Part II of the proposed order prohibits respondents from collecting any data through history sniffing—running software code on a Web page to determine whether a user has previously visited a Web page by checking how a user’s browser styles the display of a hyperlink or by accessing a user’s browser cache—or using any data obtained by history sniffing. Part III of the proposed order prohibits respondents from using, disclosing, selling, renting, leasing, or transferring any information that was collected using history sniffing. In addition, within five (5) days after the date of service of the order, respondents must permanently delete or destroy all information collected using history sniffing. Parts IV through VIII of the proposed order are reporting and compliance provisions. Part IV requires that respondents retain, for a period of three (3) years, documents relating to its compliance with the order. Part V requires dissemination of the order to all current and future principals, officers, directors, and managers; and all current and future managers, employees, agents, and representatives who have responsibilities on behalf of respondents with respect to the subject matter of this order. Part VI ensures notification to the FTC of changes in corporate status. Part VII mandates that respondents submit an initial compliance report to the FTC and make available to the FTC subsequent reports. Part VIII is a provision ‘‘sunsetting’’ the order after twenty (20) years, with certain exceptions. The purpose of the analysis is to aid public comment on the proposed order. It is not intended to constitute an official interpretation of the proposed complaint or order or to modify the order’s terms in any way. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with By direction of the Commission.

Purpose FAR 22.1103 requires that all professional employees are compensated fairly and properly. Accordingly, FAR 52.222–46, Evaluation of Compensation for Professional Employees, is required to be inserted in solicitations for negotiated service contracts when the contract amount is expected to exceed $650,000 and the service to be provided will require meaningful numbers of professional employees. The purpose of the provision at FAR 52.222–46 is to require offerors to submit for evaluation a total compensation plan setting forth proposed salaries and fringe benefits for professional employees working on the contract. Plans indicating unrealistically low professional employees’ compensation may be assessed adversely as one of the factors considered in making a contract award. B. Analysis of Public Comments One respondent submitted public comments on the extension of the previously approved information collection. The analysis of the public comments is summarized as follows: PO 00000 Frm 00048 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Comment: The respondent commented that the extension of the information collection would violate the fundamental purposes of the Paperwork Reduction Act because of the burden it puts on the entity submitting the information and the agency collecting the information. Response: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), agencies can request OMB approval of an existing information collection. The PRA requires that agencies use the Federal Register notice and comment process, to extend OMB’s approval, at least every three years. This extension, to a previously approved information collection, pertains to the provision at FAR 52.222–46, Evaluation of Compensation for Professional Employees, in solicitations for negotiated service contracts when the contract amount is expected to exceed $650,000 and the service to be provided will require meaningful numbers of professional employees. The purpose of the provision at FAR 52.222–46 is to require offerors to submit for evaluation a total compensation plan setting forth proposed salaries and fringe benefits for professional employees working on the contract. Plans indicating unrealistically low professional employees’ compensation may be assessed adversely as one of the factors considered in making a contract award. Not granting this extension would remove Government evaluators’ discretion to adversely assess offers containing unrealistically low professional employees’ compensation, and would result in the Government’s inability to ensure that professional employees are fairly and properly compensated for their work. Comment: The respondent commented that the agency did not accurately estimate the public burden challenging that the agency’s methodology for calculating it is insufficient and inadequate and does not reflect the total burden. The respondent stated that the estimate of one response per respondent annually and .5 hours of burden per response is understated, many companies submit upwards of 100 plans per year, and the burden is more likely in the range of five hours. For this reason, the respondent provided that the agency should reassess the estimated total burden hours and revise the estimate upwards to be more accurate, as was done in FAR Case 2007–006. The same respondent also provided that the burden of compliance with the information collection requirement greatly exceeds the agency’s estimate E:\FR\FM\11DEN1.SGM 11DEN1
