In the June 16, 2006, Federal Register (71 FR 34882-34883), we requested applications for designation to provide official services in the geographic areas assigned to the official agencies named above. Applications were due by July 14, 2006.
There were two applicants for the Sacramento area: California Agri and Mid-Iowa Grain Inspection, Inc. (Mid-Iowa); both are currently designated official agencies. Mid-Iowa withdrew its application. Frankfort, Indianapolis, and Virginia were the sole applicants for designation to provide official services in the entire area currently assigned to them, so GIPSA did not ask for additional comments on them.
We evaluated all available information regarding the designation criteria in Section 7(f)(l)(A) of USGSA (7 U.S.C. 79(f)) and, according to Section 7(f)(l)(B), determined that California Agri, Frankfort, Indianapolis, and Virginia are able to provide official services in the geographic areas specified in the June 16, 2006, Federal Register, for which they applied. You may obtain official services by calling the telephone numbers listed below.
