In addition, if the Census Bureau better understands how businesses retain and analyze their own data, the Census Bureau can better plan future collections and reduce respondent burden. Policymakers and businesses are also increasingly aware of the impact of uncertainty on decisions such as hiring and investing in capital. The 2015 MOPS also has a new module on ‘‘Uncertainty’’ that will help researchers better understand the effects of uncertainty on management decisions. A notice published in the Federal Register on April 21, 2015, announcing our intention to submit this request did not mention the inclusion of these two new modules. The decision to include the modules was made subsequent to the publication of that notice. From the 2010 MOPS, the Census Bureau created a press release, ‘‘Census Bureau Offers First-Ever Large Scale Look at American Management Practices’’. Pending an Internal Revenue Service review of the file, the Census Bureau intends to release a Public Use Microdata File from the 2010 collected responses. Affected Public: Business or other forprofit. Frequency: One time. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Legal Authority: The 2015 MOPS will be conducted under authority of title 13, United States Code, sections 131, and 182. The collection is mandatory under the provisions of title 13, United Sates Code, sections 224, and 225. This information collection request may be viewed at www.reginfo.gov. Follow the instructions to view Department of Commerce collections currently under review by OMB. Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be sent within 30 days of publication of this notice to OIRA_Submission@ omb.eop.gov or fax to (202) 395–5806.

The 2017 CFS will be the subject of a separate Office of Management and Budget (OMB) clearance submission in the spring of 2016.

An advance letter will be mailed to a sample from U.S. manufacturing, mining, and wholesale establishments, enterprise support establishments, electronic shopping, mail-order houses, and publishing establishments, and establishments expected to be selected with certainty in the 2017 CFS. Selected small establishments from industries with a high incidence of non-shipping activity will also receive the letter. The Census Bureau is streamlining operations to conserve taxpayer time and money. This includes moving from paper-based data collection operations to on-line-based data collection operations. The letter will direct the selected establishments to complete the on-line 2017 CFS Advance Questionnaire. No paper questionnaires were created for mailing. Respondents will have the opportunity to print what PO 00000 Frm 00005 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 57571 they report on the on-line questionnaire at the time of data submission for their records.
