SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Abstract of Proposed Collection The Department’s student internship programs provide a key source of potential candidates who have an interest in, and are qualified, to become future Department employees. Naturally, HR/REE wants to strengthen and maintain its connections to this group, fostering and mentoring a pool of candidates from which to obtain successful recruits. In June 2008, HR/REE surveyed over 3,500 former interns who served from 2005 through spring 2008. The intern alumni were queried as to their motivation in seeking an internship, whether or not they had pursued a career with either the Foreign Service or Civil Service, and what their recommendations would be for the best ways for the Department to maintain contact after the conclusion of their internships. Intern alumni endorse continued contact with Department representatives mainly through electronic means and Web site reminders of career opportunities. In an effort to address these findings and provide viable solutions to improving student engagement prior to, during and following an internship, the Department developed an intern engagement strategy that will ultimately result in a measurable conversion of interns into Department hires for the Foreign or Civil Service. The foundation of this strategy is INTERNational Connections, a Web-based career networking site for current, former and future interns that collects pertinent information about them, their experiences and their career goals.

ACTION: Notice. SUMMARY: In compliance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), this notice announces that the Information Collection Request (ICR) abstracted below has been forwarded to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and comment. The ICR describes the nature of the information collections and their expected burden. The Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was published on March 12, 2009 (74 FR 10804). DATES: Comments must be received on or before July 23, 2009. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: David Bonelli, Office of Chief Counsel, NCC–113, telephone (202) 366–1834, fax (202) 366–3820; NHTSA, 1200 New Jersey Avenue, SE., Washington, DC 20590. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Designation of Agent for Service of Process. OMB Control Number: 2127–0040. Requested Expiration Date of Approval: Three years from the approval date. PO 00000 Frm 00081 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Type of Request: Extension of a previously approved collection. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Form Number: N/A. Abstract: This collection of information applies to motor vehicle and motor vehicle equipment manufacturers located outside of the United States (‘‘foreign manufacturers’’). Section 110(e) of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act of 1966 (49 U.S.C. 30164) requires a foreign manufacturer offering a motor vehicle or motor vehicle equipment for importation into the United States to designate a permanent resident of the United States as its agent upon whom service of notices and processes may be made in administrative and judicial proceedings. These designations are required to be filed with NHTSA. NHTSA requires this information in case it needs to advise a foreign manufacturer of a safety related defect in its products so that the manufacturer can, in turn, notify purchasers and correct the defect. This information also enables NHTSA to serve a foreign manufacturer with all administrative and judicial processes, notices, orders, decisions and requirements. When NHTSA amended the regulation implementing that statutory requirement, codified at 49 CFR part 551, subpart D, NHTSA included an appendix containing a suggested designation form for use by foreign manufacturers and their agents. The purpose of the suggested designation format was to simplify the information collection and submission process, and thereby reduce the burden imposed on each covered manufacturer by 49 CFR part 551, subpart D. To further streamline the information collection process, NHTSA has set up a customer Web site that may be accessed at http://www.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/rules/ manufacture/agent/customer.html. Estimated Annual Burden: 120 hours. Estimated Number of Respondents: 240 respondents. ADDRESSES: Send comments, within 30 days, to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget, 725–17th Street, NW., Washington, DC 20503, Attention NHTSA Desk Officer. The Comments are invited on: Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Department, including whether the information will have practical utility; the accuracy of the Department’s estimate of the burden of the proposed information collection; ways to enhance E:\FR\FM\23JNN1.SGM 23JNN1

Abstract of Proposed Collection

    The Department's student internship programs provide a key source 
of potential candidates who have an interest in, and are qualified, to 
become future Department employees. Naturally, HR/REE wants to 
strengthen and maintain its connections to this group, fostering and 
mentoring a pool of candidates from which to obtain successful 
recruits.
    In June 2008, HR/REE surveyed over 3,500 former interns who served 
from 2005 through spring 2008. The intern alumni were queried as to 
their motivation in seeking an internship, whether or not they had 
pursued a career with either the Foreign Service or Civil Service, and 
what their recommendations would be for the best ways for the 
Department to maintain contact after the conclusion of their 
internships. Intern alumni endorse continued contact with Department 
representatives mainly through electronic means and Web site reminders 
of career opportunities.
    In an effort to address these findings and provide viable solutions 
to improving student engagement prior to, during and following an 
internship, the Department developed an intern engagement strategy that 
will ultimately result in a measurable conversion of interns into 
Department hires for the Foreign or Civil Service. The foundation of 
this strategy is INTERNational Connections, a Web-based career 
networking site for current, former and future interns that collects 
pertinent information about them, their experiences and their career 
goals.

Methodology

    Currently, the Department of State internship program employs over 
1,000

participants in the summer, in addition to fall and spring internships. 
Unfortunately, a tracking system does not exist which would enable the 
Department to capture the intern-to-hire ratio or conversion rate, or 
track this statistic over a period of time. This project would provide 
that missing link.
