Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 41429-41430 [06-6390]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 140 / Friday, July 21, 2006 / Notices data collection among Federal government agencies. TRICARE contractors are required to maintain a computer listing of all providers that have submitted the appropriate authorization information and documentation. To avoid duplicate inquires, the contractors must search the computer provider listing before requesting documentation from providers. Since the providers affected by this information collection generally have not previously been eligible to be authorized providers, TRICARE contractors will have no information on file. The providers will have to submit the information requested on the data collection form (Application for TRICARE-Providers Status: Corporate Services Provider) in order to obtain provider authorization status under TRICARE. The information will usually be collected from each respondent only once. It is estimated that there will be approximately 200 applicants per year. TRICARE will request the provider authorization documentation and information when the provider asks to become TRICARE-authorized or when a claim is filed for a new provider’s services. If after a provider has been authorized by a contractor, no claims are filed during two-year period of time, the provider’s information will be placed in the inactive file. To reactivate a file, the provider must verify that the information is still correct, or supply new or changed information. The total annual reporting burden is estimated to be 200 hours.

ACTION: Notice of intent. AGENCY: SUMMARY: Pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) of 1969, as amended (42 U.S.C. 4321, et seq.), the Council on Environmental Quality (CEQ) Regulations for Implementing the Procedural Provisions of NEPA (40 CFR parts 1500–1508), and Air Force policy and procedures (32 CFR part 989), the National Guard Bureau is issuing this notice to advise the public of its intent to prepare an EIS to assess the potential environmental impacts that could result from an aircraft conversion and implementation of the proposed construction and demolition program for the Massachusetts National Guard at Westfield-Barnes Airport in Westfield, Massachusetts. Additionally, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Westfield-Barnes Airport, and the Massachusetts Aeronautics Commission (MAC) join the National Guard Bureau as cooperating agencies. The proposal consists of an aircraft conversion from 15 A–10 primary assigned aircraft (PAA) and 2 backup aircraft inventory (BAI) to 18 F–15 PAA and 2 BAI aircraft. This conversion is a result of the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC) Commission Final and Approved Recommendations. In association with the aircraft conversion, the current close air support mission associated with the A–10 aircraft would change to an air superiority/air sovereignty alert mission associated with the F–15 aircraft. As part of the aircraft conversion and mission change, the 104th Fighter Wing (104 FW) would have an increase of 139 full-time and 111 part-time authorized personnel; and the Army National Guard would have in increase of 25 fulltime and 274 part-time. To accommodate these changes, the Massachusetts National Guard proposes to implement several construction projects at their installation at Westfield-Barnes Airport, as well as to correct several existing facility deficiencies through modifications to existing facilities and construction of several new facilities. In addition to the proposed action, the no-action E:\FR\FM\21JYN1.SGM 21JYN1
