SUMMARY: 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 Federal Register notice with a 60-day public comment period soliciting comments on this SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00052 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 43893 collection of information on May 11, 2018 (83 FR 22097). We received one public comment in response to this notice. This public comment represented the consolidate feedback for 130 Service and Conservation Crops. Here are specific comments and our responses to the comments: Comment: Is the collection necessary to the proper functions of the Office of the Secretary, Department of the Interior? While information on our partnerships is important, we believe data around project accomplishments, outcomes, funding, and number of Corpsmembers engaged etc. is already covered through reporting to one of the DOI units, states, regions, or national DOI bureau offices and could be compiled through existing information sources. If this is the level of information envisioned through the Partnerships Module, we encourage DOI to examine internal processes and existing information collection that could be streamlined or revised to provide this data. We hope other Federal land management agencies will adopt this same approach of a unified data collection system by utilizing this new system DOI is developing, and also examine existing internal data sources before requiring new information collection and reporting which may be duplicative. Answer: This is a valid point and DOI does establish with this collection a single system of record as mandatory. Furthermore, modernization of portal technology will allow for importing, exporting and sharing by internal sources before validation and use by external partners. Additionally, DOI will offer this portal as a shared service to other federal agencies so end user/ respondents input will be not duplicative and redundant for same purposes. Comment: With respect to the Stewards Engagement Portal, we support an electronic and uniform system to collect information to determine eligibility for NCE. Presently, different DOI bureaus have different rules around qualifying for PLC NCE, making it confusing for our Corps and even more so for our Corpsmembers. The ability to upload information once, toward the end of a term of service, would be important to minimize the time burden. As to the desire to collect from PLC Corpsmembers ‘‘agency work for, partner organization, project dates, where the work was completed, and total hours worked on the specific project,’’ it would be useful to have a profile for each partner organization and Corpsmember on the new system that E:\FR\FM\28AUN1.SGM 28AUN1
