Information is collected in writing by a representative of a local BioWatch jurisdiction (either an employee, or a contractor) assigned responsibility for filter installation, removal, and transportation using a standardized log developed by the BioWatch Systems Program Office (SPO) and supplied by the jurisdiction. A filter holder log is initiated for each new filter sample on installation in the aerosol collector device, and is completed (normally) 24 hours later when the filter sample is removed from the device for transportation to the analysis laboratory. The completed logs are archived by the local BioWatch jurisdiction for a period of one-year to support law enforcement activity. To date, no records have been provided to Federal government organizations to support operational events; however, local jurisdiction record keeping is audited as part of the BioWatch Evaluation Program (BWEP) to monitor for system-wide problems and to ensure that written records are being maintained in accordance with BioWatch Program requirements. A personal digital assistant (PDA) is used to collect many of the data elements captured by the filter holder logs. However due to mechanical failure, possibility of spooking there is a need for redundancy in the form of paper copies. A personal digital assistant (PDA) based data collection system—the BioWatch Sample Management System (SMS)—is used to collect electronic information related to sample management to support program operations and logistics. The SMS is a software system designed to track sample holders and other media from the time they are created, until they are delivered to the laboratory. The software monitors when the sample holder was assembled, deployed to the field, placed in the collector, removed from the collector, and delivered to the laboratory, along with who was responsible for each operation. The SMS software produces reports used by other software in the BioWatch system, such as the Centers for Disease Control Laboratory Results Messenger software. As directed by the FBI, a written record tied to each sample establishing chain of custody is to be created to support law VerDate Mar<15>2010 13:49 Jul 24, 2013 Jkt 229001 enforcement activity; the FBI has informed the BioWatch Program of the determination that the electronic SMS cannot meet the FBI’s evidence recording requirements. There has been an increase in the annual burden associated with this collection. This increase is due to more locations using the holder filter log on a daily basis. Previously there were 522 locations and now there are 605 locations. This has increased the number responses annually by 30,817 and the hours by 515. There is no change in the burden time per response. There is no change in the information being collection. However, there are proposed changes to DHS 9500, Filter Holder Log. These changes include: • Repositioning of Filter Installation and Filter Removal Tables. Currently the tables are viewed (top to bottom) Filter Installation then Filter Removal. These tables have been repositioned to align with the actual sequence of events at the work site * * * there is removal of the old filter first followed by installation of the new filter. • Site Name field changed to Number. This has been changed to comply with the BioWatch Standard Operation Procedure (SOP). • Within the Filter Installation table under Physical Security Check, On Arrival data elements have been removed. These elements no longer need to be collected because it is already covered in the Filter Removal portion of the procedure. • Within the Filter Removal and Filter Installation remove the word Collector and replace with PSU. This has been changed to reflect the type of collector, and its unique number. The Office of Management and Budget is particularly interested in comments which: 1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 4. Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses.
