Download as PDF asabaliauskas on DSK5VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 81 / Tuesday, April 28, 2015 / Notices This is satisfied by requiring the completion and submission of a Report and Fee Statement, which indicates when the arbitration award was rendered, the file number, the company and union, the issues, whether briefs were filed and transcripts taken, if there were any waivers by parties on the date the award was due, and the fees and days for services of the arbitrator. FMCS publishes this information in the agency’s annual report, to inform the public about the arbitration services program and certain national trends in arbitration. Burden: FMCS receives approximately 1,984 responses per year. The form is filled out each time an arbitrator hears a case and the time required is approximately ten minutes. FMCS uses this form to review arbitrator conformance with its fee and expense reporting requirements. Agency: Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service Form Number: OMB No. 3076–0002 Type of Request: Reinstatement of a collection without change in the substance or method of collection. Name of Form: Request for Arbitration Panel (FMCS Form R–43) Affected Entities: Employers and their representatives, and labor unions, their representatives and employees, who request arbitration services. Frequency: This form is completed each time an employer or labor union requests a panel of arbitrators. Abstract: Pursuant to 29 U.S.C. 171(b) and 29 CFR part 1404, FMCS offers panels of arbitrators for selection by labor and management to resolve grievances and disagreements arising under their collective bargaining agreements and to deal with fact finding and interest arbitration issues as well. This form is used to obtain information such as the parties’ names, addresses, and the type of assistance needed. FMCS uses this information to compile panels, selecting arbitrators based in part on such factors as dispute location and issue expertise. The purpose of this information collection is to facilitate the processing of the parties’ request for arbitration assistance. No third party notification or public disclosure burden is associated with this collection. Burden: The current total annual burden estimate is that FMCS will receive requests from approximately 13,179 respondents per year. The form takes about 10 minutes to complete. II. Request for Comments FMCS solicits comments to: (i) Evaluate whether the proposed collections of information are necessary for the proper performance of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:18 Apr 27, 2015 Jkt 235001 functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility. (ii) Enhance the accuracy of the agency’s estimates of the burden of the proposed collection of information. (iii) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. (iv) Minimize the burden of the collections of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic collection technologies or other forms of information technology.

ACTION: Notice. AGENCY: The purpose of this notice is to announce a software programming and data innovation competition hosted by GSA’s Office of Digital Innovation and Strategy that will be held on May 8, 2015. The competition details can be viewed at http://open.gsa.gov/DigitalInnovation-Hackathon/. The goal of this competition is to ask the public and academia to develop smart technology solutions in the form of an application, Application Programming Interface (API), and/or data mashup that has the capability to providing GSA with key insights and recommendations for future enhancements. GSA will challenge software developers and designers to create a solution using sample GSA data. DATES: Registration for the event will close Tuesday, May 5, at 11:59 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST). The competition will be open on Friday, May 8, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (EST). SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00057 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Registration: Registration for this event will be accomplished online at the following link: https:// www.eventbrite.com/e/us-generalservices-administration-gsa-hack-athon-tickets-15637828165. The event space is limited to the first 120 people; once registration is complete, participants will receive a confirmation email. Event Location: 1800 F Street NW., Washington, DC 20405, Conference Center. A government-issued ID shall be required to gain access into the building. All participants must enter through the main entrance located on 18th Street. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Ms. Cindy A. Smith at cindya.smith@gsa.gov or 816–823–5291. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Purpose: In this competition, the public is asked to develop a technologydriven solution using GSA data that allows an agency to identify opportunities for improvements and transparency. As such, GSA challenges the public to create a solution using GSA data that could be replicated across government to every agency, using their own data. Sample data sets with GSA data will be provided. Details of Challenge: Design and create a digital interactive solution in the form of an application, Application Programming Interface (API), and/or data mashup that utilizes federal data collected by GSA. The technology solution should be innovative! GSA does not want an analysis tool that tells what is already known. This should be a forward-thinking solution that enhances transparency. The solution should be a data-driven solution to provide meaningful insights that can help drive smarter decisions by federal employees. The ultimate goal is to help federal agencies use data to its fullest, share data with all agencies, and become transparent to the American Public. The solution should accomplish two tasks: 1. Visually display or transmit data in a way that will enhance the way GSA works; and 2. Through analysis of the data identify relationships if they exist, and provide valuable insights that could be gained through improved data collection efforts. GSA will assign teams randomly based on the number of participants on the day of the event. No pre-determined team arrangements will be permitted. Modification to team make-up may occur based on team skill make-up at the direction of the competition host. ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\28APN1.SGM 28APN1
