OMB Control No. 3060-0809, CALEA, is the main information collection associated with this non-substantive change request which also effects OMB Control Nos. 3060-0917, 3060-0918 & 3060-0862(see justification).This submission is being made for non-substantive changes to an existing information collection pursuant to 44 U.S.C. § 3507.This submission now includes the most current form, FCC Form 161 (see justification).The non-substantive changes requested here are necessary to assist the Commission in fulfilling requirements under the Broadband Deployment Accuracy and Technological Availability (DATA) Act.In this legislation, Congress directed the FCC to “develop a process through which the Commission can collect verified data for use in [its] coverage maps from [ ] State, local, and Tribal governmental entities that are primarily responsible for mapping or tracking broadband internet access service coverage for a State, unit of local government, or Indian Tribe, as applicable.” 47 U.S.C. § 642(a)(2)(A). The Commission will use its Commission Registration System (CORES) to authenticate that a particular user and FCC Registration Number (FRN) is an authorized representative of a state, local or Tribal governmental entity that files data under section 642(a)(2)(A).We therefore would like to add a “Tribal Govt Agency” Entity Type to FCC Form 160 (OMB 3060-0917) and Form 161 (OMB 3060-0918) and to the online version of these forms.This submission is being made for a proposed non-substantive change to an existing information collection pursuant to 44 U.S.C. § 3507.This submission seeks to make a non-substantive change to reflect a change in burden hours for this information collection as a result of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) June 22, 2021 Order adopting changes to requirements for the FCC’s Commission Registration System (CORES). See Amendment of Part 1 of the Commission’s Rules, Concerning Practice and Procedure, Amendment of CORES Registration System, Report and Order, FCC 21-79; https://www.fcc.gov/document/2021-cores-modification-order. Section 1.8002 of the FCC’s rules require an FCC Registration Number (FRN) to be supplied by anyone doing business with the FCC, including, but not limited to, remitting payments, applying for licenses, participating in auctions, and filing certain applications. Registrants use the FCC’s system called CORES to obtain FRNs with the associated passwords necessary to enter into a variety of transactions with the FCC and for participating in FCC programs. As of 2016, the FCC has maintained a legacy online version of CORES that does not require email address information and a new version of CORES that does require email address information. Section 1.8002(b)(1) of the Commission’s rules lists the information currently required from entities seeking to register for an FRN. The rule is amended by the June 2021 Report and Order to require email address information as part of the registration information and will allow the FCC to retire the legacy version of CORES. Section 1.8002(b)(2) requires that the information used to register for an FRN be kept current by the registrants. Registrants that obtained their FRN through legacy CORES and have not associated a valid e-mail address with their FRN, may continue to use that FRN without an associated valid e-mail address for a limited period but will be gradually transitioned to the new system and will be required provide email address information at some point over the next (approximately) 1 to 3 years. This information that applicants (entities) submit on FCC Form 161 is used to change or update information in the CORES system for entity's name, address, Taxpayer Identification Number (TIN), telephone number, email, fax, contact representative address, telephone number, email and fax. The Commission Registration System (CORES) assigns each entity doing business with the Commission a FCC Registration Number (FRN).
