SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Under the direction of Homeland Security 
Presidential Directive-7 (2003), Presidential Policy Directive -21, and 
the National Infrastructure Protection Plan (NIPP 2013); NPPD/IP has 
developed the IP Gateway, a centrally managed repository of 
infrastructure capabilities allowing the Critical Infrastructure 
community to work in conjunction with each other toward the same goals. 
This collection encompasses three IP Gateway functions: General User 
Registration, Chemical Security Awareness Training Registration, and a 
User Satisfaction Survey. Upon requesting access to the IP Gateway, the 
multi-screen registration form requests the user's full name, work 
address, contact information Protected Critical Infrastructure (PCII) 
training status, citizenship status, supervisor and sponsor 
information, and additional questions related to the user's role in 
using the information. Upon registering for Chemical Security Awareness 
Training, a collection form requests the trainee's desired username, 
password, proposed secret question & response, and company type, size, 
name, & location. For the voluntary User Satisfaction Survey, the 
collection form requests information regarding the user's job duties, 
types of information sought via the IP Gateway, access patterns, and 
system usability ratings. The survey information will be used to 
evaluate program and training performance as well as to gather any 
additional requirements for future IP Gateway system updates.
    OMB is particularly interested in comments that:
    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.
