SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose FAR Subpart 50.1 prescribes policies and procedures that allow contracts to be entered into, amended, or modified in order to facilitate national defense under the extraordinary emergency authority granted under 50 U.S.C. 1431 et seq. and Executive Order (EO) 10789 dated November 14, 1958, et seq. In order for a contractor to be granted relief under the FAR, specific evidence must be submitted which supports the firm’s assertion that relief is appropriate and that the matter cannot be disposed of under the terms of the contract. The information is used by the Government to determine if relief can be granted under FAR and to determine the appropriate type and amount of relief. B. Annual Reporting Burden The annual reporting burden is not changed from what was published in the Federal Register at 74 FR 48744, on September 24, 2009. Based on coordination with subject matter experts and consideration of the requirements for estimating the burden within the Paperwork Burden Act, the determination was made to not revise the annual reporting burden. However, at any point, members of the public may submit comments for further consideration, and are encouraged to provide data to support their request for an adjustment. The annual reporting burden is estimated as follows: Respondents: 100. Responses per Respondent: 1. Total Responses: 100. Hours per Response: 16. Total Burden Hours: 1,600. Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requester may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the General Services Administration, Regulatory Secretariat (MVCB), 1275 First Street NE., Washington, DC 20417, telephone (202) 501–4755.

[FR Doc. 2012–22411 Filed 9–11–12; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 6820–EP–P DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES Administration for Children and Families Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request Title: Measure Development: Quality of Family-Provider Relationships in Early Care and Education. OMB No.: New Collection The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE), the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection activity as part of the development of an early care and education (ECE) quality measurement tool to assess family-provider relationships that support positive child developmental outcomes and family wellbeing. The major goal of this project is to develop a measure of the quality of family-provider relationships that will be (1) applicable across multiple types of early care and education settings and diverse program structures (including Head Start/Early Head Start); (2) sensitive across cultures associated with racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic characteristics; and (3) reliable in both English and Spanish. At this time, four self-administered surveys (one for center- and home-based child care directors, one for child care providers/ teachers, and two for parents) have been developed, based on a literature review, a review of existing measures, and information collected through focus groups (under OMB Clearance 0970– 0356) and cognitive interviews (under OMB Clearance 0970–0355). To test these measures, two stages of data collection activities are proposed for this information collection request: a pilot test and a field test. The pilot test data will be used to examine the distribution of the items and to determine whether they behave in a manner consistent with the conceptual model that was developed as part of the project. The pilot test will also test data collection procedures prior to conducting a large-scale field test. Any problematic items or procedures identified by the pilot test will be corrected and revisions submitted to OMB before the field test. The purpose of the field test is to obtain sufficient data on a diverse population to enable full psychometric testing of the measures and compare subgroups to ensure that the measure can be used in diverse ECE settings. Respondents: Directors of centerbased child care programs, home-based child care programs, Early Head Start programs, and Head Start programs; center-based and home-based child care providers and ECE teachers; and parents whose children are enrolled in these diverse-types of ECE settings.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Measure Development: Quality of Family-Provider 
Relationships in Early Care and Education.
    OMB No.: New Collection
    The Office of Planning, Research and Evaluation (OPRE), the 
Administration for Children and Families (ACF), U.S. Department of 
Health and Human Services (HHS), is proposing a data collection 
activity as part of the development of an early care and education 
(ECE) quality measurement tool to assess family-provider relationships 
that support positive child developmental outcomes and family 
wellbeing. The major goal of this project is to develop a measure of 
the quality of family-provider relationships that will be (1) 
applicable across multiple types of early care and education settings 
and diverse program structures (including Head Start/Early Head Start); 
(2) sensitive across cultures associated with racial, ethnic, and 
socioeconomic characteristics; and (3) reliable in both English and 
Spanish. At this time, four self-administered surveys (one for center- 
and home-based child care directors, one for child care providers/
teachers, and two for parents) have been developed, based on a 
literature review, a review of existing measures, and information 
collected through focus groups (under OMB Clearance 0970-0356) and 
cognitive interviews (under OMB Clearance 0970-0355). To test these 
measures, two stages of data collection activities are proposed for 
this information collection request: a pilot test and a field test.
    The pilot test data will be used to examine the distribution of the 
items and to determine whether they behave in a manner consistent with 
the conceptual model that was developed as part of the project. The 
pilot test will also test data collection procedures prior to 
conducting a large-scale field test. Any problematic items or 
procedures identified by the pilot test will be corrected and revisions 
submitted to OMB before the field test.
    The purpose of the field test is to obtain sufficient data on a 
diverse population to enable full psychometric testing of the measures 
and compare subgroups to ensure that the measure can be used in diverse 
ECE settings.
    Respondents: Directors of center-based child care programs, home-
based child care programs, Early Head Start programs, and Head Start 
programs; center-based and home-based child care providers and ECE 
teachers; and parents whose children are enrolled in these diverse-
types of ECE settings.
