Download as PDF 41062 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 131 / Tuesday, July 9, 2013 / Notices Provisions specified at 40 CFR part 63, subpart EEEEE. Owners or operators of the affected facilities must submit an initial notification report, performance tests, and periodic reports and results. Owners or operators are also required to maintain records of the occurrence and duration of any startup, shutdown, or malfunction in the operation of an affected facility, or any period during which the monitoring system is inoperative. Reports, at a minimum, are required semiannually. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: Owners or operators of iron and steel foundries. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory (40 CFR part 63, subpart EEEEE). Estimated number of respondents: 98 (total). Frequency of response: Initially, occasionally, and semiannually. Total estimated burden: 29,747 hours (per year). ‘‘Burden’’ is defined at 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Total estimated cost: $3,309,697 (per year), includes $400,060 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in the Estimates: There is no change in labor hours in this ICR compared to the previous ICR. This is due to two considerations: (1) The regulations have not changed over the past three years and are not anticipated to change over the next three years; and (2) the growth rate for the industry is very low, negative or non-existent, so there is no significant change in the overall burden. However, there is an adjustment increase in the respondent labor costs due to an increase in labor rates. Additionally, there is an adjustment decrease in the Agency labor costs due to a correction of mathematical error. The previous ICR incorrectly calculated total Agency labor cost for each burden item. John Moses, Director, Collection Strategies Division.

In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC or Commission) announces that it submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) a request for a 90-day emergency extension of the Demographic Information on Applicants for Federal Employment to be effective after the current July 31, 2013 expiration date.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Demographic Information on Applicants for Federal Employment is an optional form for the use by federal agencies in gathering data on the race, sex and national origin status of applicants. SUMMARY: Overview of Information Collection Collection Title: Demographic Information on Federal Job Applicants. OMB Control No.: 3046–0046. Description of Affected Public: Individuals submitting applications for federal employment. Number of Annual Responses: 5,800. Estimated Time per Respondent: 3 minutes. Total Annual Burden Hours: (5,800 × 3)/60 = 290. Annual Federal Cost: None. Abstract: Under section 717 of Title VII and 501 of the Rehabilitation Act, the Commission is charged with reviewing and approving federal agencies plans to affirmatively address potential discrimination before it occurs. Pursuant to such oversight responsibilities, the Commission has established systems to monitor compliance with Title VII and the Rehabilitation Act by requiring federal agencies to evaluate their employment practices through the collection and analysis of data on the race, national origin, sex and disability status of applicants for both permanent and temporary employment. Response by applicants is optional. The information obtained will be used by federal agencies only for evaluating whether an agency’s recruitment activities are effectively reaching all segments of the relevant labor pool, to gauge progress and trends over time with respect to equal opportunity goals, and to track progress toward meeting the recruitment and hiring strategies. The voluntary responses are treated in PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 a highly confidential and anonymous manner, are not shared with those involved in the selection process or the supervisor (if the person is hired) and will not be placed in the employees’ personnel file. The information is not provided to any panel rating the applications, to selecting officials, to anyone who can affect the application or to the public. Rather, the information is used in summary form to determine trends over many selections within a given occupational or organization area. No information from the form is entered into an official personnel file. Burden Statement: Because of the predominant use of online application systems, which require only pointing and clicking on the selected responses, and because the form requests only eight questions regarding basic information, the EEOC estimates that an applicant can complete the form in approximately 3 minutes or less. Based on past experience, we expect that 5,800 applicants will choose to complete the form. Once OMB approves the use of this common form, federal agencies may request OMB approval to use this common form without having to publish notices and request public comments for 60 and 30 days. Each agency must account for the burden associated with their use of the common form. Dated: July 2, 2013. For the Commission. Jacqueline A. Berrien, Chair.
