The contractor which claimed a longterm reliance on Government sales of these stamps failed to provide the Committee with total sales data which would enable the Committee to assess the severity of impact of this Procurement List addition, despite being cautioned that the Committee would interpret a failure to provide data as an indication that the contractor did not consider the impact severe. As for this contractor’s claim that the nonprofit agency’s stamps do not meet Government specifications, the nonprofit agency has shown the Committee that its stamps do meet those specifications. The cumulative impact of Procurement List additions over the past three years on the contractor which objected to these impacts does not reach the level which the Committee normally considers to be severe adverse impact. As the two contractors which alleged impact on their suppliers or distributors, respectively, failed to provide data to support their claims, the Committee is unable to assess the claims and is accordingly persuaded that these impacts cannot be severe. The following material pertains to all of the items being added to the Procurement List. Regulatory Flexibility Act Certification I certify that the following action will not have a significant impact on a substantial number of small entities. The major factors considered for this certification were: 1.

VerDate Aug<31>2005 13:54 Oct 13, 2005 Jkt 208001 Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Burden: 148,028 hours. Number of Respondents: 97,650. Avg Hours per Response: 30 Minutes. Needs and Uses: The U.S. Census Bureau requests authorization from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to conduct the Wave 7 topical module interview for the 2004 Panel of the Survey of Income and Program Participation (SIPP). We are also requesting approval for a few replacement questions in the reinterview instrument. The core SIPP and reinterview instruments were cleared under Authorization No. 0607– 0905. The SIPP is designed as a continuing series of national panels of interviewed households that are introduced every few years, with each panel having durations of 3 to 4 years. The 2004 Panel is scheduled for four years and will include twelve waves of interviewing. All household members 15 years old or over are interviewed a total of twelve times (twelve waves), at 4-month intervals, making the SIPP a longitudinal survey. The survey is molded around a central ‘‘core’’ of labor force and income questions that remain fixed throughout the life of a panel. The core is supplemented with questions designed to answer specific needs. These supplemental questions are included with the core and are referred to as ‘‘topical modules.’’ The topical modules for the 2004 Panel Wave 7 are Informal Caregiving, Retirement and Pension Plan Coverage, Annual Income and Retirement Accounts, and Taxes. The Informal Caregiving and Retirement and Pension Plan Coverage topical modules were previously conducted in the SIPP 2001 Panel Wave 7 instrument. The Annual Income and Retirement Accounts and Taxes topical modules were previously conducted in the SIPP 2004 Panel Wave 4 instrument. Wave 7 interviews will be conducted from February 2006 through May 2006. Data provided by the SIPP are being used by economic policymakers, the Congress, state and local governments, and Federal agencies that administer social welfare or transfer payment programs, such as the Department of Health and Human Services and the Department of Agriculture. The SIPP represents a source of information for a wide variety of topics and allows information for separate topics to be integrated to form a single and unified database so that the interaction between tax, transfer, and other government and private policies can be examined. Government domestic policy PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60063 formulators depend heavily upon the SIPP information concerning the distribution of income received directly as money or indirectly as in-kind benefits and the effect of tax and transfer programs on this distribution. They also need improved and expanded data on the income and general economic and financial situation of the U.S. population. The SIPP has provided these kinds of data on a continuing basis since 1983, permitting levels of economic well-being and changes in these levels to be measured over time. Monetary incentives to encourage nonrespondents to participate is planned for all waves of the 2004 SIPP Panel. Affected Public: Individuals or households. Frequency: Every 4 months.
