ECBC will also collect data through similar web-based methodologies on commercial hardware systems that detect chemical, biological, and radiological which have applicability in assessing human exposure to pathogens, toxic chemical and radiological agents. The surveillance of hardware systems has been tasked by The Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency. Affected Public: Volunteer and professional fire stations, paramedics services, law enforcement officers. Annual Burden Hours: 291. Number of Respondents: 700. Responses per Respondent: 1. Average Burden per Response: 25 minutes. Frequency: On occasion. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Summary of Information Collection tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Continuation of CBRN Surveillance Hardware Systems ECBC will collect data on CBRN surveillance systems in support of the Joint Program Executive Office for Chemical and Biological Defense and the Defense Threat Reduction Agency. In parallel ECBC will also collect data on responder preparedness related to CBRN defense in support of the Department of Homeland Security. The methodologies used in both web-based surveys have been replicated from highly successful CBRN market surveys conducted since 2003. In those previous efforts commercially available products were evaluated through an online collection tool. In executing these efforts a survey questionnaire is distributed online via http:// www.SurveyMonkey.com to the targeted community. ECBC maintains an up-todate contact list from past participation and also works in collaboration with trade groups or professional organizations who share interest and help facilitate distribution of the message. ECBC’s subject matter experts have created a small set of targeted questions to be answered by the participants. The information collected will be analyzed using a weighted system and the resulting data is consolidated into a report for the directing organization. In the case of the surveillance hardware surveys the final product was a helpful consolidated guide of all commercially available detection systems which provide a way to compare surveillance and detection VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:34 Feb 06, 2012 Jkt 226001 equipment and make informed purchasing decisions. Due to rapid changes and inventions in technology, the market survey must be updated to ensure accuracy in the information obtained. Previous published editions include the 2003 Market Research Survey, 2005 Market Research Survey, Market Survey: Biological Detection 2007 Edition, and the 2011 Chemical, Biological, Radiological Technology Survey. First Responder Survey ECBC will collect data on responder preparedness related to CBRN defense in support of the Department of Homeland Security.

Contact First Responders ECBC will work with DHS, professional trade groups, and the Responder Knowledge Base (https:// www.rkb.us/) to identify a representative group of first responders to survey. ECBC will provide to these first responders a detailed letter describing the effort and the process for providing information. The survey questionnaire shall be developed using http://www.SurveyMonkey.com, the world’s leading provider of web-based survey solutions, and shall be hosted at the Web site http:// www.ResponderHorizonScan.com. This will allow ECBC to electronically capture information for a large number of first responders and quickly organize and download the information for analysis. Collect and Analyze Data The data collected by ECBC will be analyzed by a team of subject matter experts in detection and decision analysis. Decision analysis experts will create a system by which to subjectively analyze the information gathered from the first responder community. This system will allow flexibility in the analysis increasing the power of the survey. The field analysis will provide PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6093 to DHS valuable insight into the tools being used in the field. Create and Deliver Final Report and/or Publication ECBC will provide to DHS a final report consisting of the full and final raw data collected via www.ResponderHorizonScan.com and a written report detailing the analysis performed and the results of the analysis.

Under the U.S.-International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Additional Protocol, the United States is required to declare a wide range of public and private nuclear-related activities to the IAEA and potentially provide access to IAEA inspectors for verification purposes. The U.S.-IAEA Additional Protocol permits the United States unilaterally to declare exclusions from inspection requirements for activities with direct national security significance. The clause at 252.204–7010 is included in contracts for research and development or major defense acquisition programs involving fissionable materials (e.g., uranium, plutonium, neptunium, thorium, americium); other radiological source materials; or technologies directly related to nuclear power production, including nuclear or radiological waste materials. The clause requires a contractor to provide written notification to the applicable DoD program manager and a copy of the notification to the contracting officer, if the contractor is required to report its activities under the U.S.-IAEA Additional Protocol. Upon such notification, DoD will determine if access may be granted to IAEA inspectors, or if a national security exclusion should be applied.
