ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: Pursuant to the requirements of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969 (NEPA), the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations, and the GSA PBS NEPA Desk Guide, GSA is issuing this notice to advise the public that an Environmental Assessment (EA) will be prepared for the Appraisers Building and U.S. Customs House Modernization Project, San Francisco, CA (Project). DATES: Agencies and the public are encouraged to provide written comments regarding the scope of the EA. Comments must be received by August 26, 2019.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background GSA intends to prepare an EA to analyze the potential impacts resulting from proposed renovations associated with the Appraisers Building and U.S. Customs House Renovations Project. The Project is located at 630 Sansome Street (Appraisers Building) and 555 Battery Street (U.S. Customs House), San Francisco, California. The Project is proposed in order to bring these buildings up to current building code, safety standards and serviceable condition and to prolong their useful life. The Appraisers Building is a Class-B office building on a .86-acre site in the central business district of San Francisco. The original structure was constructed in 1944, and is nineteen stories above-ground, which includes the penthouse, loft, two levels of mechanical space, and three tiered-roof levels. This building is adjacent to the U.S. Customs House. The U.S. Customs House is on a .86acre site located on the northern edge of the city’s financial district, occupying one-half of the block bounded by Sansome, Jackson, Battery and Washington Streets. The Class B structure was constructed in 1911 and is composed of two interconnected structures. Alternatives Under Consideration The EA will consider one Action Alternative (the Proposed Action) and the No Action Alternative. The Action Alternative would consist of modernization work to repair, modify or replace certain building improvements and systems. The buildings would not be expanded in size and there would be no change in personnel staffing levels at each building. Construction is likely to impact parking access and traffic flow during construction. Under the No Action Alternative, modernization enhancements to the existing buildings would not occur. Scoping Process Scoping will be accomplished through public notifications in the San Francisco Chronicle, social media announcements, and direct mail correspondence to appropriate federal, state, and local agencies; surrounding property owners; and private organizations and citizens who have PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 previously expressed or are known to have an interest in the Project. The primary purpose of the scoping process is for the public to assist GSA in determining the scope and content of the environmental analysis. Dated: July 24, 2019.

Needs and Uses Notice of Availability and Announcement of Public Meeting for the Final Environmental Assessment for the Edward J. Schwartz Federal Building Structural Enhancements Project in San Diego, California FAR subpart 9.2 and the associated clause at FAR 52.209–1, implement the statutory requirements of 10 U.S.C. 2319 and 41 U.S.C. 3311, which allow an agency to establish a qualification requirement for testing or other quality assurance demonstration that must be completed by an offeror before award of a contract. Under the qualification requirements, an end item, or a component thereof, may be required to be prequalified. The clause at FAR 52.209–1, Qualification Requirements, requires offerors who have met the qualification requirements to identify the offeror’s name, the manufacturer’s name, source’s name, the item name, service identification, and test number (to the extent known). This eliminates the need for an offeror to provide new information when the offeror, manufacturer, source, product or service covered by qualification requirement has already met the standards specified by an agency in a solicitation. The contracting officer uses the information to determine eligibility for award when the clause at 52.209–1 is included in the solicitation.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Osmahn Kadri, Regional Environmental Quality Advisor/NEPA Project Manager, GSA, at 415–522–3617. Please also call this number if special assistance is needed to attend and participate in the public meeting. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background AGENCY: SUMMARY: 36927 The Project is proposed in order to improve structural safety for the public traveling underneath the building and for the tenants occupying the building above the Front Street underpass, located at 880 Front Street in San Diego, California. The portion of Front Street that extends below the building is referred to as the Front Street underpass. The existing building has five stories of federal office building space spanning above the roadway and two levels of parking structure beneath the roadway. The Final EA addresses the Proposed Action Alternative and the No Action Alternative. The Action Alternative consists of structural enhancement improvements to the portion of the existing Edward J. Schwartz Federal Building over Front Street between E and F streets. Existing columns and beams supporting the building at the Front Street underpass would be reinforced with new steel beams and column support structures and pre-cast concrete paneling. Construction would require full and partial closure of Front Street between Broadway and F Street. Street closure options during construction of the Action Alternative are being considered and a comprehensive Traffic Control Plan will be prepared in coordination with the City of San Diego to address the street closure. The No Action Alternative assumes that structural enhancements to the existing building would not occur. The Draft EA was made publicly available on November 16, 2018 for a 30-day period. The public review period closed on December 17, 2018. The Notice of Availability for the Draft EA was published in the Federal Register at 83 E:\FR\FM\30JYN1.SGM 30JYN1

B. Needs and Uses

    FAR subpart 9.2 and the associated clause at FAR 52.209-1, 
implement the statutory requirements of 10 U.S.C. 2319 and 41 U.S.C. 
3311, which allow an agency to establish a qualification requirement 
for testing or other quality assurance demonstration that must be 
completed by an offeror before award of a contract. Under the 
qualification requirements, an end item, or a component thereof, may be 
required to be prequalified.
    The clause at FAR 52.209-1, Qualification Requirements, requires 
offerors who have met the qualification requirements to identify the 
offeror's name, the manufacturer's name, source's name, the item name, 
service identification, and test number (to the extent known). This 
eliminates the need for an offeror to provide new information when the 
offeror, manufacturer, source, product or service covered by 
qualification requirement has already met the standards specified by an 
agency in a solicitation.
    The contracting officer uses the information to determine 
eligibility for award when the clause at 52.209-1 is included in the
