Title: Electric System Emergency Restoration Plan. OMB Control Number: 0572–0140. Type of Request: Extension of a currently approved collection. Abstract: USDA Rural Development administers rural utilities programs through the Rural Utilities Service (Agency). The Agency manages loan programs in accordance with the Rural Electrification Act (RE Act) of 1936, 7 U.S.C. 901 et sec., as amended. One of the Agency’s main objectives is to safeguard loan security. An important part of safeguarding loan security is to make sure Agency financed facilities are utilized responsibly, adequately operated and adequately maintained. Accordingly, RUS borrowers have a duty to RUS to maintain their respective systems. In performing this duty, borrowers further the purposes of the RE Act while also preserving the value of electric systems to serve as collateral for repayment of RUS assistance. A substantial portion of the electric infrastructure of the United States VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:28 Mar 26, 2020 Jkt 250001 resides in rural America and is maintained by rural Americans. RUS is uniquely coupled with the electric infrastructure of rural America and its electric borrowers serving rural America. To ensure that the electric infrastructure in rural America is adequately protected, electric borrowers conduct a Vulnerability and Risk Assessment (VRA) of their respective systems and utilize the results of this assessment to enhance an existing Emergency Restoration Plan (ERP) or to create an ERP. The VRA is utilized to identify specific assets and infrastructure owned or served by the electric utility, to determine the criticality and the risk level associated with the assets and infrastructure including a risk versus cost analysis, to identify threats and vulnerabilities, if present, to review existing mitigation procedures and to assist in the development of new and additional mitigating procedures, if necessary. The ERP provides written procedures detailing response and restoration efforts in the event of a major system outage resulting from a natural or manmade disaster. The annual exercise of the ERP ensures operability and employee competency and serves to identify and correct deficiencies in the existing ERP. The exercise may be implemented individually by a single borrower, or by an individual borrower as a participant in a multi-party (to include utilities, government agencies and other participants or combination thereof) tabletop execution or actual implementation of the ERP. Electric borrowers maintain ERPs as part of prudent utilities practices. These ERPs are essential to continuous operation of the electric systems. Each electric borrower provides RUS with an annual self-certification that an ERP exists for the system and that an initial VRA has been performed. Estimate of Burden: Public reporting burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 0.5 hour per response. Respondents: Not-for-profit institutions. Estimated Number of Respondents: 625. Estimated Number of Responses per Respondent: 1. Estimated Total Annual Burden on Respondents: 313 hours. Copies of this information collection can be obtained from Lauren Cusick, Regulations Management Division, at (202) 720–1414, or email: lauren.cusick@usda.gov. All responses to this notice will be summarized and included in the requests for OMB approval. All PO 00000 Frm 00006 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 17309 comments will also become a matter of public record.
