SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: wwhite on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Background CIPSEA (Pub. L. 107–347, Title V) and the International Investment and Trade in Services Survey Act (Pub. L. 94–472, 22 United States Code (U.S.C.) 3101– 3108) allow BEA and BLS to share certain business data for exclusively statistical purposes. Section 524(d) of the CIPSEA requires us to publish a Federal Register notice announcing our intent to share data (allowing 60 days for public comment), since BEA respondents were required by law to report the data. Section 524(d) also requires us to provide information about the terms of the agreement for data sharing. For purposes of this notice, BEA has decided to group these terms by three categories. The categories are: • Shared data. • Statistical purposes for the shared data. • Data access and confidentiality. Shared Data BEA proposes to provide the BLS with data collected in the benchmark, VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:19 Mar 24, 2006 Jkt 208001 annual, and quarterly surveys of U.S. direct investment abroad, of foreign direct investment in the United States, and of U.S. international trade in services, as well as a survey of new foreign direct investments in the United States. BLS will use these data for statistical purposes exclusively. Statistical Purposes for the Shared Data Data collected in the benchmark and annual surveys of direct investment are used to develop estimates of the financing and operations of U.S. parent companies, their foreign affiliates, and U.S. affiliates of foreign companies; data collected in the quarterly direct investment surveys are used to develop estimates of transactions and positions between parents and affiliates; data collected in the new investments survey are used to develop estimates of new foreign direct investments in the United States; and data collected in the benchmark, annual and quarterly surveys of U.S. international trade in services are used to develop estimates of services transactions between U.S. companies and unaffiliated foreign parties. These estimates are published in the Survey of Current Business, BEA’s monthly journal; in other BEA publications; and on BEA’s Web site at https://www.bea.gov/. All data are collected under Sections 3101–3108 of Title 22, U.S.C. The data set created by linking these data with the data from the abovedesignated BLS surveys will be used for several purposes by both agencies, such as to develop detailed industry-level estimates of the employment, payroll, and occupational structure of foreignowned U.S. companies or of U.S. companies that own foreign affiliates, and to assess the adequacy of current government data for understanding the international outsourcing activities of U.S. companies. Data Access and Confidentiality Title 22, U.S.C. 3104 protects the confidentiality of these data. The data may be seen only by persons sworn to uphold the confidentiality of the information. Access to the shared data will be restricted to specifically authorized personnel and will be provided for statistical purposes only. Any results of this research are subject to BEA disclosure protection. All BLS employees with access to these data will become BEA Special Sworn Employees—meaning that they, under penalty of law, must uphold the data’s confidentiality. Selected NAPA employees will provide BEA with expertise on the aspects of the data collected in BEA surveys and in the PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15161 linked data set that may relate to offshoring; these NAPA consultants assisting with the work at BEA also will become BEA Special Sworn Employees. No confidential data will be provided to the NAPA. J. Steven Landefeld, Director, Bureau of Economic Analysis. [FR Doc.
