OMB Final Sequestration Report to the President and Congress for Fiscal Year 2021, 7423-7424 [2021-01568]

Download as PDF 7423 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 17 / Thursday, January 28, 2021 / Notices requirements of work in today’s economy as crucial to the equitable and efficient operation of the Social Security Disability (SSDI) program. The ORS collects data from a sample of employers. These requirements of work data consist of information about the duties, responsibilities, and critical job tasks for a sample of occupations for each sampled employer. II. Current Action Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the Occupational Requirements Survey. The ORS collects data on the requirements of work, as defined by the SSA’s disability program: (1) An indicator of ‘‘time to proficiency,’’ defined as the amount of time required by a typical worker to learn the techniques, acquire the information, and develop the facility needed for average job performance, comparable to the Specific Vocational Preparation (SVP) used in the Dictionary of Occupational Titles (DOT). (2) Physical Demand characteristics/ factors of occupations, measured in such a way to support SSA disability determination needs, comparable to measures in Appendix C of the Selected Characteristics of Occupations (SCO). (3) Environmental Conditions, measured in such a way to support SSA disability determination needs, comparable to measures in Appendix D of the SCO. (4) Data elements that describe the mental and cognitive demands of work. (5) Occupational task lists of occupations, defined as the critical job function and key job tasks, to validate the reported requirements of work, comparable to data identified in the Employment and Training Administration’s (ETA’s) O*NET Program. The ORS data is collected using a two-stage stratified design and includes sample cell definitions and allocations to accommodate the goal to produce estimates for as many occupations as possible. Occupations for private industry establishments are selected before the sample is fielded. Occupational selection for government units generally occurs after establishment contact. The probability of an occupation being selected after the sample is fielded will be proportionate to its employment within the establishment. BLS will disseminate the data from the ORS on the BLS public website (www.bls.gov/ors). The design uses a five-year rotation with complete estimates published after the full sample has been collected. Interim results will be produced and disseminated on an annual basis. ORS collection uses several forms (having unique private industry and government collection versions). For those sampled establishments that are in the current National Compensation Survey (NCS), ORS uses NCS data and forms for those data elements that overlap. ORS data are defined to balance SSA’s adjudication needs with the ability of the respondent to provide data. With this clearance, BLS is continuing collection of existing data. III. Desired Focus of Comments The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in comments that: • Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility. • Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the methodology and assumptions used. • Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. • Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic submissions of responses. Title of Collection: Occupational Requirements Survey. OMB Number: 1220–0189. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Affected Public: Businesses or other for-profit; not-for-profit institutions; and State, local, and tribal government. All figures in the table below are based on a three-year average.

[FR Doc. 2021–01568 Filed 1–27–21; 8:45 am] BILLING CODE 3110–01–P OFFICE OF MANAGEMENT AND BUDGET Memorandum for the Heads of Executive Departments and Agencies January 20, 2021. FROM: Ronald A. Klain, Assistant to the President and Chief of Staff. SUBJECT: Regulatory Freeze Pending Review. The President has asked me to communicate to each of you his plan for managing the Federal regulatory process at the outset of his Administration. In order to ensure that the President’s appointees or designees have the opportunity to review any new or VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:16 Jan 27, 2021 Jkt 253001 pending rules, at the direction of the President, I ask that you immediately take the following steps: 1. Subject to any exceptions the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (the ‘‘OMB Director’’) allows for emergency situations or other urgent circumstances relating to health, safety, environmental, financial, or national security matters, or otherwise, propose or issue no rule in any manner— including by sending a rule to the Office of the Federal Register (the ‘‘OFR’’)— until a department or agency head appointed or designated by the President after noon on January 20, 2021, reviews and approves the rule. The department or agency head may delegate this power of review and approval to any other person so appointed or designated by the President, consistent with applicable law. 2. With respect to rules that have been sent to the OFR but not published in the Federal Register, immediately withdraw them from the OFR for review and approval as described in paragraph 1, subject to the exceptions described in paragraph 1. This withdrawal must be conducted consistent with OFR procedures. 3. With respect to rules that have been published in the Federal Register, or rules that have been issued in any manner, but have not taken effect, consider postponing the rules’ effective dates for 60 days from the date of this memorandum, consistent with applicable law and subject to the exceptions described in paragraph 1, for the purpose of reviewing any questions of fact, law, and policy the rules may raise. For rules postponed in this manner, during the 60-day period, where appropriate and consistent with applicable law, consider opening a 30day comment period to allow interested parties to provide comments about issues of fact, law, and policy raised by those rules, and consider pending petitions for reconsideration involving such rules. As appropriate and consistent with applicable law, and where necessary to continue to review these questions of fact, law, and policy, consider further delaying, or publishing for notice and comment proposed rules further delaying, such rules beyond the 60-day period. Following the 60-day delay in effective date: a. For those rules that raise no substantial questions of fact, law, or policy, no further action needs to be taken; and b. for those rules that raise substantial questions of fact, law, or policy, agencies should notify the OMB Director and take further appropriate PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 action in consultation with the OMB Director. 4. Exclude from the actions requested in paragraphs 1 through 3 any rules subject to statutory or judicial deadlines and identify such exclusions to the OMB Director as soon as possible. 5. Notify the OMB Director promptly of any rules that, in your view, should be excluded from the directives in paragraphs 1 through 3 because those rules affect critical health, safety, environmental, financial, or national security matters, or for some other reason. The OMB Director will review any such notifications and determine whether such exclusion is appropriate under the circumstances. 6. Comply in all circumstances with any applicable Executive Orders concerning regulatory management. As used in this memorandum, ‘‘rule’’ has the definition set forth in section 551(4), title 5, United States Code. It also includes any ‘‘regulatory action,’’ as defined in section 3(e) of Executive Order 12866 of September 30, 1993, as amended, and any ‘‘guidance document’’ as defined in section 3(g) of Executive Order 13422 of January 18, 2007, when that order was in effect. Thus, the requirements of this memorandum apply not only to ‘‘rules’’ as defined in section 551(4) of title 5, but also to: a. Any substantive action by an agency (normally published in the Federal Register) that promulgates or is expected to lead to the promulgation of a final rule or regulation, including notices of inquiry, advance notices of proposed rulemaking, and notices of proposed rulemaking; and b. any agency statement of general applicability and future effect that sets forth a policy on a statutory, regulatory, or technical issue or an interpretation of a statutory or regulatory issue. The OMB Director will implement this regulatory review, and any communications regarding any matters pertaining to this review should be addressed to the OMB Director. The OMB Director is also authorized to establish a process to review pending collections of information under the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, as codified in chapter 35, title 44, United States Code, and to take actions that the OMB Director deems appropriate based on that review, consistent with applicable law. Should actions be identified that were undertaken before noon on January 20, 2021, to frustrate the purpose underlying this memorandum, I may modify or extend this memorandum, pursuant to the direction of the President, to request that agency heads E:\FR\FM\28JAN1.SGM 28JAN1
