Download as PDF 56256 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 193 / Friday, October 8, 2021 / Notices NMFS finds this application warrants further consideration based on a preliminary review. Possible conditions the agency may impose on this permit, if it is granted, include but are not limited to, a prohibition on conducting sampling activities within marine protected areas, marine sanctuaries, or special management zones, without additional authorization, and requiring compliance with best practices in the event of interactions with any protected species. NMFS may also require annual reports summarizing the amount of shark-depredated carcasses harvested during the period of effectiveness of any issued EFP. NMFS requires that all federally permitted charter vessels participating under this EFP are compliant with all legal requirements, including the Southeast For-Hire Electronic Reporting Program. Additionally, NMFS would require any sea turtles taken incidentally during the course of the activities to be handled with due care to prevent injury to live specimens, observed for activity, and returned to the water. A final decision on issuance of the EFP will depend on NMFS’ review of public comments received on the application, consultations with the affected state, the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council, and the U.S. Coast Guard, and a determination that it is consistent with all applicable law.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This request is for a revision and extension of a currently 
approved

information collection. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric 
Administration's Coastal Ocean Program (COP), now known as the 
Competitive Research Program (CRP) under the National Centers for 
Coastal Ocean Science, provides direct financial assistance through 
grants and cooperative agreements for research supporting the 
management of coastal ecosystems and the NOAA RESTORE Science Program 
(RSP). The statutory authority for COP is Public Law 102-567 Section 
201 (Coastal Ocean Program). NOAA was authorized to establish and 
administer the Restore Science Program, in consultation with the U.S. 
Fish and Wildlife Service, by the Resources and Ecosystems 
Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies (RESTORE) 
of the Gulf States Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112-141, Section 1604). 
Identified in the RESTORE Act as the Gulf Coast Ecosystem restoration 
Science, Observation, Monitoring, and Technology Program, the Program 
is commonly known as the NOAA RESTORE Science Program. In addition to 
standard government application requirements, applicants for financial 
assistance are required to submit a project summary form, current and 
pending form, and a key contacts form for both programs. CRP recipients 
are required to file annual progress reports and a project final report 
using CRP formats. The RSP are required to file semi-annual progress 
reports, a final report, and a Gantt chart showing project milestones 
using RSP formats. All of these requirements are needed for better 
evaluation of proposals and monitoring of awards.
    Several revisions are being requested for this information 
collection. The approved annual and final reports for CRP will be 
revised to include the request for publication digital object 
identifiers (DOIs). The RSP semi-annual and final reports will be 
revised to include end-user details. Finally, the Current and Pending 
Support form is being updated to require applicants disclose all 
sources of current and pending research support, contractual or 
otherwise, direct and indirect, including current and pending private 
and public sources of funding or income, both foreign and domestic. 
Other support should include all resources made available to a Covered 
Person in support of and/or related to all of their professional 
research and development efforts, including resources provided directly 
to the Covered Person rather than through the research institution, and 
regardless of whether they have monetary value (e.g., even if the 
support received is only in-kind, such as office/laboratory space, 
equipment, supplies, or employees). This should include resource and/or 
financial support from all foreign and domestic entities, including but 
not limited to, gifts provided with terms or conditions, financial 
support for laboratory personnel, and participation of student and 
visiting researchers supported by other sources of funding.
