SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Comments Invited In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— VerDate Nov<24>2008 17:40 Aug 19, 2009 Jkt 217001 (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; (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 Pipeline Corporate Security Review is a new information collection request that will assess domain awareness, threat prevention, and security awareness at various pipeline sites across the nation. TSA’s pipeline subject matter expert(s) will visit sites, interview pipeline operators and/or system owners, and use a pipeline security review form to gather information. Under the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) 1 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.’’ 2 TSA has additional authorities as well. TSA is specifically empowered to develop policies, strategies, and plans for dealing with threats to transportation,3 oversees the implementation and ensures the adequacy of security measures at transportation facilities,4 and carries out other appropriate duties relating to transportation security.5 1 Public Law 107–71, 115 Stat. 597 (November 19, 2001). 2 See 49 U.S.C. 114(d). The TSA Assistant Secretary’s current authorities under ATSA have been delegated to her/him by the Secretary of Homeland Security. Section 403(2) of the Homeland Security Act (HSA) of 2002, Public Law 107–296, 116 Stat. 2315 (2002), transferred all functions of TSA, including those of the Secretary of Transportation and the Under Secretary of Transportation of Security related to TSA, to the Secretary of Homeland Security. Pursuant to DHS Delegation Number 7060.2, the Secretary delegated to the Assistant Secretary (then referred to as the Administrator of TSA), subject to the Secretary’s guidance and control, the authority vested in the Secretary with respect to TSA, including that in section 403(2) of the HSA. 3 49 U.S.C. 114(f)(3). 4 49 U.S.C. 114(f)(11). 5 49 U.S.C. 114(f)(15). PO 00000 Frm 00040 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Purpose and Description of Data Collection One way TSA carries out these responsibilities in the pipeline mode is by assessing current industry security practices by way of its PCSR. The PCSR encompasses site visits and interviews and is one piece of a much larger domain awareness, prevention, and protection program in support of TSA’s and DHS’ missions. TSA is seeking OMB approval for this information collection so that TSA can ascertain minimum security standards and identify coverage gaps, activities that are critical to carrying out its transportation security mission. The PCSR is an ‘‘instructive’’ review that provides TSA with an understanding of certain surface transportation owners’/operators’ security programs, if they have voluntarily adopted such programs. In carrying out PCSRs, subject matter experts from TSA’s Pipeline Security Division conduct site visits of pipeline operators throughout the nation that elected to adopt security plans. The TSA representatives analyze the owner’s/operator’s security plan and determine if the mitigation measures included in the plan are being properly implemented. In addition to examining the security plan document, TSA reviews one or more assets of the owner/operator. TSA conducts this collection of information on security measures to identify security gaps. The discussions also provide TSA with a method to encourage the pipeline owners/operators affected by the PCSRs to be diligent in implementing and maintaining security-related improvements. During the pipeline site visits, TSA talks with the owner/operator and completes a PCSR form, which asks questions concerning the following topics: (1) Management and oversight of the security plan, (2) threat assessment, (3) criticality, (4) vulnerability assessment, (5) credentialing, (6) training, (7) physical security countermeasures, (8) information technology security, (9) security exercises and drills, and (10) incident management and communications. TSA conducts this collection through voluntary face-to-face visits, usually at the headquarters facility of the pipeline owners/operator. Typically, TSA sends one to three employees to conduct a three to four hour interview with representatives from the owner/ operator. TSA then visits one or two of the owners/operators assets to further assess the implementation of the owner’s/operator’s security plan. TSA E:\FR\FM\20AUN1.SGM 20AUN1 42087 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 160 / Thursday, August 20, 2009 / Notices plans to collect information from pipeline operators of all sizes in the course of conducting these PCSRs. Use of Results This program provides TSA with realtime information on current security practices within the pipeline mode of the surface transportation sector. This information allows TSA to adapt programs to the changing security threat, while incorporating an understanding of the improvements owners/operators make in their security measures. Without this information, the ability of TSA to perform its security mission would be severely hindered. Additionally, the relationships these face-to-face contacts foster are critical to the Federal government’s ability to reach out to the pipeline stakeholders affected by the PCSRs. The relationships foster a sense of trust and a willingness to share information with the Federal government. TSA assures respondents that the portion of their responses that is deemed Sensitive Security Information (SSI) will be protected in accordance with procedures meeting the transmission, handling, and storage requirements of SSI set forth in 49 CFR parts 15 and 1520. The annual hour burden for this information collection is estimated to be 100 hours. While TSA estimates a total of 2,200 potential respondents, this estimate is based on TSA conducting 12 visits per year and each visit lasting 8 hours. There is no cost burden to respondents.

Purpose and Description of Data Collection

    One way TSA carries out these responsibilities in the pipeline mode 
is by assessing current industry security practices by way of its PCSR. 
The PCSR encompasses site visits and interviews and is one piece of a 
much larger domain awareness, prevention, and protection program in 
support of TSA's and DHS' missions. TSA is seeking OMB approval for 
this information collection so that TSA can ascertain minimum security 
standards and identify coverage gaps, activities that are critical to 
carrying out its transportation security mission.
    The PCSR is an ``instructive'' review that provides TSA with an 
understanding of certain surface transportation owners'/operators' 
security programs, if they have voluntarily adopted such programs. In 
carrying out PCSRs, subject matter experts from TSA's Pipeline Security 
Division conduct site visits of pipeline operators throughout the 
nation that elected to adopt security plans. The TSA representatives 
analyze the owner's/operator's security plan and determine if the 
mitigation measures included in the plan are being properly 
implemented. In addition to examining the security plan document, TSA 
reviews one or more assets of the owner/operator. TSA conducts this 
collection of information on security measures to identify security 
gaps. The discussions also provide TSA with a method to encourage the 
pipeline owners/operators affected by the PCSRs to be diligent in 
implementing and maintaining security-related improvements.
    During the pipeline site visits, TSA talks with the owner/operator 
and completes a PCSR form, which asks questions concerning the 
following topics: (1) Management and oversight of the security plan, 
(2) threat assessment, (3) criticality, (4) vulnerability assessment, 
(5) credentialing, (6) training, (7) physical security countermeasures, 
(8) information technology security, (9) security exercises and drills, 
and (10) incident management and communications. TSA conducts this 
collection through voluntary face-to-face visits, usually at the 
headquarters facility of the pipeline owners/operator. Typically, TSA 
sends one to three employees to conduct a three to four hour interview 
with representatives from the owner/operator. TSA then visits one or 
two of the owners/operators assets to further assess the implementation 
of the owner's/operator's security plan. TSA

plans to collect information from pipeline operators of all sizes in 
the course of conducting these PCSRs.

Use of Results

    This program provides TSA with real-time information on current 
security practices within the pipeline mode of the surface 
transportation sector. This information allows TSA to adapt programs to 
the changing security threat, while incorporating an understanding of 
the improvements owners/operators make in their security measures. 
Without this information, the ability of TSA to perform its security 
mission would be severely hindered.
    Additionally, the relationships these face-to-face contacts foster 
are critical to the Federal government's ability to reach out to the 
pipeline stakeholders affected by the PCSRs. The relationships foster a 
sense of trust and a willingness to share information with the Federal 
government. TSA assures respondents that the portion of their responses 
that is deemed Sensitive Security Information (SSI) will be protected 
in accordance with procedures meeting the transmission, handling, and 
storage requirements of SSI set forth in 49 CFR parts 15 and 1520.
    The annual hour burden for this information collection is estimated 
to be 100 hours. While TSA estimates a total of 2,200 potential 
respondents, this estimate is based on TSA conducting 12 visits per 
year and each visit lasting 8 hours. There is no cost burden to 
respondents.
