Abstract: The Branch of Training and Inspection (BTI) in the Service’s Office of Law Enforcement coordinates and conducts training for Service special agents, wildlife inspectors, and administrative staff, as well as for State, Native American, and foreign individuals responsible for wildlife and habitat protection. Over the past decade, there have been substantial increases in the numbers of programs and individuals trained, hours of training provided, and numbers of training sites. There is a critical need for a comprehensive, reliable, and secure internet-based system capable of planning, coordinating, and tracking the increased training-associated information and workflow, as well as the associated equipment, materials, and supplies required to successfully accomplish and sustain our vital training environments. The BTI purchased the Acadis Readiness Suite, by Envisage Technologies. This software suite provides the Service with the opportunity to enhance the standardization of many of the internal PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 64157 processes associated with training and also provides us with an improved ability to respond to inquiries from Congress, the Department of the Interior, and other external agencies. The software suite will enhance the ability of the BTI to: • Schedule/track internal and external training events; • Improve the ability to register/track both our internal and external student population; • To maintain training records throughout the career of Service personnel; • To improve the ability to test and survey Service student populations; • To establish a robust lesson plan repository; and • To respond to inquiries from internal and external agencies. In order to administer this proposed collection of information, the Service will need to collect the following information from prospective trainees: • Full legal name; • Gender; • Country, city, and date of birth; • Work address, telephone number, and email address; • Official passport number, country of issue, expiration date, and national identification number (foreign government students only); • Emergency contact information; • Education, to include languages spoken; • Agency/department name and address; • Title/rank and level in agency; • Law enforcement officer experience; and • Supervisor’s name, email address, and phone number. The Service will use the information collected to record, track, and manage training records of domestic and foreign students affiliated with law enforcement agencies who attend training offered by the Service. The information will provide us with the capability to search the records of previous attendees (upon official inquiry only) by name, country of origin, or specific identifying number. We will only use students’ information in the Acadis Readiness Suite for administrative functions such as signing up/registering for training, training history, and training requirements. The authorities for the Service to collect the required information necessary to administer training programs utilizing the Acadis Readiness Suite include: • Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 668–668c); • Lacey Act (18 U.S.C. 42–43; 16 U.S.C. 3371–3378); E:\FR\FM\09OCN1.SGM 09OCN1 64158 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 197 / Friday, October 9, 2020 / Notices • National Wildlife Refuge System Administration Act (16 U.S.C. 668dd– 668ee); • Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act (16 U.S.C. 718–718h); • Migratory Bird Treaty Act (16 U.S.C. 703–712); • Endangered Species Act (16 U.S.C. 1531–1543); • Marine Mammal Protection Act (16 U.S.C. 1361–1407); • Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge Act (16 U.S.C. 721–731); • Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge Act (16 U.S.C. 690); • Refuge Recreation Act (16 U.S.C. 460k–460k–4); • Tariff Act of 1930 (19 U.S.C. 1202– 1527); • Uniform Federal Crime Reporting Act (28 U.S.C. 534); • Intelligence Reform and Terrorism Prevention Act of 2004 (Pub.

Service personnel;
     To improve the ability to test and survey Service student 
populations;
     To establish a robust lesson plan repository; and
     To respond to inquiries from internal and external 
agencies.
    In order to administer this proposed collection of information, the 
Service will need to collect the following information from prospective 
trainees:
     Full legal name;
     Gender;
     Country, city, and date of birth;
     Work address, telephone number, and email address;
     Official passport number, country of issue, expiration

     Agency/department name and address;
     Title/rank and level in agency;
     Law enforcement officer experience; and
     Supervisor's name, email address, and phone number.
    The Service will use the information collected to record, track, 
and manage training records of domestic and foreign students affiliated 
with law enforcement agencies who attend training offered by the 
Service. The information will provide us with the capability to search 
the records of previous attendees (upon official inquiry only) by name, 
country of origin, or specific identifying number. We will only use 
students' information in the Acadis Readiness Suite for administrative 
functions such as signing up/registering for training, training 
history, and training requirements.

necessary to administer training programs utilizing the Acadis 
Readiness Suite include:
