SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title: Mandatory Reliability Standards: Reliability Standard CIP– 014. OMB Control No.: 1902–0274. Type of Request: Three-year extension of the FERC–725U information collection requirements with no changes to the reporting requirements. Abstract: Reliability Standard CIP– 014–2 1 requires applicable transmission owners and transmission operators to identify and protect transmission stations and transmission substations, and their associated primary control centers that if rendered inoperable or damaged as a result of a physical attack could result in instability, uncontrolled separation, or cascading within an Interconnection. Transmission owners and transmission operators must keep data or evidence to show compliance with the standard for three years unless directed by its Compliance Enforcement Authority. If a responsible entity is found non-compliant, it must keep information related to the noncompliance until mitigation is complete and approved, or for the three years, whichever is longer.

Estimate of Annual Burden: 2 The Commission estimates the annual public reporting burden for the information collection as: 1 Reliability Standard CIP–014–2 was implemented by the letter Order in Docket No. RD15–4–000 issued on 7/14/2015. Docket No. RD15–4–000 was not submitted to OMB because it did not implicate the Paperwork Reduction Act. The revised standard became effective on 10/2/2015 and is now being included in the FERC–725U information collection. 2 Burden is defined as the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, or disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency.

The hourly cost figures are based on data for wages plus benefits from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (as of 11/9/2016) at https://www.bls.gov/ oes/current/naics2_22.htm and http://www.bls.gov/ news.release/ecec.nr0.htm.

The record retention cost is based on the administrative staff category; R3 is based on the attorney category; Requirements R1, R4, R5 and R6 are based on the electrical engineer category; and R2 is a mix of the electrical engineer and related engineering review process (30 hrs. at $64/hr.) and 19:17 Oct 31, 2017 Average burden hours and cost per response 4 334 TO .......................... 334 TO .......................... 2 TOP ............................ 30 TO and 2 TOP ......... 30 TO and 2 TOP ......... 30 TO and 2 TOP ......... 334 TO and 2 TOP .......

    Comments: Comments are invited on: (1) Whether the collection of 
information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of 
the Commission, including whether the information will have practical 
utility; (2) the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden and 
cost of the collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used; (3) ways to enhance the quality, 
utility and clarity of the information collection; and (4) ways to 
minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are 
to respond, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.

    \3\ For each Reliability Standard, the Measure shows the 
acceptable evidence for the associated Reporting Requirement (R 
numbers), and the Compliance section details the related 
Recordkeeping Requirement.
    \4\ The estimates for cost per response are derived using the 
following formula: Average Burden Hours per Response * XX per Hour = 
Average Cost per Response.
    The hourly cost figures are based on data for wages plus 
benefits from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (as of 11/9/2016) at 
https://www.bls.gov/oes/current/naics2_22.htm and http://www.bls.gov/news.release/ecec.nr0.htm. The figures are rounded for 
the purposes of calculations in this table and are:
    1. For electrical engineers (occupation code: 17-2071), $64.29/
hr., rounded to $64/hr.
    2. For attorneys (occupation code: 23-0000), $129.12/hr., 
rounded to $129/hr.
    3. For administrative staff (occupation code: 43-0000), $37.75/
hr., rounded to $38/hr.
    The record retention cost is based on the administrative staff 
category; R3 is based on the attorney category; Requirements R1, R4, 
R5 and R6 are based on the electrical engineer category; and R2 is a 
mix of the electrical engineer and related engineering review 
process (30 hrs. at $64/hr.) and attorney (4 hrs. at $129/hr.) 
categories. The resulting average hourly figure is $71.65, rounded 
to $72/hr.
