ACTION:

Notice.

SUMMARY:

The Department of Labor, as part of its continuing effort to reduce paperwork and respondent burden, conducts a pre-clearance consultation program to provide the general public and Federal agencies with an opportunity to comment on proposed and/or continuing collections of information in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act of 1995 (PRA95). This program helps to ensure that requested data can be provided in the desired format, reporting burden (time and financial resources) is minimized, collection instruments are clearly understood, and the impact of collection requirements on respondents can be properly assessed. The Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) is soliciting comments concerning the proposed revisions to the confidentiality pledge for the following information collections titles.Start Printed Page 88271

I. Background

Under 44 U.S.C. 3506(e), and 44 U.S.C. 3501, the Bureau of Labor Statistics is seeking comments on its revisions to the confidentiality pledges it provides to its respondents under the Confidential Information Protection and Statistical Efficiency Act (44 U.S.C. 3501) (CIPSEA). These revisions are required by the passage and implementation of provisions of the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015 (H.R. 2029, Division N, Title II, Subtitle B, Sec. 223), which require the Secretary of Homeland Security to provide Federal civilian agencies' information technology systems with cybersecurity protection for their Internet traffic.

II. Current Action

Office of Management and Budget clearance is being sought for the information collections listed in the table above.

For each of these information collections, the BLS statistical confidentiality pledges will be modified to include the sentence in bold below.

Per the Federal Cybersecurity Enhancement Act of 2015, Federal information systems are protected from malicious activities through cybersecurity screening of transmitted data.

III. Desired Focus of Comments

The Bureau of Labor Statistics is particularly interested in comments that address the revised pledge language.

Type of Review: Revision, of currently approved collections.

Agency: Bureau of Labor Statistics.
