Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 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 through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: If additional information is required contact: the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Policy Directorate/ Office of Strategic Plans, Michael Galang, (202) 282–9118. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Implementing Recommendations of the 9/11 Commission Act of 2007 mandated the QHSR and included the following consultation requirement: ‘‘The Secretary shall conduct each quadrennial homeland security review under this subsection in consultation with—(A) The heads of other Federal agencies, including the Attorney General, the Secretary of State, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of Health and Human Services, the Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Agriculture, and the Director of National Intelligence; (B) key officials of the Department; and (C) other relevant governmental and nongovernmental entities, including State, local, and tribal government officials, members of Congress, private sector representatives, academics, and other policy experts.’’ The homeland security community is so vast that physically convening representative and inclusive study groups that are also able to work efficiently and effectively is virtually impossible. Therefore, DHS will fulfill QHSR consultation requirements through a number of mechanisms, including collaborative web-based engagement tools. In doing so, DHS intends to create a true national dialogue on homeland security. A national dialogue platform will be created and hosted to engage homeland security stakeholders around the compelling questions, ideas, or concepts that emerge through the QHSR process. The dialogue platform is based on the principle of radical scalability: The more feedback that is received, the more clearly sorted participants’ preferences and priorities become. In a national dialogue, users can submit their best VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:43 Jun 01, 2009 Jkt 217001 ideas, refine them in open discussion, and use simple rating and tagging features to identify the most popular ideas and important overarching themes. The platform can host multiple simultaneous dialogues, and dynamically pose new questions, so that DHS can repeatedly ‘‘pulse’’ participants over a three-month timeframe. Ideas, comments, or position papers will also be solicited at the outset of the review and accepted via electronic means. All submitted position papers will inform the QHSR Study Groups as they initiate their analyses. All homeland security stakeholders are eligible and are invited to provide input. A letter from Secretary Napolitano will be sent to each stakeholder association inviting their input. Analysis Agency: Department of Homeland Security, Policy Directorate/Office of Strategic Plans.
