AGENCY: National Protection and Programs Directorate.

ACTION: 60-Day notice and request for comments; new information 
collection request 1670-NEW.


SUMMARY: The Department of Homeland Security, National Protection and 
Programs Directorate, has submitted the following Information 
Collection Request (ICR) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) 
for review and clearance in accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (Pub. L. 104-13, 44 U.S.C. Chapter 35).

DATES: Comments are encouraged and will be accepted until November 13, 
2009. This process is conducted in accordance with 5 CFR 1320.1.

ADDRESSES: Written comments and questions about this Information 
Collection Request should be forwarded to Department of Homeland 
Security, National Protection and Programs Directorate, Infrastructure 
Protection, Attn.: Veronica Heller, Team Lead, Planning and Policy 
Integration, Ballston One, 4601 N. Fairfax Drive 5th Floor, Arlington, 
Virginia 22203.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The Critical Infrastructure Key Resources 
(CIKR) Asset Protection Technical Assistance Program (CAPTAP) offers 
State and local first responders, emergency managers, and other 
homeland security officials training to develop comprehensive CIKR 
protection programs in their respective jurisdictions; access to the 
Constellation/Automated Critical Asset Management System (C/ACAMS) 
tools for using CIKR asset data, prevention and protection information; 
and incident response and recovery plans to make their communities 
safer. To ensure that interested parties appropriately advance this 
mission, C/ACAMS provides CAPTAP Train-the-Trainer (TTT) sessions to 
State and local government officials to so that they may then train 
their colleagues through CAPTAP services. The survey measures customer 
satisfaction with the training provided through the CAPTAP TTT course. 
The C/ACAMS Program Management Office (PMO) is administered out of the 
Infrastructure Information Collection Division (IICD) in the Office of 
Infrastructure Protection (IP).
    The survey data collected is for internal C/ACAMS PMO, IICD and IP 
use only. The C/ACAMS PMO evaluates the CAPTAP TTT customer survey to 
determine levels of customer satisfaction with the CAPTAP TTT training 
and areas in need of improvement. The survey supports data-based 
decision-making because it evaluates quantitative and qualitative data 
to identify improvements and identify significant issues based on what 
customers' experience. Obtaining current fact-based actionable data 
about the training allows the program to recalibrate its resources to 
address new or emerging issues.
    The Office of Management and Budget is particularly interested in 
comments which:
    1. Evaluate whether the proposed collection of information 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 of 
the proposed collection of information, including the validity of the 
methodology and assumptions used;
    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, e.g., permitting electronic 
submissions of responses.
