Notice of Availability of an Environmental Assessment on a Proposal To Award a Contract for New Low Security Beds to One Private Contractor To House Approximately 2,000 Federal, Low-Security, Adult Male, Non-U.S. Citizen, Criminal Aliens at a Contractor-Owned, Contractor-Operated Correctional Facility Under the CAR 15, Requirement B Initiative
Document Number: 2014-25513
Type: Notice
Date: 2014-10-31
Agency: Department of Justice
The U.S. Department of Justice, Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP) announces the availability of the Criminal Alien Requirement 15, Requirement B Environmental Assessment (EA) for the proposal to award one contract to house up to 2,000 federal, low-security, adult males, non-U.S. citizen, criminal aliens within one existing contractor-owned, contractor-operated facility. Background Information: Pursuant to Section 102, 42 U.S.C. 4332, of the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended, the Council on Environmental Quality Regulations for Implementing NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500-1508), and the BOP Procedures for Implementing NEPA (28 CFR part 61, Appendix A), the BOP prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) to analyze the impacts of awarding one contract to house up to 2,000 low-security, adult male, non-U.S. citizen, criminal aliens within one existing contractor-owned and contractor-operated correctional facility. It is anticipated that the number of inmates will continue to rise for several reasons. Federal court sentencing guidelines are resulting in longer terms of confinement for serious crimes. Moreover, there is an increase in immigration and offenders, along with a greater effort to combat organized crime and trafficking. As a result, existing BOP facilities are at capacity. In response, the BOP has focused on ways to reduce prison overcrowding by requesting additional contract beds for low security, adult male criminal aliens, expansion of current facilities, and building and operating new medium and high security facilities. The purpose of the project is to acquire additional bed space to address the need to reduce overcrowding in existing BOP facilities as a result of increases in convictions and sentence terms. The BOP requires flexibility in managing existing low-security bed space as well as the anticipated future needs for low-security bed space. Use of an existing contractor-owned and operated correctional facility provides the BOP the flexibility needed to meet population capacity needs in a timely manner, conform to federal law, and maintain fiscal responsibility while successfully meeting the mission of the BOP. The process to identify contracting opportunities for securing additional inmate bed space in support of the increasing needs of the BOP involved the BOP advertising for interested vendors to respond to the request for proposal (RFP) with options for meeting the requirements. Based on the responses to the solicitation the BOP had four potential alternatives. The solicitation RFP-PCC-0022 (CAR 15 Requirement B) identified the evaluation criteria under which each offeror's proposal would be considered and evaluated. The non-price based evaluation criteria that consist of the following in descending order of importance:
Schedules of Controlled Substances: Removal of Naloxegol From Control
Document Number: 2014-25685
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-29
Agency: Department of Justice
The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) proposes to remove naloxegol ((5[alpha],6 [alpha])-17-allyl-6-((20-hydroxy-3,6,9,12,15,18- hexaoxaicos-1-yl)oxy)-4,5-epoxymorphinon-3,14-diol) and its salts from the schedules of the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This scheduling action is pursuant to the CSA which requires that such actions be made on the record after opportunity for a hearing through formal rulemaking. Naloxegol is currently a schedule II controlled substance because it can be derived from opium alkaloids. This action would remove the regulatory controls and administrative, civil, and criminal sanctions applicable to controlled substances, including those specific to schedule II controlled substances, on persons who handle (manufacture, distribute, reverse distribute, dispense, conduct research, import, export, or conduct chemical analysis) or propose to handle naloxegol.

Rules of Practice in Explosives License and Permit Proceedings (2007R-5P); Revisions Reflecting Changes Consistent With the Homeland Security Act of 2002
Document Number: 2014-23932
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2014-10-07
Agency: Department of Justice, Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives
The Department of Justice proposes to codify the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms, and Explosives (ATF) procedures and practices in connection with the disapproval of initial applications, denials of renewal, and revocations of explosives licenses or permits. The proposed regulations will be codified in a new part entitled ``Rules and Practice in License and Permit Proceedings.'' The proposed regulations are based upon the regulations that ATF relied upon prior to its transfer from the Department of the Treasury to the Department of Justice. Additionally, the Department proposes minor revisions to regulations governing administrative proceedings related to the denial, suspension, or revocation of a license, and the imposition of a civil fine under Federal firearms law to reference regulations under ATF authority. These proposed revisions remove all references to statutes, regulations, positions, and other terms that are applicable only to the Department of the Treasury. These revisions reflect ATF's position as a regulatory and enforcement agency under the Department of Justice and are consistent with the proposed regulations governing administrative hearing processes for explosives licenses and permits.
