In that notice, we solicited public comments for 60 days ending July 21, 2009. One comment came from B. Sachau of Florham Park, NJ, via e-mail on May 22, 2009, who objected to this information collection. VerDate Nov<24>2008 18:55 Jul 23, 2009 Jkt 217001 Response: (Some background on the program to clarify the survey request is provided.) The Alliances for Broadening Participation in STEM (ABP) includes three programs: the Louis Stokes Alliances for Minority Participation (LSAMP) program; the Bridge to the Doctorate (LSAMP–BD) Activity; and the Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) program. This portfolio of programs seeks to increase the number of students successfully completing quality degree programs in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Particular emphasis is placed on transforming STEM education through innovative academic strategies and experiences in support of groups that historically have been underrepresented in STEM disciplines: AfricanAmericans, Alaskan Natives, Native Americans, Hispanic Americans, and Native Pacific Islanders. Managed synergistically, the ABP cluster enables seamless transitions from the STEM baccalaureate to attainment of the doctorate and entry to the STEM professoriate. ABP support begins at the baccalaureate level through the LSAMP program. LSAMP emphasizes development of broad based regional and national alliances of academic institutions, school districts, State and local governments, and the private sector to increase the diversity and quality of the STEM workforce. Eligible LSAMP undergraduate students may receive continued support for up to two additional years of STEM graduate study through the Bridge to the Doctorate (BD) Activity. The Bridge to the Doctorate provides significant financial support for matriculating candidates in STEM graduate programs at eligible alliance sites. Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) furthers the graduate education of underrepresented STEM students through the doctorate level, preparing them for fulfilling opportunities and productive careers as STEM faculty and research professionals. AGEP also supports the transformation of institutional culture to attract and retain STEM doctoral students into the professorate. Further information may be found via the AGEP Web page: http://www.agep.us/ index.asp#maincontent. NSF believes that because the comment does not contain suggestions for altering the collection of information for which NSF is seeking OMB approval, NSF is proceeding with the clearance request. Title of Collection: National Evaluation of the Alliances for Graduate PO 00000 Frm 00132 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Education and the Professoriate Faculty and Student Surveys. OMB Control No.: 3145–NEW. Abstract: The Division of Human Resource Development (EHR/HRD) of the National Science Foundation has requested impact information on the Alliances for Graduate Education and the Professoriate (AGEP) Program. Funded by NSF, the AGEP Program has funded 28 alliances of colleges and universities to promote the participation of underrepresented minority groups in PhD programs in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM). The ultimate goal of the program is to increase the number of underrepresented minorities in these fields who enter the professoriate. NSF now seeks follow-up information on program participants—that is, students and faculty— to determine what impact the program has had on graduate students’ decisions to enroll in and graduate from STEM doctoral programs and enter the professoriate. NSF proposes a one-time on-line survey of STEM graduate students currently enrolled in STEM doctoral programs and faculty members at universities taking part in AGEP. Estimate of Burden: The Foundation estimates that, on average, 30 minutes per respondent will be required to complete the surveys, for a total of 8,250 hours for all respondents. Respondents from the 104 institutions that received NSF AGEP support will be asked to complete this survey once. Respondents: STEM faculty at AGEP institutions and STEM graduate students at AGEP institutions. Estimate total number of responses: 16,500. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 8,250 hours. Dated: July 21, 2009. Suzanne H. Plimpton, Reports Clearance Officer, National Science Foundation. [FR Doc.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Introduction

    The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is issuing for public 
comment a draft guide in the agency's ``Regulatory Guide'' series. This 
series was developed to describe and make available to the public 
information and methods that are acceptable to the NRC staff for 
implementing specific parts of the NRC's regulations, techniques that 
the staff uses in evaluating specific problems or postulated accidents, 
and data that the staff needs in its review of applications for permits 
and licenses.
    The draft regulatory guide (DG), entitled, ``Standard Format and 
Content of License Applications for Plutonium Processing and Fuel 
Fabrication Facilities,'' is temporarily identified by its task number, 
DG-3038, which should be mentioned in all related correspondence. DG-
3038 is a proposed Revision 1 of Regulatory Guide 3.39, dated January 
1976.
    This guide endorses the standard format and content for safety 
analysis reports (SARs) and integrated safety analysis (ISA) summaries 
described in the current version of NUREG-1718, ``Standard Review Plan 
for the Review of an Application for a Mixed Oxide Fuel Fabrication 
Facility,'' as a method that the NRC staff finds acceptable for meeting 
the regulatory requirements.
    Title 10, of the Code of Federal Regulations, Part 70, ``Domestic 
Licensing of Special Nuclear Material'' (10 CFR part 70), subpart H, 
``Additional Requirements for Certain Licensees Authorized to Possess a 
Critical Mass of Special Nuclear Material'' identifies risk-informed 
performance requirements for plutonium processing and fuel fabrication 
facilities. It requires applicants to complete an ISA and submit an ISA 
summary and other information to the NRC for approval.
