SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: The FAA
invites public comment on the request
to release a 5.27 acre parcel of airport
property at the Malden Regional Airport
& Industrial Park (MAW) under the
provisions of 49 U.S.C. 47107(h)(2).
This is a Surplus Property Airport. The
City of Malden requested a release from
the FAA to sell the parcel to Walter
Spence for future development. The
FAA determined this request to release
and sell property at the Malden
Regional Airport & Industrial Park
(MAW) submitted by the Sponsor meets
the procedural requirements of the FAA
and the release and sale of the property
does not and will not impact future
aviation needs at the airport. The FAA
may approve the request, in whole or in
part, no sooner than thirty days after the
publication of this notice.
The following is a brief overview of
the request:
The Malden Regional Airport &
Industrial Park (MAW) is proposing the
release and sale of a parcel of airport
property containing 5.27 acres. The
release of land is necessary to comply
with Federal Aviation Administration
Grant Assurances that do not allow
federally acquired airport property to be
used for non-aviation purposes. The sale
of the subject property will result in the
land at the Malden Regional Airport &
Industrial Park (M) being changed from
aeronautical to non-aeronautical use
and release the lands from the
conditions of the Airport Improvement
Program Grant Agreement Grant
Assurances in order to sell the land. In
accordance with 49 U.S.C.
47107(c)(2)(B)(i) and (iii), the airport
will receive fair market value for the
property, which will be subsequently
reinvested in another eligible airport
improvement project for general
aviation use.
Any person may inspect, by
appointment, the request in person at
the FAA office listed above under
FOR
FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT
. In
addition, any person may request an
appointment to inspect the application,
notice and other documents determined
by the FAA to be related to the
application in person at the Malden City
Hall.

2021.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
:
Title: On-the-Job Training (OJT)
Program Report.
Background: The Findings in a
September 2011 Government
Accountability Office (GAO) Report
concerning FHWA’s administration of
the OJT requirements indicated that
FHWA needs to strengthen its
stewardship and oversite of the OJT
Program. Specifically, the GAO report
cited, ‘‘FHWA does not know what these
programs have accomplished or how
effectively these activities have
advanced the broader goal of bringing
underrepresented individuals into the
highway construction workforce,
because FHWA has performed only
limited assessments of these programs
over their nearly 40-year history.’’
The OJT regulations (23 CFR
230.111(a)) require State DOT recipients
to determine annually which contracts
should include Training Special
Provisions and the minimum number of
trainees or trainee hours to be specified
in those provisions. By delegated
authority from the FHWA Office of Civil
Rights (HCR), this information is
submitted by the State DOT to the
respective FHWA division office for
concurrence and approval of the total
number of training slots or hours. This
total number then becomes the State
DOT’s annual OJT program goal.
Once an OJT goal is set, the
regulations at § 230.111(b) require State
DOTs that do not meet their annual
goals to evaluate and report the reasons
for the shortfall and remedial steps to be
taken in the next calendar year. This
information is due to FHWA no later
than 30 days after the calendar year.
Notwithstanding these requirements,
there is no prescribed format for
reporting this information to FHWA, so
State DOT reports are varied. Further,
there is no general reporting
requirement that would allow HCR to
evaluate the effectiveness of the OJT
program nationally in meeting the
primary objective: To employ, train, and
upgrade minorities and women in the
highway construction trades. Without
any broader reporting requirement,
FHWA lacks the necessary data to
provide meaningful stewardship and
oversight or to measure the effectiveness
of OJT Programs nationally, as cited in
GOA’s 2011 Report. In addition, this
lack of data limits FHWA’s ability to
respond to requests from stakeholders,
including Congress, regarding program
accomplishments.
The information FHWA proposes to
collect in its OJT Program Report is
based on existing requirements found in
23 CFR 230, Subpart A; therefore, State
DOTs should have this information
readily available. Use of the OJT
Program Report is optional, and it will
be made available through the Civil
Rights Connect System currently used
by FHWA recipients.
Respondents: A maximum of fifty-
three recipients may respond using the
OJT Program Report provided by HCR.
Frequency: Every year by January
30th.
Estimated Average Burden per
Response: The estimated number of
hours for each of fifty-three (53)
recipients to compile and submit the
requested data is estimated to be not
more than four (4) employee hours
annually.
Estimated Total Annual Burden
Hours: Approximately 212 hours for
fifty-three (53) recipients annually.
Public Comments Invited: You are
asked to comment on any aspect of this
information collection, including: (1)
Whether the proposed collection is
necessary for the FHWA’s performance;
(2) the accuracy of the estimated
burdens; (3) ways for the FHWA to
enhance the quality, usefulness, and
clarity of the collected information; and
(4) ways that the burden could be
minimized, including the use of
electronic technology, without reducing
the quality of the collected information.
The agency will summarize and/or
include your comments in the request
for OMB’s clearance of this information
collection.
