Abstract Regulations at 36 CFR 2.1 and 2.5 provide for taking of scientific research specimens in parks. We use a permit system to manage scientific research and collecting. National Park Service Forms 10–741a (Application for a Scientific Research and Collecting Permit) and 10–741b (Application for a Science Education Permit) collect information from persons seeking a permit to conduct natural or social science research and collection activities in individual units of the National Park System. The information we collect includes, but is not limited to: • Names and business contact information. • Project title, purpose of study, summary of proposed field methods and activities, and study and field schedules. • Location where scientific activities are proposed to take place, including method of access. • Whether or not specimens are proposed to be collected or handled, and if yes, scientific descriptions and proposed disposition of specimens. • If specimens are to be permanently retained, the proposed repositories for those specimens. Persons who receive a permit must report annually on the activities conducted under the permit. Form 10– 226 (Investigator’s Annual Report) collects the following information: • Reporting year, park, and type of permit. • Names and business contact information and names of additional investigators. • Project title, park-assigned study or activity number, park-assigned permit Number of respondents Activity Number of annual responses 62175 number, permit start and expiration dates, and scientific study start and ending dates. • Activity type, subject discipline, purpose of study/activity during the reporting year, and finding and status of study or accomplishments of education activity during the reporting year. We use the above information to manage the use and preservation of park resources and for reporting to the public via the Internet about the status of permitted research and collecting activities. We encourage respondents to use the Internet-based, automated Research Permit and Reporting System (RPRS) to complete and submit applications and reports. For those who use RPRS, much of the information needed for the annual report is generated automatically through information supplied in the application or contained in the permit.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    Regulations at 36 CFR 2.1 and 2.5 provide for taking of scientific 
research specimens in parks. We use a permit system to manage 
scientific research and collecting. National Park Service Forms 10-741a 
(Application for a Scientific Research and Collecting Permit) and 10-
741b (Application for a Science Education Permit) collect information 
from persons seeking a permit to conduct natural or social science 
research and collection activities in individual units of the National 
Park System. The information we collect includes, but is not limited 
to:
     Names and business contact information.
     Project title, purpose of study, summary of proposed field 
methods and activities, and study and field schedules.
     Location where scientific activities are proposed to take 
place, including method of access.
     Whether or not specimens are proposed to be collected or 
handled, and if yes, scientific descriptions and proposed disposition 
of specimens.
     If specimens are to be permanently retained, the proposed 
repositories for those specimens.
    Persons who receive a permit must report annually on the activities 
conducted under the permit. Form 10-226 (Investigator's Annual Report) 
collects the following information:
     Reporting year, park, and type of permit.
     Names and business contact information and names of 
additional investigators.
     Project title, park-assigned study or activity number, 
park-assigned permit number, permit start and expiration dates, and 
scientific study start and ending dates.
     Activity type, subject discipline, purpose of study/
activity during the reporting year, and finding and status of study or 
accomplishments of education activity during the reporting year.
    We use the above information to manage the use and preservation of 
park resources and for reporting to the public via the Internet about 
the status of permitted research and collecting activities. We 
encourage respondents to use the Internet-based, automated Research 
Permit and Reporting System (RPRS) to complete and submit applications 
and reports. For those who use RPRS, much of the information needed for 
the annual report is generated automatically through information 
supplied in the application or contained in the permit.
    You may obtain additional information about the application and 
reporting forms and existing guidance and explanatory material by 
clicking on ``Help'' at the RPRS Web site (https://irma.nps.gov/RPRS/).
