Information will be collected for calendar year 2014. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time needed for an average respondent to respond: BJS estimates 595 respondents are eligible to complete this survey. BJS will submit the NSTCS to the 426 tribal courts identified in the lower 48 states and Alaska, the 29 Courts of Federal Regulation, and to the estimated 140 federally recognized tribal governments for which the current existence of a tribal court is unknown. BJS will conduct a complete census of each tribal court, by location and type. Based on pilot testing an average of 2 hours each is needed to complete the form appropriate for the respective tribal systems: NSTCS–14L48, NSTCS–14AK, or NSTCS–14CFR. The NSTCS respondent burden of 2 hours is calculated using an estimate of per respondent by tribe, location or type of court. The burden hours were calculated as follows: (a) NSTCS–14L48 has an average respondent burden of 2 hours and 15 minutes and 336 tribal courts and/or tribes are located in the lower 48 states that will be sent this version of the survey (336 Lower 48 Courts/tribes * 2.25 = 756 hours); (b) NSTCS–14AK has an average respondent burden of 2 hours and about 220 tribal courts and/ or tribes located in Alaska will be sent this version of the survey (220 Alaska Courts * 2 = 460 hours); and c) NSTCS– 14CFR has an average respondent burden of 1 hour and 30 minutes and about 29 CFR courts will be sent this version of the survey (29 CFR Courts * 1.5 = 43.5 hours). The combined estimated respondent burden for completion of all three questionnaire versions is 1259.5 hours. BJS added 7% or about 86.5 additional burden hours for the non-response follow-up and data validation (1259.5 + 86.5 =1,350 hours). The estimated combined range of burden for all respondents is between 1.5 to 2.5 hours for completion. The following factors were considered when creating the burden estimate: The total number of identified tribal courts, the number of tribes for which the existence of a tribal court or traditional justice forum is unknown, the ability of tribal courts to access or gather the data, and the case management and information system capabilities generally found within Indian country. BJS estimates that nearly all of the approximately 595 respondents will fully complete the questionnaire, either reporting their tribal court systems data and/or VerDate Mar<15>2010 17:31 Aug 22, 2014 Jkt 232001 confirming the tribe does not operate any form of court system. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: BJS has estimated the total respondent burden for the proposed 2014 NSTCS at 1,350 hours. This estimated total burden includes the time for completion by each federally recognized tribe and/or tribal court tribal courts, Courts of federal regulations, and subsequent time for non-response follow-up or validation. This new estimate of respondent burden has increased from the 300 burden hours noted in the 60 day notice, because BJS has since confirmed the name of 426 tribal courts or traditional forums and will implement a strategy to reduce any coverage error for any potentially unknown tribal court systems.
