Renewal of Agency Information Collection for Navajo Partitioned Lands Grazing Permits, 15036-15037 [2013-05492]

Download as PDF 15036 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 46 / Friday, March 8, 2013 / Notices section or by calling (301) 443–1104, regarding the IHS information collection activities (OMB Control No. 1076–0136). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES I. Abstract Representatives of the BIA and IHS seek renewal of the approval for information collections conducted under their joint rule, 25 CFR part 900, implementing the ISDEAA. The Act requires the joint rule to govern how contracts are awarded to Indian tribes, thereby avoiding the unnecessary burden or confusion associated with two sets of rules and information collection requirements. See 25 U.S.C. 450k(a)(2)(A)(ii). The joint rule at 25 CFR part 900 was developed through negotiated rulemaking with tribes in 1996 and governs, among other things, what must be included in a tribe’s initial ISDEAA contract proposal to the BIA or IHS. There is no change to the approved burden hours for this information collection. The information requirements for this joint rule represent significant differences from other agencies in several respects. Under the Act, the Secretaries of Health and Human Services and the Department of the Interior are directed to enter into selfdetermination contracts with tribes upon request, unless specific declination criteria apply, and, generally, tribes may renew these contracts annually, whereas other agencies provide grants on a discretionary or competitive basis. Both the BIA and IHS award contracts for multiple programs whereas other agencies usually award single grants to tribes. The BIA and IHS use the information collected to determine applicant eligibility, evaluate applicant capabilities, protect the service population, safeguard Federal funds and other resources, and permit the Federal agencies to administer and evaluate contract programs. Tribal governments or tribal organizations provide the information by submitting Public Law 93–638 contract proposals to the appropriate Federal agency. No third party notification or public disclosure burden is associated with this collection. II. Request for Comments The BIA and IHS request your comments on this collection concerning: (a) The necessity of this information collection for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (hours VerDate Mar<15>2010 18:44 Mar 07, 2013 Jkt 229001 and cost) of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) ways we could enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways we could minimize the burden of the collection of the information on the respondents. Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it has a valid OMB Control Number. It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section. Before including your address, phone number, email address or other personally identifiable 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. III. Data OMB Control Number: 1076–0136.

For example, subpart C relates to provisions of the contents for the initial contract proposal. The respondents do not incur the burden associated with subpart C when contracts are renewed.
