This information is needed to further the Commission's goal of assisting federal, state and Tribal Nation agencies in obtaining better situation awareness regarding the performance of communications networks during network outages and disasters. Service providers already file mandatory reports with the FCC in NORS when outages of a certain size and duration occur, and voluntary report upon activation of DIRS. The information collected here will allow these reports to be shared on a 'need to know" basis while preserving the confidentiality of the information while advancing public safety goals.

Changing Regulations
From the adoption of the Second Report and Order, there are program changes/increases to the total number of respondents from 965 to 1,065 (+100), the total annual responses increased from 26,795 to 27,395 (+600), the total annual burden hours increased from 53,590 to 54,315 (+625) as a result of the Order. Because information is being collected from Participating Agencies for the first time for purposes for granting them access to NORS, the number of responses from that category of respondents are largely responsible to the burden increases to this collection. The Commission estimates that neither the total number of service provider respondents and responses will increase due to the modifications to this information collection. Service providers will incur a new one-time initial setup cost to meet the requirements of the Second Report and Order and are further explained as in-house costs in Question 12 of this supporting statement.
