Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the FAR, and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology.

Purpose A one-time reporting elements for prime contractors and first-tier subcontractors to publicly disclose the names and total compensation of each of the contractor’s or first-tier subcontractor’s five most highly compensated officers, for the calendar year in which the award was made ((i)(2) and (i)(4)(ix)) (see applicability requirements in (i)(2) and (i)(4)(ix)). The parenthetical reference after each reporting element description refers to the FAR clause. While Section 1512(c)(4) requires reporting on all FFATA data elements, including the compensation information, it limits the prime’s E:\FR\FM\13APN1.SGM 13APN1 18836 Federal Register / Vol. 75, No. 70 / Tuesday, April 13, 2010 / Notices reporting responsibility to first-tier subcontractors that meet the applicability requirements. The FAR clause requires this compensation disclosure for prime contractors as well because to exclude prime contractors while requiring disclosure for first-tier subcontractors would be unsupportable given the transparency goals of both FFATA and the Recovery Act. There are likely to be some prime contractors that already provide public access to the compensation of senior executives through periodic reports filed under section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 or section 6104 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. For purposes of this analysis, the Government estimates 15% of prime contractors already provide such public access. There are also likely to be some first-tier subcontractors that do not meet either of the revenue thresholds for applicability. For purposes of this analysis, the Government estimates 25 percent of first-tier subcontractors will not have to disclose compensation information because they do not meet the revenue thresholds. The hours estimated per response include the time for reviewing instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering the data, and completing the collection of information. B.

Horvath, Indiana University: Based on the Respondent’s own admissions in sworn testimony and as set forth below, Indiana University (IU) and the U.S. Public Health Service (PHS) found that Ms. Emily M. Horvath, former graduate student, IU, engaged in research misconduct in research supported by National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), National Institutes of Health (NIH), grant R01 AT001846 and Predoctoral Fellowship Award F31 AT003977–01, and National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), NIH, grant R01 DK082773–01. Specifically, the Respondent admitted to falsifying the original research data when entering values into computer programs for statistical analysis with the goal of reducing the magnitude of errors within groups, thereby gaining greater statistical power. The Respondent, IU, and ORI agree that the figures identified below in specific grant applications and published papers are false and that these falsifications rise to the level of research misconduct: • Respondent admitted to falsifying Figures 6B, 18, 22, 23B, and 24 in NCCAM, NIH, grant application R01 AT001846–06, ‘‘Chromium Enhanced Insulin & GLUT4 Action via Lipid Rafts,’’ Jeffery S. Elmendorf, P.I.

Elmendork, P.I. (3/15/09–01/31/13). • Respondent admitted to falsifying Figures 2C, 5, 6D, and 11 in the publication: Horvath, E.M., Tacket, L., McCarthy, A.M., Raman, P., Brozinick, J.T., & Elmendorf, J.S. ‘‘Antidiabetogenic Effects of Chromium Mitigate Hyperinsulinemia-induced Cellular Insulin Resistance via Correction of Plasma Membrane Cholesterol Imbalance.’’ Molecular Endocrinology 22:937–950, 2008. PO 00000 Frm 00054 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 • Respondent admitted to falsifying Figure 2C in the publication: Bhonagiri, P., Patter, G.R., Horvath, E.M., Habegger, K.M., McCarthy, A.M., Elmendorf, J.S. ‘‘Hexosamine biosysthesis pathway flux contributes to insulin resistance via altering membrane PIP2 and cortical Factin.’’ Endocrinology 150(4):1636– 1645, 2009. Respondent also admitted to falsifying Figures 2C, 5, 6D, 11, 13C, 15A, 16A, 17A, 18, 19C, and 20A, which are included in her thesis, ‘‘Cholesteroldependent mechanism(s) of insulinsensitizing therapeutics.’’ The Ph.D. was awarded to the Respondent on December 31, 2008. Respondent was supported by a Predoctoral Fellowship Award F31 AT003977 from 09/30/2006 to 09/29/2009. Ms. Horvath has entered into a Voluntary Settlement Agreement in which she has voluntarily agreed, for a period of three (3) years, beginning on March 22, 2010: (1) To exclude herself from serving in any advisory capacity to PHS, including but not limited to service on any PHS advisory committee, board, and/or peer review committee, or as a consultant; (2) That any institution that submits an application for PHS support for a research project on which the Respondent’s participation is proposed or that uses her in any capacity on PHSsupported research, or that submits a report of PHS-funded research in which she is involved, must concurrently submit a plan for supervision of her duties to the funding agency for approval; the supervisory plan must be designed to ensure the scientific integrity of her research contribution; respondent agreed that she will not participate in any PHS-supported research until such a supervisory plan is submitted to ORI; (3) That any institution employing her submits, in conjunction with each application for PHS funds or report, manuscript, or abstract of PHS-funded research in which the Respondent is involved, a certification that the data provided by the Respondent are based on actual experiments or are otherwise legitimately derived and that the data, procedures, analyses, and methodology are accurately reported in the application, report, manuscript, or abstract; the Respondent must ensure that the institution sends a copy of the certification to ORI; and (4) That she will write letters, approved by ORI, to relevant journal editors of the published papers cited above to state what she falsified/ fabricated and to provide corrections if she has not already done so.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    A one-time reporting elements for prime contractors and first-tier 
subcontractors to publicly disclose the names and total compensation of 
each of the contractor's or first-tier subcontractor's five most highly 
compensated officers, for the calendar year in which the award was made 
((i)(2) and (i)(4)(ix)) (see applicability requirements in (i)(2) and 
(i)(4)(ix)). The parenthetical reference after each reporting element 
description refers to the FAR clause.
    While Section 1512(c)(4) requires reporting on all FFATA data 
elements, including the compensation information, it limits the prime's

[[Page 18836]]

reporting responsibility to first-tier subcontractors that meet the 
applicability requirements. The FAR clause requires this compensation 
disclosure for prime contractors as well because to exclude prime 
contractors while requiring disclosure for first-tier subcontractors 
would be unsupportable given the transparency goals of both FFATA and 
the Recovery Act.
    There are likely to be some prime contractors that already provide 
public access to the compensation of senior executives through periodic 
reports filed under section 13(a) or 15(d) of the Securities Exchange 
Act of 1934 or section 6104 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986. For 
purposes of this analysis, the Government estimates 15% of prime 
contractors already provide such public access. There are also likely 
to be some first-tier subcontractors that do not meet either of the 
revenue thresholds for applicability. For purposes of this analysis, 
the Government estimates 25 percent of first-tier subcontractors will 
not have to disclose compensation information because they do not meet 
the revenue thresholds.
    The hours estimated per response include the time for reviewing 
instructions, searching existing data sources, gathering the data, and 
completing the collection of information.
