SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Comments Invited

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it

available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. 
Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following 
information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;

    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those

of information technology.
    Consistent with the requirements of Executive Order (E.O.) 13771, 
Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs, and E.O. 13777, 
Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, TSA is also requesting comments 
on the extent to which this request for information could be modified 
to reduce the burden on respondents.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0039; TSA Claims Application, previously 
named the TSA Claims Management Branch Program, allows the agency to 
collect information from claimants in order to thoroughly examine and 
resolve tort claims against the agency. TSA is revising the collection 
by changing the name from ``TSA Claims Management Branch Program'' to 
``TSA Claims Application.'' TSA receives approximately 850 tort claims 
per month arising from airport screening activities and other 
circumstances, including motor vehicle accidents and employee loss. The 
Federal Tort Claims Act (28 U.S.C. 1346(b), 1402(b), 2401(b), 2671-
2680) is the authority under which the TSA Claims, Outreach and Debt 
Branch adjudicates tort claims.
    The data is collected whenever an individual believes s/he has 
experienced property loss or damage, a personal injury, or other 
damages due to the negligence or wrongful act or omission of a TSA 
employee, and decides to file a Federal tort claim against TSA. 
Submission of a claim is entirely voluntary and initiated by 
individuals. The claimants (or respondents) to this collection are 
typically the traveling public. Currently, claimants file a claim by 
submitting to TSA a Standard Form 95 (SF-95), which has been approved 
under OMB control number 1105-0008. Because TSA requires further 
clarifying information, claimants are asked to complete a Supplemental 
Information page added to the SF-95. If TSA determines payment is 
warranted, TSA will send the claimant a form requesting banking 
information (routing and accounting numbers) in order to direct payment 
to the claimant. This form has been approved under OMB control number 
1652-0039.
    Claim instructions and forms are available through the TSA website 
at http://www.tsa.gov. Claimants must download these forms and mail or 
fax them to TSA. On the Supplemental Information page, claimants are 
asked to provide additional claim information including: (1) Email 
address, (2) airport, (3) location of incident within the airport, (4) 
complete travel itinerary, (5) whether baggage was delayed by the 
airline, (6) why they believe TSA was negligent, (7) whether they used 
a third-party baggage service, (8) whether they were traveling under 
military orders, and (9) whether they submitted claims with the airline 
or insurance companies.
    If TSA determines payment is warranted, TSA sends the claimant a 
form requesting: (1) Claimant signature, (2) banking information, and 
(3) Social Security number (required by the U.S. Treasury for all 
Government payments to the public pursuant to 31 U.S.C. 3325).
    Under the current system of claims submitted by mail or fax, TSA 
estimates there will be approximately 10,200 respondents on an annual 
basis, for a total annual hour burden of 5,300 hours.
