The ICR documentation will be available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Consistent with the requirements of Executive Order (E.O.) 13771, Reducing Regulation and Controlling Regulatory Costs, and E.O. 13777, Enforcing the Regulatory Reform Agenda, TSA is also requesting comments on the extent to which this request for information could be modified to reduce the burden on respondents. Information Collection Requirement OMB Control Number 1652–0047; Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC®) Program. The Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC®) program is a DHS program administered jointly by TSA and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) to mitigate threats and vulnerabilities in the national maritime transportation system. The program implements authorities set forth in the Aviation and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) (Pub. L. 107–71; Nov. 19, 2002; sec. 106), the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA) (Pub. L. 107–295; Nov. 25, 2002; sec. 102), and the Safe, Accountable, Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act—A Legacy for Users (SAFETEA–LU) (Pub. L. 109–59; Aug. 10, 2005; sec. 7105), codified at 49 U.S.C. 5103a(g). TSA and the USCG implemented these requirements through a rulemaking codified at 33 CFR parts 105 and 106, and 49 CFR part 1572. TWIC® is a common credential for all personnel requiring unescorted access to secure areas of facilities and vessels regulated pursuant to requirements in the Maritime Transportation Security PO 00000 Frm 00059 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 39927 Act (MTSA) and certain mariners holding USCG credentials. Individuals in the field of transportation who are required to undergo an STA in certain other programs, such as the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism (CFATS) program, may also apply for a TWIC® and the associated security threat assessment to satisfy CFATS requirements. Before issuing an individual a TWIC®, TSA performs an STA that includes checks of criminal history, immigration, and terrorism records. To conduct the STA, TSA must collect the following: • Certain biographic information, including name, address, date of birth and other information; • Fingerprints and photographs of applicants; and • A $125.25 fee from applicants to cover the cost of the STA, as required by law (see 6 U.S.C. 469). TSA collects this information from applicants during an optional preenrollment step or during the enrollment session at an enrollment center. If TSA determines that the applicant is eligible to receive a TWIC® as a result of the STA, TSA issues and sends an activated TWIC® card to the address provided by the applicant or notifies the applicant that their TWIC® is ready for pick up and activation at an enrollment center. Once activated, this credential can be used for facility and vessel access control requirements to include card authentication, card validation, and identity verification. In the event of a lost, damaged or stolen credential, the cardholder must notify TSA immediately and may request a replacement card online, via telephone or, from an enrollment center for a $60.00 fee. TSA may also use the information to determine a TWIC® holder’s eligibility to participate in TSA’s expedited screening program for air travel, TSA PreCheckTM Application Program. Beginning April 2020, active (unexpired) TWIC® holders who meet the eligibility requirements for TSA PreCheck may use their TWIC® card’s Credential Identification Number in the appropriate known traveler number field of an airline reservation to obtain expedited screening eligibility. TSA invites all TWIC® applicants to complete an optional survey to gather information on the applicants’ overall customer satisfaction with the enrollment process. This optional survey is administered by a Trusted Agent (a representative of the TWIC® enrollment service provider, who performs enrollment functions) during the process to activate the TWIC®. E:\FR\FM\02JYN1.SGM 02JYN1 39928 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 128 / Thursday, July 2, 2020 / Notices These surveys are collected at each enrollment center and compiled to produce reports that are reviewed by the contractor and TSA. TSA estimates that there will be approximately 541,514 respondents to this TWIC® information collection. The current estimated annualized hour burden is 681,785 hours. Dated: June 25, 2020.

Type of Request: Revision. Form Number: Guidebook 4430.G. Description of the need for the information and proposed use: Multifamily Accelerated Processing (MAP) is designed to establish uniform national standards for Federal Housing Administration (FHA) approved lenders to prepare, process and submit loan applications for FHA multifamily mortgage insurance. The MAP Guide provides—in one volume with appendices—guidance for HUD staff, lenders, third party consultants, borrowers, and other industry participants. Topics include mortgage insurance program descriptions, borrower and lender eligibility requirements, application requirements, underwriting standards for all technical disciplines and construction loan administration requirements. The MAP Guide applies only to FHA multifamily mortgage insurance programs. Except to the extent lender monitoring or enforcement activities overlap, Section 232 and other programs administered by the Office of Healthcare Programs are not addressed by the MAP Guide. The Guide has been updated to reflect various organizational, policy and processing changes implemented since the last edition was published in 2016. Examples include electronic submission of data in a standardized format, the consolidation of HUD Field Offices to Regional Centers and Satellite Offices, workload sharing, and a ‘‘risk-based’’ underwriting approach. The goal of MAP is to provide a consistent, expedited mortgage insurance application process at each HUD Multifamily Regional Center or Satellite Office. All MAP eligible projects must be submitted using MAP processing PO 00000 Frm 00060 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 unless a waiver is granted to process under Traditional Application Processing (TAP). Such waiver approval authority is retained by HUD Headquarters’ Director of Multifamily Production. Additionally, two new chapters were added to this edition of the Guide: The ‘‘Water and Energy Conservation’’ chapter and the ‘‘Closing Guide’’. Respondents (i.e., affected public): FHA Approved MAP Lenders. Estimated Number of Respondents: 86. Estimated Number of Responses: 344. Frequency of Response: 1. Average Hours per Response: 30 hours [121 hrs/4 = 30.25 hrs]. Total Estimated Burden: 10,406. B. Solicitation of Public Comment This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected parties concerning the collection of information described in Section A on the following: (1) Whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) The accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (3) Ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond; including through the use of appropriate automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submission of responses.

Information Collection Requirement

    OMB Control Number 1652-0047; Transportation Worker Identification 
Credential (TWIC[supreg]) Program. The Transportation Worker 
Identification Credential (TWIC[supreg]) program is a DHS program 
administered jointly by TSA and the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG) to mitigate 
threats and vulnerabilities in the national maritime transportation 
system. The program implements authorities set forth in the Aviation 
and Transportation Security Act (ATSA) (Pub. L. 107-71; Nov. 19, 2002; 
sec. 106), the Maritime Transportation Security Act of 2002 (MTSA) 
(Pub. L. 107-295; Nov. 25, 2002; sec. 102), and the Safe, Accountable, 
Flexible, Efficient Transportation Equity Act--A Legacy for Users 
(SAFETEA-LU) (Pub. L. 109-59; Aug. 10, 2005; sec. 7105), codified at 49 
U.S.C. 5103a(g). TSA and the USCG implemented these requirements 
through a rulemaking codified at 33 CFR parts 105 and 106, and 49 CFR 
part 1572.
    TWIC[supreg] is a common credential for all personnel requiring 
unescorted access to secure areas of facilities and vessels regulated 
pursuant to requirements in the Maritime Transportation Security Act 
(MTSA) and certain mariners holding USCG credentials. Individuals in 
the field of transportation who are required to undergo an STA in 
certain other programs, such as the Chemical Facility Anti-Terrorism 
(CFATS) program, may also apply for a TWIC[supreg] and the associated 
security threat assessment to satisfy CFATS requirements.
    Before issuing an individual a TWIC[supreg], TSA performs an STA 
that includes checks of criminal history, immigration, and terrorism 
records. To conduct the STA, TSA must collect the following:
     Certain biographic information, including name, address, 
date of birth and other information;
     Fingerprints and photographs of applicants; and
     A $125.25 fee from applicants to cover the cost of the 
STA, as required by law (see 6 U.S.C. 469).
    TSA collects this information from applicants during an optional 
pre-enrollment step or during the enrollment session at an enrollment 
center.
    If TSA determines that the applicant is eligible to receive a 
TWIC[supreg] as a result of the STA, TSA issues and sends an activated 
TWIC[supreg] card to the address provided by the applicant or notifies 
the applicant that their TWIC[supreg] is ready for pick up and 
activation at an enrollment center. Once activated, this credential can 
be used for facility and vessel access control requirements to include 
card authentication, card validation, and identity verification. In the 
event of a lost, damaged or stolen credential, the cardholder must 
notify TSA immediately and may request a replacement card online, via 
telephone or, from an enrollment center for a $60.00 fee.
    TSA may also use the information to determine a TWIC[supreg] 
holder's eligibility to participate in TSA's expedited screening 
program for air travel, TSA PreCheckTM Application Program. 
Beginning April 2020, active (unexpired) TWIC[supreg] holders who meet 
the eligibility requirements for TSA PreCheck may use their 
TWIC[supreg] card's Credential Identification Number in the appropriate 
known traveler number field of an airline reservation to obtain 
expedited screening eligibility.
    TSA invites all TWIC[supreg] applicants to complete an optional 
survey to gather information on the applicants' overall customer 
satisfaction with the enrollment process. This optional survey is 
administered by a Trusted Agent (a representative of the TWIC[supreg] 
enrollment service provider, who performs enrollment functions) during 
the process to activate the TWIC[supreg].

[[Page 39928]]

These surveys are collected at each enrollment center and compiled to 
produce reports that are reviewed by the contractor and TSA.
    TSA estimates that there will be approximately 541,514 respondents 
to this TWIC[supreg] information collection. The current estimated 
annualized hour burden is 681,785 hours.
