Please cite Background Check Investigations for Child Care Workers, in all correspondence. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 ‘‘Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors’’ requires the implementation of a governmentwide standard for secure and reliable forms of identification for Federal employees and contractors. OMB’s implementing instructions requires all contract employees requiring routine access to Federally controlled facilities for greater than six (6) months to receive a background investigation. The minimum background investigation is the National Agency Check with Written Inquiries or NACI. However, there is no requirement in the law or HSPD–12 that requires child care employees to be subject to the NACI since employees of child care providers are neither government employees nor government contractors. Instead, the child care providers are required to complete the criminal history background checks mandated in the Crime Control Act of 1990, Public Law 101–647, dated November 29, 1990, as amended by Public Law 102–190, dated December 5, 1991. These statutes require that each employee of a child care center located in a Federal building or in leased space must undergo a background check. According to GSA policy, child care workers (as described above) will need to submit the following: 1. An original signed copy of a Basic National Agency Check Criminal History, GSA Form 176; and 2. Two sets of fingerprints on FBI Fingerprint Cards, for FD–258. E:\FR\FM\19JNN1.SGM 19JNN1 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 117 / Friday, June 19, 2009 / Notices This information was previously collected on either the old Federal Protective Service 176 Form or the SF85P. This is a request to replace the form with the GSA Form 176. The new GSA form will be less of a public burden. Please Note: The original request to review and approve the new information collection requirement regarding the collection of personal data for background check investigations was for both temporary contractors and child care workers accessing GSA owned and leased controlled facilities. However, through discussions with OMB a more streamlined process will be developed for conducting background checks on temporary contractors. GSA is therefore pulling the request for review and approval of the collection of personal data for background check investigations of temporary contractors, form GSA 176T, presented in the Federal Register publication of February 17, 2009, 74 FR 7439.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 ``Policy for a 
Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors'' 
requires the implementation of a governmentwide standard for secure and 
reliable forms of identification for Federal employees and contractors. 
OMB's implementing instructions requires all contract employees 
requiring routine access to Federally controlled facilities for greater 
than six (6) months to receive a background investigation. The minimum 
background investigation is the National Agency Check with Written 
Inquiries or NACI.
    However, there is no requirement in the law or HSPD-12 that 
requires child care employees to be subject to the NACI since employees 
of child care providers are neither government employees nor government 
contractors. Instead, the child care providers are required to complete 
the criminal history background checks mandated in the Crime Control 
Act of 1990, Public Law 101-647, dated November 29, 1990, as amended by 
Public Law 102-190, dated December 5, 1991. These statutes require that 
each employee of a child care center located in a Federal building or 
in leased space must undergo a background check.
    According to GSA policy, child care workers (as described above) 
will need to submit the following:
    1. An original signed copy of a Basic National Agency Check 
Criminal History, GSA Form 176; and
    2. Two sets of fingerprints on FBI Fingerprint Cards, for FD-258.

[[Page 29213]]

    This information was previously collected on either the old Federal 
Protective Service 176 Form or the SF85P. This is a request to replace 
the form with the GSA Form 176. The new GSA form will be less of a 
public burden.

    Please Note: The original request to review and approve the new 
information collection requirement regarding the collection of 
personal data for background check investigations was for both 
temporary contractors and child care workers accessing GSA owned and 
leased controlled facilities. However, through discussions with OMB 
a more streamlined process will be developed for conducting 
background checks on temporary contractors. GSA is therefore pulling 
the request for review and approval of the collection of personal 
data for background check investigations of temporary contractors, 
form GSA 176T, presented in the Federal Register publication of 
February 17, 2009, 74 FR 7439. GSA is proceeding with the request 
for review and approval for background check investigations of child 
care workers, form GSA 176C--to be referred to as form GSA 176, 
Background Check Investigations for Child Care Workers.
