Purpose of Data Collection In order to provide a useful public Web site, TSA seeks to administer two data collections to obtain feedback concerning the usability, content, focus and satisfaction of passengers who use TSA’s Web site, titled ‘‘Web site Focus Groups’’ and ‘‘Web site Online Survey.’’ TSA will use the data collected through these collection methods to deliver effective and engaging information to meet customers’ needs and continuously improve TSA’s Web site usability. jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES Description of Data Collection TSA intends to collect data via the following instruments: (1) Web site Focus Groups. TSA intends to conduct focus groups in a metropolitan area in each of TSA’s three regions: East, Midwest, and West. TSA, through consultants, will administer the usability focus groups, one per region, by having volunteers use computers to access the TSA Web site under close supervision. Volunteers will provide both verbal and written feedback to the individuals administering the session. Participants will be selected randomly, at different travel times, from different locations, so that the sample includes individuals traveling throughout the day. Participation will be voluntary. TSA Headquarters will supply an independent, paid consultant to lead the user focus groups. These consultants will handle the data collected during focus groups and provide TSA with analysis of the results in order to ensure the results are free of bias and present a truly accurate representation of the focus group responses. A TSA representative will be present at each focus group to monitor the consultants responsible for conducting the focus groups and synthesizing the results, and to ensure the data collection is conducted in a professional manner and follows best practices for conducting focus group research. Focus groups will be conducted at various dates, times, and locations to provide a general representation of all customer preferences and not one particular group or subset of the population. TSA intends to conduct 15 user focus groups annually, each with a target of 10 total participant hours, based on an estimate of a 1 hour burden per respondent. TSA estimates a maximum total annual burden of 150 hours (10 participants times 15 focus group sessions equals 150 hours total). VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:01 Jun 08, 2006 Jkt 208001 There is no burden on those who choose not to be involved in the focus groups. (2) Web site Online Survey. TSA also will conduct voluntary Web site surveys to collect data for improved content and usability. The surveys will be available via the TSA Web site (http:// www.tsa.gov). Participation by Web site users will be voluntary. TSA Headquarters will provide a list of approximately 20 approved questions, from which the TSA Web Director will configure an online survey available to Web site users who choose to provide their feedback. Surveys will comprise an approximate five-minute burden per respondent and an aggregate burden of 34 hours per year, based on an estimated 400 online surveys voluntarily completed per year (400 surveys times 5 minutes per survey equals 2000 minutes total, which is then divided by 60 minutes, resulting in 34 hours total). There is no burden on users who choose not to participate. Use of Results TSA Headquarters will use the focus group and survey results to evaluate and improve Web site content and usability, both via formal, rigorous usability performance measurement, and via targeted responses to problems and areas of opportunity that are identified. TSA senior management, the TSA Web Director in the Office of Strategic Communication and Public Affairs, and the Office of the Chief Information Officer, will use the results of the Web site Focus Groups and the Web site Online Survey to create a Web site usability and utility index, i.e., a summary of performance measures. TSA will use this index to evaluate the impact of Web site content and layout as TSA makes further strides to address public demand for convenient access to information via the Web.

Persons who use a telecommunications device for the deaf (TDD) may call the Federal Information Relay Service (FIRS) at 1– 800–877–8330, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to contact Mr. Styduhar. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires that we provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of information to solicit comments on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper functioning of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of our estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions we use; (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information collected; and (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. BLM may authorize private landowners in western Oregon to transport their timber over BLMcontrolled roads under Title V of the Federal Land Policy and Management Act of 1976 (43 U.S.C. 1761). The logging road right-of-way permits that BLM issues are subject to the requirements of the O&C Logging Road Right-of-Way regulations (43 CFR subpart 2812). As a condition of each right-of-way permit, a permittee must provide us with a certified statement containing the amount of timber removed, the lands from which the timber was removed, and the BLM roads used to transport the timber. Permittees must submit this information on a quarterly basis using the Form OR– 2812–6, Report of Road Use. The fees we receive for road use contribute to the recovery of costs incurred in the construction of forest access roads. The fees we collect for road maintenance are reimbursements PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 for services we provide to maintain roads. If we did not require the collection of information included in the Repot of Road Use form, it would not be possible to determine payment amounts, ledger account status, or monitor compliance with the terms and conditions of the permit. The cost for services we provide would not be collected in a timely manner if we reduce the frequency of reporting. This has a direct effect on the ability of BLM to properly maintain its road system, protect the road investment, and provide safe and efficient access to the public lands. Based on our experience administering the activities described above, we estimate the public reporting burden for the information collected is 1 hour per response. The 400 respondents include individuals, partnerships, and corporations engaged to remove and transport timber and other forest products. The frequency of response is quarterly. We estimate 1,600 responses per year and a total annual burden of 1,600 hours. BLM will summarize all responses to this notice and include them in the request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. Dated: June 5, 2006. Ted R. Hudson, Bureau of Land Management, Information Collection Clearance Officer.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 5 CFR 1320.12(a) requires that we provide a 
60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning a collection of 
information to solicit comments on:
    (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the 
proper functioning of the agency, including whether the information has 
practical utility;
    (b) The accuracy of our estimates of the information collection 
burden, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions we 
use;
    (c) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information collected; and
    (d) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on

Federal and restricted Indian lands to submit Form 3160-5, Sundry 
Notices and Reports on Wells, in order to obtain authority to perform 
specific additional operations on a well and to report the completion 
of such work.
    BLM uses the information for inspection and reservoir management 
purposes. Technical data provide means to evaluate the appropriateness 
of specific drilling and completion techniques. The data enable us to 
monitor the engineering aspects of oil and gas production. We would 
lack the necessary information to monitor compliance of well activity

operators and operating rights owners of Federal and Indian (except 
Osage) oil and gas leases. The frequency of response varies depending 
on the type of activities or operations conducted. We estimate 34,000 
notices filed annually and a total annual burden of 14,167 hours.
