The assessment is structured by the 32 core capabilities from the 2015 National Preparedness Goal. States, territories, urban areas, and tribes provide information on capability targets, their current capability levels and capability gaps for each core capability. Respondent States, Tribes, territories, and urban areas gather the information and complete the THIRA and SPR following the “Comprehensive Preparedness Guide (CPG) 201, Third Edition.”

The changes to the reported hour burden and cost burden associated with the information collection are due to changes in the number of respondents to the THIRA/SPR. Tribal respondents increased from 24 to 39 total tribes. States, territories, and urban areas complete THIRA/SPR in its entirety while tribes complete the THIRA/SPR but only for some of the core capabilities (hence completing the entire THIRA/SPR corresponds with a burden increase while completing it only for a subset of capabilities corresponds with a burden decrease). Further, as explained in 12a, FEMA used approved burden hours as there was no change in hours estimations from previously approved assessment. This yielded an average increase in burden hours per jurisdiction of 10.83 percent. This increased burden hour estimate was used to generate the updated cost burdens, aided by cost breakouts outlined in question 13. Finally, the total number of jurisdictions required to complete a THIRA/SPR increased (from 113 to 128), resulting in an increase in burden. Accordingly, this yields a total hourly burden of 869 hours for each of the 56 States and territories that complete THIRA/SPR, along with the 33 urban areas that are now required to complete a THIRA/SPR, for a total of 77,341 hours. The respondent burden for tribes completing the THIRA/SPR is 290 hours for each of the 39 tribal jurisdictions, for a total burden of 11,310 hours. Additionally, all 128 respondents are asked to participate in after action calls lasting one hour for a total of 128 hours. Combined, the total respondent hours for THIRA/SPR, THIRA only, and participation in after action calls are 88,764 hours. This is an increase of 4,350 over the previous 84,414 hours currently on the OMB inventory. This increase accounts for 15 additional Tribal Nations now completing the entire THIRA/SPR (not only THIRA).
