Institute of Museum and Library Services; Submission to OMB for Review, Comment Request, Proposed Collection: User Satisfaction With Access to Government Information and Services at Public Libraries and Public Access Computing Centers
The Institute of Museum and Library Services announces the following information collection has been submitted to the Office of Management and Budget for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. Currently the Institute of Museum and Library Services is soliciting comments concerning a research study to assess user satisfaction with access to government information and services at public libraries and public access computing centers. Dates: Comments must be received by April 16, 2007. The OMB is particularly interested in comments which: Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information will have practical utility; 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; Enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 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 submission of responses.
Office of the General Counsel; National Endowment for the Humanities Implementation of OMB Guidance on Nonprocurement Debarment and Suspension
The National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) implements Office of Management and Budget (OMB) guidance on nonprocurement suspension and debarment, issued on August 31, 2005 [70 FR 51863], by adopting the guidelines in a new part in title 2 of the CFR, the Government-wide title recently established for OMB guidance on grants and agreements, and removing 45 CFR part 1169, the part containing the NEH implementation of the government-wide common rule on nonprocurement debarment and suspension. This regulatory action would make no substantive change in NEH policy or procedures for nonprocurement debarment and suspension.
