AGENCY: ACTION: We (National Park Service) will ask the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve the information collection (IC) described below. As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 and as part of our continuing efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, we invite the general public and other Federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on this collection of information (OMB #1024–0224). This IC is scheduled to expire on August 31, 2014.

SUMMARY: I. Abstract The NPS needs information concerning park visitors and visitor services, potential park visitors, and residents of communities near parks to provide National Park Service (NPS) managers with usable information for improving the quality and utility of agency programs, services, and planning efforts. Since many of the NPS surveys are similar in terms of the populations being surveyed, the types of questions PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 being asked, and research methodologies, the NPS proposes to renew its clearance from OMB for a Generic Information Collection (1024– 0224) of NPS-sponsored surveys. Since 1999, the benefits of this generic approval program have been significant to the NPS, Department of the Interior, OMB, NPS cooperators, and the public. Significant time and cost savings have been incurred and more than 550 surveys have been conducted in units throughout the National Park System. Approval is typically granted within 60 days or less from the date the Principal Investigator (PI) first submits the survey package to the NPS Information Review Coordinator for review. This is a significant reduction over the approximately 6–9 months involved in the regular OMB review process. We are requesting an extension of this collection for the purposes of revising the current Pool of Known questions that are the primary function of this process. We are planning to host a series of workshops of social science researches to update the original list of questions and topics that are more than 20 years old because many questions in the current listing are underutilized. This extension will allow for the effective outreach prescribed in item 8 of Supporting Statement Part A. II. Data OMB Number: 1024–0224.
