Pursuant to the Federal Power Act, the Commission approves a revised Reliability Standard, PRC-005-3 (Protection System and Automatic Reclosing Maintenance), submitted by the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC). In addition, the Commission approves one new definition and six revised definitions referenced in the Reliability Standard, the assigned violation risk factors and violation severity levels, and NERC's implementation plan. Consistent with Order No. 758, the Reliability Standard requires applicable entities to test and maintain certain autoreclosing relays as part of a protection system maintenance program. However, to ensure that proper maintenance and testing is done for all parts of a reclosing relay scheme that can affect the reliable operation of the Bulk-Power System, the Commission directs that NERC develop a modification to the Reliability Standard to include maintenance and testing of supervisory relays.

In compliance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects, the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the National Institutes of Health (NIH), will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. Written comments and/or suggestions from the public and affected agencies are invited on one or more of the following points: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the function of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. To Submit Comments and for Further Information: To obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, submit comments in writing, or request more information on the proposed project, contact: Pothur Srinivas, Ph.D., Project Officer/ICD Contact, Two Rockledge Center, 6701 Rockledge Drive, Room 10188, MSC 10193, Bethesda, MD 20892, or call non-toll-free number (301) 435-0550, or Email your request to: srinivap@nhlbi.nih.gov. Formal requests for additional plans and instruments must be requested in writing. Comments Due Date: Comments regarding this information collection are best assured of having their full effect if received within 60 days of the date of this publication. Proposed Collection: Evaluation of the NHLBI Proteomics Centers Program: Qualitative Interviews 0925-New, National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI), the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Need and Use of Information Collection: The Proteomics Centers Program was established in 2010 with the goal of applying proteomic approaches to gain a better mechanistic understanding of the physiologic pathways underlying defined clinical conditions related to heart, lung, and blood diseases. The primary goal of the program is to help facilitate a better understanding of the underlying mechanisms in heart, lung, and blood diseases which could contribute to more effective diagnoses, risk stratification, intervention, and prevention. Given the rapid developments in proteomic technologies and approaches in the last five years, it is important to determine the extent to which the efforts of the centers have matured, leading to discovery of new targets for intervention and clinically actionable tool sets. An eighteen-month outcome evaluation will coincide with the completion of funding for the program. This information collection request is being made for one component of this evaluation: Semi-structured interviews with key informants across four targeted groups, internal and external to the program. The results of the evaluation will help determine the extent to which these desired outcomes were achieved as well as to inform future of proteomics research funding and commitments by the NHLBI. The key informant interviews are necessary to understand the perspectives of internal and external program stakeholders as it relates to the success, limitations, and opportunities that can shape future research funding. OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 48.
