Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 76 / Thursday, April 22, 2021 / Notices How long will this notice remain in effect? DEPARTMENT OF HOMELAND SECURITY This notice grants temporary relief until September 30, 2022, to eligible F– 1 nonimmigrant students. DHS will continue to monitor the situation in Syria. Should the special provisions authorized by this notice need modification or extension, DHS will announce such changes in the Federal Register. Transportation Security Administration Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) SUMMARY: An F–1 nonimmigrant student seeking off-campus employment authorization due to severe economic hardship must demonstrate to the DSO that this employment is necessary to avoid severe economic hardship. A DSO who agrees that a nonimmigrant student should receive such employment authorization must recommend an application approval to USCIS by entering information in the remarks field of the student’s SEVIS record. The authority to collect this information is in the SEVIS collection of information currently approved by the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) under OMB Control Number 1653–0038. This notice also allows eligible F–1 nonimmigrant students to request employment authorization, work an increased number of hours while the academic institution is in session, and reduce the student’s course load while continuing to maintain F–1 nonimmigrant student status. To apply for employment authorization, certain F–1 nonimmigrant students must complete and submit a currently approved Form I–765 according to the instructions on the form. OMB has previously approved the collection of information contained on the current Form I–765, consistent with the PRA (OMB Control No. 1615– 0040). Although there will be a slight increase in the number of Form I–765 filings because of this notice, the number of filings currently contained in the OMB annual inventory for Form I– 765 is sufficient to cover the additional filings. Accordingly, there is no further action required under the PRA. Alejandro N. Mayorkas, Secretary, U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: ADDRESSES: Comments Invited In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a valid OMB control number. The ICR documentation will be available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to— (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden; PO 00000 Frm 00072 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 21339 (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those who are to respond, including using appropriate automated, electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or other forms of information technology. Information Collection Requirement Purpose and Description of Data Collection To respond to public speaking invitations, TSA has created the Speaker Request Form, which collects information on the requestor and the event a speaker would attend. TSA is requesting OMB approval of the Speaker Request Form. The form requests the name of the organization and if it is a profit or nonprofit organization; the point of contact information for the person coordinating the event; the date, time, and location of the event; the type of event (e.g., keynote, dinner, panel, interview, etc.); the purpose of the event; the topics of discussion; the audience makeup; other notable guests; and if media will be attending. This basic contact information is needed to respond to the requestor, determine where to find a TSA speaker geographically, and what resources would be needed to send a speaker to the event. TSA also collects information to determine if it is in the best interests of the agency to send a speaker to the speaking engagement, if it aligns with the agency’s communication goals, and if it is, who should speak on behalf of the agency on the requested topics. The information is collected only once for any engagement and is completely voluntary on the part of the requestor. TSA is submitting the form as a Common Form to permit Federal agency users beyond the agency that created the form (e.g., Department of Homeland Security or U.S. Office of Personnel Management) to streamline the information collection process in coordination with OMB. TSA expects to receive approximately 300 speaker requests per year. The agency estimates that each respondent will spend approximately 10 minutes to complete the Speaker Request Form, for a total annual burden of 3,000 minutes (50 hours). Use of Results TSA Speaker’s Bureau will use the information on the form to determine which TSA speaker may attend the speaking engagement, if any. The organization and point of contact E:\FR\FM\22APN1.SGM 22APN1 21340 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 76 / Thursday, April 22, 2021 / Notices information is only shared with the proposed TSA speaker to allow the speaker to coordinate the day of logistics. The event information may be shared among TSA offices, particularly within the Strategic Communications and Public Affairs office to identify greater opportunities to align the engagement or the organization with its communication goals and possibly promote the TSA speaker on other external platforms. The form is emailed to the TSA Speaker’s Bureau which is limited to only the employees tasked with coordinating TSA speaking engagements. Any archiving of the forms information would be on a secure and closed system, accessible by only employees with system permissions and could be used to identify trends over time.

    In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. 
3501 et seq.), an agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is 
not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it

available at http://www.reginfo.gov upon its submission to OMB. 
Therefore, in preparation for OMB review and approval of the following 
information collection, TSA is soliciting comments to--
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement is 
necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, 
including whether the information will have practical utility;

Information Collection Requirement

Purpose and Description of Data Collection

    To respond to public speaking invitations, TSA has created the 
Speaker Request Form, which collects information on the requestor and 
the event a speaker would attend. TSA is requesting OMB approval of the 
Speaker Request Form. The form requests the name of the organization 
and if it is a profit or nonprofit organization; the point of contact 
information for the person coordinating the event; the date, time, and 
location of the event; the type of event (e.g., keynote, dinner, panel, 
interview, etc.); the purpose of the event; the topics of discussion; 
the audience makeup; other notable guests; and if media will be 
attending.
    This basic contact information is needed to respond to the 
requestor, determine where to find a TSA speaker geographically, and 
what resources would be needed to send a speaker to the event. TSA also 
collects information to determine if it is in the best interests of the 
agency to send a speaker to the speaking engagement, if it aligns with 
the agency's communication goals, and if it is, who should speak on 
behalf of the agency on the requested topics. The information is 
collected only once for any engagement and is completely voluntary on 
the part of the requestor.
    TSA is submitting the form as a Common Form to permit Federal 
agency users beyond the agency that created the form (e.g., Department 
of Homeland Security or U.S. Office of Personnel Management) to 
streamline the information collection process in coordination with OMB.
    TSA expects to receive approximately 300 speaker requests per year. 
The agency estimates that each respondent will spend approximately 10 
minutes to complete the Speaker Request Form, for a total annual burden 
of 3,000 minutes (50 hours).

Use of Results

    TSA Speaker's Bureau will use the information on the form to 
determine which TSA speaker may attend the speaking engagement, if any. 
The organization and point of contact

information is only shared with the proposed TSA speaker to allow the 
speaker to coordinate the day of logistics. The event information may 
be shared among TSA offices, particularly within the Strategic 
Communications and Public Affairs office to identify greater 
opportunities to align the engagement or the organization with its 
communication goals and possibly promote the TSA speaker on other 
external platforms.
    The form is emailed to the TSA Speaker's Bureau which is limited to 
only the employees tasked with coordinating TSA speaking engagements. 
Any archiving of the forms information would be on a secure and closed 
system, accessible by only employees with system permissions and could 
be used to identify trends over time.
