VS develops rosters with course participants’ names and contact information to notify them of future training courses and to encourage contact among participants throughout their careers. We are asking the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) to approve our use of these information collection activities for an additional 3 years. The purpose of this notice is to solicit comments from the public (as well as affected agencies) concerning our information collection. These comments will help us: (1) Evaluate whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of our estimate of the burden of the collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; (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 who are to respond, through use, as appropriate, of automated, electronic, mechanical, and other collection technologies; e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses. Estimate of Burden: The public burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.33 hours per response. Respondents: State, Tribal, international, university, and industry personnel. Estimated Annual Number of Respondents: 350. Estimated Annual Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Annual Number of Responses: 350. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 116 hours. (Due to averaging, the total annual burden hours may not equal the product of the annual number of responses multiplied by the reporting burden per response.) All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the request for OMB approval. All comments will also become a matter of public record.
