Chapter 35). Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Title: Gulf of Alaska Trawl Groundfish Fishery Rationalization Social Study. OMB Control Number: None. Form Number(s): NA. Type of Request: Regular submission (request for a new information collection). Number of Respondents: 1,574. VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:29 Nov 19, 2013 Jkt 232001 Average Hours per Response: Survey, 1 hour; unstructured interview or meeting, 30 minutes. Burden Hours: 1,168. Needs and Uses: This request is for a new information collection. The North Pacific Fishery Management Council (NPFMC) is currently debating designs of a new rationalization program for the Gulf of Alaska trawl groundfish fishery and is expected to take final action on a new program in late 2014 or early 2015. These types of management programs are known to have extensive beneficial outcomes for fish stocks. Literature shows that there are mixed outcomes for the people participating in the fishery. Fishery participants may suffer negative social impacts. Sufficient non-economic social science data will be collected to describe the fishery prior to the management change, to collect baseline data. This information will be used to inform the program design and compared to a data collection post rationalization in order to detect any changes in the system as a result of the management change. With the pre- and post-rationalization data, social impacts may be measured. The collection of this data will provide fisheries managers with social science data which is typically unavailable or available in limited quality. This research aims to collect extensive data about the people in the fishery for the maximum benefit to all parties, including fisheries. Affected Public: Individuals or households; business or other for-profit organizations. Frequency: One time. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. OMB Desk Officer: OIRA_ Submission@omb.eop.gov.

Abstract The Census Bureau is requesting an extension of the generic clearance to conduct customer satisfaction research which may be in the form of mailed or electronic questionnaires and/or focus groups, telephone interviews, or webbased interviews. The Census Bureau has ranked a customer-focused environment as one of its most important strategic planning objectives. The Census Bureau routinely needs to collect and analyze customer feedback about its products and services to better align them to its customers’ needs and preferences. Several programs, products, and distribution channels have been designed and/or redesigned based on feedback from its various customer satisfaction research efforts. Each research design is reviewed for content, utility, and user-friendliness by a variety of appropriate staff (including E:\FR\FM\20NON1.SGM 20NON1 69644 Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 224 / Wednesday, November 20, 2013 / Notices research design and subject-matter specialists). The concept and design are tested by internal staff and a select sample of respondents to confirm its appropriateness, user-friendliness, and to estimate burden (including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information. Collection techniques are discussed and included in the research, concept, and design discussion to define the most time-, cost-efficient and accurate collection media. The clearance operates in the following manner: a block of burden hours is reserved at the beginning of the clearance period. The particular activities that will be conducted under the clearance are not specified in advance because they would not be known at the beginning of the clearance period. The Census Bureau provides detailed information to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) about the specific activities a minimum of two weeks prior to the planned start date of the collection. OMB provides any comments it may have prior to the start date of the planned activity. At the end of each year, a report is submitted to OMB that summarizes the number of hours used as well as the nature and results of the activities completed under the clearance. II.

As a result, the Department conducted an expedited (120-day) sunset review of the order, pursuant to section 751(c)(3)(B) of the Act and 19 CFR 351.218(e)(1)(ii)(C)(2). As explained in the memorandum from the Assistant Secretary for Enforcement and Compliance, the Department has exercised its discretion to toll deadlines for the duration of the closure of the Federal Government from October 1, through October 16, 2013.3 Therefore, all deadlines in this segment of the proceeding have been extended by 16 days. If the new deadline falls on a nonbusiness day, in accordance with the Department’s practice, the deadline will become the next business day.4 The revised deadline for the final results of this sunset review is now November 14, 2013. Scope of the Order The merchandise covered by the order includes certain steel nails having a shaft length up to 12 inches. Certain steel nails subject to the order are currently classified under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (‘‘HTSUS’’) subheadings 7317.00.55, 7317.00.65 and 7317.00.75. While the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, the written description of the scope of the order is dispositive.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The Census Bureau is requesting an extension of the generic 
clearance to conduct customer satisfaction research which may be in the 
form of mailed or electronic questionnaires and/or focus groups, 
telephone interviews, or web-based interviews.
    The Census Bureau has ranked a customer-focused environment as one 
of its most important strategic planning objectives. The Census Bureau 
routinely needs to collect and analyze customer feedback about its 
products and services to better align them to its customers' needs and 
preferences. Several programs, products, and distribution channels have 
been designed and/or redesigned based on feedback from its various 
customer satisfaction research efforts.
    Each research design is reviewed for content, utility, and user-
friendliness by a variety of appropriate staff (including

[[Page 69644]]

research design and subject-matter specialists). The concept and design 
are tested by internal staff and a select sample of respondents to 
confirm its appropriateness, user-friendliness, and to estimate burden 
(including hours and cost) of the proposed collection of information. 
Collection techniques are discussed and included in the research, 
concept, and design discussion to define the most time-, cost-efficient 
and accurate collection media.
    The clearance operates in the following manner: a block of burden 
hours is reserved at the beginning of the clearance period. The 
particular activities that will be conducted under the clearance are 
not specified in advance because they would not be known at the 
beginning of the clearance period. The Census Bureau provides detailed 
information to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) about the 
specific activities a minimum of two weeks prior to the planned start 
date of the collection. OMB provides any comments it may have prior to 
the start date of the planned activity. At the end of each year, a 
report is submitted to OMB that summarizes the number of hours used as 
well as the nature and results of the activities completed under the 
clearance.
