The display of OMB control numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: EPA has developed some generic reporting tools to supplement the existing performance reports submitted by assistance agreement recipients under 40 CFR Parts 30 and 31. The new reporting tools are designed to collect performance measurement information on two types of activities performed by assistance agreement recipients: training and education/outreach. Specifically, EPA has created generic questions and reporting formats that will be made available to the EPA programs and assistance agreement recipients. The tools are designed to measure the extent to which the assistance agreement recipients achieve the short-term and intermediate outcomes stated in their work plans for trainings and education/ outreach. The questions and formats are flexible enough for use by any of the EPA programs. An assistance agreement recipient would review the reporting formats and generic questions, select the format and questions that are appropriate for its needs, and assemble them into a questionnaire. The recipient would then submit its proposed questionnaire and supporting materials to EPA, which would forward them to OMB after a review for completeness and compliance. After receiving OMB approval through an expedited clearance process, the assistance agreement recipient would distribute the questionnaire and collect, tally, and report the responses to EPA. Use of the forms would not be required, but used at the discretion of the responsible program and assistance agreement recipients. EPA has created a generic ICR that addresses the reporting tools. Upon OMB approval of the ICR, EPA program offices and their assistance agreement recipients would be able to prepare questionnaires using the tools and submit the questionnaires and supporting materials for expedited OMB approval. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to be six hours VerDate Aug<31>2005 16:19 Mar 14, 2008 Jkt 214001 per assistance agreement. This includes time for preparing the questionnaire and related materials for OMB approval, and collecting, summarizing, and reporting the results to EPA. The annual public reporting burden is estimated to range from five to 10 minutes for an individual to complete a questionnaire. There is no public recordkeeping burden for this information collection. 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. Respondents/Affected Entities: Entities potentially affected by this action include assistance agreement recipients that perform training and/or education and outreach. Estimated average annual number of assistance agreements affected: Between 480 and 720. Estimated annual frequency of response: Quarterly or less often. Estimated annual average number of responses for each assistance agreement: 4. Estimated total annual respondent burden hours: 12,024 hours. Estimated total annual respondent costs: $341,413. This includes an estimated labor cost of $341,413 and $0 for capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. Dated: March 11, 2008.

publication in the Federal Register or by other appropriate means, such 
as on the related collection instrument or form, if applicable. The

adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable
