Notice of Opportunity to Comment on a Shutdown/Default Order of Administrative Enforcement Actions

The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ, agency, or commission) staff is providing an opportunity for written public comment on the listed Shutdown/Default Order (S/DO). Texas Water Code (TWC), §26.3475 authorizes the commission to order the shutdown of any underground storage tank (UST) system found to be noncompliant with release detection, spill and overfill prevention, and/or, after December 22, 1998, cathodic protection regulations of the commission, until such time as the owner/operator brings the UST system into compliance with those regulations. The commission proposes a Shutdown Order after the owner or operator of a UST facility fails to perform required corrective actions within 30 days after receiving notice of the release detection, spill and overfill prevention, and/or after December 22, 1998, cathodic protection violations documented at the facility. The commission proposes a Default Order when the staff has sent an executive director's preliminary report and petition (EDPRP) to an entity outlining the alleged violations, the proposed penalty, the proposed technical requirements necessary to bring the entity back into compliance, and the entity fails to request a hearing on the matter within 20 days of its receipt of the EDPRP or requests a hearing and fails to participate at the hearing. In accordance with TWC, §7.075, this notice of the proposed order and the opportunity to comment is published in the Texas Register no later than the 30th day before the date on which the public comment period closes, which in this case is June 5, 2017. The commission will consider any written comments received and the commission may withdraw or withhold approval of an S/DO if a comment discloses facts or considerations that indicate that consent to the proposed S/DO is inappropriate, improper, inadequate, or inconsistent with the requirements of the statutes and rules within the commission's jurisdiction, or the commission's orders and permits issued in accordance with the commission's regulatory authority. Additional notice of changes to a proposed S/DO is not required to be published if those changes are made in response to written comments.

A copy of the proposed S/DO is available for public inspection at both the commission's central office, located at 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building A, 3rd Floor, Austin, Texas 78753, (512) 239-3400 and at the applicable regional office listed as follows.

The stakeholder meeting will be held on May 23, 2017, at 1:30 p.m., at the commission's central office located at 12100 Park 35 Circle, Building E, Room 201S, Austin, Texas.

While staff will review all comments received, the TCEQ will not be formally responding to any informal comments.

Notice of Public Hearing

on Proposed Medicaid Reimbursement Rates for the Home and Community-Based Services and Texas Home Living Waiver Programs.

Hearing. The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) will conduct a public hearing on May 17, 2017, at 9:00 a.m., to receive comment on proposed Medicaid reimbursement rates for Supported Home Living (SHL), SHL Consumer Directed Services, and SHL Community First Choice in the Home and Community-Based Services (HCS) Waiver Program, and Community Support Services (CSS), CSS Consumer Directed Services, and CSS Community First Choice in the Texas Home Living (TxHmL) Waiver Program.

The public hearing will be held in the Public Hearing Room of the Brown-Heatly Building, located at 4900 North Lamar Boulevard, Austin, Texas. Entry is through security at the main entrance of the building, which faces Lamar Boulevard. HHSC also will broadcast the public hearing; the broadcast can be accessed at http://legacy-hhsc.hhsc.state.tx.us/news/webcasting.asp. The broadcast will be archived and can be accessed on demand at the same website. The hearing will be held in compliance with Texas Human Resources Code §32.0282, which requires public notice of and hearings on proposed Medicaid reimbursements.

Proposal. HHSC proposes to decrease the rates for SHL, SHL Consumer Directed Services, SHL Community First Choice, CSS, CSS Consumer Directed Services, and CSS Community First Choice. TxHmL is projected to be carved-in to Medicaid managed care under STAR+PLUS effective September 1, 2018, and HCS is projected to be carved-in effective September 1, 2021. Currently, STAR+PLUS covers attendant and habilitation services for individuals with disabilities through STAR+PLUS Community First Choice including services for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD). When TxHmL and HCS are carved-in to Medicaid managed care, attendant care and habilitation services will be provided through STAR+PLUS Community First Choice. There will be no difference between individuals receiving additional waiver benefits and those receiving only Community First Choice services with respect to those services.

Currently, reimbursement rates for TxHmL CSS and HCS SHL services are higher than the STAR+PLUS Community First Choice rate and the costs of providing these services. In preparation for the managed care carve-ins of these services, HHSC is proposing rates that more closely align them with the STAR+PLUS Community First Choice rate. The reimbursement rates are proposed to be effective July 1, 2017.

Methodology and justification. The proposed reimbursement rates were calculated in accordance with Title 1 of the Texas Administrative Code (TAC) §355.9090, Reimbursement Methodology for Community First Choice, and §355.114, Consumer Directed Services Payment Option, and the proposed amendments to 1 TAC §355.112(l), Attendant Compensation Rate Enhancement, and §355.723, Reimbursement Methodology for Home and Community-Based Services and Texas Home Living Programs, published in the March 17, 2017, edition of the Texas Register (42 TexReg 1203).

Briefing package. A briefing package describing the proposed reimbursement rates will be available at http://www.hhsc.state.tx.us/rad/rate-packets.shtml on or after May 5, 2017. Interested parties may obtain a copy of the briefing package prior to the hearing by contacting the HHSC Rate Analysis Department by telephone at (512) 730-7401; by fax at (512) 730-7475; or by email to RAD-LTSS@hhsc.state.tx.us. The briefing package will also be available at the public hearing.

University of Houston System

Request for Proposal - Energy Consulting

The University of Houston System announces a Request for Proposal (RFP) for consultant services pursuant to Government Code, Chapter 2254, Subchapter B.

RFP783-17006, Energy Consulting

Purpose:

The University of Houston System is seeking energy consulting services to assist the System with preparation of a request for proposal (RFP) for an electricity supply contract and a RFP for a natural gas supply and transportation contract, cultivation of market interest in these RFPs, and evaluation of proposals received in response to these RFPs. The energy consultant will also assist the System in the evaluation and negotiation of an electricity supply contract and a natural gas supply and transportation contract with the awarded vendors, as well as management of these contracts.

Eligible Applicants:

Consulting firms with knowledge and experience in the electricity and natural gas supply markets, industry regulations and contracts, taxes, and fees as they relate to a State of Texas university.

Services to be performed including assisting the University of Houston System with:

• preparation of a request for proposal for electricity supply (Electricity RFP) and a request for proposal for natural gas supply and transportation (Natural Gas RFP)

• cultivation of market interest in the Electricity RFP and Natural Gas RFP

• evaluation of proposals received in response to the Electricity RFP and Natural Gas RFP, including vetting the proposals' pricing with the current market conditions to confirm the proposals are reasonable, evaluating financial condition of proposers, refreshing pricing, and requesting best and final pricing

• evaluation and negotiation of an electricity supply contract and a natural gas supply and transportation contract

• management of an electricity supply and a natural gas supply and transportation contract, including development and implementation of a price risk strategy, reviewing and auditing invoices for billing accuracy, providing advice on timing of price locks, reviewing proposed changes to electricity and natural gas contracts, assessing energy demand response incentive programs, providing quarterly reports and/or meetings on the status of the electricity and natural gas contracts, and recommendations for future actions under these contracts.

Finding by Chief Executive Officer, Renu Khator:

After reviewing and discussing this matter with the staff, an energy consultant is needed to ensure that the System obtains the most cost effective electricity supply contract and natural gas supply and transportation contract, and effectively manages these contracts. The System believes that using a third-party consultant, who has provided similar services for large and complex organizations similar in context and size to the University of Houston System, will provide the greatest benefit. The expertise needed for this consultation is complex and requires a comprehensive knowledge of the electricity and natural gas markets, as well as the industry regulations, taxes and fees that apply to State of Texas universities. Currently, our Facilities Department does not have the market or industry expertise needed to ensure that the System negotiates and manages its electricity supply contract and natural gas supply and transportation contract in the most cost effective manner possible. Thus, it is necessary for the System to engage a consultant to provide these services.

Review and Award Criteria:

All proposals will be evaluated by appointed representatives of the University in accordance with the following procedures:

1. Purchasing will receive and review each RFP proposal to ensure it meets the requirements of the RFP. Qualified proposals will be given to the selection committee.

2. Each member of the selection committee will independently evaluate the qualified proposals according to the criteria in section IX of the RFP, except for price, and send their evaluations to Purchasing. Price will be evaluated by the Project Manager.

3. Purchasing will combine the committee's scores to determine which proposal received the highest combined score.

4. Purchasing will notify the respondent with the highest score that the University intends to contract with them.

Deadlines: UH System must receive proposals and HUB Subcontracting Plans (HSPs) on or before Monday, June 5, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. CDT.

Obtaining a copy of the RFP: Copies will be available on the Electronic State Business Daily (ESBD) under the "University of Houston System - 783" at http://esbd.cpa.state.tx.us/.

Title 23, United States Code, §134 and §135 require each designated MPO and the state, respectively, to develop a TIP and STIP as a condition to securing federal funds for transportation projects under Title 23 or the Federal Transit Act (49 USC §5301, et seq.). Section 134 requires an MPO to develop its TIP in cooperation with the state and affected public transit operators and to provide an opportunity for interested parties to participate in the development of the program. Section 135 requires the state to develop a STIP for all areas of the state in cooperation with the designated MPOs and, with respect to non-metropolitan areas, in consultation with affected local officials, and further requires an opportunity for participation by interested parties as well as approval by the Governor or the Governor's designee.
