SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:45 Feb 17, 2009 Jkt 217001 Comments Invited In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Information Collection Requirement Title: Department of Homeland Security—Vulnerability Identification Self-Assessment Tool—Transportation (DHS–VISAT–T). Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. OMB Control Number: 1652–0037. Forms(s): NA. Affected Public: Transportation Sectors. Abstract: The DHS–VISAT–T (formerly the TSA Self-Assessment Risk Module (TSARM)) was developed to assist all modes of transportation asset owners/operators in developing a security plan and in performing a vulnerability assessment of their asset(s). The tool is designed to be userfriendly, web-based, and is provided at no cost to transportation owner and operators. The tool captures a snapshot of the asset’s baseline security posture and assists the stakeholder in conducting a vulnerability assessment and completing a comprehensive security plan. TSA designed this tool to be flexible to support the unique characteristics of each transportation mode, while still providing a common framework from which analysis and trends can be identified. Thus far, TSA has developed modules of the tool for maritime, mass transit, highway bridges, and rail passenger stations, with more in development. Users have the option to submit the completed assessment to TSA. If PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 7619 submitted, TSA reviews the assessment for consistency and provides feedback to the users. Submitted assessments are then used to conduct analysis of the industry standard and to provide cross sector analysis of multiple modes. Number of Respondents: 1,000. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 8,000 hours annually. Issued in Arlington, Virginia, on February 12, 2009.
