(iii) An estimate of the number (by species) of marine mammals that may have been taken by Level B harassment during the blasting activities with a discussion of the nature of the probably consequences of that exposure on the individuals that have been exposed. Describe any behavioral responses or modifications of behaviors that may be attributed to the blasting activities. (iv) A description of the implementation and effectiveness of the monitoring and mitigation measures of the Incidental Harassment Authorization as well as any additional conservation recommendations. (b) Submit a final report to the Chief, Permits and Conservation Division, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, within 30 days after receiving comments from NMFS on the draft report. If NMFS decides that the draft report needs no comments, the draft report shall be considered to be the final report. (c) In the unanticipated event that the specified activity clearly causes the take of a marine mammal in a manner prohibited by this IHA, such as an injury, serious injury or mortality, ACOE will immediately cease the specified activities and immediately report the incident to the Chief of the Permits and Conservation, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS at 301–427– 8401 and/or by email to Jolie.Harrison@ noaa.gov and Howard.Goldstein@ noaa.gov, and the NMFS Southeast Region Marine Mammal Stranding Network at 877–433–8299 (Blair.Mase@ noaa.gov and Erin.Fougeres@noaa.gov) (Florida Marine Mammal Stranding Hotline at 888–404–3922). The report must include the following information: (i) Time, date, and location (latitude/ longitude) of the incident; description of the incident; status of all noisegenerating source use in the 24 hours preceding the incident; water depth; environmental conditions (e.g., wind speed and direction, Beaufort sea state, cloud cover, and visibility); description of all marine mammal observations in the 24 hours preceding the incident; species identification or description of the animal(s) involved; fate of the animal(s); and photographs or video footage of the animal(s) (if equipment is available). Activities shall not resume until NMFS is able to review the circumstances of the prohibited take. NMFS shall work with ACOE to determine what is necessary to minimize the likelihood of further prohibited take and ensure MMPA compliance. ACOE may not resume VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:14 Feb 03, 2014 Jkt 232001 their activities until notified by NMFS via letter or email, or telephone. In the event that ACOE discovers an injured or dead marine mammal, and the lead PSO determines that the cause of the injury or death is unknown and the death is relatively recent (i.e., in less than a moderate state of decomposition as described in the next paragraph), ACOE will immediately report the incident to the Chief of the Permits and Conservation Division, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, at 301– 427–8401, and/or by email to Jolie.Harrison@noaa.gov and Howard.Goldstein@noaa.gov, and the NMFS Southeast Region Marine Mammal Stranding Network (877–433– 8299) and/or by email to the Southeast Regional Stranding Coordinator (Blair.Mase@noaa.gov) and Southeast Regional Stranding Program Administrator (Erin.Fougeres@ noaa.gov). The report must include the same information identified in the paragraph above. Activities may continue while NMFS reviews the circumstances of the incident. NMFS will work with ACOE to determine whether modifications in the activities are appropriate. In the event that ACOE discovers an injured or dead marine mammal, and the lead PSO determines that the injury or death is not associated with or related to the activities authorized in the IHA (e.g., previously wounded animal, carcass with moderate to advanced decomposition, or scavenger damage), ACOE will report the incident to the Chief of the Permits and Conservation Division, Office of Protected Resources, NMFS, at 301–427–8401, and/or by email to Jolie.Harrison@noaa.gov and Howard.Goldstein@noaa.gov, and the NMFS Southeast Region Marine Mammal Stranding Network (877–433– 8299), and/or by email to the Southeast Regional Stranding Coordinator (Blair.Mase@noaa.gov) and Southeast Regional Stranding Program Administrator (Erin.Fougeres@ noaa.gov), within 24 hours of discovery. ACOE will provide photographs or video footage (if available) or other documentation of the stranded animal sighting to NMFS and the Marine Mammal Stranding Network. 8. To the greatest extent feasible, ACOE is encouraged to coordinate its monitoring studies on the distribution and abundance of marine mammals in the project area with the NMFS’s Southeast Fisheries Science Center, USFWS, and any other state or Federal agency conducting research on marine mammals. Also, report to NMFS and USFWS any chance observations of marked or tag-bearing marine mammals PO 00000 Frm 00037 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 6567 or carcasses, as well as any rare or unusual species of marine mammals. 9. ACOE is required to comply with the Terms and Conditions of the Incidental Take Statement corresponding to NMFS’s project specific Biological Opinions (2003 and 2011). 10. A copy of this Authorization must be in the possession of all contractors and PSOs operating under the authority of this Incidental Harassment Authorization. Information Solicited NMFS requests interested persons to submit comments and information concerning this proposed project and NMFS’s preliminary determinations of issuing an IHA (see ADDRESSES).

ACTION: 30-day notice of submission of information collection approval from the Office of Management and Budget and request for comments. AGENCY: As part of an effort to streamline the process to seek feedback from the public on service delivery, DoDIG has submitted a Generic Information Collection Request (Generic ICR): ‘‘Generic Clearance for the Collection of Qualitative Feedback on Agency Service Delivery’’ to OMB for approval under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et. seq.). DATES: Comments must be submitted by March 6, 2014. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Fred Licari, 571–372–0493. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title and OMB Number: Generic Clearance for the DoD IG Digital Communications Outreach—Generic Survey Collection; OMB Control Number 0704–TBD. Needs and Uses: The information collection requirement is necessary to obtain customer satisfaction metrics from users of the organization’s Web site, www.dodig.mil and those engaged by public affairs and social media initiatives. The information collection activity will garner qualitative customer and stakeholder feedback in an efficient, timely manner, in accordance with the Administration’s commitment to improving service delivery. By qualitative feedback we mean information that provides useful insights on perceptions and opinions, but are not statistical surveys that yield quantitative results that can be generalized to the population of study. This feedback will provide insights into customer or stakeholder perceptions, experiences and expectations, provide an early warning of issues with service, or focus attention on areas where communication, training or changes in operations might improve delivery of products or services. Specifically, this collection is necessary for DoD IG’s compliance with OMB Digital Strategy Milestone 8.2, which requires agencies to implement customer satisfaction measurement tools on all government Web sites.
