Download as PDF 18982 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 60 / Thursday, March 28, 2013 / Notices The 1364C captures an offeror’s proposed interest rate and amortization period for the tenant improvements, in addition to the lessor’s overhead fees. The Succeeding and Superseding Lease Model uses GSA Form 1364D. These leases are negotiated with the existing lessor after advertisements and cost benefit analyses result in a determination that such a lease is in the best interests of the government. The form has less data input required than for a Standard lease; it also includes current rental rate information, supplied by the Government. The 1364A–1, 1364B, and 1364C summarize an offeror’s technical compliance with some important statutory and regulatory requirements to make the overall offer process easier for offerors to understand (e.g., accessibility and seismic standards, flood plain compliance, asbestos). The 1364C also limits the collection of tenant improvement overhead fees to the architect/engineering fees and lessor’s project management fees. A notice was published in the Federal Register at 78 FR 303, on January 3, 2013. No comments were received. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 3565. Responses per Respondent: 1.

Background After an analysis of the per diem rates established for FY 2013 (see the Federal Register notice at 77 FR 54578, September 5, 2012, and FTR Bulletin 13–01), non-standard area per diem rates are being established for the following locations: State of Oklahoma • Garfield County State of Texas • Midland County CONUS per diem rates are published as FTR per diem bulletins available on the Internet at www.gsa.gov/perdiem and www.gsa.gov/bulletins. This process ensures timely notice of increases or decreases in per diem rates established by GSA for Federal employees on official travel within CONUS. Notices published periodically in the Federal Register, such as this one, now constitute the only notification of revisions in CONUS per diem rates to agencies. Dated: March 22, 2013. Craig J.

The Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 directed the Secretary of Health and Human Services to establish the maximum number of cytology slides that any individual may screen in a 24 hour period; to establish certain quality assurance standards; to set personnel standards; and to provide for periodic proficiency testing of cytotechnologists and pathologists involved in screening and interpreting cytological preparations. The regulations implementing CLIA, published in the Federal Register of February 28, 1992, established that the maximum number of slides examined by an individual in each 24 hour period was not to exceed 100 slides and could not be examined in less than an eight-hour day. The regulation further established that the technical supervisor is required to evaluate the performance of cytotechnologists at least every six months and determine their individual maximum daily workload limit. CDC requests OMB approval to collect information on cytology workload practice assessment through a survey on workflow and performance practices of cytotechnologists. Clearance is being requested for one year. In 1992, when the regulation was published, all Pap slides were conventional ‘‘Pap smears.’’ In a conventional Pap smear, samples are smeared directly onto a glass E:\FR\FM\28MRN1.SGM 28MRN1
