ACTION: SUMMARY: The Federal Emergency Management Agency, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed continuing information collections. In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3506(c)(2)(A)), this notice seeks comments concerning the U.S. Fire Administration’s National Fire Academy Long-term Course Evaluation Forms. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The data collection from the long-term evaluation Number of respondents (A) FEMA forms forms—one for students and one for the student’s supervisor—will obtain course specific feedback regarding the impact of course content on job performance. This data is needed to improve instructional delivery and curriculum design. Demographic data are needed to identify differentials in course impact. The information collection also supports the Government Performance and Results Act and the Agency’s Programming, Planning and Budgeting reporting requirements. In an effort to help minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, the paper-based forms will be converted to an automated/ electronic format that will allow for the electronic submission of responses. As such the respondent universe will increase due to the on-line availability of the forms and linkage to the current end-of-course evaluation form. By using an automated process, it is expected that the estimated cost associated with the processing of the forms will decrease.
