This helps the Department assess the impact of its information collection requirements and minimize the public’s reporting burden. It also helps the public understand the Department’s information collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired format. ED is soliciting comments on the proposed information collection request (ICR) that is described below. The Department of Education is especially interested in mstockstill on DSK3G9T082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 22:00 Nov 11, 2016 Jkt 241001 public comment addressing the following issues: (1) Is this collection necessary to the proper functions of the Department; (2) will this information be processed and used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of burden accurate; (4) how might the Department enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (5) how might the Department minimize the burden of this collection on the respondents, including through the use of information technology. Please note that written comments received in response to this notice will be considered public records. Title of Collection: Principal FollowUp Survey (PFS 2016–17) to the National Teacher and Principal Survey (NTPS 2015–16). OMB Control Number: 1850–NEW. Type of Review: A new information collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Individuals or Households. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 7,240. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 603. Abstract: This request is to conduct data collection for the 2016–17 Principal Follow-up Survey (PFS), a one-year follow up of principals who responded to the 2015–16 National Teacher and Principal Survey (NTPS). PFS is conducted by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), of the Institute of Education Sciences (IES), within the U.S. Department of Education (ED). The PFS has been conducted two times previously: beginning in 2008–09 as a follow up to the Schools and Staffing Survey (SASS) in 2007–08 (OMB #1850–0598 v.5) and, subsequently, as a follow-up to SASS in 2012–2013 (OMB #1850–0598 v.9). During the 2015–16 school year, NCES conducted the first NTPS (OMB #1850– 0598 v.11), a redesign of SASS to improve the flexibility, efficiency, and timeliness of NCES data on the nation’s K–12 schools, principals, and teachers. The 2016–17 PFS will be the first to launch from the redesigned NTPS. The PFS survey design and content remain highly consistent with earlier administrations. The 2016–17 PFS, like earlier PFS collections, will measure the one-year attrition rates of principals who leave the profession and will permit comparisons of stayers, movers, and leavers. ‘‘Stayers’’ are principals who remain in the same school between the NTPS year of data collection and the follow-up year; ‘‘movers’’ are principals who stay in the profession but change schools between the NTPS year and the follow-up year; and ‘‘leavers’’ are NTPS respondents who leave the principal PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 profession between the NTPS year and the follow-up year. The data collected in the 2016–17 PFS will be combined with data collected in the 2015–16 NTPS on principal characteristics, qualifications, and perceptions of the school environment. Together, NTPS and PFS provide national data on turnover in the principal workforce, including rates of entry and attrition from principalship, sources and characteristics of newly hired principals, and characteristics and destinations of leavers. The crosssectional repeated design of PFS allows for analyses of trends related to these topics. Dated: November 9, 2016.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Section 57b.(2) of the Atomic Energy Act of 1954, as amended (AEA), is implemented through the DOE/NNSA regulations under Title 10 of the Code of Federal Regulations (CPR) Part 810 (Part 810) governing exports of unclassified nuclear technology and assistance. On February 23, 2015, DOE/ NNSA published its final rule (80 FR 9359) revising Part 810. The final rule came into effect on March 25, 2015. Before the Secretary of Energy authorizes certain transfers of civil nuclear technology and assistance, DOE/NNSA is required to consult with the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC), the Department of Commerce (DOC), and the Department of Defense (DoD), and obtain the concurrence of the Department of State (DOS). These reviews are accomplished in a manner consistent with Part D of the Procedures Established Pursuant to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Act of 1978 (the ‘‘Procedures’’), as published in the Federal Register on June 7, 1978 (43 FR 25326), and amended by publication in the Federal Register on May 16, 1984 (49 FR 20780), and February 19, 1991 (56 FR 6701).

Amended Procedure To provide for consultation with the ODNI on applications for specific authorization under section 57b.(2) of the AEA, as implemented by DOE/ NNSA regulations at 10 CFR Part 810, Section 12 of Part D of the Procedures is amended as follows: 1. Within 10 days of receipt of an application for specific authorization for a transfer of technology controlled under 10 CFR Part 810, DOE/NNSA conducts a technical review of the application to determine whether the application is properly submitted and falls within the scope of the regulation. 1.a.
