(3) The agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the Department sponsoring the collection: The form number for the questionnaire is NSP–20. The applicable component within the Department of Justice is the Bureau of Justice Statistics, in the Office of Justice Programs. (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as well as a brief abstract: Respondents will be local prosecutors who handle criminal cases in State courts. Prosecutors represent the local government in deciding who is charged with a crime, the type and number of charges filed, whether or not to offer a plea, and providing sentencing recommendations for those convicted of crimes. Since 1990, the NSP has been the only recurring national statistical program that captures the administrative and operational characteristics of the prosecutorial function in the State criminal justice system. Similar to previous iterations, the NSP–20 will gather national statistics on local prosecutor office staffing, budgets, and caseloads. Additionally, the NSP–20 will collect data on emerging topics such as the utilization of diversion programs and specialty courts. BJS plans to publish this information in reports and reference it when responding to queries from the U.S. Congress, Executive Office of the President, the U.S. Supreme Court, state officials, international organizations, researchers, students, the media, and others interested in criminal justice statistics. (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: An office-level survey will be sent to approximately 750 respondents. At the time of the 60-day notice, the expected burden was about 60 minutes per respondent. (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated with the collection: At the time of the 60-day notice, there was an estimated 1,000 total burden hours associated with this collection.
