Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Information Collection Requirement tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES OMB Number 1652–0032; Security Officer Medical Questionnaire TSA currently collects relevant medical information from TSO candidates who successfully complete the steps in the hiring process leading up to the medical portion. This information is used to assess whether the candidates meet the medical qualification standards the agency has established pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 44935. TSA collects this information through a medical questionnaire completed by TSO candidates and, in certain cases, supplemental forms completed by TSO candidates’ health care providers. The medical questionnaire and supplemental forms are used to evaluate a candidate’s physical and medical qualifications to be a TSO, including visual and aural acuity, and physical coordination and motor skills. Candidates who disclose certain medical conditions on the medical questionnaire may be asked to have their health care provider complete one or more supplemental forms. These supplemental forms pertain to particular body systems and medical conditions, including cardiac, orthopedic, endocrine, and vital signs; the type of supplemental form(s) completed by a candidate’s health care provider depend(s) on the condition(s) revealed during a candidate’s initial medical evaluation and disclosed on the initial VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:15 Nov 24, 2015 Jkt 238001 medical questionnaire. For example, a candidate who discloses a previous back injury may be asked to have his/her health care provider complete a supplemental form to enable the agency to better evaluate whether the candidate can perform the TSO job safely and efficiently without substantial risk of accident or injury to himself/herself or others. Historical data indicates that on average 17,480 candidates for TSO positions annually complete initial medical exams at the 3,000 health care provider clinics/facilities nationwide provided by TSA, at no cost to the candidates. The initial medical exam form takes approximately 45 minutes (0.75 hours) for the candidates to complete, resulting in an estimated burden of 13,110 hours (17,480 × 0.75 hours). Also, the initial exam form takes an estimated 5 minutes (0.083 hours) for the health care providers to complete, resulting in an estimated burden of 1,451 hours (17,480 × 0.083 hours). The estimated total burden time for the completion of the initial medical exam form is 14,561 annual hours (13,110 hours + 1,451 hours). The estimated total respondents for the completion of the initial examination is 20,480. Of these 17,480 initial medical exams, approximately 55 percent of those reaching the medical evaluation will be requested to complete one additional supplemental evaluation form. This yields an additional estimated 9,614 candidates (55% × 17,480) required to complete one further evaluation (FE) form. It is estimated that completing the FE form will take the candidates 5 minutes (0.083 hours), resulting in an estimated 798 hours (9,614 × 0.083 hours). The FE form will also need to be completed by the candidates’ health care providers. It is estimated that it will take 9,614 health care providers an estimated 5 minutes (0.083 hours) to review and complete, resulting in an estimated burden of 798 hours (9,614 × 0.083 hours). Therefore, to complete the first FE form, the estimated total burden is 1,596 annual hours (798 hours + 798 hours) and the estimated total respondents are 19,228 (9,614 candidates + 9,614 health care providers). In addition, of the 9,614 applicants required to complete a FE form, TSA estimates that 20 percent of them will need to complete a second FE form. Thus, 1,923 candidates (20% × 9,614) will complete a second FE form. It is estimated that completing a second FE form will take the candidate 5 minutes (0.083 hours), resulting in a total of 160 hours (1,923 × 0.083 hours). The second FE form will also need to be completed PO 00000 Frm 00110 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 73807 by the candidates’ health care providers. It is estimated that it will take 1,923 health care providers 5 minutes (0.083 hours) to complete the second FE form, resulting in an estimated burden of 160 hours (1,923 × 0.083 hours). Therefore, the estimated total hour burden for completing the second FE forms is 320 annual hours (160 hours + 160 hours) and the estimated total respondents are 3,846 (1,923 TSO candidates + 1,923 health care providers). Therefore, the total estimated annual number of respondents for this collection will be 58,032 (29,016 TSO candidates (17,480 initial exam forms + 9,614 first FE exam forms + 1,922 second FE exam forms) plus 14,536 health care providers (3,000 initial exam forms + 9,614 first FE exam forms + 1,922 second FE exam forms)). The total estimated annual hour burden for completing the initial medical exam and the FE forms will be 16,477 hours (14,561 initial exam forms + 1,596 first FE forms + 320 second FE forms).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it 
displays a valid OMB control number. Therefore, in preparation for OMB 
review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is 
soliciting comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, 
mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms 
of information technology.

Information Collection Requirement

OMB Number 1652-0032; Security Officer Medical Questionnaire

    TSA currently collects relevant medical information from TSO 
candidates who successfully complete the steps in the hiring process 
leading up to the medical portion. This information is used to assess 
whether the candidates meet the medical qualification standards the 
agency has established pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 44935. TSA collects this 
information through a medical questionnaire completed by TSO candidates 
and, in certain cases, supplemental forms completed by TSO candidates' 
health care providers. The medical questionnaire and supplemental forms 
are used to evaluate a candidate's physical and medical qualifications 
to be a TSO, including visual and aural acuity, and physical 
coordination and motor skills.
    Candidates who disclose certain medical conditions on the medical 
questionnaire may be asked to have their health care provider complete 
one or more supplemental forms. These supplemental forms pertain to 
particular body systems and medical conditions, including cardiac, 
orthopedic, endocrine, and vital signs; the type of supplemental 
form(s) completed by a candidate's health care provider depend(s) on 
the condition(s) revealed during a candidate's initial medical 
evaluation and disclosed on the initial medical questionnaire. For 
example, a candidate who discloses a previous back injury may be asked 
to have his/her health care provider complete a supplemental form to 
enable the agency to better evaluate whether the candidate can perform 
the TSO job safely and efficiently without substantial risk of accident 
or injury to himself/herself or others.
    Historical data indicates that on average 17,480 candidates for TSO 
positions annually complete initial medical exams at the 3,000 health 
care provider clinics/facilities nationwide provided by TSA, at no cost 
to the candidates. The initial medical exam form takes approximately 45 
minutes (0.75 hours) for the candidates to complete, resulting in an 
estimated burden of 13,110 hours (17,480 x 0.75 hours). Also, the 
initial exam form takes an estimated 5 minutes (0.083 hours) for the 
health care providers to complete, resulting in an estimated burden of 
1,451 hours (17,480 x 0.083 hours). The estimated total burden time for 
the completion of the initial medical exam form is 14,561 annual hours 
(13,110 hours + 1,451 hours). The estimated total respondents for the 
completion of the initial examination is 20,480.
    Of these 17,480 initial medical exams, approximately 55 percent of 
those reaching the medical evaluation will be requested to complete one 
additional supplemental evaluation form. This yields an additional 
estimated 9,614 candidates (55% x 17,480) required to complete one 
further evaluation (FE) form. It is estimated that completing the FE 
form will take the candidates 5 minutes (0.083 hours), resulting in an 
estimated 798 hours (9,614 x 0.083 hours). The FE form will also need 
to be completed by the candidates' health care providers. It is 
estimated that it will take 9,614 health care providers an estimated 5 
minutes (0.083 hours) to review and complete, resulting in an estimated 
burden of 798 hours (9,614 x 0.083 hours). Therefore, to complete the 
first FE form, the estimated total burden is 1,596 annual hours (798 
hours + 798 hours) and the estimated total respondents are 19,228 
(9,614 candidates + 9,614 health care providers).
    In addition, of the 9,614 applicants required to complete a FE 
form, TSA estimates that 20 percent of them will need to complete a 
second FE form. Thus, 1,923 candidates (20% x 9,614) will complete a 
second FE form. It is estimated that completing a second FE form will 
take the candidate 5 minutes (0.083 hours), resulting in a total of 160 
hours (1,923 x 0.083 hours). The second FE form will also need to be 
completed by the candidates' health care providers. It is estimated 
that it will take 1,923 health care providers 5 minutes (0.083 hours) 
to complete the second FE form, resulting in an estimated burden of 160 
hours (1,923 x 0.083 hours). Therefore, the estimated total hour burden 
for completing the second FE forms is 320 annual hours (160 hours + 160 
hours) and the estimated total respondents are 3,846 (1,923 TSO 
candidates + 1,923 health care providers).
    Therefore, the total estimated annual number of respondents for 
this collection will be 58,032 (29,016 TSO candidates (17,480 initial 
exam forms + 9,614 first FE exam forms + 1,922 second FE exam forms) 
plus 14,536 health care providers (3,000 initial exam forms + 9,614 
first FE exam forms + 1,922 second FE exam forms)). The total estimated 
annual hour burden for completing the initial medical exam and the FE 
forms will be 16,477 hours (14,561 initial exam forms + 1,596 first FE 
forms + 320 second FE forms).
