Authority: 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1)(D). This ICR seeks to make minor modifications to the Telephone Point of Purchase Survey (TPOPS) and extend its PRA authorization. The BLS administers the survey quarterly via a computerassisted-telephone-interview. This survey is flexible and creates the possibility of introducing new products into the CPI in a timely manner. The data collected in this survey are necessary for the continuing construction of a current outlet universe from which locations are selected for the price collection needed for calculating the CPI. Furthermore, the TPOPS provides the weights used in selecting the items that are priced at these establishments. This sample design produces an overall CPI market basket that is more reflective of the prices faced and the establishments visited by urban consumers. This ICR has been classified as a revision to discontinue a now complete cell phone frame test component and because of minor changes to the collection instrument. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1220–0044. The current approval is scheduled to expire on January 31, 2014; however, it should be noted that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on August 19, 2013 (78 FR 50449). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Dated: December 19, 2013.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The ICR seeks to revise the forms associated 
with regulations administering the Longshore and Harbor Workers' 
Compensation Act (LHWCA), 33 U.S.C. 901 et seq. The regulations and 
forms cover the submission of information needed to process benefits 
claims under the LHWCA and it extensions.
    This ICR has been classified as a revision, because of 
modifications to Form LS-513 (Report of Payments) to collect additional 
data. An insurance carrier or self-insured employer uses Form LS-513 to 
file an annual report of total payments made under the LHWCA and its 
extensions. The modifications to the LS-513 will affect only those few 
carriers and self-insured employers making payments under the Defense 
Base Act (DBA), one of the LHWCA's extensions. These entities will now 
be required to report their DBA payments by contracting agency (i.e., 
the government agency with which the injured worker's employer 
contracted) on the form. The OWCP needs this information to cross-
reference the information submitted on Form LS-202 (Employer's First 
Report of Injury or Occupational Illness) and to monitor DBA claims 
processing and compliance. The ICR is also being revised to reflect 
that Forms LS-513 and LS-274 (Report of Injury Experience) will not be 
able to be filed via the Internet, as was previously anticipated.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1240-0014. The current approval is scheduled to 
expire on August 31, 2015; however, the DOL notes that existing 
information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a 
month-to-month extension while they undergo review. New requirements 
would only take effect upon OMB approval. For additional substantive 
information about this ICR, see the related notice published in the 
Federal Register on September 18, 2013.
    Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, 
Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in 
the ADDRESSES section within 30 days of publication of this notice in 
the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate 
consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1240-0014. 
The OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
     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;
     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;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and
     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, e.g., permitting 
electronic submission of responses.
