U.S. Department of State Advisory Committee on Private International Law: Working Group I of the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) Model Law on Procurement of Goods, Construction and Services
Document Number: E7-11596
Type: Notice
Date: 2007-06-15
Agency: Department of State
The Advisory Committee's study group is participating in an initiative by the United National Commission for International Trade Law (UNCITRAL) to revise the 1994 UNCITRAL Model Law on Procurement of Goods, Construction and Services (``Model Procurement Law''), and its Guide to Enactment, available at http://www.uncitral.org/uncitral/en/ uncitraltexts/procurementinfrastructure/1994Model.html. The UNCITRAL Model Procurement Law is not binding on the United States, but it is cited and relied upon in many other nations as a model procurement code. The reform effort regarding the Model Procurement Law is being undertaken by UNCITRAL's Working Group I, which has been meeting twice annually, in Vienna and New York, to develop new language for the UNCITRAL Model Procurement Law and the Guide to Enactment. The working papers that reflect this effort are gathered at the UNCITRAL Web site, at http://www.uncitral.org/uncitral/en/commission/workinggroups/ 1Procurement.html. As part of its broader effort to reform the UNCITRAL Model Procurement Law to reflect advances in electronic procurement, the UNCITRAL working group has made substantial progress in developing new provisions in the model law. At its May 2007 meeting in New York, the UNCITRAL working group addressed proposed provisions that would: (a) Set standards for the use of electronic communications in procurement under the UNCITRAL Model Procurement Law; (b) Describe when, and how, electronic reverse auctions might be used under the model law; and (c) Define rules for the use of indefinite-delivery, indefinite-quantity (``IDIQ'') contracts, generally referred to as ``frameworks agreements'' in the European Union and under the proposed changes to the Model Procurement Law. The provisions under consideration by the working group are described in, inter alia, working paper A/CN.9/WG.I/WP.51 (Mar. 13, 2007), available at the previously referenced Web site. A report on the May 2007 meeting is to be published by the UNCITRAL Secretariat at the same Web site. The Advisory Committee's study group will be holding a public meeting to review and discuss the proposed reforms to the UNCITRAL Model Procurement Law at The George Washington University Law School Faculty Conference Center, 5th Floor 2000 H Street, NW., Washington, DC on June 27, 2007 from 1 p.m. EST to 3 p.m. EST.

Amendment of the International Traffic in Arms Regulations: United States Munitions List
Document Number: E7-11012
Type: Rule
Date: 2007-06-07
Agency: Department of State
The Department of State is amending the International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR) by revising Note (1)(i) of U.S. Munitions List (USML) Category VIII(e) to add the term ``primary'' to references to a commercial standby instrument system. As a result, Category XII(d) and Category VIII(e) do not include quartz rate sensors if such items are integrated into and included as an integral part of a commercial primary or standby instrument system for use on civil aircraft prior to export or exported solely for integration into such systems. After this exclusion was instituted in 2004 for such standby systems, it became apparent that some primary systems also include the subject quartz rate sensors.

Exchange Visitor Program-Sanctions and Terminations
Document Number: E7-10505
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2007-05-31
Agency: Department of State
The U.S. Department of State (Department) is proposing to revise its regulations presently set forth at 22 CFR Part 62, Subpart D (Sanctions) and 22 CFR Part 62, Subpart E (Termination and Revocation of Programs). The revised Sec. 62.50 will retain many, but not all, of the provisions of the current regulations, and modifies the reasons for which sanctions may be imposed. One difference in the proposed regulation is the substitution of a panel of three Review Officers to conduct a ``paper review'' in lieu of a trial-type hearing. This streamlined review process will continue to provide full procedural due process rights. Subpart E, Sec. 62.60 proposes to amend existing regulations to provide for program termination in the case of failure to file an annual management audit, in program categories requiring such audits. A new Sec. 62.62 will provide for termination or denial of redesignation for an entire class of designated programs, if the Department determines that they compromise the national security of the United States, or no longer further the public diplomacy mission of the Department.

Date: 2007-05-31
Agency: Department of State
The Educational Information and Resources Branch, Office of Global Educational Programs, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (the Bureau) announces an open competition for a survey of International Educational Exchange Activity in the United States. Public and private non-profit organizations meeting the provisions described in Internal Revenue Code section 26 U.S.C. 501(c)(3) may submit proposals to conduct a statistical survey (census) of foreign nationals enrolled in institutions of higher learning in the United States. The survey must provide detailed individual student profile data and country-specific aggregate data that enumerate the numbers of foreign students and scholars from a given country affiliated with individual U.S. institutions. In addition, the report should include information about first-time enrollments to facilitate the analysis of enrollment trends. The survey, which should be conducted in the most cost-effective way possible, should identify the number of foreign students and scholars studying, conducting research, or teaching at all accredited universities and colleges in the United States during the 2007/2008 academic year (fall 2007 through summer 2008). Finally, the report should also include data about the number of American students studying abroad in credit-bearing programs of all types (year-long, semester, short-term and summer). Proposals should describe the methodology that will be used to collect the data and how the material will be analyzed and presented to the public. To the extent possible, cooperation is encouraged with the Department of Homeland Security on data comparison and sharing. Proposals must also include plans to establish an advisory board to provide assistance in identifying and framing policy issues that may need to be addressed by policy makers.
