Download as PDF 19087 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 66 / Monday, April 7, 2014 / Notices requests for approval are evaluated. The applications are submitted at will and the most reasonable prediction of respondents is the number from the most recent year, 63 in 2013. The decrease is likely due to random fluctuations and changes in business conditions. No survey was conducted to more thoroughly analyze the reasons for the change in number of respondents. Although there is no cost to respondents to submit other than their time to participate, respondents requesting respirator approval are required to submit fees for necessary testing as specified in 42 CFR Parts 84.20–22, are produced to certain quality standards. Although 42 CFR Part 84 Subpart E prescribes certain quality standards, it is not expected that requiring approved quality standards will impose an additional cost burden over similarly effective quality standards that are not approved under 42 CFR Part 84. Manufacturers with current approvals are subject to site audits by the Institute or its agents. There is no fee associated with audits. Audits may occur periodically or as a result of a reported issue. Sixty site audits were scheduled for the 2013 calendar year. 84.66, 84.258 and 84.1102. In calendar year 2013 $449,610.135 was accepted. Applicants are required to provide test data that shows that the manufacturer is capable of ensuring that the respirator is capable of meeting the specified requirements in 42 CFR Part 84. The requirement for submitted test data is likely to be satisfied by standard testing performed by the manufacturer, and is not required to follow the relevant NIOSH Standard Test Procedures. As additional testing is not required, providing proof that an adequate test has been performed is limited to providing existing paperwork. 42 CFR Part 84 approvals offer corroboration that approved respirators ESTIMATED ANNUALIZED BURDEN HOURS Expected annual number of respondents Average annual responses per respondent 63 7 229 100,989 Business or other for-profit ...............

OMB No.: 0970–0351. Description: A State Plan is required by 8 U.S.C. 1522 of the Immigration and Nationality Act (the Act) [Title IV, Sec. 412 of the Act] for each State agency requesting Federal funding for refugee resettlement under 8 U.S.C. 524 [Title IV, Sec. 414 of the Act], including Refugee Cash and Medical Assistance, Unaccompanied Minor Refugee Program, Refugee Social Services, Cuban/Haitian Entrant Program and Targeted Assistance program funding. The State Plan is a comprehensive narrative description of the nature and scope of a States programs and provides assurances that the programs will be administered in conformity with the specific requirements stipulated in 45 CFR 400.4–400.9. The State Plan must include all applicable State procedures, designations, and certifications for each requirement as well as supporting documentation. The plan assures ORR that the State is capable of administering refugee assistance and coordinating employment and other social services for eligible caseloads in conformity with specific requirements. Implementation of the Affordable Care Act has significant impacts on States’ administration of Refugee Medical Assistance and requires information to ensure accountability and compliance with regulations. Also, Revised Medical Screening Guidelines for Newly Arriving Refugees policy (State Letter #12–09) requires assurances that medical screening is conducted in compliance with regulations and policies. The increasing complexity of the Unaccompanied Refugee Minor program, impacted by changes in federal child welfare legislation as well as state child welfare statutes, regulations and IV–B and IV–E plans, necessitates information and assurances for review of State Plans for URM programs against requirements and mandatory standards under 45 CFR Part 400, subpart H and associated State Letters and ORR guidance. Information and assurances address administrative structure and state oversight, legal responsibility, eligibility, services and case review/ planning, and interstate movement. States must use a pre-print format for required components of State Plans for ORR-funded refugee resettlement services and benefits prepared by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) of the Administration for Children and Families (ACF). States must submit by August 15 each year new or amended State Plan for the next Federal fiscal year. For previously approved plan, States must certify no later than October 31 each year that the approved State plan is current and continues in effect.

Background and Brief Description

    Section 306 of the Public Health Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C. 
242k), as amended, authorizes that the Secretary of Health and Human 
Services (DHHS), acting through NCHS, shall collect statistics on ``the 
extent and nature of illness and disability of the population of the 
United States.'' This is a revision request for a generic approval from 
OMB to conduct customer surveys over the next three years.
    As part of a comprehensive program, the National Center for Health 
Statistics (NCHS) plans to continue to assess its customers' 
satisfaction with the content, quality and relevance of the information 
it produces. NCHS will conduct voluntary customer surveys to assess 
strengths in agency products and services and to evaluate how well it 
addresses the emerging needs of its data users. Results of these 
surveys will be used in future planning initiatives.
    The data will be collected using a combination of methodologies 
appropriate to each survey. These may include: Evaluation forms, mail 
surveys, focus groups, automated and electronic technology (e.g., 
email, Web-based surveys), and telephone surveys. Systematic surveys of 
several groups will be folded into the program. Among these are Federal 
customers and policy makers, state and local officials who rely on NCHS 
data, the broader educational, research, and public health community,
