DATES: Comments are encouraged and will be accepted until September 5, 2019. This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 1320.10. ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget by the following method: http:// www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for submitting comments. All submissions received must include the agency name and docket number for this document. The general policy for comments and other submissions from members of the public is to make these submissions available for public viewing at http://www.regulations.gov as they are received without change, including any personal identifiers or contact information. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: A copy of this information collection, with applicable supporting documentation, may be obtained by contacting Office of Personnel Management, Suitability Executive Agent Programs, 1900 E Street NW, Suite 1435, Washington, DC 20415 or by electronic mail at SuitEA@ opm.gov. Please contact Colleen Crowley at 202–606–2245 if you have questions. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1), OPM is providing an additional 30 days for public comments. OPM previously solicited comments for this collection, with a 60-day public comment period, at 84 FR 5733 (February 22, 2019). 2,748 comments were received. This notice announces that OPM has submitted to OMB a request to renew with no changes a previously approved information collection, OMB number 3206–0182, Declaration for Federal Employment (OF 306). The public has an additional 30-day opportunity to comment. The Declaration for Federal Employment Optional Form (OF) 306 is completed by applicants who are under consideration for Federal or Federal contract employment. It collects information about an applicant’s selective service registration, military service, and general background. The information collected on this form is mainly used to determine a person’s acceptability for Federal and Federal contract employment, and his or her retirement status and life insurance enrollment. However, if necessary, and usually in conjunction with another PO 00000 Frm 00104 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 38305 form or forms, the information on this form may be used in conducting an investigation to determine a person’s suitability or ability to hold a security clearance, and it may be disclosed to authorized officials making similar, subsequent determinations. The OF 306 permits applicants to disclose and explain their personal history in advance of the background investigation, consistent with a Privacy Act requirement to ‘‘collect information to the greatest extent practicable directly from the subject individual when the information may result in adverse determinations about an individual’s rights, benefits, and privileges under Federal programs.’’ See 5 U.S.C. 552a(3)(2). The OF 306 requests that the applicant provide personal identifying data, including past convictions, imprisonments, probations, paroles or military court martial, delinquency on a Federal debt, Selective Service Registration, United States military service, Federal civilian or military retirement benefits received or applied for, and life insurance enrollment. To be clear, providing information regarding past criminal conduct does not in itself impact an individual’s eligibility for most positions in the federal government. Renewal of the form is not changing any current policies. In the February 22, 2019 Federal Register Notice, OPM proposed to change the form to provide clarification for respondents who may have completed pretrial diversionary programs. OPM has decided to renew the form in its current state, without the modifications proposed in the February 22, 2019 Federal Register Notice. This will permit OPM time to carefully evaluate and consider the 2,748 comments submitted during the comment period by members of the public and other stakeholders. We will take these comments into consideration to evaluate the best way forward to allow for both continuing to support second chance hiring initiatives and providing federal agencies with the ability to make informed hiring and vetting decisions. OPM supports efforts by the Administration and Congress to take steps to reform the criminal justice system and improve second chance hiring employment opportunities. For most federal jobs, questions regarding criminal history do not appear on initial job applications, and agencies do consider people with criminal records when filling most government positions if they are the best candidates and can comply with existing requirements.

The Commission is publishing this notice to solicit comments on the proposed rule change from interested persons. I. Self-Regulatory Organization’s Statement of the Terms of Substance of the Proposed Rule Change The Exchange is filing a proposal to amend Exchange Rule 518, Complex 1 15 2 17 U.S.C. 78s(b)(1). CFR 240.19b–4. VerDate Sep<11>2014 19:21 Aug 05, 2019 The Exchange proposes to amend Exchange Rule 518, Complex Orders, to amend subsection (d)(7), Allocation at the Conclusion of a Complex Auction, to adopt a new parenthetical to existing rule text to state that orders and quotes executed in a Complex Auction 3 will be allocated first in price priority based on their original limit price (or protected price, as described in Interpretation and Policy .05., if price protection is engaged). Currently, subsection (d)(7) of the Rule provides that orders and quotes executed in a Complex Auction will be allocated first in price priority based on their original limit price, and thereafter as follows, and the Rule lists six different scenarios which influence allocation. The Exchange is proposing to adopt the parenthetical, ‘‘or protected price if price protection, as described in Interpretation and Policy .05., is engaged’’ after the term ‘‘original limit price’’ to improve the fairness and consistency of allocations among participants at the end of a Complex Auction. Under the proposal, allocations will continue to be calculated based on original limit price, with the exception that if price protection is engaged, 3 See Jkt 247001 PO 00000 Exchange Rule 518(d). Frm 00105 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 allocation will then be based on the order’s protected price as opposed to the order’s original limit price. The following examples using the MPC Protection better illustrate this scenario.4 Example #1A End of Complex Auction Allocation Using Current Allocation Methodology icEBBO 5/dcEBBO 6 1.75 × 2.00 cNBBO 7 1.85 × 1.95 MPC 0.05 MPC Protection: cNBB 8¥MPC (1.85¥0.05 = 1.80) cNBO 9 + MPC (1.95 + 0.05 = 2.00) Complex Order 1 (CO1) Buy 10 @2.00 (Auction on Arrival) 10 CO1 marked AOA initiates an auction upon receipt. 4 The Exchange notes that the System provides a number of price protections as described in Policy .05. of Interpretations and Policies to this Rule. Price protections include a Vertical Spread Variance price protection (.05.(a)); a Calendar Spread Variance price protection (.05.(b)); an Implied Away Best Bid or Offer (‘‘ixABBO’’) price protection. The ixABBO price protection feature is a price protection mechanism under which, when in operation as requested by the submitting Member, a buy order will not be executed at a price that is higher than each other single exchange’s best displayed offer for the complex strategy, and under which a sell order will not be executed at a price that is lower than each other single exchange’s best displayed bid for the complex strategy (.05.(d)); and a Complex MIAX Emerald Price Collar (‘‘MPC’’) price protection (.05.(f)). 5 Implied Complex MIAX Emerald Best Bid or offer (‘‘icEBBO’’). The icEBBO is a calculation that uses the best price from the Simple Order Book for each component of a complex strategy including displayed and non-displayed trading interest. For stock-option orders, the icEBBO for a complex strategy will be calculated using the best price (whether displayed or non-displayed) on the Simple Order Book in the individual option component(s), and the NBBO in the stock component. See Exchange Rule 518(a)(12). 6 Displayed Complex MIAX Emerald Best Bid or Offer (‘‘dcEBBO’’). The dcEBBO is calculated using the best displayed price for each component of a complex strategy from the Simple Order Book. For stock-option orders, the dcEBBO for a complex strategy will be calculated using the Exchange’s best displayed bid or offer in the individual option component(s) and the NBBO in the stock component. See Exchange Rule 518(a)(8). 7 The Complex National Best Bid or Offer (‘‘cNBBO’’) is calculated using the NBBO for each component of a complex strategy to establish the best net bid and offer for a complex strategy. See Exchange Rule 100. 8 NBB means the National Best Bid. 9 NBO means the National Best Offer. 10 A ‘‘Complex Auction-on-Arrival’’ or ‘‘cAOA’’ order is a complex order designated to be placed into a Complex Auction upon receipt or upon evaluation. Complex orders that are not designated as cAOA will, by default, not initiate a Complex Auction upon arrival, but except as described herein will be eligible to participate in a Complex Auction that is in progress when such complex order arrives or if placed on the Strategy Book may participate in or may initiate a Complex Auction, following evaluation conducted by the System (as described in subparagraph (d) below).[sic] See Exchange Rule 518(b)(2)(i).

Notice of Submission for Approval: Declaration for Federal 
Employment (OF 306)

AGENCY: Office of Personnel Management.

ACTION: 30-day notice and request for comments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The Office of Personnel Management (OPM), Suitability 
Executive Agent Programs, is notifying the general public and other 
Federal agencies that OPM is seeking Office of Management and Budget 
(OMB) renewal of a previously approved information collection, 
Declaration for Federal Employment (OF 306).

DATES: Comments are encouraged and will be accepted until September 5, 
2019. This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 1320.10.

ADDRESSES: Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on 
the proposed information collection to the Office of Information and 
Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget by the following 
method: http://www.regulations.gov. Follow the instructions for 
submitting comments. All submissions received must include the agency 
name and docket number for this document. The general policy for 
comments and other submissions from members of the public is to make 
these submissions available for public viewing at http://www.regulations.gov as they are received without change, including any 
personal identifiers or contact information.

FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: A copy of this information collection, 
with applicable supporting documentation, may be obtained by contacting 
Office of Personnel Management, Suitability Executive Agent Programs, 
1900 E Street NW, Suite 1435, Washington, DC 20415 or by electronic 
mail at [email protected]. Please contact Colleen Crowley at 202-606-2245 
if you have questions.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: As required by the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995, 44 U.S.C. 3507(a)(1), OPM is providing an additional 30 days 
for public comments. OPM previously solicited comments for this 
collection, with a 60-day public comment period, at 84 FR 5733 
(February 22, 2019). 2,748 comments were received. This notice 
announces that OPM has submitted to OMB a request to renew with no 
changes a previously approved information collection, OMB number 3206-
0182, Declaration for Federal Employment (OF 306). The public has an 
additional 30-day opportunity to comment.
    The Declaration for Federal Employment Optional Form (OF) 306 is 
completed by applicants who are under consideration for Federal or 
Federal contract employment. It collects information about an 
applicant's selective service registration, military service, and 
general background. The information collected on this form is mainly 
used to determine a person's acceptability for Federal and Federal 
contract employment, and his or her retirement status and life 
insurance enrollment. However, if necessary, and usually in conjunction 
with another form or forms, the information on this form may be used in 
conducting an investigation to determine a person's suitability or 
ability to hold a security clearance, and it may be disclosed to 
authorized officials making similar, subsequent determinations. The OF 
306 permits applicants to disclose and explain their personal history 
in advance of the background investigation, consistent with a Privacy 
Act requirement to ``collect information to the greatest extent 
practicable directly from the subject individual when the information 
may result in adverse determinations about an individual's rights, 
benefits, and privileges under Federal programs.'' See 5 U.S.C. 
552a(3)(2).
    The OF 306 requests that the applicant provide personal identifying 
data, including past convictions, imprisonments, probations, paroles or 
military court martial, delinquency on a Federal debt, Selective 
Service Registration, United States military service, Federal civilian 
or military retirement benefits received or applied for, and life 
insurance enrollment. To be clear, providing information regarding past 
criminal conduct does not in itself impact an individual's eligibility 
for most positions in the federal government. Renewal of the form is 
not changing any current policies.
    In the February 22, 2019 Federal Register Notice, OPM proposed to 
change the form to provide clarification for respondents who may have 
completed pretrial diversionary programs.
    OPM has decided to renew the form in its current state, without the 
modifications proposed in the February 22, 2019 Federal Register 
Notice. This will permit OPM time to carefully evaluate and consider 
the 2,748 comments submitted during the comment period by members of 
the public and other stakeholders. We will take these comments into 
consideration to evaluate the best way forward to allow for both 
continuing to support second chance hiring initiatives and providing 
federal agencies with the ability to make informed hiring and vetting 
decisions.
    OPM supports efforts by the Administration and Congress to take 
steps to reform the criminal justice system and improve second chance 
hiring employment opportunities. For most federal jobs, questions 
regarding criminal history do not appear on initial job applications, 
and agencies do consider people with criminal records when filling most 
government positions if they are the best candidates and can comply 
with existing requirements.

[[Page 38306]]

Later in the process, generally after there has been a conditional 
offer of employment, individuals seeking admission to the civil service 
are asked to complete a Declaration for Federal Employment (OF 306) and 
undergo an investigation to establish ``suitability'' or fitness for 
employment. See 5 CFR 330.1300.
    Past criminal conduct does not prohibit a person from being hired 
into the vast majority of federal jobs, and each decision is determined 
on a case by case basis.
