Written comments should be submitted not later
than two weeks after the member of the public has

wishes to offer comments—either the project

particular project. Written public comments will
be provided by the MDB Office to the U.S.
Government agencies participating in meetings of
the Working Group for Multilateral Assistance
(WGMA), which meetings are described in § 26.4(c).
The WGMA is an intergovernmental subcommittee of
the Development Coordination Committee whose
functions are set forth in the Presidential
announcement of May 19, 1978, Vol. 14, No. 20, p.

Documents. The WGMA meets to discuss the U.S.
position on upcoming MDB projects.
(ii) All written comments will be available for
inspection and copying in their entirety in the
Department of the Treasury Library, 1500
Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC ((202)
622-0990). Members of the public are advised that
they must make an appointment with the Treasury
Library before they visit, and that a charge
(currently 15 cents per page) is imposed for the
use of the library photocopier.
(2) Oral comments. Oral comments
from a member of the public may be made in
periodic meetings convened by the BIC. Information

Office will summarize and present such comments in
the WGMA meetings described in § 26.4(c).
(b) U.S. agency comments.
Comments from U.S. agencies shall be provided
through the WGMA.
(c) Consideration of comments.
The WGMA will consider all comments made by the
public and U.S. agencies. The WGMA may review a
project up to three times. The first review will
consider whether the project has been assigned the
appropriate environmental category by the MDB.
This review will take place as far in advance as
possible of Board consideration of the project.
The second review will consider the EIA Summary or
the EIA (or information discussed in §
26.5(b)(1) ), and comments received from the public
on such documentation. The third WGMA review,
which will take place shortly before Board
consideration of the project, will consider the
position of the U.S. Government on the
Title 31 published on 2012-07-01
