SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    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 
displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation is available 
at http://www.reginfo.gov. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and 
approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting 
comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

    TSA's Screening Partnership Program (SPP) (implementing 49 U.S.C. 
44920) enables commercial airports to apply for a private screening 
company to provide passenger and baggage security screening services. 
An airport submits the SPP application to have employees of a qualified 
private company carry out the screening of passengers and property at 
the airport. The SPP application will collect the following from each 
airport seeking to participate in SPP:
     Basic airport information: airport name, FAA identifier, 
and airport operating authority;
     Primary airport operator contact: name, position, phone, 
mailing address and email address;

[[Page 37764]]

     Indication of whether or not the airport desires to 
provide its own screening services;
     Recommendation on which private screening company should 
perform the screening function, and why, and whether or not the airport 
intends to enter into a business relationship with the recommended 
company;
     Information on any major activities scheduled to occur at 
the airport within the next five years that could impact the transition 
from federal screening to private screening (for example, major 
construction); and
     Optional information may be provided to support the 
consideration of their application.

Purpose and Description of Data Collection

    The submission of the SPP application represents the initial 
notification to TSA of an airport's desire to opt-out of the federal 
screening provided by TSA employees. TSA currently has a screening 
presence at approximately 450 airports, of which 18 airports are 
actively participating in SPP.
    The annual burden for the information collection related to SPP is 
estimated to be two-hours thirty minutes (2.5 hours). TSA estimates 
that 10 airports will respond annually. The agency estimates that each 
respondent airport will spend approximately one quarter (.25) hour to 
complete the application for a total burden of two-hours thirty minutes 
(2.50 hours). TSA does not require the airports to maintain records of 
the application submission. However, if the airport choses to do so, 
the burden associated with this action is anticipated to be minimal.

Use of Information

    TSA will acknowledge receipt of the application, review for 
completeness, and provide an official response within 120 days from the 
date of acknowledgement. If the application submission is complete, TSA 
will provide the applicant with an appropriate approval response and 
include a status update. If the application is incomplete, TSA will 
provide a detailed response identifying the actions required for a 
successful application submission.
    The application contains no personally identifiable information, 
sensitive security information, or classified information, so no 
special handling or protection is required.
