Abstract Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR 1320, which implement the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104–131), require that interested members of the public and affected parties have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities. This notice identifies an information collection activity that the Office of Acquisition and Property Management has submitted to OMB for renewal. Title 5 of the U.S. Code section 5911 authorizes Federal agencies to provide housing for Government employees under specified circumstances. In compliance with OMB Circular A–45 (Revised), Rental and Construction of Government Quarters, a review of private rental market housing rates is required at least once every 5 years to ensure that the rental, utility charges, and charges for related services to occupants of Government Furnished Housing (GFH) are comparable to corresponding charges in the private sector. To avoid unnecessary duplication and inconsistent rental rates, the Department of the Interior, Office of the Secretary, Interior Business Center (on behalf of the Office of Acquisition and Property Management), conducts housing surveys in support of employee housing management programs for the Departments of the Interior (DOI), Agriculture, Commerce, Homeland Security, Justice, Transportation, Health and Human Services, Veterans Affairs, and other E:\FR\FM\23DEN1.SGM 23DEN1 Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 246 / Monday, December 23, 2019 / Notices agencies. In this survey, two collection forms are used for rental unit data: OS– 2000 covering ‘‘Houses–Apartments– Mobile Homes,’’ and OS–2001 covering ‘‘Trailer Spaces.’’ Respondents are typically property management companies or significant property owners in specific communities, and are contacted by email or telephone. They may provide the rental unit information requested in OS–2000 and OS–2001 verbally, update rental data collected during a previous survey, enhance/complete rental data gathered from published sources, or provide printouts/lists of rental units they manage. This collection of information provides data that is essential for DOI and the other Federal agencies to manage GFH in accordance with the requirements of OMB Circular A–45 (Revised). If this information were not collected from the public, DOI and the other Federal agencies providing GFH would be required to use professional real estate appraisals of private market rental costs, again, in accordance with OMB Circular A–45, but at an increased cost to the taxpayer. lotter on DSKBCFDHB2PROD with NOTICES II.

Estimated annual number of unique respondents: 1,883 Obligation to Respond: Voluntary. Estimated annual average number of responses (rental units): OS–2000: 3,180; OS–2001: 359; Total: 3,539. Frequency of response: Once per respondent every fourth year. Three or four of 16 total survey regions are surveyed every year. Therefore a respondent or business may potentially be surveyed every fourth year, if exact same unit is surveyed again four years later. In addition, if an individual respondent or business is a significant rental property manager or rental property owner in the community, they may provide multiple responses in the same survey. Approximately 63% of respondents furnish more than one rental unit (OS–2000 and OS–2001). About 60% of respondents validate published data (tax records, advertisement, etc.), 30% update their previous survey data, and 10% furnish a new OS–2000 or OS–2001. Participation is optional.

Total annualized reporting: 342 hours. (3) Description of the need and use of the information: This information collection provides the data that enables DOI to determine open market rental costs for GFH. These rates in turn enable DOI to set GFH rental rates for other Federal agencies, as a shared federal service, in accordance with the requirements of OMB Circular A–45 (Revised). The information collection enables government employee rental rates to be established that comply with A–45 for several agencies costeffectively. (4) As required under 5 CFR 1320.8(d), a Federal Register notice soliciting comments on the information collection was published on May 5, 2016 (81 FR 27171). No comments were received.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

I. Abstract

    Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR 1320, 
which implement the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-131), 
require that interested members of the public and affected parties have 
an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping 
activities. This notice identifies an information collection activity 
that the Office of Acquisition and Property Management has submitted to 
OMB for renewal.
    Title 5 of the U.S. Code section 5911 authorizes Federal agencies 
to provide housing for Government employees under specified 
circumstances. In compliance with OMB Circular A-45 (Revised), Rental 
and Construction of Government Quarters, a review of private rental 
market housing rates is required at least once every 5 years to ensure 
that the rental, utility charges, and charges for related services to 
occupants of Government Furnished Housing (GFH) are comparable to 
corresponding charges in the private sector. To avoid unnecessary 
duplication and inconsistent rental rates, the Department of the 
Interior, Office of the Secretary, Interior Business Center (on behalf 
of the Office of Acquisition and Property Management), conducts housing 
surveys in support of employee housing management programs for the 
Departments of the Interior (DOI), Agriculture, Commerce, Homeland

agencies. In this survey, two collection forms are used for rental unit 
data: OS-2000 covering ``Houses-Apartments-Mobile Homes,'' and OS-2001 
covering ``Trailer Spaces.''
    Respondents are typically property management companies or

requested in OS-2000 and OS-2001 verbally, update rental data collected 
during a previous survey, enhance/complete rental data gathered from 
published sources, or provide printouts/lists of rental units they 
manage.
    This collection of information provides data that is essential for 
DOI and the other Federal agencies to manage GFH in accordance with the 
requirements of OMB Circular A-45 (Revised). If this information were 
not collected from the public, DOI and the other Federal agencies 
providing GFH would be required to use professional real estate 
appraisals of private market rental costs, again, in accordance with 
OMB Circular A-45, but at an increased cost to the taxpayer.

expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide
