Note: Applications include numerous items such as: Transmittal letters, letters of request, modifications to applications, reapplications, etc. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: There are two non-hour costs associated with this information collection. The estimated non-hour cost burden is $122,024. This estimate is based on: (a) Application and audit fees. The total annual estimated cost burden for these fees is $77,024 (refer to burden chart). (b) Cost of reports prepared by independent certified public accountants. Under § 203.81, a report prepared by an independent certified public accountant must accompany the application and post-production report (expansion project, short form, and preview assessment applications are excluded). The OCS Lands Act applications will require this report only once; the DWRRA applications will require this report at two stages—with the application and post-production development report for successful applicants. MMS estimates approximately one submission each year at an average cost of $45,000 per report, for a total estimated annual cost burden of $45,000. The total of the two burdens is estimated at $122,024. Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated to respond. Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) requires each agency ‘‘* * * to provide notice * * * and otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies concerning each proposed collection of information * * *.’’ Agencies must specifically solicit VerDate Nov<24>2008 19:28 Sep 08, 2009 Jkt 217001 comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the agency to perform its duties, including whether the information is useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. To comply with the public consultation process, on April 22, 2009, we published a Federal Register notice (74 FR 18393) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day comment period. In addition, § 203.82 provides the OMB control number for the information collection requirements imposed by the 30 CFR part 203 regulations. The regulation also informs the public that they may comment at any time on the collections of information and provides the address to which they should send comments. We have received no comments in response to these efforts. If you wish to comment in response to this notice, you may send your comments to the offices listed under the ADDRESSES section of this notice. The OMB has up to 60 days to approve or disapprove the information collection but may respond after 30 days. Therefore, to ensure maximum consideration, OMB should receive public comments by October 9, 2009. Public Availability of Comments: Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time.
