SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 I. Abstract This request is for a revision and extension of a currently approved information collection. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Coastal Ocean Program (COP), now known as the Competitive Research Program (CRP) under the National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science, provides direct financial assistance through grants and cooperative agreements for research supporting the management of coastal ecosystems and the NOAA RESTORE Science Program (RSP). The statutory authority for COP is Public Law 102– 567 Section 201 (Coastal Ocean Program). NOAA was authorized to establish and administer the Restore Science Program, in consultation with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, by the Resources and Ecosystems Sustainability, Tourist Opportunities, and Revived Economies (RESTORE) of the Gulf States Act of 2012 (Pub. L. 112– 141, Section 1604). Identified in the RESTORE Act as the Gulf Coast Ecosystem restoration Science, Observation, Monitoring, and Technology Program, the Program is commonly known as the NOAA RESTORE Science Program. In addition to standard government application requirements, applicants for financial assistance are required to submit a project summary form, current and pending form, and a key contacts form for both programs. CRP recipients are required to file annual progress reports and a project final report using CRP formats. The RSP are required to file semi-annual progress reports, a final report, and a Gantt chart showing project milestones using RSP formats. All of these requirements are needed for better evaluation of proposals and monitoring of awards. Several revisions are being requested for this information collection. The approved annual and final reports for CRP will be revised to include the request for publication digital object identifiers (DOIs). The RSP semi-annual and final reports will be revised to include end-user details. Finally, the Current and Pending Support form is being updated to require applicants disclose all sources of current and pending research support, contractual or otherwise, direct and indirect, including current and pending private and public sources of funding or income, both VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:56 Oct 04, 2021 Jkt 256001 foreign and domestic. Other support should include all resources made available to a Covered Person in support of and/or related to all of their professional research and development efforts, including resources provided directly to the Covered Person rather than through the research institution, and regardless of whether they have monetary value (e.g., even if the support received is only in-kind, such as office/ laboratory space, equipment, supplies, or employees). This should include resource and/or financial support from all foreign and domestic entities, including but not limited to, gifts provided with terms or conditions, financial support for laboratory personnel, and participation of student and visiting researchers supported by other sources of funding. II. Method of Collection Respondents have a choice of either electronic or paper forms. III. Data OMB Control Number: 0648–0384. Form Number: None. Type of Review: Regular submission (revision/extension of a currently approved collection). Affected Public: Non-profit institutions; State, local, or tribal government; business or other for-profit organizations. Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,200. Estimated Time per Response: 30 minutes each for a project summary, key contacts and current and pending federal support; 6 hours for a semiannual report; 6 hours for an annual report, 10.5 hours for a CRP final report, 10.5 hours for the RSP final report; and 1 hour for the milestone Gantt chart. Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 1,875. Estimated Total Annual Cost to Public: $0 in recordkeeping/reporting costs. Respondent’s Obligation: Mandatory. IV.
