Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 72, No. 227 / Tuesday, November 27, 2007 / Notices pwalker on PROD1PC71 with NOTICES Protection Agency (EPA or the Agency) in selecting Federal advisory committee members who will be appointed as Special Government Employees (SGEs), mostly to EPA’s scientific and technical committees. To select SGE members as efficiently and cost effectively as possible, the Agency needs to evaluate potential conflicts of interest before a candidate is hired as an SGE and appointed as a member to a committee by EPA’s Administrator or Deputy Administrator. Agency officials developed the ‘‘Confidential Financial Disclosure Form for Special Government Employees Serving on Federal Advisory Committees at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency,’’ also referred to as Form 3110–48, for a greater inclusion of information to discover any potential conflicts of interest as recommended by the Government Accountability Office. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average one hour per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. The ICR provides a detailed explanation of the Agency’s estimate, which is only briefly summarized here: • Estimated total number of potential respondents: 300. • Frequency of response: Annual. • Estimated total average number of responses for each respondent: 1. • Estimated total annual burden hours: 300 hours/1 hour per respondent. • Estimated total annual costs: $33,000. There are no capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. Are There Changes in the Estimates From the Last Approval? The burden estimates have been changed to reflect an expected increase of the number of respondents (from 276 to 300), as well as an increase of VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:26 Nov 26, 2007 Jkt 214001 respondents’ costs to complete the form, to cover the next 3 years. What is the Next Step in the Process for This ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB.
