FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Doug DeLancey, 703–235–8207, dhsobptaskings@HQ.DHS.GOV. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the Homeland Security Presidential Directive-19, DHS was mandated to develop strategies and recommendations on how to deter, prevent, detect, protect against, and respond to IED explosive attacks. DHS thus educates private sector security providers about IED threats, including tactics, techniques, and procedures relevant to their usage, so private sector security providers are knowledgeable about terrorist use of explosives and contribute to a layered security approach. The Presidential Policy Directive-17 provides guidance to update and gives momentum to our ability to counter threats involving improvised explosive devices. DHS was mandated to deliver standardized IED awareness and familiarization training for federal, state and local responders and public safety personnel. The DHS CISA ISD Office for Bombing Prevention (OBP) must collect various information to effectively deliver this training. Additionally, OBP collects data to provide updated and awareness product information following conferences and other outreach events. OBP describes these collections below. The purpose of the Volunteer Participant Release of Liability Agreement is to collect necessary information in case an individual who acts as a volunteer role player in support of official OBP training sustains an injury or death during the performance of their supporting role. If legal action is taken, this information can serve as a hold harmless statement/ agreement by the Government. In the unlikely event that an injury or death is sustained in the performance of support for training, this information will be used by OBP to protect against legal action by the volunteer or their family. If legal action is taken, this information can serve as a ‘‘hold harmless’’ statement/agreement by the Government. VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:48 Nov 01, 2019 Jkt 250001 The purpose of the Gratuitous Services Agreement is to establish that no monies, favors or other compensation will be given or received by either party involved in volunteer training. The information from the Gratuitous Services Agreement will be used by OBP in the event that questions arise regarding remuneration or payment for volunteer participation in training events. The purpose of the OBP Interest Signup sheet is to collect an individual’s contact information at the training events and conferences. This information is used by OBP in order to follow-up with an individual’s questions and to provide the individual with updated or new awareness product information at the conclusion of conference season as well as establish an OBP point of contact for them. The changes to the collection since the previous OMB approval include: Updating the collection name to better reflect instruments in the collection, adding the collecting of contact information, an increase in burden estimates and costs. The addition of the Interest Sign-up Sheet has increased the annual burden estimate by 8 hours, which corresponds to an annual cost of $319. It has also increased the annual government burden estimate by 2 hours at an annual cost of $247. The annual burden cost for the existing collections (i.e., the Volunteer Participant Release of Liability Agreement and the Gratuitous Services Agreement) has increased by $2,204, from $3,894 to $6,098, due to updated hourly compensation rates. The annual government cost for the existing collections (i.e., the Volunteer Participant Release of Liability Agreement and the Gratuitous Services Agreement) has increased by $11,695, from $6,831 to $18,526, due to updated hourly compensation rates. This is a revision and renewal of an information collection. OMB is particularly interested in comments that: 1. 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; 2. 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; 3. Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 59399 4. 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 submissions of responses.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Critical Infrastructure Protection Act of 2001, 42 U.S.C. 5195c, states that any physical or virtual disruption of the operation of the critical infrastructures of the United States be rare, brief, geographically limited in effect, manageable, and minimally detrimental to the economy, human and government services, and national security of the United States; and that actions necessary to achieve the policy stated be carried out in a public-private partnership involving corporate and non-governmental organizations. On behalf of the DHS, CISA ISD manages the Department’s program to protect the Nation’s 16 critical infrastructure sectors by implementing the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP) 2013, Partnering for Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience. Pursuant to Presidential Policy Directive 21 on Critical Infrastructure Security and Resilience (February 2013), each sector is assigned a Sector-Specific Agency (SSA) to oversee Federal interaction with the array of sector security partners, both public and private. An SSA is responsible for leading a unified public-private sector effort to develop, coordinate, and implement a comprehensive physical, human, and cyber security strategy for its assigned sector. CISA ISD Sector Outreach and Programs (SOP) executes the SSA responsibilities for the six critical infrastructure sectors assigned to VerDate Sep<11>2014 20:48 Nov 01, 2019 Jkt 250001 ISD: Chemical, Commercial Facilities, Critical Manufacturing, Dams, Emergency Services, and Nuclear Reactors, Materials and Waste (Nuclear). The mission of SOP is to enhance the resiliency of the Nation by leading the unified public-private sector effort to ensure its assigned critical infrastructure are prepared, more secure, and safer from terrorist attacks, natural disasters, and other incidents. To achieve this mission, SOP leverages the resources and knowledge of its critical infrastructure sectors to develop and apply security initiatives that result in significant, measurable benefits to the Nation. Each SOP branch builds sustainable partnerships with its public and private sector stakeholders to enable more effective sector coordination, information sharing, and program development and implementation. These partnerships are sustained through the Sector Partnership Model, described in the 2013 NIPP pages 10–12. Information sharing is a key component of the NIPP Partnership Model, and DHS sponsored conferences are one mechanism for information sharing. To facilitate conference planning and organization, SOP has established an online event registration tool for use by all of its branches. The information collection is voluntary and is used by the SSAs within SOP. The six SSAs within SOP uses this information to register public and private sector stakeholders for meetings hosted by the SSA. The SOP uses the information collected to reserve space at a meeting for the registrant; contact the registrant with a reminder about the event; develop meeting materials for attendees; determine topics of most interest; and efficiently generate attendee and speaker nametags. Additionally, it allows SOP to have a better understanding of the organizations participating in the critical infrastructure protection partnership events. By understanding who is participating, the SSA can identify portions of a sector that are underrepresented, and the SSA could then target that underrepresented sector elements through outreach and awareness initiatives. The changes to the collection include: Changes to the burden costs, annual government costs, and adding data fields. The registration has been updated to add the following data fields: Attendee ADA Specific Aids or Services Requested (Yes/No), Attendee Organization Company Size, Attendee First Time Attending, Organization Category, Attendee Organization Private Sector Category, Public Sector Category. PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 9990 The annual burden cost for the collection has increased by $175, from $1,627 to $1,802, due to updated compensation rates. The annual government cost for the collection has decreased by $3,269, from $11,615 to $8,347, due to reduced online registration tool annual use fee and a decrease in the cost per registrant from $9.73 to $7.19 per registrant.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Critical Infrastructure Protection Act 
of 2001, 42 U.S.C. 5195c, states that any physical or virtual 
disruption of the operation of the critical infrastructures of the 
United States be rare, brief, geographically limited in effect,
