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. B. Annual Reporting Burden Respondents: 1200. Responses per Respondent: 1. Hours per Response: 1. Total Burden Hours: 1200. C. Public Comments Public comments are particularly invited on: Whether this collection of information is necessary and whether it will have practical utility; whether our estimate of the public burden of this PO 00000 Frm 00042 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 40843 collection of information is accurate and based on valid assumptions and methodology; ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected. Obtaining Copies of Proposals: Requesters may obtain a copy of the information collection documents from the GSA Regulatory Secretariat Division, by calling 202–501–4755 or emailing GSARegSec@gsa.gov.
