Section 2834(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for Fiscal Year 2010 (Pub. L. 111–84, enacted October 28, 2009) amended Section 2824(c) of the Military Construction Authorization Act (Pub. L. 110–417, Division B) by adding a new subsection (6). This provision prohibits contractors engaged in construction projects related to the realignment of U.S. military forces from Okinawa to Guam from hiring non-U.S. workers unless the Governor of Guam (Governor), in consultation with the Secretary of Labor (Secretary), certifies that: (1) There is an insufficient number of U.S. workers that are able, willing, and qualified to perform the work; and (2) that the employment of non-U.S. workers will not have an adverse effect on either the wages or the working conditions of U.S. construction workers in Guam. In order to allow the Governor to make this certification, the NDAA requires contractors to recruit workers in the U.S., including in Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, according to the terms of a recruitment plan developed and approved by the Secretary. That recruitment plan has been reproduced in full in Section I below (‘‘Contractor Recruitment Standards’’). The Department has developed the Contractor Recruitment Standards in full consultation with, and with the approval of, the Guam Department of Labor (GDOL). Although the Department has developed the recruitment standards, it has assigned oversight of the Contractor Recruitment Standards and the NDAA-required consultation with the Governor to GDOL through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Department and GDOL, effective November 22, 2011 (the MOU can be found on the RegInfo.gov Web site listed at the end of this Federal Register Notice). Under the NDAA, no Guam base realignment construction project work may be performed by a person holding an H–2B visa under the Immigration and Nationality Act until the contractor complies with the Department’s Contractor Recruitment Standards, and the Governor of Guam issues the certification noted above. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:52 Oct 04, 2017 Jkt 244001 approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 1205– 0484. Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this ICR and posted on the Internet, without redaction. The DOL encourages commenters not to include personally identifiable information, confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information in any comments. The DOL is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate 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; • 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; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; 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.

ACTION: Notice of availability of proposed records schedules; request for comments AGENCY: The National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) publishes notice at least once monthly of certain Federal agency requests for records disposition authority (records schedules). Once approved by NARA, records schedules provide mandatory instructions on what happens to records when agencies no longer need them for current Government business. The records schedules authorize agencies to preserve records of continuing value in the National Archives of the United States and to destroy, after a specified period, records lacking administrative, legal, research, or other value. NARA publishes notice in the Federal Register SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 46533 for records schedules in which agencies propose to destroy records they no longer need to conduct agency business. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules. DATES: NARA must receive requests for copies in writing by November 6, 2017. Once NARA finishes appraising the records, we will send you a copy of the schedule you requested. We usually prepare appraisal memoranda that contain additional information concerning the records covered by a proposed schedule. You may also request these. If you do, we will also provide them once we have completed the appraisal. You have 30 days after we send to you these requested documents in which to submit comments. ADDRESSES: You may request a copy of any records schedule identified in this notice by contacting Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA) using one of the following means: Mail: NARA (ACRA); 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740–6001. Email: request.schedule@nara.gov. FAX: 301–837–3698. You must cite the control number, which appears in parentheses after the name of the agency that submitted the schedule, and a mailing address. If you would like an appraisal report, please include that in your request. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Margaret Hawkins, Director, by mail at Records Appraisal and Agency Assistance (ACRA); National Archives and Records Administration; 8601 Adelphi Road; College Park, MD 20740– 6001, by phone at 301–837–1799, or by email at request.schedule@nara.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: NARA publishes notice in the Federal Register for records schedules they no longer need to conduct agency business. NARA invites public comments on such records schedules, as required by 44 U.S.C. 3303a(a). Each year, Federal agencies create billions of records on paper, film, magnetic tape, and other media. To control this accumulation, agency records managers prepare schedules proposing records retention periods and submit these schedules for NARA’s approval. These schedules provide for timely transfer into the National Archives of historically valuable records and authorize the agency to dispose of all other records after the agency no longer needs them to conduct its business. Some schedules are comprehensive and cover all the records of an agency or one of its major subdivisions. Most schedules, however, cover records of only one office or program or a few series of records. Many E:\FR\FM\05OCN1.SGM 05OCN1

collection requirements can be properly assessed.
    Section 2834(a) of the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) 
for Fiscal Year 2010 (Pub. L. 111-84, enacted October 28, 2009) amended 
Section 2824(c) of the Military Construction Authorization Act (Pub. L. 
110-417, Division B) by adding a new subsection (6). This provision 
prohibits contractors engaged in construction projects related to the 
realignment of U.S. military forces from Okinawa to Guam from hiring 
non-U.S. workers unless the Governor of Guam (Governor), in 
consultation with the Secretary of Labor (Secretary), certifies that: 
(1) There is an insufficient number of U.S. workers that are able, 
willing, and qualified to perform the work; and (2) that the employment 
of non-U.S. workers will not have an adverse effect on either the wages 
or the working conditions of U.S. construction workers in Guam.
    In order to allow the Governor to make this certification, the NDAA 
requires contractors to recruit workers in the U.S., including in Guam, 
the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, American Samoa, the 
U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico, according to the terms of a 
recruitment plan developed and approved by the Secretary. That 
recruitment plan has been reproduced in full in Section I below 
(``Contractor Recruitment Standards'').
    The Department has developed the Contractor Recruitment Standards 
in full consultation with, and with the approval of, the Guam 
Department of Labor (GDOL). Although the Department has developed the 
recruitment standards, it has assigned oversight of the Contractor 
Recruitment Standards and the NDAA-required consultation with the 
Governor to GDOL through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between 
the Department and GDOL, effective November 22, 2011 (the MOU can be 
found on the RegInfo.gov Web site listed at the end of this Federal 
Register Notice).
    Under the NDAA, no Guam base realignment construction project work 
may be performed by a person holding an H-2B visa under the Immigration 
and Nationality Act until the contractor complies with the Department's 
Contractor Recruitment Standards, and the Governor of Guam issues the 
certification noted above.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6.
    Interested parties are encouraged to provide comments to the 
contact shown in the ADDRESSES section. Comments must be written to 
receive consideration, and they will be summarized and included in the 
request for OMB approval of the final ICR. In order to help ensure 
appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB Control Number 
1205-0484.
    Submitted comments will also be a matter of public record for this 
ICR and posted on the Internet, without redaction. The DOL encourages 
commenters not to include personally identifiable information, 
confidential business data, or other sensitive statements/information 
in any comments.
    The DOL is particularly interested in comments that:
     Evaluate 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;
     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;
     Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; 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.
