OMB Number: 0560–0233. Expiration Date: 06/30/2015. Type of Request: Extension. Abstract: FSA’s Farm Loan Programs provide loans to family farmers to purchase real estate and equipment and finance agricultural production. Direct Loan Servicing—Special, found at 7 CFR part 766, provides the requirements for servicing financially distressed and delinquent direct loan borrowers. FSA’s loan servicing options include disaster set-aside, primary loan servicing (including reamortization, rescheduling, deferral, write down and conservation contracts), buyout at market value, and homestead protection. FSA also services borrowers who file bankruptcy or liquidate security when available servicing options are not sufficient to produce a feasible plan. The information collections contained in the regulation are necessary to evaluate a borrower’s request for consideration of the special servicing actions. The formula used to calculate the total burden hour is estimated average time per responses hours times total annual responses. Estimate of Respondent Burden: Public reporting burden for this information collection is estimated to average 0.58 hours per response. The average travel time, which is included in the total burden, is estimated to be 1 hour per respondent. Respondents: Individuals or households, businesses or other for profit farms. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 14,934. Estimated Number of Reponses per Respondent: 1.9. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 27,923. Estimated Average Time per Response: 0.58. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 15,858. We are requesting comments on all aspects of this information collection to help us to: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the FSA, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the FSA’s estimate of burden including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (3) Enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. All comments received in response to this notice, including names and addresses when provided, will be a matter of public record. Comments will be summarized and included in the submission for Office of Management and Budget approval. Signed on November 13, 2014. Candance Thompson, Acting Administrator, Farm Service Agency.

ACTION: Notice of Determination. AGENCY: The Bureau of the Census (Census Bureau) is conducting the 2015 annual surveys in the manufacturing area. The 2015 annual surveys consist of the Annual Survey of Manufactures, the Business R&D and Innovation Survey, and the Manufacturers’ Unfilled Orders Survey. These annual surveys will be sent to a sample of establishments and companies that participate in manufacturing activities. We have determined that annual data collected from these surveys are needed to aid the efficient performance of essential governmental functions, and have significant application to the needs of the public and industry. The data derived from these surveys, most of which have been conducted for many years, are not publicly available from nongovernmental or other governmental sources. ADDRESSES: The Census Bureau will furnish report forms to organizations included in the survey. Additional copies are available upon written request to the Director, U.S. Census Bureau, Washington, DC 20233–0101. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Kevin E. Deardorff, Chief, Economywide Statistics Division at (301) 763– 6033 or via email at kevin.e.deardorff@ census.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Census Bureau is authorized to conduct mandatory surveys necessary to furnish current data on the subjects covered by the major censuses authorized by Title 13, United States Code, sections 61, 81, 131, 182, 193, 224, and 225. These surveys will provide continuing and timely national statistical data on SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00002 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 manufacturing for the period between economic censuses. The data collected in the surveys will be within the general scope and nature of those inquiries covered in the economic census. The next economic census will be conducted for the year 2017. Annual Survey of Manufactures The Annual Survey of Manufactures collects industry statistics, such as total value of shipments, employment, payroll, workers’ hours, capital expenditures, cost of materials consumed, supplemental labor costs, and so forth. This survey is conducted on a sample basis, and covers all manufacturing industries, including data on plants under construction but not yet in operation. All data items are collected on a mandatory basis under the authority of Title 13, United States Code. Business R&D and Innovation Survey The Business R&D and Innovation Survey (BRDIS) measures spending on research and development activities by United States businesses. This survey replaced the Survey of Industrial Research and Development that had been collected since the 1950’s. The BRDIS collects global as well as domestic spending information, more detailed information about the R&D workforce, and information regarding innovation and intellectual property from U.S. businesses. The Census Bureau collects and compiles this information in accordance with a joint project agreement between the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Census Bureau. The NSF publishes the results in its publication series. All data items are collected on a mandatory basis under the authority of Title 13, United States Code. Manufacturers’ Unfilled Orders Survey The Manufacturers’ Unfilled Orders Survey collects data on sales and unfilled orders in order to provide annual benchmarks for unfilled orders for the monthly Manufacturers’ Shipments, Inventories, and Orders (M3) survey. The monthly M3 uses the shipment and inventory data from Annual Survey of Manufactures as the source of benchmark data, however unfilled orders are not collected on the Annual Survey of Manufactures. The annual Manufacturers’ Unfilled Orders will be used to determine whether it is necessary to collect unfilled orders data for specific industries on a monthly basis (on the monthly M3 survey form). All data items are collected on a mandatory basis under the authority of Title 13, United States Code. E:\FR\FM\21NON1.SGM 21NON1
