Download as PDF rfrederick on PROD1PC67 with NOTICES 61184 Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 208 / Monday, October 29, 2007 / Notices Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information are encouraged. Your comments should address one or more of the following four points: (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency/component, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s/component’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of the information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (1) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (2) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Overview of this information: (1) Type of Information Collection: Approval of an Existing Collection. (2) Title of the Forms: The National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) State Point of Contact (POC) Final Determination Electronic Submission. (3) Agency Form Number, if any, and the applicable component of the department sponsoring the collection: Form Number: 1110–0035. Sponsor: Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Department of Justice (DOJ). (4) Affected Public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Full State Points of Contact (POC) , Partial-POCs, Alternate Permit State POCs. Brief Abstract: This collection is requested of Full State Points of Contact (POCs), Partial POCs, and Alternate Permit State POCs. Per 28 Code of Federal Regulations, Section 25.6(h), POC States are required to transmit electronic determination messages to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Criminal Justice Information Services Division’s National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS) Section of the status of a firearm background check in those instances in which a transaction is ‘‘open’’ (transactions unresolved before the end of the operational day on which the transaction was initiated); ‘‘denied’’ transactions; transactions reported to the NICS as open and subsequently VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:25 Oct 26, 2007 Jkt 214001 changed to proceed; and overturned denials. The State POC must communicate this response to the NICS immediately upon communicating their determination to the Federal Firearms Licensee or in those cases in which a response has not been communicated, no later than the end of the operational day in which the transaction was initiated. For those responses that are not received, the NICS will assume the transaction resulted in a ‘‘proceed.’’ (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: There are 21 State POCs and ten Alternate Permit State POCs who conduct an average of 4,312,811 transactions per year. It is estimated that 26 percent would be affected by this collection and would require electronic messages sent to the NICS. This translates to 1,121,331 transactions, which would be the total number of annual responses. The other 74 percent would not be reported in this collection. It will require one minute (60 seconds) for each POC State to transmit the information per transaction to the NICS. Thus, it is estimated that collectively all respondents will spend 18,689 hours yearly submitting determinations to the NICS. If the number of transactions were distributed evenly among the POC States, then 603 hours would be the estimated time for each of the 31 states to respond. Record keeping time is part of the routine business process and is not part of this calculation. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The average yearly hour burden for submitting final determinations combined is: (4,312,811 total checks × 26 percent)/60 seconds = 18,689 hours. If additional information is required, contact: Ms. Lynn Bryant, Department Clearance Officer, United States Department of Justice, Policy and Planning Staff, Justice Management Division, Suite 1600, Patrick Henry Building, 601 D Street, NW., Washington, DC 20530.

(5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: A total of approximately 74,317 persons will be eligible for the PPCS questions during July through December 2008. Of the 74,317 persons, we expect approximately 80 percent or 59,231 persons will complete a PPCS interview. Of those persons interviewed for the PPCS, we estimate approximately 81.5 percent or 48,272 persons will complete only the first two (contact screener questions) survey questions. The estimated time to read the introductory statement and administer the first two contact screener questions to the respondents is approximately .025 hours (1.5 minutes) per person. Furthermore, we estimate that the remaining 18.5 percent of the interviewed persons or 10,958 persons will report contact with the police. The estimated time required to ask the detailed questions regarding the nature of the contact is estimated to take an average of .167 hours (10 minutes). Respondents will be asked to respond to this survey only once during the six month period.
