Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 212 / Wednesday, November 4, 2009 / Notices $58.12 (4 hours per entity) and an average hourly wage of legal staff time of $40.87 (4 hours per entity).12 Thus, cumulatively, estimated labor costs to comply with the Orders will be $79,192 (($58.12 x 800 hours) + ($40.87 x 800 hours)). The actual cost may be lower to the extent clerical personnel handle some of the tasks. Staff anticipates that industry members maintain most, if not all, of the material sought in the orders in the normal course of business because they must disclose the information to customers under existing law. Moreover, to the extent that information sought is not generated in the normal course of business, any associated nonlabor cost should be de minimis. Willard K. Tom, General Counsel. [FR Doc.

Purpose The U.S. Government conducts criminal checks to establish that applicants or incumbents working for the Government under contract may have unescorted access to GSAcontrolled facilities. GSA uses the Temporary Contractor Information Worksheet and the FBI Form FD–258 Fingerprint Card to conduct a FBI National Criminal Information Check (NCIC) for each temporary contractor (working on contract for six (6) months or less and require physical access only) on GSA contracts for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111–5) efforts to determine whether to grant unescorted access to GSA-controlled facilities. GSA is anticipating a large influx in temporary contractors due to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. GSA received one public comment during the 60-day comment period. In summary, the comment asked whether the information collected from the form could be collected using an existing form or was necessary to collect. GSA responded directly to the submitter by stating that the form: provides notifications and requests an authorizing signature from GSA temporary contractors on American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) that other existing forms do not include; requests only data that is required unlike other existing forms; and collects required GSA location, point of contact information not collected through other existing forms. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Guidance M–05–24 for Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 authorizes Federal departments and agencies to ensure that temporary contractors have limited/ controlled access to facilities and information systems. GSA Directive CIO P 2181.1 Homeland Security Presidential Directive-12 Personal Identity Verification and Credentialing (available at http://www.gsa.gov/ hspd12) states that GSA temporary E:\FR\FM\04NON1.SGM 04NON1 57178 Federal Register / Vol. 74, No. 212 / Wednesday, November 4, 2009 / Notices contractors must undergo a minimum of a FBI National Criminal Information Check (NCIC) to receive unescorted physical access.

In compliance with the requirement of section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS), Department of Health and Human Services, is publishing the following summary of proposed collections for public comment. Interested persons are invited to send VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:29 Nov 03, 2009 Jkt 220001 comments regarding this burden estimate or any other aspect of this collection of information, including any of the following subjects: (1) The necessity and utility of the proposed information collection for the proper performance of the agency’s functions; (2) the accuracy of the estimated burden; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology to minimize the information collection burden. We are, however, requesting an emergency review of the information collection referenced below. In compliance with the requirement of section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, we have submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) the following requirements for emergency review. We are requesting an emergency review because the collection of this information is needed before the expiration of the normal time limits under OMB’s regulations at 5 CFR Part 1320(a)(2)(ii). This is necessary to ensure compliance with an initiative of the Administration. We cannot reasonably comply with the normal clearance procedures because use of the normal clearance procedures is reasonably likely to cause a statutory deadline to be missed, stated in 5 CFR 1320.13(a)(2)(iii). The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) is requesting that an information collection request (ICR) for the Collection Requirements for Compendia for Determination of Medically-accepted Indications for Off-label Uses of Drugs and Biologicals in an Anti-cancer Chemotherapeutic Regimen, be processed under the emergency clearance process. Approval of this package is essential in order to comply with the section 182(b) of MIPPA amended Section 1861(t)(2)(B) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395x(t)(2)(B)). 1. Type of Information Collection Request: New collection; Title of Information Collection: Collection Requirements for Compendia for Determination of Medically-accepted Indications for Off-label Uses of Drugs and Biologicals in an Anti-cancer Chemotherapeutic Regimen Use: Congress enacted the Medicare Improvement of Patients and Providers Act (MIPPA). Section 182(b) of MIPPA amended Section 1861(t)(2)(B) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 1395x(t)(2)(B)) by adding at the end the following new sentence: ‘On and after January 1, 2010, no compendia may be PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 included on the list of compendia under this subparagraph unless the compendia has a publicly transparent process for evaluating therapies and for identifying potential conflicts of interest.’ We believe that the implementation of this statutory provision that compendia have a ‘‘publicly transparent process for evaluating therapies and for identifying potential conflicts of interests’’ is best accomplished by amending 42 CFR 414.930 to include the MIPPA requirements and by defining the key components of publicly transparent processes for evaluating therapies and for identifying potential conflicts of interests. All currently listed compendia will be required to comply with these provisions, as of January 1, 2010, to remain on the list of recognized compendia. In addition, any compendium that is the subject of a future request for inclusion on the list of recognized compendia will be required to comply with these provisions. No compendium can be on the list if it does not fully meet the standard described in section 1861(t)(2)(B) of the Act, as revised by section 182(b) of the MIPPA. Form Number: CMS–10302 (OMB#: 0938– New); Frequency: Reporting, Recordkeeping and Third-party disclosure; Affected Public: Business and other for-profits and Not-for-profit institutions; Number of Respondents: 845; Total Annual Responses: 900; Total Annual Hours: 5,135. (For policy questions regarding this collection contact Brijet Burton at 410–786–7364. For all other issues call 410–786–1326.) CMS is requesting OMB review and approval of this collection by December 8, 2009, with a 180-day approval period.

applicants or incumbents working for the Government under contract may 
have unescorted access to GSA-controlled facilities. GSA uses the 
Temporary Contractor Information Worksheet and the FBI Form FD-258 
Fingerprint Card to conduct a FBI National Criminal Information Check 
(NCIC) for each temporary contractor (working on contract for six (6) 
months or less and require physical access only) on GSA contracts for 
American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Pub. L. 111-5) efforts 
to determine whether to grant unescorted access to GSA-controlled 
facilities. GSA is anticipating a large influx in temporary contractors 
due to the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. GSA received 
one public comment during the 60-day comment period. In summary, the 
comment asked whether the information collected from the form could be 
collected using an existing form or was necessary to collect. GSA 
responded directly to the submitter by stating that the form: provides
