OMB Control Number: 1652–0044. Forms(s): Traveler Inquiry Form. Affected Public: Traveling Public. Abstract: DHS TRIP is a single point of contact for individuals who have inquiries or seek resolution regarding difficulties they have experienced during their travel screening. These difficulties could include being: (1) Denied or delayed boarding; (2) denied or delayed entry into or departure from the United States at a port of entry; or (3) identified for additional (secondary) screening at our Nation’s transportation facilities, including airports, seaports, train stations and land borders. The VerDate Mar<15>2010 20:58 Feb 14, 2014 Jkt 232001 TSA manages the DHS TRIP office on behalf of DHS. To request redress, individuals are asked to provide identifying information as well as details of their travel experience. The DHS TRIP office serves as a centralized intake office for traveler requests for redress and uses the online Traveler Inquiry Form (TIF) to collect requests for redress. DHS TRIP then passes the information to the relevant DHS component to process the request, as appropriate (e.g., DHS TRIP passes the form to the appropriate DHS office to initiate the Watch List Clearance Procedure). Participating DHS components include the TSA, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Office of Biometric Information Management, Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, and the Privacy Office, along with the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs, and the U.S. Department of Justice (Terrorist Screening Center). This collection serves to distinguish misidentified individuals from an individual actually on any watch list used by DHS. Where appropriate, this program helps streamline and expedite future check-in or border crossing experiences. DHS estimates that completing the Traveler Inquiry Form, including gathering and submitting the information, will take approximately one hour. The annual respondent population was derived from data contained within the DHS case management database and reflects the projected number of respondents in the next fiscal year. Thus, the total estimated annual number of burden hours for passengers seeking redress, based on 15,000 annual respondents, is 15,000 hours (15,000 x 1). Number of Respondents: 15,000. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 15,000 hours annually. Estimated Cost Burden: TSA will spend $1 million per year over the next three years to maintain the Redress Management System (RMS), which will handle these requests. Dated: February 11, 2014.

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it

    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to

Information Collection Requirement

    Title: Department of Homeland Security Traveler Redress Inquiry 
Program (DHS TRIP)
    Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    OMB Control Number: 1652-0044.
    Forms(s): Traveler Inquiry Form.
    Affected Public: Traveling Public.
    Abstract: DHS TRIP is a single point of contact for individuals who 
have inquiries or seek resolution regarding difficulties they have 
experienced during their travel screening. These difficulties could 
include being: (1) Denied or delayed boarding; (2) denied or delayed 
entry into or departure from the United States at a port of entry; or 
(3) identified for additional (secondary) screening at our Nation's 
transportation facilities, including airports, seaports, train stations 
and land borders. The TSA manages the DHS TRIP office on behalf of DHS. 
To request redress, individuals are asked to provide identifying 
information as well as details of their travel experience.
    The DHS TRIP office serves as a centralized intake office for 
traveler requests for redress and uses the online Traveler Inquiry Form 
(TIF) to collect requests for redress. DHS TRIP then passes the 
information to the relevant DHS component to process the request, as 
appropriate (e.g., DHS TRIP passes the form to the appropriate DHS 
office to initiate the Watch List Clearance Procedure). Participating 
DHS components include the TSA, U.S. Customs and Border Protection, 
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services, Office of Biometric 
Information Management, Office of Civil Rights and Civil Liberties, and 
the Privacy Office, along with the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of 
Consular Affairs, and the U.S. Department of Justice (Terrorist 
Screening Center). This collection serves to distinguish misidentified 
individuals from an individual actually on any watch list used by DHS. 
Where appropriate, this program helps streamline and expedite future 
check-in or border crossing experiences.
    DHS estimates that completing the Traveler Inquiry Form, including 
gathering and submitting the information, will take approximately one 
hour. The annual respondent population was derived from data contained 
within the DHS case management database and reflects the projected 
number of respondents in the next fiscal year. Thus, the total 
estimated annual number of burden hours for passengers seeking redress, 
based on 15,000 annual respondents, is 15,000 hours (15,000 x 1).
    Number of Respondents: 15,000.
    Estimated Annual Burden Hours: An estimated 15,000 hours annually.
    Estimated Cost Burden: TSA will spend $1 million per year over the 
next three years to maintain the Redress Management System (RMS), which 
will handle these requests.
