ACTION: Notice. This is notice, in accordance with 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404, that the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Department of Health and Human Services, is contemplating the grant of a start-up exclusive license to practice the inventions embodied in: US provisional Applications 61/639,688 (E–294–2011/ 0–US–01) filed April 27, 2012 and PCT application PCT/US2013034639 (E–294–2011/0–PCT–02) filed March 29, 2013, each entitled ‘‘Topical Antibiotic with Immune Stimulating oligodeoxynucleotide Molecules to Speed Wound Healing’’ and US application 12/205,756 (E–328–2001/1– US–01) filed September 2008 and issued as US patent 8,466,116, each entitled ‘‘Use of CpG Oligodeoxynucleotides to Induce Epithelial Cell Growth’’ to Tollgene having a place of business at 2429 Ginny Way, Lafayette, CO 80026. The patent rights in these inventions have been assigned to the United States of America. DATES: Only written comments and/or application for a license that are received by the NIH Office of Technology Transfer on or before August 16, 2013 will be considered. ADDRESSES: Requests for a copy of the patent application, inquiries, comments and other materials relating to the contemplated license should be directed to: Tedd Fenn, Office of Technology Transfer, National Institutes of Health, 6011 Executive Boulevard, Suite 325, Rockville, MD 20852–3804; Email: Tedd.Fenn@mail.nih.gov; Telephone: 424–500–2005; Facsimile: 301–402– 0220. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The prospective start-up exclusive license will be royalty bearing and will comply mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:02 Jul 31, 2013 Jkt 229001 with the terms and conditions of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR 404. The prospective exclusive license may be granted unless, within fifteen (15) days from the date of this published Notice, NIH receives written evidence and argument that establishes that the grant of the license would not be consistent with the requirements of 35 U.S.C. 209 and 37 CFR part 404. These technologies relate to relate to use of CpG oligodeoxynucleotides (ODNs) to accelerate wound healing. The E–294–2011/0, technology relates to an antibiotic composition containing the toll-like receptor-7 (TLR7) ligand (imidazoquinoline) and an immunostimulatory K ODN. There is evidence that this formulation may produce more rapid wound healing versus standard antibiotic formulations. Because standard antibiotics eliminate bacteria at a wound site, they also eliminate the molecular signals present in bacterial DNA that stimulate the immune system’s wound healing processes. The ODN and imidazoquinoline act as artificial immune stimulants that mimic the bacterial signals to improve healing rates. The E–328–2001/1 technology relates to a method of inducing epithelial cell growth by administration of immunostimulatory ODNs. The stimulation of epithelial cell growth also promotes wound healing. The proposed field of exclusivity may be limited to human and veterinary therapeutics for treatment of wounds. Properly filed competing applications for a license filed in response to this notice will be treated as objections to the contemplated license. Comments and objections submitted in response to this notice will not be made available for public inspection, and, to the extent permitted by law, will not be released under the Freedom of Information Act, 5 U.S.C. 552.

TSA, with OMB’s approval, has conducted surveys of passengers and now seeks approval to continue this effort. TSA plans to conduct passenger surveys at airports nationwide. The surveys will be administered using an intercept methodology. The intercept methodology uses TSA personnel who are not in uniform to hand deliver paper survey forms to passengers immediately following the passenger’s experience with TSA’s checkpoint security functions. Passengers are invited, though not required, to complete and return the survey using either an online portal or by responding in writing to the survey questions on the customer satisfaction card and depositing the card in a drop-box at the airport or using U.S. mail; TSA personnel decide the method by which passengers will be asked to complete and return the survey. TSA uses the intercept methodology to randomly select passengers to complete the survey in an effort to gain survey data representative of all passenger demographics, including passengers who— • Travel on weekdays or weekends; • Travel in the morning, mid-day, or evening; VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:02 Jul 31, 2013 Jkt 229001 • Pass through each of the different security screening locations in the airport; • Are subject to more intensive screening of their baggage or person; and • Experience different volume conditions and wait times as they proceed through the security checkpoints. The survey includes 10 to 15 questions. Each question promotes a quality response so that TSA can identify areas in need of improvement. All questions concern aspects of the passenger’s security screening experience. TSA intends to collect this information in order to continue to assess customer satisfaction in an effort to more efficiently manage its security screening performance at airports. In its future surveys, TSA wishes to obtain more detailed, airport-specific data that TSA can use to enhance customer experiences and its performance at specific airports. In order to gain more detailed information regarding customer experiences, TSA is submitting 84 questions to OMB for approval. Eightyone questions have been previously approved by OMB and three questions are being submitted to OMB for the first time. The new questions will allow TSA to better measure customer satisfaction with Risk-Based Security, an effort to focus TSA resources and improve the passenger experience at security checkpoints by applying new intelligence-driven, risk-based screening procedures and enhancing the use of technology. Since there are some passengers who present a low level of risk, Risk-Based Security allows TSA to focus resources on higher-risk or unknown travelers, thereby increasing the level of security. Each survey question seeks to gain information regarding one of the following categories: • Confidence in Personnel • Confidence in Screening Equipment • Confidence in Security Procedures • Convenience of Divesting • Experience at Checkpoint • Satisfaction with Wait Time • Separation from Belongings • Separation from Others in Party • Stress Level TSA personnel use random procedures to select passengers to voluntarily participate in the survey until TSA obtains the desired sample size.

Information Collection Requirement

    Title: Aviation Security Customer Satisfaction Performance 
Measurement Passenger Survey.
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    OMB Control Number: 1652-0013.
    Forms(s): Survey.
    Affected Public: Travelling public.
    Abstract: OMB Control Number 1652-0013; Aviation Security Customer 
Satisfaction Performance Measurement Passenger Survey. TSA, with OMB's 
approval, has conducted surveys of passengers and now seeks approval to 
continue this effort. TSA plans to conduct passenger surveys at 
airports nationwide. The surveys will be administered using an 
intercept methodology. The intercept methodology uses TSA personnel who 
are not in uniform to hand deliver paper survey forms to passengers 
immediately following the passenger's experience with TSA's checkpoint 
security functions. Passengers are invited, though not required, to 
complete and return the survey using either an online portal or by 
responding in writing to the survey questions on the customer 
satisfaction card and depositing the card in a drop-box at the airport 
or using U.S. mail; TSA personnel decide the method by which passengers 
will be asked to complete and return the survey. TSA uses the intercept 
methodology to randomly select passengers to complete the survey in an 
effort to gain survey data representative of all passenger 
demographics, including passengers who--
     Travel on weekdays or weekends;
     Travel in the morning, mid-day, or evening;
     Pass through each of the different security screening 
locations in the airport;
     Are subject to more intensive screening of their baggage 
or person; and
     Experience different volume conditions and wait times as 
they proceed through the security checkpoints.
    The survey includes 10 to 15 questions. Each question promotes a 
quality response so that TSA can identify areas in need of improvement. 
All questions concern aspects of the passenger's security screening 
experience.
    TSA intends to collect this information in order to continue to 
assess customer satisfaction in an effort to more efficiently manage 
its security screening performance at airports. In its future surveys, 
TSA wishes to obtain more detailed, airport-specific data that TSA can 
use to enhance customer experiences and its performance at specific 
airports. In order to gain more detailed information regarding customer 
experiences, TSA is submitting 84 questions to OMB for approval. 
Eighty-one questions have been previously approved by OMB and three 
questions are being submitted to OMB for the first time. The new 
questions will allow TSA to better measure customer satisfaction with 
Risk-Based Security, an effort to focus TSA resources and improve the 
passenger experience at security checkpoints by applying new 
intelligence-driven, risk-based screening procedures and enhancing the 
use of technology. Since there are some passengers who present a low 
level of risk, Risk-Based Security allows TSA to focus resources on 
higher-risk or unknown travelers, thereby increasing the level of 
security. Each survey question seeks to gain information regarding one 
of the following categories:

 Confidence in Personnel
 Confidence in Screening Equipment
 Confidence in Security Procedures
 Convenience of Divesting
 Experience at Checkpoint
 Satisfaction with Wait Time
 Separation from Belongings
 Separation from Others in Party
 Stress Level

TSA personnel use random procedures to select passengers to voluntarily 
participate in the survey until TSA obtains the desired sample size. 
The samples may be selected with one randomly selected time and 
location or span multiple times and locations. Designated TSA personnel 
at each airport may choose one or more of the following sample methods 
when planning the survey, which include a business card that directs 
customers to an online portal, a customer satisfaction card with survey 
questions on the card, or a customer satisfaction card with survey 
questions on the card and a link to the online portal. All responses 
are voluntary and there is no burden on passengers who choose not to 
respond.

    Number of Respondents: 25,000.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 2083.3 hours annually.
