Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The Department is conducting this study under contract with MDRC and its subcontractors (Branch Associates, The Bronner Group, Decision Information Resources, Quadel Consulting Corporation, and the Urban Institute). The project is a random assignment trial of an alternative rent system. Families will be randomly assigned to either E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1 14265 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 49 / Thursday, March 13, 2014 / Notices participate in the new/alternative rent system or to continue in the current system. For voucher holders, outcomes of the alternative system are hypothesized to be increases in earnings, employment and job retention, among others. Random assignment will limit the extent to which selection bias drives observed results. The demonstration will document the progress of a group of housing voucher holders, who will be drawn from current residents. The intent is to gain an understanding of the impact of the alternative rent system on the families as well as the administrative burden on Public Housing Agencies (PHAs). PHAs currently participating in the Moving to Work (MtW) Demonstration are being recruited to participate in the demonstration. Data collection will include the families that are part of the treatment and control groups, as well as PHA staff.

For study participants, we have estimated the hourly wage at the federal minimum wage: $7.25 per hour. Based on other research, we expect about 50 percent of the participants to be employed at the time of study entry. Also, based on a recent report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, some 55 percent of non-elderly, non-disabled households receiving voucher assistance reported earned income in 2010. The typical (median) annual earnings for these families were $15,600, only slightly more than the pay from full-time, year-round minimum-wage work. (http:// www.cbpp.org/cms/?fa=view&id=3634). In the NYC Work Rewards study, based on 36-month survey data, the median wage for working participants was $10 an hour. Based on this, we assumed 6,000 (or 50% of the 12,000 projected sample) would be working at the federal minimum wage. 2 Same note as 1. 3 Same note as 1. 4 For program staff, the estimate uses the median hourly wages of selected occupations (classified by Standard Occupational Classification (SOC) codes) was compared using Occupational Employment Statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: 30 CFR 250, Application for Permit to Drill (APD, Revised APD), Supplemental APD Information Sheet, and all supporting documentation. Form(s): BSEE–0123 and –0123S. OMB Control Number: 1014–NEW. Abstract: The Outer Continental Shelf (OCS) Lands Act (OCSLA), as amended (43 U.S.C. 1331 et seq. and 43 U.S.C. 1801 et seq.), authorizes the Secretary of the Interior to prescribe rules and regulations to administer leasing of mineral resources on the OCS. Such rules and regulations will apply to all operations conducted under a lease, right-of-way, or a right-of-use and easement. Operations on the OCS must preserve, protect, and develop oil and natural gas resources in a manner that is consistent with the need to make such resources available to meet the Nation’s energy needs as rapidly as possible; to balance orderly energy resource development with protection of human, marine, and coastal environments; to ensure the public a fair and equitable return on the resources of the OCS; and to preserve and maintain free enterprise competition. Section 1332(6) states that ‘‘operations in the Outer Continental Shelf should be conducted in a safe manner by well trained personnel using technology, precautions, and other techniques sufficient to prevent or minimize the likelihood of blowouts, loss of well control, fires, spillages, physical obstructions to other users of the waters or subsoil and seabed, or other occurrences which may cause damage to the environment or to property or endanger life or health.’’ In addition to the general authority of OCSLA, section 301(a) of the Federal Oil and Gas Royalty Management Act (FOGRMA), 30 U.S.C. 1751(a), grants authority to the Secretary to prescribe such rules and regulations as are reasonably necessary to carry out FOGRMA’s provisions. While the majority of FOGRMA is directed to PO 00000 Frm 00055 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 royalty collection and enforcement, some provisions apply to offshore operations. For example, For example, section 108 of FOGRMA, 30 U.S.C. 1718, grants the Secretary broad authority to inspect lease sites for the purpose of determining whether there is compliance with the mineral leasing laws. Section 109(c)(2) and (d)(1), 30 U.S.C. 1719(c)(2) and (d)(1), impose substantial civil penalties for failure to permit lawful inspections and for knowing or willful preparation or submission of false, inaccurate, or misleading reports, records, or other information. The Secretary has delegated some of the authority under FOGRMA to BSEE. The Independent Offices Appropriations Act (31 U.S.C. 9701), the Omnibus Appropriations Bill (Pub. L. 104–133, 110 Stat. 1321, April 26, 1996), and OMB Circular A–25, authorize Federal agencies to recover the full cost of services that confer special benefits. Under the Department of the Interior’s implementing policy, the BSEE is required to charge fees for services that provide special benefits or privileges to an identifiable non-Federal recipient above and beyond those which accrue to the public at large. Applications for Permit to Drill (APDs) are subject to cost recovery and BSEE regulations specify a service fee for this request. This authority and responsibility are among those delegated to BSEE. The regulations at 30 CFR part 250 stipulate the various requirements that must be submitted with an APD, Revised APD, and the supplemental APD information sheet. The forms and the numerous submittals that are included and/or attached to the forms are the subject of this collection. Currently, this information is collected under 30 CFR part 250, Subpart D, 1014–0018 (216,211 hour burdens/$2,225,286 nonhour cost burdens; expiration 10/21/ 2014); but this request will separate out the hours and non-hour cost burdens associated with APDs into its own separate collection so that both industry and BSEE have a better understanding of the complexities associated with all the information that is submitted with these forms throughout the various subparts; and will reflect more accurate burden estimates. This request also covers any related Notices to Lessees and Operators (NTLs) that BSEE issues to clarify, supplement, or provide additional guidance on some aspects of our regulations. This ICR includes forms, APD, BSEE– 0123 and Supplemental APD Information Sheet, BSEE–0123s. In this submission, we have included a E:\FR\FM\13MRN1.SGM 13MRN1

A. Overview of Information Collection

    Title of Information Collection: Rent Reform Demonstration.
    Type of Request: New.
    Description of the need for the information and proposed use: The 
Department is conducting this study under contract with MDRC and its 
subcontractors (Branch Associates, The Bronner Group, Decision 
Information Resources, Quadel Consulting Corporation, and the Urban 
Institute). The project is a random assignment trial of an alternative 
rent system. Families will be randomly assigned to either

[[Page 14265]]

participate in the new/alternative rent system or to continue in the 
current system. For voucher holders, outcomes of the alternative system 
are hypothesized to be increases in earnings, employment and job 
retention, among others. Random assignment will limit the extent to 
which selection bias drives observed results. The demonstration will 
document the progress of a group of housing voucher holders, who will 
be drawn from current residents. The intent is to gain an understanding 
of the impact of the alternative rent system on the families as well as 
the administrative burden on Public Housing Agencies (PHAs). PHAs 
currently participating in the Moving to Work (MtW) Demonstration are 
being recruited to participate in the demonstration.
    Data collection will include the families that are part of the 
treatment and control groups, as well as PHA staff. Data for this 
evaluation will be gathered through a variety of methods including 
informational interviews, direct observation, surveys, and analysis of 
administrative records. The work covered under this information request 
is for interviews and the baseline survey. Work funded by subsequent 
task orders will be covered under a separate information collection 
request.
    Respondents: 12,030.
    This includes:
     Public Housing Authority Staff: Up to 30 (i.e., assuming 
up to 5 staff at up to 6 PHAs).
     Families with housing vouchers, remaining in the current 
rent system (control group): Up to 6,000.
     Families with housing vouchers, enrolled in the 
alternative rent system (treatment group): Up to 6,0.

\1\ Potential respondents will range widely in employment position and earnings. For study participants, we have estimated the hourly wage at the
  federal minimum wage: $7.25 per hour. Based on other research, we expect about 50 percent of the participants to be employed at the time of study
  entry. Also, based on a recent report by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, some 55 percent of non-elderly, non-disabled households receiving
  voucher assistance reported earned income in 2010\.\ The typical (median) annual earnings for these families were $15,600, only slightly more than the
  pay from full-time, year-round minimum-wage work. (http://www.cbpp.org/cms/?fa=view&id=3634). In the NYC Work Rewards study, based on 36-month survey
  data, the median wage for working participants was $10 an hour. Based on this, we assumed 6,000 (or 50% of the 12,000 projected sample) would be
  working at the federal minimum wage.

  codes) was compared using Occupational Employment Statistics from the U.S. Department of Labor's Bureau of Labor Statistics. Potentially relevant
  occupations and their median hourly wages include:
