Download as PDF jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with NOTICES1 Federal Register / Vol. 87, No. 59 / Monday, March 28, 2022 / Notices instrument or form, if applicable. The display of OMB control numbers for certain EPA regulations is consolidated in 40 CFR part 9. Abstract: This ICR describes the burden activities for the electronic collection of information for the preaward burden activity for creating a work plan and the post-award and afterthe-grant award activities related to reporting accomplishments to implement EPA’s FIFRA State and Tribal Assistance Grant (STAG) program (7 U.S.C. 136u). In 2019, a workgroup comprised of EPA, state and tribal representatives converted the FIFRA Work Plan and Report Template (FIFRA Template), which was in Excel, into a pilot program of a web-based system housed in the Central Data Exchange (CDX) platform, called the FIFRA Grant Database (FGD). When the permanent use of the pilot program is approved by OMB, then the use of the FGD will become mandatory, replacing the excel web-based system entirely. This ICR also augments the ICR entitled ‘‘EPA’s General Regulation for Assistance Programs ICR’’ (OMB Control No. 2030–0020; EPA ICR No. 0938.18) which accounts for the current PRA burden for the minimum management requirements for all recipients of EPA grants or cooperative agreements (assistance agreements). This ICR provides the burden assessment for the FIFRA program specific activities associated with using a standardized online template for only the STAG program reporting. The ICR supporting statement, which is available in the docket along with other related materials, provides a detailed explanation of the collection activities and the burden estimate that is only briefly summarized in this document. Burden statement: The annual public reporting and recordkeeping burden for this collection of information is estimated to average 87.55 hours per response. Burden is defined in 5 CFR 1320.3(b). Respondents/affected entities: Entities potentially affected by this ICR are state, local governments, Indian tribes, and U.S. territories that are grantees of Federal funds participating in the FIFRA STAG program. The corresponding North American Industry Classification System (NAICS) codes for respondents include: 9241 (Administration of Environmental Quality programs); and 92115 (American Indians and Alaska Native Tribal Governments). VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:30 Mar 25, 2022 Jkt 256001 Respondent’s obligation to respond: Mandatory, as per FIFRA sections 23(a)(1) and 23(a)(2)). Frequency of response: Biannually. Total estimated number of potential respondents: 81. Total estimated average number of responses for each respondent: 2. Total estimated annual burden hours: 26,195 hours. Total estimated annual costs: $ 2,102,179, which includes an estimated cost of $ 0 for non-burden hour paperwork costs, e.g., capital investment or maintenance and operational costs. III. Are there changes in the estimates from the last approval? Due to an error, the annual burden hours for ‘‘per-event’’ were incorrectly estimated at 46.15 hours to conduct STAG grant activities. The correct number is 323.4 hours ‘‘per event’’ for conducting STAG activities. For this renewal ICR, there is no increase over the currently approved ICR in terms of the per event annual paperwork burden hours for grantees to use the FIFRA grant Database. The FIFRA STAG Grant online template annual overall burden since the renewal ICR remains the same; all 81 recipients may use the reporting tool and instructions. The overall burden hours are therefore also the same at 26,195 hours. The burden cost in this ICR has increased relative to the previous ICR due to updating the wages. These changes are characterized as adjustments. In addition, OMB has requested that EPA move towards using the 18question format for ICR Supporting Statements used by other federal agencies and departments and that is based on the submission instructions established by OMB in 1995, replacing the alternate format developed by EPA and OMB prior to 1995. The Agency does not expect this change in format to result in substantive changes to the information collection activities or related estimated burden and costs. IV. What is the next step in the process for this ICR? EPA will consider comments received and amend the ICR as appropriate. The final ICR package will then be submitted to OMB for review and approval pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.12. EPA will issue another Federal Register document pursuant to 5 CFR 1320.5(a)(1)(iv) to announce the submission of the ICR to OMB and the opportunity to submit additional comments to OMB.
