Download as PDF jlentini on PROD1PC65 with NOTICES 47066 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 162 / Wednesday, August 22, 2007 / Notices the public or for limited inspection.’’ Contact information for individual reporters is collected, but only for purposes of quality control/quality assurance questions regarding the report. Responses are voluntary. We intend to release data collected on the National Biological Information Infrastructure Web site http:// www.nbii.gov, but all personal data about the reporter—name, address, phone number, and/or e-mail address— are removed from the publicly accessible database. The database complies with all Department of the Interior requirements and policies for security and data integrity. Frequency: The frequency is once, unless the reporter voluntarily submits more than one observation. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: Approximately 50–100 public citizens annually. Estimated Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: The currently approved ‘‘hour’’ burden for the NARCAM data collection form is 150 hours. We estimate the public reporting burden averages 30 minutes per response. This includes the time for reviewing instructions, and completing and reviewing the information. Because many individuals submit more than one malformation report during a single online session, some respondents will exceed the average of 30 minutes per reporting session. The approved ‘‘hour’’ burden of 150 hours is calculated based upon the total number of average annual malformation reports, and not the average number of citizens submitting a report. Estimated Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Non-Hour Cost’’ Burden: We have identified no ‘‘nonhour cost’’ burden associated with the NARCAM form. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments; Before submitting an ICR to OMB, PRA section 3506(c)(2)(A) requires each agency ‘‘* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information * * *’’. Agencies must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:18 Aug 21, 2007 Jkt 211001 burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Agencies must also estimate the ‘‘nonhour cost’’ burdens to respondents or recordkeepers resulting from the collection of information. Therefore, if you have costs to generate, maintain, and disclose this information, you should comment and provide your total capital and startup cost components or annual operation, maintenance, and purchase of service components. You should describe the methods you use to estimate major cost factors, including system and technology acquisition, expected useful life of capital equipment, discount rate(s), and the period over which you incur costs. Capital and startup costs include, among other items, computers and software you purchase to prepare for collecting information, monitoring, and record storage facilities. You should not include estimates for equipment or services purchased: (i) Before October 1, 1995; (ii) to comply with requirements not associated with the information collection; (iii) for reasons other than to provide information or keep records for the Government; or (iv) as part of customary and usual business or private practices. We will summarize written responses to this notice and address them in our submission for OMB approval. As a result of your comments, we will make any necessary adjustments to the burden in our submission to OMB. Public Comment Policy: Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
