This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.

Each year the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is required by the Write-Your-Own (WYO) program Financial Assistance/Subsidy Arrangement (Arrangement) to notify the private insurance companies (Companies) and make available to the Companies the terms for subscription or re-subscription to the Arrangement. In keeping with that requirement, this notice provides the terms to the Companies to subscribe or re-subscribe to the Arrangement.Start Further Info

Under the Arrangement, approximately 90 private sector property insurers issue flood insurance policies and adjust flood insurance claims under their own names based on the Arrangement with the Federal Insurance Administration (FIA) (44 CFR part 62, appendix A). The WYO insurers receive an expense allowance and remit the remaining premium to the Federal Government. The Federal Government pays WYO insurers for flood losses and pays loss adjustment expenses based on a fee schedule. Litigation costs, including court costs, attorney fees, judgments, and settlements, are paid by FIA based on submitted documentation. The Arrangement provides that under certain circumstances reimbursement for litigation costs will not be made. The complete Arrangement is published in 44 CFR part 62, appendix A. Each year FEMA is required to publish in the Federal Register and make available to the Companies the terms for subscription or re-subscription to the Financial Assistance/Subsidy Arrangement. During the 2006-2007 Arrangement year FEMA published (71 FR 54678, Sept. 18, 2006) notice of the changes to the Arrangement. No changes have been made to the Arrangement since the publication of the previous notice; however changes to the arrangement are contemplated for the future.
During September 2007, FEMA will send a copy of the offer for the 2007-2008 Arrangement year, together with related materials and submission instructions, to all private insurance companies participating under the current 2006-2007 Arrangement. Any private insurance company not currently participating in the WYO Program but wishing to consider FEMA's offer for 2007-2008 may request a copy by writing: Federal Emergency Management Agency, Mitigation Division, Attn: WYO Program, 500 C Street, SW., Washington, DC 20472, or contact Edward Connor at 202-646-3445 (facsimile), or Edward.Connor@dhs.gov (e-mail).Start Signature
