current information regarding emergency situations on U.S. electric 
energy supply systems. The data also may be used to develop legislative 
recommendations, reports to the Congress and as a basis for DOE 
investigations following severe, prolonged, or repeated electric power 
reliability problems.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This information collection request 
contains: (1) OMB No. 1901-0288; (2) Information Collection Request 
Title: Emergency Electric Incident and Disturbance Report; (3) Three-
year extension; (4) Purpose: The Federal Energy Administration Act of 
1974 (Public Law 93-275, 15 U.S.C. 761 et seq.) and the DOE 
Organization Act (Public Law 95-91, 42 U.S.C. 7101 et seq.) requires 
the DOE to carry out a centralized, comprehensive, and unified energy 
information program. This program collects, analyzes, and disseminates 
information on energy resource reserves, production, demand, 
technology, and related economic and statistical information. This 
information is used to assess the adequacy of energy resources to meet 
near and longer-term domestic demands.
    Currently, OE uses Form OE-417 to monitor major system incidents on 
the electric power systems, assess power generating capacity in the 
event of a significant disruption, and to conduct after-action non-
regulatory investigations on significant interruptions of electric 
power. The information is used to meet DOE national-security 
responsibilities and requirements as set forth in the U.S. Department 
of Homeland Security's National Response Framework. The information may 
also be used in developing legislative recommendations/reports to 
Congress and coordinating Federal efforts regarding activities such as 
incidents/disturbances in critical infrastructure protection, the 
continuity of electric industry operations, and the continuity of 
operations. The information submitted may also be used by OE to analyze 
significant power interruptions of electric power from a non-regulatory 
perspective.
    Based upon feedback received from the 60-Day Federal Register 
Notice, OE does not intend to proceed with protecting Schedule 2 of 
Form OE-417 under the Confidential Information Protection and 
Statistical Efficiency Act of 2002. Instead, OE proposes to maintain 
the current data protections of the form.
