Federal Register / Vol. 84, No. 196 / Wednesday, October 9, 2019 / Notices
This requirement is implemented in
the Federal Acquisition Regulation
(FAR) through the provision at FAR
52.204–24, Representation Regarding
Certain Telecommunications and Video
Surveillance Services or Equipment and
the clause at FAR 52.204–25,
Prohibition on Contracting for Certain
Telecommunications and Video
Surveillance Services or Equipment.
This clearance covers the following
requirements:
FAR 52.204–24 requires an offer or
to represent whether they will provide
any covered telecommunications
equipment or services and if so,
describe in more detail the use of the
covered telecommunications equipment
or services; and
FAR 52.204–25 requires contractors
to report covered telecommunications
equipment, systems and services
identified during performance of a
contract.
DoD, GSA, and NASA request
approval of this information collection
in order to implement the law. The
information will be used by agency
personnel to identify and remove
prohibited equipment, systems, or
services from Government use. Under
the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of
1995, Federal agencies must obtain
approval from the Office of Management
and Budget (OMB) for each collection of
information they conduct or sponsor.
A notice was published in the Federal
Register at 84 FR 40216, on August 13,
2019, as a part of an interim rule under
FAR Case 2018–017, Prohibition on
Contracting for Certain
Telecommunications and Video
Surveillance Services or Equipment.

telecommunications equipment,
systems and services during contract
performance as required by 52.204–25.
Reports are estimated to average 1.5
hour per response, including the time
for reviewing definitions, searching
existing data sources, gathering and
maintaining the data needed, and
completing and reviewing the report.
C. Public Comments
DoD, GSA, and NASA invite
comments on: Whether the proposed
collection of information is necessary
for the proper performance of the
functions of Federal Government
acquisitions, including whether the
information will have practical utility;
the accuracy of the estimate of the
burden of the proposed information
collection; ways to enhance the quality,
utility, and clarity of the information to
be collected; and ways to minimize the
burden of the information collection on
respondents, including the use of
automated collection techniques or
other forms of information technology.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION
: Under the
Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA)
(44 U.S.C. 3501–3520), Federal agencies
must obtain approval from the Office of
Management and Budget (OMB) for each
collection of information they conduct
or sponsor. In addition, the PRA also
requires Federal agencies to provide a
60-day notice in the Federal Register
concerning each proposed collection of
information, including each new
proposed collection, each proposed
extension of existing collection of
information, and each reinstatement of
previously approved information
collection before submitting the
collection to the OMB for approval. To
comply with this requirement, we are
publishing this notice of a proposed
data collection as described below.
The OMB is particularly interested in
comments that will help:
1. 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;
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 submissions
of responses.
5. Assess information collection costs.
Proposed Project
Application Form and Related Forms
for the Operation of the National Death
Index (NDI) (OMB Control No. 0920–
0215, Exp. 12/31/2019)—Revision—
National Center for Health Statistics
(NCHS), Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
Section 306 of the Public Health
Service (PHS) Act (42 U.S.C.), as
amended, authorizes that the Secretary
of Health and Human Services (DHHS),
acting through NCHS, shall collect
statistics on the extent and nature of
illness and disability of the population
of the United States.
The National Death Index (NDI) is a
national database containing identifying
death record information submitted
annually to NCHS by all the state vital
statistics offices, beginning with deaths
in 1979. Searches against the NDI file
provide the states and dates of death,
and the death certificate numbers of
deceased study subjects.
Using the NDI Plus service,
researchers have the option of also
receiving cause of death information for
deceased subjects, thus reducing the
need to request copies of death
certificates from the states. The NDI
Plus option currently provides the
International Classification of Disease
(ICD) codes for the underlying and
multiple causes of death for the years
1979–2018. Health researchers must
complete administrative forms in order
to apply for NDI services, and submit
records of study subjects for computer
matching against the NDI file. A three-
year revision request is submitted to
continue the use of the three
administrative forms (the application
form, repeat request form, and
transmittal form) utilized in the
operation of the National Death Index
(NDI) program. These forms are
submitted by NDI users when applying
for use of the NDI and when actually
using the service. In addition, this
request includes the introduction of
electronic versions that will ultimately
replace the three paper documents, one
of which will include a minor reduction
in the number of data collection items.
There is no cost to respondents except
for their time. The total estimated
annual burden hours are 417. While the
estimated annual number of application
forms has increased from 100 to 120, the
revised estimate of the time required to
complete the application form results in
an overall net decrease by 40 burden
hours from the previously approved 457
hours.
