Download as PDF amozie on DSK3GDR082PROD with NOTICES1 63686 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 237 / Tuesday, December 11, 2018 / Notices Council’s Subcommittee on Quantum Information Science ‘‘National Strategic Overview for Quantum Information Science’’ (hereafter ‘‘Strategic Overview’’) was released in September 2018. This document calls upon agencies to develop plans to address six key policy areas to enable continued American leadership in quantum information science. On behalf of Federal agencies the NSTC Subcommittee on Quantum Information Science seeks public input to inform the subcommittee as the Government develops potential means of addressing the specific policy recommendations included in the ‘‘Strategic Overview’’. Responders are asked to answer one or more of the following questions: 1. What specific actions could the US Government take that would contribute best to implementing the policy recommendations in the Strategic Overview? What challenges, not listed in section 3, should also be taken into account in implementation of the Strategic Overview recommendations? 2. What are the scientific and technological challenges that, with substantial resources and focus over the next ten years, will transform the QIS research and development landscape? 3. Regarding industrial engagement, what roles can the U.S. Government play in enabling the innovation ecosystem around QIS-related technologies? Are there critical barriers for industrial innovation in this space? How can these barriers be addressed? What role can the U.S. Government play in mitigating early or premature investment risks? 4. How can the U.S. Government engage with academia and other workforce development programs and stakeholders to appropriately train and maintain researchers in QIS while expanding the size and scope of the ‘quantum-smart’ workforce? 5. What existing infrastructure should be leveraged, and what new infrastructure could be considered, to foster future breakthroughs in QIS research and development? 6. What other activities/partnerships could the U.S. Government use to engage with stakeholders to ensure America’s prosperity and economic growth through QIS research and development? 7. How can the United States continue to attract and retain the best domestic and international talent and expertise in QIS? 8. How can the United States ensure that US researchers in QIS have access to cutting-edge international technologies, research facilities, and knowledge?

II. Background

    Under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 
U.S.C. Chapter 35), the NRC recently submitted a request for renewal of 
an existing collection of information to OMB for review entitled, ``NRC 
Form 748, National Source Tracking Transaction Report.'' The NRC hereby 
informs potential respondents that an agency may not conduct or 
sponsor, and that a person is not required to respond to, a collection 
of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number.
    The NRC published a Federal Register notice with a 60-day comment 
period on this information collection on August 1, 2018, 83 FR 37535.
    1. The title of the information collection: NRC Form 748, National 
Source Tracking Transaction Report.
    2. OMB approval number: 3150-0202.
    3. Type of submission: Extension.
    4. The form number if applicable: NRC Form 748.
    5. How often the collection is required or requested: On occasion 
(at completion of a transaction, and at inventory reconciliation).
    6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Licensees that 
manufacture, receive, transfer, disassemble, or dispose of nationally 
tracked sources.
    7. The estimated number of annual responses: 18,927 (13,200 online 
+ 480 batch upload + 5,247 NRC Form 748).
    8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 1,400 (260 NRC 
Licensees + 1,140 Agreement State Licensees).
    9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to
