AGENCY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) is issuing this final notice to dispose of a collection of disaster recovery backup tapes from the George H.W. Bush and Clinton administrations under the provisions of 44 U.S.C. 2203(f)(3). The notice of proposed disposal of this collection of disaster recovery backup tapes was published in the Federal Register on June 28, 2013 (78 FR 125, p. 39016), and contains a detailed description of this issue. NARA received no comments on the proposed notice, and is therefore proceeding with this notice of final agency action.

NARA received no written comments. emcdonald on DSK4SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:44 Dec 19, 2013 Jkt 232001 NARA has determined that further retention of these disaster recovery backup tapes is not warranted. The Presidential and Federal electronic mail with attachments, pager, and calendar records residing on these backup tapes were previously restored and NARA will permanently retain those Presidential and Federal records on a different set of electronic media. Because the backup tapes proposed for disposal were made for disaster recovery purposes and the restoration project was completed in 1996, NARA is following the normal disposal processes established in General Records Schedules 20 and 24 for Federal record backup tapes. NARA will proceed to dispose of 22,907 All-In-One backup tapes created during the George H.W. Bush and Clinton Administrations by OA staff as specified in the February 18, 2014 of this notice, because NARA has determined that they lack sufficient administrative, historical, informational, or evidentiary value. This notice constitutes NARA’s final agency action pursuant to 44 U.S.C. 2203(f)(3). Dated: December 16, 2013. David S. Ferriero, Archivist of the United States.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under section 4041 of the Employee 
Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, as amended (ERISA), a single-
employer pension plan may terminate voluntarily only if it satisfies 
the requirements for either a standard or a distress termination. 
Pursuant to ERISA section 4041(b), for standard terminations, and 
section 4041(c), for distress terminations, and PBGC's termination 
regulation (29 CFR part 4041), a plan administrator wishing to 
terminate a plan is required to submit specified information to PBGC in 
support of the proposed termination and to provide specified 
information regarding the proposed termination to third parties 
(participants, beneficiaries, alternate payees, and employee 
organizations). In the case of a plan with participants or 
beneficiaries who cannot be located when their benefits are to be 
distributed, the plan administrator is subject to the requirements of 
ERISA section 4050 and PBGC's missing participants regulation (29 CFR 
part 4050). These regulations may be found on PBGC's Web site at http://www.pbgc.gov/res/laws-and-regulations/code-of-federal-regulations.html.

approved by OMB under control number 1212-0036 (expires December 31, 
2013). PBGC is requesting that OMB extend its approval for three years, 
with modifications. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person 
is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a currently valid OMB control number.
    The modifications include a new requirement that plan 
administrators of plans terminating in a standard termination attach 
copies of the Notice of Intent to Terminate and sample Notices of Plan 
Benefits to the Standard Termination Notice (Form 500) filed with PBGC. 
PBGC is reorganizing the distress termination forms and instructions, 
including removing information items that PBGC no longer needs or can 
gather in other ways, adding a few information items that PBGC 
typically has been requesting as additional information under 29 CFR 
4041.45(c), and moving some information items from one form to another. 
PBGC is also making clarifying, simplifying, editorial, and other 
changes to the current standard termination, distress termination, and 
missing participants forms and instructions.
    PBGC estimates that 1,430 plan administrators will be subject to 
the collection of information requirements in PBGC's regulations on 
termination and missing participants and implementing forms and 
instructions each year, and that the total annual burden of complying 
with these requirements is 1,667 hours and $2,761,200.
