As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act, TSA will submit the application to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. The ICR describes the nature of the information collection and its expected burden. Specifically, the collection involves the submission of contact information of the company’s primary and alternate security manager and the telephone number of the security operations or control center, as well as data concerning pipeline security incidents.

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; 18:30 Jul 28, 2009 Jkt 217001 Information Collection Requirement Purpose of Data Collection Transportation Security Administration, DHS. ACTION: 60-day Notice. AGENCY: VerDate Nov<24>2008 (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. The ICR documentation is available at http://www.reginfo.gov. Under the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) (Pub. L. 107–71, 115 Stat. 597 (November 19, 2001)) and delegated authority from the Secretary of Homeland Security, TSA has broad responsibility and authority for ‘‘security in all modes of transportation * * * including security responsibilities * * * over modes of transportation that are exercised by the Department of Transportation.’’ 1 Pipeline transportation is a mode of transportation over which TSA has jurisdiction. The Pipeline Security Division within the Office of Transportation Sector Network Management (TSNM) has the lead within TSA for pipeline matters. In executing its responsibility for pipeline security, TSNM has employed the Pipeline Security Information Circular (Circular), which was issued on September 5, 2002 by the Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Office of Pipeline Safety. The Circular defines critical pipeline facilities, identifies appropriate countermeasures for protecting them, and explains how the Federal government will verify that operators have taken appropriate action to implement satisfactory security procedures and plans. This document has been the primary Federal guideline for pipeline security. In 2008, TSA recognized that the Circular required updating, and initiated a process to 1 See 49 U.S.C. 114(d). The TSA Assistant Secretary’s current authorities under ATSA have been delegated by the Secretary of Homeland Security. Section 403(2) of the Homeland Security Act (HSA) of 2002 (Pub. L. 107–296, 116 Stat. 2315 (November 25, 2002)) transferred all functions of TSA, including those of the Secretary of Transportation and the Under Secretary of Transportation related to TSA, to the Secretary of Homeland Security.
