Download as PDF lotter on DSK11XQN23PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 31 / Tuesday, February 15, 2022 / Notices the Voluntary Agreement is effective until August 17, 2025, and may be extended subject to additional approval by the Attorney General after consultation with the Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission. The Agreement may be used to prepare for or respond to any pandemic, including COVID–19, during that time. On December 7, 2020, the first plan of action under the Voluntary Agreement—the Plan of Action to Establish a National Strategy for the Manufacture, Allocation, and Distribution of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to Respond to COVID– 19 (PPE Plan of Action)—was finalized.5 The PPE Plan of Action established several sub-committees under the Voluntary Agreement, focusing on different aspects of the PPE Plan of Action. On May 24, 2021, four additional plans of action under the Voluntary Agreement—the Plan of Action to Establish a National Strategy for the Manufacture, Allocation, and Distribution of Diagnostic Test Kits and other Testing Components to respond to COVID–19, the Plan of Action to Establish a National Strategy for the Manufacture, Allocation, and Distribution of Drug Products, Drug Substances, and Associated Medical Devices to respond to COVID–19, the Plan of Action to Establish a National Strategy for the Manufacture, Allocation, and Distribution of Medical Devices to respond to COVID–19, and the Plan of Action to Establish a National Strategy for the Manufacture, Allocation, and Distribution of Medical Gases to respond to COVID–19—were finalized.6 These plans of action established several sub-committees under the Voluntary Agreement, focusing on different aspects of each plan of action. The meetings are chaired by the FEMA Administrator’s delegates from the Office of Response and Recovery (ORR) and Office of Policy and Program Analysis (OPPA), attended by the Attorney General’s delegates from the U.S. Department of Justice, and attended by the Chairman of the Federal Trade Commission’s delegates. In implementing the Voluntary Agreement, FEMA adheres to all procedural requirements of 50 U.S.C. 4558 and 44 CFR part 332. Meeting Objectives: The objectives of the meetings are as follows: 1. Convene the Requirements SubCommittees under the Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and Diagnostic Test Kits Plans of Action to establish priorities related to the COVID–19 response under the Voluntary Agreement. 2. Gather Requirements SubCommittee Participants and Attendees to ask targeted questions for situational awareness. 3. Identify pandemic-related information gaps and areas that merit sharing by holding quarterly meetings of the Requirements Sub-Committees with key stakeholders. 4. Identify potential Objectives and Actions that should be completed under the Requirements Sub-Committees. Meetings Closed to the Public: By default, the DPA requires meetings held to implement a voluntary agreement or plan of action be open to the public.7 However, attendance may be limited if the Sponsor 8 of the voluntary agreement finds that the matter to be discussed at a meeting falls within the purview of matters described in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c), such as trade secrets and commercial or financial information. The Sponsor of the Voluntary Agreement, the FEMA Administrator, found that these meetings to implement the Voluntary Agreement involve matters which fall within the purview of matters described in 5 U.S.C. 552b(c) and the meetings are therefore closed to the public. Specifically, these meetings may require participants to disclose trade secrets or commercial or financial information that is privileged or confidential. Disclosure of such information allows for meetings to be closed to the public pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(4). The success of the Voluntary Agreement depends wholly on the willing participation of the private sector participants. Failure to close these meetings to the public could reduce active participation by the signatories due to a perceived risk that sensitive company information could be released to the public. A public disclosure of a private sector participant’s information executed prematurely could reduce trust and support for the Voluntary Agreement. A resulting loss of support by the participants for the Voluntary Agreement would significantly hinder the implementation of the Agency’s 7 See 5 See 85 FR 78869 (Dec. 7, 2020).

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Comment

agencies concerning the proposed collection of information should 
address one or more of the following four points:
    (1) Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is 
necessary for the proper performance of the

[[Page 8598]]

functions of the agency, including whether the information will have 
practical utility;
    (2) Evaluate the accuracy of the agency's estimate of the burden of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    (3) Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to 
be collected; and
    (4) Minimize the burden of the collection of information on those 
who are to respond, including through the use of appropriate automated, 
electronic, mechanical, or other technological collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology, e.g., permitting electronic

Overview of This Information Collection

    (1) Type of Information Collection: Revision of a Currently 
Approved Collection.
    (2) Title of the Form/Collection: Designation of Attorney in Fact/
Revocation of Attorney in Fact.
    (3) Agency form number, if any, and the applicable component of the 
Department of Homeland Security sponsoring the collection: I-312/I-
312A; U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.
    (4) Affected public who will be asked or required to respond, as 
well as a brief abstract: Primary: State, Local, or Tribal Government. 
Section 103.6, the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), provides for 
the posting of surety or cash bonds. All bonds posted in immigration 
cases shall be executed on Form I-352, Immigration Bond, and secured 
with some form of collateral by an Obligor. In the case of a cash bond, 
the Obligor will deposit with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement 
(ICE) the face value of the bond. The Obligor can designate a third 
party as an Attorney in Fact to accept on their behalf the return of 
the collateral security deposited to secure the surety bond upon 
cancellation of the bond or performance of the Obligor. The Form I- 
312, Designation of Attorney in Fact, is the instrument used by the 
Obligor to officially designate their Attorney in Fact. Upon receipt of 
a properly executed Form I-312, ICE Financial Operations will remit to 
the Attorney in Fact the principal and interest on the security deposit 
in the event of a bond cancellation, or the interest on the security 
deposit in the event of a bond breach. Immigration bonds might remain 
in place for years, and Obligors might choose to appoint a new Attorney 
in Fact as circumstances change. To ensure that ICE Financial 
Operations properly executes its fiduciary duties to the Obligor under 
the Form I-352 bond contract, and exercises due diligence in ensuring 
that remittances are made to the proper person, ICE uses Form I-312A as 
the document by which the Obligor could expressly indicate that a 
previously valid Form I-312 Attorney in Fact designation had been 
revoked. The requested revisions are specific to the instructions 
concerning obligor requirements and the attorney's authority to perform 
acts necessary to receive proceeds of the bond. There are revisions to 
the I-312 instructions. The revisions relate to the obligor 
requirements and to the attorney's authority to perform acts necessary 
to received bond proceeds.
    (5) An estimate of the total number of respondents and the amount 
of time estimated for an average respondent to respond: 193 responses 
at 1 hour (60 minutes) per response.
    (6) An estimate of the total public burden (in hours) associated 
with the collection: 193 annual burden hours.
    (7) An estimate of the total public burden (in cost) associated 
with the collections: $6,370.
