Written comments also may be transmitted by fax to 202–691–5111 (this is not a toll free number). FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carol Rowan, BLS Clearance Officer, at 202–691–7628 (this is not a toll free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: I. Background The Occupational Employment Statistics Program (OES) program has been funded to collect and produce objective and reliable information on occupational employment and wages for green jobs at the establishment level. This information collection will be conducted through special topic surveys on the green economy. This work is necessary to meet the publication objective outlined in the President’s FY2010 budget proposal. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) presented its approach to measuring green jobs and the proposed definition of green jobs in a March 16th, 2010, Federal Register Notice (75 FR 12571). The measurement approach includes two types of surveys: One on jobs related to producing green goods and services, and one on jobs related to using environmentally friendly production processes and practices. The latter approach will be accomplished through a special employer survey. The proposed research is to assist BLS in developing and testing this survey. This project includes developing survey forms and information collection protocols to provide information on environmentally friendly production processes implemented by businesses across all industries; collecting information on the presence of those activities; and collecting the number, occupation, and wages paid to employees of the establishment performing those activities. This research is necessary for BLS to develop, design, and test survey forms to produce objective and reliable information on these practices. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the ‘‘Forms Design and Pilot Testing for the BLS Green Practices and Processes Project.’’ It is the goal of BLS and its OES program to produce economic statistics on employment related to use of environmentally friendly processes across the U.S. economy. Using its business establishment register, the OES program intends to survey establishments about these activities and the associated employment. The survey will identify employers performing green activities, determine whether they have any employees performing tasks associated with these activities, gather information to classify those employees according to the Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) system, and collect wage rate information. III. Desired Focus of Comments The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility. • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used. • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. Type of Review: New collection. Agency: Bureau of Labor Statistics. Title: Forms Design and Pilot Testing for the BLS Green Practices and Processes Project. OMB Number: 1220–NEW.
