Download as PDF 16129 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 72 / Friday, April 13, 2018 / Notices delivery, we will field an electronic survey to up to 96 grantees. This survey will include questions to lead to insights about variations across grantees and grant programs and contextualize the data from the impact and implementation studies. * Impact feasibility site visit protocols. The evaluation team will conduct up to 42 site visits with grantees and/or their subgrantees to explore the feasibility of their participating in the impact study; the visits will average no more than one day. * Baseline information form (BIF). In sites selected for the impact study, applicants will complete a BIF before random assignment. The BIF will take about 10 minutes to complete and will collect demographics; information about education, work history and other experiences; and contact information. Whenever possible, BIFs will be collected electronically through the study’s web-based system for random assignment. Data entry for each BIF will take about 10 minutes to complete. The • enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and • minimize the burden of the information collection on respondents, including 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). III. Current Actions: At this time, DOL is requesting clearance for the implementation study grantee survey; site visit protocol for the impact study feasibility assessment; and BIF to be entered into the random assignment system. Type of Review: New information collection request. Title: Reentry Employment Opportunities Evaluation. OMB Control Number: 1290–0NEW. Affected Public: REO program staff, evaluation participants, and partner agencies. system will then randomly assign participants and monitor the integrity of the random assignment process. A future information collection request will include the impact study’s follow-up survey, as well as phone interview protocols, site visit protocols, and virtual focus group protocols for the implementation study. II. Desired Focus of Comments: Currently, DOL is soliciting comments concerning the above data collection for the REO Evaluation. DOL is particularly interested in comments that do the following: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency related to employer services, including whether the information will have practical utility; • evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the ICR to survey and fieldwork respondents, including the validity of the study approach and assumptions used; ESTIMATED BURDEN HOURS Total number of respondents Type of instrument Annual number of respondents a Number of responses per respondent Average burden hour per response Annual estimated burden hours a Grantee Survey b ..................................................................

The team anticipates completing up to 42 visits in total, with some sites being visited once and some being visited twice. The average burden time per response will be 1 hour, although some meetings will be shorter and some will be longer. To account for the fact that a subset of sites will receive two visits, the number of responses per respondent is calculated as 1.68. d The total number of respondents is 3,780 participants who will complete the BIF. This assumes the baseline information forms (BIF) will take an average of 10 minutes for participants to complete. e Study participants will respond to the BIF once. Each program staff will be responsible for data entering approximately 126 BIFs into the RAS. The total burden represents the sum of the participant burden across participants and program staff (3,780 participants * 1 response * .17 of an hour = 643 burden hours) + (30 program staff * 126 responses to data enter * .17 of an hour = 643 burden hours) for a grand total, with rounding,of 1,285 burden hours (which equates to approximately 428 annual burden hours per the three years of the study). b The daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES Comments submitted in response to this comment request will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval of the information collection request; they will also become a matter of public record.

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 daltland on DSKBBV9HB2PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:41 Apr 12, 2018 Jkt 244001 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 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 May 14, 2018. 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 PO 00000 Frm 00087 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 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 of these update previously approved schedules, and some include records proposed as permanent. The schedules listed in this notice are media neutral unless otherwise specified. An item in a schedule is media neutral when an agency may apply the disposition instructions to records regardless of the medium in which it creates or maintains the records. Items included in schedules submitted to NARA on or after December 17, 2007, are media neutral unless the item is expressly limited to a specific medium. (See 36 CFR 1225.12(e).) Agencies may not destroy Federal records without Archivist of the United States’ approval. The Archivist approves destruction only after thoroughly considering the records’ administrative use by the agency of origin, the rights of the Government and of private people directly affected by the Government’s activities, and whether or not the records have historical or other value. In addition to identifying the Federal agencies and any subdivisions requesting disposition authority, this notice lists the organizational unit(s) accumulating the records (or notes that the schedule has agency-wide applicability when schedules cover records that may be accumulated throughout an agency); provides the control number assigned to each schedule, the total number of schedule items, and the number of temporary items (the records proposed for destruction); and includes a brief description of the temporary records. The records schedule itself contains a full description of the records at the file unit level as well as their disposition. If NARA staff has prepared an appraisal memorandum for the schedule, it also includes information about the records. You may request additional information about the disposition process at the addresses above. Schedules Pending 1. Department of Agriculture, Foreign Agricultural Service (DAA–0166–2018– 0003, 2 items, 2 temporary items). Federal Register records. Included are correspondence, reports, notices, proposed rules, final rules, and announcements. 2. Department of Agriculture, Foreign Agricultural Service (DAA–0166–2018– 0029, 2 items, 2 temporary items). E:\FR\FM\13APN1.SGM 13APN1
