This form is used by the EEOC and other agencies to gauge progress and trends over time with respect to equal employment opportunity goals. Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C.

Rather, the information is used in summary form to determine trends over many selections within a given occupational or organization area.

Burden Statement: Because of the predominant use of online application PO 00000 Frm 00035 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 systems, which require only pointing and clicking on the selected responses, and because the form requests only eight questions regarding basic information, the EEOC estimates that an applicant can complete the form in approximately 3 minutes or less. Based on past experience, we expect that 5,042 applicants will choose to complete the form. Upon approval of this common form by OMB, federal agencies may request OMB approval to use this common form without having to publish notices and request public comments for 60 and 30 days. Each agency must account for the burden associated with their use of the common form. Dated: February 18, 2020. For the Commission. Janet L. Dhillon, Chair.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background On February 12, 2020 HHS/CDC published an Interim Final Rule (IFR) in the Federal Register amending its Foreign Quarantine regulations at 42 CFR part 71 (85 FR 7874) to enable CDC to require airlines to collect, and, upon order of the Director of CDC, provide to CDC in a timelier manner, certain data regarding passengers and crew arriving from foreign countries for the purposes of health education, treatment, prophylaxis, or other appropriate public health interventions, including travel restrictions. This Interim Final Rule became effective on February 7, 2020, the day on which it went on display at the Office of the Federal Register. HHS/ CDC undertook this rulemaking because a fundamental component of the public health response to the report of a person with a communicable disease is the identification and evaluation of those who may have been exposed. Thus, in order to control the introduction, transmission, and spread of communicable diseases into the United States, such as COVID–19, CDC must be able to identify and locate persons arriving in the United States from a foreign country who may have been exposed to a communicable disease abroad. Another fundamental component of a public health response is identifying and contacting those individuals who may have come in contact with a person with a communicable disease and who may be at risk of contracting the disease as a result of their interactions with such E:\FR\FM\24FEN1.SGM 24FEN1 EN24FE20.021</GPH> Prevention and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The EEOC's Demographic Information on 
Federal Job Applicants form (OMB No. 3046-0046) is intended for use by 
federal agencies in gathering data on the race, ethnicity, sex, and 
disability status of job applicants. This form is used by the EEOC and 
other agencies to gauge progress and trends over time with respect to 
equal employment opportunity goals.
    Pursuant to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 
35, and OMB regulation 5 CFR 1320.8(d)(1), the Commission solicits 
public comment to enable it to:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed data collection tool will have 
practical utility by enabling a federal agency to determine whether 
recruitment activities are effectively reaching all segments of the 
relevant labor pool in compliance with the laws enforced by the 
Commission and whether the agency's selection procedures allow all 
applicants to compete on a level playing field regardless of race, 
national origin, sex or disability status;
    (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
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
applicants for federal employees who choose 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 submission of responses.

selection process. The information is not provided to any panel rating 
the applications, to selecting officials, to anyone who can affect the 
application, or to the public. Rather, the information is used in 
summary form to determine trends over many selections within a given 
occupational or organization area. No information from the form is 
entered into an official personnel file.
    Burden Statement: Because of the predominant use of online 
application systems, which require only pointing and clicking on the 
selected responses, and because the form requests only eight questions 
regarding basic information, the EEOC estimates that an applicant can 
complete the form in approximately 3 minutes or less. Based on past 
experience, we expect that 5,042 applicants will choose to complete the 
form.
    Upon approval of this common form by OMB, federal agencies may 
request OMB approval to use this common form without having to publish 
notices and request public comments for 60 and 30 days. Each agency 
must account for the burden associated with their use of the common 
form.

    Dated: February 18, 2020.

    For the Commission.
Janet L. Dhillon,
Chair.
