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 PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Information Collection Requirement Purpose of Data Collection As prescribed by the President in Homeland Security Presidential Directive 7 (HSPD–7), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was tasked to protect our nation’s critical infrastructure and key resources (CI/ KR). Through the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP), DHS gives a guidance and direction as to how the Nation will secure its infrastructure. Furthermore, HSPD–7 and the NIPP assigned the responsibility for infrastructure security in the transportation sector to TSA. To this effect, the NIPP further tasks each sector to build security partnerships, set security goals and to measure their effectiveness. Through its Corporate Security Review Program, TSA has conducted reviews of numerous pipeline systems in which various aspects of each company’s security program are analyzed. Through this review process, TSA has determined that improved security awareness training for pipeline company employees would be useful. The OMB control number assigned to the Corporate Security Review Program is 1652–0036. To increase the security awareness levels across the pipeline industry, TSA plans to develop and distribute a Security Awareness Training compact disk (CD–1) to interested pipeline companies. In order to measure the effectiveness of CD–1 on raising company security awareness, TSA will solicit voluntary feedback from pipeline companies seeking to utilize the CD–1. In order to participate, interested companies may respond to TSA’s announcements regarding the CD–1 availability and ordering instructions through all applicable pipeline industry Web sites. The CD–1 training will be available to all pipeline companies upon request to TSA. Participation in the feedback survey will also be voluntary to those pipeline companies that requested and received the CD. TSA will collect the feedback regarding CD–1 performance via online survey, which will be managed by a contracted third-party survey company. The survey results will be used to guide TSA on future pipeline transportation security initiatives. TSA plans to conduct the data collection over a twoto three-year period in order to allow for E:\FR\FM\31JAN1.SGM 31JAN1 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 20 / Wednesday, January 31, 2007 / Notices maximum distribution and use of CD– 1 throughout the industry, and for participating companies to complete full training cycles. mstockstill on PROD1PC62 with NOTICES Description of Data Collection TSA will ask participating companies that complete the Security Awareness Training CD–1, to log on to a TSAmanaged secure Web site to provide feedback on the effectiveness of the training. Respondent companies may respond with feedback in one of two ways: (1) They may choose to submit one subjective, corporate response as to the employee participation levels or effectiveness of the CD–1 (i.e., the CD– 1 significantly increased the security awareness levels for a majority of Company X’s employees); or (2) they may provide objective information based on their company’s own survey of its employees. For metrics purposes, TSA will also request that participating companies provide the total number of company employees, the number of employees who have completed the CD– 1 training, and the numbers of projected employees that will complete the training in the future. In many cases, a single company may own more than one pipeline transmission or local distribution system, thus, a single CD– 1 and corresponding effectiveness survey responses may represent more than one individual pipeline system. In order to discern the total number of pipeline companies utilizing the CD–1, TSA will inquire as to the number of individual pipeline systems that will be using the CD–1, in the event a parent company is requesting the CD. However, because participation in the CD–1 training and providing feedback in voluntary (that is, some companies that may utilize the CD–1 may not provide feedback), the TSA metrics will be based solely on companies that provide feedback. In order for interested companies to submit information, TSA will set up a separate file for each company on the secure Web site into which each company can provide feedback. TSA will provide each company or individual pipeline system with a password in order to access their individual company or system file. Companies/individual systems may access and update the information contained within their file at any time. The name of the participation company or point or contact information will be collected only for the purpose of setting up the company feedback file and for identify verification when companies log onto the Web site. VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:08 Jan 30, 2007 Jkt 211001 Use of Results The primary use of this information is to allow TSA to assess the effect of the CD–1 project on raising the baseline level of security awareness within the pipeline industry. The secondary purpose of this information is for TSA to obtain, based on individual company input, an indication of CD–1 user participation and employee participation levels throughout the pipeline industry. Frequency Most companies administer their security awareness training curriculum on an annual or biannual cycle. Therefore, a company would provide TSA sufficient feedback approximately every two years. Typically, companies will generate quarterly or annual reports on employee training progress. Thus, companies may submit updated feedback between one and four times per year, which TSA equates to an average frequency for this collection of two times per year. The time companies expend to respond to this collection will vary slightly depending on whether a company chooses to submit an overall company subjective opinion response provided by a knowledgeable corporate official, or an objective response based on results of its own training feedback survey. However, if a company chooses to submit one overall company opinion, it is likely that a person with some familiarity with the company’s security posture will be responsible for providing the feedback survey. Regardless of whether a company submits an objective response based on the results of its own training course survey, or an opinion of one corporate official, the only time expenditure required would result from electronically entering the requested information on the TSA survey Web site. This is because the information gathered will already be in the possession of the company and therefore, impart no additional burden on the respondent. Out of approximately 2,200 individual pipeline companies, TSA estimates that on an annual basis an average of 300 companies will provide feedback on the CD–1. TSA estimates the average hour burden per response per pipeline company or system will be approximately 20 minutes. Assuming that, on average, a company will update their feedback twice per year, TSA estimates the total annual hour burden will be 40 minutes per pipeline company or system. Therefore, TSA estimates the total annual hour burden will be approximately 200 hours per PO 00000 Frm 00051 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 4527 year for all pipeline industry participants [300 companies × 40 minutes = 200 hours].

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

Information Collection Requirement

Purpose of Data Collection

    As prescribed by the President in Homeland Security Presidential 
Directive 7 (HSPD-7), the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) was 
tasked to protect our nation's critical infrastructure and key 
resources (CI/KR). Through the National Infrastructure Protection Plan 
(NIPP), DHS gives a guidance and direction as to how the Nation will 
secure its infrastructure. Furthermore, HSPD-7 and the NIPP assigned 
the responsibility for infrastructure security in the transportation 
sector to TSA. To this effect, the NIPP further tasks each sector to 
build security partnerships, set security goals and to measure their 
effectiveness. Through its Corporate Security Review Program, TSA has 
conducted reviews of numerous pipeline systems in which various aspects 
of each company's security program are analyzed. Through this review 
process, TSA has determined that improved security awareness training 
for pipeline company employees would be useful. The OMB control number 
assigned to the Corporate Security Review Program is 1652-0036. To 
increase the security awareness levels across the pipeline industry, 
TSA plans to develop and distribute a Security Awareness Training 
compact disk (CD-1) to interested pipeline companies. In order to 
measure the effectiveness of CD-1 on raising company security 
awareness, TSA will solicit voluntary feedback from pipeline companies 
seeking to utilize the CD-1.
    In order to participate, interested companies may respond to TSA's 
announcements regarding the CD-1 availability and ordering instructions 
through all applicable pipeline industry Web sites. The CD-1 training 
will be available to all pipeline companies upon request to TSA. 
Participation in the feedback survey will also be voluntary to those 
pipeline companies that requested and received the CD.
    TSA will collect the feedback regarding CD-1 performance via online 
survey, which will be managed by a contracted third-party survey 
company. The survey results will be used to guide TSA on future 
pipeline transportation security initiatives. TSA plans to conduct the 
data collection over a two- to three-year period in order to allow for

[[Page 4527]]

maximum distribution and use of CD-1 throughout the industry, and for 
participating companies to complete full training cycles.

Description of Data Collection

    TSA will ask participating companies that complete the Security 
Awareness Training CD-1, to log on to a TSA-managed secure Web site to 
provide feedback on the effectiveness of the training.
    Respondent companies may respond with feedback in one of two ways: 
(1) They may choose to submit one subjective, corporate response as to 
the employee participation levels or effectiveness of the CD-1 (i.e., 
the CD-1 significantly increased the security awareness levels for a 
majority of Company X's employees); or (2) they may provide objective 
information based on their company's own survey of its employees. For 
metrics purposes, TSA will also request that participating companies 
provide the total number of company employees, the number of employees 
who have completed the CD-1 training, and the numbers of projected 
employees that will complete the training in the future. In many cases, 
a single company may own more than one pipeline transmission or local 
distribution system, thus, a single CD-1 and corresponding 
effectiveness survey responses may represent more than one individual 
pipeline system. In order to discern the total number of pipeline 
companies utilizing the CD-1, TSA will inquire as to the number of 
individual pipeline systems that will be using the CD-1, in the event a 
parent company is requesting the CD. However, because participation in 
the CD-1 training and providing feedback in voluntary (that is, some 
companies that may utilize the CD-1 may not provide feedback), the TSA 
metrics will be based solely on companies that provide feedback.
    In order for interested companies to submit information, TSA will 
set up a separate file for each company on the secure Web site into 
which each company can provide feedback. TSA will provide each company 
or individual pipeline system with a password in order to access their 
individual company or system file. Companies/individual systems may 
access and update the information contained within their file at any 
time. The name of the participation company or point or contact 
information will be collected only for the purpose of setting up the 
company feedback file and for identify verification when companies log 
onto the Web site.

Use of Results

    The primary use of this information is to allow TSA to assess the 
effect of the CD-1 project on raising the baseline level of security 
awareness within the pipeline industry. The secondary purpose of this 
information is for TSA to obtain, based on individual company input, an 
indication of CD-1 user participation and employee participation levels 
throughout the pipeline industry.

Frequency

    Most companies administer their security awareness training 
curriculum on an annual or biannual cycle. Therefore, a company would 
provide TSA sufficient feedback approximately every two years. 
Typically, companies will generate quarterly or annual reports on 
employee training progress. Thus, companies may submit updated feedback 
between one and four times per year, which TSA equates to an average 
frequency for this collection of two times per year. The time companies 
expend to respond to this collection will vary slightly depending on 
whether a company chooses to submit an overall company subjective 
opinion response provided by a knowledgeable corporate official, or an 
objective response based on results of its own training feedback 
survey. However, if a company chooses to submit one overall company 
opinion, it is likely that a person with some familiarity with the 
company's security posture will be responsible for providing the 
feedback survey. Regardless of whether a company submits an objective 
response based on the results of its own training course survey, or an 
opinion of one corporate official, the only time expenditure required 
would result from electronically entering the requested information on 
the TSA survey Web site. This is because the information gathered will 
already be in the possession of the company and therefore, impart no 
additional burden on the respondent.
    Out of approximately 2,200 individual pipeline companies, TSA 
estimates that on an annual basis an average of 300 companies will 
provide feedback on the CD-1. TSA estimates the average hour burden per 
response per pipeline company or system will be approximately 20 
minutes. Assuming that, on average, a company will update their 
feedback twice per year, TSA estimates the total annual hour burden 
will be 40 minutes per pipeline company or system. Therefore, TSA 
estimates the total annual hour burden will be approximately 200 hours 
per year for all pipeline industry participants [300 companies x 40 
minutes = 200 hours].
