The final rule was promulgated under Section 203 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013, Public Law 113–67 (Act). The Act prohibits the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) from disclosing DMF information during the three-year period following an individual’s death (Limited Access DMF), unless the person requesting the information has been certified to access the Limited Access DMF pursuant to certain criteria in a program that the Secretary establishes. The Secretary delegated the authority to carry out Section 203 to the Director of NTIS. On December 30, 2014, NTIS initially described a ‘‘Limited Access Death Master File Systems Safeguards Attestation Form’’ in the notice of proposed rulemaking (79 FR 78314 at 78321). To accommodate the requirements of the final rule, NTIS is using both the ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form and the AG E:\FR\FM\09FEN1.SGM 09FEN1 sradovich on DSK3GMQ082PROD with NOTICES 9992 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 26 / Thursday, February 9, 2017 / Notices or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form.

The ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form collects information based on an assessment by the ACAB conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or Certified Person’s submission of a completed certification statement under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes specific requirements of the final rule, which the ACAB must certify are satisfied, and the provision of specific information by the ACAB, such as the date of the assessment and the auditing standard(s) used for the assessment. Section 1110.501(a)(2) of the final rule provides that a state or local government office of AG or IG and a Person or Certified Person that is a department or agency of the same state or local government, respectively, are not considered to be owned by a common ‘‘parent’’ entity under Section 1110.501(a)(1)(ii) for the purpose of determining independence, and attestation by the AG or IG is possible. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form is for the use of a state or local government AG or IG to attest on behalf of a state or local government department or agency Person or Certified Person. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form requires the state or local government AG or IG to attest that a Person seeking certification or a Certified Person seeking renewal of certification has information security systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the security of the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 1110.102(a)(2) of the final rule.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

I. Abstract

    This notice informs the public that the National Technical 
Information Service (NTIS) is requesting approval for renewal of a 
currently approved information collection described in Section II for 
use in connection with the final rule for the ``Certification Program 
for Access to the Death Master File.'' The final rule was published on 
June 1, 2016 (81 FR 34882), and the rule became effective on November 
28, 2016.

II. Method of Collection

    Title of Information Collection:

(A) ``Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF) Accredited Conformity 
Assessment Body Systems Safeguards Attestation Form'' (ACAB Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Form)
(B) ``Limited Access Death Master File (LADMF) State or Local 
Government Auditor General (AG) or Inspector General (IG) Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Form'' (AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation 
Form)

    Description of the Need for the Information and the Proposed Use: 
NTIS issued a final rule establishing a program through which persons 
may become eligible to obtain access to Death Master File (DMF) 
information about an individual within three years of that individual's 
death. The final rule was promulgated under Section 203 of the 
Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013, Public Law 113-67 (Act). The Act 
prohibits the Secretary of Commerce (Secretary) from disclosing DMF 
information during the three-year period following an individual's 
death (Limited Access DMF), unless the person requesting the 
information has been certified to access the Limited Access DMF 
pursuant to certain criteria in a program that the Secretary 
establishes. The Secretary delegated the authority to carry out Section 
203 to the Director of NTIS.
    On December 30, 2014, NTIS initially described a ``Limited Access 
Death Master File Systems Safeguards Attestation Form'' in the notice 
of proposed rulemaking (79 FR 78314 at 78321). To accommodate the 
requirements of the final rule, NTIS is using both the ACAB Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Form and the AG

[[Page 9992]]

or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form.
    The ACAB Systems Safeguards Attestation Form requires an 
``Accredited Conformity Assessment Body'' (ACAB), as defined in the 
final rule, to attest that a Person seeking certification or a 
Certified Person seeking renewal of certification has information 
security systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the 
security of the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 
1110.102(a)(2) of the final rule. The ACAB Systems Safeguards 
Attestation Form collects information based on an assessment by the 
ACAB conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or 
Certified Person's submission of a completed certification statement 
under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes 
specific requirements of the final rule, which the ACAB must certify 
are satisfied, and the provision of specific information by the ACAB, 
such as the date of the assessment and the auditing standard(s) used 
for the assessment.
    Section 1110.501(a)(2) of the final rule provides that a state or 
local government office of AG or IG and a Person or Certified Person 
that is a department or agency of the same state or local government, 
respectively, are not considered to be owned by a common ``parent'' 
entity under Section 1110.501(a)(1)(ii) for the purpose of determining 
independence, and attestation by the AG or IG is possible. The AG or IG 
Systems Safeguards Attestation Form is for the use of a state or local 
government AG or IG to attest on behalf of a state or local government 
department or agency Person or Certified Person. The AG or IG Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Form requires the state or local government AG 
or IG to attest that a Person seeking certification or a Certified 
Person seeking renewal of certification has information security 
systems, facilities and procedures in place to protect the security of 
the Limited Access DMF, as required under Section 1110.102(a)(2) of the 
final rule. The AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Form collects 
information based on an assessment by the state or local government AG 
or IG conducted within three years prior to the date of the Person or 
Certified Person's submission of a completed certification statement 
under Section 1110.101(a) of the final rule. This collection includes 
specific requirements of the final rule, which the state or local 
government AG or IG must certify are satisfied, and the provision of 
specific information by the state or local government AG or IG, such as 
the date of the assessment.

approximately 60 AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Forms annually 
at a fee of $525 per form, for a total cost of $31,500. This total 
annual cost reflects the cost to the Federal Government for the AG or 
IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Forms, which consists of the expenses 
associated with NTIS personnel reviewing and processing these forms. 
NTIS estimates that it will take an AG or IG senior auditor three hours 
to complete the form at a rate of approximately $100 per hour, for a 
total additional cost to the public of $18,000 (180 burden hours x 
$100/hour = $18,000). NTIS estimates the total annual cost to the 
public for AG or IG Systems Safeguards Attestation Forms to be $49,500 
($31,500 in fees + $18,000 in staff time = $49,500).

NTIS estimates the total annual cost to the public for both the ACAB 
Systems Safeguards Attestation Forms and the AG or IG Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Forms to be $514,500 ($465,000 for ACAB Systems 
Safeguards Attestation Forms + $49,500 for AG or IG Systems Safeguards 
Attestation Forms.
