Title: Transportation Worker Identification Credential; Satisfaction and Effectiveness Measurement Data Collection Instruments.

Type of Request: New collection.

OMB Control Number: Not yet assigned.

Forms(s): Transportation Worker Survey; Port Security Interview Guide.

Affected Public: Transportation Workers; Lead Stakeholders.

Abstract: TSA intends to evaluate and test certain technologies and business processes in the Technology Evaluation and Prototype Phases of the pilot project to fully develop the Transportation Worker Identification Credential (TWIC). TSA will gather demographic information required to issue credentials to a select group of transportation workers and then administer two instruments to collect data on the effectiveness of the TWIC credential. The first instrument will be a survey of a small representative percent of the TWIC users and the second instrument will be interviews conducted with the lead stakeholder at each site participating in the Technology Evaluation and Prototype Phases. Surveys and interviews will be voluntary and anonymous.

Number of Respondents: 30,780.

Estimated Annual Burden Hours: 5,195.

TSA is soliciting comments to—

(1) Evaluate whether the proposed information requirement 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;

(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.
