AGENCY: VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:00 Sep 23, 2020 Jkt 250001 B. Needs and Uses The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) provides that an agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and no person is required to respond to, PO 00000 Frm 00041 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 60165 nor be subject to, a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of information, unless that collection has obtained Office of Management and Budget (OMB) approval and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. DoD, GSA, and NASA requested and OMB authorized emergency processing of an information collection involved in this rule, as OMB Control Number 9000–0199 (FAR case 2018–017), from the provision at FAR 52.204–24, Representation Regarding Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services and the clause at FAR 52.204–25, Prohibition on Contracting for Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment, consistent with 5 CFR 1320.13. DoD, GSA, and NASA have determined the following conditions have been met: a. The collection of information is needed prior to the expiration of time periods normally associated with a routine submission for review under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, in view of the deadline for this provision of the NDAA which was signed into law in August 2018 and requires action before the prohibition goes into effect on August 13, 2019. b. The collection of information is essential to the mission of the agencies to ensure the Federal Government does not purchase prohibited equipment, systems and services, and can respond appropriately if any such purchases are not identified until after delivery or use. c. The use of normal clearance procedures would prevent the collection of information from contractors, for national security purposes. This requirement supports implementation of Section 889 of Title VII of the National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2019 (Pub. L. 115–232). This section prohibits agencies from procuring, obtaining, extending or renewing a contract to procure or obtain any equipment, system, or service that uses covered telecommunication equipment or services as a substantial or essential component of any system, or as a critical technology as part of any system on or after August 13, 2019 unless an exception applies. This requirement is implemented in the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) through the provision at FAR 52.204–24, Representation Regarding Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment and the clause at FAR 52.204–25, Prohibition on Contracting for Certain Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Proposed Project ‘‘Safety Program in Perinatal Care (SPPC)-II Demonstration Project’’ The SPPC–II Demonstration Project has the following goals: (1) To implement the integrated AIM– SPPC II program in birthing hospitals in OK and TX in coordination with the Alliance for Innovation on Maternal Health program (AIM) and the respective state PQC (Perinatal Quality Collaborative); (2) To assess the implementation of the integrated AIM–SPPC II program in these hospitals; and (3) To ascertain the short- and medium-term impact of the integrated AIM–SPPC II program on hospital (i.e., perinatal unit) teamwork and communication, patient safety, and key maternal health outcomes. The information collected for this Demonstration Project will be used to evaluate the implementation and impact of the SPPC–II program overlaid with AIM patient safety bundles in birthing hospitals in OK and TX. More specifically, the project will: (a) Provide information on whether the proposed integration of AIM and SPPC–II programs can be implemented as intended, i.e., through the use of a two-tier approach for training all clinical staff in all hospitals, coordination by the AIM Team Lead of the rollout of training clinical staff using e-modules on teamwork and communication, facilitation by AIM Team Leads of in-person sessions to practice teamwork and communication tools and strategies; or, what changes are needed to better facilitate program implementation; (b) provide information regarding the impact of the integrated AIM–SPPC II program on use of teamwork and communication tools and strategies, teamwork and communication metrics, patient safety culture changes, AIM bundle implementation, and key maternal health outcomes; and (c) provide information regarding the sustainability of the integrated AIM– SPPC II program 18 months after implementation. Due to pandemic-related impacts on the SPPC–II study population, we propose updating the SPPC–II data collection by (1) adding questions to the approved qualitative interview guide at 3–4 months to include pandemic-related questions to better understand the implementation context, (2) adding an additional qualitative interview E:\FR\FM\24SEN1.SGM 24SEN1

Telecommunications and Video Surveillance Services or Equipment.

B. Needs and Uses

    The Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) 
provides that an agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a 
collection of information, and no person is required to respond to, nor 
be subject to, a penalty for failure to comply with a collection of 
information, unless that collection has obtained Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) approval and displays a currently valid OMB Control 
Number.
    DoD, GSA, and NASA requested and OMB authorized emergency 
processing of an information collection involved in this rule, as OMB 
Control Number 9000-0199 (FAR case 2018-017), from the provision at FAR 
52.204-24, Representation Regarding Certain Telecommunications and 
Video Surveillance Services and the clause at FAR 52.204-25, 
Prohibition on Contracting for Certain Telecommunications and Video 
Surveillance Services or Equipment, consistent with 5 CFR 1320.13. DoD, 
GSA, and NASA have determined the following conditions have been met:
    a. The collection of information is needed prior to the expiration 
of time periods normally associated with a routine submission for 
review under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act, in view of 
the deadline for this provision of the NDAA which was signed into law 
in August 2018 and requires action before the prohibition goes into 
effect on August 13, 2019.
    b. The collection of information is essential to the mission of the 
agencies to ensure the Federal Government does not purchase prohibited 
equipment, systems and services, and can respond appropriately if any 
such purchases are not identified until after delivery or use.
    c. The use of normal clearance procedures would prevent the 
collection of information from contractors, for national security 
purposes.
