DATES: Comments on this notice must be received by November 24, 2015. Additional Information or Comments: Contact Mark Slupek, Director, Program Operations Division, Foreign Agricultural Service, Room 6510, 1400 Independence Avenue SW, Washington, DC 20250, (202) 720–4327, fax: (202) 720–9361, email: podadmin@ fas.usda.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Foreign Market Development Cooperator Program and Market Access Program. OMB Number: 0551–0026. Expiration Date of Approval: February 29, 2016. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved information collection process. The Estimated Number of Respondents and Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents are decreasing. Abstract: The primary objective of the Foreign Market Development Cooperator Program and the Market Access Program is to encourage and aid in the creation, maintenance, and VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:58 Sep 24, 2015 Jkt 235001 expansion of commercial export markets for U.S. agricultural products through cost-share assistance to eligible trade organizations. The programs are a cooperative effort between CCC and the eligible trade organizations. Currently, there are about 64 organizations participating directly in the programs with activities in more than 100 countries. Prior to initiating program activities, each Cooperator or MAP participant must submit a detailed application to the Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS) which includes an assessment of overseas market potential; market or country strategies, constraints, goals, and benchmarks; proposed market development activities; estimated budgets; and performance measurements. Prior years’ plans often dictate the content of current year plans because many activities are continuations of previous activities. Each Cooperator or MAP participant is also responsible for submitting: (1) Reimbursement claims for approved costs incurred in carrying out approved activities, (2) an end-of-year contribution report, (3) travel reports, and (4) progress reports/evaluation studies. Cooperators or MAP participants must maintain records on all information submitted to FAS. The information collected is used by FAS to manage, plan, evaluate, and account for Government resources. The reports and records are required to ensure the proper and judicious use of public funds. Because the number of Participants in MAP and FMD has decreased slightly since 2012, the Estimated Number of Respondents and Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents are decreasing. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 20 hours per response. Respondents: Non-profit agricultural trade organizations, state regional trade groups, agricultural cooperatives, state agencies, and commercial entities. Estimated Number of Respondents: 64. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 68. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 85,304 hours. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Connie Ehrhart, the Agency Information Collection Coordinator, at (202) 690–1578.
