Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 137 / Wednesday, July 17, 2019 / Notices Appeals Office also will notify Census Bureau staff of the filed appeal. jbell on DSK3GLQ082PROD with NOTICES E. Documentation and Supporting Evidence Provided by the Census Bureau For both the 2000 Census and the 2010 Census, the LUCA appeals process afforded 15 calendar days for the Census Bureau to provide information to the LUCA Appeals Office to support the determination made for an address or group of addresses. For the 2020 Census LUCA Appeals process, the Census Bureau has decided to provide proactively to the LUCA Appeals Office staff read-only access to all documentation supporting the address determination made by the Census Bureau. This will include read-only access to the LUCA production control system, the LUCA master table, and each participating government’s LUCA Feedback material. For this reason, the 15-day period for the Census Bureau to provide any additional information to support its determination is no longer necessary. F. The Appeals Review and Final Decision Process The Appeals Process will be administered by staff in the 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Office. The 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Office will operate for approximately 15 months as a temporary Federal entity and will include Appeals Officers who are trained in the procedures for processing an appeal and in the examination and analysis of address information, locations of addresses and housing units, and supporting materials. For each appeal, the 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Officers will review the Census Bureau’s feedback materials and the written explanation and supporting evidence submitted by the eligible government, and any materials supplied by the Census Bureau. No testimony or oral argument will be received by the 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Office. The 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Officers will apply the following principles in conducting their review: (1) The Appeals Officer shall consider the quality of the supporting evidence provided by the eligible government as the basis for determining the validity of an address (or group of addresses) and its (their) location(s). Indicators demonstrating quality of supporting evidence may include, but are not limited to, timeliness, update methods and frequency of update, provenance, and congruence with other sources. For example, useful supporting evidence may include, but would not be limited to, local data sources like recent VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:05 Jul 16, 2019 Jkt 247001 documentation of an on-site inspection, aerial photography, or a provision of utilities to the residence. (2) For any address for which the Appeals Officer determines that the quality of the supporting evidence supplied by the eligible government and the Census Bureau is of equal weight, the Appeals Officer shall decide in favor of the eligible government. (3) For any address submitted by more than one governmental entity for which the Appeals Officer determines the quality of the supporting evidence submitted by both parties is of equal weight, the Appeals Officer will decide in favor of the lower level of government. At the conclusion of the review of an appealed address (or group of appealed addresses), the Appeals Officer will prepare a draft written analysis for review by the Director or Deputy Director of the 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Office. The Director or Deputy Director will issue a written final determination to both the eligible government and the Census Bureau. The written final determination will include a brief explanation of the 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Office decision, and will specify which appealed addresses were accepted and which were not accepted. Each written final determination shall become part of the administrative record of the 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Process. The decision of the 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Office is final. The Census Bureau will include all addresses accepted as a result of the Appeals Process in the 2020 Census Address List, and will attempt to enumerate them all during the nonresponse follow-up operation. Inclusion in this operation does not guarantee that a successful enumeration will occur, or that the address will be included in the final 2020 Census data summaries. G. Completion of the Appeals Process The 2020 Census LUCA Appeals Process is scheduled to be completed by the end of January 2020. Appeals will be reviewed and completed on a flow basis, with the written final determination issued to the concerned parties as soon as possible. Executive Orders 12866 and 13771 This final procedural notice is not a significant regulatory action under Executive Order 12866. In addition, this final notice is not an E.O. 13771 regulatory action. Paperwork Reduction Act Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person is required to respond PO 00000 Frm 00090 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 34205 to, nor shall a person be subject to a penalty for failure to comply with, a collection of information subject to the requirements of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA), Chapter 35 of Title 44 of the United States Code, unless that collection of information displays a current, valid Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. In accordance with the PRA, the Census Bureau requested, on November 14, 2016, and OMB granted, on December 15, 2016, clearance for the information collection requirements of this operation (OMB Control Number 0607–0994).
