SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), the FTC has submitted to the Office of Management and Budget (‘‘OMB’’) this request for extension of the previously approved collection of information discussed below. Title: Affiliate Marketing Rule (16 CFR 680). OMB Control Number: 3084–0131. Type of Review: Extension of currently approved collection. Estimated Annual Burden: The total estimated burden is 9,170 hours and $367,588 in associated labor costs. Commission staff estimates that the capital and non-labor costs associated with the Affiliate Marketing Rule’s disclosure requirements are de minimis, because covered entities can consolidate affiliate marketing notices with other notices they already provide to their customers such as notices issued pursuant to the Commission’s Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act Financial Privacy Rule (16 CFR 313).1 For more details about the Rule requirements, the background behind these information collection provisions, and the basis for these calculations, see 84 FR 51163 (Sept. 27, 2019). Request for Comment: On September 27, 2019, the Commission sought comment on the information collection requirements associated with the Affiliate Marketing Rule and the Commission’s shared enforcement with the CFPB of the affiliate marketing provisions of Regulation V subpart C (12 CFR 1022.21). 84 FR 51163 (Sept. 27, 2019). No relevant comments were received. Pursuant to the OMB regulations, 5 CFR part 1320, that implement the PRA, 44 1 We note, however, that some financial institutions may qualify for an exception and would not be required to send annual Gramm-Leach-Bliley privacy notices. See Fixing America’s Surface Transportation Act (‘‘FAST Act’’), Public Law 114– 94, 129 Stat. 1312, Section 75001 (Dec. 4, 2015). VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:15 Jan 06, 2020 Jkt 250001 U.S.C. 3501 et seq., the FTC is providing this second opportunity for public comment while seeking OMB approval to renew the pre-existing clearance for those information collection requirements.

AHRQ does not reply to individual nominations, but considers all nominations in selecting members. Information regarded as private and personal, such as a nominee’s social security number, home and email addresses, home telephone and fax numbers, or names of family members will not be disclosed to the public in accord with the Freedom of Information Act. 5 U.S.C. 552(b)(6); 45 CFR 5.31(f). Nomination Submissions Nominations must be submitted electronically or in writing, and should include: 1. The applicant’s current curriculum vitae and contact information, including mailing address, and email address; and 2. A letter explaining how this individual meets the qualification requirements and how he or she would contribute to the USPSTF. The letter should also attest to the nominee’s willingness to serve as a member of the USPSTF. AHRQ will later ask people under serious consideration for USPSTF membership to provide detailed information that will permit evaluation of possible significant conflicts of interest. Such information will concern matters such as financial holdings, consultancies, non-financial scientific interests, and research grants or contracts. To obtain a diversity of perspectives, AHRQ particularly encourages nominations of women, members of minority populations, and persons with disabilities. Interested individuals can nominate themselves. Organizations and individuals may nominate one or more people qualified for membership on the USPSTF at any time. Individuals nominated prior to May 15, 2019, who continue to have interest in serving on the USPSTF should be re-nominated. Qualification Requirements To qualify for the USPSTF and support its mission, an applicant or nominee should, at a minimum, demonstrate knowledge, expertise and national leadership in the following areas: 1. The critical evaluation of research published in peer-reviewed literature and in the methods of evidence review; 2. Clinical prevention, health promotion and primary health care; and 3. Implementation of evidence-based recommendations in clinical practice PO 00000 Frm 00043 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 711 including at the clinician-patient level, practice level, and health-system level. Additionally, the Task Force benefits from members with expertise in the following areas: D Public Health D Health Equity and The Reduction Of Health Disparities D Application of Science to Health Policy D Dissemination and Implementation D Behavioral Medicine/Clinical Health Psychology D Communication of Scientific Findings to Multiple Audiences Including Health Care Professionals, Policy Makers and the General Public Candidates with experience and skills in any of these areas should highlight them in their nomination materials. Applicants must have no substantial conflicts of interest, whether financial, professional, or intellectual, that would impair the scientific integrity of the work of the USPSTF and must be willing to complete regular conflict of interest disclosures. Applicants must have the ability to work collaboratively with a team of diverse professionals who support the mission of the USPSTF. Applicants must have adequate time to contribute substantively to the work products of the USPSTF. Nominee Selection Nominated individuals will be selected for the USPSTF on the basis of how well they meet the required qualifications and the current expertise needs of the USPSTF. It is anticipated that new members will be invited to serve on the USPSTF beginning in January, 2021. All nominated individuals will be considered; however, strongest consideration will be given to individuals with demonstrated training and expertise in the areas of Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Pediatrics, and Obstetrics and Gynecology. AHRQ will retain and may consider for future vacancies nominations received this year and not selected during this cycle. Some USPSTF members without primary health care clinical experience may be selected based on their expertise in methodological issues such as metaanalysis, analytic modeling or clinical epidemiology. For individuals with clinical expertise in primary health care, additional qualifications in methodology would enhance their candidacy.
