Consistent with the requirements of the Federal Advisory Committee Act, the Commission seeks candidates with diverse backgrounds, so that the membership on the Committee is fairly balanced in terms of the points of view represented and functions to be performed by the Committee. Candidates will undergo a thorough security background check to obtain the security clearance that is mandatory for all ACRS members. The security background check will involve the completion and submission of paperwork to the NRC. Candidates for ACRS appointment may be involved in or have financial interests related to NRC-regulated aspects of the nuclear industry. However, because conflict-of-interest considerations may restrict the participation of a candidate in ACRS activities, the degree and nature of any such restriction on an individual’s activities as a member will be considered in the selection process. Each qualified candidate’s financial interests must be reconciled with applicable Federal and NRC rules and regulations prior to final appointment. This might require divestiture of securities or discontinuance of certain contracts or grants. Information regarding these restrictions will be provided upon request. As a part of the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge Act of 2012, which bans insider trading by members of Congress, their staff, and other high-level federal employees, candidates for appointments will be required to disclose additional financial transactions.

III. NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC The NRC staff has determined that the specified inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified acceptance criteria are met. The documentation of the NRC staff’s determination is in the ITAAC Closure Verification Evaluation Form (VEF) for each ITAAC. The VEF is a form that represents the NRC staff’s structured process for reviewing ICNs and IPCNs. Each ICN presents a narrative description of how the ITAAC was completed. The NRC’s ICN review process involves a determination on whether, among other things: (1) Each ICN provides sufficient information, including a summary of the methodology used to perform the ITAAC, to demonstrate that the inspections, tests, and analyses have been successfully completed; (2) each ICN provides sufficient information to demonstrate that the acceptance criteria of the ITAAC are met; and (3) any NRC inspections for the ITAAC have been completed and any ITAAC findings associated with that ITAAC have been closed. The NRC’s review process for IPCNs is similar to that for ICNs but focuses on how the licensee addressed the new, material information giving rise to the IPCN. The NRC staff’s determination of the successful completion of these ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to the licensee’s ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance criteria are met. If the NRC staff receives new information that suggests the NRC staff’s determination on any of these ITAAC is incorrect, then the NRC staff will determine whether to reopen that ITAAC (including VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:21 Sep 07, 2021 Jkt 253001 withdrawing the NRC staff’s determination on that ITAAC). The NRC staff’s determination will be used to support a subsequent finding, pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of construction that all acceptance criteria in the combined license are met. The ITAAC closure process is not finalized for these ITAAC until the NRC makes an affirmative finding under 10 CFR 52.103(g). Any future updates to the status of these ITAAC can be found by selecting the link ‘‘ITAAC Status Report’’ on the NRC’s websites: https:// www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/colholder/vog3.html and https:// www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/colholder/vog4.html. This notice fulfills the NRC staff’s obligations under 10 CFR 52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the NRC staff’s determination of the successful completion of inspections, tests, and analyses. Note: As of August 12, 2021, NRC staff rescinds its previous determination of the successful completion of ITAAC 2.5.05.03b (570) for both VEGP Units 3 and 4 due to the subsequent determination by NRC staff that this ITAAC is not met for both units. The NRC’s prior determination of the successful completion of ITAAC 2.5.05.03b (570) was originally published in the Federal Register (85 FR 67017) on October 21, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This notice announces changes to FEGLI Employee Basic, Option A (most age bands), Option B (most age bands), Option C (most age bands), and PostRetirement Basic Insurance. FEGLI premium rates are assessed based on Program experience in accordance with FEGLI statutes at 8711(b), 8714a(e), 8714b(e), and 8714c(e), and OPM’s Annual FEGLI Rate Review Process. The premium rates in the FEGLI program represent estimates of premium income necessary to pay future expected benefits costs. The rates for all coverage categories are specific to the experience of the FEGLI group and are not based on mortality rates within the general population. Actuarial analysis of changing mortality rates makes periodic premium adjustments necessary. OPM has completed a study of funding and claims experience within the FEGLI Program. Based on this updated actuarial analysis of actual claims experience, OPM has determined that changes are required to Employee Basic, Option A, Option B, Option C and Post-Retirement Basic Insurance premiums.

    The ITAAC for VEGP Unit 3 are in Appendix C of the VEGP Unit 3 
combined license (ADAMS Accession No. ML14100A106). The ITAAC for VEGP 
Unit 4 are in Appendix C of VEGP Unit 4 combined license (ADAMS 
Accession No. ML14100A135).

II. Licensee ITAAC Post-Closure Notifications (IPCNs)

    Since the last Federal Register notice of the NRC staff's 
determinations of successful completion of inspections, tests, and 
analyses for VEGP Units 3 and 4 (86 FR 23756; May 4, 2021), the NRC 
staff has not made additional determinations of the successful 
completion of inspections, tests, and analyses based on licensee IPCNs 
submitted under 10 CFR 52.99(c)(2).

III. NRC Staff Determination of Completion of ITAAC

    The NRC staff has determined that the specified inspections, tests, 
and analyses have been successfully completed, and that the specified 
acceptance criteria are met. The documentation of the NRC staff's 
determination is in the ITAAC Closure Verification Evaluation Form 
(VEF) for each ITAAC. The VEF is a form that represents the NRC staff's 
structured process for reviewing ICNs and IPCNs.
    Each ICN presents a narrative description of how the ITAAC was 
completed. The NRC's ICN review process involves a determination on 
whether, among other things: (1) Each ICN provides sufficient 
information, including a summary of the methodology used to perform the 
ITAAC, to demonstrate that the inspections, tests, and analyses have 
been successfully completed; (2) each ICN provides sufficient 
information to demonstrate that the acceptance criteria of the ITAAC 
are met; and (3) any NRC inspections for the ITAAC have been completed 
and any ITAAC findings associated with that ITAAC have been closed. The 
NRC's review process for IPCNs is similar to that for ICNs but focuses 
on how the licensee addressed the new, material information giving rise 
to the IPCN.
    The NRC staff's determination of the successful completion of these 
ITAAC is based on information available at this time and is subject to 
the licensee's ability to maintain the condition that the acceptance 
criteria are met. If the NRC staff receives new information that 
suggests the NRC staff's determination on any of these ITAAC is 
incorrect, then the NRC staff will determine whether to reopen that 
ITAAC (including withdrawing the NRC staff's determination on that 
ITAAC). The NRC staff's determination will be used to support a 
subsequent finding, pursuant to 10 CFR 52.103(g), at the end of 
construction that all acceptance criteria in the combined license are 
met. The ITAAC closure process is not finalized for these ITAAC until 
the NRC makes an affirmative finding under 10 CFR 52.103(g). Any future 
updates to the status of these ITAAC can be found by selecting the link 
``ITAAC Status Report'' on the NRC's websites: https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/col-holder/vog3.html and https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/new-reactors/col-holder/vog4.html.
    This notice fulfills the NRC staff's obligations under 10 CFR 
52.99(e)(1) to publish a notice in the Federal Register of the NRC 
staff's determination of the successful completion of inspections, 
tests, and analyses.

    Note: As of August 12, 2021, NRC staff rescinds its previous 
determination of the successful completion of ITAAC 2.5.05.03b (570) 
for both VEGP Units 3 and 4 due to the subsequent determination by 
NRC staff that this ITAAC is not met for both units. The NRC's prior 
determination of the successful completion of ITAAC 2.5.05.03b (570) 
was originally published in the Federal Register (85 FR 67017) on 
October 21, 2020. The licensee will resubmit the ICNs related to 
ITAAC 2.5.05.03b (570) for both Units.
