Type: Notice

Agency: Department of Health and Human Services, National Institutes of Health
In compliance with the requirement of Section 3506(c)(2)(A) of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, for opportunity for public comment on proposed data collection projects, the National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH), will publish periodic summaries of proposed projects to be submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval. Written comments and/or suggestions from the public and affected agencies are invited on one or more of the following points: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the function of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Ways to 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. To Submit Comments and For Further Information: To obtain a copy of the data collection plans and instruments, submit comments in writing, or request more information on the proposed project, contact: David Sharlip, NLM Project Clearance Liaison, Office of Administrative and Management Analysis Services, OAMAS, NLM, NIH, Building 38A, Room B2N12, 8600 Rockville Pike, Bethesda, MD 20894, or call non-toll-free number (301) 496-5441, or Email your request, including your address to: sharlipd@mail.nih.gov. Formal requests for additional plans and instruments must be requested in writing. Comment Due Date: Comments regarding this information collection are best assured of having their full effect if received within 60 days of the date of this publication. Proposed Collection: NLM People Locator System 0925-0612, Expiration Date: 07/31/2016, EXTENSION, National Library of Medicine (NLM), National Institutes of Health (NIH). Need and Use of Information Collection: This collection of data is intended to assist in the reunification of family members and friends who are separated during a disaster. Experience in operational drills and during real-world disasters such as the January 2010 earthquakes in Haiti demonstrates that family members and loved ones are often separated during disasters and have significant difficulty determining each other's safety, condition, and location. Reunification can not only improve their emotional well-being during the recovery period, but also improve the chances that injured victims will be cared for once they are released from urgent medical care. Family and friends are also a valuable source of medical information that may be important to the care of injured victims (e.g., by providing family or personal medical history, information about allergies). The National Library of Medicine (NLM) aims to assist Federal, State and Local agencies in disaster relief efforts and to serve its mission of supporting national efforts to the response to disasters via the PEOPLE LOCATOR[supreg] system and related mobile app (ReUniteTM) developed as part of the intramural Lost Person Finder (LPF) R&D project. The information collection would support efforts to reunite family and friends who are separated during a disaster. Information about missing (``lost'') people would be collected from family members or loved ones who are searching for them. Information about recovered (``found'') people could be provided by medical personnel, volunteers and other relief workers assisting in the disaster recovery effort. Information collected about missing and recovered persons would vary including any one of the following and possibly all: A photograph, name (if available for a found person), age group (child, adult) and/or range, gender, status (alive and well, injured, deceased, unknown), and location. The information collection would be voluntary. It would be activated only during times of declared emergencies, training and demonstration support activities, and would operate in declared emergencies until relief efforts have ceased in response to a particular disaster. This data collection is authorized pursuant to sections 301, 307, 465 and 478A of the Public Health Service Act [42 U.S.C. 241, 242l, 286 and 286d]. NLM has in its mission the development and coordination of communication technology to improve the delivery of health services. OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 7,500.

Need and Use of Information Collection: This is a revision request (OMB number 0925-0664, expiration date 8/31/2018) for the Population Assessment of Tobacco and Health (PATH) Study to conduct the fourth wave of data collection. The PATH Study is a large national longitudinal cohort study on tobacco use behavior and health among the U.S. household population of adults age 18 and older and youth ages 12 to 17. On an annual basis, the PATH Study conducts interviews with and collects biospecimens from adults and youth to help inform the development, implementation, and evaluation of tobacco-product regulations by FDA in meeting its mission under the Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (TCA) to regulate tobacco products, including tobacco-product advertising, labeling, marketing, constituents, ingredients, and additives. The longitudinal design of the PATH Study provides it with the capacity to measure and report within-person changes and between-person differences in tobacco product use behaviors and health effects within the cohort over time. These data will help to inform regulatory decisions and actions by FDA and FDA's evaluations of associations between its regulations and tobacco use behaviors and health indicators in the population. OMB approval is requested for 3 years. There are no costs to respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden hours are 105,079.

Agency: Government Accountability Office, Agencies and Commissions
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) is proposing to amend its Bid Protest Regulations, promulgated in accordance with the Competition in Contracting Act of 1984 (CICA), to implement the requirements in sec. 1501 of the Consolidated Appropriations Act for Fiscal Year 2014, which was enacted on January 14, 2014, and to make certain administrative changes.

The proposed amendments also include administrative changes to reflect current practice and to streamline the bid protest process.

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is notifying the public that the Agency has found that the motor vehicle emissions budgets (MVEBs or ``budgets'') for the years 2014 and 2017 in the San Joaquin Valley Moderate Area Plan, as revised in a December 29, 2014 submittal, for the 2006 24-hour fine particulate (PM2.5) national ambient air quality standards (NAAQS) are adequate for transportation conformity purposes. The Moderate Area Plan was submitted to the EPA on March 4, 2013 by the California Air Resources Board (CARB) as a revision to the California State Implementation Plan (SIP) and includes a demonstration of reasonable further progress for the 2006 PM2.5 NAAQS. CARB submitted a Supplement to the Moderate Area Plan on November 6, 2014 (``2014 Supplement'') and a revision to the budgets on December 29, 2014. We refer to these submittals collectively as the ``2012 PM2.5 Plan'' or ``Plan.'' Upon the effective date of this notice of adequacy, the San Joaquin Valley metropolitan planning organizations (MPO) and the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) must use these budgets for future transportation conformity determinations.
