ACTION: Notice; correction; Notice of changes to the 2020 Census PostEnumeration Survey (PES) Initial Housing Follow-Up (IHUFU) field operation. AGENCY: This document constitutes a notice of intent to provide a 30-day comment period on schedule changes, procedures for collecting information changes and estimate of hour of burden changes to the approved information collection for the 2020 Census PostEnumeration Survey (PES) Initial Housing Follow-Up (IHUFU) field operation. The Department of Commerce, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing information SUMMARY: collections, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Census Bureau is issuing this notice to inform the public of changes in schedule, procedures for collecting information, and estimate of hour of burden, associated with the notice for public comment, titled ‘‘2020 Census Post-Enumeration Survey Initial and Final Housing Unit Follow-Up,’’ published in the Federal Register on April 17, 2019 (Vol. 84, No. 74, pp. 16000–16002). The following highlights the proposed revisions and the reasons: 1. The PES IHUFU and IHUFU Quality Control operations will occur July 23, 2020, through September 21, 2020, instead of May 6, 2020, through June 19, 2020, because of COVID–19 restrictions. 2. Procedure changes for collecting information for the PES IHUFU field operation are proposed to minimize personal contact because of COVID–19. Originally, listers were instructed to contact a household member (or a proxy or by observation as a last resort) to complete IHUFU form (D–1303) at each housing unit (HU) selected for followup. Now listers are allowed to complete the form by observation first before attempting to interview by telephone or by a personal visit. For addresses that cannot be confirmed by observation, a letter will be sent to the addresses, along with the confidentiality notice, inviting respondents to call the lister to set up a telephone interview. If after five days Estimated number of respondents Operation jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES the IHUFU case cannot be completed by observation or the respondent has not followed up based on the letter, then a personal visit is required. If the respondent or the lister does not feel comfortable conducting the interview in person at the door, then the lister may ask for the phone number and conduct a telephone interview. 3. The estimated workload is now approximately 253,800 (172,000 original estimate) HUs for PES IHUFU in selected basic collection units (BCUs) in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, and 31,400 (8,000 original estimate) HUs for IHUFU in Puerto Rico. The Census Bureau originally underestimated the workload for 2020 Puerto Rico IHUFU, but the revised numbers reported in this document reflect the correct estimated workload. From the IHUFU workload, we will select a 15 percent sample of approximately 38,070 (25,800 original estimate) HUs from all BCUs in the 50 states and District of Columbia, and 4,710 (1,200 original estimate) HUs from all BCUs in Puerto Rico for the IHUFU QC operation. To calculate the estimated burden hours, we assumed a theoretical 100 percent response rate and a completion time of five minutes per case. The total estimated respondent burden for the IHUFU operation is approximately 27,333 (17,250) hours. However, since the Collection of Information has changed to primarily observation, the actual total respondent burden is expected to be less.

Public comments were previously requested via the Federal Register on April 20, 2020 during a 60-day comment period. This notice allows for an additional 30 days for public comments. Agency: Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), Commerce. Title: Expenditures Incurred by Recipients of Biomedical Research and Development Awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). OMB Control Number: 0608–0069. Form Number(s): None. Type of Request: Regular submission, extension of a current information collection. Number of Respondents: 150. Average Hours per Response: 16 hours is the average but may vary among respondents because of differences in institution structure, size, and complexity. Burden Hours: 2,400 hours. Needs and Uses: The survey obtains the distribution of expenditures incurred by recipients of biomedical research awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and will provide information on how the NIH award amounts are expended across several major categories. This information, along with wage and price data from other published sources, will be used to generate the Biomedical Research and Development Price Index (BRDPI). The Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) of the Department of Commerce develops this index for NIH under a reimbursable contract. The BRDPI is an index of prices paid for the labor, supplies, equipment, and other inputs required to perform the biomedical research the NIH supports in its intramural laboratories and through its awards to extramural organizations. The BRDPI is a vital tool for planning the NIH research budget and analyzing future NIH programs. A survey of award PO 00000 Frm 00011 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 recipients is currently the only means for updating the expenditure category weights that are used to prepare the BRDPI. A survey questionnaire with a cover letter that includes a brief description of, and rationale for, the survey will be sent to potential respondents by August 2020, 2021, and 2022. A report of the respondent’s expenditures of the NIH award amounts following the proposed format for expenditure categories attached to the survey’s cover letter, will be requested to be returned no later than December 8, which in most years will be approximately 120 days after mailing. Survey respondents will be selected based on award levels, which determine the weight of the respondent in the biomedical research and development price index. BEA proposes to survey 150 organizations that receive NIH biomedical research awards. This will include the top 100 organizations in total awards received; 40 additional organizations that are not primarily in the ‘‘Research and Development (R&D) contracts’’ category; and 10 additional organizations that are primarily in the ‘‘R&D contracts’’ category. Based on awards data for FY 2019 by type of organization, the top 100 organizations received $20.8 billion in awards (approximately 77 percent of total awards); the remaining awards-receiving organizations received $6.1 billion. Affected Public: Universities or other organizations that are NIH award recipients. Frequency: Annual. Respondent’s Obligation: Voluntary. Legal Authority: 45 CFR 75.302, 75.308, 75.361, and 75.364.

Notice of Correction; 2020 Census Post-Enumeration Survey Initial 
and Final Housing Unit Follow-Up

AGENCY: U.S. Census Bureau, Commerce.

ACTION: Notice; correction; Notice of changes to the 2020 Census Post-
Enumeration Survey (PES) Initial Housing Follow-Up (IHUFU) field 
operation.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: This document constitutes a notice of intent to provide a 30-
day comment period on schedule changes, procedures for collecting 
information changes and estimate of hour of burden changes to the 
approved information collection for the 2020 Census Post-Enumeration 
Survey (PES) Initial Housing Follow-Up (IHUFU) field operation. The 
Department of Commerce, as part of its continuing effort to reduce 
paperwork and respondent burden, invites the general public and other 
federal agencies to take this opportunity to comment on proposed and/or 
continuing information collections, as required by the Paperwork 
Reduction Act of 1995.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The U.S. Census Bureau is issuing this 
notice to inform the public of changes in schedule, procedures for 
collecting information, and estimate of hour of burden, associated with 
the notice for public comment, titled ``2020 Census Post-Enumeration 
Survey Initial and Final Housing Unit Follow-Up,'' published in the 
Federal Register on April 17, 2019 (Vol. 84, No. 74, pp. 16000-16002).
    The following highlights the proposed revisions and the reasons:
    1. The PES IHUFU and IHUFU Quality Control operations will occur 
July 23, 2020, through September 21, 2020, instead of May 6, 2020, 
through June 19, 2020, because of COVID-19 restrictions.
    2. Procedure changes for collecting information for the PES IHUFU 
field operation are proposed to minimize personal contact because of 
COVID-19. Originally, listers were instructed to contact a household 
member (or a proxy or by observation as a last resort) to complete 
IHUFU form (D-1303) at each housing unit (HU) selected for follow-up. 
Now listers are allowed to complete the form by observation first 
before attempting to interview by telephone or by a personal visit. For 
addresses that cannot be confirmed by observation, a letter will be 
sent to the addresses, along with the confidentiality notice, inviting 
respondents to call the lister to set up a telephone interview. If 
after five days the IHUFU case cannot be completed by observation or 
the respondent has not followed up based on the letter, then a personal 
visit is required. If the respondent or the lister does not feel 
comfortable conducting the interview in person at the door, then the 
lister may ask for the phone number and conduct a telephone interview.
    3. The estimated workload is now approximately 253,800 (172,000 
original estimate) HUs for PES IHUFU in selected basic collection units 
(BCUs) in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, and 31,400 (8,000 
original estimate) HUs for IHUFU in Puerto Rico. The Census Bureau 
originally underestimated the workload for 2020 Puerto Rico IHUFU, but 
the revised numbers reported in this document reflect the correct 
estimated workload.
    From the IHUFU workload, we will select a 15 percent sample of 
approximately 38,070 (25,800 original estimate) HUs from all BCUs in

To calculate the estimated burden hours, we assumed a theoretical 100 
percent response rate and a completion time of five minutes per case. 
The total estimated respondent burden for the IHUFU operation is 
approximately 27,333 (17,250) hours. However, since the Collection of 
Information has changed to primarily observation, the actual total 
respondent burden is expected to be less.
