Under the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) 1 and delegated authority from the Secretary of Homeland Security, TSA has broad responsibility and authority for ‘‘security in all modes of transportation * * * including security responsibilities * * * over modes of transportation that are exercised by the Department of Transportation.’’ 2 TSA is specifically empowered to develop policies, strategies, and plans for dealing with threats to transportation,3 oversee the implementation and adequacy of security measures at transportation facilities,4 and carry out other appropriate duties relating to transportation security.5 tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Purpose and Description of Data Collection The purpose of the PCSR program is to develop first-hand knowledge of a pipeline operator’s corporate security policies and procedures, establish and maintain working relationships with key pipeline security personnel, and identify and share smart security practices observed at individual facilities to help enhance and improve the security of the pipeline industry. To this end, the PCSR Program provides TSA with a method to discuss security-related matters with pipeline operators. The PCSR encompasses site visits and interviews and is one piece of a much larger domain awareness, prevention, and protection program in support of TSA’s and the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) missions. In carrying out PCSRs, subject matter experts from TSA’s Pipeline Security Branch visit pipeline operators throughout the nation that elected to adopt security plans. These are 1 Public Law 107–71, 115 Stat. 597 (November 19, 2001), codified at 49 U.S.C. 114. 2 See 49 U.S.C. 114(d). The TSA Administrator’s current authorities under ATSA have been delegated to him by the Secretary of Homeland Security. Section 403(2) of the Homeland Security Act (HSA) of 2002, Public Law 107–296, 116 Stat. 2315 (2002), transferred all functions of TSA, including those of the Secretary of Transportation and the Under Secretary of Transportation of Security related to TSA, to the Secretary of Homeland Security. Pursuant to DHS Delegation Number 7060.2, the Secretary delegated to the Administrator of TSA, subject to the Secretary’s guidance and control, the authority vested in the Secretary with respect to TSA, including that in section 403(2) of the HSA. 3 49 U.S.C. 114(f)(3). 4 49 U.S.C. 114(f)(11). 5 49 U.S.C. 114(f)(15). VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:35 Feb 25, 2013 Jkt 229001 voluntary face-to-face visits, usually at the headquarters facility of the pipeline owners/operator. Typically, TSA sends one to three employees to conduct a three-to-four hour interview with representatives from the owner/ operator. The TSA representatives analyze the owner’s/operator’s security plan and determine if the mitigation measures included in the plan are being properly implemented. TSA then visits one or two of the owners/operators assets to further assess the implementation of the owner’s/ operator’s security plan. TSA conducts this collection of information on security measures to identify security gaps. The discussions also provide TSA with a method to encourage the pipeline owners/ operators to be diligent in implementing and maintaining security-related improvements. TSA has developed a question set to aid in the conducting of PCSRs. The PCSR Question Set drives the TSAoperator discussion and is the central data source for all security information collected. The PCSR Question Set was developed based on government and industry guidance to obtain information from a pipeline operator about its security plan and processes. The questions are designed to examine the company’s current state of security as well as to address measures that are applied if there is a change in the National Terrorism Advisory System. In application, topics such as security program management, vulnerability assessments, components of the security plan, security training, and emergency communications enable the PCSR Teams to assess the operator’s security plan by evaluating a broad range of security issues such as physical security, cyber security, communication, and training. The PCSR Question Set also includes sections for facility site visits and operator contact information. The questions and subsequent answers help provide TSA with a snapshot of a company’s security posture and is instrumental in developing smart practices and security measures. Use of Results This PCSR collection provides TSA with real-time information on current security practices within the pipeline mode of the surface transportation sector. This information allows TSA to adapt programs to the changing security threat, while incorporating an understanding of the improvements owners/operators make in their security measures. Without this information, the PO 00000 Frm 00063 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 ability of TSA to perform its security mission would be severely hindered. Additionally, the relationships these face-to-face contacts foster are critical to the Federal government’s ability to reach out to the pipeline stakeholders affected by the PCSRs. TSA assures respondents that the portion of their responses that is deemed Sensitive Security Information (SSI) will be protected in accordance with procedures meeting the transmission, handling, and storage requirements of SSI set forth in 49 CFR parts 15 and 1520. The annual hour burden for this information collection is estimated to be 120 hours. While TSA estimates there to be a total universe of 2200 potential respondents, the estimate is based on TSA conducting 15 PCSR visits per year, each visit lasting a total of 8 hours. There is no cost burden to respondents. Issued in Arlington, Virginia, on February 20, 2013. Susan L. Perkins, TSA Paperwork Reduction Act Officer, Office of Information Technology.

Chapter 35, as amended). Division B of the Department of Defense Emergency Supplemental Appropriations to Address Hurricanes in the Gulf of Mexico and Pandemic Influenza Act, 2006 (Section 901 of Public Law No. 109–148, enacted on December 30, 2005), among other provisions, makes emergency supplemental appropriations to address the hurricane devastation in the Gulf of Mexico. Section 901 of this appropriations act authorized PHAs in federally declared disaster areas as a result of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita to combine their Capital Funds (section 9(d) of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (42 U.S.C. 1437 et seq.) (1937 Act)), Operating Funds (section 9(e) of the 1937 Act), and Housing Choice Voucher Funds (section 8(o) of the 1937 Act) to assist families who were displaced by Hurricane Katrina or Rita. HUD determined that this provision permitted PHAs to use these funds interchangeably. In practice, most PHAs used Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) funds for the public housing Capital Fund Program (CFP) purposes, and had up to five years to expend the HCV funds for those uses. HUD implemented Section 901 through publication in the Federal Register on July 28, 2006, of FR–5067– N–01 (Volume 71, Page 42996) entitled Implementation Guidance for Section SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: E:\FR\FM\26FEN1.SGM 26FEN1
