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: NWHI Mokupapapa Discovery Center Exhibit Evaluation.

OMB Control Number: 0648-0582.

Form Number(s): NA.

Type of Request: Regular submission (revision and extension of a current information collection).

Number of Respondents: 250.

Average Hours per Response: 7 minutes, 30 seconds.

Burden Hours: 31.

Needs and Uses: This request is for a revision and extension of a currently approved information collection. Mokupapapa Discovery Center (Center) is an outreach arm of Papahanaumokuakea Marine National Monument that reaches 60,000 people each year in Hilo, Hawai'i. The Center was created eight years ago to help raise support for the creation of a National Marine Sanctuary in the Northwestern Hawaiian Islands. Since that time, the area has been proclaimed a Marine National Monument and the main messages NOAA is trying to share with the public have changed to better reflect the new monument status, UNESCO World Heritage status and the joint management by the three co-trustees of the Monument. NOAA therefore is seeking to find out if people visiting our Center are receiving our new messages by conducting an optional exit survey. The exit survey is the basis for the information collection revision.

Affected Public: Individuals or households.

Frequency: One time.

Respondent's Obligation: Voluntary.
