FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Jo Amato Burns, Attorney, Office of the General Counsel, Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, 1200 K Street NW., Washington, DC 20005–4026, 202– 326–4400. (For TTY and TDD, call 800– 877–8339 and ask to be connected to 202–326–4400.) SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PBGC intends to request that OMB approve modifications to a collection of information needed to pay participants and beneficiaries who may be entitled to pension benefits under defined benefit plans that have terminated. The collection consists of information participants and beneficiaries are asked to provide in connection with an application for benefits. In addition, in some instances, as part of an effort to identify participants and beneficiaries who may be entitled to benefits, PBGC requests individuals to provide identifying information that the individual would provide as part of an initial contact with PBGC. All requested information is needed to enable PBGC to determine benefit entitlements and to make appropriate payments. The information collection includes My Pension Benefit Account (My PBA), an application on PBGC’s Web site, http://www.pbgc.gov, through which plan participants and beneficiaries may conduct electronic transactions with PBGC, including applying for pension benefits, designating a beneficiary, granting a power of attorney, electing monthly payments, electing to withhold income tax from periodic payments, changing contact information, and applying for electronic direct deposit. PBGC is proposing to add a new form to the information collection: Form XXX, Benefit Inquiry Questionnaire. PBGC will send this form to individuals who contact PBGC to inquire whether PO 00000 Frm 00070 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 PBGC is holding any benefits to which they are entitled. The questionnaire will request information that PBGC needs to determine whether the individual is owed benefits and, if so, the benefit amount. In addition, PBGC is making clarifying, simplifying, editorial, and other changes to other forms in the information collection. The existing collection of information under the regulation was approved under OMB control number 1212–0055 (expires December 31, 2015). PBGC intends to request that OMB extend its approval (with modifications) for three years. An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. PBGC estimates the total annual burden associated with this collection of information will be 73,000 hours and $1,900. PBGC is soliciting public comments to— • Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Introduction In accordance with 39 U.S.C. 3642 and 39 CFR 3020.30 et seq., the Postal Service filed a formal request and associated supporting information to remove Global Direct Contracts from the competitive product list.1 To support its Request, the Postal Service filed four attachments as follows: • Attachment A—a redacted copy of the Governors’ Decision No. 11–6 authorizing the removal of the product from the competitive product list, including a redacted management analysis; • Attachment B—an application for nonpublic treatment of Governors’ Decision No. 11–6; • Attachment C—a Statement of Supporting Justification as required by 39 CFR 3020.32; and • Attachment D—proposed changes to the Mail Classification Schedule (MCS) competitive product list. The Postal Service seeks to remove Global Direct Contracts from the competitive product list due to the absence of customer demand for this service. Request at 1. The Postal Service asserts that removal of Global Direct Contracts is an attempt to align its service offerings with current customer needs and preferences. Id. at 2. In addition, in the Statement of Supporting Justification, Giselle E. Valera, Vice President and Managing Director of Global Business, asserts that because the Postal Service is requesting product removal, the product’s ability to cover its own costs has no impact on the instant Request. Id. Attachment C at 2. Ms. Valera maintains that removal of the product from the competitive product list attempts to ensure that there will be no issue of market dominant products subsidizing competitive products.
