ACTION: Notice of GSA Per Diem Bulletin FTR 18–01, Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 CONUS per diem reimbursement rates. AGENCY: GSA’s Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 per diem reimbursement rates review has resulted in lodging and meal allowance changes for certain locations within CONUS to provide for reimbursement of Federal employees’ subsistence expenses while on official travel. SUMMARY: Applicability: This notice applies to travel performed on or after October 1, 2017, through September 30, 2018. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: For clarification of content, contact Ms. Jill Denning, Office of Government-wide Policy, Office of Asset and Transportation Management, at 202– 208–7642, or by email at travelpolicy@ gsa.gov. Please cite Notice of GSA Per Diem Bulletin FTR 18–01. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background: The CONUS per diem reimbursement rates prescribed in Bulletin 18–01 may be found at www.gsa.gov/perdiem. GSA bases the maximum lodging allowance rates on the average daily rate that the lodging industry reports to an independent organization. If a maximum lodging allowance rate and/or a meals and incidental expenses (M&IE) per diem reimbursement rate is insufficient to meet necessary expenses in any given location, Federal executive agencies can request that GSA review that location. Please review numbers six and seven of GSA’s per diem Frequently Asked Questions, at www.gsa.gov/perdiemfaqs, for more information on the special review process. In addition, the Federal Travel Regulation (FTR) allows for actual expense reimbursement as provided in §§ 301–11.300 through 301– 11.306. For FY 2018, no new nonstandard area locations were added. The standard CONUS lodging allowance rate will increase from $91 to $93. The M&IE reimbursement rate tiers were not revised for FY 2018. GSA issues and publishes the CONUS per diem rates, formerly published in Appendix A to 41 CFR Chapter 301, DATES: PO 00000 Frm 00038 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 solely on the Internet at www.gsa.gov/ perdiem. GSA also now solely publishes the M&IE meal breakdown table, which is used when employees are required to deduct meals from their M&IE reimbursement pursuant to FTR § 301– 11.18, at www.gsa.gov/mie. This process, implemented at 68 FR 22314, on April 28, 2003, for per diem reimbursement rates, and in 2015 for the M&IE breakdown table, ensures more timely changes in per diem reimbursement rates established by GSA for Federal employees on official travel within CONUS. Notices published periodically in the Federal Register, such as this one, now constitute the only notification of revisions in CONUS per diem reimbursement rates to agencies other than the changes posted on the GSA Web site.

In addition, the PRA also requires Federal agencies to provide a 60-day notice in the Federal Register concerning each proposed collection of information, including each new proposed collection, each proposed extension of existing collection of information, and each reinstatement of previously approved information collection before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, we are publishing this notice of a proposed data collection as described below. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, Information Collection Request Procedures Manual 33 retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information; and to SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39787 transmit or otherwise disclose the information. Proposed Project National Surveillance for Severe Adverse Events among Persons on Treatment of Latent Tuberculosis Infection—(OMB Control No. 0920– 0773, expires 01/17/2018)—Extension— Division of Tuberculosis Elimination (DTBE), National Center for HIV, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention NCHHSTP), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Background and Brief Description As part of the national tuberculosis (TB) elimination strategy, the American Thoracic Society and CDC have published recommendations for targeted testing for TB and treatment for latent TB infection (LTBI) (Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) 2000;49[RR06];1–54). However, between October 2000 and September 2004, the CDC received reports of 50 patients with severe adverse events (SAEs) associated with the use of the two or three-month regimen of rifampin and pyrazinamide (RZ) for the treatment of LTBI; 12 (24%) patients died (MMWR 2003;52[31]:735– 9). In 2004, CDC began collecting reports of SAEs among persons on treatment regimen for LTBI. For surveillance purposes, an SAE was defined as any drug-associated reaction resulting in a patient’s hospitalization or death after at least one treatment dose for LTBI. During 2004–2016, CDC received 66 reports of SAEs among recipients of isoniazid (INH)-only (n=44), INH-rifapentine (RPT) (n=20), rifampin (RIF) (n=1) and INH/Levofloxacin (n=1) for LTBI. Among INH-only recipients, seven died; five, including one child, underwent liver transplantation. Among INH–RPT, RIF, and INH/Levofloxacin recipients, length of hospitalization ranged 1–20 (median: 3) days; no liver transplants or deaths were reported. The RIF recipient had an acute kidney injury but recovered after three hemodialysis treatments [Severe Adverse Events (Hospitalization or Death) Among Persons on Treatment for Latent Tuberculosis Infection, United States, January 2004–December 2016. Presented at the NAR/IUATLD Conference, Vancouver, Canada, February 2017]. Ten of the SAEs were published in Powell, K, et al. Severe Isoniazidassociated Liver Injuries among Persons Being Treated for Latent Tuberculosis Infection-United States, 2004–2008. MMWR 2010; 59:224–9. Reports of SAEs related to LTBI treatment regimens have prompted a need for this project—a national E:\FR\FM\22AUN1.SGM 22AUN1
