Purpose Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 ‘‘Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors’’ requires the implementation of a governmentwide standard for secure and reliable forms of identification for Federal employees and contractors. VerDate Sep<11>2014 21:34 Oct 12, 2018 Jkt 247001 OMB’s implementing instructions requires all contract employees requiring routine access to federally controlled facilities for greater than six (6) months to receive a background investigation. The minimum background investigation is Tier 1 and the Office of Personnel Management offers a Tier 1C for child care. However, there is no requirement in the law or HSPD–12 that requires child care employees to be subject to the Tier 1C since employees of child care providers are neither government employees nor government contractors. The child care providers are required to complete the criminal history background checks mandated in the Crime Control Act of 1990, Public Law 101–647, dated November 29, 1990, as amended by Public Law 102–190, dated December 5, 1991. These statutes require that each employee of a child care center located in a Federal building or in leased space must undergo a background check. According to GSA policy, child care workers (as described above) will need to submit the following: 1. An original signed copy of a Basic National Agency Check Criminal History, GSA Form 176; and 2. Two sets of fingerprints on FBI Fingerprint Cards, for SF–87 and/or electronic prints from an enrollment center. 3. Electronically submit the e-qip (SF85) application for completion of the Tier 1C. This is not a request to collect new information; this is a request to change the form that is currently being used to collect this information. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 1200. Responses per Respondent: 1. Hours per Response: 1. Total Burden Hours: 1200. C. Public Comments A 60-day notice was published in the Federal Register at 83 FR 32996 on July 12, 2018. No comments were received. Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected.

Comment: AFPM stated that it ‘‘supports the use of data obtained from thorough and objective analysis of industry sector risks, opportunities, and overall performance.’’ AFMP also requested that GSA ‘‘abandon its plan to use CDP data in contract decisions’’ because, in AFPM’s view, CDP’s proprietary scoring methods are unreliable, and using CDP data for contract selection would contradict the intent of E.O. 13783 and constitute a de facto requirement to disclose information to CDP. AFPM recommended that GSA rely instead upon information from a variety of other sources. Response: GSA has no plan to use CDP data for purposes of contract selection or eligibility. GSA plans to use voluntarily provided CDP data, alongside other data sources as recommended by AFPM, as general market research to better inform its business needs, including its needs for products and services which minimize waste and business risks, and to learn more about available products and services that meet these needs. GSA is required by 31 U.S. Code 3512(c)(1)(b) to safeguard Federal assets against waste, loss, and misappropriation.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

A. Purpose

    The CDP Supply Chain Climate Change Information Request is an 
electronic questionnaire designed to collect information pertinent to 
organizations' exposure to energy market and environmental risks. The 
questionnaire is administered by CDP North America, Inc., a 501(c)(3) 
nonprofit organization (``CDP''). CDP administers the questionnaire 
annually to companies on behalf of over 650 institutional investors and 
over 100 major purchasing corporations and governmental purchasing 
organizations. In accordance with 31 U.S. Code 3512(c)(1)(b), GSA will 
use the information collected via this questionnaire to inform and 
develop purchasing policies and contract requirements necessary to 
safeguard Federal assets against waste, loss, and misappropriation 
resulting from unmitigated exposure to energy market and environmental 
risks.

B. Annual Burden Hours

    Frequency: Annual.
    Affected Public: Federal contractors.
    Number of Respondents: 250.
    Responses per Respondent: 1.
    Total Annual Responses: 250.
    Estimated Time per Respondent: 4.8 hrs.
    Total Burden Hours: 1210.

C. Discussion and Analysis

    A notice was published in the Federal Register at 83 FR 32298 on 
July 12, 2018. One comment was received. The American Fuel and 
Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) submitted the only comment to that 
notice.
    Comment: AFPM stated that it ``supports the use of data obtained 
from thorough and objective analysis of industry sector risks, 
opportunities, and overall performance.'' AFMP also requested that GSA 
``abandon its plan to use CDP data in contract decisions'' because, in 
AFPM's view, CDP's proprietary scoring methods are unreliable, and 
using CDP data for contract selection would contradict the intent of 
E.O. 13783 and constitute a de facto requirement to disclose 
information to CDP. AFPM recommended that GSA rely instead upon 
information from a variety of other sources.
    Response: GSA has no plan to use CDP data for purposes of contract 
selection or eligibility. GSA plans to use voluntarily provided CDP 
data, alongside other data sources as recommended by AFPM, as general 
market research to better inform its business needs, including its 
needs for products and services which minimize waste and business 
risks, and to learn more about available products and services that 
meet these needs. GSA is required by 31 U.S. Code 3512(c)(1)(b) to 
safeguard Federal assets against waste, loss, and misappropriation. GSA 
is also required by E.O. 13834 (signed May 17, 2018) to meet statutory 
requirements ``in a manner that increases efficiency, optimizes 
performance, eliminates unnecessary use of resources, and protects the 
environment'' and to ``reduce waste, cut costs, [and] enhance the 
resilience of Federal infrastructure and operations.'' E.O. 13834, 
Efficient Federal Operations, 83 FR 23771. This collection will provide 
GSA with a variety of information needed to implement these mandates to 
reduce waste and minimize risks of disruption to critical operations. 
Given these considerations, GSA does not believe changes to the 
Information Collection Request (ICR) are appropriate.

Public Comments

    Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this 
collection of information is necessary, whether it will have practical 
utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this collection 
of information is accurate, and based on valid assumptions and 
methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the 
information to be collected; and ways in which we can minimize the 
burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, 
through the use of appropriate technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.
