Title: Accounts Receivable Confirmations. OMB Control Number: 1010–0162. Bureau Form Number: None. Abstract: The Secretary of the U.S. Department of the Interior is responsible for mineral resource development on Federal and Indian lands and the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). The Secretary is required by various laws to manage mineral resource production on Federal and Indian lands and the OCS, collect the royalties and other mineral revenues due, and distribute the funds in accordance with those laws. Applicable laws pertaining to mineral leases on Federal and Indian lands are posted on our Web site at http:// www.mrm.mms.gov/Laws_R_D/ PublicLawsAMR.htm. The Secretary also has a trust responsibility to manage Indian lands and seek advice and information from Indian beneficiaries. The MMS performs the minerals revenue management functions and assists the Secretary in carrying out the Department’s trust responsibility for Indian lands. When a company or an individual enters into a lease to explore, develop, produce, and dispose of minerals from Federal or Indian lands, that company or individual agrees to pay the lessor a share in an amount or value of production from the leased lands. The lessee is required to report various kinds of information to the lessor relative to the disposition of the leased minerals. Such information is generally available within the records of the lessee or others involved in developing, transporting, processing, purchasing, or selling of such minerals. The information collected includes data necessary to ensure that the royalties are accurately valued and appropriately paid. Every year, under the CFO, the Department’s Office of Inspector General, or its agent (agent), audits the SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2091 Department’s financial statements. The Department’s goal is to receive an unqualified opinion. Accounts receivable confirmations are a common practice in the audit business. Due to continuously increasing scrutiny on financial audits, third-party confirmation on the validity of MMS financial records is necessary. Companies submit financial information on Form MMS–2014, Report of Sales and Royalty Remittance (OMB Control Number 1010–0140, expires November 30, 2009) and on Form MMS–4430, Solid Minerals Production and Royalty Report (OMB Control Number 1010– 0120, expires December 31, 2010). As part of CFO audits, the agent requests, by a specified date, third-party confirmation responses confirming that MMS accounts receivable records agree with royalty payor records, for the following items: Customer identification; royalty/invoice number; payor-assigned document number; date received; original amount reported; and remaining balance due MMS as of a specified date. In order to meet this requirement, MMS must mail letters on MMS letterhead, signed by the Deputy Associate Director for Minerals Revenue Management, to royalty payors selected by the agent at random, asking them to respond to the agent, confirming the accuracy and/or validity of selected royalty receivable items and amounts. Verifying the amounts reported and the balances due requires time for research and analysis by payors. This collection does not require proprietary, trade secret, or other confidential information not protected by agency procedures. No items of a sensitive nature are collected. The requirement to respond is voluntary. The MMS is requesting OMB’s approval to continue to collect this information. Failure to collect this information would limit the Secretary’s ability to discharge the duties of the office. Failure to collect this information could be considered a scope limitation for CFO audits. Frequency: Annually. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: 100 Federal and Indian oil and gas and solid mineral royalty payors. Estimated Annual Reporting and Recordkeeping ‘‘Hour’’ Burden: 25 hours. We estimate that each response will take 15 minutes for payors to complete. There are no additional recordkeeping costs associated with this information collection. We have not included in our estimates certain requirements performed in the normal course of E:\FR\FM\14JAN1.SGM 14JAN1
