SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: A. Purpose Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 ‘‘Policy for a Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors’’ requires the implementation of a governmentwide standard for secure and reliable forms of identification for Federal employees and contractors. OMB’s implementing instructions requires all contract employees requiring routine access to federally controlled facilities for greater than six (6) months to receive a background investigation. The minimum background investigation is Tier 1 and the Office of Personnel Management offers a Tier 1C for child care.

The childcare providers are required to complete the criminal history background checks mandated in the Crime Control Act of 1990, Public Law 101–647, dated November 29, 1990, as amended by Public Law 102–190, dated December 5, 1991. These statutes require that each employee of a childcare center located in a Federal building or in leased space must undergo a background check. According to GSA policy, childcare workers (as described above) will need to submit the following: 1. An original signed copy of a Basic National Agency Check Criminal History, GSA Form 176; and 2. Two sets of fingerprints on FBI Fingerprint Cards, for SF–87 and/or electronic prints from an enrollment center. 3. Electronically submit the e-qip (SF85) application for completion of the Tier 1C.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

A. Purpose

    Homeland Security Presidential Directive (HSPD) 12 ``Policy for a 
Common Identification Standard for Federal Employees and Contractors'' 
requires the implementation of a governmentwide standard for secure and 
reliable forms of identification for Federal employees and contractors. 
OMB's implementing instructions requires all contract employees 
requiring routine access to federally controlled facilities for greater 
than six (6) months to receive a background investigation. The minimum 
background investigation is Tier 1 and the Office of Personnel 
Management offers a Tier 1C for child care.
    However, there is no requirement in the law or HSPD-12 that 
requires childcare employees to be subject to the Tier 1C since 
employees of childcare providers are neither government employees nor 
government contractors. The childcare providers are required to 
complete the criminal history background checks mandated in the Crime 
Control Act of 1990, Public Law 101-647, dated November 29, 1990, as 
amended by Public Law 102-190, dated December 5, 1991. These statutes 
require that each employee of a childcare center located in a Federal 
building or in leased space must undergo a background check.
    According to GSA policy, childcare workers (as described above) 
will need to submit the following:
    1. An original signed copy of a Basic National Agency Check 
Criminal History, GSA Form 176; and
    2. Two sets of fingerprints on FBI Fingerprint Cards, for SF-87 
and/or electronic prints from an enrollment center.
    3. Electronically submit the e-qip (SF85) application for 
completion of the Tier 1C.
    This is not a request to collect new information; this is a request 
to change the form that is currently being used to collect this 
information.

collection of information is necessary and whether it will have 
practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this

the information to be collected.
