Operation Safe Commerce Cooperative Agreement Program; Notice Modifying the Delivery Instructions for Receipt of Applications Under the Operation Safe Commerce Cooperative Agreement Program
This notice modifies the delivery address and instructions previously established for receipt of applications under the Operation Safe Commerce Cooperative Agreement Program (Program Announcement #02MLPA0001) in 68 FR 5071, Jan. 31, 2003.
For applications sent by the U.S. Postal Service (USPS), the applicant should mail its application to: Mary Heying or Tony Corio, Attn.: Operation Safe Commerce Cooperative Agreement Program, Transportation Security Administration Headquarters, Office of Maritime and Land Security, West Tower, 9th Floor North, TSA-8, 400 Seventh Street, SW., Washington, DC 20590. An application received by the Office of Maritime Land Security after the closing date will not be considered unless it was sent by at least first-class mail no later than 5 calendar days before the closing date or was sent by first-class mail and it was determined by TSA that late receipt was due solely to mishandling after receipt at TSA. Proof of mailing consists of a legibly dated USPS postmark; a legible mail receipt with the date of mailing stamped by the USPS; or a dated shipping label, invoice, or receipt from a commercial carrier. A private metered postmark will not be considered as proof of mailing. (Note: The USPS does not always provide a dated postmark. Before relying on this method, the applicant should check with its local post office.)
For applications delivered by hand or by a next-day express delivery service, the application should be delivered to: Transportation Security Administration Headquarters, Office of Maritime and Land Security, West Tower, 9th Floor North, 701 South 12th Street, Arlington, VA 22202, Attn: Mary Heying, Workstation #926BN, 571-227-1252 or Tony Corio, Workstation #924DN, 571-227-1233. Hand delivered applications will be accepted between 8:30 am and 4 pm (EST) daily, except Saturdays, Sundays, and Federal holidays. An application that is hand delivered will not be accepted by the Office of Maritime Land Security after 4 pm (EST) on the closing date.
