Notice of National Advisory Council on Innovation and Entrepreneurship Meeting, 52444 [2015-21459]

Download as PDF 52444 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 168 / Monday, August 31, 2015 / Notices for square footage of the construction project. This information was used for editing but is no longer needed. The second change is the addition of a data item to collect the projected completion date to assist with imputation if a response is not obtained in future months. II. Method of Collection An independent systematic sample of construction projects is selected each month according to predetermined sample rates. Once a project is selected, it remains in the sample until completion of the project. Preprinted forms are mailed monthly to respondents to fill in current month data and any revisions to previous months. Respondents also have the option to report online using a password protected site. Nonrespondents are later called by a Census interviewer and are asked to report data over the phone. Having the information available from a database at the time of the interview greatly helps reduce the time respondents spend on the phone. Interviews are scheduled at the convenience of the respondent, which further reduces their burden. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0607–0153. Form Number(s): C–700, C–700(R), C– 700(SL), C–700(F). Type of Review: Regular submission. Affected Public: Individuals, Businesses or Other for Profit, Not-forProfit Institutions, Small Businesses or Organizations, State and Local Governments and the Federal Government. Estimated Number of Respondents: C–700 = 6,900; C–700(R) = 3,300; C– 700(SL) = 12,200; C–700(F) = 1,600; TOTAL = 24,000. Estimated Time per Response: 30 min. for the first month; and 10 min. for the subsequent months. We estimate, on average, that projects remain in sample for 12 months. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 56,000. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: Title 13 U.S.C. 131 and 182. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES IV. Request for Comments Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden (including hours and cost) of the VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:19 Aug 28, 2015 Jkt 235001 proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval of this information collection; they also will become a matter of public record.
