DOT/OST RIN: 2105-AD83 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: +Prioritization and Allocation Authority Exercised By the Secretary of Transportation Under the Defense Production Act 
Abstract: This rulemaking would clarify the prioritization and allocation authorities exercised by the Secretary of Transportation under the Defense Production Act (DPA). The DPA is the Presidentīs primary authority to ensure timely availability of private sector resources for national defense. In addition to military and energy activities, the definition of "national defense" includes emergency preparedness activities conducted pursuant to title VI of The Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act and the protection and restoration of critical infrastructure. Under title I of the DPA, the President has the authority to require the acceptance and prioritization of contracts and orders--and to allocate materials, services, and facilities--in support of the national defense. Under section 201 of Executive Order 12919, the President has delegated these prioritization and allocation authorities to the Secretary of Transportation for all forms of civil transportation. In the 2009 DPA reauthorization legislation, Congress mandated that each Federal agency with delegated authority under title I of the DPA develop final rules that establish standards and procedures for implementing its delegated authority in emergency and nonemergency conditions. Additionally, Congress mandated that, to the extent practicable, the rules be consistent and unified. DOT is part of an interagency working group, along with the other delegated agencies, that is developing consistent unified rules.
