SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. Therefore, in preparation for OMB 
review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is 
soliciting comments to:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    1652-0032; Transportation Security Officer (formerly Screener) 
(TSO) Medical Questionnaire. Because Transportation Security Screeners 
were converted to Transportation Security Officers (TSOs) on February 
5, 2005, TSA is revising the title of this collection accordingly. TSA 
also is making other revisions to the form to ensure the proper 
information is collected in the most appropriate manner. With approval 
from OMB, TSA currently collects information via a TSO medical 
questionnaire, which assists the agency in ensuring that candidates 
under employment consideration for TSO positions meet the qualification 
standards to successfully perform the functions of the position. TSA 
uses this information to evaluate a candidate's physical and medical 
qualifications, including visual and aural acuity, and physical 
coordination and motor skills.
    TSA now seeks approval to revise its existing control number 
application to include additional medical forms which TSA candidates 
will bring with them to follow-up medical evaluations (should they be 
necessary) and which must be completed by the candidate's health care 
provider(s) and returned to TSA by facsimile. These forms are required 
in circumstances where additional medical information is needed to make 
a determination regarding the candidate's qualifications for the TSO 
job. For example, due to the physically demanding nature of the TSO 
job, it is important to ensure that individuals who have prior back 
injuries are evaluated thoroughly to ensure they can perform the TSO 
job safely and efficiently without excessive risk of accident or injury 
to themselves or others. This additional information is provided by the 
candidate's health care provider of choice and includes historical and

    A TSA contractor will facilitate receipt and processing of these

annual respondent population for this collection will be 22,800 health 
care providers and candidates, which includes 11,400 candidates and 
11,400 health care providers, nationwide. TSA estimates the total 
annual hour burden, in addition to the annual burden as a result of the 
TSO medical questionnaire, to be 6346 hours.
