Science and Technology Directorate, Department of Homeland Security.
Notice of information collection; request for comment.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) invites the general public to comment on updated data collection forms for DHS Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate's Project 25 (P25) Compliance Assessment Program (CAP): Supplier's Declaration of Compliance (SDoC) (DHS Form 10044 (6/08)) and an accompanying Summary Test Report (STR) (DHS Form 10056 (9/08)). The collections are posted on the dhs.gov website (https://www.dhs.gov/science-and-technology/p25-cap). The attacks of September 11, 2001, and the destruction of Hurricane Katrina made apparent the need for emergency response radio systems that can interoperate, regardless of which organization manufactured the equipment. Per congressional direction, DHS and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) developed the P25 CAP to improve the emergency response community's confidence in purchasing land mobile radio (LMR) equipment built to P25 LMR standards. Equipment suppliers provide the information to publicly attest to their products' compliance with a specific set of P25 standards. The SDoC, and its STR, which substantiates the declaration, constitutes a company's formal, public attestation of compliance with the standards for the equipment. In turn, first responders at local, tribal, state, and federal levels across multiple disciplines including law enforcement, fire, and emergency medical services personnel, will use this information to identify P25 compliant communications system products. The P25 CAP Program Manager performs a simple administrative review to ensure the documentation is complete and accurate in accordance with the current P25 CAP processes.
Comments are encouraged and accepted until July 31, 2019.
Interested persons are invited to submit written comments on this proposed information collection to the Office of Information and Regulatory Affairs, Office of Management and Budget. Comments should be addressed to the OMB Desk Officer, via electronic mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
