Agency Information Collection Activities: Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request, 44698-44699 [05-15286]

Download as PDF 44698 Federal Register / Vol. 70, No. 148 / Wednesday, August 3, 2005 / Notices The recent discovery of many objects beyond Neptune in the Kuiper Belt has opened another dimension for this mission of exploration. KBOs, in stable and well-defined orbits that have never taken them close to the Sun, are likely to be remnants of solar system formation and may hold clues to the birth of the planets. Knowledge gained from close examination of objects in the Kuiper Belt would be of great value in developing theoretical models of the evolution and destiny of the solar system. The Proposed Action consists of continuing preparations for and implementing the New Horizons mission. The New Horizons spacecraft would be launched on an Atlas V 551 from CCAFS in January–February 2006. This launch opportunity represents the best opportunity for achieving the timecritical science objectives at Pluto and Charon. A backup launch opportunity could occur in February 2007 with arrival at Pluto in 2019 or 2020 depending upon the exact date of launch. Accordingly, the only alternative that was evaluated is the No Action alternative. For the New Horizons missions, the potentially affected environment for a normal launch includes the area at and in the vicinity of the launch site, CCAFS in Florida. The environmental impacts of a normal launch of the mission for the Proposed Action would be associated principally with the exhaust emissions from the Atlas V launch vehicle. These effects would include: (1) Short-term impacts on air quality within the exhaust cloud and near the launch pad, and (2) the potential for acidic deposition on the vegetation and surface water bodies at and near the launch complex, particularly if rain occurs shortly after launch. Potential launch accidents could result in the release of some of the radioactive material on board the spacecraft. The spacecraft would have one RTG that uses plutonium dioxide to provide electrical power. The radioisotope inventory of the RTG would total up to approximately 124,000 curies of plutonium. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), in cooperation with NASA, has performed a risk assessment of potential accidents for the New Horizons mission. This assessment used a methodology refined through applications to the Galileo, Ulysses, Cassini, and Mars Exploration Rover missions, and incorporates results of safety tests on the RTG and an evaluation of the January 17, 1997, Delta II accident at CCAFS. DOE’s risk assessment for this mission indicates that in the event of a launch VerDate jul<14>2003 15:22 Aug 02, 2005 Jkt 205001 accident the expected impacts of released radioactive material at and in the vicinity of the launch area, and on a global basis, would be small.

The EPA published its NOA in the Federal Register on February 25, 2005 (70 FR 9306). In addition, NASA published its NOA in local newspapers in the Cape Canaveral, Florida regional area, and held public meetings in Cocoa, Florida on March 29 and 30, 2005, during which attendees were invited to present both oral and written comments on the DEIS. No comments relevant to the DEIS were presented at either meeting. NASA received 967 written comment submissions, both hardcopy and electronic, during the comment period ending April 11, 2005.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: SUMMARY: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–13, May 22, 1995), this notice announces that the Office of Personnel Management (OPM) has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for the elimination of the optional form (OF) called Applying for a Federal Job (OF 510), the revision of the optional form called Optional Application for Federal Employment (OF 612), the specifications of the improved resume builder in the USAJOBS Web site (http:// www.USAJOBS.gov), and screen shots of the web pages within the USAJOBS Web site. OPM proposes eliminating the OF 510. The OF 510 is a brochure that has been used to provide guidance to the general public on how to apply for Federal jobs and how to construct a Federal resume (i.e., what necessary work, education, and other information applicants should include in their resumes or other applications). However, the same instructions contained in the OF 510 have been incorporated into the revised OF 612 and the USAJOBS resume builder. The instructions are also available through numerous other sources, including the USAJOBS Web site, that were not available at the time this brochure was PO 00000 Frm 00147 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44699 originally created. This proposed action will eliminate the need to print, maintain, and distribute an instructional guide in hard copy format now that the information can be readily updated and delivered by leveraging current web and other automated technology. The OF 612 is a form used to collect applicant qualifications information associated with vacancy announcements. The form provides necessary guidance to applicants so that they can be considered for employment when applying for Federal jobs. Presently the OF 612 is downloadable from OPM’s electronic forms page on the USAJOBS Web site (http:// www.opm.gov/forms) in fillable pdf format. The data collected are necessary for Federal agencies to evaluate applicants for Federal jobs under the authority of sections 1104, 1302, 3301, 3304, 3320, 3361, 3393, and 3394 of title 5, United States Code. OPM has reconstructed the resume builder in the USAJOBS Web site to be in line with the data elements collected in the revised OF 612. The resume builder contains the critical elements applied across the Federal government to assess an applicant’s qualifications as required under the aforementioned sections of 5 United States Code. The OF 612 and the resume builder in the USAJOBS Web site contain questions regarding the applicant’s education history, including dates of attendance, name, type and place of institution, and degrees earned. Due to the increasing number of claimed degrees earned from non-accredited or bogus institutions, commonly referred to as ‘‘diploma mills,’’ the revised OF 612 and the USAJOBS resume ask applicants to list only degrees from schools that were accredited by accrediting institutions recognized by the U.S. Department of Education or other education that meets the provisions of OPM’s Operating Manual at www.opm.gov/qualifications/SEC–II/ s2–e4.htm. The revised OF 612 and resume builder also advise applicants not to list education from degrees based solely on life experiences, or obtained from schools with little or no academic standards. The USAJOBS Web site is the Federal Government’s official one-stop source for Federal jobs and employment information. USAJOBS is operated by OPM and provides job vacancy information, employment fact sheets, job applications/forms, and on-line resume development. Job seekers may create a ‘‘My USAJOBS’’ account where they can create up to five resumes. These resumes are stored in one E:\FR\FM\03AUN1.SGM 03AUN1
