Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Primary: Individuals. Individuals who are contractors for the Department of Justice or who are processed for access to classified information by the Department of Justice. Abstract: Self-reporting requirements set forth in the Department of Justice (DOJ) Policy Statement 1700.04, Department Personnel Security Reporting Requirements, issued April 18, 2018, apply to non-federal employee personnel affiliated with the DOJ. The policy contains reporting requirements that are applicable to the entire DOJ workforce as well as reporting requirements that apply only to personnel occupying a national security position or who have access to classified information. The requirements relating to national security are mandated by the Director of National Intelligence as the Security Executive Agent. The majority of the reports relate to the submitter’s personal conduct and activities. There is one form for personnel to submit information on other personnel, consistent with government-wide reporting requirements. This collection request seeks approval for contractors and other non-federal employees who are processed for access to classified information to utilize the Department’s automated reporting system called iReport, or, for the small population with no access to the IT system, to utilize PDF fillable forms to report the required information. The Security and Emergency Planning Staff, and other Department Security Offices, will use the reported information to determine the submitter’s continued fitness for employment at the Department of Justice or continued eligibility for access to national security information. The Department security offices for each VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:17 Aug 23, 2018 Jkt 244001 agency component will review, evaluate, and adjudicate the information received. 5. An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: a. Department-wide population covered by the requirement to selfreport information in the forms listed in Sections 2a and 2b is estimated at 35,000. It is estimated that only three percent (1,050) will actually need to self-report. b. Department-wide population covered by the requirement to report information in the forms listed in Sections 2c through 2l is estimated to less than 500. c. Amount of time estimated for an average reported is less than ten minutes. 6. An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: 260 annual burden hours.

Braswell, Department Clearance Officer, United States Department of Justice, Justice Management Division, Policy and Planning Staff, Two Constitution Square, 145 N Street NE, 3E.405A, Washington, DC 20530.

The NRC received six comment letters on the ‘‘Tribal Policy Statement’’ and the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual.’’ The commenters included two Tribal governments, two mining associations, one inter-Tribal organization, and a Tribal college. The comments were grouped into seven topical areas: (1) NRC Tribal communication; (2) NRC Tribal consultation; (3) NRC Tribal resources; (4) terminology; (5) NRC map of Tribal reservations near nuclear reactors; (6) Federal-Tribal history; and (7) contemporary Tribal conditions. The NRC’s responses to these comments are available in ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff—Comment Responses,’’ which is cited below.

In response to public comments and the NRC’s work on the ‘‘Tribal Policy Statement,’’ the agency is revising the definition of ‘‘consultation.’’ In the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual’’ (p. 16), ‘‘consultation’’ is now defined as ‘‘meaningful and timely discussion with Tribal governments on NRC regulatory actions that have substantial direct effects on one or more Indian Tribes and those regulatory actions for which Tribal consultation is required under Federal statute. The NRC’s Tribal consultation allows Indian Tribes the opportunity to provide input on regulatory actions with Tribal implications and those where Tribal consultation is required, and is different from the outreach and public comment periods.’’ The NRC revised the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual’’ to better address the unique relationship between the United States Government and Tribes and how the NRC exercises its trust responsibility. The NRC also made changes to the historical account of the Federal-Tribal relationship; specifically, the ‘‘Tribal Protocol Manual’’ now includes a general discussion that addresses the contributions of Treaties, policy, law, court decisions, and Executive Orders to Federal Indian law.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Discussion

    On October 12, 2012, the NRC published a notice in the Federal 
Register requesting comment on both the draft ``Tribal Protocol 
Manual'' and the proposed ``Tribal Policy Statement'' (77 FR 62269). 
The NRC received six comment letters on the ``Tribal Policy Statement'' 
and the ``Tribal Protocol Manual.'' The commenters included two Tribal 
governments, two mining associations, one inter-Tribal organization, 
and a Tribal college. The comments were grouped into seven topical 
areas: (1) NRC Tribal communication; (2) NRC Tribal consultation; (3) 
NRC Tribal resources; (4) terminology; (5) NRC map of Tribal 
reservations near nuclear reactors; (6) Federal-Tribal history; and (7) 
contemporary Tribal conditions. The NRC's responses to these comments 
are available in ``Tribal Protocol Manual: Guidance for NRC Staff--
Comment Responses,'' which is cited below.
    On January 9, 2017 (82 FR 2402), the NRC issued its ``Tribal Policy 
Statement.'' The ``Tribal Protocol Manual'' has been revised to be 
consistent with the ``Tribal Policy Statement'' and to reflect changes 
made in response to public comments.
    In response to public comments and the NRC's work on the ``Tribal 
Policy Statement,'' the agency is revising the definition of 
``consultation.'' In the ``Tribal Protocol Manual'' (p. 16), 
``consultation'' is now defined as ``meaningful and timely discussion 
with Tribal governments on NRC regulatory actions that have substantial 
direct effects on one or more Indian Tribes and those regulatory 
actions for which Tribal consultation is required under Federal 
statute. The NRC's Tribal consultation allows Indian Tribes the 
opportunity to provide input on regulatory actions with Tribal 
implications and those where Tribal consultation is required, and is 
different from the outreach and public comment periods.''
    The NRC revised the ``Tribal Protocol Manual'' to better address 
the unique relationship between the United States Government and Tribes 
and how the NRC exercises its trust responsibility. The NRC also made 
changes to the historical account of the Federal-Tribal relationship; 
specifically, the ``Tribal Protocol Manual'' now includes a general 
discussion that addresses the contributions of Treaties, policy, law, 
court decisions, and Executive Orders to Federal Indian law.
