Respondents seeking to have information collected on FCC Form 175 withheld from public inspection may request confidential treatment of such information pursuant to section 0.459 of the Commission’s rules, 47 CFR Section 0.459. Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s). Needs and Uses: A request for extension of this information collection (no change in requirements) will be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) after this 60-day comment period in order to obtain the full three year clearance from OMB. The Commission’s auction rules and requirements are designed to ensure that the competitive bidding process is limited to serious qualified applicants, deter possible abuse of the bidding and licensing process, and enhance the use of competitive bidding to assign Commission licenses in furtherance of the public interest. The information collected on FCC Form 175 is used by the Commission to determine if an applicant is legally, technically, and financially qualified to participate in a Commission auction. Additionally, if an applicant applies for status as a particular type of auction participant pursuant to Commission rules, the Commission uses information collected on Form 175 to determine whether the applicant is eligible for the status requested. Commission staff reviews the information collected on FCC Form 175 for a particular auction as part of the pre-auction process, prior to the auction being held. Staff determines whether each applicant satisfies the Commission’s requirements to participate in the auction and, if applicable, is eligible for the status as a particular type of auction participant it requested. 47 CFR sections 2.106, US note 91 and 27.1134(f) require commercial licensees in the 1755–1780 MHz band to operate on a co-equal, primary operations with Federal systems within specified geographic zones and require such licensees to accept interference from Federal systems as long as such systems remain in the band. To implement these requirements, an applicant in any auction for licenses in the 1755–1780 MHz band will be required to submit a signed statement with its FCC Form 175 acknowledging these requirements. The information collected under this requirement will enable the E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1 Federal Register / Vol. 79, No. 225 / Friday, November 21, 2014 / Notices Commission to confirm that an auction applicant understands its specific obligations with respect to Federal incumbent users and systems in the 1755–1780 MHz frequency band should it ultimately become licensed in this band. The Commission plans to continue to use the FCC Form 175 for all upcoming spectrum auctions, collecting only the information necessary for each particular auction. Thus, the signed acknowledgement statement that is the subject of this collection will not be required for all auctions, and will only be used in auctions of licenses in the 1755–1780 MHz band.

PRA@fcc.gov and to Cathy.Williams@fcc.gov.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For additional information about the

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    OMB Control Number: 3060-0600.
    Title: Application to Participate in an FCC Auction, FCC 175.
    Form Number: FCC Form 175.
    Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection.
    Respondents: Business or other for-profit entities, not-for-profit 
institutions, and state, local or tribal governments.
    Estimated Number of Respondents and Responses: 500 respondents and 
500 responses.
    Estimated Time per Response: 90 minutes (estimated average time for 
respondents to report information requested on FCC Form 175).
    Frequency of Response: On occasion reporting requirements.
    Obligation to Respond: Required to obtain or retain benefits. 
Statutory authority for the currently approved information collection 
is contained in sections 154(i), 309(j)(5), and 1404 of the 
Communications Act, as amended, 47 U.S.C. sections 4(i), 309(j)(5), 
1404, and sections 1.2105, 1.2110, 1.2112, 2.106, US note 91, and 
27.1134(f) of the Commission's rules, 47 CFR sections 1.2105, 1.2110, 
1.2112, 2.106, US note 91, and 27.1134(f).
    Estimated Total Annual Burden: 750 hours.
    Total Annual Costs: No costs.
    Nature and Extent of Confidentiality: Information collected on FCC 
Form 175 is made available for public inspection, and the Commission is 
not requesting that respondents submit confidential information on FCC 
Form 175. Respondents seeking to have information collected on FCC Form 
175 withheld from public inspection may request confidential treatment 
of such information pursuant to section 0.459 of the Commission's 
rules, 47 CFR Section 0.459.
    Privacy Act Impact Assessment: No impact(s).
    Needs and Uses: A request for extension of this information 
collection (no change in requirements) will be submitted to the Office 
of Management and Budget (OMB) after this 60-day comment period in 
order to obtain the full three year clearance from OMB. The 
Commission's auction rules and requirements are designed to ensure that 
the competitive bidding process is limited to serious qualified 
applicants, deter possible abuse of the bidding and licensing process, 
and enhance the use of competitive bidding to assign Commission 
licenses in furtherance of the public interest. The information 
collected on FCC Form 175 is used by the Commission to determine if an 
applicant is legally, technically, and financially qualified to 
participate in a Commission auction. Additionally, if an applicant 
applies for status as a particular type of auction participant pursuant 
to Commission rules, the Commission uses information collected on Form 
175 to determine whether the applicant is eligible for the status 
requested. Commission staff reviews the information collected on FCC 
Form 175 for a particular auction as part of the pre-auction process, 
prior to the auction being held. Staff determines whether each 
applicant satisfies the Commission's requirements to participate in the 
auction and, if applicable, is eligible for the status as a particular 
type of auction participant it requested. 47 CFR sections 2.106, US 
note 91 and 27.1134(f) require commercial licensees in the 1755-1780 
MHz band to operate on a co-equal, primary operations with Federal 
systems within specified geographic zones and require such licensees to 
accept interference from Federal systems as long as such systems remain 
in the band. To implement these requirements, an applicant in any 
auction for licenses in the 1755-1780 MHz band will be required to 
submit a signed statement with its FCC Form 175 acknowledging these 
requirements. The information collected under this requirement will 
enable the

[[Page 69475]]

Commission to confirm that an auction applicant understands its 
specific obligations with respect to Federal incumbent users and 
systems in the 1755-1780 MHz frequency band should it ultimately become 
licensed in this band. The Commission plans to continue to use the FCC 
Form 175 for all upcoming spectrum auctions, collecting only the 
information necessary for each particular auction. Thus, the signed 
acknowledgement statement that is the subject of this collection will 
not be required for all auctions, and will only be used in auctions of 
licenses in the 1755-1780 MHz band.
