    Title: National 911 Profile Database.
    OMB Control Number: 2127-0679.
    Type of Request: Renewal/New of an information collection.
    Abstract: The National 911 Profile Database is funded by the 
National 911 Program, which is housed within the Office of Emergency 
Medical Services at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 
part of the U.S. Department of Transportation. The National 911 Program 
is proposing to continue to collect and aggregate information from 
State level reporting entities that can be used to measure the progress 
of 911 authorities across the country in upgrading their existing 
operations--and migrating to--digital, internet-Protocol-based 
emergency communication networks. The data will be maintained in a 
``National 911 Profile Database.''
    One of the objectives of the National 911 Program is to develop, 
collect, and disseminate information concerning practices, procedures, 
and technology used in the implementation of 911 services and to 
support 911 Public Safety Answering Points (PSAPs) and related State 
and local agencies for 911 deployment and operations. The National 911 
Profile Database can be used to follow the progress of 911 authorities 
in enhancing their existing systems and implementing next-generation 
networks for more advanced systems. The information can also be used to 
identify ways in which the National 911 Program can support State and 
local 911 authorities in the transition process.
    Affected Public: Under this proposed effort, the National 911 
Program would specifically request reporting entities to voluntarily 
collect and annually report the data described above utilizing a Web-
based data collection tool. Reporting entities are State-level 911 
program officials, and the data reported will reflect State-level 
aggregated data.
    Estimated Number of Respondents: The total maximum number of 
respondents is identified as 56, including the 50 States and the six 
U.S. Territories of Guam, U.S. Minor Outlying Islands, American Samoa, 
Mariana Islands, U.S. Virgin Islands, and Puerto Rico.
    Frequency: The reporting entities will be requested to submit data 
annually relating to their State or territory, using the Web-based tool 
described above.
    Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: NHTSA estimates that 
submitting responses to the questions included in the proposed survey 
instrument utilizing the Web-based tool would require an average of 98 
hours per state to collect, aggregate and submit. Estimating the 
maximum number of respondents to be 56, this would result in a total 
burden of 5,488 hours. The respondents would not incur any reporting 
costs from the information collection beyond the time it takes to 
gather the information, prepare it for reporting, and then populate the 
Web-based data collection tool. The respondents also would not incur 
any recordkeeping burden or recordkeeping costs from the information 
collection. The total estimated costs to respondents or record-keepers 
are based on the following: The total hour burden of the collection of 
information equaling 5,488 hours. Respondents will be State, territory, 
and tribal government management personnel. To estimate reasonable 
staff expenses to respond to this information collection, the Agencies 
reviewed the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) Occupational Outlook 
Handbook and determined that the Administrative Services Manager 
description closely aligns with the positions of recipient staff 
responsible for completing this request. BLS lists a median salary of 
$86,100 annually, amounting to $41.40 per hour. There are no capital, 
start-up, or annual operation and maintenance costs involved in the 
collection of information. Total cost based on hour's burden equals 
$227,203.20.
    Public Comments Invited: You are asked to comment on any aspects of 
this information collection, including (a) whether the proposed 
collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of 
the functions of the Department and whether the information will have 
practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the Department's estimate of the 
burden of the proposed information collection; (c) ways to enhance the 
quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; and 
(d) ways to minimize the burden of the collection of information on 
respondents, including the use of automated collection techniques or 
other forms of information technology.

    Authority:  44 U.S.C. Section 3506(c)(2)(A).

    Issued in Washington, DC, on February 9, 2018.

Associate Administrator, Research and Program Development.
