Download as PDF 27745 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 91 / Monday, May 11, 2020 / Notices consumers in financial transactions, to the extent that the branch, agency, or commercial lending company engages in activities that are subject to such laws.’’ 4 The Board has authority to examine branches and agencies of foreign banks and commercial lending companies owned or controlled by foreign banks and to enforce the provisions of the IBA pursuant to sections 7 and 13 of the IBA.5 The CFPB G is mandatory. The unique identifier of MLOs must be made public and is not considered confidential. In addition, most of the information that MLOs submit in order to register with the NMLS will be publicly available. However, certain identifying data about individuals who act as MLOs may be treated as confidential pursuant to exemption 6 of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), which protects from disclosure information that ‘‘would constitute a clearly unwarranted invasion of personal privacy.’’ 6 With respect to the information collection requirements imposed on banking organizations, because banking organizations are required to retain their own records and make certain disclosures to customers, the FOIA would only be implicated if the Board’s examiners obtained a copy of these records as part of the examination or supervision of a financial institution. Records obtained in this manner may be exempt from disclosure under FOIA exemption 8, regarding examinationrelated materials.7 Current actions: On January 16, 2020, the Board published an initial notice in the Federal Register (85 FR 2742) requesting public comment for 60 days on the extension, without revision, of the CFPB G. The comment period for this notice expired on March 16, 2020. The Board did not receive any comments. Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System, May 5, 2020.

(2) OCSE will send a file containing information about parents who owe past-due support to the insurer, or their agent, to compare with their claims, settlements, awards, and payments. The insurer or their agent sends any resulting insurance data matches to OCSE. On a daily basis, OCSE sends the results of the insurance data match in an ‘‘Insurance Match Response Record’’ to child support agencies responsible for collecting pastdue support. The child support agencies use the insurance data matches to collect past-due support from the insurance proceeds.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: When submitting comments or requesting information, please include the information request collection title for reference. Information Collection Request Title: Shortage Designation Management System OMB No. 0906-0029—Revision. Abstract: HRSA’s Bureau of Health Workforce is committed to improving the health of the Nation’s underserved communities and vulnerable populations by developing, implementing, evaluating, and refining programs that strengthen the nation’s health workforce. The Department of Health and Human Services relies on two federal shortage designations to identify and dedicate resources to areas and populations in greatest need of providers: Health Professional Shortage Area (HPSA) designations and Medically Underserved Area/Medically Underserved Population (MUA/P) designations. HPSA designations are geographic areas, population groups, and facilities that are experiencing a shortage of health professionals. The authorizing statute for the National Health Service Corps (NHSC) created HPSAs to fulfill the statutory requirement that NHSC personnel be directed to areas of greatest need. To further differentiate areas of greatest need, HRSA calculates a score for each HPSA. There are three categories of HPSAs based on health discipline: Primary care, dental health, and mental health. Scores range from 1 to 25 for primary care and mental health and from 1 to 26 for dental, with higher scores indicating greater need. They are used to prioritize applications for NHSC Loan Repayment Program award funding, and determine service sites eligible to receive NHSC Scholarship and Students-to-Service participants. MUA/P designations are geographic areas, or population groups within geographic areas, that are experiencing a shortage of primary care health care services based on the Index of Medical Underservice (IMU). MUAs are designated for the entire population of a particular geographic area. MUA/P designations are limited to particular subset of the population within a geographic area. Both designations were created to aid the federal government in identifying areas with healthcare workforce shortages. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: PO 00000 Frm 00039 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 As part of HRSA’s cooperative agreement with the State Primary Care Offices (PCOs), the State PCOs conduct needs assessment in their states, determine what areas are eligible for designations, and submit designation applications for HRSA review via the Shortage Designation Management System (SDMS). Requests that come from other sources are referred to the PCOs for their review, concurrence, and submission via SDMS. In order to obtain a federal shortage designation for an area, population, or facility, PCOs must submit a shortage designation application through SDMS for review and approval by HRSA. Both the HPSA and MUA/P application request local, state, and national data on the population that is experiencing a shortage of health professionals and the number of health professionals relative to the population covered by the proposed designation. The information collected on the applications is used to determine which areas, populations, and facilities have qualifying shortages. In addition, interested parties, including the Governor, the State Primary Care Association, state professional associations, etc. are notified of each designation request submitted via SDMS for their comments and recommendations. HRSA reviews the HPSA applications submitted by the State PCOs, and—if they meet the designation eligibility criteria for the type of HPSA or MUA/ P the application is for—designates the HPSA or MUA/P on behalf of the Secretary. HPSAs are statutorily required to be annually reviewed and revised as necessary after initial designation to reflect current data. HPSAs scores, therefore may and do change from time to time. Currently, MUA/Ps do not gave a statutorily mandated review period. The lists of designated HPSAs are published annually in the Federal Register. In addition, lists of HPSAs are updated on the HRSA website, https:// data.hrsa.gov/tools/shortage-area, so that interested parties can access the information. A 60-day notice published in the Federal Register on February 26, 2020, vol. 85, No. 38; pp. 11094–95. There was one public comment. Need and Proposed Use of the Information: In 2014, SDMS was launched to facilitate the collection of information needed to designate HPSAs and MUA/Ps. The information obtained from the SDMS Application is used to determine which areas, populations, and facilities have critical shortages of health professionals per PCO application submission.
