SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Operating Guidelines, Forms and Waivers. OMB Number: 0584–0083. Forms: FNS–366A; FNS–366B; SNAP Waiver Request Form Expiration Date: April 30, 2017. Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection. Abstract: Section 16(a) of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 (the Act) authorizes 50 percent Federal reimbursement for State agency costs to administer the program. 7 CFR 272.2(a) of SNAP regulations requires that State agencies plan and budget program operations and establish objectives for the next year. The basic components of the State Plan of Operation are the Federal/State Agreement, the Budget Projection Statement (FNS–366A) and the Program Activity Statement (FNS– 366B) (7 CFR 272.2(a)(2)). Under 7 CFR 272.2(c), the State agency shall submit to FNS for approval a Budget Projection Statement (which projects total Federal administrative costs for the upcoming fiscal year) and a Program Activity Statement (which provides program activity data for the preceding fiscal year). In addition, certain attachments to the plan as specified in subparagraphs PO 00000 Frm 00001 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 (c) and (d) are to be submitted. As specified in subparagraph (f), State agencies only have to provide FNS with changes to these attachments as they occur. Consequently, these attachments are considered State plan updates. Under Section 11(o) of the Act each State agency is required to develop and submit plans for the use of automated data processing (ADP) and information retrieval systems to administer SNAP. Section 16(a) of the Act authorizes partial Federal reimbursement of State costs for State ADP systems that the Secretary determines will assist meeting the requirements of the Act, meets conditions prescribed by the Secretary, are likely to provide more efficient and effective administration of the program, and are compatible with certain other Federally-funded systems. Under 7 CFR 277.18(c)(1) of SNAP regulations, State agencies must obtain prior written approval from FNS when it plans to acquire ADP equipment with a total acquisition cost of $5 million or more in Federal and State funds. The State agency must submit an Advance Planning Document (APD) prior to acquiring planning services and an Implementation APD prior to acquiring ADP equipment or services. Additionally, State agencies administering SNAP may submit formal written requests, SNAP waiver requests, to obtain approval from FNS to deviate from a specific program rule or regulation. Current procedures require that in order for FNS to approve a SNAP waiver request, the State agency must submit the SNAP Waiver Request Form via the SWIM application. In 2014, FNS submitted a change justification for the SNAP Recipient Trafficking Data Survey, which added 26.5 hours to this burden. This survey is no longer being conducted, and the associated hours are removed from this collection with this notice. The reporting burden for forms FNS–366A and FNS–366B was merged in 2015 with the burden for the Food Programs Reporting System (OMB control number 0584–0594, expiration date September 30, 2019); therefore, reporting hours associated with these forms are removed from this collection with this notice. However, recordkeeping requirements for these forms remains in this OMB Control Number. E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1 79412 Federal Register / Vol. 81, No. 219 / Monday, November 14, 2016 / Notices Burden Estimates The burden within this collection consists of reporting and recordkeeping burden for the State Plan of Operation Updates and APD Plans or Updates; reporting burden for SNAP Waiver Requests via the SNAP Workflow Information Management (SWIM) system; and recordkeeping burden for forms FNS–366A and FNS–366B. The current burden is 2,754 hours. The revised estimated burden for this collection is 1,120.95 hours (1,088.62 reporting hours and 32.33 recordkeeping hours). This results in a decrease of 1,633 hours, which is a result of removing the reporting burden for forms FNS–366A and FNS–366B and the SNAP Trafficking Survey from this collection. The calculation of the burden for each of these components is described below: Reporting Reporting Burden Estimates: Affected Public: State, Local and Tribal Government Agencies. Estimated Number of Respondents: 53. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 8.35. Estimated Total Annual Responses: 442.3. Estimated Reporting Time per Response: 3.36.

State agencies are required to submit to FNS for approval a Budget Projection Statement, Form FNS–366A, which includes projections of the total Federal costs for major areas of program operations. There is a total of 53 recordkeepers for each activity. for submission of updates to State Plans of Operation is 6.58 hours per respondent, resulting in estimated burden hours of 348.99 (53 × 6.5847 = 348.99). APD Plans or Updates. We estimate that up to 53 State agencies may submit on an average of four (4) APD, plan, or update submission for a total of 212 annual responses at an average estimate of 2.5 hours per respondent. The reporting burden is 530 hours. SNAP Waiver Request Form. FNS estimates that out of 53 State agencies 45 State will submit 3.94 of the three identified waivers annually for a total number of 177 Waivers annually. Completion and submission of these waivers take approximately 1 hour for a total of 177 burden hours annually.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: I. Background The Department of Commerce (Department) collects, compiles, analyzes, and disseminates a treasure trove of data, including data on the Nation’s economy, population, and PO 00000 Frm 00003 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 79413 environment. This data is fundamental to the Department’s mission and is used for the protection of life and property, for scientific purposes, and to enhance economic growth. However, the Department’s capacity to disseminate the increasing amount of data held and to disseminate it in formats most useful to its customers is significantly constrained. In order to realize the potential value of the data the Department collects, stores, and disseminates, the Department must minimize barriers to accessing and using the data. Consistent with privacy and security considerations, the Department is firmly committed to unleashing its untapped data resources in ways that best support downstream information access, processing, analysis, and dissemination. The Commerce Data Advisory Council (CDAC) provides advice and recommendations, to include process and infrastructure improvements, to the Secretary on ways to make Commerce data easier to find, access, use, combine and disseminate. The aim of this advice shall be to maximize the value of Commerce data to all users including governments, businesses, communities, academia, and individuals. The Secretary will draw CDAC membership from the data industry academia, non-profits and state and local governments with a focus on recognized expertise in collection, compilation, analysis, and dissemination. As privacy concerns span the entire data lifecycle, expertise in privacy protection also will be represented on the Council. The Secretary will select members that represent the entire spectrum of Commerce data including demographic, economic, scientific, environmental, patent, and geospatial data. The Secretary will select members from the information technology, business, nonprofit, and academic communities, and state and local governments. Collectively, their knowledge will include all types of data Commerce distributes and the full lifecycle of data collection, compilation, analysis, and dissemination. II. Description of Duties The Council shall advise the Secretary on ways to make Commerce data easier to find, access, use, combine, and disseminate. Such advice may include recommended process and infrastructure improvements. The aim of this advice shall be to maximize the value of Commerce data to governments, businesses, communities, and individuals. E:\FR\FM\14NON1.SGM 14NON1

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 
    Title: Operating Guidelines, Forms and Waivers.
    OMB Number: 0584-0083.
    Forms: FNS-366A; FNS-366B; SNAP Waiver Request Form
    Expiration Date: April 30, 2017.
    Type of Request: Revision of a currently approved collection.
    Abstract: Section 16(a) of the Food and Nutrition Act of 2008 (the 
Act) authorizes 50 percent Federal reimbursement for State agency costs 
to administer the program. 7 CFR 272.2(a) of SNAP regulations requires 
that State agencies plan and budget program operations and establish 
objectives for the next year. The basic components of the State Plan of 
Operation are the Federal/State Agreement, the Budget Projection 
Statement (FNS-366A) and the Program Activity Statement (FNS-366B) (7 
CFR 272.2(a)(2)). Under 7 CFR 272.2(c), the State agency shall submit 
to FNS for approval a Budget Projection Statement (which projects total 
Federal administrative costs for the upcoming fiscal year) and a 
Program Activity Statement (which provides program activity data for 
the preceding fiscal year). In addition, certain attachments to the 
plan as specified in subparagraphs (c) and (d) are to be submitted. As 
specified in subparagraph (f), State agencies only have to provide FNS 
with changes to these attachments as they occur. Consequently, these 
attachments are considered State plan updates. Under Section 11(o) of 
the Act each State agency is required to develop and submit plans for 
the use of automated data processing (ADP) and information retrieval 
systems to administer SNAP. Section 16(a) of the Act authorizes partial 
Federal reimbursement of State costs for State ADP systems that the 
Secretary determines will assist meeting the requirements of the Act, 
meets conditions prescribed by the Secretary, are likely to provide 
more efficient and effective administration of the program, and are 
compatible with certain other Federally-funded systems.
    Under 7 CFR 277.18(c)(1) of SNAP regulations, State agencies must 
obtain prior written approval from FNS when it plans to acquire ADP 
equipment with a total acquisition cost of $5 million or more in 
Federal and State funds. The State agency must submit an Advance 
Planning Document (APD) prior to acquiring planning services and an 
Implementation APD prior to acquiring ADP equipment or services. 
Additionally, State agencies administering SNAP may submit formal 
written requests, SNAP waiver requests, to obtain approval from FNS to 
deviate from a specific program rule or regulation. Current procedures 
require that in order for FNS to approve a SNAP waiver request, the 
State agency must submit the SNAP Waiver Request Form via the SWIM 
application.
    In 2014, FNS submitted a change justification for the SNAP 
Recipient Trafficking Data Survey, which added 26.5 hours to this 
burden. This survey is no longer being conducted, and the associated 
hours are removed from this collection with this notice. The reporting 
burden for forms FNS-366A and FNS-366B was merged in 2015 with the 
burden for the Food Programs Reporting System (OMB control number 0584-
0594, expiration date September 30, 2019); therefore, reporting hours 
associated with these forms are removed from this collection with this 
notice. However, recordkeeping requirements for these forms remains in 
this OMB Control Number.

Burden Estimates

    The burden within this collection consists of reporting and 
recordkeeping burden for the State Plan of Operation Updates and APD 
Plans or Updates; reporting burden for SNAP Waiver Requests via the 
SNAP Workflow Information Management (SWIM) system; and recordkeeping 
burden for forms FNS-366A and FNS-366B. The current burden is 2,754 
hours. The revised estimated burden for this collection is 1,120.95 
hours (1,088.62 reporting hours and 32.33 recordkeeping hours). This 
results in a decrease of 1,633 hours, which is a result of removing the 
reporting burden for forms FNS-366A and FNS-366B and the SNAP 
Trafficking Survey from this collection. The calculation of the burden 
for each of these components is described below:

Reporting

    Reporting Burden Estimates:
    Affected Public: State, Local and Tribal Government Agencies.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: 53.
    Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 8.35.
    Estimated Total Annual Responses: 442.3.
    Estimated Reporting Time per Response: 3.36.
    Estimated Annual Reporting Burden Hours: 1,088.62.
    State Plan of Operation Updates. Fifty-three (53) State agencies 
submit 1 response annually for a total of 53 annual responses. The 
reporting burden for submission of updates to State Plans of Operation 
is 6.58 hours per respondent, resulting in estimated burden hours of 
348.99 (53 x 6.5847 = 348.99).
    APD Plans or Updates. We estimate that up to 53 State agencies may 
submit on an average of four (4) APD, plan, or update submission for a 
total of 212 annual responses at an average estimate of 2.5 hours per 
respondent. The reporting burden is 530 hours.
    SNAP Waiver Request Form. FNS estimates that out of 53 State 
agencies 45 State will submit 3.94 of the three identified waivers 
annually for a total number of 177 Waivers annually. Completion and 
submission of these waivers take approximately 1 hour for a total of 
177 burden hours annually.
