Download as PDF erowe on DSK5CLS3C1PROD with NOTICES 52488 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 196 / Tuesday, October 13, 2009 / Notices numbers in certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR Part 9. Abstract: EPA tips and complaints Webform is intended to provide an easy and convenient means by which members of the public can supply information to EPA regarding suspected violations of environmental law. The decision to provide a tip or complaint is entirely voluntary and use of the Webform when supplying a tip or complaint is also entirely voluntary. Those persons that provide tips need not supply contact information or other personal identifiers. Those who do supply such information, however, should know that this information may be shared by EPA with appropriate administrative, law enforcement, and judicial entities engaged in investigating or adjudicating the tip or complaint. Burden Statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average one-half hour per response. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; develop, acquire, install, and utilize technology and systems for the purposes of collecting, validating, and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and of disclosing and providing information; adjust the existing ways to comply with any previously applicable instructions and requirements which have subsequently changed; train personnel to be able to respond to a collection of information; search data sources; complete and review the collection of information; and transmit or otherwise disclose the information. It is expected that a total of 630 people will complete the tips and complaints form each month, for a total of 7,560 people per year. Given that people typically arrive at the form with all of the information needed to complete the form, EPA expects that the form will take no more than 30 minutes to complete. Accordingly, EPA expects that the total annual burden hours will be approximately 3,780. EPA does not anticipate any capital or start-up costs associated with completion of this form. EPA also does not anticipate that, in the usual case, burden hours associated with the tips and complaint form will translate into actual labor costs; EPA expects relatively few tips or complaints to be submitted as part of an employee’s official duties. For this reason, EPA believes that the relevant ‘‘labor costs’’ associated with the form are best calculated as the wage opportunity cost VerDate Nov<24>2008 15:29 Oct 09, 2009 Jkt 220001 to people of the form’s estimated burden hours. The wage opportunity cost of the burden hours associated with this form can be estimated by multiplying the total number of burden hours by the average national hourly wage reported by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). BLS reports the average hourly wage in July 2007 to have been $19.88 per hour; accordingly, the total wage opportunity cost associated with the tips and complaints form would be approximately $75,146 per annum. Are There Changes in the Estimates From the Last Approval? There is an increase of 1980 hours in the total estimated respondent burden compared with that identified in the ICR currently approved by OMB. This increase reflects the fact that tips and complaints are being filed at a higher rate than originally anticipated, a strong indication of the success of this program. There has been no change in the information being reported or the estimated burden per respondent. What Is the Next Step in the Process for This ICR? EPA will consider the comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. At that time, EPA will issue another Federal Register notice pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(l)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB. If you have any questions about this ICR or the approval process. please contact the technical person listed under FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT. Dated: September 24, 2009.
