Download as PDF Rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES 23272 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 80 / Monday, April 27, 2015 / Notices objectives and loading targets for Lake Erie. DATES: The public teleconference for the Chartered SAB will be held on Wednesday, May 27, 2015, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. (Eastern Standard Time). Location: The public teleconference will be conducted by telephone only. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Any member of the public wishing to obtain information concerning the public teleconferences may contact Mr. Thomas Carpenter, Designated Federal Officer (DFO), EPA Science Advisory Board Staff Office (1400R), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, 1200 Pennsylvania Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20460; by telephone/voice mail at (202) 564–4885 or at carpenter.thomas@ epa.gov. General information about the SAB as well as any updates concerning the teleconferences announced in this notice may be found on the EPA Web site at http://www.epa.gov/sab. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The SAB was established pursuant to the Environmental Research, Development, and Demonstration Authorization Act (ERDDAA), codified at 42 U.S.C. 4365, to provide independent scientific and technical advice to the Administrator on the technical basis for Agency positions and regulations. The SAB is a federal advisory committee chartered under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), 5 U.S.C., App. 2. Pursuant to FACA and EPA policy, notice is hereby given that the Chartered SAB will hold a public teleconference for two purposes. The first purpose is to discuss recommendations regarding the information provided in the agency’s Fall 2014 regulatory agenda, specifically planned actions and their supporting science. Information about this advisory activity can be found on the Web at http://yosemite.epa.gov/sab/ sabproduct.nsf/fedrgstr_activites/ SAB%20Fall%202014%20 Reg%20Agenda?OpenDocument. The second purpose of this public teleconference is to review a draft SAB consultation report on the scientific and technical merit of the EPA’s draft approach to develop preliminary binational phosphorous objectives and loading targets for Lake Erie. Quality review is a key function of the chartered SAB. Draft reports prepared by SAB committees, panels, or work groups must be reviewed and approved by the chartered SAB before transmittal to the EPA Administrator. Consistent with FACA, the chartered SAB makes a determination in a public meeting about each draft report and determines VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:41 Apr 24, 2015 Jkt 235001 whether the report is ready to be transmitted to the EPA Administrator. The SAB review will focus on a draft report on the EPA’s plan to use an ensemble modeling approach to develop preliminary binational phosphorous objectives, loading targets and allocations for nearshore and offshore waters. Information about this advisory activity can be found on the Web at http://yosemite.epa.gov/sab/ sabproduct.nsf/fedrgstr_activites/ GLWQA?OpenDocument. Availability of Meeting Materials: The agenda and materials in support of these teleconferences will be available on the EPA Web site at http://www.epa.gov/sab in advance of the teleconferences. Procedures for Providing Public Input: Public comment for consideration by EPA’s federal advisory committees and panels has a different purpose from public comment provided to EPA program offices. Therefore, the process for submitting comments to a federal advisory committee is different from the process used to submit comments to an EPA program office. Federal advisory committees and panels, including scientific advisory committees, provide independent advice to EPA. Members of the public can submit comments for a federal advisory committee to consider as it develops advice for EPA. Input from the public to the SAB will have the most impact if it provides specific scientific or technical information or analysis for SAB panels to consider or if it relates to the clarity or accuracy of the technical information. Members of the public wishing to provide comment should contact the Designated Federal Officer as noted above. Oral Statements: In general, individuals or groups requesting an oral presentation at a teleconference will be limited to three minutes. Each person making an oral statement should consider providing written comments as well as their oral statement so that the points presented orally can be expanded upon in writing. Interested parties should contact Mr. Carpenter, DFO, in writing (preferably via email) at the contact information noted above one week before the teleconference to be placed on the list of public speakers. Written Statements: Written statements should be supplied to the DFO, preferably via email, at the contact information noted above one week before each of the teleconferences so that the information may be made available to the Board members for their consideration. It is the SAB Staff Office general policy to post written comments on the Web page for the advisory meeting or teleconference. Submitters are requested to provide an unsigned PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 version of each document because the SAB Staff Office does not publish documents with signatures on its Web sites. Members of the public should be aware that their personal contact information, if included in any written comments, may be posted to the SAB Web site. Copyrighted material will not be posted without explicit permission of the copyright holder. Accessibility: For information on access or services for individuals with disabilities, please contact Mr. Thomas Carpenter at (202) 564–4885 or carpenter.thomas@epa.gov. To request accommodation of a disability, please contact Mr. Carpenter preferably at least ten days prior to the teleconference to give EPA as much time as possible to process your request.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: EIB 15–01, Generic Clearance for the Collection of Feedback on Electronic Interfaces with Customers. OMB Number: TBD. Type of Review: New. Need and Use: This is a request for a new three-year generic clearance for the Export-Import Bank of the United States (Ex-Im Bank) that will allow it to develop, test and improve its digital customer interfaces—including on-line applications for financing support, other on-line reporting, and the agency’s Web site. The procedures used to this effect include, but are not limited to, tests of various interfaces through focus groups, cognitive testing, web-based experiments and usability testing. Ex-Im Bank is requesting the generic clearance in order to test new or proposed methodologies for customer interfaces, data collection activities, and Web site design. We believe the generic clearance will be a helpful vehicle for evaluating the usability and effectiveness of these methodologies. In the past, Ex-Im Bank has approached design and testing through convenience samples of nine or fewer persons to provide input and feedback or by relying on employee feedback. Neither of these approaches meets ExIm Bank’s needs to collect meaningful information on the usability and effectiveness of its customer interfaces. In the reference document we have provided a description of the scope of possible activities that might be covered under this clearance. The requested clearance is important to Ex-Im Bank’s usability testing program, because of the length of time required to develop customer interfaces. The specific methods proposed for coverage by this clearance are listed below. Also outlined are the procedures Ex-Im Bank plans to put in place for keeping OMB informed about the identity of the usability tests and the nature of the research activities being conducted. The methods proposed for use in system development are as follows: • Pilot testing, • Behavior coding, • Exploratory interviews, • Split sample experiments, • Cognitive and usability interviews, and Rmajette on DSK2VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:41 Apr 24, 2015 Jkt 235001 • Focus groups. Before each testing activity is undertaken, Ex-Im Bank will provide OMB with a memo describing the study to be conducted and a copy of the instrumentation and instruction materials that will be used. Depending on the stage of instrumentation development, this may be a printed questionnaire, a set of prototype items showing each item type to be used and the range of topics to be covered by the questionnaire, or an interview script. When split sample experiments are conducted, either in small group sessions or as part of a field test, the different versions of the questionnaires to be used will be provided. For a test of alternative procedures, the description and rationale for the procedures will be submitted. A brief description of the planned field activity will also be provided.
