Agency Information Collection Activities: Proposed Request and Comment Request, 12244-12248 [E7-4654]

Download as PDF 12244 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 50 / Thursday, March 15, 2007 / Notices a national securities exchange 16 and, in particular, the requirements of Section 6 of the Act.17 Specifically, the Commission finds that the proposed rule change is consistent with Section 6(b)(5) of the Act,18 which requires, among other things, that the rules of a national securities exchange be designed to promote just and equitable principles of trade, to remove impediments to and perfect the mechanism of a free and open market and a national market system, and, in general, to protect investors and the public interest. The Commission believes that the reduced alternate fee structure available through the Enterprise License Fee to eligible market data recipients should help to encourage a wider distribution of market data, especially to nonprofessional customers. The Commission notes that other industry organizations have similar fee structures which make various market data available to non-professional subscribers for a discounted fee relative to professional subscribers. For example, the Nasdaq Stock Market, Inc. (‘‘Nasdaq’’) has fees schedules that are higher for professional or corporate subscribers than for non-professional subscribers for UTP Level 1 fees, TotalView fees, and Nasdaq MAX fees.19 The Options Price Reporting Authority (‘‘OPRA’’), a national market system plan, also offers a reduced fee to nonprofessional subscribers, which is not available to professional options data subscribers.20 The Commission also believes that Phlx’s eligibility standards in determining the type of retail brokerdealers who can use the new Enterprise License Fee appears to be reasonably related to its purpose of providing a discount to those retail broker-dealers who have primarily a proprietary Internet based business to nonprofessional users.21 As noted above, rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES 16 In approving this proposed rule change, the Commission has considered the proposed rule’s impact on efficiency, competition, and capital formation. 15 U.S.C. 78c(f). 17 15 U.S.C. 78f. 18 15 U.S.C. 78f(b)(5). 19 Nasdaq offers a TotalView Non-Professional Enterprise Fee License to qualified firms that distribute TotalView to their non-professional users with whom they have a professional relationship. A description of Nasdaq market data fees is available at http://www.nasdaqtrader.com/trader/ mds/nasdaqother/pricing.stm (last visited on January 17, 2007). 20 A description of OPRA market data fees is available at http://www.opradata.com/pdf/ prof_pub_fee_schd_revised.pdf (last visited on January 17, 2007). 21 See supra notes 12–15 and accompanying text for eligibility standards for the Enterprise License Fee. VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:20 Mar 14, 2007 Jkt 211001 eligible firms are also free to pay, as an alternative, the device fee or snapshot fee should they so choose. Based on the above, the Commission believes that the proposal is consistent with Section 6(b)(4) of the Act,22 in that the proposed rule change provides for the equitable allocation of reasonable dues, fees, and other charges among the Exchange’s members and issuers and other persons using its facilities. The Commission also continues to believe that PBOT’s MDDN fee structure is consistent with Rule 603 under the Act 23 regarding the distribution, consolidation, and display of information with respect to quotations for and transactions in NMS stocks. The Commission finds good cause for approving Amendment No. 3 to the proposed rule change prior to the thirtieth day after the notice is published for comment in the Federal Register pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act.24 Amendment No. 3 clarifies the Exchange’s proposal and does not raise any new regulatory issues. Further, the materiality standard in the Eligible Firm definition drafted into the fee schedule pursuant to Amendment No. 3 was the same standard published for comment with the filing and no comments were received. Finally, the Commission believes that it is appropriate to accelerate approval of the proposed rule change so that the Exchange can immediately provide the discounted fee to eligible firms that will disseminate the index values of Phlx’s proprietary index options. Accordingly, the Commission finds good cause to approve Amendment No. 3 prior to the thirtieth day after the notice is published for comment in the Federal Register. V. Conclusion It is therefore ordered, pursuant to Section 19(b)(2) of the Act,25 that the proposed rule change (SR–Phlx–2006– 63), as amended, be, and it hereby is, approved on an accelerated basis. For the Commission, by the Division of Market Regulation, pursuant to delegated authority.26 Florence E. Harmon, Deputy Secretary. [FR Doc.

Cost Reimbursable Research Request—0960–NEW. rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES Background The Social Security Administration (SSA) is responsible for administrating two cash benefit programs, notably the Old-Age, Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) and SSI programs. To carry out this task, SSA maintains a number of files with detailed information on individuals and their characteristics, such as demographics, employment, earnings, assets, disability VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:20 Mar 14, 2007 Jkt 211001 diagnosis, location, and other information. While designed for SSA to carry out its administrative tasks, the data files offer great informational depth to researchers interested in SSA’s programs and other research areas. As a result, SSA provides qualified researchers needing agency administrative data for a variety of projects. SSA’s data files are governed by strict confidentiality restrictions and are not publicly accessible. Therefore, SSA has charged the Office of Research, PO 00000 Frm 00082 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Evaluation, and Statistics (ORES) as the primary interface for researchers, either within SSA or outside of it, who seek access to SSA’s program files. To safeguard the information and the public trust, ORES has established comprehensive unified application process procedures for obtaining program data for research use. The Cost Reimbursable Research Request To request SSA program data for research, the researcher must submit a E:\FR\FM\15MRN1.SGM 15MRN1 rmajette on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES 12246 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 50 / Thursday, March 15, 2007 / Notices completed research application for SSA’s evaluation. In the application, the requesting researcher must provide required basic project information and describe the way in which the proposed project will further SSA’s mission to promote the economic security of the nation’s people through its administration of the OASDI programs, and/or the SSI program. Depending on the type of research data needed, the requesting researchers may be required to provide SSA with up to 14 1 prescribed project information elements to properly assess their data request. Once the application is reviewed and approved by ORES a Reimbursable Conditions of Use Agreement is signed with the requestor which outlines the conditions and safeguards agreed to for the research project data exchange. The requestor may use the data for research and statistical purposes only. This is a reimbursable service and SSA recovers all expenses incurred in providing this information. The respondents to this information collection are the qualified researchers that request SSA administrative data for a variety of projects. These applicants include but are not limited to Federal and State government agencies and/or their contractors, private entities, and colleges/universities. Type of Request: Collection in use without OMB Control Number. Number of Respondents: 15. Frequency of Response: 1. Average Burden per Response: 240 minutes. Estimated Annual Burden: 60 hours. The total average annual cost for all respondents to use this service is approximately $112,500 or an average of $7,500 to complete a single request. This cost projection is an estimate of SSA’s administrative and systems costs to analyze and provide the requested research data. Since this is a reimbursable, service all associated cost are borne by the requesters. 7. Notice Regarding Substitution of Party On Death of ClaimantReconsideration of Disability Cessation—20 CFR 404.917–404.921 and 416.1407–416.1421—0960–0351.

    6. Cost Reimbursable Research Request--0960-NEW.

Background

    The Social Security Administration (SSA) is responsible for 
administrating two cash benefit programs, notably the Old-Age, 
Survivors, and Disability Insurance (OASDI) and SSI programs. To carry 
out this task, SSA maintains a number of files with detailed 
information on individuals and their characteristics, such as 
demographics, employment, earnings, assets, disability diagnosis, 
location, and other information. While designed for SSA to carry out 
its administrative tasks, the data files offer great informational 
depth to researchers interested in SSA's programs and other research 
areas. As a result, SSA provides qualified researchers needing agency 
administrative data for a variety of projects.
    SSA's data files are governed by strict confidentiality 
restrictions and are not publicly accessible. Therefore, SSA has 
charged the Office of Research, Evaluation, and Statistics (ORES) as 
the primary interface for researchers, either within SSA or outside of 
it, who seek access to SSA's program files. To safeguard the 
information and the public trust, ORES has established comprehensive 
unified application process procedures for obtaining program data for 
research use.

The Cost Reimbursable Research Request

    To request SSA program data for research, the researcher must 
submit a

[[Page 12246]]

completed research application for SSA's evaluation. In the 
application, the requesting researcher must provide required basic 
project information and describe the way in which the proposed project 
will further SSA's mission to promote the economic security of the 
nation's people through its administration of the OASDI programs, and/
or the SSI program. Depending on the type of research data needed, the 
requesting researchers may be required to provide SSA with up to 14 \1\ 
prescribed project information elements to properly assess their data 
request.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ The complete application process is described in SSA's 
Program Data User Manual.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Once the application is reviewed and approved by ORES a 
Reimbursable Conditions of Use Agreement is signed with the requestor 
which outlines the conditions and safeguards agreed to for the research 
project data exchange. The requestor may use the data for research and 
statistical purposes only. This is a reimbursable service and SSA 
recovers all expenses incurred in providing this information. The 
respondents to this information collection are the qualified 
researchers that request SSA administrative data for a variety of 
projects. These applicants include but are not limited to Federal and 
State government agencies and/or their contractors, private entities, 
and colleges/universities.
    Type of Request: Collection in use without OMB Control Number.
    Number of Respondents: 15.
    Frequency of Response: 1.
    Average Burden per Response: 240 minutes.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 60 hours.
    The total average annual cost for all respondents to use this 
service is approximately $112,500 or an average of $7,500 to complete a 
single request. This cost projection is an estimate of SSA's 
administrative and systems costs to analyze and provide the requested 
research data. Since this is a reimbursable, service all associated 
cost are borne by the requesters.
    7. Notice Regarding Substitution of Party On Death of Claimant-
Reconsideration of Disability Cessation--20 CFR 404.917-404.921 and 
416.1407-416.1421--0960-0351. Form SSA-770 is used when a claimant dies 
before a determination is made on that person's request for 
reconsideration on his/her disability cessation. SSA seeks a qualified 
substitute party to pursue the appeal. If the qualified substitute 
party is located, the SSA-770 is used to collect information regarding 
whether to pursue or withdraw the reconsideration request. The 
information collected on the SSA-770 forms the basis of the decision to 
continue or discontinue the appeals process. Respondents are substitute 
applicants who are pursuing a reconsideration request for a deceased 
claimant.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 1,200.
    Frequency of Response: 1.
    Average Burden Per Response: 5 minutes.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 100 hours.
    II. The information collections listed below have been submitted to 
OMB for clearance. Your comments on the information collections would 
be most useful if received by OMB and SSA within 30 days from the date 
of this publication. You can obtain a copy of the OMB clearance 
packages by calling the SSA Reports Clearance Officer at 410-965-0454, 
or by writing to the address listed above.

and 992(b), 416.1413-.1414 and 1492--0960-0347. Form SSA-765 is used by 
claimants to request a disability hearing and/or to submit additional 
evidence before a revised reconsideration determination is issued. The 
respondents are claimants who file for a disability hearing in response 
to a notice of revised determination for disability under the OASDI and 
SSI programs.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 1,925.
    Frequency of Response: 1.
    Average Burden Per Response: 30 minutes.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 963 hours.
    2. Questionnaire about Employment or Self-Employment Outside the 
United States--20 CFR 404.401(b)(1), 404.415, 404.417--0960-0050. The 
information collected on the SSA-7163 is needed to determine whether 
work performed by beneficiaries outside the United States is cause for 
deductions from their monthly Social Security Title II benefits; to 
determine which of two work tests (foreign test or regular test) is 
applicable; and to determine the months, if any, for which deductions 
should be imposed. The respondents are Title II beneficiaries living 
and working outside the United States.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 20,000.
    Frequency of Response: 1.
    Average Burden Per Response: 12 minutes.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 4,000 hours.
    3. Medical Permit Parking Application--41 CFR 101-20.104-2--0960-
0624. SSA issues medical parking assignments at SSA-owned and -leased 
facilities to individuals who have a medical condition which meets the 
criteria for medical parking. In order to issue a medical parking 
permit, SSA must obtain medical evidence from the applicant's 
physician. Form SSA-3192-F4 is used to collect this information. SSA 
then uses the information to determine whether the individual qualifies 
for a medical parking permit and whether or not to issue the permit. 
The respondents are physicians of applicants for medical parking 
permits.
    Type of Request: Extension of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 800.
    Frequency of Response: 1.
    Average Burden Per Response: 60 minutes.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 800 hours.

401-.402, .408(a), .421-.425, .428-.430, .434-.437, .439-.441, 
446-.447, .450-.455, .468--0960-0073. SSA uses the information 
collected on Form SSA-1425 to determine continuing entitlement to Title 
II Social Security benefits and to determine the proper benefit amount. 
The respondents are Social Security beneficiaries receiving SSA 
retirement, disability or survivor's auxiliary benefits who need to 
report an event that could affect payments.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.
    Number of Respondents: 70,000.
    Frequency of Response: 1.
    Average Burden Per Response: 5 minutes.
    Estimated Annual Burden: 5,833 hours.
    5. Disability Hearing Officer's Decision--20 CFR 404.917 and 
416.1417--0960-0441. The Social Security Act requires that SSA provide 
an evidentiary hearing at the reconsideration level of appeal for 
claimants who have received an initial or revised determination that a 
disability did not exist or has ceased. Based on the hearing, the 
disability hearing officer (DHO) completes form SSA-1207 and all 
applicable supplementary forms (which vary depending on the type of 
claim). The DHO uses the information in documenting and preparing the 
disability decision. The form will aid the DHO in addressing the 
crucial elements of the case in a sequential and logical fashion. The 
respondents are DHOs in the State DDSs.

    6. Statement for Determining Continuing Eligibility, Supplemental 
Security Income Payment(s)--20 CFR Subpart B, 416.204--0960-0416. SSA 
uses the information collected on form SSA-8203-BK for high-error-
profile (HEP) redeterminations of disability to determine whether SSI 
recipients have met and continue to meet all statutory and regulatory 
requirements for SSI eligibility and whether they have been, and are 
still receiving, the correct payment amount. The information is 
normally completed in field offices by personal contact (face-to-face 
or telephone interview) using the automated Modernized SSI Claim System 
(MSSICS). The respondents are recipients of Title XVI benefits.

CFR subpart I, 416.903a, 416.912, 416.913, 416.914, 416.917, 416.919 
and 20 CFR subpart J, 416.1013, 416.1024, 416.1014--0960-0555. The 
State DDSs collect certain information that SSA needs to correctly 
administer its disability program. This information is divided into the 
Consultative Examination (CE) and Medical Evidence of Record (MER) 
categories. There are three types of CE evidence: (a) Medical evidence 
from CE providers, in which DDSs use CE medical evidence to make 
disability determinations when the claimant's own medical sources 
cannot or will not provide the required information, (b) CE claimant 
completion of a response form where claimants indicate if they intend 
to keep their CE appointment, and (c) CE claimant completion of a form 
indicating whether they want the CE report to be sent to their doctor. 
In the MER category, the DDSs use MER information to determine a 
person's physical and/or mental status prior to making a disability 
determination. Please note that for the first time, some of the 
information included in this collection can be submitted electronically 
through the new Electronic Records Express (ERE) systems. The 
respondents are medical providers, other sources of MER, and disability 
claimants.
    Type of Collection: Revision to an existing OMB-approved 
collection.
