Sunshine Act Meeting, 59180-59181 [2016-20867]

Download as PDF 59180 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 167 / Monday, August 29, 2016 / Notices effectiveness of a peer counselor program; (3) the extent to which the agency or clinic has partnered with other entities to build a supportive breastfeeding environment for women participating in WIC; and (4) other criteria the Secretary considers appropriate after consultation with State and local program agencies. The information will be submitted voluntarily by WIC local agencies who will be applying for an award. FNS will use the information collected to evaluate the components of existing breastfeeding programs and support in WIC local agencies and make decisions about awards. This program is expected to provide models and motivate other local agencies and clinics to strengthen their breastfeeding promotion and support activities. Applications will be submitted online. Affected Public: State, Local, Territories and Tribal Government. Respondent groups identified include the WIC local agencies who are applying for the award and the WIC State agencies who evaluate the applications. Estimated Number of Respondents: The total estimated number of participants is 453: 363 local WIC agencies and 90 State WIC agencies. A recent FNS study on WIC Breastfeeding Peer Counseling found that approximately two thirds of the local WIC agencies operate a ‘‘Loving Support Program.’’ The Loving Support Program is an FNS initiative that equips WIC programs with an implementation and management model—the ‘‘Loving Support Model’’—that serves as a framework for designing, building, and sustaining peer counseling programs; a requirement for award eligibility. Based on the findings of the study, it is estimated that approximately 1,210 of the 1,834 WIC local agencies will be eligible to apply for an award. Although the number of local agencies operating a Loving Support Program has increased, an average of only 16.4% of eligible respondents have applied over the past two years. In Fiscal Year (FY) 2014, 77 out of 607 eligible local agencies applied for an award (12.7%) and in FY 2015, 123 out of 607 eligible local agencies applied for an award (20.3%). Therefore, unlike the previous information collection request, the estimated number of respondents for local agency applications will not assume all eligible local WIC agencies will apply for an award. To better reflect the estimated number of respondents for subsequent years, FNS estimates that 30% (363) of eligible local agencies will respond annually. This reduces the total number of burden hours for the local WIC agencies from 1,214 to 907.5 hours. The estimated number of respondents for the State agency application evaluation is derived from the total number of State WIC agencies. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: The estimated number of responses per respondent for the WIC local agency is one, as each eligible WIC local agency will submit one application. The estimated number of responses per respondent for the WIC State agency is 4.03, as each WIC State agency will evaluate approximately four Estimated number of respondent Respondent Responses annually per respondent applications annually. The estimated number of responses per respondent for the WIC State agency application evaluation was derived by dividing the total number of respondents for the WIC local agency applications, 363, by the total number of WIC State agencies, 90. FNS estimates that the overall responses per respondent for the entire collection is 1.60, which was derived by dividing the number of total annual responses 725.7, by the estimated number of respondents, 453. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 725.7. Estimated Time per Response: FNS estimates the WIC local agency application response is 2.5 hours, and the WIC State agency response is 1.5 hours. The overall response for the entire collection is 2.0 hours, which was derived by dividing the number of estimated total hours, 1,451.6, by the number of total annual responses by all respondents, 725.7. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 1,451.6 hours. The time for the WIC local agency is an estimated time for the agency to voluntarily review the instructions, fill out the ‘‘Loving Support Award of Excellence’’ application, and attach supportive documentation. The time for the State WIC agency is an estimated time for the agency to review the instructions, evaluate the components of the local WIC agencies applications, and make a recommendation for an award.

SUMMARY: SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: BILLING CODE 6350–01–P Background Under the authority of the Strategic and Critical Materials Stock Piling Revision Act of 1979, as amended (the Stock Piling Act) (50 U.S.C. 98, et seq.), VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:27 Aug 26, 2016 Jkt 238001 PO 00000 Frm 00004 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59181 the Department of Defense’s Defense Logistics Agency (DLA), as National Defense Stockpile Manager, maintains a stockpile of strategic and critical materials to supply the military, industrial, and essential civilian needs of the United States for national defense. Section 9(b)(2)(G)(ii) of the Stock Piling Act (50 U.S.C. 98(h)(b)(2)(G)(ii)) authorizes the National Defense Stockpile Manager to fund material research and development projects to develop new materials for the stockpile. Section 3314 of the Fiscal Year (FY) 1993 National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) (50 U.S.C. 98h–1) formally established a Market Impact Committee (the Committee) to ‘‘advise the National Defense Stockpile Manager on the projected domestic and foreign economic effects of all acquisitions and disposals of materials from the stockpile. . . .’’ The Committee must also balance market impact concerns with the statutory requirement to protect the U.S. Government against avoidable loss. The Committee is comprised of representatives from the Departments of Commerce, State, Agriculture, Defense, Energy, Interior, the Treasury, and Homeland Security, and is co-chaired by the Departments of Commerce and State. The FY 1993 NDAA directs the Committee to consult with industry representatives that produce, process, or consume the materials stored in or of interest to the National Defense Stockpile Manager. As the National Defense Stockpile Manager, the DLA must produce an Annual Materials Plan proposing the maximum quantity of each listed material that may be acquired, disposed of, upgraded, converted, or sold by the DLA in a particular fiscal year. In Attachment 1, the DLA lists the quantities and type of activity (potential acquisition, potential disposal, potential upgrade, potential conversion, or potential sale) associated with each material in its proposed FY 2018 Annual Materials Plan (‘‘AMP’’). The quantities listed in Attachment 1 are not acquisition, disposal, upgrade, conversion or sales target quantities, but rather a statement of the proposed maximum quantity of each listed material that may be acquired, disposed of, upgraded, converted, or sold in a particular fiscal year by the DLA, as noted. The quantity of each material that will actually be acquired or offered for sale will depend on the market for the material at the time of the acquisition or offering, as well as on the quantity of each material approved for E:\FR\FM\29AUN1.SGM 29AUN1
