Abstract: The BIA is seeking to renew the information collection conducted under 25 CFR 23, related to the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). The BIA collects information using a consolidated caseload form, which Tribal ICWA program directors complete. The BIA uses the information to determine the extent of service needs in local Indian communities, assess ICWA program effectiveness, and provide date for the annual program budget justification. The aggregated report is not considered confidential. This form must be completed by federally recognized Tribes that operate child protection programs. Submission of this information by federally recognized Tribes allows the BIA to consolidate and review selected data on Indian child welfare cases. The data is useful on a local level, to the Tribes and Tribal entities that collect it, for case management purposes. The data are useful on a nationwide basis for planning and budget purposes. Title of Collection: Indian Child Welfare Quarterly and Annual Report. OMB Control Number: 1076–0131. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents/Affected Public: Federally recognized Tribes or Tribal entities that are operating programs for Tribes. Total Estimated Number of Annual Respondents: 940 per year, on average. PO 00000 Frm 00058 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 75029 Total Estimated Number of Annual Responses: 3,760 per year, on average. Estimated Completion Time per Response: Approximately 15 minutes for Part A—ICWA Data; approximately 15 minutes for Part B—Tribal Child Abuse and Neglect Data. Total Estimated Number of Annual Burden Hours: 940, per year on average. Respondent’s Obligation: A response is required to obtain a benefit. Frequency of Collection: Four times per year for the Part A—ICWA Data; if applicable, four times per year for Part B—Tribal Child Abuse Neglect Data. Total Estimated Annual Nonhour Burden Cost: $0. An agency may not conduct or sponsor and a person is not required to respond to a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The authority for this action is the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq). Elizabeth K. Appel, Director, Office of Regulatory Affairs and Collaborative Action—Indian Affairs.

Rescindment of a system of records notice. AGENCY: ACTION: The Department of the Interior (DOI) is issuing a public notice of its intent to rescind the Privacy Act system of records, INTERIOR/DOI–79, Interior Personnel Records, from its inventory because it is duplicative with existing system of records notice requirements. During a review of DOI system of records notices, it was determined that personnel records of current and recently separated DOI employees maintained by DOI are covered under the government-wide system of records notice, OPM/GOVT– 1, General Personnel Records, and the DOI system of records notice, INTERIOR/DOI–85, Payroll, Attendance, Retirement, and Leave Records. This rescindment will eliminate an unnecessary duplicate notice and promote the overall streamlining and management of DOI Privacy Act systems of records. DATES: These changes take effect on November 24, 2020. SUMMARY: E:\FR\FM\24NON1.SGM 24NON1
