Title, Associated Form; and OMB Number: Industrial Capabilities Questionnaire; DD Form 2737; OMB Number 0704–0377. Needs and Uses: As part of its responsibilities to facilitate a diverse, responsive, and competitive industrial base, the Department of Defense (DoD) requires accurate, pertinent, and up to date information as to industry’s ability to satisfy defense needs. The Industrial Capabilities Questionnaire will be used by all Services and the Defense Logistics Agency to gather business, industrial capability (employment, skills, facilities, equipment, processes, and technologies), and manufactured end item information to conduct required industrial assessments and to support DoD strategic planning and decisions. Such data is essential to the Department of Defense for peacetime and wartime industrial base planning. All DD Form 2737 data submitted to the Department of Defense, Military Services or Defense Agencies are treated as Proprietary Company Confidential information and protected from release to other parties. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Annual Burden Hours: 12,800. Number of Respondents: 153,600. Responses per Respondent: 1. Average Burden per Response: 12 hours. Frequency: Annually. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Summary of Information Collection Respondents are industry professionals who provide information to the requesting DoD agency on the industrial capabilities associated with the subject facility being reviewed. The DoD agencies were directed to solicit only those data elements within this form necessary to conduct the particular planning or assessment task at hand. This approach is used to minimize the burden for data requests on industry and limit the retention of in-house data to that essential to supporting defense decisions and plans. A significant portion of this information will be collected electronically and, with appropriate measures to protect sensitive data, will be made available to authorized users in the Department to support a wide variety of industrial VerDate Nov<24>2008 16:29 Nov 03, 2009 Jkt 220001 capability analyses. These analyses are used to support cost effective acquisition of defense systems and key troop support/consumable items, assess the implications of changes in defense spending on industry, development of responsive logistics support efforts, and industrial preparedness planning and readiness analyses. The lack of accurate, current and relevant industry capability information will adversely impact the integrity of the Department’s decisions and planning efforts. Dated: October 26, 2009. Patricia L.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Summary of Information Collection The purpose of this study is to respond to the 2008 National Defense Authorization Act (Conference Report) to evaluate the provision in the Troops to Nurse Teachers (TNT) Act 2008 that encourages retired military nurses to become nurse educators. This study gives impetus for a one-time and voluntary data collection effort that yields timely and objective information that can be used to help inform DoD policy makers about the critical need for increasing and maintaining the supply of military nurses. Specifically, the study will examine the feasibility and merits of the Congressional proposal to create incentives for former military nurses to take faculty positions in nursing schools, for the purpose of encouraging more nurse graduates to consider military service. In doing so, the study will evaluate the retired nursing provision in the context of the broader issue of military nurse supply. RAND will survey military nurses who are on active duty but close to retirement eligibility (20 years of service), or recently retired. The primary purpose of collecting data from this group is to determine what factors would attract a retiree to teach nursing. The process will also involve a survey of current civilian nursing school students who are in their last year of an accredited BSN degree program, and are eligible to enter the military upon graduation. The primary purpose for collecting data from students is to explore what factors may or may not influence them to join the military, E:\FR\FM\04NON1.SGM 04NON1
