FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: To request a copy of the applicable forms or explanatory material, contact Janet Yandik at information in above paragraph. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR part 1320, which implement provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), require that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities (see 5 CFR 1320.8(d)). The Committee plans to submit a request to OMB to renew its approval of the collections of information concerning initial certification of nonprofit agencies serving people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities to participate in the Javits-Wagner-O’Day (JWOD) Program. The Committee is requesting a 3-year term of approval for these information collection activities. Federal agencies may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control numbers for these collections of information are 3037–0003 and 3037– 0004. The JWOD Act of 1971 (41 U.S.C. 46– 48c) is the authorizing legislation for the JWOD Program. The JWOD Program creates jobs and training opportunities for people who are blind or who have other severe disabilities. Its primary means of doing so is by requiring Government agencies to purchase selected products and services from nonprofit agencies employing such individuals. The JWOD Program is administered by the Committee. Two national, independent organizations, National Industries for the Blind (NIB) and NISH, help State and private nonprofit agencies participate in the JWOD Program. The implementing regulations for the JWOD Act, which are located at 41 CFR chapter 51, provide the requirements, procedures, and standards for the JWOD Program. Section 51–4.2 of the regulations sets forth the standards that a nonprofit agency must meet to qualify for participation in the JWOD Program. Under this section of the regulations, a nonprofit agency that would like to PO 00000 Frm 00008 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38097 participate in the JWOD Program must submit documentation (e.g., articles of incorporation and by-laws) demonstrating its nonprofit status and a completed copy of the appropriate Initial Certification form (Committee Form 401 or 402). This documentation helps the Committee determine whether the applicant nonprofit agency is appropriate for inclusion in the JWOD Program. This information collection renewal request seeks approval for the Committee to continue to collect the information required under 41 CFR 51– 4.2 of the regulations so that the Committee can continue to verify the appropriateness of nonprofit agencies that would like to participate in the JWOD Program. There are no changes to these current collections in this renewal request. Title: Initial Certification-Qualified Nonprofit Agency Serving People Who Are Blind, 41 CFR 51–4.2. OMB Control Number: 3037–0004. Form Number: Committee Form 401. Description of Respondents: Nonprofit agencies serving people who are blind that would like to participate in the JWOD Program. Annual Number of Respondents: About 2 nonprofit agencies serving people who are blind will annually request to be newly verified for participation in the JWOD Program. Total Annual Burden Hours: Burden is estimated to average 1 hour per respondent. Total annual burden is 2 hours. Title: Initial Certification—Qualified Nonprofit Agency Serving People Who Are Severely Disabled, 41 CFR 51–4.2. OMB Control Number: 3037–0003. Form Number: Committee Form 402. Description of Respondents: Nonprofit agencies serving people who are severely disabled that would like to participate in the JWOD Program. Annual Number of Respondents: About 30 nonprofit agencies serving people who are severely disabled will annually request to be newly verified for participation in the JWOD Program. Total Annual Burden Hours: Burden is estimated to average 1 hour per respondent. Total annual burden is 30 hours. We invite comments concerning this renewal on: (1) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of our agency’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be E:\FR\FM\01JYN1.SGM 01JYN1
