Download as PDF 14472 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 52 / Thursday, March 17, 2016 / Notices asabaliauskas on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES transportation security and an appropriate level of need to access transportation security information– such as, regulated parties and other industry stakeholders, Federal agencies, and state and local governments. This system also integrates other securityrelated information and communications at the sensitive security information (SSI) level. It is located in a secure online environment and is accessible from the Homeland Security Information Network (HSIN) and TSA (for TSA staff only). It disseminates mission-critical information to users inside and outside of the TSA organization. It provides an online portal allowing authorized users to obtain, post, and exchange information, access common resources, and communicate with similarly situated individuals. TSA infoBoards are primarily used for disseminating TSA mission-critical information, such as Security Directives (SD), compliance status, policy updates, and watch lists; however, some groups of stakeholders utilize infoBoards for collaboration and to upload transportation security information. InfoBoards allow stakeholders to filter alerts and information based on their particular needs, such as their regulated areas of operation or their treaty relationship for foreign government staff. TSA intends TSA infoBoards to be used primarily by individuals with transportation security responsibilities, such as aircraft operators, airport security coordinators, and international transportation security coordinators. These individuals can voluntarily contact TSA to request access to TSA infoBoards; TSA does not require participation in TSA infoBoards. Description of Data Collection TSA will collect two types of information through TSA infoBoards. The collection is voluntary. TSA infoBoards users are not required to provide all information requested, but users who choose to withhold information will not receive the benefits of TSA infoBoards associated with that information collection. 1. User registration information. TSA will collect this information to ensure only those members of the transportation community with a relevant interest in transportation security and with an appropriate level of need to access transportation security information can be allowed onto TSA infoBoards. Such registration information will include the user’s name, professional contact information, agency/company, job title, employer, VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:03 Mar 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 airport (optional), citizenship, regulatory interest, and employment verification contact information. 2. User’s choice of infoBoards. TSA will collect this information to select TSA infoBoards community(ies) appropriate for the particular user. Users are asked to submit their transportation security interest(s) and desired infoBoard(s) (to assess the user’s qualifications and needs together with the user registration information). Use of Results TSA will use this information to assess and improve the capabilities of all transportation modes to prevent, prepare for, mitigate against, respond to, and recover from transportation security incidents. A failure to collect this information will limit TSA’s ability to effectively enable modal operators to respond to, and quickly recover after, a transportation security incident. Insufficient awareness, prevention, response, and recovery to a transportation security incident will result in increased vulnerability of the U.S. transportation network. Based on industry population estimates and growth rates, and interest generated amongst the transportation modes prior to TSA infoBoards’ release to the public, TSA estimates that there will be approximately 10,000 users within the first three years of the system’s use. TSA estimates users will spend approximately 1 hour per TSA infoBoards user inputting the information described above. Given this information, the total annual hour burden for this information collection for all respondents within the first three years of TSA infoBoards’ release is estimated to be approximately 30,000 hours. There are no fees to use TSA infoBoards. Dated: March 10, 2016. Christina A. Walsh, TSA Paperwork Reduction Act Officer, Office of Information Technology.
