ACTION: The General Services Administration’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 per diem reimbursement rates review has resulted in lodging and meal allowance changes for certain locations within CONUS to provide for reimbursement of Federal employees’ subsistence expenses while on official travel. SUMMARY: mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES DATES: Effective: August 17, 2016. Applicability: This notice applies to travel performed on or after October 1, 2016, through September 30, 2017. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For clarification of content, contact Ms. Jill Denning, Program Analyst, Office of Government-wide Policy, Office of Asset and Transportation Management, at 202–208–7642, or by email at travelpolicy@gsa.gov. Please cite Notice of GSA Per Diem Bulletin FTR 17–01. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The CONUS per diem reimbursement rates prescribed in Bulletin 17–01 may be found at www.gsa.gov/perdiem. GSA bases the maximum lodging allowance rates on the average daily rate that the lodging industry reports to an independent organization. If a maximum lodging allowance rate, and/or a meals and incidental expenses (M&IE) per diem reimbursement rate, is insufficient to meet necessary expenses in any given location, Federal executive agencies can request that GSA review that location. Please review numbers six and seven of GSA’s per diem Frequently Asked Questions at (www.gsa.gov/perdiemfaqs) for more information on the special review process. In addition, the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) allows for actual expense reimbursement as provided in §§ 301–11.300 through 301– 11.306. For FY2017, no new nonstandard area locations were added. The standard CONUS lodging allowance rate will increase from $89 to $91. The M&IE reimbursement rate tiers were not revised for FY2017. GSA issues and publishes the CONUS per diem rates, formerly published in Appendix A to 41 CFR Chapter 301, solely on the Internet at www.gsa.gov/perdiem. GSA also now solely publishes the M&IE meal breakdown table, which is used when employees are required to deduct meals from their M&IE reimbursement pursuant to FTR § 301– 11.18, at www.gsa.gov/mie. This process, implemented in 2003 for per diem reimbursement rates, and in 2015 VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:39 Aug 16, 2016 Jkt 238001 for the M&IE breakdown table, ensures more timely changes in per diem reimbursement rates established by GSA for Federal employees on official travel within CONUS. Notices published periodically in the Federal Register, such as this one, now constitute the only notification of revisions in CONUS per diem reimbursement rates to agencies, other than the changes posted on the GSA Web site. of the information collection plan and instruments, call (404) 639–7570 or send an email to omb@cdc.gov.

Proposed Project

    Importation of Etiologic Agents (42 CFR 71.54) (OMB Control No. 
0920-0199, exp. 1/31/2017)--Extension--Office of Public Health 
Preparedness and Response (OPHPR), Centers for Disease Control and 
Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

    Section 361 of the Public Health Service Act (42 U.S.C. 264), as 
amended, authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services to make 
and enforce such regulations as are necessary to prevent the 
introduction, transmission, or spread of communicable diseases from 
foreign countries into the States or possessions, or from one State or 
possession into any other State or possession. Part 71 of Title 42, 
Code of Federal Regulations (Foreign Quarantine) sets forth provisions 
to prevent the introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable 
disease from foreign countries into the United States. Subpart F--
Importations--contains provisions for the importation of infectious 
biological agents, infectious substances, and vectors (42 CFR 71.54); 
requiring persons that import these materials to obtain a permit issued 
by the CDC.
    CDC requests Office of Management and Budget approval to collect 
information for three years using the Application for Permit to Import 
Biological Agents, Infectious Substances and Vectors of Human Disease 
into the United States and Application for a Permit to Import or 
Transport Live Bats. We are also requesting a title change to read--
Application for Permit to Import Infectious Biological Agents into the 
United States.
    The Application for Permit to Import Biological Agents, Infectious 
Substances and Vectors of Human Disease into the United States form is 
used by laboratory facilities, such as those operated by government 
agencies, universities, and research institutions to request a permit 
for the importation of biological agents, infectious substances, or 
vectors of human disease. This form currently requests applicant and 
sender contact information; description of material for

importation; facility isolation and containment information; and 
personnel qualifications. CDC plans to make no changes to this 
application.
    The Application for Permit to Import or Transport Live Bats form is 
used by laboratory facilities such as those operated by government 
agencies, universities, research institutions, and for educational, 
exhibition, or scientific purposes to request a permit for the 
importation, and any subsequent distribution after importation, of live 
bats. This form currently requests the applicant and sender contact 
information; a description and intended use of bats to be imported; and 
facility isolation and containment information. CDC plans to make no 
changes to this application.
    Estimates of burden for the survey are based on information 
obtained from the CDC import permit database on the number of permits 
issued on annual basis since 2010. The total estimated burden for the 
one-time data collection is 545 hours. There are no costs to 
respondents except their time.
