SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

OMB regulations at 5 CFR 1320, which implement provisions of the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13), require that interested members of the public and affected agencies have an opportunity to comment on information collection and recordkeeping activities [see 5 CFR 1320.8(d)]. OSM has submitted a request to OMB to renew its approval of the collection of information found in its Nomination and Request for Payment Form for OSM Technical Training Courses. OSM is requesting a 3-year term of approval for this collection. This collection is required to obtain or retain a benefit.

An agency may not conduct or sponsor, and a person is not required to respond to, a collection of information unless it displays a currently valid OMB control number. The OMB control number for this collection of information is 1029-0120. State and Tribal regulatory and reclamation employees and industry personnel are required to respond to obtain a benefit.

As required by 5 CFR 1320.8(d), a Federal Register notice soliciting comments on this collection of information was published on December 11, 2012 (77 FR 73673). No comments were received.
