The regulatory provisions implementing E.O. 13496 (29 CFR part 471) include the language of the required notices, and they explain posting and contractual requirements, the complaint process, the investigatory process, and sanctions, penalties, and remedies that may be imposed if the contractor or subcontractor fails to comply with its obligations under the Order. Specifically, 29 CFR part 471.11(c) sets forth the procedures that the Department must use when accepting written complaints alleging that a contractor doing business with the Federal government has failed to post the notice required by the Executive Order. The Department continues to estimate a total of 10 respondents with an equal amount of responses. Since the ICR was last approved in 2019, the Department has received 1 complaint. The Department maintains the estimate of 10 complaints for purposes of this renewal request. The Department continues to estimate that it will take an employee 1.28 hours per complaint, for a total of 12.8, rounded to 13 hours. Additionally, employees will incur costs of $0.62 per complaint in capital/ start-up costs ($0.58 for standard-sized, rectangular envelopes postage in January 2022 1 + $0.03 for an envelope + $0.01 for paper) for a total cost of $6.20. (Although employees will submit many if not all complaints via email, the Department assumes, conservatively, that it will receive all via mail.) The total cost for the estimated 10 complaints is therefore $6.20. There are no ongoing operation/maintenance costs associated with this information collection. Comments submitted in response to this notice will be summarized and/or included in the request for Office of Management and Budget approval of the information collection request; they will also become a matter of public record. This information collection is subject to the PRA. A Federal agency generally cannot conduct or sponsor a collection of information, and the public is generally not required to respond to an information collection, unless the OMB approves it and displays a currently valid OMB Control Number. In addition, notwithstanding any other provisions of law, no person shall generally be subject to penalty for failing to comply with a 1 See: https://www.usps.com/business/prices.htm.

DOL seeks PRA authorization for this information collection for three (3) years. OMB authorization for an ICR cannot be for more than three (3) years without renewal.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Title of Collection: Higher Education Research and Development Survey. OMB Approval Number: 3145–0100. Expiration Date of Current Approval: August 31, 2022. Type of Request: Intent to seek approval to extend an information collection for three years. Abstract: Established within NSF by the America COMPETES Reauthorization Act of 2010 § 505, codified in the NSF Act of 1950, as amended, the National Center for Science and Engineering Statistics (NCSES)—one of 13 principal federal statistical agencies—serves as a central Federal clearinghouse for the collection, interpretation, analysis, and dissemination of objective data on science, engineering, technology, and research and development for use by practitioners, researchers, policymakers, and the public. The Higher Education Research and Development (R&D) Survey (formerly known as the Survey of R&D Expenditures at Universities and Colleges) originated in fiscal year (FY) 1954 and has been conducted annually since FY 1972. The survey represents one facet of the research and development component of NCSES’s statistical program, which also includes R&D surveys on the business, federal government, higher education, state government, and nonprofit sectors. Use of the Information: The proposed project will continue the annual survey cycle for three years. The Higher Education R&D Survey will provide continuity of statistics on R&D expenditures by source of funding, type of R&D (basic research, applied research, or development), and field of research, with separate data requested on research equipment by field. Further breakdowns are collected on funds passed through to subrecipients and funds received as a subrecipient, and on R&D expenditures by field from specific federal agency sources. The survey also requests total R&D expenditures funded from foreign sources, R&D within an institution’s medical school, clinical PO 00000 Frm 00050 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 18399 trial expenditures, R&D by type of funding mechanism (contracts vs. grants), and R&D by cost category (salaries, equipment, software, etc.). Since FY 2020, the survey has requested headcounts and full-time equivalents of R&D personnel (researchers, R&D technicians, and R&D support staff). Data are published in NSF’s annual publication series Higher Education Research and Development, available on the web at http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/ srvyherd/. Expected respondents: The FY 2022 Higher Education R&D Survey will be administered to approximately 650 institutions. In addition, a shorter version of the survey asking for R&D expenditures by source of funding and broad field will be sent to approximately 275 institutions spending at least $150 thousand but less than $1 million on R&D in their previous fiscal year. A short population review screener is also sent to approximately 125 institutions before the survey cycle to identify potential eligible institutions not already in the survey frame. Finally, a survey requesting R&D expenditures by source of funds, cost categories, and type of R&D will be administered to the 43 Federally Funded Research and Development Centers. Estimate of burden: The survey is a fully automated web data collection effort and is handled primarily by administrators in university sponsored programs and accounting offices. To minimize burden, institutions are provided with an abundance of guidance and resources on the web and can respond via downloadable spreadsheet if desired. Each institution’s record is pre-loaded with the 2 previous years of comparable data that facilitate editing and trend checking. Response to this voluntary survey has exceeded 95 percent each year. The average burden estimate is 64 hours for the approximately 650 institutions reporting at least $1 million in R&D expenditures, 8 hours for the approximately 275 institutions reporting less than $1 million, 1 hour for the approximately 125 institutions in the population screener, and 11 hours for the 43 organizations completing the FFRDC survey. The total calculated burden across all forms is 44,398 hours. Comments: Comments are invited on (a) whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the Agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Agency’s estimate of the burden of the proposed collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity E:\FR\FM\30MRN1.SGM 30MRN1
