The NCIC is a computerized information system available to law enforcement and criminal justice agencies nationwide. PO 00000 Frm 00056 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 8733 NCIC became operational on January 27, 1967, with the goal of assisting law enforcement in the apprehension of fugitives and locating stolen property. This goal has expanded to include locating missing persons and further protecting law enforcement personnel and the public. The NCIC is the sole system that houses actionable criminal justice and law enforcement data from more than 90,000 users nationwide. The average transactions per day in FY 2013 were 9.6 million. On September 13, 2013, NCIC had a peak daily transaction volume of 12.21 million transactions. The system was available 99.75 percent of the time in FY 2013. The last major upgrade to NCIC occurred in July 1999, with the transition to NCIC 2000. The CJIS Division has implemented many enhancements to the system since 1999, in an effort to continue to meet the needs of the stakeholders. The NCIC stakeholders include law enforcement and criminal justice users at all levels (federal, state, local, territorial, and tribal). As the lifecycle of NCIC 2000 nears its end, the CJIS Division is preparing for the next major upgrade to NCIC known as NCIC 3 rd Generation (N3G). The mission of N3G is to partner with stakeholders to identify new functionality and information sharing services that will improve, modernize and expand the existing NCIC system so that it will continue to provide real time, accurate, and complete criminal justice information to support the NCIC user community. With OMB approval, the CJIS Division will be conducting a requirements canvass in FY14 and FY15 for N3G. The purpose of the requirements study is to gather and evaluate the needs of the law enforcement and criminal justice communities. Subsequently, the needs of the users will be documented in concepts and scenarios that will ultimately become the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) for the development of the N3G. It is vital that the new capabilities and functionality are detailed in a robust CONOPS to ensure that the system is developed to meet the current and future needs of the users. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: It is anticipated that the N3G Canvass will be conducted at a focal point in all 50 states. The canvass will include interviewing the respective state CSO along with any technical and policy staff, i.e., Computer Engineer(s), they deem appropriate. The on-site canvass will be conducted at the CSA facility and the additional individuals E:\FR\FM\13FEN1.SGM 13FEN1 8734 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 30 / Thursday, February 13, 2014 / Notices emcdonald on DSK67QTVN1PROD with NOTICES will be required to travel to that respective facility. The CSO and their staff will be at the location for a total of four hours for the state based interview. The state employees will remain at the location during the local level interview process. This interview will include twelve local law enforcement personnel during an additional four hours. It is expected that four of the local personnel will be within the respective city incurring no travel burden. It is anticipated that eight of the local law enforcement personnel from two different districts will require up to four hours travel time (two hours each way) to the interview location, thus four hours burden for eight people. It is anticipated that ten additional interviews will be conducted that do not fall within the CSO location. These interviewees will consist of the manager, two computer engineers and ten additional personnel. The estimate of the respondent’s burden for this data collection is as follows: Number of N3G respondents: 880. Frequency of responses: One session (4 hours each) for Local Law Enforcement Personnel; Two sessions (4 hours each) for CSO and two Computer Engineers except when interviewing at a CSA. Total annual responses: Once for Local Law Enforcement personnel and twice for CSOs and Computer Engineers. Hours per response: 4 hours.
