Download as PDF 37474 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 120 / Monday, June 22, 2020 / Notices Facilities are defined as shared-use infrastructure, instrumentation and equipment that are accessible to a broad community of researchers and/or educators. Facilities may be centralized or may consist of distributed installations. They may incorporate large-scale networking or computational infrastructure, multi-user instruments or networks of such instruments, or other infrastructure, instrumentation and equipment having a major impact on a broad segment of a scientific or engineering discipline. Historically, awards have been made for such diverse projects as accelerators, telescopes, research vessels and aircraft, and geographically distributed but networked sensors and instrumentation. The growth and diversification of large facility projects require that NSF remain attentive to the ever-changing issues and challenges inherent in their planning, construction, operation, management and oversight. Most importantly, dedicated, competent NSF and awardee staff are needed to manage and oversee these projects; giving the attention and oversight that good practice dictates and that proper accountability to taxpayers and Congress demands. To this end, there is also a need for consistent, documented requirements and procedures to be understood and used by NSF program managers and awardees for all such major projects. Use of the Information: Facilities are an essential part of the science and engineering enterprise and supporting them is one major responsibility of the National Science Foundation (NSF). NSF makes awards to external entities— primarily universities, consortia of universities or non-profit organizations—to undertake construction, management and operation of facilities. Such awards frequently take the form of cooperative agreements. NSF does not directly construct or operate the facilities it supports. However, NSF retains responsibility for overseeing their development, management and successful performance. Business Systems Reviews (BSR) of the National Science Foundation’s (NSF) Major Facilities are designed to provide reasonable assurance that the business systems (people, processes, and technologies) of NSF Recipients are effective in meeting administrative responsibilities and satisfying Federal regulatory requirements, including those listed in NSF’s Proposal & Award Policies & Procedures Guide (PAPPG). These reviews are not considered audits but are intended to be assistive in nature; aiding the Recipient in following VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:08 Jun 19, 2020 Jkt 250001 good practices where appropriate and bringing them into compliance, if needed. A team of BSR Participants is assembled to assess the Recipient’s policies, procedures, and practices to determine whether, taken collectively, these administrative business systems used in managing the Facility meet NSF award expectations and comply with Federal regulations. The BSR Guide is designed for use by both our customer community and NSF staff for guidance in leading these reviews. The BSR Guide defines the overall framework and structure and summarizes the details outlined in the internal operating guidelines and procedures used by BSR Participants to execute the review process. Management principles and practices are specified for seven core functional areas (CFA) and are used by BSR Participants in performing these evaluations. Roles and responsibilities of the NSF stakeholders involved in the process are outlined in the BSR Guide as well as the expectations of the Recipient. This version of the Business Systems Guide aligns with the Uniform Guidance and the NSF Major Facilities Guide. This Guide will be updated periodically to reflect changes in requirements, policies and/or procedures. Award Recipients are expected to monitor and adopt the requirements and best practices included in the Guide. The submission of Award Recipient and Project administrative business process and procedural documentation used in support of operations of the Major Facilities is part of the collection of information. This information is used to help NSF fulfill this responsibility in supporting merit-based research and education projects in all the scientific and engineering disciplines. The Foundation also has a continuing commitment to provide oversight on facilities design and construction which must be balanced against monitoring its information collection so as to identify and address any excessive review and reporting burdens. NSF has approximately twenty-four (24) Major Facilities in various stages of design, construction, operations and divestment. The need for a BSR and review scope is based on NSF’s internal annual Major Facility Portfolio Risk Assessment and the assessment of various risks factors. Burden to the Public: The Foundation estimates that approximately one and half (1.5) Full Time Equivalents (FTEs) are necessary for each major facility project to respond to a BSR PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 requirements on an annual basis; or 2,824 hours per year. With an average of four (4) conducted a year, this equates to roughly 5 FTEs or 11,296 public burden hours annually. Dated: June 16, 2020. Suzanne H.

The NRC received no request for a hearing or petition for leave to intervene following the notice. The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report for the renewal of the ISFSI license and concluded, based on that evaluation that the ISFSI will continue to meet the regulations in 10 CFR part 72. The NRC staff also prepared an environmental assessment and finding of no significant impact for the renewal of this license, which were published on May 5, 2020 (85 FR 26734). The NRC staff’s environmental assessment included the impacts of continued storage of spent nuclear fuel (as documented in NUREG–2157, ‘‘Generic Environmental Impact Statement for Continued Storage of Spent Fuel’’). The NRC staff concluded that renewal of this ISFSI license will not have a significant impact on the quality of the human environment. II.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Discussion

    Based upon the application dated July 10, 2018, as supplemented 
October 22, 2018, July 1, 2019, July 25, 2019, and November 21, 2019, 
the NRC has issued a renewed license to the licensee for the Humboldt 
Bay ISFSI, located in Humboldt County, California. The renewed license 
SNM-2514 authorizes and requires operation of the Humboldt Bay ISFSI in 
accordance with the provisions of the renewed license and its technical 
specifications. The renewed license will expire on November 17, 2065.
    The licensee's application for a renewed license complies with the 
standards and requirements of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended 
(the Act), and the NRC's rules and regulations. The NRC has made 
appropriate findings as required by the Act and the NRC's regulations 
in Chapter 1 of title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (10 CFR), 
and sets forth those findings in the renewed license. The agency 
afforded an opportunity for a hearing in the Notice of Opportunity for 
a Hearing published in the Federal Register on December 26, 2018 (83 FR 
66314). The NRC received no request for a hearing or petition for leave 
to intervene following the notice.
    The NRC staff prepared a safety evaluation report for the renewal 
of the ISFSI license and concluded, based on that evaluation that the 
ISFSI will continue to meet the regulations in 10 CFR part 72. The NRC 
staff also prepared an environmental assessment and finding of no 
significant impact for the renewal of this license, which were 
published on May 5, 2020 (85 FR 26734). The NRC staff's environmental 
assessment included the impacts of continued storage of spent nuclear 
fuel (as documented in NUREG-2157, ``Generic Environmental Impact 
Statement for Continued Storage of Spent Fuel''). The NRC staff 
concluded that renewal of this ISFSI license will not have a 
significant impact on the quality of the human environment.
