SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Written comments and suggestions from the public and affected agencies concerning the proposed collection of information are encouraged. Your comments should address one or more of the following four points: —Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Bureau of Justice Statistics, 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; —Evaluate whether and if so how the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected can be enhanced; and —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 submission of responses. Overview of this information collection: 1. Type of Information Collection: Extension of a currently approved collection. 2. The Title of the Form/Collection: FBI National Academy Post—End-ofSession Student Course Questionnaire— FBI National Academy: General Remarks Questionnaire 3. The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: The form is unnumbered. The applicable component within the Training Division, Department of Justice (DOJ), Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) 4. Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: FBI National Academy students that represent state and local police and sheriffs’ departments, military police organizations, and federal law enforcement agencies from the United States and over 150 foreign nations. This collection is requested by the FBI National Academy. These VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:21 Jun 22, 2017 Jkt 241001 questionnaires have been designed to collect feedback from National Academy graduates and their supervisors to determine the type of impact the National Academy program had on their organization. The results are used to help determine if the National Academy program is functioning as intended and meeting its goals and objectives. We will utilize the students’ comments to improve the current curriculum. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: Approximately 1,000 FBI National Academy graduates per year will respond to two types of questionnaires. (1) FBI National Academy; End-of-Session Student Course Questionnaire and (2) FBI National Academy: General Remarks Questionnaire. It is predicted we will receive a 75% response rate for both questionnaires. Each student will respond to seven Student Course questionnaires-one for each course they completed. The average time for reading the questionnaire directions is estimated to be two (2) minutes; the time to complete each questionnaire is estimated to be approximately 13 minutes. Thus the total time to complete one Student Course questionnaire 15 minutes and 105 minutes for all seven questionnaires. For the FBI National Academy: General Remarks Questionnaire, students will respond to one questionnaire. The average time for reading the questionnaire directions is estimated to be two (2) minutes; the time to complete the questionnaire is estimated to be approximately 10 minutes. Thus the total time to complete the General Remarks Questionnaire is 12 minutes. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: The estimated public burden associated with this collection is 1462.5 hours given that approximately 75% of those surveyed (or 750) will respond.

part, the Administrative Officer will: (1) Make any correction of any 
portion of the record which the individual believes is not accurate, 
relevant, timely or complete and thereafter inform the individual of 
such correction; or (2) Inform the individual, by certified mail return 
receipt requested, of the refusal to amend the record, setting forth 
the reasons therefor, and notify the individual of the right to appeal 
that determination as provided under 45 CFR 503.8. (d) The provisions 
for amending records do not apply to evidence presented in the course 
of Commission proceedings in the adjudication of claims, nor do they

agency action in the adjudication of claims in programs previously 
completed by the Commission pursuant to statutory time limitations.

sufficient to identify the record, e.g., the individual's own name, 
claim and decision number, date and place of birth, etc.; (2) Provide 
identification sufficient to verify the individual's identity, e.g., 
driver's license, Medicare card, or other government issued 
identification; and (3) Any individual requesting access to records or 
information pertaining to himself or herself may be accompanied by a 
person of the individual's own choosing while reviewing the records or 
information. If an individual elects to be so accompanied, advance 
notification of the election will be required along with a written 
statement authorizing disclosure and discussion of the record in the 
presence of the accompanying person at any time, including the time 
access is granted. (b) Any individual making a request for access to 
records or information pertaining to himself or herself by mail must
