SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks PRA authority for the National Childcare Costs Database information jspears on DSK30JT082PROD with NOTICES SUMMARY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:46 Jul 10, 2019 Jkt 247001 collection. The creation of a comprehensive and publicly available data source for childcare prices will provide a more comprehensive picture of the cost of childcare at the local level in the United States. Because data are collected within local areas, childcare prices will more accurately reflect the prices parents pay in the market, rather than estimates derived from state averages. This data source will be used to show how, who, and where childcare prices are impacting labor force participation, and allow government agencies, practitioners, and policymakers to more accurately measure potential economic impacts and identify strategies for enhancing employment options and economic security for women. Women’s Bureau Act of 1920 section 3 authorizes this information collection. See 29 U.S.C. 13. This proposed information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information if the collection of information does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 1320.6. For additional information, see the related notice published in the Federal Register on December 26, 2018 (83 FR 66309). Interested parties are encouraged to send comments to the OMB, Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs at the address shown in the ADDRESSES section within thirty (30) days of publication of this notice in the Federal Register. In order to help ensure appropriate consideration, comments should mention OMB ICR Reference Number 201811–1290–002. The OMB is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used; • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 33091 • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: This ICR seeks to extend PRA authorization 
for the Pharmacy Billing Requirements information collection. The OWCP 
is the agency responsible for administration of the Federal Employees' 
Compensation Act (FECA), 5 U.S.C. 8101 et seq.; the Black Lung Benefits 
Act (BLBA), 30 U.S.C. 901 et seq.; and the Energy Employees 
Occupational Illness Compensation Program Act of 2000 (EEOICPA), 42 
U.S.C. 7384 et seq. All three of these statutes require the OWCP to pay 
for covered medical treatment provided to beneficiaries; this medical 
treatment can include medicinal drugs dispensed by pharmacies. In order 
to determine whether amounts billed for drugs are appropriate, the OWCP 
must receive the required data elements--including the name of the 
patient/beneficiary, the National Drug Code number of each drug 
prescribed, the quantity provided, the prescription number, and the 
date the prescription was filled. The regulations implementing these 
statutes require the collection of information needed to enable the 
OWCP to determine whether bills for drugs submitted directly by 
pharmacies or as reimbursement requests submitted by claimants should 
be paid. See 20 CFR 10.801, 30.701, 725.701, and 725.705. FECA section 
9, BLBA section 413, and EEOICPA section 3629(c) authorize this 
information collection. See 5 U.S.C. 8103, 30 U.S.C. 936, and 42 U.S.C. 
7384t.
    This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency 
generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and 
the public is generally not required to respond to an information 
collection, unless it is approved by the OMB under the PRA and displays 
a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any 
other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to 
penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that 
does not display a valid Control Number. See 5 CFR 1320.5(a) and 
1320.6. The DOL obtains OMB approval for this information collection 
under Control Number 1240-0050.
    OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) 
years without renewal, and the current approval for this collection is 
scheduled to expire on September 30, 2019. The DOL seeks to extend PRA 
authorization for this information collection for three (3) more years, 
without any change to existing requirements. The DOL notes that 
existing information collection requirements submitted to the OMB 
receive a month-to-month extension while they undergo review. For 
additional substantive information about this ICR, see the related 
notice published in the Federal Register on March 1, 2019 (84 FR 7133).
