Charter Renewal of Department of Defense Federal Advisory Committees, 40679 [2016-14733]

Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 120 / Wednesday, June 22, 2016 / Notices mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES burden hours associated with the NEISS information collection, we have added those hours to the collection of information. The increase in burden hours also includes the increase associated with offering internet-based questionnaires in addition to in-person and telephone interviews. This information collection request excludes the burden associated with other publicly available Consumer Product Safety Information Databases, such as internet complaints, Hotline, and Medical Examiners and Coroners Alert Project (‘‘MECAP’’) reports, which are approved under OMB control number 3041–0146. This information collection request also excludes the burden associated with follow-up investigations conducted by other federal agencies. The annual cost to the government of the collection of the NEISS information is estimated to be about $4.9 million a year. This estimate includes $3.3 million in compensation to NEISS respondents described in section 12(a) above. This estimate also includes $1.603 million for about 150 CPSC professional staff months each year. The estimate of professional staff months includes the time required to: Oversee NEISS operations (e.g., administration, training, quality control); prepare questionnaires, interviewer guidelines, and other instruments and instructions used to collect the information; conduct face-to-face and telephone interviews; and evaluate responses obtained from interviews and completed forms. Each month of professional staff time costs the Commission about $10,683.83. This is based on a GS–12 mid-level salaried employee. The average yearly wage rate for a mid-level salaried GS–12 employee in the Washington, DC metropolitan area (effective as of January 2016) is $87,821 (GS–12, step 5). This represents 68.5 percent of total compensation (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, ‘‘Employer Costs for Employee Compensation,’’ March 2016, Table 1, percentage of wages and salaries for all civilian management, professional, and related employees: http://www.bls.gov/ncs/). Adding an additional 31.5 percent for benefits brings average yearly compensation for a mid-level salaried GS–12 employee to $128,206. D. Request for Comments The Commission solicits written comments from all interested persons about the proposed collection of information. The Commission specifically solicits information relevant to the following topics: • Whether the collection of information described above is VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:02 Jun 21, 2016 Jkt 238001 necessary for the proper performance of the Commission’s functions, including whether the information would have practical utility; • Whether the estimated burden of the proposed collection of information is accurate; • Whether the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected could be enhanced; and • Whether the burden imposed by the collection of information could be minimized by use of automated, electronic or other technological collection techniques, or other forms of information technology.
