Start Preamble

AGENCY:

Department of Energy.

Start Printed Page 66619

ACTION:

Notice and request for OMB review and comment.

SUMMARY:

The Department of Energy (DOE) has submitted the proposed collection of information described in this Notice to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) for review and approval in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35). These forms will certify to DOE that respondents were advised of the requirements for occupying or continuing to occupy a Human Reliability Program (HRP) position. The HRP is a new program which merges the Personnel Security Assurance Program (PSAP) and the Personnel Assurance Program (PAP) into one DOE human reliability program. The HRP forms will be identical to the OMB approved PSAP forms, just changing the name of the program. In addition to the above, the DOE has requested approval of two new forms, the HRP Certification form and the HRP Alcohol Testing form. The HRP Certification form is used internally to assure that an individual in an HRP position has met all of the annual program requirements. The HRP Alcohol Testing form is identical to the Department of Transportation (DOT) alcohol testing form with the only change being the insertion of the HRP in place of the DOT.

DATES:

Comments regarding this collection must be received on or before December 2, 2002. If you anticipate that you will be submitting comments, but find it difficult to do so within the time period allowed by this Notice, please advise the OMB Desk Officer of your intention to make a submission as soon as possible. The Desk Officer may be telephoned at (202) 395-7318. In addition, please notify the DOE contact listed in this Notice.
