Download as PDF amozie on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES 8900 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 41 / Thursday, March 1, 2018 / Notices of People with Disabilities information collection to examine employer perceptions of their efforts to employ individuals with disabilities. Knowing this information will enhance the ability of the ODEP to engage employers on how to hire, retain, and promote individuals with disabilities. The ODEP has the ability to reach out to employers through its public education campaigns and technical assistance centers, as well as engage the business community directly. Assessing employer attitudes towards hiring and retaining individuals with disabilities will increase the ODEP’s understanding of employer successes and concerns, as well as more effectively to share best practices in hiring, retaining, and promoting individuals with disabilities. This study will answer research questions with regard to current employer practices and attitudes towards employment of people with disabilities (disability employment’); barriers and facilitators of disability employment; the impact of accommodations and technology on employer perceptions and attitudes towards disability employment; and sources of disability employmentrelated information for employers. Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2001 section Appendix A–HR 5656 authorizes this information collection. See Public Law 106–554. This proposed 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 if the collection of information does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on May 23, 2017 (82 FR 23607).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authority for the Telephone Point of Purchase Survey (TPOPS) information collection. The BLS administers the survey quarterly via a computer-assisted-telephoneinterview. This survey is flexible and creates the possibility of introducing new products into the CPI in a timely manner. The data collected in this survey are necessary for the continuing construction of a current outlet universe from which locations are selected for the price collection needed for calculating the CPI. Furthermore, the TPOPS provides the weights used in selecting the items that are priced at these establishments. This sample design produces an overall CPI market basket that is more reflective of the prices faced and the establishments visited by urban consumers. The BLS Authorizing Statute authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 2. 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. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection under Control Number 1220–0044. The current approval is scheduled to expire on March 31, 2018; however, the DOL notes that existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review.
