The Intergovernmental Personnel Act (IPA) mobility program provides for the temporary assignment of civilian personnel between the Federal Government and State and local governments; colleges and universities; Indian tribal governments; federally funded research and development centers; and other eligible organizations. The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) created a generic form, the OF– 69, for agencies to use as a template when collecting information for the IPA assignment. The OF–69 collects specific information about the agreement including: (1) The enrolled employee’s name, Social Security number, job title, salary, classification, and address; (2) the type of assignment; (3) the reimbursement arrangement; and (4) an explanation as to how the assignment benefits both SSA and the non-federal organization involved in the exchange. OPM directs agencies to use their own forms for recording these agreements. Accordingly, SSA modified the OF–69 to meet our needs, creating the SSA–187 Number of respondents Modality of completion for incoming employees and the SSA– 188 for outgoing employees. SSA collects information on the SSA–187 and SSA–188 to document the IPA assignment and to act as an agreement between the agencies. Respondents are personnel from State and local governments; colleges and universities; Indian tribal governments; federally funded research and development centers; and other eligible organizations who participate in the IPA exchange with SSA. Type of Request: Revision of an OMBapproved information collection.

SUMMARY: Program Overview The Department of State administers the Congressionally-mandated Diversity Immigrant Visa Program annually. Section 203(c) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) provides for a class of immigrants known as ‘‘diversity immigrants,’’ from countries with historically low rates of immigration to the United States. For fiscal year 2018, 50,000 diversity visas (DVs) will be available. There is no cost to register for the DV Program. Applicants who are selected in the lottery (‘‘selectees’’) must meet simple, but strict, eligibility requirements to qualify for a diversity visa. The Department of State determines selectees through a randomized computer drawing. Diversity visa numbers are distributed among six geographic regions, and no single country may receive more than seven percent of the available DVs in any one year. For DV–2019, natives of the following countries are not eligible to apply, because more than 50,000 natives of these countries immigrated to the United States in the previous five years: Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China (mainland-born), Colombia, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Haiti, India, Jamaica, Mexico, Nigeria, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, South Korea, United Kingdom (except Northern Ireland) and its dependent territories, and Vietnam. Persons born in Hong Kong SAR, Macau SAR, and Taiwan are eligible. E:\FR\FM\13SEN1.SGM 13SEN1

U.S. Department of State Advisory Committee on Private 
International Law (ACPIL): Public Meeting on Arbitration and 
Conciliation

    The Office of the Assistant Legal Adviser for Private International 
Law, Department of State, gives notice of a public meeting to discuss 
possible topics for future work related to arbitration or conciliation 
in the United Nations Commission on International Trade Law (UNCITRAL). 
The public meeting will take place on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 from 
10:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. EDT. This is not a meeting of the full 
Advisory Committee.
    UNCITRAL's Working Group II (Dispute Settlement) is currently 
working on the development of a convention and model legislative 
provisions on conciliated settlements that resolve international, 
commercial disputes. Once this negotiation is completed, however, it is 
unclear whether UNCITRAL should pursue additional work in the area of 
dispute settlement, and if so, what the new project should be. One 
topic that has been proposed by the International Academy of 
Construction Lawyers relates to the use of adjudication procedures in 
construction disputes. The purpose of the public meeting is to obtain 
the views of concerned stakeholders on (1) whether the Working Group 
should address construction contract adjudication, and (2) what, if 
any, other possible topics related to arbitration, conciliation, or 
other forms of dispute settlement merit attention by the Working Group.
    Time and Place: The meeting will take place on October 17, 2017, 
from 10:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. via a teleconference. Those who cannot 
participate but wish to comment are welcome to do so by phone or email 
to Tim Schnabel at SchnabelTR@state.gov or 202-776-8781.
    Public Participation: This meeting is open to the public. If you 
would like to participate by telephone, please email pil@state.gov to 
obtain the call-in number and other information.
