Download as PDF 26896 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 94 / Tuesday, May 18, 2021 / Notices • December—The Census Bureau distributes the SCO emails. The SCO email contains information required by the SCO to participate in the program. • March—The Census Bureau distributes discrepancy emails to local governments based on feedback from the SCO. The state certification materials include a governor’s letter, an email to the SCO, respondent guide, legal boundary change and government name and status listings, and discrepancy email to local governments. The listings and respondent guide are provided on the BAS website. The SCO returns all updates electronically through the SWIM file transfer module. Boundary Quality The Boundary Quality project is designed to assess, analyze, and improve the spatial quality of legal, statistical, and administrative boundaries within the Census Bureau’s MAF/TIGER System. Ensuring quality boundaries is a critical component of the geographic preparations for each decennial census and the Census Bureau’s ongoing geographic programs. In addition, the improvement of boundary quality is an essential element of the Census Bureau’s commitment as the responsible agency for legal boundaries under OMB Circular A–16. The Boundary Quality project represents an effort to systematically target and assess boundary quality within the Census Bureau’s MAF/TIGER System. Historically, it has relied exclusively on geographic programs such as BAS and the Participant Statistical Areas Program (PSAP) to obtain updates to tribal, state, local government, and CDP boundaries. While programs like BAS play an essential role in improving boundary quality, the goal of boundary quality activities is to establish a more accurate baseline for legal boundaries and CDPs within an entire state or county. BAS would build on this baseline by collecting individual legal boundary changes and optionally associated addresses, and CDP updates, on a transaction basis as they occur over the years. jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES III.
