Adults (18+ years) will be recruited through the exhibit using two different approaches. First, interactive displays within the exhibit will offer visitors the opportunity to text responses to questions related to genomics and genomic information. Respondents will be sent an automatic invitation to complete online surveys and a link to the Web site containing these surveys. Text message content will be collected by a third party short code texting service that will remove personal identifying information from the text message responses. Second, participants will also be recruited via a link to the surveys on the National Museum of Natural History’s Web site. The URL for this survey site may also be advertised separately through media and social media channels. The surveys will be available on a designated survey Web site hosted by the NHGRI. Visitors to the survey Web site can fill out the surveys if they choose. After completing an online consent confirming eligibility and a short demographic module, participants will be offered the option to complete one or more of the seven available surveys. In 2012, 7.6 million people visited the National Museum of Natural History. We estimate that our recruitment efforts will reach 1% of these visitors, 75% of whom will choose to complete one or more of the surveys. If these anticipated recruitment numbers are not met, a market research survey company may be used to recruit participants. The data to be collected are primarily for research purposes; responses will be summarized and published in scientific journals as well as made available to the public through PubMed Central. Responses may also be used to inform community education programs sponsored by the NHGRI. OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 32,752. koehlyl@mail.nih.gov. Formal requests for additional plans and instruments must be requested in writing.

Proposed Collection: Genomics and Society Public Surveys in Conjunction with National Museum of Natural History Genome Exhibit, 0925–NEW, National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), National Institutes of Health (NIH). Need and Use of Information Collection: The National Human Genome Research Institute’s (NHGRI) strategic plan puts a strong focus on understanding more fully the societal implications of recent genomic advances. Currently, there is limited knowledge about the public’s view regarding genomics and society. The upcoming exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History, ‘‘Genome: Unlocking Life’s Code’’, provides a unique opportunity to obtain the perspectives of the public about the role of genomics in society. Surveys included in this project consider a broad range of topics related to Genomics and Society, including the following content areas: • Beliefs about the role of genomics in health conditions and associated risk factors; • The role of friends, family, media, and health professionals in gathering and communicating health risk information; • Implications of genetics knowledge in understanding race and ancestry; • Opinions regarding genetics knowledge necessary for making legal, health, and lifestyle decisions. The exhibit is scheduled to open in June, 2013, and will reside at the National Museum of Natural History for one year after which it will travel across the country. Data collection for this project is anticipated to begin fall, 2013 and continue through the course of the exhibit.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The Department of Homeland Security is seeking Expressions of Interest from laboratory accreditation bodies, which are International Laboratory Accreditation Cooperation (ILAC) Full Members and signatories to the ILAC mutual recognition arrangements (MRAs) and which are capable of providing accreditation services for laboratories participating in the Project 25 (P25) Compliance Assessment Program (P25 CAP). P25 is a standard which enables interoperability among digital two-way land mobile radio communications products created by and for public safety professionals. P25 CAP is a formal, independent process for ensuring that communications equipment that is declared by the manufacturer to be P25 compliant in fact meets P25 standards. Accreditation of the test laboratories that carry out the compliance assessment is currently conducted by P25 CAP itself, but DHS is considering a transition to SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 May 28, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background P25 is a standards development process for the design, manufacture, and evaluation of interoperable digital twoway land mobile radio communications products created by and for public safety professionals. The goal of P25 is to specify formal standards for interfaces between the various components of a land mobile radio system commonly used by emergency responders in portable handheld and mobile vehicle-mounted devices. The P25 standard enables interoperability among different manufacturers’ products. P25 CAP was developed by DHS and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) to identify equipment that complies with P25 standards. P25 CAP provides first responders with documentation of interoperability they need to inform their purchasing decisions. P25 CAP is a voluntary program that allows manufacturers to publicly attest to their products’ compliance with P25 standards through a Suppliers’ Declaration of Compliance Document (SDoC), substantiated by an Official Summary Test Report.
