Download as PDF 56605 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 183 / Monday, September 22, 2014 / Notices purposes and publish any resulting fee adjustments in the Federal Register. Accordingly, the FBI conducted a fee study using FY 2012 cost information applied to the FY 2014 name check projections to assess the current cost to the FBI of processing name checks. The methodology for this new fee study is the same as the FBI has used previously, employing the Activity Based Cost (ABC) accounting method detailed in the Final Rule establishing the process for setting fees (75 FR 24796 (May 6, 2010)). The ABC methodology is consistent with widely accepted accounting principles in addition to the provisions of 31 9701 and other applicable federal law. The fee study identified all direct and indirect costs associated with the name-based background checks incurred by the FBI in fiscal year 2012. These costs were analyzed by the ABC model to project the total reimbursable costs, by fee category, for fiscal year 2014. The fee study recommended several adjustments to the current user fees, which have been in effect since March 4, 2011. The following table details the fee amounts for federal agencies requesting name-based background checks of the FBI’s CRS through the NNCP for noncriminal justice purposes. Fee currently in effect Service Electronic Submission: Batch Process Only ..................................................................................................................... Batch + File Review ..................................................................................................................... Manual Submission ..................................................................................................................... Expedited Submission ................................................................................................................. The higher Batch Fee is based on the increase of certain direct costs, such as those related to information technology acquisition. Manual and Expedited Fees, which only accounted for .027% of all reimbursable submissions in FY 2013, increased due to fixed costs remaining constant while submissions decreased. This new fee schedule will become effective on October 15, 2014. Janies B. Comey, Jr., Director, Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Robert T. Stafford Disaster Relief and Emergency Assistance Act sections 410 and 423 provide for assistance to eligible individuals who are unemployed due to a major disaster. State Workforce Agencies through individual agreements with the Secretary of Labor, act as agents of the Federal government in providing Disaster Unemployment Assistance (DUA) to eligible applicants who are unemployed as a direct result of a major disaster. Form ETA–902 is a monthly report submitted by a State on DUA program activities once the President declares a disaster. Form ETA–902 is prescribed pursuant to regulations 20 CFR 625.8 and 625.9 and is necessary for oversight of the DUA program. This information collection has been classified as a revision, because Form 902–A has been discontinued. Form 902–A was designed specifically for the Gulf Coast Oil Spill. The time has passed for submitting Form 902–A; consequently, its continuance no longer has practical utility. Social Security Act section 303(a)(6) authorizes this information collection. See 42 U.S.C. 503(a)(6). This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number.
