Download as PDF jbell on DSKJLSW7X2PROD with NOTICES 80132 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 239 / Friday, December 11, 2020 / Notices transportation originating at airports in the United States. The September 11th Security Fee is collected by TSA and transmitted to the U.S. Treasury Department to offset the Federal Government’s costs of providing civil aviation security services and other purposes designated by section 44940. This information collection requires air carriers to submit to TSA information regarding the amount of September 11th Security Fees an air carrier has imposed, collected, refunded to passengers, and remitted to TSA. The retention of this data is necessary for TSA to ensure the proper imposition, collection, and regulation the September 11th Security Fee. Additionally, TSA collects the information to monitor carrier compliance with the fee requirements and for auditing purposes. Air carriers are required to retain this information for three years. Specifically, information collected during a given fiscal year (October 1 through September 30) must be retained through three subsequent fiscal years. For example, information collected during fiscal year 2020 must be retained through fiscal year 2023. TSA’s regulations require air carriers to impose and collect the fee on passengers, and to submit the fee to TSA by the final day of the calendar month following the month in which the fee was collected. See 49 CFR 1510.13. Air carriers are further required to submit quarterly reports to TSA, which indicate the amount of the fees imposed, collected, and refunded to passengers, and remitted to TSA. See 49 CFR 1510.17. Each air carrier that collects security service fees from more than 50,000 passengers annually is also required to submit to TSA an annual independent audit, performed by an independent certified public accountant, of its security service fee activities and accounts. See 49 CFR 1510.15. Although the annual independent audit requirements were suspended on January 23, 2003 (see 68 FR 3192), TSA conducts its own audits of the air carriers. See 49 CFR 1510.11. Notwithstanding the suspension of the audit requirements, air carriers must establish and maintain an accounting system to account for the security service fees imposed, collected, refunded to passengers and remitted to TSA. See 49 CFR 1510.15(a). TSA is seeking an extension of this collection to require air carriers to continue submitting the quarterly reports to TSA, and to require air carriers to retain the information for three fiscal years after the fiscal year in which the information was collected. This requirement includes retaining the VerDate Sep<11>2014 23:25 Dec 10, 2020 Jkt 253001 source information for the quarterly reports remitted to TSA as well as the calculations performed to create the reports submitted to TSA. Should the annual audit requirement be reinstated, the requirement would include information and documents reviewed and prepared for the independent audit; the accountant’s working papers, notes, worksheets, and other relevant documentation used in the audit; and, if applicable, the specific information leading to the accountant’s opinion, including any determination that the accountant could not provide an audit opinion. Although TSA suspended the independent audit requirement, TSA conducts audits of the air carriers, and therefore, requires air carriers to retain and provide the same information as required for the quarterly reports and independent audits. TSA has incorporated minor adjustments to the figures used to estimate the costs of this ICR. The adjustments consider changes in the number of regulated air carriers and various administrative cost rates since the previous extension. TSA estimates that 170 total respondent air carriers will each spend approximately 1 hour to prepare and submit each quarterly report. TSA estimates that these respondents will incur a total of 680 hours (170 carriers × 4 quarterly reports × 1 hour per report) to satisfy the quarterly reporting requirements annually. TSA estimates 274 total responses from all respondent air carriers (170 plus 104, should the annual audit requirement be reinstated), with 2,760 burden hours (680 hours for quarterly reports and 2,080 hours for audits) annually to satisfy the quarterly report and audit requirements. TSA estimates that the 170 air carriers will each incur an average cost of $456.56 annually to satisfy the quarterly reporting requirement. This estimate includes $383.36 in labor for preparation of each quarterly report (4 reports × $95.84 per hour, each quarterly report is estimated to take 1 hour to prepare), $71.00 in annual records storage related costs, and $2.20 for postage to submit the report (4 stamps at 55 cents each). TSA estimates an aggregate annual cost of $77,615.20 ($456.56 cost × 170 air carriers) for all air carriers to prepare, store, and submit quarterly reports and a cost of $232,845.60 for the three-year extension period requested. Should TSA reinstate the audit requirement, TSA estimates that 104 air carriers, of the 170 total respondent carriers that collect fees from more than 50,000 passengers annually, would be PO 00000 Frm 00143 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 required to submit annual audits. These carriers would take approximately 20 hours for audit preparation, for a total of 2,080 hours (104 carriers × 20 hours per audit) annually. Air carriers required to submit annual audits would incur an average cost of $2,508.20 per audit. This estimate includes $2,433.40 in labor for preparation of each audit (20 hours per report × $121.67 per hour), $71.00 in annual records storage related costs, and $3.80 for postage to submit the report. TSA estimates an aggregate annual cost of $13,042.64 ($2,508.20 cost × 104 air carriers × .05 likelihood of audit to occur) for all air carriers to prepare, store, and summit the annual audit should the requirement be reinstated and $39,127.92 for the threeyear extension period requested.
