Alternatives to the Proposed Action: Consistent with the Council on Environmental Quality regulations (40 CFR 1502.14) implementing NEPA, the EIS will examine a range of reasonable alternatives to the proposed project that are potentially feasible. As required by NEPA, the alternatives will be evaluated at the same level of detail as the proposed project. As a result of the scoping efforts to date, the alternatives currently proposed for evaluation in the EIS include: (1) No Project/Action Alternative. This required alternative would evaluate the environmental impacts if the proposed project were not constructed and existing conditions remain unchanged. (2) Preferred Alternative. The alternative attaining the most objectives of the project that can be accomplished while also substantially lessening significant environmental effects. (3) Two other alternatives (to be identified) based on input received during the scoping process and feasible project alternatives that avoid or minimize significant environmental effects. Probable Environmental Effects: The following topics have been identified for analysis in the EIS for probable environmental effects: coastal zone management, contamination and toxic substances, floodplain management, historic preservation, noise abatement and control, wetlands protection, environmental justice, hazards and nuisances (site safety and noise), vibration, and transportation and accessibility.

Abstract: The Secretary of the United States Department of the Interior is responsible for collecting royalties from lessees who produce minerals from leased Federal and Indian lands and the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). Under various laws, the Secretary’s responsibilities are to manage mineral resources production from Federal and Indian lands and the OCS, collect the royalties and other mineral revenues due, and distribute the funds collected. The Secretary also has a trust responsibility to manage Indian lands and seek advice and input from Indian beneficiaries. ONRR performs the royalty management functions and assists the Secretary in carrying out the Department’s responsibility for Indian lands. We have posted those laws pertaining to mineral leases on Federal and Indian lands and the OCS at http:// onrr.gov/Laws_R_D/PubLaws/ default.htm. daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES I. General Information If ONRR determines that a lessee has not properly reported or paid royalties and other mineral revenues, we may issue an order to pay additional royalties, a Notice of Noncompliance, or a Civil Penalty Notice requiring correct reporting or payment. Lessees then have a right to appeal ONRR determinations. VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:53 Dec 15, 2017 Jkt 244001 Implementing regulations at 30 CFR part 1243 govern the suspension of orders or decisions and to stay the accrual of civil penalties (if the Office of Hearings and Appeals grants a lessee’s petition to stay accrual of civil penalties), pending administrative appeal for Federal leases. These regulations require an appellant to submit information demonstrating financial solvency in lieu of providing a surety. For those appellants who are not financially solvent or for appeals involving Indian leases, ONRR requires appellants to post a surety instrument to secure the financial interest of the public and Indian lessors during the entire administrative or judicial appeal process. This ICR covers the burden hours that appellants incur when submitting the financial statements or surety instruments, subject to annual audit, that are required to stay an ONRR order, decision, or accrual of civil penalties. II. Information Collections Title 30 CFR 1243.1 states that lessees or recipients of ONRR orders may suspend compliance with an order if they appeal under 30 CFR part 1290. Pending appeal, ONRR may suspend the payment requirement if the appellant submits a formal agreement of payment in case of default such as a bond or other surety; for Federal oil and gas leases, the appellant may demonstrate financial solvency. If the Office of Hearings and Appeals grants a lessee’s, or other recipient of a Notice of Noncompliance or Civil Penalty Notice, request to stay the accrual of civil penalties under 30 CFR 1241.55(b)(2) and 1241.63(b)(2), the lessee or other recipient must post a bond or other surety, or for Federal oil and gas leases, demonstrate financial solvency. ONRR accepts the following surety types: form ONRR–4435, Administrative Appeal Bond; form ONRR–4436, Letter of Credit; form ONRR–4437, Assignment of Certificate of Deposit; Self-bonding; and U.S. Treasury Securities. When an appellant selects and puts one of the surety types in place, the appellant must maintain the surety until completion of the appeal. If the appeal is decided in favor of the appellant, ONRR returns the surety to the appellant. If the appeal is decided in favor of ONRR, then we will take action to collect the total amount due or draw down on the surety. We draw down on a surety if the appellant fails to comply with requirements relating to the amount due, timeframe, or surety submission or resubmission. Whenever ONRR must draw down on a surety, we must draw down the total amount due, PO 00000 Frm 00036 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60035 which is defined as unpaid principal plus the interest accrued to the projected receipt date of the surety payment. Appellants may refer to the Surety Instrument Posting Instructions, which are at http://www.onrr.gov/ compliance/appeals.htm. Forms and Other Surety Types Form ONRR–4435 [Administrative Appeal Bond] Appellants may file form ONRR– 4435, Administrative Appeal Bond, which ONRR uses to secure the financial interests of the public and Indian lessors during the entire administrative and judicial appeal process. Under 30 CFR 1243.4, appellants must submit their contact and surety amount information on the bond to obtain the benefit of suspension of an obligation to comply with an order. A surety company that the U.S. Department of the Treasury approves (see Department of the Treasury Circular No. 570, as revised periodically in the Federal Register) must issue the bond. The ONRR Director or the ONRRdelegated bond-approving officer maintains these bonds in a secure facility. After the appeal has concluded, ONRR may release and return the bond to the appellant or collect payment on the bond. If collection is necessary for a remaining balance, ONRR will issue a demand for payment to the surety company with a notice to the appellant. We also will include all interest accrued on the affected bill. Form ONRR–4436 [Letter of Credit] Appellants may choose to file form ONRR–4436, Letter of Credit (LOC), with no modifications. Requirements at 30 CFR 1243.4 continues to apply. The ONRR Director or the ONRR-delegated bond-approving officer maintains the LOC in a secure facility. The appellant is responsible for verifying that the bank provides a current Fitch rating to ONRR. After the appeal has been concluded, ONRR may release and return the LOC to the appellant or collect payment on the LOC. If collection is necessary for a remaining balance, we will issue a demand for payment, which includes all interest assessed on the affected bill, to the bank with a notice to the appellant. Form ONRR–4437 [Assignment of Certificate of Deposit] Appellants may choose to secure a debt using a Certificate of Deposit (CD) from a bank with the required minimum Fitch rating and by submitting form ONRR–4437, Assignment of Certificate of Deposit. Appellants must file the E:\FR\FM\18DEN1.SGM 18DEN1 60036 Federal Register / Vol. 82, No. 241 / Monday, December 18, 2017 / Notices request with ONRR prior to the invoice due date. We will accept a book-entry CD that explicitly assigns the CD to the Director. If collection of the CD is necessary for an unpaid balance, we will return unused CD funds to the appellant after total settlement of the appealed issues including applicable interest charges. Self-Bonding For Federal oil and gas leases, regulations at 30 CFR 1243.201 provides that no surety instrument is required when a person representing the appellant periodically demonstrates to the satisfaction of ONRR, that the guarantor or appellant is financially solvent or otherwise able to pay the obligation. Appellants must submit a written request to ‘‘self-bond’’ every time a new appeal is filed. To evaluate the financial solvency and exemption from requirements of appellants to maintain a surety related to an appeal, ONRR requires appellants to submit a consolidated balance sheet subject to annual audit. In some cases, we also require copies of the most recent tax returns (up to 3 years) that appellants file. In addition, appellants must annually submit financial statements, subject to audit, to support their net worth. ONRR uses the consolidated balance sheet or business information supplied to evaluate the financial solvency of a lessee, designee, or payor seeking a stay of payment obligation pending review. If appellants do not have a consolidated balance sheet documenting their net worth or if they do not meet the $300 million net worth requirement, ONRR selects a business information or credit reporting service to provide information concerning an appellant’s financial solvency. We charge the appellant a $50 fee each time we need to review data from a business information or credit reporting service. The fee covers our costs in determining an appellant’s financial solvency. U.S. Treasury Securities Appellants may choose to secure their debts by requesting to use a U.S. Treasury Security (TS). Appellants must file the letter of request with ONRR prior to the invoice due date. The TS must be a U.S. Treasury note or bond with maturity equal to or greater than 1 year. The TS must equal 120 percent of the appealed amount plus 1 year of estimated interest (necessary to protect ONRR against interest rate fluctuations). ONRR only accepts a book-entry TS. III. OMB Approval The information we collect under this ICR is essential in order to require response from appellants to suspend compliance with an order pending appeal. We are requesting OMB’s approval to continue to collect this information. Not collecting this information would limit the Secretary’s ability to discharge fiduciary duties and also may result in loss of royalty and other payments. ONRR protects the proprietary information received and does not collect items of a sensitive nature in this ICR. IV. Data Title: Suspensions Pending Appeal and Bonding, 30 CFR part 1243. OMB Control Number: 1012–0006. Bureau Form Numbers: ONRR–4435, ONRR–4436, and ONRR–4437. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Businesses. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 105 Federal or Indian appellants. Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 105. Estimated Completion Time per Response: 2 hours. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 210 hours. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. Frequency of Collection: Annually and on occasion. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: There are no additional recordkeeping costs associated with this ICR. However, ONRR estimates that five appellants per year will pay a $50 fee to obtain credit data from a business information or credit reporting service, which is a total ‘‘non-hour’’ cost burden of $250 per year (5 appellants per year × $50 = $250). We have not included in our estimates certain requirements performed in the normal course of business that are considered usual and customary.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Commission instituted this investigation on July 1, 2016, based on a Complaint filed by Fujifilm Corporation of Tokyo, Japan, and Fujifilm Recording Media U.S.A., Inc. of Bedford, Massachusetts (collectively, ‘‘Fujifilm’’). 81 FR 43243– 44 (July 1, 2016). The Complaint alleges violations of section 337 of the Tariff Act of 1930, as amended, 19 U.S.C. 1337 (‘‘section 337’’), in the sale for importation, importation, and sale within the United States after importation of certain magnetic data storage tapes and cartridges containing the same by reason of infringement of certain claims of U.S. Patent Nos. 6,641,891 (‘‘the ’891 patent’’); 6,703,106 (‘‘the ’106 patent’’); 6,703,101 (‘‘the ’101 patent’’); 6,767,612 (‘‘the ’612 patent’’); 8,236,434 (‘‘the ’434 patent’’); and 7,355,805 (‘‘the ’805 patent’’). The Complaint further alleges the existence of a domestic industry. The Commission’s Notice of Investigation named as respondents Sony Corporation of Tokyo, Japan, Sony Corporation of America of New York, New York, and Sony Electronics Inc. of San Diego, California (collectively, ‘‘Sony’’). The Office of Unfair Import Investigations (‘‘OUII’’) was also named as a party to the investigation. The Commission later terminated the investigation as to the ’101 patent. Order No. 24 (Jan. 18, 2017); Notice (Feb. 15, 2017). On September 1, 2017, the ALJ issued his final ID finding a violation of section 337 with respect to claims 1, 4–9, 11, and 14 of the ’891 patent and asserted claims 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8 of the ’612 patent. The ALJ found no violation of section 337 with respect to asserted claims 9–11 of the ’612 patent; asserted claim 2, 5, and 6 of the ’106 patent; asserted claim 1 of the ’434 patent; and asserted claims 3 and 10 of the ’805 patent. In particular, the Final ID finds that Sony’s accused products infringe claims 1, 4–9, 11, and 14 of the ’891 Patent under 35 U.S.C. 271(a). The Final ID also finds that Fujifilm’s domestic industry (‘‘DI’’) products practice the asserted claims of the ’891 Patent, thus Fujifilm has satisfied the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement with respect to the ’891 Patent regarding its LTO–6 and LTO–7 DI products. The Final ID finds that PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Sony has not shown that the asserted claims of the ’891 Patent are invalid under 35 U.S.C. 102, 103, or 112. The Final ID finds that Sony’s accused products infringe asserted claims 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, and 8 of the ’612 Patent under 35 U.S.C. 271(a). The Final ID finds, however, that Fujifilm failed to show that Sony has induced infringement of claims 9–11 of the ’612 Patent under 35 U.S.C. 271(b). The Final ID further finds that Fujifilm’s DI products practice claims 1, 2, 4, 5, and 7–11 of the ’612 Patent and, thus, Fujifilm has satisfied the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement with respect to the ’612 Patent regarding its LTO–6 and LTO–7 DI products. The Final ID finds that Sony has not shown that the asserted claims of the ’612 Patent are invalid under 35 U.S.C. 102, 103, or 112. The Final ID finds that the accused products do not infringe asserted claims 2, 5, and 6 of the ’106 Patent under 35 U.S.C. 271(a). The Final ID further finds that neither Fujifilm’s LTO–6 nor LTO– 7 DI products practice any claim of the ’106 Patent, thus Fujifilm has failed to satisfy the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement with respect to the ’106 Patent. The Final ID also finds that Sony has not shown that the asserted claims of the ’106 Patent are invalid under 35 U.S.C. 102 or 103, but has shown that the asserted claims of the ’106 Patent are indefinite under 35 U.S.C. 112. The Final ID finds that the accused products do not infringe asserted claim 1 of the ’434 under 35 U.S.C. 271(a). The Final ID further finds that Fujifilm’s LTO–7 DI products do not practice any claim of the ’434 Patent, thus Fujifilm has failed to satisfy the technical prong of the domestic industry requirement with respect to the ’434 Patent. The Final ID finds that Sony has not shown that the asserted claims of the ’434 Patent are invalid under 35 U.S.C. 102, 103, or 112.

questions, contact Mr. Luis Aguilar, at (303) 231-3418, or email to 
[email protected]. You may also contact Mr. Aguilar, at no cost, of 
(1) the ICR, (2) any associated forms, and (3) the regulations that 
require us to collect the information. You may view the ICR at http://www.reginfo.gov/public/do/PRAMain and select ``Information Collection 
Review,'' then select ``Department of the Interior'' in the drop-down 
box under ``Currently Under Review.''

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction 
Act of 1995, we provide the general public and other Federal agencies 
with an opportunity to comment on new, proposed, revised, and 
continuing collections of information. This helps us assess the impact 
of our information collection requirements and minimize the public's 
reporting burden. It also helps the public understand our information 
collection requirements and provide the requested data in the desired 
format.
    We published a notice, with a 60-day public comment period 
soliciting comments on this collection of information, in the Federal 
Register on June 19, 2017 (82 FR 27868). We received the following 
comments in response to the notice: ``We respectfully offer the 
following scenario on this process from start to finish: (1) Upon 
demand letter from the ONRR, Fieldwood Energy responds with 
correspondence requesting the ONRR accept Area-Wide Bonds currently 
filed with the BOEM for our various entities, which incidentally total 
excess of $23 million, to secure the nominal Administrative Appeals in 
lieu of separate specific Appeal bonds. It should be noted that none of 
the monetary demands from ONRR have come close to exceeding $1 million; 
(2) In the event, the use of and Area-Wide bond is rejected by ONRR, 
Fieldwood then must approach the commercial surety market to negotiate 
terms with prospective sureties for the amount required by ONRR--this 
may entail the production of recent financial information as well as 
operational plans on Fieldwood leading up to several calls and 
discussions with the surety. This may also require the establishment of 
new relationships with sureties who do not know our company--all of 
which is time consuming and not done overnight; and (3) Ultimately, 
Fieldwood obtains a surety bond and files it with your office. So, it 
is quite customary for this process to take days and not several hours 
of our staff's time.
    ``The two burden hours for the majority of the typical requests 
received are adequate. On some occasions, we might have to have a 
little more internal dialogue or research if we do not have all the 
information for the appeal upfront. Generally, those requests fall in 
the 2-4 hour burden. For the most part, however, 2 hours is generally 
the amount of burden hours needed. There again, for clarification, this 
is the internal burden time for our staff. It would take generally 48-
72 hours for our surety to turn around the request.
    ``For WPX who has an existing surety bond line, 2 hours are 
probably sufficient labor hours. However, for

[[Page 60035]]

companies that do not have bond line or have used up their capacity, 
the amount of time spent securing the security bond could take much 
longer.''
    Once again, we are soliciting comments on this ICR that is 
described below. We are especially interested in public comment 
addressing the following issues: (1) Is the collection necessary to the 
proper functions of ONRR; (2) will this information be processed and 
used in a timely manner; (3) is the estimate of the burden accurate; 
(4) how might ONRR enhance the quality, usefulness, and clarity of the 
information collected; and (5) how might ONRR minimize the burden of 
this collection on the respondents, including through the use of 
information technology.
    Comments that you submit in response to this notice are a matter of 
public record. Before including your Personally Identifiable 
Information (PII), such as your address, phone number, email address, 
or other personal identifying information, in your comment(s), you 
should be aware that your entire comment--including PII--may be made 
available to the public at any time. While you may ask us, in your 
comment, to withhold your PII from public view, we cannot guarantee 
that we will be able to do so.
    Abstract: The Secretary of the United States Department of the 
Interior is responsible for collecting royalties from lessees who 
produce minerals from leased Federal and Indian lands and the Outer 
Continental Shelf (OCS). Under various laws, the Secretary's 
responsibilities are to manage mineral resources production from 
Federal and Indian lands and the OCS, collect the royalties and other 
mineral revenues due, and distribute the funds collected. The Secretary 
also has a trust responsibility to manage Indian lands and seek advice 
and input from Indian beneficiaries. ONRR performs the royalty 
management functions and assists the Secretary in carrying out the 
Department's responsibility for Indian lands. We have posted those laws 
pertaining to mineral leases on Federal and Indian lands and the OCS at 
http://onrr.gov/Laws_R_D/PubLaws/default.htm.

I. General Information

    If ONRR determines that a lessee has not properly reported or paid 
royalties and other mineral revenues, we may issue an order to pay 
additional royalties, a Notice of Noncompliance, or a Civil Penalty 
Notice requiring correct reporting or payment. Lessees then have a 
right to appeal ONRR determinations.
    Implementing regulations at 30 CFR part 1243 govern the suspension 
of orders or decisions and to stay the accrual of civil penalties (if 
the Office of Hearings and Appeals grants a lessee's petition to stay 
accrual of civil penalties), pending administrative appeal for Federal 
leases. These regulations require an appellant to submit information 
demonstrating financial solvency in lieu of providing a surety. For 
those appellants who are not financially solvent or for appeals 
involving Indian leases, ONRR requires appellants to post a surety 
instrument to secure the financial interest of the public and Indian 
lessors during the entire administrative or judicial appeal process. 
This ICR covers the burden hours that appellants incur when submitting 
the financial statements or surety instruments, subject to annual 
audit, that are required to stay an ONRR order, decision, or accrual of 
civil penalties.

II. Information Collections

    Title 30 CFR 1243.1 states that lessees or recipients of ONRR 
orders may suspend compliance with an order if they appeal under 30 CFR 
part 1290. Pending appeal, ONRR may suspend the payment requirement if 
the appellant submits a formal agreement of payment in case of default 
such as a bond or other surety; for Federal oil and gas leases, the 
appellant may demonstrate financial solvency. If the Office of Hearings 
and Appeals grants a lessee's, or other recipient of a Notice of 
Noncompliance or Civil Penalty Notice, request to stay the accrual of 
civil penalties under 30 CFR 1241.55(b)(2) and 1241.63(b)(2), the 
lessee or other recipient must post a bond or other surety, or for 
Federal oil and gas leases, demonstrate financial solvency.
    ONRR accepts the following surety types: form ONRR-4435, 
Administrative Appeal Bond; form ONRR-4436, Letter of Credit; form 
ONRR-4437, Assignment of Certificate of Deposit; Self-bonding; and U.S. 
Treasury Securities.
    When an appellant selects and puts one of the surety types in 
place, the appellant must maintain the surety until completion of the 
appeal. If the appeal is decided in favor of the appellant, ONRR 
returns the surety to the appellant. If the appeal is decided in favor 
of ONRR, then we will take action to collect the total amount due or 
draw down on the surety. We draw down on a surety if the appellant 
fails to comply with requirements relating to the amount due, 
timeframe, or surety submission or resubmission. Whenever ONRR must 
draw down on a surety, we must draw down the total amount due, which is 
defined as unpaid principal plus the interest accrued to the projected 
receipt date of the surety payment. Appellants may refer to the Surety 
Instrument Posting Instructions, which are at http://www.onrr.gov/compliance/appeals.htm.

Forms and Other Surety Types

Form ONRR-4435 [Administrative Appeal Bond]

    Appellants may file form ONRR-4435, Administrative Appeal Bond, 
which ONRR uses to secure the financial interests of the public and 
Indian lessors during the entire administrative and judicial appeal 
process. Under 30 CFR 1243.4, appellants must submit their contact and 
surety amount information on the bond to obtain the benefit of 
suspension of an obligation to comply with an order. A surety company 
that the U.S. Department of the Treasury approves (see Department of 
the Treasury Circular No. 570, as revised periodically in the Federal 
Register) must issue the bond. The ONRR Director or the ONRR-delegated 
bond-approving officer maintains these bonds in a secure facility. 
After the appeal has concluded, ONRR may release and return the bond to 
the appellant or collect payment on the bond. If collection is 
necessary for a remaining balance, ONRR will issue a demand for payment 
to the surety company with a notice to the appellant. We also will 
include all interest accrued on the affected bill.

Form ONRR-4436 [Letter of Credit]

    Appellants may choose to file form ONRR-4436, Letter of Credit 
(LOC), with no modifications. Requirements at 30 CFR 1243.4 continues 
to apply. The ONRR Director or the ONRR-delegated bond-approving 
officer maintains the LOC in a secure facility.
    The appellant is responsible for verifying that the bank provides a 
current Fitch rating to ONRR. After the appeal has been concluded, ONRR 
may release and return the LOC to the appellant or collect payment on 
the LOC. If collection is necessary for a remaining balance, we will 
issue a demand for payment, which includes all interest assessed on the 
affected bill, to the bank with a notice to the appellant.

Form ONRR-4437 [Assignment of Certificate of Deposit]

    Appellants may choose to secure a debt using a Certificate of 
Deposit (CD) from a bank with the required minimum Fitch rating and by 
submitting form ONRR-4437, Assignment of Certificate of Deposit. 
Appellants must file the

[[Page 60036]]

request with ONRR prior to the invoice due date. We will accept a book-
entry CD that explicitly assigns the CD to the Director. If collection 
of the CD is necessary for an unpaid balance, we will return unused CD 
funds to the appellant after total settlement of the appealed issues 
including applicable interest charges.

Self-Bonding

    For Federal oil and gas leases, regulations at 30 CFR 1243.201 
provides that no surety instrument is required when a person 
representing the appellant periodically demonstrates to the 
satisfaction of ONRR, that the guarantor or appellant is financially 
solvent or otherwise able to pay the obligation. Appellants must submit 
a written request to ``self-bond'' every time a new appeal is filed. To 
evaluate the financial solvency and exemption from requirements of 
appellants to maintain a surety related to an appeal, ONRR requires 
appellants to submit a consolidated balance sheet subject to annual 
audit. In some cases, we also require copies of the most recent tax 
returns (up to 3 years) that appellants file.
    In addition, appellants must annually submit financial statements, 
subject to audit, to support their net worth. ONRR uses the 
consolidated balance sheet or business information supplied to evaluate 
the financial solvency of a lessee, designee, or payor seeking a stay 
of payment obligation pending review. If appellants do not have a 
consolidated balance sheet documenting their net worth or if they do 
not meet the $300 million net worth requirement, ONRR selects a 
business information or credit reporting service to provide information 
concerning an appellant's financial solvency. We charge the appellant a 
$50 fee each time we need to review data from a business information or 
credit reporting service. The fee covers our costs in determining an 
appellant's financial solvency.

U.S. Treasury Securities

    Appellants may choose to secure their debts by requesting to use a 
U.S. Treasury Security (TS). Appellants must file the letter of request 
with ONRR prior to the invoice due date. The TS must be a U.S. Treasury 
note or bond with maturity equal to or greater than 1 year. The TS must 
equal 120 percent of the appealed amount plus 1 year of estimated 
interest (necessary to protect ONRR against interest rate 
fluctuations). ONRR only accepts a book-entry TS.

III. OMB Approval

    The information we collect under this ICR is essential in order to 
require response from appellants to suspend compliance with an order 
pending appeal.
    We are requesting OMB's approval to continue to collect this 
information. Not collecting this information would limit the 
Secretary's ability to discharge fiduciary duties and also may result 
in loss of royalty and other payments. ONRR protects the proprietary 
information received and does not collect items of a sensitive nature 
in this ICR.
