SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY POLICY
OFFICE
Orbital Debris Research and
Development Plan
AGENCY
: Office of Science and
Technology Policy (OSTP).
ACTION
: Notice of Request for Comment
(RFC).
SUMMARY
: On behalf of the National
Science and Technology Council
(NSTC), Committee on Homeland and
National Security, Subcommittee on
Space Weather Security and Hazards,
Interagency Working Group on Orbital
Debris Research and Development,
OSTP requests input from all interested
parties on the Orbital Debris Research
and Development (R&D) Plan, which
will inform the Orbital Debris Research
and Development Interagency Working
Group’s activity for building out an
implementation plan.
DATES
: Responses are due by December
31, 2021.
ADDRESSES
: Interested individuals and
organizations should submit comments
electronically to Ezinne Uzo-Okoro at
OrbitalDebris@ostp.eop.gov. Further
information may be received by calling
202–456–4444.
Instructions: Response to this RFC is
voluntary. Respondents need not reply
to all questions listed. Each individual
or institution is requested to submit
only one response. OSTP and/or NSTC
may post responses to this RFC, without
change, on a Federal website. OSTP,
therefore, requests that no business
proprietary information, copyrighted
information, or personally identifiable
information be submitted in response to
this RFC. Please note that the United
States Government will not pay for
response preparation, or for the use of
any information contained in the
response.
SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: The
Orbital Debris Interagency Working
Group has commenced the development
of an implementation plan to be
released in 2022. Pursuant to 42 U.S.C.
6622, OSTP is soliciting public input
through this RFC to obtain
recommendations from a wide range of
stakeholders, including representatives
from diverse industries, academia, other
relevant organizations and institutions,
and the general public. The public input
provided in response to this RFC will
inform OSTP and NSTC as they work
with Federal agencies and other
stakeholders to develop an Orbital
Debris implementation plan. This
implementation plan is building off the
R&D plan published in January 2021.
Implementing this plan will close
critical gaps in the knowledge and
capabilities needed to meet current and
growing challenges of orbital debris risk
management. The R&D Plan organizes
the orbital debris challenges and
research topical areas into three main
areas of orbital debris research and
development: limiting debris generation
by design, tracking and characterizing
debris, and remediating or repurposing
debris. OSTP seeks public input from
the R&D community on what R&D areas
are priorities for government-sponsored
initiatives/coordination, the roles of
academia, nonprofit, and industry actors
in addressing these actions, and
potential avenues for coordination
between actors across public and private
sectors.
Questions To Inform Development of
the Plan
OSTP seeks responses to the
following questions to improve
government coordination and to provide
long-term guidance for Federal
programs and activities in support of the
United States Orbital Debris Research &
Development implementation plan.
(1) The extent to which progress in
the R&D topical areas identified in the
Orbital Debris R&D Plan will address
the orbital debris challenges. What, if
any, R&D areas are missing?
(2) Among the topic areas listed in the
R&D Plan, what are the highest priority
R&D areas (up to five) for making
progress in addressing the challenges
posed by orbital debris to the space
environment?
(3) What near-term actions can be
taken by the Federal government to
make progress towards high priority
R&D areas? How would these specific
actions address the orbital debris
challenges in the near term?
(4) What R&D activities would be
most valuable in the long-term or would
be the most transformative to addressing
orbital debris challenges?
(5) What are the opportunities to
partner with entities outside the Federal
government, nationally and
internationally? What are the viable and
potentially innovative mechanisms to
partner most effectively?

an annual report pursuant to Section
13(a) or 15 (d) of the Exchange Act (15
U.S.C. 78m(a) or 78o(d)). The

is used by investors in making
investment decisions with respect to the
securities of such Canadian companies.
We estimate that Form 40–F takes
approximately 431.42 hours per
response and is filed by approximately
132 respondents. We estimate that 25%
of the 429.93 hours per response
(107.855 hours) is prepared by the
issuer for a total reporting burden of
14,237 (107.855 hours per response ×
132 responses).
Written 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 will have practical utility;
(b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimate
of the burden imposed by the collection
of information; (c) ways to enhance the
quality, utility, and clarity of the
information collected; and (d) ways to
minimize the burden of the collection of
information on respondents, including
through the use of automated collection
techniques or other forms of information
technology. Consideration will be given
to comments and suggestions submitted
in writing within 60 days of this
publication.
An agency may not conduct or
sponsor, and a person is not required to
respond to, a collection of information
unless it displays a currently valid
control number.

Interagency Statement on Sound Practices
Notice is hereby given that pursuant
to the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995
(‘‘PRA’’) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.) the
Securities and Exchange Commission
(‘‘Commission’’) has submitted to the
Office of Management and Budget
(‘‘OMB’’) a request for approval of
extension of the previously approved
collection of information provided for in
the Interagency Statement on Sound
Practices Concerning Elevated Risk
Complex Structured Finance Activities
(‘‘Statement’’) under the Securities
Exchange Act of 1934 (15 U.S.C. 78a et
seq.) (‘‘Exchange Act’’) and the
Investment Advisers Act of 1940 (15
U.S.C. 80b et seq.) (‘‘Advisers Act’’).
The Statement was issued by the
Commission, together with the Office of
the Comptroller of the Currency, the
Board of Governors of the Federal
Reserve System, the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation, and the Office of
Thrift Supervision (together, the
‘‘Agencies’’), in May 2006. The
Statement describes the types of internal
controls and risk management
procedures that the Agencies believe are
particularly effective in assisting
financial institutions to identify and
address the reputational, legal, and
other risks associated with elevated risk
complex structured finance
transactions.
The primary purpose of the Statement
is to ensure that these transactions
receive enhanced scrutiny by the
institution and to ensure that the
institution does not participate in illegal
or inappropriate transactions.
The Commission estimates that
approximately 5 registered broker-
dealers or investment advisers will
spend an average of approximately 25
hours per year complying with the
Statement. Thus, the total time burden
is estimated to be approximately 125
hours per year.
An agency may not conduct or
sponsor, and a person is not required to
respond to, a collection of information
under the PRA unless it displays a
currently valid OMB control number.
