ACTION: Notice of request for comments regarding an existing OMB information collection. A. Purpose Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, the Regulatory Secretariat will be submitting to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request to review and approve a previously approved information collection requirement regarding the collection of personal data for background investigations for child care workers accessing GSA owned and leased controlled facilities.

Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 ‘‘Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors’’ requires the implementation of a governmentwide standard for secure and reliable forms of identification for Federal employees and contractors. OMB’s implementing instructions require all contract employees requiring routine access to federally controlled facilities for greater than six (6) months to receive a background investigation. The minimum background investigation is the National Agency Check with Written Inquiries or NACI. However, there is no requirement in the law or HSPD–12 that requires child care employees to be subject to the NACI since employees of child care providers are neither government employees nor government contractors. Instead, the child care providers are AGENCY: SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00025 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 E:\FR\FM\24MYN1.SGM 24MYN1
