Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Collection; Comment Request, 55222-55223 [06-7888]

Download as PDF 55222 Federal Register / Vol. 71, No. 183 / Thursday, September 21, 2006 / Notices easier to understand. At this time, the MSPB is requesting public comments on the revised MSPB Form 185, which is available for review on the MSPB Web site at http://mspb.gov/ headlinespage.html. In addition to soliciting comments on the changes to the Appeal Form, we are also soliciting comments on the public reporting burden. Comments must be received on or before November 20, 2006. DATES: Submit comments to the Office of the Clerk of the Board, Merit Systems Protection Board, 1615 M Street, NW., Washington, DC 20419. Because of possible mail delays, respondents are encouraged to submit comments by e-mail to mspb@mspb.gov or by facsimile (fax) transmittal to (202) 653–7130. ADDRESSES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Office of the Clerk of the Board, 1615 M Street, NW., Washington, DC 20419; telephone (202) 653–7200; facsimile (fax) (202) 653–7130; e-mail to mspb@mspb.gov. Persons without Internet access may request a paper copy of the MSPB Appeal Form from the Office of the Clerk. The current version of the MSPB Appeal Form was approved by OMB, in accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act, in July 2003. At the same time, OMB approved the Board’s use of e-Appeal, the MSPB’s Web-based system for filing appeals online (https://e-appeal.mspb.gov). Once OMB has approved the changes to the paper-based form as described below, the MSPB will incorporate these changes into e-Appeal. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Social Security Numbers In Part 1 of the revised Appeal Form, each appellant is required to provide the last four digits of his or her Social Security number. The instructions for this item state as follows: ‘‘The Merit Systems Protection Board requires that you provide it with the last four digits of your Social Security number. This information will be used solely for identification purposes in the processing of your appeal. Failure to provide this information may result in the delay or non-processing of your appeal.’’ The reason for requiring this information is to ascertain whether an appellant has filed previous appeals with the MSPB that may affect the processing of the new appeal. Because of the similarity of names and the possibility of name changes, and because appellants sometimes use nicknames instead of formal names, it can be difficult to determine whether the person who has filed a new appeal is the same person who filed one or more previous Board appeals. Although requiring the last four digits of the appellant’s Social Security number will not result in certainty as to the filer’s identity, it will give the MSPB more assurance in this regard. Section 7(a) of the Privacy Act of 1974 provides that it is unlawful for a federal agency to ‘‘deny to any individual any right, benefit, or privilege provided by law because of such individual’s refusal to disclose his social security account number.’’ Because federal law provides federal employees the right to file appeals with the MSPB, that right cannot be conditioned on the individual’s providing the MSPB with his or her Social Security number. According to a Policy Analyst with the Information Policy and Technology Branch of the OMB, OMB takes the position that the last four digits of an individual’s Social Security number do not constitute that individual’s Social Security number, and can be made mandatory. The Board will carefully safeguard the last four digits of Social Security numbers provided by appellants in MSPB proceedings. This information will not generally be disclosed to third parties. Estimated Reporting Burden In accordance with the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the MSPB is soliciting comments on the public reporting burden for this information collection. The public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to vary from 20 minutes to 4 hours, with an average of 60 minutes per response, including time for reviewing the form and instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering the data necessary, and completing and reviewing the collection of information. Specifically, the MSPB invites comments on: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of MSPB’s functions, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of the MSPB’s estimate of burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques, when appropriate, and other forms of information technology.

Introduction The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is considering the issuance of a license amendment to Byproduct Materials License No. 29– 30285–01. This license is held by SK Bio-Pharmaceutical R&D Center (the Licensee), for its SK Bio-Pharmaceutical R&D Center, located at 140A New Dutch Lane in Fairfield, New Jersey (the Facility). Issuance of the amendment would authorize release of ‘‘the Facility’’ for unrestricted use. The Licensee requested this action in a letter dated June 29, 2006. The NRC has prepared an Environmental Assessment (EA) in support of this proposed action in accordance with the requirements of Title 10, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR), Part 51 (10 CFR Part 51). Based on the EA, the NRC has concluded that a Finding of No Significant Impact (FONSI) is appropriate with respect to the proposed action. The NRC plans to issue the amendment following the publication of this FONSI and EA in the Federal Register. Dated: September 13, 2006. Martha Morphy, Assistant Archivist for Information Services. [FR Doc. 06–7888 Filed 9–20–06; 8:45 am] Identification of Proposed Action The proposed action would approve the Licensee’s June 29, 2006, license amendment request, resulting in release of ‘‘the Facility’’ for unrestricted use. License No. 29–30285–01 was issued on June 19, 1996, pursuant to 10 CFR Part 30, and has been amended periodically since that time. This license authorized the Licensee to use unsealed byproduct material for purposes of conducting research and development activities on laboratory bench tops and in hoods and animal studies. The Facility is situated on 15,000 square feet, and consists of general offices and laboratories. The Facility is located in a mixed industrial and commercial area. Within the Facility, use of licensed materials was confined to 1,600 square feet of laboratories. On May 26, 2006, the Licensee ceased licensed activities and initiated a survey and decontamination of the Facility. Based on the Licensee’s historical knowledge of the site and the conditions of the Facility, the Licensee determined that only routine decontamination activities, in accordance with their NRCapproved, operating radiation safety procedures, were required. The Licensee was not required to submit a decommissioning plan to the NRC because worker cleanup activities and procedures are consistent with those approved for routine operations. The Licensee conducted surveys of the Facility and provided information to the NRC to demonstrate that it meets the BILLING CODE 7515–01–P NUCLEAR REGULATORY COMMISSION [DOCKET NO. 030–34092] Notice of Availability of Environmental Assessment and Finding of No Significant Impact for License Amendment to Byproduct Materials License No. 29–30285–01, for Termination of the License and Unrestricted Release of the SK BioPharmaceutical R&D Center’s Facility in Fairfield, NJ Nuclear Regulatory Commission.
