The BLM also requests comments on tracts which should receive special concern and analysis as well as the size of the tracts and, specifically, whether the sizes of any tracts should be reduced. BLM will protect privileged or proprietary information in nominations in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requirements. To avoid inadvertent release of such information, all documents and every page containing such information should be marked with ‘‘Confidential— Contains Proprietary Information.’’ To the extent a document contains a mix of proprietary and nonproprietary information, the document should be clearly marked to indicate which portion of the document is proprietary and which is not. Exemption 4 of FOIA applies to trade secrets and commercial or financial information that you submit that is privileged or confidential. BLM considers nominations of specific tracts to be proprietary, and therefore BLM will not release information that identifies any particular nomination or any particular submitting party, so as not to compromise the competitive position of any participants in the process of indicating interest. However, BLM’s practice is to make all comments, including the names and SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:46 Nov 16, 2020 Jkt 253001 addresses of individuals, available for public inspection.
