 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR). Maine Yankee stores spent nuclear fuel in accordance with the requirements of CoC No. 1015 for the NAC–UMS® System. Section 72.210, ‘‘General license issued,’’ establishes a general license to store spent nuclear fuel in an ISFSI at reactor sites licensed under 10 CFR part 50; Maine Yankee holds Facility Operating License No. DPR 36 under 10 CFR part 50. Section 72.212, ‘‘Conditions of general license issued under § 72.210,’’ provides the conditions for use of a general license. Section 72.212(b)(3) limits the storage of PO 00000 Frm 00107 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 32965 spent fuel to the approved casks listed in § 72.214. Casks are approved for storage under the conditions specified in the respective CoCs. The NRC approved the use of the NAC–UMS® System by issuing CoC No. 1015, effective November 20, 2000. NRC regulations require users to comply with the terms and conditions of the CoC including, but not limited to, the associated technical specifications. The requested exemptions would allow Maine Yankee to deviate from certain requirements of the NAC–UMS® System CoC No. 1015, Amendment No. 6, as discussed in this document. II. Request/Action Maine Yankee is requesting the reissuance of four exemptions from the terms and conditions of Amendment No. 6 to CoC No. 1015 that were previously approved for Amendment No. 5 to CoC No. 1015. Maine Yankee submitted its request by letter dated January 21, 2019, supplemented by letter dated April 11, 2019. Maine Yankee requested specific exemptions from the requirements in 10 CFR 72.212(a)(2), 72.212(b)(3), 72.212(b)(5)(i), 72.212(b)(11), and 72.214, with regard to certain terms and conditions of Appendices A and B to the technical specifications of Amendment No. 6 to CoC No. 1015 detailed below. Maine Yankee stated that adoption of the exemptions would not result in any impact to the safe storage of the spent fuel at the ISFSI and will not increase the probability or consequences of an accident. The four exemptions are: 1. Appendix A, Section A.3.1.4, Canister Maximum Time in Transfer Cask. This exemption is from the requirement to comply with the 25-day requirement in Limiting Condition of Operation 3.1.4 for canister, NAC– UMS–TSC–790–016. 2. Appendix A, Section A.5.1, Training Program. This exemption is from the requirement to develop a systematic approach to training that includes comprehensive instructions for the operation and maintenance of the ISFSI, except for the NAC–UMS® System. 3. Appendix A, Section A.5.5, Radioactive Effluent Control Program. This exemption is from the requirement to submit an annual report pursuant to 10 CFR 72.44(d)(3) or 10 CFR 50.36(a). 4. Appendix B, Section B.3.4.2.6. This exemption is from the requirement to maintain a coefficient of friction on the ISFSI pad surface of at least 0.5.
