BILLING CODE P BILLING CODE 4510–29–P NATIONAL SCIENCE FOUNDATION OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET Revision of OMB Circular No. A–130, ‘‘Managing Information as a Strategic Resource’’ Office of Management and Budget, Executive Office of the President. AGENCY: ACTION: Notice of availability. The Office of Management and Budget (OMB) has revised Circular A–130, ‘‘Managing Information as a Strategic Resource,’’ to reflect changes in law and advances in technology. The revisions also ensure consistency with executive orders, presidential directives, recent OMB policy, and National Institute of Standards and Technology standards and guidelines. The Circular establishes general policy for information governance, acquisitions, records management, open data, workforce, security, and privacy. It also emphasizes the role of both privacy and security in the Federal information life cycle. Importantly, it represents a shift from viewing security and privacy requirements as compliance exercises to understanding security and privacy as crucial elements of a comprehensive, strategic, and continuous risk-based program at Federal agencies. When implemented by agencies, these revisions to the Circular will promote innovation, enable appropriate information sharing, and foster the wide-scale and rapid adoption of new technologies while strengthening protections for security and privacy. SUMMARY: Effective Upon Publication As of July 28, 2016 OMB is making revised Circular A–130 available to the public. Circular is available at https:// www.whitehouse.gov/omb/circulars_ default/. Rescission: This Circular rescinds OMB Memoranda M–10–28, ‘‘Clarifying Cybersecurity Responsibilities and Activities of the Executive Office of the President and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS).’’ DATES: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Carol Bales, Office of Management and Budget, Office of the Federal Chief PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Notice of Intent To Seek Approval To Extend a Current Information Collection National Science Foundation.

Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to renew an information collection for three years. Abstract: The National Survey of College Graduates (NSCG) has been conducted biennially since the 1970s. The 2017 NSCG sample will be selected from the 2015 American Community Survey (ACS) and the 2015 NSCG. By selecting sample from these two sources, the 2017 NSCG will provide coverage of the college graduate population residing in the United States. The purpose of this longitudinal survey is to collect data that will be used to provide national estimates on the science and engineering workforce and changes in their employment, education, and demographic characteristics. The National Science Foundation Act of 1950, as subsequently amended, includes a statutory charge to ‘‘. . . provide a central clearinghouse for the collection, interpretation, and analysis of data on scientific and engineering resources, and to provide a source of information for policy formulation by other agencies of the Federal Government.’’ The NSCG is designed to comply with these mandates by providing information on the supply and utilization of the nation’s scientists and engineers. The U.S. Census Bureau, as in the past, will conduct the NSCG for NSF. The survey data collection will begin in February 2017 using web and mail questionnaires. Nonrespondents to the web or mail questionnaire will be followed up by computer-assisted telephone interviewing. The individual’s response to the survey is voluntary. The survey will be conducted in conformance with Census Bureau statistical quality standards and, as such, the NSCG data will be afforded protection under the applicable Census Bureau confidentiality statues. Use of the Information: The NSF uses the information from the NSCG to prepare congressionally mandated reports such as Women, Minorities and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering and Science and Engineering Indicators. A public release file of collected data, designed to protect respondent confidentiality, will be made available to researchers on the Internet. VerDate Sep<11>2014 14:44 Jul 27, 2016 Jkt 238001 Expected Respondents: A statistical sample of approximately 118,000 individuals will be contacted in 2017. NSF expects the response rate to be 70 to 80 percent. Estimate of Burden: The amount of time to complete the questionnaire may vary depending on an individual’s circumstances; however, on average it will take approximately 30 minutes to complete the survey. NSF estimates that the total annual burden will be no more than 47,200 hours (= 118,000 respondents × 80% response × 30 minutes) during the 2017 survey cycle. Dated: July 25, 2016. Suzanne H.

    Title of Collection: 2017 National Survey of College Graduates.
    OMB Approval Number: 3145-0141.
    Expiration Date of Approval: May 31, 2018.
    Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to renew an information 
collection for three years.
    Abstract: The National Survey of College Graduates (NSCG) has been 
conducted biennially since the 1970s. The 2017 NSCG sample will be 
selected from the 2015 American Community Survey (ACS) and the 2015 
NSCG. By selecting sample from these two sources, the 2017 NSCG will 
provide coverage of the college graduate population residing in the 
United States. The purpose of this longitudinal survey is to collect 
data that will be used to provide national estimates on the science and 
engineering workforce and changes in their employment, education, and 
demographic characteristics.
    The National Science Foundation Act of 1950, as subsequently 
amended, includes a statutory charge to ``. . . provide a central 
clearinghouse for the collection, interpretation, and analysis of data 
on scientific and engineering resources, and to provide a source of 
information for policy formulation by other agencies of the Federal 
Government.'' The NSCG is designed to comply with these mandates by 
providing information on the supply and utilization of the nation's 
scientists and engineers.
    The U.S. Census Bureau, as in the past, will conduct the NSCG for 
NSF. The survey data collection will begin in February 2017 using web 
and mail questionnaires. Nonrespondents to the web or mail 
questionnaire will be followed up by computer-assisted telephone 
interviewing. The individual's response to the survey is voluntary. The 
survey will be conducted in conformance with Census Bureau statistical 
quality standards and, as such, the NSCG data will be afforded 
protection under the applicable Census Bureau confidentiality statues.
    Use of the Information: The NSF uses the information from the NSCG 
to prepare congressionally mandated reports such as Women, Minorities 
and Persons with Disabilities in Science and Engineering and Science 
and Engineering Indicators. A public release file of collected data, 
designed to protect respondent confidentiality, will be made available 
to researchers on the Internet.
    Expected Respondents: A statistical sample of approximately 118,000 
individuals will be contacted in 2017. NSF expects the response rate to 
be 70 to 80 percent.
    Estimate of Burden: The amount of time to complete the 
questionnaire may vary depending on an individual's circumstances; 
however, on average it will take approximately 30 minutes to complete 
the survey. NSF estimates that the total annual burden will be no more 
than 47,200 hours (= 118,000 respondents x 80% response x 30 minutes) 
during the 2017 survey cycle.
