Please note that comments submitted in response to this Notice are public record. Before including any detailed personal information, you should be aware that your comments as submitted, including your personal information, will be available for public review. khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES Abstract of Proposed Collection The Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) regularly monitors and evaluates its programs through the collection of data about program accomplishments in order to enable program staff to assess the results of its programs, where improvements may be necessary, and to modify/plan future programs. In order to more systematically assess the efficacy and impact of ECA fundedprograms and to address the requirements of the Foreign Aid Transparency and Accountability Act (FATAA) and the Department of State’s updated monitoring and evaluation guidance (18 FAM 300), ECA’s Evaluation Division has created a robust performance monitoring framework that is responsive to these directives, measures programmatic goals and objectives, and provides a comprehensive view of overall Bureau activities. The Monitoring Data for ECA (MODE) Framework (https:// eca.state.gov/impact/eca-evaluationdivision/monitoring-data-eca-modeframework) includes a results framework with indicators designed to track program performance and the direction, pace, and magnitude of change of ECA programs—leading to strengthened feedback mechanisms resulting in more effective programs. Each of these indicators has corresponding data collection questions defined so data will be collected uniformly whether by the program office, the Evaluation Division, or an award recipient. Implementation of the MODE Framework will enable ECA to standardize and utilize its data in the following ways: • Assess data and performance metrics to enhance program performance VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:24 Jun 03, 2020 Jkt 250001 • Inform strategic planning activities at the Bureau, division, and individual exchange program levels • Supplement the information ECA program officers receive from their award recipients and exchange participants to provide a comprehensive view of programmatic activities • Respond quickly and reliably to adhoc requests from Congress, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), and internal Department of State stakeholders In order to collect data for the MODE Framework, the ECA Evaluation Division intends to conduct ongoing surveys of program participants, alumni, and participant host and home communities to monitor program performance, assess impact, and identify issues for further evaluation. Specifically, ECA will coordinate with award recipients to provide standard survey questions for both foreign national and U.S. citizen exchange participants immediately after completing the exchange (‘‘Participant Post-Program Survey’’). ECA’s Evaluation Division also intends to administer standard surveys to foreign national and U.S. citizen exchange alumni roughly one year, three years and five years after completing their exchange experience. Conducting postprogram surveys, particularly after three and five years, will provide information on the impact of ECA programs and insight into the achievements of participants. To examine multiplier effects of ECA exchange programs on foreign and U.S. communities and institutions that sponsor, support, or provide exchange programs support or services, ECA intends to administer standard surveys to foreign and U.S. host community members (individuals or institutions) where feasible. Methodology In previous years, the ECA Evaluation Division surveyed foreign alumni from a sample of 10 ECA programs. The suggested MODE Framework data collections represent an expansion to include American participants and standardization of the data collection tools. Additionally, ECA has not collected these data in a systematic manner from U.S. and foreign host community members in the past. Currently, ECA award recipients administer post-program surveys to their participants as part of their internal program monitoring data collection approach. ECA intends to leverage this ongoing survey process by PO 00000 Frm 00086 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 providing program awardees standard indicators (we estimate anywhere from 10–15 for each award) and corresponding data collection questions, depending on the program orientation. In many instances, these standard indicators and questions will supplant existing awardee defined comparable indicators and questions with ECA defined uniform data requirements. This will ensure the data ECA gathers are valid and reliable across the range of exchange programs.

The collection involves the applicant entering information onto and submitting the FAA Form 8310–3, Application for Repair Station Certificate and/or Rating to the appropriate FAA field office. Persons requesting to obtain an initial Air Agency Certificate to operate as an FAA certificated repair station or request changes to an existing repair station (air agency) certificate do so by submitting the request through the submission of the FAA Form 8310–3. This form is available to the applicant/respondent via www.faa.gov, email, in person, or by mail. The FAA Form 8310–3, Application for Repair Station Certificate and/or Ratings captures information such as, but not limited to; official name of repair station, location where business is conducted, official mailing address, any doing business as name, changes in ratings, or if initial certification, ratings sought, changes in location or housing and facilities, change in name or ownership, or any other purpose for which the applicant requests, including a request for approval to contract maintenance functions to outside entities.

The FAA has identified that the information collected through the FAA Form 8310–3 does not capture the entire repair station certification activities or changes to an existing certificate. OMB Control Number 2120–0682 is not only authorizing the Agency to receive information collected on the FAA Form 8310–3, but should also encapsulate the entire calculation burden associated with repair station certification and subsequent changes to an existing certificate. Once burden calculations associated with repair station certification activities are properly assessed, the FAA will publish a new notice to the Federal Register capturing the entire burden calculation for repair station certification and subsequent changes to an existing certificate.
