SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    The BIA is seeking to revise the information collection conducted 
under 25 CFR part 23, related to the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). 
BIA collects information using a consolidated caseload form, which 
tribal ICWA program directors fill out. BIA uses the information to 
determine the extent of service needs in local Indian communities, 
assess ICWA program effectiveness, and provide date for the annual 
program budget justification. The aggregated report is not considered 
confidential. A response is required to obtain and/or retain a benefit.
    The revision includes changes to the existing form, reducing which 
is now, Part A--Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) Data, and adds a new 
section, Part B--Tribal Child Abuse Neglect Data. Part A--ICWA Data has 
been simplified, including fewer categories that were no longer 
considered useful for planning purposes, based on feedback received 
from BIA Regional staff. Part B--Tribal Child Abuse and Neglect Data is 
a new section. Part B only applies to tribes that operate child 
protection programs.
    A copy of the forms will be made available on the Web site at 
http://www.bia.gov/WhoWeAre/BIA/OIS/HumanServices/index.htm for review 
and comment. We estimate the hourly burden for Part A--ICWA Data will 
be reduced, from 30 minutes to 15 minutes, and when applicable, Part 
B--Tribal Child Abuse and Neglect Data is estimated to take 
approximately 15 minutes to complete.

II. Request for Comments

    The BIA requests your comments on this collection concerning: (a) 
The necessity of this information collection for the proper performance 
of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will 
have practical utility; (b) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of 
the burden (hours and cost) of the collection of information, including 
the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (c) Ways we could 
enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be 
collected; and (d) Ways we could minimize the burden of the collection 
of the information on the respondents.
    Please note that an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and an 
individual need not respond to, a collection of information unless it 
has a valid OMB Control Number.
    It is our policy to make all comments available to the public for 
review at the location listed in the ADDRESSES section. Before 
including your address, phone number, email address or other personal 
identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your 
entire comment--including your personal identifying information--may be 
made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your 
comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public 
review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
