Abstract: The National Climate Change and Wildlife Science Center (NCCWSC) has the responsibility to manage DOI Climate Science Centers (CSCs) that are co-located at cooperating organizations at non-USGS facilities. The NCCWSC works in close partnership with the climate change science and natural and cultural resource management communities to understand high priority science needs and to develop science information tools that can help resource managers develop strategies for responding to climate change. This program provides funding for researchers through cooperative agreements that involve climate change science as a major component. Eight DOI CSCs have been established. The DOI CSCs and host partnerships have been established on a 5-year renewable basis. The initial information collection activity was performed to identify the preferred locations/institutional partners for Climate Science Centers. This was a full and open competition announced on Grants.gov. Based on this information, CSC host institutions have been identified and have entered cooperative agreements with USGS. At present, information collection activities focus on annual performance and financial reports, required under the cooperative agreements. This information is used to conduct an annual performance evaluation of each CSC’s progress in meeting the goals of the agreement. Frequency of Collection: Once annually. Estimated Number and Description of Respondents: We expect to receive approximately 40 responses (annual status reports) from a combination of state/local and tribal governments as well as from individuals representing the private sector.

Comments: To comply with the public consultation process, on January 11, 2013, we published a Federal Register notice (78 FR 2422) announcing that we would submit this ICR to OMB for approval. The notice provided the required 60-day public comment period, which ended March 12, 2013. In response to our Federal Register Notice, we received two comments, which consisted of general invectives about the U.S. Government and did not pertain to this information collection. We again invite comments concerning this information collection on: (1) Whether or not the collection of information is necessary, including whether or not the information will have practical utility; (2) the accuracy of our estimate of the burden for this collection of information; (3) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents.
