SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Social Security’s programs affect nearly every American and contribute significantly to the Nation’s economy. Today, the challenge of service delivery is greater than at any other point in our history. Over the past few years, requests for our core services have risen dramatically as the population grew and baby boomers aged, passing through their most disability-prone years before retiring. In addition, we also have experienced huge increases in our workloads due to the economic downturn. These unprecedented workloads, combined with budget constraints, have placed serious strains on our service delivery. This means that we must work smarter to maintain the productivity gains of the past several years. We intend to rely on technologydriven innovation, coupled with VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:21 Mar 11, 2013 Jkt 229001 ongoing policy updates and streamlined business processes, to continue to transform our agency. We designed our SDP as part of our roadmap for continuing to provide excellent public service over the next decade, despite the challenges we expect to face. When we initially developed the SDP, we sought suggestions from the public as to how we can continue to provide the best possible service. (77 FR 44306 (2012)). We have incorporated those suggestions into this version of the document. We invite you to review the document and send us any additional comments you have. Please see the information under ADDRESSES earlier in the document for methods to provide us your comments. We will not respond to your comments, but will consider them as we finalize our SDP.

Please note that comments submitted in response to this Notice are public record. Before including any detailed personal information, you should be aware that your comments as submitted, including your personal information, will be available for public review. Abstract of proposed collection: The Secretary of State is authorized to issue U.S. passports under 22 U.S.C. 211a et seq, 8 U.S.C. 1104, and Executive Order 11295 (August 5, 1966). Department regulations provide that individuals whose valid or potentially valid U.S. passports were lost or stolen must make a report of the lost or stolen passport to the Department of State before they receive a new passport, so that the lost or stolen passport can be PO 00000 Frm 00120 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 15799 invalidated (22 CFR parts 50 and 51). The Enhanced Border Security and Visa Entry Reform Act of 2002 (8 U.S.C. 1737) requires the Department of State to collect accurate information on lost or stolen U.S. passports and to enter that information into a data system. Form DS–64 collects information identifying the person who held the lost or stolen passport and describing the circumstances under which the passport was lost or stolen. As required by the cited authorities, we use the information collected to accurately identify the passport that must be invalidated and to make a record of the circumstances surrounding the lost or stolen passport. False statements made knowingly or willfully on passport forms, in affidavits or other supporting documents are punishable by fine and/or imprisonment under U.S. law. (18 U.S.C. 1001, 1542– 1544). Methodology: This form is used in conjunction with a DS–11, ‘‘Application for a U.S. Passport’’, or submitted separately to report loss or theft of a U.S. passport. Passport Services collects the information when a U.S. citizen or noncitizen national applies for a new U.S. passport and has been issued a previous, still valid U.S. passport that has been lost or stolen, or when a passport holder independently reports it lost or stolen. Passport applicants can either download the form from the Internet or obtain the form at any Passport Agency, Acceptance Facility, Embassy, or Consulate. Additional Information: In addition to general format changes, the following content changes have been made to the form: • Section 1—the field ‘‘Driver’s License or Military ID Number’’ was added to assist in the prevention of fraudulently submitted DS–64 forms. • Section 2—was revised in its entirety breaking out the two main questions into items 2a through 2e to more efficiently organize the information we are requesting from the applicant. • Section 3—A numbered, dark blue ribbon with instructions was added to clearly delineate the form sections and thereby assist the applicant to more efficiently review the information on the form. • Section 3—the Department included a second signature and date line to allow for the signature of a second Parent/Guardian, if present, in keeping with the requirements of the DS–11 form. • Section 3—at the bottom of this section, the Department added the E:\FR\FM\12MRN1.SGM 12MRN1
