Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Respondents may request material or information submitted to the Commission be withheld from public inspection under 47 CFR 0.459 of the Commission’s rules. Information within the Wireless Radio Services is maintained in the Commission’s system of records notice (SORN), FCC–WTB–1, ‘‘Wireless Services Licensing Records.’’ These licensee records are publicly available and routinely used in accordance with subsection b of the Privacy Act of 1974, 5 U.S.C. 552a(b), as amended. Material that is afforded confidential treatment pursuant to a request being made under 47 CFR 0.459 will not be available for public inspection. The Commission has in place the following policy and procedures for records retention and disposal: • Records will be actively maintained as long as the individual remains a licensee. • Paper records will be archived after being keyed or scanned into the system. • Electronic records will be backed up on tape. • Electronic and paper records will be maintained for at least twelve years and three months. Needs and Uses: The Commission will submit this expiring information collection to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for approval for an extension (no change in the reporting PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 55843 requirement). There is no change in the Commission’s previous burden estimates. The Commission’s Wireless Telecommunications Bureau (WTB) periodically conducts audits of the construction and/or operational status of various wireless radio stations in its licensing database that are subject to rule-based construction and operational requirements. The Commission’s rules for these wireless services require construction within a specified time frame and require a station to remain operational in order for the license to remain valid. This reporting requirement will be used by FCC staff to assure that licensee stations are constructed and currently operating in accordance with the parameters of the current FCC authorization and rules.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    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 requires 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 required to complete 
the criminal history background checks mandated in the Crime Control 
Act of 1990, Public Law 101-647, dated November 29, 1990, as amended by 
Public Law 102-190, dated December 5, 1991. These statutes require that 
each employee of a child care center located in a Federal building or 
in leased space must undergo a background check.
    According to GSA policy, child care workers (as described above) 
will need to submit the following:
    1. An original signed copy of a Basic National Agency Check 
Criminal History, GSA Form 176; and
    2. Two sets of fingerprints on FBI Fingerprint Cards, for FD-258.
    This is not a request to collect new information, this is a request 
to change the form that is currently being used to collect this 
information. The new GSA forms will be less of a public burden. This 
information is presently being collected on either the old Federal 
Protective Service 176 Form or the SF85P.
    Please Note: The original request to review and approve the new 
information collection requirement regarding the collection of personal 
data for background check investigations was for both temporary 
contractors and child care workers accessing GSA owned and leased 
controlled facilities. However, through discussions with OMB a more 
streamlined will be developed for conducting background checks on 
temporary contractors. GSA is therefore pulling the request for review 
and approval of the collection of personal data for background check 
investigations of temporary contractors, form GSA 176T, presented in 
the Federal Register publication of February 17, 2009, 74 FR 7439. GSA 
is proceeding with the request for review and approval for background 
check investigations of child care workers, form GSA 176C--to be 
referred to as form GSA 176, HSPD-12, Background Check Investigations 
for Child Care Workers.
