NASA Advisory Council; Science Committee; Astrophysics Subcommittee; Meeting, 62924-62925 [2016-21981]

Download as PDF 62924 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 177 / Tuesday, September 13, 2016 / Notices conducting a series of 8 to 20 separate surveys over the next 3 years. Each survey will be short (typically 10–30 questions) and, depending on the nature of the survey, may be administered to state workforce agencies, local workforce boards, American Job Centers, employment service offices, or other entities involved in employment and training or related activities. Each survey will be designed on an ad hoc basis and will focus on topics of pressing policy interest. Examples of broad topic areas include: Lhorne on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES • Local management information system developments • New processes and procedures • Services to different target groups • Integration and coordination with other programs • Local workforce investment board membership and training ETA needs quick turnaround surveys for a number of reasons. The most pressing reason concerns the need to understand key operational issues in light of changes in focus deriving from the Administration’s policy priorities. ETA needs timely information that identifies the scope and magnitude of various practices or problems, and to fulfill its obligations to develop high quality policy, research, administrative guidance, regulations, and technical assistance. ETA will request data in the quick turnaround surveys that are not otherwise available. Other research and evaluation efforts, including case studies or long-range evaluations, either cover only a limited number of sites or take many years for data to be gathered and analyzed. Administrative information and data are too limited. The Five-Year Workforce Investment Plans, developed by States and local areas, are too general in nature to meet ETA’s specific informational needs. Quarterly or annual data reported by States and local areas do not provide information on key operational practices and issues. Thus, ETA has no alternative mechanism for collecting precise information that both identifies the scope and magnitude of emerging issues and provides the information on a quick turnaround basis. ETA will make every effort to coordinate the quick turnaround surveys with other research it is conducting, in order to ease the burden on local and State respondents, to avoid duplication, and to fully explore how interim data and information from each study can be used to inform other studies. Information from the quick turnaround surveys will complement but not duplicate other ETA reporting requirements or evaluation studies. VerDate Sep<11>2014 15:27 Sep 12, 2016 Jkt 238001 Section 169 of WIOA authorizes this information collection for both evaluation activities (Section 169 (a)) and research activities (Section 169 (b)). CURRENT ACTION: The Department of Labor (DOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA) is soliciting comments concerning a proposed revision for the authority to conduct the information collection request (ICR) titled, ‘‘Quick Turnaround Surveys.’’ This comment request is part of continuing Departmental efforts to reduce paperwork and respondent burden in accordance with the PRA. II. Review Focus The Department is particularly interested in comments which: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • enhance the quality, utility and clarity of the information to be collected; • minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention 1205–0436. Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this ICR and posted on the Internet, without redaction. The DOL encourages commenters not to include personally identifiable information, confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information in any comments. Agency: DOL–DOL–ETA.

Title: Privacy of Consumer Financial Information Recordkeeping and Disclosure Requirements Under GrammLeach-Bliley Act and Regulation P, 12 CFR 1016. Abstract: Title V, Subtitle A of the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (Act), Public Law 106–102, governs the treatment of nonpublic personal information about consumers by financial institutions. Section 502 of the Act, subject to certain exceptions, prohibits a financial institution from disclosing nonpublic personal information about a consumer to nonaffiliated third parties, unless the institution satisfies various notice and opt-out requirements, and provided the consumer has not elected to opt out of the disclosure. Section 503 of the Act requires a financial institution to provide notice of its privacy policies and practices to its customers. Section 504 of the Act granted rulemaking authority for the privacy provisions of the Act to be shared by eight Federal agencies: The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (FRB), the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC), the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC), the Office of Thrift Supervision (OTS), the National Credit Union Administration (NCUA), the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), and the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC). Each of the agencies issued rules (which were consistent and comparable) to implement the Act’s privacy provisions. The Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (DFA) amended a number of consumer financial protection laws, including the Act. Among other changes, the DFA transferred rulemaking authority for most of Subtitle A of Title V of the Act, with respect to financial institutions described in section 504(a)(1)(A) of the Act, from FRB, FDIC, OCC, OTS, and NCUA to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). Pursuant to the DFA and the Act, as amended, the CFPB promulgated Regulation P, 12 CFR 1016, to implement those privacy provisions of the Act for which CFPB has rulemaking authority. Regulation P implements the requirements of the Act to provide consumers with financial institutions’ privacy policies and practices, as well as describes when the consumer’s information may be shared with nonaffiliated third parties, and provides a method for consumers to prevent disclosure of their information to PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 62925 nonaffiliated third parties by opting out of that disclosure. Regulation P details the specifics of how the Act should be implemented, which companies and situations this applies to, and the method of delivering the information to consumers. Regulation P includes model forms that can be used to comply with the disclosure requirements of the Act and Regulation P, although the use of the model forms is not required. See Appendix to Regulation P. Affected Public: Private Sector: Businesses or other for-profits. Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 386,104. By Gerard Poliquin, Secretary of the Board, the National Credit Union Administration, on September 7, 2016. Dated: September 8, 2016. Troy S. Hillier, NCUA PRA Clearance Officer.
