Upon completion of the Federal FEIS, the department may fund such action or grant such permit, as the case may be, and shall have no further obligation with respect to this Part, provided that the department has:
(1) given consideration to the Federal FEIS; and
(2) prepared a record of decision in accordance with section 15.9 of this Part.
(c) Where the department is notified by the lead agency that it has determined that the proposed action of the applicant may have a significant effect on the environment and a Federal FEIS is not being prepared, the obligation of the department shall be to review and comment upon the DEIS. Upon the submission to the department by the lead agency of the FEIS for the proposed action of the applicant, the department may fund such action or grant such permit, as the case may be, provided that the department has:
