SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On June 15, 1984, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) delegated to the Board authority under the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) to approve and assign OMB control numbers to collection of information requests and requirements conducted or sponsored by the Board. In exercising this delegated authority, the Board is directed to take every reasonable step to solicit comment.

Agency form number: FR 27. OMB control number: 7100–new. Frequency: As needed. Respondents: Individuals. Estimated number of respondents: Regular Hires: 312; Intern Hires: 122; Federal Transfers: 10. Estimated average hours per response: Regular Hires: 1; Intern Hires: 0.75; Federal Transfers: 1.08. Estimated annual burden hours: 414.3. General description of report: This information collection would provide for the electronic collection of certain personnel information from new hires using a secure web-based portal, the ‘‘New Hire Portal,’’ before the first day of employment of a new hire. In this way, the Board is proposing to streamline the collection of personnel information from new hires so that much of the information previously collected in hardcopy format from new employees on their first day of employment would be submitted electronically by new hires through the secure web-based New Hire Portal before they become employees of the Board. Currently, information is collected from new employees during the Board’s New Employee Orientation (‘‘NEO’’) in VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:17 Dec 14, 2018 Jkt 247001 order to complete certain employee onboarding tasks, such as compensation, conduct security/background checks, set-up computer log-in profiles, establish applicable tax withholdings, determine benefits, identify dependents, and related purposes. Such personnel information currently is submitted by new employees on hardcopy forms during or after NEO. Accordingly, the information collected under the Board’s current process is not subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (‘‘PRA’’), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., because information is only provided to the Board after the respondent has become a Board employee. However, under the proposal, such personnel information predominantly would be collected electronically from new hires through the New Hire Portal before the new hire becomes an employee of the Board. Therefore, the requirements of the PRA would apply to the information collection. As part of the onboarding process for new hires, a Human Resources (‘‘HR’’) professional at the Board would identify the necessary information that must be collected from the new hire, which is dependent upon whether the person will be starting as an Intern or starting as a full- or part-time employee, including as a Governor or Board officer (hereinafter, ‘‘Regular Employee’’), and whether the Regular Employee is transferring from another federal agency (‘‘Federal Transfer’’). The new hire would then be sent an email asking him or her to provide the personnel information, described below, through the New Hire Portal prior to their official start date. Legal authorization and confidentiality: The information collected as part of the New Hire Information Collection is authorized pursuant to sections 10(3), 10(4), 11(l), and 11(q) of the Federal Reserve Act, which provides the Board broad authority over employment of staff and security of its building, as well as the authority to determine and prescribe the manner in which its obligations shall be incurred and its expenses allowed and paid (12 U.S.C. 243, 244, 248(l), and 248(q)). In addition, Executive Order 9397 (November 22, 1943) authorizes Federal agencies to use an individual’s social security number to identify individuals in agency records. Providing the information collected as part of the New Hire Information Collection is voluntary. However, if certain information requested as part of the New Hire Information Collection is not provided, then the Board cannot complete the hiring process. PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Generally, information collected as part of the New Hire Information Collection will be kept confidential from the public under exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the extent that the disclosure of the information ‘‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy’’ (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)). For example, the release of information such as the new hire’s date of birth, home address, home telephone number, or social security numbers to the public would likely constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and be kept confidential. However, the release of information such as the educational history of the new hire or the start date of employment would not likely constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and may be disclosed under the FOIA. Determinations regarding disclosure to third parties of any confidential portions of the information collection that are considered exempt under the FOIA will be made in accordance with the Privacy Act, 5 U.S.C. 552a(b). Relevant Privacy Act statements are provided when a respondent logs in to the portal and before the respondent is asked to provide any information. The Board may make disclosures in accordance with the Privacy Act’s routine use disclosure provision, 5 U.S.C. 552a(a)(7) and (b)(3)), which permits the disclosure of a record for a purpose which is compatible with the purpose for which the record was collected. Such routine uses are listed in the specific systems of records notices, which apply to this information collection and which can be found in: (1) The System of Records Notice for BGFRS–1, FRB–Recruiting and Placement Records, located here: https://www.federalreserve.gov/files/ BGFRS-1-recruiting-and-placementrecords.pdf; (2) the System of Records Notice for BGFRS–4, FRB–General Personnel Records, located here: https:// www.federalreserve.gov/files/BGFRS-4general-personnel-records.pdf; (3) the System of Records Notice for BGFRS–7, FRB—Payroll and Leave Records, located here: https:// www.federalreserve.gov/files/BGFRS-7payroll-and-leave-records.pdf; (4) the System of Records Notice for BGFRS– 24, FRB—EEO General Files, located here: https://www.federalreserve.gov/ files/BGFRS-24-eeo-general-files.pdf; and/or (5) the System of Records Notice for BGFRS–34, FRB–ESS Staff Identification Card File, located here: https://www.federalreserve.gov/files/ E:\FR\FM\17DEN1.SGM 17DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 241 / Monday, December 17, 2018 / Notices BGFRS-34-ess-staff-identification-cardfile.pdf.

Proposal Under OMB Delegated Authority To Implement the Following 
Information Collection

    Report title: New Hire Information Collection.
    Agency form number: FR 27.
    OMB control number: 7100-new.
    Frequency: As needed.
    Respondents: Individuals.
    Estimated number of respondents: Regular Hires: 312; Intern Hires: 
122; Federal Transfers: 10.
    Estimated average hours per response: Regular Hires: 1; Intern 
Hires: 0.75; Federal Transfers: 1.08.
    Estimated annual burden hours: 414.3.
    General description of report: This information collection would 
provide for the electronic collection of certain personnel information 
from new hires using a secure web-based portal, the ``New Hire 
Portal,'' before the first day of employment of a new hire. In this 
way, the Board is proposing to streamline the collection of personnel 
information from new hires so that much of the information previously 
collected in hardcopy format from new employees on their first day of 
employment would be submitted electronically by new hires through the 
secure web-based New Hire Portal before they become employees of the 
Board.
    Currently, information is collected from new employees during the 
Board's New Employee Orientation (``NEO'') in order to complete certain 
employee on-boarding tasks, such as compensation, conduct security/
background checks, set-up computer log-in profiles, establish 
applicable tax withholdings, determine benefits, identify dependents, 
and related purposes. Such personnel information currently is submitted 
by new employees on hardcopy forms during or after NEO. Accordingly, 
the information collected under the Board's current process is not 
subject to the Paperwork Reduction Act (``PRA''), 44 U.S.C. 3501 et 
seq., because information is only provided to the Board after the 
respondent has become a Board employee. However, under the proposal, 
such personnel information predominantly would be collected 
electronically from new hires through the New Hire Portal before the 
new hire becomes an employee of the Board. Therefore, the requirements 
of the PRA would apply to the information collection.
    As part of the onboarding process for new hires, a Human Resources 
(``HR'') professional at the Board would identify the necessary 
information that must be collected from the new hire, which is 
dependent upon whether the person will be starting as an Intern or 
starting as a full- or part-time employee, including as a Governor or 
Board officer (hereinafter, ``Regular Employee''), and whether the 
Regular Employee is transferring from another federal agency (``Federal 
Transfer''). The new hire would then be sent an email asking him or her 
to provide the personnel information, described below, through the New 
Hire Portal prior to their official start date.
    Legal authorization and confidentiality: The information collected 
as part of the New Hire Information Collection is authorized pursuant 
to sections 10(3), 10(4), 11(l), and 11(q) of the Federal Reserve Act, 
which provides the Board broad authority over employment of staff and 
security of its building, as well as the authority to determine and 
prescribe the manner in which its obligations shall be incurred and its 
expenses allowed and paid (12 U.S.C. 243, 244, 248(l), and 248(q)). In 
addition, Executive Order 9397 (November 22, 1943) authorizes Federal 
agencies to use an individual's social security number to identify 
individuals in agency records.
    Providing the information collected as part of the New Hire 
Information Collection is voluntary. However, if certain information 
requested as part of the New Hire Information Collection is not 
provided, then the Board cannot complete the hiring process.
    Generally, information collected as part of the New Hire 
Information Collection will be kept confidential from the public under 
exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) to the extent that 
the disclosure of the information ``would constitute a clearly 
unwarranted invasion of personal privacy'' (5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6)). For 
example, the release of information such as the new hire's date of 
birth, home address, home telephone number, or social security numbers 
to the public would likely constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of 
personal privacy and be kept confidential. However, the release of 
information such as the educational history of the new hire or the 
start date of employment would not likely constitute a clearly 
unwarranted invasion of personal privacy and may be disclosed under the 
FOIA.
    Determinations regarding disclosure to third parties of any 
confidential portions of the information collection that are considered 
exempt under the FOIA will be made in accordance with the Privacy Act, 
5 U.S.C. 552a(b). Relevant Privacy Act statements are provided when a 
respondent logs in to the portal and before the respondent is asked to 
provide any information. The Board may make disclosures in accordance 
with the Privacy Act's routine use disclosure provision, 5 U.S.C. 
552a(a)(7) and (b)(3)), which permits the disclosure of a record for a 
purpose which is compatible with the purpose for which the record was 
collected. Such routine uses are listed in the specific systems of 
records notices, which apply to this information collection and which 
can be found in: (1) The System of Records Notice for BGFRS-1, FRB-
