ACTION: Notice. The Department of Commerce, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. DATES: Written comments must be submitted on or before March 30, 2009. ADDRESSES: Direct all written comments to Diana Hynek, Departmental Paperwork Clearance Officer, Department of Commerce, Room 7845, 14th and Constitution Avenue, NW., Washington, DC 20230 (or via the Internet at dHynek@doc.gov). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Requests for additional information or copies of the information collection instrument and instructions should be directed to Douglas Potts, National Marine Fisheries Service, (978) 281– 9341 or Douglas.Potts@noaa.gov). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: rmajette on PRODPC74 with NOTICES SUMMARY: I. Abstract A proposed emergency rule for the NE Multispecies Fishery Management Plan (FMP) was published in the Federal Register on April 24, 2003 (68 FR 200096). The emergency rule was used to continue management measures specified in the Settlement Agreement Among Certain Parties, which were implemented as ordered by the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia (Court) in a Remedial Order issued on May 23, 2002. The emergency rule included several management measures designed to reduce overfishing on species managed under the NE Multispecies FMP, including a Days-AtSea (DAS) Leasing Program, and was published in order to continue the measures until the implementation of VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:25 Jan 28, 2009 Jkt 217001 Amendment 13 to the NE Multispecies FMP. The final rule, RIN 0648–AN17, for implementing Amendment 13 to the NE Multispecies FMP, was published in the Federal Register on April 27, 2004 (69 FR 22906). Amendment 13 was developed by the New England Fishery Management Council (Council) primarily to end overfishing on all groundfish stocks and to rebuild all groundfish stocks that are overfished. Amendment 13 included substantial reductions in the amount of effort available to target groundfish stocks. Therefore, Amendment 13 resulted in considerable reductions in the number of DAS for NE multispecies vessels. The reduction in the DAS allocated to NE multispecies permit holders limited the ability of some vessels to participate in the fishery, resulting in a loss of revenue and/or the ability to operate at a profit. In order to mitigate some of the adverse economic impacts of the effort reductions, the DAS Leasing Program was established by the Council, among other provisions, in Amendment 13. The DAS Leasing Program enables vessels to increase their revenue by either leasing additional DAS from another vessel or using them to increase their participation in the fishery, or by leasing their allocated DAS that they may not use to another vessel.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ACTION: Summary of Information Collection The IASP, authorized by Section 2200 of title 10 of the United States Code, is designed to: increase the number of new entrants to DoD who possess key Information Assurance (IA) and IT skill sets, and serve as a tool to develop and retain well-educated military and civilian personnel who support the Department’s critical IT management and infrastructure protection functions. The IASP recruitment track is for college students who, on completion of the program, come to work for the DoD. The retention track is for current DoD employees who are excused from duty to attend college courses through the IASP. Pending availability of funds, the IASP may also award capacity-building grants to colleges and universities designated as CAE/IAEs for such purposes as developing IA curricula and faculty, and building IA laboratories. The recruitment, retention and grant programs all require a competitive application process. Additionally, there is an assessment process which examines how grant funds were spent, as well as an assessment process requiring status reports from students in the program, and university faculty representatives (Principal Investigators) for the purpose of program evaluation. In order to apply for any aspect of the program, paperwork is required so that the DoD may judge the merits of a given application and determine how best to allocate IASP funds. The Recruitment, Capacity-Building, and Assessment aspects of the IASP apply to non-DoD employee members of the general public who choose to become involved in the program and thus become subject to information collection requirements. The Retention aspect of the IASP applies only to current DoD personnel, and thus its information collection requirements are not addressed in this request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Summary of Information Collection

    The IASP, authorized by Section 2200 of title 10 of the United 
States Code, is designed to: increase the number of new entrants to DoD 
who possess key Information Assurance (IA) and IT skill sets, and serve 
as a tool to develop and retain well-educated military and civilian 
personnel who support the Department's critical IT management and 
infrastructure protection functions. The IASP recruitment track is for 
college students who, on completion of the program, come to work for 
the DoD. The retention track is for current DoD employees who are 
excused from duty to attend college courses through the IASP. Pending 
availability of funds, the IASP may also award capacity-building grants 
to colleges and universities designated as CAE/IAEs for such purposes 
as developing IA curricula and faculty, and building IA laboratories. 
The recruitment, retention and grant programs all require a competitive 
application process. Additionally, there is an assessment process which 
examines how grant funds were spent, as well as an assessment process 
requiring status reports from students in the program, and university 
faculty representatives (Principal Investigators) for the purpose of 
program evaluation.
    In order to apply for any aspect of the program, paperwork is 
required so that the DoD may judge the merits of a given application 
and determine how best to allocate IASP funds.
    The Recruitment, Capacity-Building, and Assessment aspects of the 
IASP apply to non-DoD employee members of the general public who choose 
to become involved in the program and thus become subject to 
information collection requirements. The Retention aspect of the IASP 
applies only to current DoD personnel, and thus its information 
collection requirements are not addressed in this request.
