Because of the substantial risk to life, safety, or health of the workforce and the public, EPA requests an emergency approval to collect the necessary information on vaccination status and testing results from detailees, interns, volunteers, grantee recipients and contractors that perform work in EPA facilities. Each item of information requested is based on CDC or industry best practice for tracking vaccination. This information is necessary to identify the vaccination status of EPA personnel and testing results of individuals entering EPA facilities. , Iincluding contractors, interns, grantees, and volunteers, enables EPA to capture the total workforce and take appropriate action.
Pursuant to section 3507(j) of the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) (44 U.S.C. 3501 et seq.), as implemented in the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) regulations at 5 CFR §1320.13, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is hereby requesting emergency processing of an information collection necessary for vaccination status and testing results of EPA employees, contractors and grantee recipients that work in EPA facilities. Following the normal clearance procedures for approval of this information collection during the COVID-19 pandemic response will delay the Agency’s ability collect vaccination status and testing results and to adequately protect its workforce. EPA certifies the requirements of 5 CFR 1320.13(a) are met and it is vital for this collection to be implemented immediately, because: (1) this information is necessary to protect EPA’s workforce, (2) public harm is reasonably likely to result if normal clearance procedures are followed, and (3) an unanticipated event has occurred.
