B. Submitting Comments The NRC cautions you not to include identifying or contact information in comment submissions that you do not want to be publicly disclosed in your comment submission. All comment submissions are posted at http:// www.regulations.gov and entered into ADAMS. Comment submissions are not routinely edited to remove identifying or contact information. If you are requesting or aggregating comments from other persons for submission to the OMB, then you should inform those persons not to include identifying or contact information that they do not want to be publicly disclosed in their comment submission. Your request should state that comment submissions are not routinely edited to remove such information before making the comment submissions available to the public or entering the comment into ADAMS. 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, ‘‘Nuclear Material Events Database (NMED) for the Collection of Event Report, Response, Analyses, and Follow-Up Data on Events Involving the Use of Atomic Energy Act (AEA) Radioactive Byproduct Material.’’ The NRC hereby informs potential respondents that an agency may not VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:22 Mar 13, 2019 Jkt 247001 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 September 10, 2018 (83 FR 45695). 1. The title of the information collection: ‘‘Nuclear Material Events Database (NMED) for the Collection of Event Report, Response, Analyses, and Follow-up Data on Events Involving the Use of Atomic Energy Act (AEA) Radioactive Byproduct Material.’’ 2. OMB approval number: 3150–0178. 3. Type of submission: Extension. 4. The form number if applicable: NA. 5. How often the collection is required or requested: Agreement States are requested to provide copies of licensee nuclear material event reports electronically or by hard copy to the NRC within 30 days of receipt from their licensee. In addition, Agreement States are requested to report events that may pose a significant health and safety hazard to the NRC Headquarters Operations Officer within 24 hours of notification by an Agreement State licensee. 6. Who will be required or asked to respond: Current Agreement States and any State receiving Agreement State status in the future. 7. The estimated number of annual responses: 450. 8. The estimated number of annual respondents: 39. 9. An estimate of the total number of hours needed annually to comply with the information collection requirement or request: 720 hours. 10. Abstract: NRC regulations require NRC licensees to report incidents and overexposures, leaking or contaminated sealed source(s), release of excessive contamination of radioactive material, lost or stolen radioactive material, equipment failures, abandoned well logging sources and medical events. Agreement State licenses are also required to report these events to their individual Agreement State regulatory authorities under compatible Agreement State regulations. The NRC is requesting that the Agreement States provide information to NRC on the initial notification, response actions, and follow-up investigations on events involving the use (including suspected theft or terrorist activities) of nuclear materials regulated pursuant to the Atomic Energy Act. The event information should be provided in a uniform electronic format, for assessment and identification of any facilities/site specific or generic safety concerns that could have the potential PO 00000 Frm 00101 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to impact public health and safety. The identification and review of safety concerns may result in lessons learned, and may also identify generic issues for further study which could result in proposals for changes or revisions to technical or regulatory designs, processes, standards, guidance or requirements.

ACTION: Notice of intent to execute quick closeout procedures.

OPIC seeks to facilitate the closeout of these actions by requesting all OPIC contractors with contracts identified on this list submit any outstanding invoices. DATES: For the contract actions listed herein, interested parties must submit all outstanding invoices within 60 days after publication of this notice. ADDRESSES: Mail all comments, questions or invoices in response to this notice to Anthony Terrell, Overseas Private Investment Corporation, 1100 New York Avenue NW, Washington, DC 20527.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Anthony Terrell, Office of Acquisitions, Overseas Private Investment Corporation, 1100 New York Ave. NW, Washington, DC 20527, 202–357–3960; anthony.terrell@opic.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Overseas Private Investment Corporation (OPIC) currently has contracts that are considered over-age, as the period of performance or final delivery date of these actions have expired and the standard time allowed for contract file closeout has elapsed. OPIC developed procedures that would enable the Agency to closeout these elapsed actions in an efficient and costeffective manner. These procedures required the Agency to identify those expired contracts that could more easily be closed out based on certain criteria. The identified contracts not only pose a significant burden to various acquisition and financial systems, but they also impede OPIC’s ongoing efforts to strengthen and modernize its financial management practices. One of these modernization practices involves transitioning to a new contract writing system, which involves the conversion of financial data for all OPIC contract actions that are active. The procedures OPIC developed to significantly reduce the number of expired contracts with unliquidated funds will enable OPIC to expeditiously close these actions. OPIC developed the procedures using riskbased management principles by first identifying and classifying open, expired contracts as low-risk based on the following criteria: (i) The contract has a period of performance that expired prior to Sept. 30, 2016; (ii) the contract expired and the additional time allowed for contract file closeout under FAR 4.804–1(a) has elapsed; and (iii) the contract had no invoice or payment activity within the past 12 months.
