Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 46 / Monday, March 10, 2014 / Notices before providing survey data to the Board. Consumer survey data, whether collected by an outside vendor or by the Board, will be collected for research purposes only and any identifying information on respondents will be removed before any data is publicly released. Abstract: The Federal Reserve uses the FR 3073 surveys to gather quantitative and qualitative information directly from individual consumers or households (consumer surveys) on consumer finance topics. This collection is used to gather quantitative and qualitative information on current and emerging community economic issues from stakeholders (stakeholder surveys). The Federal Reserve uses this collection to inform consumer-focused supervision, research, and policy analysis; implement statutory requirements; and facilitate community development. The surveys in this collection inform the Federal Reserve’s work by identifying emerging risks and providing additional data on the issues that affect the well-being of consumers and communities and the function of the market for financial services. The frequency and content of the questions may change depending on economic conditions, regulatory, or legislative developments, as well as changes in technology, business practices, and other factors affecting consumers, stakeholders, and communities. Current Actions: On December 24, 2013, the Federal Reserve published a notice in the Federal Register (78 FR 77680) requesting public comment for 60 days on the implementation of the FR 3073. The comment period for this notice expired on February 24, 2014. The Federal Reserve did not receive any comments. The surveys will be implemented as proposed.

Proposed Project Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Secure Public Health Emergency Response Communications Network (Epi-X) (OMB Control No. 0920–0636, exp. 5/31/2014)— Revision—Office of Public Health Preparedness and Response (OPHPR), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description The effectiveness and efficiency of CDC’s response to any public health incident depends on information at the agency’s disposal to characterize and monitor the incident, make timely decisions, and take appropriate actions to prevent or reduce the impact of the incident. Available information in anticipation of, during and following public health incident responses is often incomplete, is not easily validated by state and local health authorities, and is sometimes conflicting. This lack of reliable information often creates a high level of uncertainty with potential negative impacts on public health response operations. Secure communications with CDC’s state, local, territorial, and tribal public health partners is essential to resolve conflicting information, validate incident status, and establish and maintain situational awareness. Reliable, secure communications are essential for the agency to gain and maintain accurate situational awareness, make informed decisions, and to respond in the most appropriate manner possible in order to minimize the impact of an incident on the public health of the United States. This generic Information Collection Request (ICR) is being revised to: (1) Remove verbiage limiting data collection to activation of the Incident Management Structure, (2) broaden categories under which data may be collected to increase its utilization, and (3) provide clarity regarding the data elements. (Epi-X) is CDC’s Web-based communication system for securely communicating in immediate anticipation of, during and following public health emergencies that have multi-jurisdictional impacts and implications. The incidents of September 11, 2001 illustrated the need for an encrypted and secure communications system that would permit CDC to communicate urgently with partners at the state and local levels, and to notify them ‘‘24 hours a day, 7 days a week’’, when necessary. Similarly, Epi-X was specifically designed to provide public health decision-makers at the state and local levels a secure, reliable tool for communicating sensitive, unusual, or urgent public health incidents to neighboring jurisdictions as well as to CDC. CDC has recognized a need to expand the use of Epi-X to collect specific response related information in anticipation of, during and following public health emergencies. Proposed data collection instruments under this generic ICR will be designed to ensure ready access to public health and disease epidemiology information. Authorized officials from state and local health departments affected by the public health incident will be informed of this data collection first through an Epi-X Facilitator, who will work closely with Epi-X program staff and the Epi-X Information Collection Request Liaison to ensure that Epi-X incident specific information collections are understood. The survey instruments will contain specific questions relevant to the current and ongoing public health incident and response activities. Respondents will receive the survey instrument(s) as an official CDC email, which is clearly labeled, ‘‘Epi-X Emergency Public Health Incident Information Request.’’ The email message will be accompanied by a link to an Epi-X Forum discussion Web page. Respondents can provide their answers to the survey questions by posting information within the discussion. The estimated annual burden to respondents is 24,400 hours. The total estimated burden for the generic information collection is 73,200 hours for three years. There are no costs to respondents except their time.
