Promoting Readiness of Minors in Supplemental Security Income (SSI) (PROMISE) Evaluation—Preliminary Activities—0960–NEW. Background The Promoting Readiness of Minors in SSI (PROMISE) program pursues positive outcomes for children with disabilities who receive SSI and their families by reducing dependency on SSI. The Department of Education is awarding grants to States to improve the provision and coordination of services and support for children with disabilities who receive SSI and their families to achieve improved outcomes. PROMISE Evaluation With support from the Department of Labor and the Department of Health and Human Services, SSA will evaluate the PROMISE program. SSA will contract with an evaluator to conduct the evaluation. The assessment will require a process evaluation of the PROMISE projects, an impact analysis of important outcomes, and a cost-benefit analysis. This will be a multi-site project conducted in four States. The evaluation contractor and the local PROMISE projects will collect data on project participants. Current Information Collection Request SSA will pursue OMB approval for subsequent project surveys and focus group interviews at a later date. In this information collection request, SSA is only seeking OMB clearance for one preproject activity: an initial intake interview including a request for consent from the participants, documented on a demonstration enrollment form. Local project staff will conduct these interviews at the local project sites, or in areas convenient for the families. The demonstration enrollment form will provide contact information for purposes of project administration, as well as work and education history, and health status, for baseline measurement purposes. The demonstration enrollment form will also allow SSA to obtain informed consent from the participants and their parents or guardians. The respondents are minors receiving SSI who will eventually participate in the PROMISE project, their parents or guardians, and, if applicable, additional household members.

This is a correction notice: When SSA published the 60-day Federal Register Notice for this information collection at 78 FR 22935, on April 17, 2013, we included two forms: a demonstration enrollment form, and a consent form. Since then we have combined the two forms into a single form, and updated our burden chart accordingly. In addition, we decided local project staff will conduct the intake interviews and VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:16 Aug 13, 2013 Jkt 229001 help the respondents fill out the form, rather than hiring a contractor to do this initial task for the PROMISE project. 2. Application for Child’s Insurance Benefits—20 CFR 404.350–404.368, 404.603, & 416.350—0960–0010. Title II of the Act provides for the payment of monthly benefits to children of an insured retired, disabled, or deceased worker. Section 202(d) of the Act discloses the conditions and requirements the applicant must meet PO 00000 Frm 00150 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 when filing an application.

Certificate of Coverage Request—20 CFR 404.1913—0960–0554. The United States has agreements with 24 foreign countries to eliminate double Social Security coverage and taxation where, except for the provisions of the agreement, a worker would be subject to coverage and taxes in both countries. These agreements contain rules for determining the country under whose laws the worker’s period of employment is covered, and to which country the worker will pay taxes. The agreements further dictate that, upon the request of the worker or employer, the country under whose system the period of work is covered will issue a certificate of coverage. The certificate serves as proof of exemption from coverage and taxation under the system of the other country. The information we collect assists us in determining a worker’s coverage and in issuing a U.S. certificate of coverage as appropriate.

AGENCY: Notice of new task assignment for the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ARAC). ACTION: The FAA assigned the Aviation Rulemaking Advisory Committee (ARAC) a new task to provide recommendations regarding the outdated Advisory Circular (AC) 120– 17A, Maintenance Control by Reliability Methods guidance material. The FAA needs to provide its employees and the aviation industry with current information for developing, implementing, maintaining and overseeing air carrier’s maintenance reliability programs. This notice informs the public of the new ARAC activity and solicits membership for the Maintenance Reliability Program Working Group. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Paul K. Pitts, Federal Aviation Administration, AFS–330 Air Carrier Maintenance Branch, 800 Independence Avenue SW., Washington, DC 20591; email: Paul.K.Pitts@faa.gov, telephone: (202) 385–6818, facsimile: (202) 385– 6474. SUMMARY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES ARAC Acceptance of Task As a result of the June 2013 ARAC meeting, the FAA has assigned and ARAC has accepted this task and will establish the Maintenance Reliability Program Working Group. The working group will serve as staff to ARAC and provide it advice and recommendations on the assigned task. ARAC will review and approve the recommendation report that will be sent to the FAA. 16:16 Aug 13, 2013 Jkt 229001 Average burden per response (minutes) 6,530,493 ........................ ........................ Background [FR Doc. 2013–19701 Filed 8–13–13; 8:45 am] VerDate Mar<15>2010 Frequency of response Number of respondents Modality of completion The FAA established ARAC to provide advice and recommendations to the FAA Administrator, through the Associate Administrator of Aviation Safety, on the FAA’s rulemaking activities. ARAC’s objective is to improve the development of the FAA’s regulations and guidance material by providing information, advice, and recommendations related to aviation issues. The National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) issued safety recommendation, A–09–110, which identified contradictory philosophy regarding on-condition maintenance in reliability program control mechanisms recognized by the FAA. Specifically, it requested the FAA to: Resolve the differences between Advisory Circular (AC) 120–17A and AC 120–16E (now revised to AC 120–16F) in regard to Federal Aviation Administration philosophy and use of on-condition maintenance programs. Currently, AC 120–17A refers to the Maintenance Steering Group 2 (MSG–2) logic for developing maintenance programs, which dates from the 1970’s. AC 120–16F, dated November 15, 2012, provides guidance for the implementation of an air carriers maintenance program. Air carriers consider the maintenance requirements for identifying tasks and intervals when establishing maintenance programs. These considerations address corrective and preventive maintenance on airframes, engines, rotors, propellers, appliances, and emergency equipment. Recognizing the experience gained from MSG–2, we now use MSG 3 logic, which replaced MSC–2 logic in 1980, for developing a more effective set of procedures through analysis of aircraft functions, rather than components. In response to the NTSB safety recommendation, the FAA is requesting ARAC assistance to evaluate the guidance contained in the AC’s that are associated with methods for establishing, monitoring, maintaining and overseeing air carrier reliability programs. The Maintenance Reliability Program Working Group will provide advice and recommendations on the concepts and standards for maintenance reliability methods for ARAC review and approval. PO 00000 Frm 00152 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 49595 Estimated total annual burden (hours) 117,150 The Task The Maintenance Reliability Program Working Group is to complete the following: 1. Review the NTSB Recommendation A–09–110. http://www.ntsb.gov/doclib/ recletters/2009/A09_108_111.pdf 2. Review AC 120–17A, ‘‘Maintenance Control by Reliability Methods’’ http:// www.faa.gov/regulations_policies/ advisory_circulars/index.cfm/go/ document.information/documentID/ 22744, and AC 120–16F ‘‘Air Carrier Maintenance Programs’’. http:// www.faa.gov/documentLibrary/media/ Advisory_Circular/AC%20120-16F.pdf 3. Gather and review all internal and external guidance documents that reference or provide information on establishing, monitoring, maintaining and overseeing air carrier reliability programs. 4. Determine whether updated guidance material is appropriate and if so, develop draft internal and external guidance based on modern concepts, which ensure a standardized methodology for establishing, monitoring, maintaining and overseeing air carrier’s aircraft maintenance reliability programs. 5. Develop and submit a report that contains recommendations for ensuring consistent establishment, monitoring, maintaining and overseeing an air carrier reliability program that explains the decisions made in developing the recommendation and any corresponding documents. 6. The working group may be reinstated to assist the ARAC by responding to FAA’s questions or concerns after the recommendation has been submitted. The report should document both majority and minority positions on the findings and the rationale for each position. Any disagreements should be documented, including the rationale for each position and the reasons for the disagreement. Schedule The recommendation report must be submitted to the FAA for review and acceptance no later than September 30, 2014.

Background

    The Promoting Readiness of Minors in SSI (PROMISE) program pursues 
positive outcomes for children with disabilities who receive SSI and 
their families by reducing dependency on SSI. The Department of 
Education is awarding grants to States to improve the provision and 
coordination of services and support for children with disabilities who 
receive SSI and their families to achieve improved outcomes.

PROMISE Evaluation

    With support from the Department of Labor and the Department of 
Health and Human Services, SSA will evaluate the PROMISE program. SSA 
will contract with an evaluator to conduct the evaluation. The 
assessment will require a process evaluation of the PROMISE projects, 
an impact analysis of important outcomes, and a cost-benefit analysis. 
This will be a multi-site project conducted in four States. The 
evaluation contractor and the local PROMISE projects will collect data 
on project participants.

Current Information Collection Request

    SSA will pursue OMB approval for subsequent project surveys and 
focus group interviews at a later date. In this information collection 
request, SSA is only seeking OMB clearance for one pre-project 
activity: an initial intake interview including a request for consent 
from the participants, documented on a demonstration enrollment form. 
Local project staff will conduct these interviews at the local project 
sites, or in areas convenient for the families. The demonstration 
enrollment form will provide contact information for purposes of 
project administration, as well as work and education history, and 
health status, for baseline measurement purposes. The demonstration 
enrollment form will also allow SSA to obtain informed consent from the 
participants and their parents or guardians. The respondents are minors 
receiving SSI who will eventually participate in the PROMISE project, 
their parents or guardians, and, if applicable, additional household 
members.
    Type of Request: This is a new information collection.

* Each respondent will complete this forms only once for the duration of the PROMISE project.

    This is a correction notice: When SSA published the 60-day Federal 
Register Notice for this information collection at 78 FR 22935, on 
April 17, 2013, we included two forms: a demonstration enrollment form, 
and a consent form. Since then we have combined the two forms into a 
single form, and updated our burden chart accordingly. In addition, we 
decided local project staff will conduct the intake interviews and help 
the respondents fill out the form, rather than hiring a contractor to 
do this initial task for the PROMISE project.
    2. Application for Child's Insurance Benefits--20 CFR 404.350-
404.368, 404.603, & 416.350--0960-0010. Title II of the Act provides 
for the payment of monthly benefits to children of an insured retired, 
disabled, or deceased worker. Section 202(d) of the Act discloses the 
conditions and requirements the applicant must meet when filing an 
application. SSA uses the information on Form SSA-4-BK to determine 
entitlement for children of living and deceased workers to monthly 
Social Security payments. Respondents are guardians completing the form 
on behalf of the children of living or deceased workers, or the 
children of living or deceased workers.
    Type of Request: Revision of an OMB-approved information 
collection.

    3. Certificate of Coverage Request--20 CFR 404.1913--0960-0554. The 
United States has agreements with 24 foreign countries to eliminate 
double Social Security coverage and taxation where, except for the 
provisions of the agreement, a worker would be subject to coverage and 
taxes in both countries. These agreements contain rules for determining 
the country under whose laws the worker's period of employment is 
covered, and to which country the worker will pay taxes. The agreements 
further dictate that, upon the request of the worker or employer, the 
country under whose system the period of work is covered will issue a 
certificate of coverage. The certificate serves as proof of exemption 
from coverage and taxation under the system of the other country. The 
information we collect assists us in determining a worker's coverage 
and in issuing a U.S. certificate of coverage as appropriate. Per our 
agreements, we ask a set number of questions to the workers and 
employers prior to issuing a certificate of coverage; however, our 
agreements with Denmark, Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden require us to 
ask more questions in those countries. Respondents are workers and 
employers wishing to establish exemption from foreign Social Security 
taxes.

collection.

    4. Application Status--20 CFR 401.45--0960-0763. Application Status 
provides users with the capability to check the status of their pending 
Social Security claims either via the Internet or the National 800 
Number Automated Telephone Service. Users need their Social Security 
number and a confirmation number to access this information. The 
Application Status shows users when SSA received the application, if we 
requested additional documents (e.g., military discharge papers, W-2s, 
birth records, etc.), and provides the address for the office 
processing the application. Once SSA makes a decision on a claim, we 
post a copy of the decision notice online for the user to view. There 
are some exceptions to posting a copy online, such as disability denial 
notices (even if filed electronically) or claims users did not file via 
the Internet, as we may not have those notices available for online 
review. Respondents are current Social Security claimants who wish to 
check the status of their claims either through the Internet or the 
National 800 Number.

collection.
