The Framework is described in the April 26, 2005 Federal Register Notice (79 FR 21408). This request will allow OECA to collect information from enforcement and compliance files reviewed during routine on-site visits of state or local agency offices that will assist in the evaluation of the State Review Framework implementation from FY 2017 to the end of FY 2019. It will allow also EPA to make inquiries to assess the State Review Framework process, including the consistency achieved among the EPA Regions and states, the resources required to conduct the reviews, and the overall effectiveness of the program. Form Numbers: None. Respondents/affected entities: States, localities, and territories. Respondent’s obligation to respond: Required as part of program authorization under the Clean Water, Clean Air, and Resource Conservation and Recovery Acts. Estimated number of respondents: 54. Frequency of response: Once every five years. Total estimated burden: 2,765 hours (per year). Burden is defined at 5 CFR 1320.03(b) Total estimated cost: $108,649 (per year), includes $0 annualized capital or operation & maintenance costs. Changes in Estimates: There is decrease of 2,862 hours (per year) in the total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently approved by OMB. This decrease reflects full implementation of efficiencies instituted just prior to the submittal of the currently approved ICR in addition to continued experience on the part of respondents with the review process. Also, adjustments were made to the estimates because several alternative respondents were consulted to who had completed a more recent review. Dated: September 20, 2016.

Likewise, sections 2001(b) and 2051(b) substantially revised the 
authority for Government financing of purchases of non-commercial 
items, by permitting contract financing on the basis of certain classes 
of measures of performance.

revising Subparts 32.0, 32.1, and 32.5; by adding new Subparts 32.2 and
