Agency: Maritime Administration, Department of Transportation
The Maritime Administration (MARAD) and the United States Coast Guard (USCG) encourage parties planning to submit an application for a license to own, construct, and operate a deepwater port under the Deepwater Port Act of 1974 (DWPA) to meet with MARAD and USCG staff at least six months in advance of submitting an application in order to provide an overview of their proposed project, to discuss the details of the federal and state application and licensing process, and to introduce key personnel. As the application is developed, additional status meetings/work sessions prior to submittal are also encouraged to review progress and to address questions. At least two weeks prior to application submittal, the applicant and the USCG selected third party environmental contractor should meet with MARAD and USCG in a final pre-application project kick-off meeting to ensure all parties understand the project, review process, and roles and responsibilities, and are prepared for the application distribution for completeness review and scoping preparation.
