B. Submitting Comments The NRC cautions you not to include identifying or contact information in comment submissions that you do not want to be publicly disclosed in your comment submission. All comment submissions are posted at http:// www.regulations.gov and entered into ADAMS. Comment submissions are not routinely edited to remove identifying or contact information. If you are requesting or aggregating comments from other persons for submission to the NRC, then you should inform those persons not to include identifying or contact information that they do not want to be publicly disclosed in their comment submission. Your request should state that comment submissions are not routinely edited to remove such information before making the comment submissions available to the public or entering the comment into ADAMS. II. Background In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC is requesting public comment on its intention to request the OMB’s approval for the information collection summarized below. 1. The title of the information collection: 10 CFR part 9, ‘‘Public Records.’’ 2. OMB approval number: 3150–0043. 3. Type of submission: Extension. 4. The form number, if applicable: NRC Form 509; NRC Form 507. 5. How often the collection is required or requested: On occasion. 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: FOIA requesters who have requests that require pre-payment or agree to pay for the processing of their FOIA requests. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 2,490. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 2,490. 9. The estimated number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 1,111. 10. Abstract: The proposed information collection activity provides communication with FOIA requesters to have the opportunity to be notified about any fees to process their FOIA requests. Providing NRC Form 509 to a requester serves as notification of the processing fees as it relates to search, E:\FR\FM\22SEN1.SGM 22SEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 183 / Friday, September 22, 2017 / Notices review, and duplication. Pursuant to NRC’s regulations, 10 CFR part 9.40, when fees exceed $25.00 the requester has the opportunity to re-scope their request. Additionally, in response to the FOIA Improvement Act of 2016, in accordance with 10 CFR part 9.39, the revised form notifies the requester that if the agency fails to comply with statutory time limits, the agency cannot charge the requester any fees (except in unusual circumstances). In the event that fees are required, the requester can verify their willingness to pay on this form, and must submit payment within ten working days of the receipt of the form. In addition, the NRC created Form 507 which allows the public to electronically submit FOIA requests from the FOIA Web site. Unlike the previous online FOIA request submission form, requesters can provide identification verification at the time the request is made, which shortens the processing time. III. Specific Requests for Comments The NRC is seeking comments that address the following questions: 1. Is the proposed collection of information necessary for the NRC to properly perform its functions? Does the information have practical utility? 2. Is the estimate of the burden of the information collection accurate? 3. Is there a way to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected? 4. How can the burden of the information collection on respondents be minimized, including the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology?

ACTION: 60-Day Notice and Request for Comments. AGENCY: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) intends to submit to the Office of Management and Budget SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:11 Sep 21, 2017 Jkt 241001 (OMB) a request for review of a currently approved collection, Organizational Assessment Surveys. OPM is requesting approval of Organizational Assessment Surveys, Federal Employee Viewpoint Surveys, Exit Surveys, New Leaders Onboarding Assessments, New Employee Surveys, Training Needs Assessment Surveys, and custom Program Evaluation surveys as a part of this collection. Approval of the Organizational Assessment Surveys is necessary to collect information on Federal agency and program performance, climate, engagement, and leadership effectiveness. DATES: Comments are encouraged and will be accepted until November 21, 2017. ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the proposed information collection to Human Resources Strategy and Evaluation Solutions, Office of Personnel Management, 1900 E Street, NW., Washington, DC 20415, Attention: Coty Hoover, or via email to Organizational_Assessment@opm.gov. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: A copy of this ICR, with applicable supporting documentation, may be obtained by contacting Human Resources Strategy and Evaluation Solutions, Office of Personnel Management, 1900 E Street NW., Washington, DC 20415, Attention: Coty Hoover, or via email to Organizational_ Assessment@opm.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, (Pub. L. 104–13, 44 U.S.C. chapter 35) as amended by the ClingerCohen Act (Pub. L. 104–106), OPM is soliciting comments for this collection. The previous collection (OMB No. 3206–0252, published in the Federal Register on December 26, 2013 at 78 FR 248) has an emergency clearance (published in the Federal Register on May 5, 2017 at 82 FR 21273) that expires January 31, 2018. Comments are particularly invited on: 1. Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 2. Whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; and 3. Ways in which we can minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, through the use of the appropriate technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. PO 00000 Frm 00096 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 44471 OPM’s Human Resources Strategy and Evaluation Solutions performs assessment and related consultation activities for Federal agencies on a reimbursable basis. The assessments are authorized by various statutes and regulations: Section 4702 of Title 5, U.S.C.; E.O. 12862; E.O. 13715; Section 1128 of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2004, Public Law 108–136; 5 U.S.C. 1101 note, 1103(a)(5), 1104, 1302, 3301, 3302, 4702, 7701 note; E.O. 13197, 66 FR 7853, 3 CFR 748 (2002); E.O. 10577, 12 FR 1259, 3 CFR, 1954–1958 Comp., p. 218; and Section 4703 of Title 5, United States Code. This collection request includes surveys we currently use and plan to use during the next three years to measure agency performance, climate, engagement, and leadership effectiveness. OMB No. 3206–0252 covers a broad range of surveys all focused on improving organizational performance. Non-Federal respondents will almost never receive more than one of these surveys. All of these surveys consist of Likert-type, mark-one, and mark-all-that-apply items, and may include a small number of open-ended comment items. Administration of Organizational Assessment Surveys (OAS) typically consists of a customized set of 50–150 standard items pulled from an item bank of nearly 500 items. The surveys almost always include a small set of 5–10 custom items developed to meet the agency’s specific needs. The OAS is a general survey that subsumes the Federal Employee Viewpoint Survey (FEVS). OPM’s Human Resources Strategy and Evaluation Solutions administers the FEVS for agencies to gather feedback from employee groups not covered by the official FEVS administration. Exit Surveys consist of approximately 60 items that assess reasons why employees decided to leave their organization. Customization is possible. The New Leaders Onboarding Assessment (NLOA) is a combined assessment consisting of approximately 130 items, including items measuring organizational climate, employee engagement, and leadership. New Employee Surveys consist of approximately 100 items that assess satisfaction with the hiring, orientation, and socialization of new employees. Training Needs Assessment Surveys consist of approximately 100 items that assess an agency’s climate for training and employees’ training preferences. Program Evaluation surveys evaluate the effectiveness of government initiatives, programs, and offices. Program E:\FR\FM\22SEN1.SGM 22SEN1
