SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Control Number: 1010–0176. Title: 30 CFR 585, Renewable Energy and Alternate Uses of Existing Facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf. Forms: BOEM–0002, BOEM–0003, BOEM–0004, BOEM–0005, BOEM– 0006. Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended (43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to issue leases, easements, or rights-ofway on the OCS for activities that produce or support production, transportation, or transmission of energy from sources other than oil and gas (renewable energy). Specifically, subsection 8(p) of the OCS Lands Act, as amended by section 388 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 (Pub. L. 109–58), directs the Secretary of the Interior to issue any necessary regulations to carry out the OCS renewable energy program. The Secretary delegated this authority to the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM). The BOEM has issued regulations at 30 CFR part 585 that establish procedures for administering the renewable energy program on the OCS and for authorizing other energy and marine-related activities that involve the alternate use of existing facilities on the OCS. This notice concerns the reporting and recordkeeping elements required by these regulations. Respondents operating under these regulations conduct commercial and noncommercial technology projects that include installation, construction, operation and maintenance, and decommissioning of offshore facilities, as well as possible onshore support facilities. The BOEM must ensure that these activities and operations on the OCS are performed in a safe and environmentally sound manner, do not interfere with the rights of other users on the OCS, and balance the protection and development of OCS resources. Therefore, BOEM needs information concerning the proposed activities, facilities, safety equipment, inspections and tests, and natural and manmade hazards near the site, as well as assurance of fiscal responsibility. The BOEM uses forms to collect some information to ensure proper and efficient administration of OCS renewable energy leases and grants and to document the financial responsibility of lessees and grantees. Forms BOEM– 0002, BOEM–0003, BOEM–0004, and BOEM–0006 are used by renewable energy entities on the OCS to designate an operator and to assign or relinquish a lease or grant. Form BOEM–0005 is used to procure and submit a bond for the purpose of meeting financial assurance requirements as set forth in the regulations. As a result of respondent input, BOEM is rewording one line on BOEM–0005 to match language on a similar form for the oil and gas program; this does not change the burden. The BOEM maintains the submitted forms as official lease and grant records pertaining to operating responsibilities, ownership, and financial responsibility. We will protect information considered proprietary under the Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing regulations (43 CFR part 2) and under regulations at 30 CFR 585.113, addressing disclosure of data and information to be made available to the public and others. No items of a sensitive nature are collected. Responses are mandatory or required to obtain a benefit. Frequency: On occasion or annually. Description of Respondents: Companies interested in renewable energy-related uses on the OCS and holders of leases and grants under 30 CFR Part 585. Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated annual hour burden for this collection is 30,902 hours. The following table details the individual components and estimated hour burdens. In calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider these to be usual and customary and took that into account in estimating the burden.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    OMB Control Number: 1010-0176.
    Title: 30 CFR 585, Renewable Energy and Alternate Uses of Existing 
Facilities on the Outer Continental Shelf.
    Forms: BOEM-0002, BOEM-0003, BOEM-0004, BOEM-0005, BOEM-0006.
    Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act, as amended 
(43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the 
Secretary of the Interior to issue leases, easements, or rights-of-way 
on the OCS for activities that produce or support production, 
transportation, or transmission of energy from sources other than oil 
and gas (renewable energy). Specifically, subsection 8(p) of the OCS 
Lands Act, as amended by section 388 of the Energy Policy Act of 2005 
(Pub. L. 109-58), directs the Secretary of the Interior to issue any 
necessary regulations to carry out the OCS renewable energy program. 
The Secretary delegated this authority to the Bureau of Ocean Energy 
Management (BOEM).
    The BOEM has issued regulations at 30 CFR part 585 that establish 
procedures for administering the renewable energy program on the OCS 
and for authorizing other energy and marine-related activities that 
involve the alternate use of existing facilities on the OCS. This 
notice concerns the reporting and recordkeeping elements required by 
these regulations.
    Respondents operating under these regulations conduct commercial 
and noncommercial technology projects that include installation, 
construction, operation and maintenance, and decommissioning of 
offshore facilities, as well as possible onshore support facilities. 
The BOEM must ensure that these activities and operations on the OCS 
are performed in a safe and environmentally sound manner, do not 
interfere with the rights of other users on the OCS, and balance the 
protection and development of OCS resources. Therefore, BOEM needs 
information concerning the proposed activities, facilities, safety 
equipment, inspections and tests, and natural and manmade hazards near 
the site, as well as assurance of fiscal responsibility.
    The BOEM uses forms to collect some information to ensure proper 
and efficient administration of OCS renewable energy leases and grants 
and to document the financial responsibility of lessees and grantees. 
Forms BOEM-0002, BOEM-0003, BOEM-0004, and BOEM-0006 are used by 
renewable energy entities on the OCS to designate an operator and to 
assign or relinquish a lease or grant. Form BOEM-0005 is used to 
procure and submit a bond for the purpose of meeting financial 
assurance requirements as set forth in the regulations. As a result of 
respondent input, BOEM is rewording one line on BOEM-0005 to match 
language on a similar form for the oil and gas program; this does not 
change the burden. The BOEM maintains the submitted forms as official 
lease and grant records pertaining to operating responsibilities, 
ownership, and financial responsibility.
    We will protect information considered proprietary under the 
Freedom of Information Act (5 U.S.C. 552) and its implementing 
regulations (43 CFR part 2) and under regulations at 30 CFR 585.113, 
addressing disclosure of data and information to be made available to 
the public and others. No items of a sensitive nature are collected. 
Responses are mandatory or required to obtain a benefit.
    Frequency: On occasion or annually.
    Description of Respondents: Companies interested in renewable 
energy-related uses on the OCS and holders of leases and grants under 
30 CFR Part 585.
    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden: The estimated 
annual hour burden for this collection is 30,902 hours. The following 
table details the individual components and estimated hour burdens. In 
calculating the burdens, we assumed that respondents perform certain 
requirements in the normal course of their activities. We consider 
these to be usual and customary and took that into account in 
estimating the burden.

\1\ In the future, BOEM may require electronic filing of certain submissions.
\2\ Retention of these records is usual and customary business practice; the burden is primarily to make them
  available to BOEM and CVAs.

    Estimated Reporting and Recordkeeping Non-Hour Cost Burden: The 
estimated non-hour cost burdens total $3,816,000. The non-hour cost 
burdens consist of service fees for BOEM document/study preparation, 
costs for paying a contractor instead of BOEM, and costs for a site-
specific study and report to evaluate the cause of harm to natural 
resources.
    Public Disclosure Statement: The PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et seq.) 
provides that an agency may not conduct or sponsor a collection of 
information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. 
Until OMB approves a collection of information, you are not obligated 
to respond.

    Comments: Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the PRA (44 U.S.C. 3501, et 
seq.,) requires each agency ``* * * to provide notice * * * and 
otherwise consult with members of the public and affected agencies 
concerning each proposed collection of information * * *'' Agencies 
must specifically solicit comments to: (a) Evaluate whether the 
collection is necessary or useful; (b) evaluate the accuracy of the 
burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) enhance the 
quality, usefulness, and clarity of the information to be collected; 
and (d) minimize the burden on the respondents, including the use of 
technology.
    To comply with the public consultation process, on October 10, 
2012, BOEM published a Federal Register notice (77 FR 61633) announcing 
that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. This notice provided 
the required 60-day comment period. We received one comment. The Marine 
Mammal Commission states that BOEM's reporting requirements provide a 
systematic and uniform method to track compliance with regulations, 
including those that protect marine resources. Therefore, the 
Commission supports BOEM's request to OMB to approve the renewal of 
this collection.
    Public Availability of Comments: Before including your address, 
phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information 
in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment--
including your personal identifying information--may be made publicly 
available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold 
your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot 
guarantee that we will be able to do so.
