Estimated annual burden hours: FR 28: 3,500 hours, FR 28s: 33 hours, FR 28i: 75 hours, Total: 3,608 hours. General Description of Report: The Application for Employment with the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Application) collects information to determine the qualifications and availability of applicants for employment with the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System (Board). The FR 28 collects information on education and training, employment record, military service record, and other information since the time the applicant left high school. Included with the FR 28 are two supplemental questionnaires: (1) The Applicant’s Voluntary SelfIdentification Form (FR 28s), which collects information on the applicant’s gender and ethnic group and (2) The Research Assistant Candidate Survey of Interests (FR 28i), which collects information from candidates applying for Research Assistant (RA) positions on their level of interest in economics and related areas. The Board receives approximately 3,500 applications per year, both solicited and unsolicited, from members of the public who would like to be considered for employment at the Board. Since the applicant is usually either hired by the Board or finds other employment within the two years that the Board retains the Application, the applicant generally files the Application once. The Application is comprised of eight sections: Background, Education and Training, Employment Record, Military Service Record, References, General, Remarks, and Notes. The first six sections collect information on specific aspects of the applicant’s qualifications. The Background section collects name, address, telephone, and citizenship information and the position for which the applicant is applying. The Education and Training section collects detailed information on the applicant’s educational history and skills set. The Employment Record section collects a chronological summary of work experience. The Military Service Record section collects information on service branch, rank, duties, and discharge. The References section collects information on three references. The General section collects information on criminal records, discharge from employment, willingness to travel, and relations to or acquaintances with Board staff or officers and directors of financial institutions. The Remarks section provides the applicant an opportunity to VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:50 Jul 27, 2017 Jkt 241001 provide further information regarding his or her qualifications. The Notes section explains what is required of the applicant prior to an interview and what may be required of the applicant if he or she is offered a position (for example, transcripts, medical examination, or drug test). The FR 28s is comprised of four sections: (1) Name and gender, in which applicants are asked to check the box that corresponds to their gender or check ‘‘I do not wish to disclose’’, (2) position for which the applicant is applying, (3) ethnicity selfidentification, in which applicants are asked to choose between Hispanic or Latino or Not Hispanic or Latino, or ‘‘I do not wish to disclose,’’ and (4) race self-identification, in which applicants are asked to choose one or more among American Indian or Alaskan Native, Asian, Black or African-American, Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander, White, or ‘‘I do not wish to disclose.’’ The Board uses this information to comply with federal equal employment opportunity (EEO) recordkeeping and reporting requirements, other legal requirements, and as an input to its self-analysis of hiring practices. Information collected on the FR 28s has no bearing on the determination of an applicant’s jobrelated qualifications and completion of the self-identification form is voluntary. The FR 28i is comprised of three sections in which research assistant candidates are asked to rate their level of interest in categories of economics and related research areas, experience with various software packages and statistical programming languages, and interest in pursuing educational opportunities after leaving the Board. The FR 28i helps to streamline the recruitment process. Proposed revisions: The Board proposes four changes to the FR 28 form: (1) Adding fields in the employment history section for job type, shift, employee status, and desired compensation; (2) adding fields in the education and training section for issue and expiration date for certifications and professional licenses; (3) adding fields in the references section for relationship, type, and length of relationship with the reference; and (4) adding fields in the submission section to allow for withdrawal of the application and a request for the applicant to provide a reason for withdrawal. The Board proposes to revise the FR 28i questionnaire by adding a section to allow an open-ended response by applicants to describe how they’ve demonstrated attributes that are PO 00000 Frm 00032 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 35203 displayed by successful research assistants in the Economics Divisions. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The Board’s Legal Division has determined that the Application (including the two supplemental questionnaires) is required to obtain the benefit of Board employment. It is authorized pursuant to sections 10(4) and 11(1) of the Federal Reserve Act, which provide the Federal Reserve Board broad authority over employment of staff. (12 U.S.C. 244 and 248(l)). Information provided on the Application (including the two supplemental questionnaires) will be kept confidential under exemption (b)(6) of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the extent that the disclosure of information ‘‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)). However, the release of information such as the educational and professional qualifications of applicants would not likely constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and would not be kept confidential.

Purpose OMB clearance 9000–0134 supports the information collection requirement contained in 52.223–9, Estimate of Percentage of Recovered Material Content for EPA-designated Items. Section 6002 of the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA), Public Law 94–580, (42 U.S.C. 6962), requires Federal agencies to develop affirmative procurement programs to ensure that items composed of recovered materials will be purchased to the maximum extent practicable. An agency’s affirmative procurement program must include: (1) A recovered materials preference program and an agency promotion program for the preference program; (2) a program for requiring estimates of the total percentage of recovered materials used in the performance of a contract, certification of minimum recovered material content used, and where appropriate and reasonable, verification procedures for estimates and PO 00000 Frm 00033 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 certifications; and (3) annual review and monitoring of the effectiveness of an agency’s affirmative procurement program. For items the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has designated as produced or that can be produced from recovered material, agencies are required to track the percentaage of recovered material content used during contract performance. This requirement applies whenever an acquisition sets forth minimum percentages of recovered materials; when the price of the item exceeds $10,000; or when the aggregate amount paid for the item or functionally equivalent items in the preceding fiscal year was $10,000 or more. Pursuant to FAR clause 52.223–9, when the contract requires the delivery of or use of an EPA-designated item, contractors shall report the estimated percentage of total recovered material content delivered or used, at contract completion. The clause is included in solicitations and contracts exceeding $150,000, except for acquisitions of commercially-available, off-the-shelf (COTS) items. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 1,047. Responses per Respondent: 1.5. Annual Responses: 1,571. Hours per Response: .50. Total Burden Hours: 785. C. Public Comments Public Comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of functions of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR), and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of appropriate technilogical collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the General Services Administration, Regulatory Secretariat Division (MVCB), 1800 F Street NW., Washington, DC 20405, telephone 202–501–4755. Please cite OMB control No. 9000– 0134, Environmentally Sound Products, in all correspondence. E:\FR\FM\28JYN1.SGM 28JYN1
