However, the revision in terminology will be made before the system is launched. • UC Incident Review (Form M– 5A)—Changed the full name of the form from ‘‘Sexual Abuse and Sexual Harassment UAC Incident Review’’ to ‘‘PSA UC Incident Review.’’ • Adult Incident Review (Form M– 5B)—Changed the full name of the form from ‘‘Sexual Abuse and Sexual Harassment Adult Incident Review’’ to ‘‘PSA Adult Incident Review.’’ • UC Questionnaires (Forms M–12A, M–12B, and M–12E)—Add a new version of the questionnaire designed for children ages 5 and under. Translate all three versions of the questionnaire into Spanish. • Secure Client Questionnaire (Form M–12D)—Reformat the form, update the directions, and re-phrased some of the questions so that they are in line with ORR’s other child questionnaires (Forms M12–A to M–12C). • Shelter Site Visit Guide (Form (Form M–7A)—Revised question 6 in the ‘‘Background Checks’’ section to request a background check list for all staff, not just staff hired within the past 2 years. The average burden minutes per response was increased from 12 hours to 13 hours for respondents and from 28 hours to 29 hours for federal and contractor monitors. • Remove the following instruments from the information collection. These instruments will be completed by federal staff as part of their normal job duties and by less than 10 contractor staff. Therefore, they are no longer subject to PRA requirements.

similar incident from occurring again.

     Replace the term ``unaccompanied alien child (UAC)'' with 
``unaccompanied child (UC)'' throughout the instruments in this 
collection. Note that the screenshots of UC Path instruments attached 
to this memo do not reflect this change because it has not yet been 
developed in the system. However, the revision in terminology will be 
made before the system is launched.

form, update the directions, and re-phrased some of the questions so 
that they are in line with ORR's other child questionnaires (Forms M12-
A to M-12C).
     Shelter Site Visit Guide (Form (Form M-7A)--Revised 
question 6 in the ``Background Checks'' section to request a background 
check list for all staff, not just staff hired within the past 2 years. 
The average burden minutes per response was increased from 12 hours to 
13 hours for respondents and from 28 hours to 29 hours for federal and

collection. These instruments will be completed by federal staff as 
part of their normal job duties and by less than 10 contractor staff. 
Therefore, they are no longer subject to PRA requirements.
