Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants; Initiation of 5-Year Status Reviews for 37 Southeastern Species, 37178-37181 [2021-14952]

Download as PDF lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 37178 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 132 / Wednesday, July 14, 2021 / Notices information, including each proposed extension of an existing collection of information, before submitting the collection to OMB for approval. To comply with this requirement, HUD is publishing notice of the proposed collection of information set forth in this document. Whether seeking a loan, Social Security benefits, veterans’ benefits, or other services provided by the Federal Government, individuals and businesses expect Government customer services to be efficient and intuitive, just like services from leading private-sector organizations. Yet the 2016 American Consumer Satisfaction Index and the 2017 Forrester Federal Customer Experience Index show that, on average, Government services lag nine percentage points behind the private sector. A modern, streamlined and responsive customer experience means: Raising government-wide customer experience to the average of the private sector service industry; developing indicators for high-impact Federal programs to monitor progress towards excellent customer experience and mature digital services; and providing the structure (including increasing transparency) and resources to ensure customer experience is a focal point for agency leadership. To support this, OMB Circular A–11 Section 280 established government-wide standards for mature customer experience organizations in government and measurement. To enable Federal programs to deliver the experience taxpayers deserve, they must undertake three general categories of activities: conduct ongoing customer research, gather and share customer feedback, and test services and digital products. These data collection efforts may be either qualitative or quantitative in nature or may consist of mixed methods. Additionally, data may be collected via a variety of means, including but not limited to electronic or social media, direct or indirect observation (i.e., in person, video and audio collections), interviews, questionnaires, surveys, and focus groups. HUD will limit its inquiries to data collections that solicit strictly voluntary opinions or responses. Steps will be taken to ensure anonymity of respondents in each activity covered by this request. The results of the data collected will be used to improve the delivery of Federal services and programs. It will include the creation of personas, customer journey maps, and reports and summaries of customer feedback data and user insights. It will also provide VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:49 Jul 13, 2021 Jkt 253001 government-wide data on customer experience that can be displayed on performance.gov to help build transparency and accountability of Federal programs to the customers they serve. Method of Collection: HUD will collect this information by electronic means when possible, as well as by mail, fax, telephone, technical discussions, and in-person interviews. HUD may also utilize observational techniques to collect this information. Below is a preliminary estimate of the aggregate burden hours for this new collection. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development will provide refined estimates of burden in subsequent notices. Average Expected Annual Number of Activities: Approximately five types of customer experience activities such as feedback surveys, focus groups, user testing, and interviews. Average Number of Respondents per Activity: 1 response per respondent per activity. Annual Responses: 500,000. Average Minutes per Response: 2 minutes–60 minutes, dependent upon activity. Burden Hours: The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development requests approximately 25,000 burden hours. B. Solicitation of Public Comment This notice is soliciting comments from members of the public and affected parties concerning the collection of information described in Section A on the following: Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for OMB approval. Comments are invited on: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on respondents, including through the use of automated collection techniques or other forms of information technology; and (e) estimates of capital or start-up costs and costs of operation, maintenance, and purchase of services to provide information. Burden means the total time, effort, or financial resources expended by persons to generate, maintain, retain, disclose or provide information to or for a Federal agency. This includes the time needed PO 00000 Frm 00065 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 to review instructions; to develop, acquire, install and utilize technology and systems for the purpose of collecting, validating and verifying information, processing and maintaining information, and disclosing and providing information; to train personnel and to be able to respond to a collection of information, to search data sources, to complete and review the collection of information; and to transmit or otherwise disclose the information. All written comments will be available for public inspection Regulations.gov. 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 Office of Management and Budget control number. HUD encourages interested parties to submit comment in response to these questions. C. Authority Section 3507 of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35.

A 5year status review is based on the best scientific and commercial data available at the time of the review; therefore, we are requesting submission of any such information that has become available since the last review for the species, particularly information on the status, threats, and recovery of the species that may have become available. Why do we conduct 5-year reviews? Under the ESA, we maintain Lists of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife and Plants (which we collectively refer to as the List) in title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.11(h) (for wildlife) and 50 CFR 17.12(h) (for plants). Listed wildlife and plants can also be found at http://ecos.fws.gov/ Status (endangered or threatened) States where the species is known to occur 37179 tess_public/pub/listedAnimals.jsp and http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/ listedPlants.jsp, respectively. Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the ESA requires us to review each listed species’ status at least once every 5 years. Our regulations at 50 CFR 424.21 require that we publish a notice in the Federal Register announcing species under active review; however, we may review the status of any species at any time based upon a petition or other information available to us.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: We, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, are 
initiating 5-year status reviews under the Endangered Species Act of 
1973, as amended (ESA; 16 U.S.C. 1531 et seq.), for 21 plant and 16 
animal species. A 5-year status review is based on the best scientific 
and commercial data available at the time of the review; therefore, we 
are requesting submission of any such information that has become 
available since the last review for the species, particularly 
information on the status, threats, and recovery of the species that 
may have become available.

Why do we conduct 5-year reviews?

    Under the ESA, we maintain Lists of Endangered and Threatened 
Wildlife and Plants (which we collectively refer to as the List) in 
title 50 of the Code of Federal Regulations at 50 CFR 17.11(h) (for 
wildlife) and 50 CFR 17.12(h) (for plants). Listed wildlife and plants 
can also be found at http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/listedAnimals.jsp and http://ecos.fws.gov/tess_public/pub/listedPlants.jsp, respectively. Section 4(c)(2)(A) of the ESA requires

the Federal Register announcing species under active review; however, 
we may review the status of any species at any time based upon a 
petition or other information available to us. For additional 
information about 5-year reviews, refer to our fact sheet at http://www.fws.gov/endangered/what-we-do/recovery-overview.html.

What information do we consider in our 5-year reviews?

    A 5-year review considers all new information available at the time 
of the review. In conducting the review, we consider the best 
scientific and commercial data that have become available since the 
most recent status review. Specifically, we are seeking new information 
regarding:
    (1) Species biology, including but not limited to life history and 
habitat requirements and impact tolerance thresholds;
    (2) Historical and current population conditions, including but not 
limited to population abundance, trends, distribution, demographics, 
and genetics;
    (3) Historical and current habitat conditions, including but not 
limited to amount, distribution, and suitability;
    (4) Historical and current threats, threat trends, and threat 
projections in relation to the five listing factors (as defined in 
section 4(a)(1) of the ESA);
    (5) Conservation measures for the species that have been 
implemented or are planned; and
    (6) Other new information, data, or corrections, including but not 
limited to taxonomic or nomenclatural changes, identification of 
erroneous information contained in the List, and improved analytical 
methods.
    Any new information received will be considered during the 5-year 
review and may be useful in evaluating ongoing recovery programs for 
the species.
