Abstract: The Secretary of the Interior is authorized to ensure that we provide opportunities within the Service for compatible wildlife-dependent recreational uses across the National Wildlife Refuge System (System). Furthermore, the Secretary is authorized to award concessions contracts under the following Acts: • The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 1966 (Administration Act, 16 U.S.C. 668dd– 668ee), as amended by the National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to negotiate and award contracts and issue regulations to carry out the Act. • The Refuge Recreation Act of 1962 (16 U.S.C.–460k–460k–3) allows the use of refuges for public recreation when such use is not inconsistent with or does not interfere with the primary purpose(s) of the refuge. • The Refuge Revenue Sharing Act (16 U.S.C. 715s) authorizes the Secretary to grant privileges and collect revenues from leases for public accommodations or facilities established for the System. Specifically, the Administration Act provides that, with respect to the Refuge System, it is the policy of the United States that— a. Each refuge shall be managed to fulfill the mission of the System, as well as the specific purposes for which that refuge was established; b. Compatible wildlife-dependent recreation is a legitimate and appropriate general public use of the System, directly related to the mission of the System and the purposes of many refuges, and which generally fosters refuge management and through which the American public can develop an appreciation for fish and wildlife; c. Compatible wildlife-dependent recreational uses are the priority general public uses of the System and shall receive priority consideration in refuge planning and management; and d. When the Secretary determines that a proposed wildlife-dependent recreational use is a compatible use within a refuge, that activity should be facilitated, subject to such restrictions or regulations as may be necessary, reasonable, and appropriate. The Administration Act also provides that, in administering the Refuge System, the Secretary shall— a. Recognize compatible wildlifedependent recreational uses as the priority general public uses of the System, through which the American E:\FR\FM\01JNN1.SGM 01JNN1 33194 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 105 / Monday, June 1, 2020 / Notices jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES public can develop an appreciation for fish and wildlife; b. Ensure that opportunities are provided within the System for compatible wildlife-dependent recreational uses; c. Ensure that priority general public uses of the System receive enhanced consideration over other general public uses in planning and management within the System; and d. Provide increased opportunities for families to experience compatible wildlife-dependent recreation, particularly opportunities for parents and their children to safely engage in traditional outdoor activities, such as fishing and hunting. Private businesses and non-profit organization under contract to the Service provide recreational, educational, and interpretive enjoyment of our lands and waters by managing lodging, food, transportation, and supplies and equipment for the enjoyment of the visiting public. These services gross approximately $3,000,000 every year and provide jobs for more than 100 people annually. The regulations at 50 CFR subpart F (§ 25.61) primarily implement the authorities governing public use facilities operated by concessionaires or cooperators under appropriate contact or legal agreement on national wildlife refuges where there is a demonstrated justified need for services or facilities, including but not limited to boat rentals, swimming facilities, conducted tours of special natural attractions, shelters, tables, trailer lots, food, lodging, and related service. Service Manual chapters 630 FW 4–6 discuss the Service’s current policy for concession management and provide guidance for permitting and administering concession operations on Service lands. We use concession contracts to assist us in providing wildlife-dependent recreation activities to the visiting public by using contracts between the Service and a private entity, where the private entity is allowed to charge a fee for services provided at a field station to the visiting public. We collect information in both narrative (non-form) and form format. The amount of information or degree of detail requested varies widely, depending upon the size and scope of the business opportunity. For example, a much greater amount of detailed information would be required for a multi-unit camping and food service operation than would be required for a small bait sales operation. We use the information provided by prospective concessionaires to objectively evaluate offers received for a particular business opportunity, assure adequate protection of refuge resources, and to determine which offeror will provide the best service to visitors. Below are examples of types of information the Service collects from a potential or current concessionaire. General Concessionaire Information • Description of how the respondent will conduct operations to minimize disturbance to wildlife; protect refuge resources; and provide visitors with a high-quality, safe, and enjoyable visitor experience. • Proposal to protect, conserve, and preserve resources of the refuge. The proposal must respond to specific resource management objectives and issues at the refuge and regarding the contract in question. • Proposal to provide necessary and appropriate visitor services at reasonable rates. This proposal must respond to specific visitor service questions at the refuge and regarding the contract in question. • Experience and related background of the offeror, including past performance and expertise of the offeror in providing the same or similar visitor services as those to be provided under the draft concession contract. • Financial capability of the offeror to carry out its proposal. In particular, we require projected financials, including initial investments, startup expenses, income statement, operating assumptions, cash flow statement, recapture of investments, and all associated assumptions. • The amount of the proposed minimum franchise fee and other forms of financial consideration. Proposal for Concession Opportunity • Offeror’s transmittal letter, including the name and contact information of the entity offering a proposal to operate a concession contract. • Business type of the offeror, such as corporation, limited liability company, partnership, etc. • Business history information, including adverse history that could impact future operations under a concession contract. • Credit report, so that we can understand the offeror’s credit history and any risks of contracting with the entity. • Proposed staffing/management operation information, including organization charts and delegations of authority, to ensure adequate staffing. • Proof of indemnification, including public liability insurance that co-names the Government as co-insured. Reporting Requirements • Annual financial reports providing concessioner financial information, as required by each concession contract. • Quarterly and annual progress reports to monitor performance. • Inspections and inspection reports conducted in concert with the on-site concession manager. Approval To Sell or Transfer Concession Operation • Information to assess the transferee’s ability to manage the business successfully and fulfill the terms of the concession contract, in order for the Regional Director to grant approval. Recordkeeping Requirements • In accordance with Service Manual chapter 630 FW 8.3, a concessioner (and any subconcessioner) must keep and make available to the Service records for the term of the concession contract.

General information concerning the Commission may also be obtained by accessing its internet server (https:// www.usitc.gov). The public record for this proceeding may be viewed on the Commission’s electronic docket (EDIS) at https://edis.usitc.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background.—On July 13, 2015, the Department of Commerce (‘‘Commerce’’) issued antidumping duty orders on imports of steel nails from Korea, Malaysia, Oman, Taiwan, and Vietnam (80 FR 39994). On July 14, 2015, Commerce issued a countervailing duty order on imports of steel nails from Vietnam (80 FR 41006). The Commission is conducting reviews pursuant to section 751(c) of the Act, as amended (19 U.S.C. 1675(c)), to determine whether revocation of the orders would be likely to lead to continuation or recurrence of material injury to the domestic industry within a reasonably foreseeable time. Provisions concerning the conduct of this proceeding may be found in the Commission’s Rules of Practice and Procedure at 19 CFR part 201, subparts A and B, and 19 CFR part 207, subparts A and F. The Commission will assess the adequacy of interested party responses to this notice of institution to determine whether to conduct full or expedited reviews. The Commission’s determinations in any expedited reviews will be based on the facts available, which may include PO 00000 Frm 00117 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 information provided in response to this notice. Definitions.—The following definitions apply to these reviews: (1) Subject Merchandise is the class or kind of merchandise that is within the scope of the five-year reviews, as defined by Commerce. (2) The Subject Countries in these reviews are Korea, Malaysia, Oman, Taiwan, and Vietnam. (3) The Domestic Like Product is the domestically produced product or products which are like, or in the absence of like, most similar in characteristics and uses with, the Subject Merchandise. In its original determinations, the Commission found a single Domestic Like Product consisting of steel nails, coextensive with Commerce’s scope. (4) The Domestic Industry is the U.S. producers as a whole of the Domestic Like Product, or those producers whose collective output of the Domestic Like Product constitutes a major proportion of the total domestic production of the product. In its original determinations, the Commission defined the Domestic Industry to include all domestic producers of nails, except one producer for which appropriate circumstances were found to exclude from the domestic industry. (5) The Order Date is the date that the orders under review became effective. In the reviews of the antidumping duty orders, the Order Date is July 13, 2015. In the review of the countervailing duty order, the Order Date is July 14, 2015. (6) An Importer is any person or firm engaged, either directly or through a parent company or subsidiary, in importing the Subject Merchandise into the United States from a foreign manufacturer or through its selling agent. Participation in the proceeding and public service list.—Persons, including industrial users of the Subject Merchandise and, if the merchandise is E:\FR\FM\01JNN1.SGM 01JNN1

    Abstract: The Secretary of the Interior is authorized to ensure 
that we provide opportunities within the Service for compatible 
wildlife-dependent recreational uses across the National Wildlife 
Refuge System (System). Furthermore, the Secretary is authorized to 
award concessions contracts under the following Acts:
     The National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act of 
1966 (Administration Act, 16 U.S.C. 668dd-668ee), as amended by the 
National Wildlife Refuge System Improvement Act of 1997, authorizes the 
Secretary of the Interior to negotiate and award contracts and issue 
regulations to carry out the Act.
     The Refuge Recreation Act of 1962 (16 U.S.C.-460k-460k-3) 
allows the use of refuges for public recreation when such use is not 
inconsistent with or does not interfere with the primary purpose(s) of 
the refuge.
     The Refuge Revenue Sharing Act (16 U.S.C. 715s) authorizes 
the Secretary to grant privileges and collect revenues from leases for 
public accommodations or facilities established for the System.
    Specifically, the Administration Act provides that, with respect to 
the Refuge System, it is the policy of the United States that--
    a. Each refuge shall be managed to fulfill the mission of the 
System, as well as the specific purposes for which that refuge was 
established;
    b. Compatible wildlife-dependent recreation is a legitimate and 
appropriate general public use of the System, directly related to the 
mission of the System and the purposes of many refuges, and which 
generally fosters refuge management and through which the American 
public can develop an appreciation for fish and wildlife;
    c. Compatible wildlife-dependent recreational uses are the priority 
general public uses of the System and shall receive priority 
consideration in refuge planning and management; and
    d. When the Secretary determines that a proposed wildlife-dependent 
recreational use is a compatible use within a refuge, that activity 
should be facilitated, subject to such restrictions or regulations as 
may be necessary, reasonable, and appropriate.
    The Administration Act also provides that, in administering the 
Refuge System, the Secretary shall--
    a. Recognize compatible wildlife-dependent recreational uses as the 
priority general public uses of the System, through which the American

[[Page 33194]]

public can develop an appreciation for fish and wildlife;
    b. Ensure that opportunities are provided within the System for 
compatible wildlife-dependent recreational uses;
    c. Ensure that priority general public uses of the System receive 
enhanced consideration over other general public uses in planning and 
management within the System; and
    d. Provide increased opportunities for families to experience 
compatible wildlife-dependent recreation, particularly opportunities 
for parents and their children to safely engage in traditional outdoor 
activities, such as fishing and hunting.
    Private businesses and non-profit organization under contract to 
the Service provide recreational, educational, and interpretive 
enjoyment of our lands and waters by managing lodging, food, 
transportation, and supplies and equipment for the enjoyment of the 
visiting public. These services gross approximately $3,000,000 every 
year and provide jobs for more than 100 people annually.
    The regulations at 50 CFR subpart F (Sec.  25.61) primarily 
implement the authorities governing public use facilities operated by 
concessionaires or cooperators under appropriate contact or legal 
agreement on national wildlife refuges where there is a demonstrated 
justified need for services or facilities, including but not limited to 
boat rentals, swimming facilities, conducted tours of special natural 
attractions, shelters, tables, trailer lots, food, lodging, and related 
service.
    Service Manual chapters 630 FW 4-6 discuss the Service's current 
policy for concession management and provide guidance for permitting 
and administering concession operations on Service lands. We use 
concession contracts to assist us in providing wildlife-dependent 
recreation activities to the visiting public by using contracts between 
the Service and a private entity, where the private entity is allowed 
to charge a fee for services provided at a field station to the 
visiting public.
    We collect information in both narrative (non-form) and form 
format. The amount of information or degree of detail requested varies 
widely, depending upon the size and scope of the business opportunity. 
For example, a much greater amount of detailed information would be 
required for a multi-unit camping and food service operation than would 
be required for a small bait sales operation. We use the information 
provided by prospective concessionaires to objectively evaluate offers 
received for a particular business opportunity, assure adequate 
protection of refuge resources, and to determine which offeror will 
provide the best service to visitors.
    Below are examples of types of information the Service collects 
from a potential or current concessionaire.
