This information is needed to further the Commission's goal of assisting federal, state and Tribal Nation agencies in obtaining better situational awareness regarding the performance of communications networks during disasters. Service providers already file voluntary reports with the FCC 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. Because the FCC anticipates that DIRS and NORS access will be requested together in most cases, it believes that the estimated burden hours and costs for Participating Agencies associated with DIRS access are fully included in the estimates that it has separately submitted as part of its collection on Part 4 of the Commission's Rules Concerning Disruptions to Communications, OMB Control No. 3060-0484. To avoid double-counting the estimated burden hours and costs associated with both collections, the Commission estimates the marginal cost of the Participating Agency aspect of this collection to be zero.

The Commission estimates that neither the total number of service provider respondents nor the number of responses will increase due to the proposed modifications to this information collection. The information collected from Participating Agencies is accounted for in our PRA submission for the NORS (3060-0484) because when they file there, we anticipate that Participating Agencies will request access to NORS and DIRS in the same filing.
