Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request
    The Department of Commerce will submit to the Office of Management
and Budget (OMB) for clearance the following proposal for collection of
information under the provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act (44
U.S.C. Chapter 35).
    Agency: National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
    Title: NOAA Teacher at Sea Application.
    OMB Control Number: 0648-0283.
    Form Number(s): NOAA Form 57-10-01.
    Type of Request: Regular submission (revision and extension of a
currently approved information collection).
    Number of Respondents: 375.
    Average Hours per Response: Application: 1 hr. 15 min;
Recommendations: 15 minutes; NOAA Health Services Questionnaire and
Tuberculosis Screening Document: 45 minutes; Follow-up Report: 2 hours.
    Burden Hours: 781.
    Needs and Uses: Consistent with the support for research and
education under the National Marine Sanctuaries Act (16 U.S.C. 32 Sec.
1440) and other coastal and marine protection legislation, NOAA
provides educators an opportunity to gain first-hand experience with
field research activities through the Teacher at Sea Program. Through
this program, educators spend up to 3 weeks at sea on a NOAA research
vessel, participating in an ongoing research project with NOAA
    The application solicits information from interested educators, and
participants in the program are selected following review of their
application. The application includes two recommendation forms: One
from the applicant's Administrator and one from a colleague. The NOAA
Health Services Questionnaire (NHSQ) and Tuberculosis Screening
Document (TSD) is a requirement of anyone going to sea and must be
completed by teachers who are selected for the program. Once an
educator is selected and participates on a cruise, s/he writes a report
detailing the events of the cruise and his/her ideas for classroom
activities based on what was learned while at sea. These materials are
then made available to other educators so they may benefit from the
experience, without actually going to sea. NOAA does not collect
[[Page 50024]]
information from this universe of respondents for any other purpose.
    The revisions to this collection included updating the
miscellaneous costs and correcting the time to complete the NOAA Health
Services Questionnaire and Tuberculosis Screening Document to more
accurately reflect the correct burden.
    Affected Public: Individuals or households.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
