(4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: The National Corrections Reporting Program (NCRP) is the only national data collection furnishing annual individual-level information for State prisoners admitted or released during the year, those in custody at year-end, and persons discharged from parole supervision. The NCRP collects data on sentencing, time served in prison and on parole, offense, admission/release type, and demographic information. BJS, the Congress, researchers, and criminal justice practitioners use these data to describe annual movements of adult offenders through State correctional systems. Providers of the data are personnel in the State Departments of Corrections and Parole. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: BJS anticipates 41 respondents for report year 2006 with a total annual burden of 2,298 hours. Magnetic media or other electronic formats are expected from 40 respondents and 2 respondents are expected to report manually. The respondents who have an automated data system will require an estimated 24 hours of time to supply the information for their annual caseload and an additional 2 hours documenting or explaining the data. The estimate of respondent burden for these States includes time required for modifying computer programs, preparing input data, and documenting the tape format and record layout. The estimated average amount of time required to manually complete the NCRP–1A, NCRP–1B, and NCRP–1C questionnaires are 10 minutes, 5 minutes, and 3 minutes per inmate, respectively. The respondent burden is directly related to the number of cases reported. For 2000, the two manually reporting States submitted about 2,600 completed questionnaires for the NCRP– 1A; about 2,400 for the NCRP–1B; and about 400 for the NCRP–1C. The estimated total burden for these respondents who submitted data manually was 654 hours. We expect no additional manual reporters in the future; and we expect an insignificant VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:37 May 18, 2006 Jkt 208001 amount of increase in the number of prison admissions, prison releases and parole exits in the three States that currently report manually.

Congress designated these monies to ODEP to further the development of self-employment policy for individuals with disabilities. A critical element of this endeavor will be the generation of data and information to validate systems capacity-building strategies and systems change models for successfully increasing selfemployment opportunities for individuals with disabilities, to document the systems-related difficulties and challenges that may be encountered, and to develop and test mechanisms for addressing these challenges.

Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in 
accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. The proposed 
information collection is published to obtain comments from the public 
and affected agencies. This proposed information collection was 
previously published in the Federal Register Volume 71, Number 12, 
pages 3119-3120 on January 19, 2006, allowing for a 60 day comment 
period.
    The purpose of this notice is to allow for an additional 30 days 
for public comment until June 19, 2006. This process is conducted in 
accordance with 5 CFR 1320.10.
    Written comments and/or suggestions regarding the items contained 
in this notice, especially the estimated public burden and associated 
response time, should be directed to The Office of Management and 
Budget, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Attention 
Department of Justice Desk Officer, Washington, DC 20503. Additionally, 
comments may be submitted to OMB via facsimile to (202) 395-5806.
    Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected 
agencies concerning the proposed collection of information are 
encouraged. Your comments should address one or more of the following 
four points:

--Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary 
for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including 
whether the information will have practical utility;
--Evaluate the accuracy of the agencies estimate of the burden of the 
proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
--Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and
--Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are 
to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic 
submission of responses.
    Overview of this information collection:
    (1) Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently 
approved collection.
     (2) Title of the Form/Collection: National Corrections Reporting 
Program. The collection includes the forms: Prisoner Admission Report,

Release Report, Parole Release Report, Prisoner in Custody at Year-end.
    (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the 
Department of Justice sponsoring the collection: Form number(s): NCRP-
1A, NCRP-1B, NCRP-1C, and NCRP-1D. Corrections Statistics Unit, Bureau 
of Justice Statistics, Office of Justice Programs, United States 
Department of Justice.
     (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: The National Corrections Reporting Program 
(NCRP) is the only national data collection furnishing annual 
individual-level information for State prisoners admitted or released 
during the year, those in custody at year-end, and persons discharged 
from parole supervision. The NCRP collects data on sentencing, time 
served in prison and on parole, offense, admission/release type, and 
demographic information. BJS, the Congress, researchers, and criminal 
justice practitioners use these data to describe annual movements of 
adult offenders through State correctional systems. Providers of the 
data are personnel in the State Departments of Corrections and Parole.
     (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount 
of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: BJS anticipates 
41 respondents for report year 2006 with a total annual burden of 2,298 
hours. Magnetic media or other electronic formats are expected from 40 
respondents and 2 respondents are expected to report manually. The 
respondents who have an automated data system will require an estimated 
24 hours of time to supply the information for their annual caseload 
and an additional 2 hours documenting or explaining the data. The 
estimate of respondent burden for these States includes time required 
for modifying computer programs, preparing input data, and documenting 
the tape format and record layout.
     The estimated average amount of time required to manually complete 
the NCRP-1A, NCRP-1B, and NCRP-1C questionnaires are 10 minutes, 5 
minutes, and 3 minutes per inmate, respectively. The respondent burden 
is directly related to the number of cases reported. For 2000, the two 
manually reporting States submitted about 2,600 completed 
questionnaires for the NCRP-1A; about 2,400 for the NCRP-1B; and about 
400 for the NCRP-1C. The estimated total burden for these respondents 
who submitted data manually was 654 hours. We expect no additional 
manual reporters in the future; and we expect an insignificant amount 
of increase in the number of prison admissions, prison releases and 
parole exits in the three States that currently report manually.
    (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: There are an estimated 2,298 total burden hours 
associated with this collection.

Clearance Officer, United States Department of Justice, Policy and
