SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Local Public Agencies Training and Technical Assistance Needs Assessment Background: The Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) is charged with implementing a local technical assistance program under 23 U.S.C. 504 (b). Congress recognized that training and technical assistance to the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00084 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40827 local public agencies (LPA) to provide access to surface transportation technology, technical assistance and training was necessary and created the Rural Technical Assistance Program (RTAP) in 1982. In 1991, through the Intermodal Surface Transportation Efficiency Act (ISTEA) legislation, this program became the Local Technical Assistance Program (LTAP). There is an LTAP Center in every State and PR/ USVI—51 total. The program has launched a strategic planning process and a lack of data directly linking training to improvements in program delivery and innovation deployment outcomes posed a challenge to the Agency. A needs assessment survey will help inform and identify what areas of knowledge that training needs to accomplish within the local agency community. The results of the assessment will help direct resources to the areas of greatest demand. The survey will be conducted once over a 30 day period. These are surveys to collect training related information and there are no sensitive or personal questions, therefore confidentiality is not guaranteed or necessary. Respondents: Local Public Agency Public Works Directors and Road Superintendents. Frequency: This is a one-time collection. Estimated Average Burden per Response: Approximately 7,800 responses who will each require an average of 15 minutes to respond. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: The total annual public burden hours for this information collection is estimated to be 1,950 hours. Authority: The Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995; 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35, as amended; and 49 CFR 1.48. Issued on: August 22, 2017. Michael Howell, Information Collection Officer.
