Background In 1981, GSA completed an EIS that analyzed the impacts from the construction of new laboratory space at the MRC and the consolidation of four facilities in the Washington, DC, metro area and other sites in St. Louis, MO, and Cincinnati, OH. In 1990, Congress enacted the Food and Drug Revitalization Act that gave GSA the authority to grant contracts to consolidate FDA facilities. To accommodate future growth and further consolidate FDA operations, GSA is preparing an EIS to assess the impacts of development on the MRC and an increase in the employee population of up to approximately 1,800 employees, over a period of 20 years. The purpose of the proposed action is to provide a Master Plan for the MRC to guide future site development. The proposed action is needed to accommodate projected growth at the MRC and provide the necessary office and laboratory space for FDA to conduct complex and comprehensive research and reviews. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES Schedule for Decision-Making A Draft EIS is expected to be released for public review in June 2021. The GSA will hold a public hearing on the impacts of the proposed action in July 2021, and will seek preliminary approval of the MRC Master Plan from the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) at NCPC’s September 2021 hearing. A Final EIS will be prepared that will take into consideration all comments received on the Draft EIS, and a Record of Decision is anticipated in spring 2022. Pending completion of NEPA compliance and review by NCPC, GSA anticipates adopting the MRC Master Plan in spring 2022. Scoping Process In accordance with NEPA, a scoping process will be conducted to aid in determining the alternatives to be considered and the scope of issues to be addressed, as well as for identifying the significant issues related to the proposed MRC Master Plan. Scoping will be accomplished through a virtual public scoping meeting; direct mail correspondence to potentially interested persons, agencies, and organizations; and meetings with agencies having an interest in the Master Plan. It is important that Federal, regional, State, and local agencies, and interested VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Dec 21, 2020 Jkt 253001 individuals take this opportunity to identify environmental concerns that should be addressed during the preparation of the EIS. Public Scoping Meeting Due to the ongoing COVID–19 pandemic and state/local requirements for social distancing, a pre-recorded presentation will be available at www.gsa.gov/ncrnepa in lieu of a traditional in-person public scoping meeting. A project phone line [410– 777–9537] has also been set up to listen to the presentation and to leave comments on the proposed Master Plan. The pre-recorded presentation and phone line will be available from January 4, 2021, through February 11, 2021. The GSA is publishing notices in the Washington Post and Prince George’s Post announcing the meeting. Written Comments Agencies and the public are encouraged to provide comments on identification of potential alternatives, information, and analyses relevant to the proposed action. Comments may be provided in writing via mail or email. Verbal comments may also be provided via the project phone line.

These mission responsibilities generate requirements that are realized through the solicitation and award of public contracts. Most GSA procurement-related information collections are required by the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) or General Services Administration Acquisition Regulation (GSAR); each clause requiring such a collection must be individually approved by OMB. However, some solicitations require contractors to submit information specific to that contracting action, such as information needed to evaluate offers (e.g. specific instructions for technical and price proposals, references for past performance) or data used to administer resulting contracts (e.g. project management plans). This information collection is currently associated with GSA’s information collection requirements contained in solicitations issued in accordance with the Uniform Contract Format under FAR Part 14, Sealed Bidding (see GSAR 514.201–1); FAR E:\FR\FM\22DEN1.SGM 22DEN1 83584 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 246 / Tuesday, December 22, 2020 / Notices Part 15, Contracting by Negotiation (see GSAR 552.215–73); and solicitations under FAR Part 12, Acquisition of Commercial Items (see GSAR 512.301).

Individuals nominated prior to March 15, 2020, who continue to have interest in serving on the USPSTF should be re-nominated. Qualification Requirements To qualify for the USPSTF and support its mission, an applicant or nominee should, at a minimum, demonstrate knowledge, expertise and national leadership in the following areas: 1. The critical evaluation of research published in peer-reviewed literature and in the methods of evidence review; PO 00000 Frm 00075 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2.

Applicants must have adequate time to contribute substantively to the work products of the USPSTF. Nominee Selection Nominated individuals will be selected for the USPSTF on the basis of how well they meet the required qualifications and the current expertise needs of the USPSTF. It is anticipated that new members will be invited to serve on the USPSTF beginning in January, 2022. All nominated individuals will be considered; however, strongest consideration will be given to individuals with demonstrated training and expertise in the areas of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, Obstetrics and Gynecology, and Advanced Practice Nursing. AHRQ will retain and may consider for future vacancies nominations received this year and not selected during this cycle. Some USPSTF members without primary health care clinical experience may be selected based on their expertise in methodological issues such as metaanalysis, analytic modeling, or clinical epidemiology. For individuals with clinical expertise in primary health care, additional qualifications in methodology would enhance their candidacy. E:\FR\FM\22DEN1.SGM 22DEN1

    Most GSA procurement-related information collections are required

references for past performance) or data used to administer resulting 
contracts (e.g. project management plans).
    This information collection is currently associated with GSA's 
information collection requirements contained in solicitations issued 
in accordance with the Uniform Contract Format under FAR Part 14, 
Sealed Bidding (see GSAR 514.201-1); FAR
